Great :).

 

FYI, the problem was in the IGPU injection. The fake device ID was missing (0x12, 0x04, 0x00, 0x00 to simulate a HD 4600 desktop ID instead of 0x16, 0x04, 0x00, 0x00 used by HD 4600 mobile).

 

So in the Device (IPGU), you should use this :

 

            Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)  // _DSM: Device-Specific Method
            {
                If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
                {
                    Return (Buffer (One)
                    {
                         0x03                                           
                    })
                }

                Return (Package (0x08)
                {
                    "device-id",
                    Buffer (0x04)
                    {
                         0x12, 0x04, 0x00, 0x00                         
                    },

                    "AAPL,ig-platform-id",
                    Buffer (0x04)
                    {
                         0x06, 0x00, 0x26, 0x0A                         
                    },

                    "model",
                    Buffer (0x0E)
                    {
                        "Intel HD 4600"
                    },

                    "hda-gfx",
                    Buffer (0x0A)
                    {
                        "onboard-1"
                    }

 

works like a charm, thank you :)


so when I want to have clover on my hdd rather than on the usb-stick, do I just install it, and copy over the modified files?

 

Correct :).

 

PS : If you need to re-install OS X, don't forget to disable the two SSDTs (not the DSDT) otherwise you'll have graphics issues ;).

There's one ultimate step I forgot to talk about to enable native Power Management : you'll have to use the ssdtPRGen.sh script available here : https://github.com/P...ha/ssdtPRGen.sh

ok, i used thee script and placed the ssdt, but my i ask what it is actually used for? I dont really see a change :P


And another thing: if I want to change the wifi card (bc it's not supported) do I need to rebuild all the dsdts and ssdts?

You won't notice any difference but this SSDT is needed for these kexts to load :

Without it, you won't have full native PM > x86Platformxxx not loaded :

And another thing: if I want to change the wifi card (bc it's not supported) do I need to rebuild all the dsdts and ssdts?


No as long as you change it for a model that works OOB.

If not, you'll find some patches for native WIFI support in the same RehabMan's repo. You may want to have a look at them. I use one for my Atheros AR9285 (no Bluethooth).

On the 772G, the device that handles WIFI is located at RP03 > PXSX so you'll need to adapt the patch.

 

Of course, this only works for supported Atheros chipset !

ok, so just FYI i encountered some problems with the trackpad when using it for a while. I swapped the provided ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext (which was a beta 4.7 i think) with the stable 4.6 version and now it runs smoothly :) links below: http://forum.osxlati...river-mac-os-x/

Fine. TBH, I barely use the trackpad so I didn't noticed that.
