I've gotten most of the hardware for my Dell XPS 13 (L322X) working, but HD4000 graphics just won't work. I can turn on GraphicsEnabler and set my resolution to 1080p in Chameleon, and it will boot in 1080p, but Graphics Acceleration doesn't work (non-translucent menu bar).

 

I have an i7-3537u. I've tried multiple SMBios presets, but at this point I'm lost. I have to boot with -f, or else it won't boot, so would that be a problem?

If Chameleon is unable to detect the correct PCIRoot, GraphicsEnabler (as well as EthernetBuiltIn) will not work.

 

PCIRoot can be either 0 or 1. Chameleon defaults to 0 when it is unable to read the correct value.

If 0 happens to be wrong, it's necessary to manually set PciRoot=1 in /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist.

 

See the pinned topic titled "Tequila Fix" in one of the DSDT sub forums for more information about this.

Sorry, I'm not exactly an expert on this stuff. I have no idea how to use the information in this link...

http://www.insanelym...g-platfor-r1005

What is the Chameleon_2260_GMA.zip file for? Do I use both IntelCapriFB and InjectIntel-ig? What values should I use for the former? How do I find my ig-platform-id for the latter?

 

I fixed the need to use -f to boot by installing the latest FakeSMC, but graphics are still driving me insane!

 

I need some steps to try, a starting point to troubleshoot this issue. I've tried PCIRootUID = 0 and 1. I have SMBios set to MacBookAir5,2, but I don't know if that is correct or not tbh

Ok, for some reason I don't have a appleintelhd4000graphics.kext in S/L/E, could someone upload theirs for 10.9.2?
