Hi guys! I need your help cause I've tryed, I think, all that I can try and did not solve anything!
So: I have a hd7970m, I can boot to desktop only on my external HDMI monitor, I know this is common but cant solve by myself for 3days of googling and trying...
I will try to provide all info you need to point me on my errors!
Let's begin:
I've using this guide to create my Personality from scratch:
http://rampagedev.wo...er-personality/
till patching kext, I dont want to do this so I've used Clover method by this thread:
http://www.insanelym...y-using-clover/
Attached File  config.plist.zip   2.5KB   2 downloads
Please dont look at ATIConnectorsData and ATIConnectorsPatch entries, I was experimenting so they are not those I provided below.

My vbios I've extracted with atiflash from a bootable usb stick.

Output from radeon_bios_decode:

Output from redsock_bios_decoder:

So this is what I've got according to rampagedev guide:
Spoiler

Tryed this framebufer like this and discarding one of entries for LVDS and VGA, tryed various personalities, always have both black screen (internal and ext. HDMI), only with sleep trick can have ext. monitor working.
Have tryed even this guide of a chinese guy, but same black screen:

I'm quite shure I'm doing a banal error but dont know what error!
Please guys, point me on it!
Thanks a lot for your help!

Ok, I'm figured it out but now I have wired colors on my internal monitor like in this post:

Any idea?

Our dumps are exactly the same. What was the final connector patch that got your internal LCD working. I'm also confused, how are our dumps the same? You also have two HDMI ports, mini display port, VGA, and switchable graphics on LVDS?

Like I said before in my second post: on boot I have stranhe colors, I must do sleep/wake to have normal ones.

Our dumps are the same cause I'm think we are using same Dell card with same bios! :)

And in this bios I have:

2x unknown devices

1x DP port

2x HDMI ports

1x VGA port

 

In reality I have:

1x LVDS port (second unknown I think)

1x eDP port (first unknown I think)

1x DP

1x HDMI

I've used that combination before, reported in my thread: http://www.insanelym...achieving-qeci/

I was using this one before with no success:

02000000400000000901000010000005

 

It seems the only difference between your string and mine is

02000000400000000901010010000005

 

I will give this a try the next time i do hackintosh.

 

Please send me your clover config.plist so I can examine. I think for the color banding problem, another user on here with a 7650M reported that using different senseID fixed his problems with banding (look up user Trucker MK)

Yeh, I know he did, but 7650m is Turks 40nm chip, our is Pitcairn 28nm chip... :(

I found another two topiks where TruckerMK was active, about gradients....will report here about findings!

It might help to go on the netkas forums and ask about the color banding. Anyway, please upload the clover config.plist when you have time. I'd like to see if you have any patches or SMBIOS settings that could be giving you internel LCD

Please, leave your email! You can see in my sigh I use MacPro6.1 smbios because:
1. 7970m is the same chip as D300, a litle underclocked
2. I'm waiting a second card so apart CPU it will be MacPro6.1mini :)
 
P.S.: applehacker, dont waste your time on windows, install today Mavericks! :)

Is it too early for Yosemite, is it not? Support for serios apps?
I'm using a lot Premiere Pro for video editing and I have before some incompatibility issues with Mavericks...
So maybe I can wait...

I tried your patch, still getting blackscreen w/backlight. Very strange, even though we have exact same dumps......still not working.
