In Topic: display goes off when AppleIntelFramebufferCapri is loaded

24 August 2012 - 02:59 AM

I finally have QE\CI on my internal display! I'm using the MacBook Pro 9,1 SMBIOS, LegacyAGPM.kext, 1920x1080x64@85, and DSDT injection for 01660004. It should also be noted that I have removed AppleIntelSNBFramebuffer.kext as it is not needed with the Intel HD 4000 (probably could stop the kext from loading with DSDT later). Here's the DSDT patch for injecting the ig-platform-id:

into method label _DSM parent_adr 0x00020000 remove_entry;
into device name_adr 0x00020000 insert
	Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n
		Store (Package (0x02)\n
				"AAPL,ig-platform-id", \n
				Buffer (0x04) \n
				{ \n
				   0x04, 0x00, 0x66, 0x01 \n
				}, \n
			}, Local0)\n
		DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))\n
		Return (Local0)\n

Using DSDT Editor, you'll have to apply the above patch as well as the DTGP patch from the patches directory. Also, you should edit the 0x04 (not the Buffer) to match your ig-platform-id. I can bundle the patches in a zip file if anyone needs it.

I don't know if any of my external ports work for video, but I'm really happy that I finally have the internal display working with QE\CI. Thanks everyone for your help! I'll post back my findings on external displays over HDMI or VGA.

EDIT:It appears as though external screens over HDMI and VGA don't work with this ig-platform-id, but I'm not too worried about it currently. It would be great to have use of HDMI, but it's not a priority.

Nice to read that!
I'll be waiting for your update on external displays to know if it is worth making all that dsdt + kexts stuff you had to do.

capo_saric, do you have 64MB VRAM on your Intel HD 4000 or is it 32MB VRAM? I believe mine is 64MB and is unfortunately unchangeable.

Without any GPU recognized, "About This Mac" showed 64Mb Shared Memory, but none of the 64MB strings worked... It is also unchangeable

I've tried every single string with x32 and x64 graphics mode and that one is the only that has worked with my internal screen

Hi, guys...
I happen to have the same cpu as pcmantinker
I've made my internal display work with the EFI String for device 01660004, which indicates ig-platform-id: 01660004, Stolen RAM for FB: 32MB, Pipes: 3, Ports: 1, FBMem: 1
I also set the GraphicsMode to 1920x1080x64


Sadly, I haven't got any of my external ports to work. My laptop has HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort, and I really need to get any of them to work as soon as possible... I'll update any progress I have

got mine working with Lion too
Everything I've tested so far is working (I'm missing SD Reader, HDMI and FireWire)
I've only been able to boot with arch=i386 flag. I don't know why, but trying to boot on 64 bit mode the computer will just keep loading.
Sound output is working, but input is not.
Sleep works fine, but sound crackles after resume. I have found some fixes to this (reloading kext on wake up) but haven't tried them.
Can anybody share the sound kext you're using? I tried every version of VoodooHDA in ##### but each of them gave me Kernel Panic. I understand this kexts are working on 64bit mode, but as I said, I haven't been able to boot other than 32 bit. Any clue on this?

Other than this, it is a pretty stable install, I think even more stable than my last SnowLeopard install.

Also, since SnowLeopard I'm having this bug on VoodooPS2Controller where pressing CapsLock and some other key at the same time freezes the whole keyboard and trackpad. The only way to go through this is connecting a USB mouse and keyboard to save my work and reboot.
I've disabled CapsLock key to prevent this and forced myself to get used to write capital letters with shift, but it would be nice to have my CapsLock key back again.

if you have a 100% working install of Lion, could it be possible for you to make a backup of your kexts with OSX86 Tool and share it with the forum? please?
Since we all share specs and hardware, this could make it easier for others to install/reinstall Lion and have a less painful experience than what we've had. (I also lost my drive several times and tried for almost 2 weeks to get it working in a reliable way)
