#2233768 Help with Elitebook 8570w

Posted by RehabMan on 21 April 2016 - 01:43 PM

Backlight brightness control, solved it?Not really solved... Brightness Slider does not adjust the backlight. It only adjusts the luminosity of the colors via alpha blending (it uses a partially transparent window over the entire screen). It will not help with battery use due to the backlight having full power.

Why Fakesmc.kext don't need to install the system volume? AppleHDA is a complex kext. It loads various configuration files dynamically from Contents/Resources via OSKextRequestResource. OSKextRequestResource does not work when the kext bundle is injected by Clover. It is for the same reason that BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext does not work from CLOVER/kexts. There are other kexts that don't work with injection. For example, any kext that can be unloaded by the system will not be able to reload (the system has the IOKitPersonality in the IOCatalog, but it can't find the kext to load it). The way the original BrcmPatchRAM2.kext was written it would load, do its thing (push firmware), then unload. It worked on fresh boot and it even worked after sleep if sleep was initiated "soon enough" after fresh boot. But it didn't work if enough time passed to allow the kernel to unload the kext (the kernel employs "lazy unloading"). It is for this reason, that I added some code to BrcmPatchRAM2 to keep i...

another question please. So I got my setup working. I have a patched AppleHDA.kext (actual filename) which works fine if I placed it in SLE. But it wouldn't work if I placed it in kext/10.11.   Thanks again Patched AppleHDA.kext and "dummyHDA" kexts must be installed to the system volume.

BootCamp is a great solution for dual-boot between OSX and Windows that hackintosh only had one hard-disk without thinking how to partition it. And there have some virtual-PC applications support it.   I think it worth to use. Your PC does not need BootCamp. It can run Windows natively. Clover can boot both OS X and Windows in UEFI mode.

I think the issue might be right inside Boot Camp... Why are you using BootCamp on your PC? BootCamp is for Macs.

i have tried all those variants. none worked. and with the final 0006 doesnt recognizes the internal lcd, only hdmi. in order to have lcd, it needs to be 0000, in case 16260000. anyway, i have tried all variants with intel backlight instead of acpibacklight. If you want to provide files with the suggested configuration, please do. here is what i test as soon as i read your post:   dsdt> brightnessfix+intelbacklight+16260006 and 16260000(ssdt with no pnfl patch as it hangs if both have.) ssdt>brightnessfix+intelbacklight+16260006 and 16260000(dsdt with no pnfl patch as it hangs if both have.)   it gave me the very same results as before. You can have only one PNLF object. It does not matter where you put it. You will need to provide files that show what you're doing and clarify what you mean by "same results".

DataHubDxe is obiligatory module for UEFI boot. Interesting. I don't use it on any of my systems, all booting UEFI.

ioreg, kextst and efi/clover...   thanks a lot! Need APCI/origin. Press F4 in Clover to collect. Note: The ioreg shows using ACPIBacklight.kext, not IntelBacklight.kext. Your DSDT is not patched with "Brightness Fix". Preferred combo: "Brightness Fix" + IntelBacklight.kext. Might be better with ig-platform-id 0x16260006 (you're using 0x16160000).

will try, but its broadwell. Also works on Broadwell. ps. no results. same thing. fades out, there is slider but no effect. only shadows. No idea what you mean. no results at all. idk what can it be. this is my first broadwell lappy. others guides didnt help either. it works but fades to shadows and i cant use slider to increase. You will need to provide more details... ioreg.. EFI/Clover, kextcache output, etc.

<key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <dict> <key>Intel</key> <true/> </dict> <key>ig-platform-id</key> <string>0x10000300</string> </dict>I found a bug. When I put the snb-platform-id. I have only the "ig-platform-id" but the sandy bridge HD3000 needs the snb not the ig. I had to delete the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext to boot the Hackintosh. Otherwise it would not have been able to generate the darwin dumper.   DarwinDumper_2.9.9.2_AMI_X64_3389_Mav_macuser.zip The ig-platform-id setting is only for AAPL,ig-platform-id. It cannot be used for AAPL,snb-platform-id. You need to use /Devices/Arbitrary, /Devices/AddProperties, or ACPI/_DSM injection. In other words... not so much a bug. More like a feature not implemented.

having me read through an entire guide of things that don't pertain to my issue is easier than you helping me with this exact problem? You should not be lazy. The guide has very specific text related to updates to the github repo.

#2225600 OS X El Capitan 10.11.4: Skylake Intel HD Graphics General Discussion

Posted by RehabMan on 22 March 2016 - 12:28 AM

I choose to use the ja opcode since the direct jmp is a big instruction, and I am afraid of messing up the kernel panic part. :) There are two kinds of unconditional jmp instructions (long ones and short ones). 'eb' is jmps (jump short). It is the same length as the conditional jump that is being replaced.

Posted by RehabMan on 22 March 2016 - 12:00 AM

Should you have kernel panic like minStolenSize <= fStolenMemorySize, you could apply this patch to avoid this assertion: Name: AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer Find 4139C476 Replace 4139C477, or you could modify the DVMT pre-allocated memory in your BIOS settings to 64MB or 96MB. I would suggest using an unconditional 'jmps' (jump short) instruction instead of reversing the logic of the assertion (jbe->ja reverses the logic, such that panic results when DVMT-prealloc is large enough). Find: 4139c4762a Replace: 4139c4eb2a That way, if DVMT-prealloc is set as required, the patch does not *cause* a panic. Note: The above find/replace also includes the opcodes for the full two instructions involved here (cmpl+jbe).
