I think this time will finnaly come to everyone here at the community. I'm switching for MBP13 for 2013 (as I'm going to university). I'm going give this piece of hardware to my friend. So. I stop any development on this machine and putting Win8 on it. Hope that things I left here like UEFI will help you in future. It was a nice time with you guys. Thank you everyone!

No news for VESA. It seems that it is really not work with LVDS. I looked into my desktop NVIDIA vbios, and it works in squre small resolution even on HDMI before the system boots. The only thing that supports native resolution during pre-boot is UEFI.

I tried to patch vesa:
-with 0xCC0F-0xCC16 from linux + checksum fixed - no change
-with 0x0000-0xED51 from linux - notebook is bricked. I used recovery method

Please write about the recovery mode, I need it as I am about to patch bios.

Will do some research about VESA soon.

Now I got an old tip for those who don't know about it yet. I prefer not to patch AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext from update to update (and feel more vanilla!). You can boot simply native, adding a device-prop string to chameleon.boot.plist. I use it since Snow Leo. And there is my boot.plist if somebody interested.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>DSDT</key>
<string>hd(0,2)/Extra/DSDT.aml</string>
<key>Default Partition</key>
<string>hd(0,2)</string>
<key>DropSSDT</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1366x768x32</string>
<key>Quiet Boot</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>RestartFix</key>
<string>No</string>
<key>SystemType</key>
<string>2</string>
<key>UseKernelCache</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>device-properties</key>
<string>600000000100000001000000540000000100000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04001e0000004100410050004c002c006f0073002d0069006e0066006f0000001800000030490111111108000001f01f0100000010070000</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Simply copy this string to your plist and you're done. Now I got this kext in system:
  • FakeSMC
  • PS/2
  • AppleHDA and Battery
And I only have to patch last two after an update. And update itself is more safe!

hi Mohamed. What is that notebook-review bios mod is about?

Have you been able to mod the VESA mode?
