which kind of board-id are you using ?

Mac-F2238BAE which should match imac11,3  which is what I'm using for my SMBIOS config.


UPDATE:  So I just deleted a kext from /System/Library/Extensions then rebooted and I was back to getting the dreaded black screen.  I'm assuming the values entered in to fakesmc were never being used and I was in fact using an old kext cache with the modified AGDP.  I can't remember if I regenerated the kext cache after restoring the original AGPD.  I edited AGPD directly and now I'm back to functioning graphics.

If your motherboard support NVRAM.


Series 100 motherboards like mine do not support NVRAM. You need either to keep the boot argument, or have the EmuVariableUefi-64 driver in your Clover setup

I have just upgraded to Sierra and can confirm that it does not work anymore  :(


I still think this could be a part of a longer term solution.


I tried the fakesmc kext you posted earlier today and I added my my board-id to the info.plist and it's working on sierra. I use clover kext injection for fakesmc.

What about in Sierra?

Doesn't appear to work for me on sierra.  I have to manually edit the AGDP info.plist.

AGPDFix won't really help me.  It applies to imac 15, 17 and macpro6,1.  I did try to run it anyway and it told me SIP was enabled.  I then remembered I was only allowing unrestricted fs.  I then enabled allow unsigned kexts and now my graphics work (with my modified AGDP).


So, what I had to do to get os x sierra working on my system was:


1. Make sure to have NvidiaWeb set in the config.plist for clover

2. Use latest nvidia web drivers for os x sierra

3. Add my board ID Mac-F2238BAE to AGDP (I overwrote one of the other board-ids with my own).  Make sure the value is set to NONE

4. Make sure SIP is configured to allow unsigned kexts.

I'm currently using clover 3726 legacy boot on the system in my signature.  For over a year now I have been unable to use any recent boot file.  When I use one of the boot files from within the past year or so I see 'init L' on my screen and the computer reboots.


Today I saw something about a new feature called PBRsata.  I thought maybe this would allow me to use a newer boot file.  Same thing happens with it.


Any ideas on why I can't use a recent boot file?  I'm talking about the file named 'boot'.  It's probably not a big deal; I'm just more curious than anything.
