Hey Bertolin, thanks for joining the discussion. I'm willing to try but will not buy it right away. I am a bit scared because last time I bought the Cintiq Companion 2 with the Broadwell and I never could make it work under OS X. Well I resold it quickly because of it.
You have a lot of experience with this, can you tell me what would be the necessary steps to check this ? What modification you think needs to be done compared to the Cintiq Companion 2 install steps ?
What do you think will work out of the box and what may need custom work ?
Regarding the MobileStudio 16" I must say that I'm really excited by the larger screen size. Too bad they did not went for 4:3 or at least 16:10 aspect ratio. Love the aspect ratio on my iPad Pro too bad the pencil is not has good as a wacom one in term of sensitivity. Wacom has indeed gone stingy on the accessories even for the new Cintiq Pro won't come with the ExpressKey (which sells for an additional $100) !
Still hesitating on the Cintiq Pro 16" vs the MobileStudio Pro 16 but if the MobileStudio Pro 16" runs OS X it's a no brainer. Thanks for your help.
Hi, alexway! Glad to be part of this, mate
If you check my last post in mactabletman guide, you will see schwarzgrau was able to install El Capitan in a i7-5557U/Iris 6100 Companion 2 with almost everything working. We just need to change a couples of thing in my injector to make all usb ports works exactly as they did in Yosemite (but for now they are all working). He achieved CPU power management and found a proper ig-platform-id to inject so he has most important things working well.
Thanks for trusting my skills, mate, but I don't have a lot of experience LOL. I just tested and read a lot of stuff and now I'm starting to understand how and why I did that or what. So when I realized some improvements to mactabletman guide could be done, I wrote mine to install macOS Sierra in order to give back to the community, help others, etc. I hope some of you will find it useful
MobileStudio comes with Skylake CPUs, and Skylake is early supported so it needs some search, but I think it could be supported in Pike's script. For what I know Skylake Intel Graphics 550 is supported only if config.plist/Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX=0x19268086 (and FakePCIID.kext + FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext) (credits: RehabMan). So it seems it could be a good hack. It probably needs similar things to be done/patched/replaced than Companion 2.
If the device has both an integrated and discrete graphics card (Intel and an nVidia), it is unlikely you will get the nVidia card running (except in special cases where the Intel one can be switched off). Also keep in mind that if the touchscreen is USB then the only multitouch drivers out there (provided Wacom don't make their own) are proprietary and pretty costly (touchbase). If the touchscreen is I2C then its unlikely you'd get multitouch for the time being.
Glad to hear from you too, alex.dadoud! You're a coder so you surely know better what's possible than me, mate!
Touchscreen in Companion 2 was never a problem. In Yosemite is natively supported as a one click mouse even in the installer (no multitouch support). In El Capitan/Sierra it isn't (I guess because how OSX USB management has changed). But in any case, once you install Wacom drivers, you have full touch and pen support.
If I'm right you are developing an I2C driver, right? I read some thread here in tablet forum and you get some touch screen working, congrats, sir! I also read your driver may help to add support for rotation sensor, am I right? I can be a guinea pig for this if you want with my Haswell Companion 2
