    AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    Hello, This is going to be a support/discussion topic of AppleALC on InsanelyMac. AppleALC is a kernel extension allowing you to enable native apple HD audio without any filesystem modifications. It dynamically injects the necessary modifications to AppleHDA (and other kexts) including the layouts, and makes your audio work starting from the OS installation. It should be noted that AppleALC starting with version 1.1.0 requires Lilu.kext to be put in the same folder as AppleALC.kext. See this topic for more details. For quite some time we are trying to obtain the necessary information about AppleALC codec compatibility. If you use something, please, consider checking the compatibility table (do not worry, it is in English), and report (here) on your codec. We are also looking for all the possible revisions of the codec, if we do not have the revisions listed for your codec please report as well. Thanks for understanding. The report is meant to contain: 1. Laptop model/Motherboard model 2. Codec name 3. Layout used with the info what works for you (ideally if you try them all) 4. OS X versions you tried 5. Autogenerated Info.plist made with the help of this utility. All the details including the source code are available on github: https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC Some short wiki articles explaining the usage are included. As for now the project is relatively immature without practically any codec support. But it should be pretty easy to add more of them, I am hoping for the support of the "community" If you have any issues, better report them on github for structural reasons.

    I’ve already given up on Netflix and I don’t even use Safari so not sure why I invested so much time in getting it working lol. I actually updated airportfixups kext today to the latest version so all is good there.

    Listen, I have seen your screenshot and I honestly have no clue why your HEVC acceleration is working without the ACPI / IOReg rename. Anyhow, I am not a noob and in fact do know a thing or two about hackintoshing. In fact, I already contributed quite a lot to the community and have built and set-up more than enough machines to know what is necessary and what isn't. And I personally haven't seen any green light on HEVC in VideoProc yet without the GFX0 or GFXA - and I also provided a proof for it. And as a matter of fact, if you do some research, you will find a lot of people who had the issue of no HEVC acceleration and it was fixed by using WEG (which adds the rename) or manually renaming using hotpatching or SSDTs. And of course you are right about the SMBIOS which is another piece of the puzzle. It needs to have the ForceOnlineRenderer flag in the AppleGVA framework, otherwise macOS expects a connectorless renderer (IGPU). Just out of curiosity: What version of VideoProc are you running on? @mnfesq posted an interesting message above. @DSM2 might also have to say something regarding the matter. Edit: Another fact for you. Over at Macrumors Mac Pro users tried for ages to get HEVC acceleration up and running on their cMPs. It wasn't possible. All they could get was H.264. I recently pushed them into the right direction and in fact renaming the PCI slot to GFX0 enabled HEVC for them. Go figure. They need to additionally spoof iMacPro1,1 or MacPro7,1 tho since Apple apparently actively blocks HEVC acceleration on the old Cheesegraters.
