    New MacBook = Yoga 3 pro Hackintosh

    Hey guys sorry I've been out for sometime now.. The thing is, I've sold my yoga 3 pro after failing to get the graphics working. I wish you all the best at attempting.. But my final conclusion was that Bios is locked, that means it cannot be edited via efi shell! Bios needs to be edited and then installed.

    i just extracted the bios using phoenix bios utility.. and then under SetupUtility structure found the PE32+ image section.. extracted it, after that used the IFR Extractor. and finally located the DVMT Pre-Allocated Variable set on this machine its 0x18C and to change it to 96MB will need to change it to 0x3. Will try to with UEFI shell and confirm and see if it works. Edit 1: Somethings wrong and I am *not* able to access uefi shell on the lenovo.. I am pretty sure I am doing something wrong. a few attempts of fail. Will write back later as soon as I get it right.. Edit 2: Apparently my first usb was faulty or something. So I tried changing the value using:" setup_var 0x18c 0x3 " it says something like Variable found, and that 0x18c is 0x01 and then gives me an error saying cannot set value using efi (error: 0x0000000000001a) seems like I might have to make a bios patch, something I am not familiar with.

    New MacBook = Yoga 3 pro Hackintosh

    Hey guys, Sorry I've been a little inactive with my progress lately. But I am aware of people who have had success with HD 5500, and our problem seems to be similar, although our bios edit process maybe different. But I plan on getting back to it. Meanwhile, I've made a few attempts to get the graphics working but no luck. Seems like we may need a bios edit and change the DVMT alloc to 96MB to stop getting kernel panics and get the drivers working. And by default its at 0, which means its at 32MB. Now time to figure out how this can be done. feel free to contribute any relative information.

    10.10.3 final is out time to tinker around. will update as soon as I can.
  5. I think besides touchpad, touchscreen would be a game changer.. would give you the satisfaction of carrying a OSX Tablet, you know.. not many out there.

    if you go to this page https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-fake-pci-id/downloads download the latest folder from Rehabman, put the fakepciid and the broadcom kext in your clover/kexts/10.10 folder it will boot up as Airport card. That gets appstore working OOTB

    Broadwell graphics, has anyone got it working?

    Thanks for the input, but my question was directed towards a hackintosh broadwell, and as far as I know there is no broadwell kernel or graphics support in APPSTORE 10.10.2
  8. Hello people, Now that we have plenty of betas for 10.10.3 out there with broadwell kernel and graphics support / drivers. Question is: Has anyone got broadwell igpu working yet? 10.10.3 is supposed to be out first week of April most-likely along with the sales of new Macbooks and so on, until then the betas out there give you the drivers you need for next gen intel CPU /GPU Any related attempts on broadwell chips and graphics, please feel free to discuss it here. And if you have had success with graphics working please share it with us. Thank you!
  9. Well thanks for the help.. after a little challenge trying to pry up the metal.. ( it required minor bending -- But it bend back just fine without any marks) replaced the stock thermal paste.. I don't know how much was the effort worth but ill find out soon once I jack up the temps in game.. the most it went was 75 - 76 %.. On the plus side nothing was glued in tab like how it is in the macbooks air and so on.. although I don't like that fact the that its covered in a metal box frame.. I think it allows more heat to accumulate in.. I wonder if temps get better with leaving the metal out of the tablet..
  10. Oh thanks for the info.. Ill get on with applying thermal paste now I am not sure about the WWAN card.. Because I barely use 3G/ 4G connectivity. for me this tablet is mostly a lab rat to do all my dirty testing on that sounds so evil. although I treat it with care. Edit: nope.. No luck with snapping the metal plate off. kinda scary rather.. it seems to be pulling the motherboard along with it.
  11. Its fine.. Its just unbelievable that they made it a pain in the ass to deal with I wanted to look in to the cooling and see if I can apply the thermal paste. Thanks anyways for confirming.. So I don't feel like I am tripping or missing out something here. Btw congrats on getting the system running finally.. Ive been busy with 2 other hackintoshes lately ( Clevo P170EM and Yoga 3 pro) . So I couldnt spare much time dealing with dells dsdt.. Although I am following your findings and progress. Ill continue back once I find some time. P.S. I do have a broadcom NGFF card but its in my yoga 3 pro works great on hackintosh.. and on the dell I am using a 3$ USB Wifi N adapter seems to work great with the drivers i provided in my guide EDIT: I am finally in everything so tiny.. anyways seems like cpu isnt accessible.. its under that metal thing next to the fan as far as I know.. but not sure how that comes off. Also there is no WWAN card installled on the 3rd m.2 slot Just wondering.. which wwan card did you install?
  12. Blank, a quick question.. how the hell did you upgrade the ssd on your tablet... can you please send me a photo of back of your tablet without the cover? I wanna see if it's the same. P.S. Mines completely covered in plastic with no access to wifi card or the ssd.. I'll have to dissemble the whole thing I think =/
