How about HD 8530M? Im going to buy a laptop with Intel HD 4000 and HD 8530M and I cant find any guide, any kext for HD 8000M series. If there's a kext for it, will it work on dual vga laptop, or I must disable it like nVidia optimus laptop?

 

Sorry for English.

You will be pathfinder for the card.

I think 8000M is actually 7000.

Hi Slice, I hope you can help me.

I have an HP G62 with ATi Radeon HD5470M.

The problem is that neither HDMI nor VGA works.

 

I decoded my video bios (extracted from AIDA64) with radeon_bios_decoder and redsock_bios_decoder.

HP Safina PARK Pro DDR3 64Mx16 512MB                                        

Subsystem Vendor ID: 103c
       Subsystem ID: 143d
Object Header Structure Size: 199
Connector Object Table Offset: 34
Router Object Table Offset: 0
Encoder Object Table Offset: 99
Display Path Table Offset: 12
Connector Object Id [14] which is [LVDS]
	encoder obj id [0x1e] which is [INTERNAL_UNIPHY (osx txmit 0x10 [duallink 0x0] enc 0x0)] linkb: false
Connector Object Id [12] which is [HDMI_TYPE_A]
	encoder obj id [0x20] which is [INTERNAL_UNIPHY1 (osx txmit 0x11 [duallink 0x1] enc 0x2)] linkb: false
Connector Object Id [5] which is [VGA]
	encoder obj id [0x15] which is [INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (osx txmit 0x00 enc 0x10?)] linkb: false

HP Safina PARK Pro DDR3 64Mx16 512MB                                        

PCI ID: 1002:68e0
Connector at index 0

	Encoder [@offset 45326]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY (0x1e)
	i2cid [@offset 45396]: 0x96, OSX senseid: 0x7

	Type [@offset 45332]: HDMI-A (11)

	Encoder [@offset 45346]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (0x15)
	i2cid [@offset 45446]: 0x90, OSX senseid: 0x1

So I patched the connectors in this way:

 

LVDS:

ATY,ControlFlags 40  00  00  00

02 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 09 01 00 00 10 00 00 07
 
HDMI:
Connector Type 00  08  00  00
ATY,ControlFlags 00  02  00  00
Features 00  01
Unknown 00  00
Transmitter 11
Encoder 02
Hotplug ID 01
Sense ID 03
 
00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 11 02 01 03
 
VGA:
Connector Type 10  00  00  00
ATY,ControlFlags 10  00  00  00
Features 00  01
Unknown 00  00
Transmitter 00
Encoder 10
Hotplug ID 02
Sense ID 01
 
10 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 10 02 01
 
I added the connector data in Clover's configuration file and I set the framebuffer to 'Hoolock'.
I set DualLink on 0, Inject/ATI on true and InjectEDID, LoadVBios and PatchVBios on true. I set the CustomEDID data with the EDID token from Windows.
 
Here are my config.plist and my VBIOS.

@giofrida

I think you did all correct.

I may propose additionally check if do the same with FB Alouatta that is initially for mobile unlike Hoolock.

And I think VGA 10 00 is not very good. You may use DVI-I instead ( 00 02 ).

Well, I changed the framebuffer from Hoolock to Alouatta. Then I changed the ATIConnectorsData with Alouatta's personality.

 

Rebooted.. no changes at all: HDMI and VGA don't work.

 

Then I tried changing VGA (10 00) to DVI-I (00 02).

 

Rebooted: OS X's GUI flickered. HDMI and VGA don't work.

But may be  you didn't inject your graphics at all? I don't see what you do as I don't see your report.

People said that such cards HD3xxx may probably works only on 10.5.8.

But I found nothing about Mobility HD3470.

As for me I did an OpenGL even on MobilityRadeon9000IGP in 10.4.11 but this is a very complex story.

Hello, I have a question and if someone is kind enough to answer.

My laptop is Dell Studio XPS 1640 |c2d P8700 , Mobility Radeon 4670.

With clover I managed to get QE/CI working, and displays correctly on external monitor (D-SUB) , haven't tried HDMI.

The problem is with the LVDS, giving me displaced like pixels.Setting dual-link managed to get me correct resolution and display on LVDS but still displaced pixels like in the image below.I use shrike FB but and injected EDID that I got from windows but the issue persists.I think is something related to patching the connectors but I don't know how to do that.Can someone give me a detailed guide of how to do this.If yes whats the format of editing the config.plist in clover or org.chameleon.Boot.plist with the patched info.Here's the displaced pixels image I get on LVDS.My LVDS resolution is 1600x900.

smth is wrong with encoder, try to set encoder value in VGA or LVDS personality to 00

Will this work with the Mobility 7970M? I tried doing this before, but it would never load the GUI/get past verbose. ID natively exists in AMD7000controller (0x6800)

I have a Firepro M6100, which apparently is Saturn XT making it similar to the HD 8950M.

I've tried injecting all sorts of stuff, but I don't get working acceleration.  If I use a fake id of a card which is contained in the kexts, it just never loads a GUI on any monitor.

 

I have been trying mainly Pondweed for the fb name.  Any suggestion what I should try next?  I've basically done nothing but change around clover settings, but with no success.

 

I'm not even entirely convinced the kexts are loaded, as I see nothing ATI related in the verbose output.

 

Edit: Actually, I think they are loading, but I don't get past the verbose screen.  If I just put the ID in the kext and don't inject AMD, I get a kernel panic.

 

Edit: Problem solved.  The card isn't supported in Mavericks. Have to wait for Yosemite.

Hey,

If you said that you've tried all then what answer did you expect? Something else then all?

I think you should be more specific.

Hey,

If you said that you've tried all then what answer did you expect? Something else then all?

Ok.  I will be more specific.  Now, I have more details.

When trying to inject this card using Mavericks, it injects the value into AMD7000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX4000.kext.  When booting, regardless of framebuffer name choice, we get this output:

 

Couldn't alloc class "AMDBonaireGraphicsAccelerator"

 

I found someone with the Radeon 7790 had the same problem, and I found out that the new AMD kexts in 10.10 apparently supported the 7790 out of the box.  Well, I tried these kexts on 10.9 (I know there will not be working 3d) and I got a working desktop for a fraction of a second, then a black screen.  The external monitors also turn on, but with a black screen.  If I can get that far I'm sure I can make it work with 10.10 in the end. I think I need to use a different framebuffer or customize the framebuffer.  I tried only 'Baladi'.

 

 

Of course, my preference would be to have this work on 10.9 but I think it's not possible.  If you can think of a way to get it working on 10.9 without using kexts from 10.10, don't hesitate to let me know!

 

 

Edit: Using Baladi fb, I can get output from displayport, but nothing else.  So I think I'll need to patch this to make LVDS and HDMI work, as well as VGA.  I will try to learn more about doing this.

 

Edit: I have found a driver for newer AMD cards, maybe modified from 10.10 and backported, on another forum.  I will try this tonight and see if I can make it work.
