    [HOW TO] Modification of AMD FB + Clover injection

    Running Mavericks 10.9.5 (13F34). Trying to boot with Caicos AMD HD6450, ports: VGA, HDMI, DVI-D. (a) When I open [/S/L/E/AMD6000Controller.kext/Contents/Info.plist] with TextEdit I see only three framebuffers mentioned: Gibba (5 ports), Lotus (3 ports) and Muskgrass (4 ports). Does this mean then when system boots it only checks for those three framebuffers / port combinations? (b) Does the script [ATI_FrameBuffers_10.10_to_10.11.php] report the framebuffers in the Mavericks AMD6000Controller.kext correctly, or do I need an older version of the script, suitable for 10.9.5? (c) If I choose to patch a framebuffer not mentioned in the Info.plist file, e.g. Ipomoea (because its ports configuration is a closer match to the graphics card I have), will it be considered at system startup or must I choose one of the three framebuffers mentioned in the Info.plist file to patch, most likely Lotus?
  2. dvmt is set to 128MB, anything smaller and it doesn't even boot. HS works fine with the iGPU but Mojave has a lot of jitter, can't really "work" at all, so I thought using your method here might cure it. I was obviously wrong, that's fine.
  3. that is definitely NOT what I've done. thank you for your help. perhaps the jitter problem will be solved in an upcoming 'release' version?
  4. using the latest ones. whatever debug version so -igfxdump boot flag produces the appropirate file. patching because of crazy jitter. if left alone without patching jitter is the same, no change. other options?
  5. whatevergreen complains about unknown format during boot. patcher tool shows 515 mobile when it's 530 GT2 desktop. got a very long patch, inserted into config.plist but the jitter remains. ideas?
  6. My H170 10.13.4 system has the exact same problem, goes to sleep just fine but when I press a key it reboots. Should I start a different topic as this is a different architecture?

    [HOW TO] Modification of AMD FB + Clover injection

    Could you please explain the meaning of the following, in Clover 4411 (Options->GraphicsInjector): DeInit, FakeID, Ports, Connectors, RefCLK I cannot yet boot into Mavericks so I cannot use Clover Configurator, so, after I'm done editing FB's, I need to know what goes where and in what format. Must "DeInit" be ticked in order for all of its "sub-fields", (i.e. FakeID, FBConfig, Ports, Connectors, RefCLK) to be activated?

    I might be making some slight progress in figuring out some of those Clover Graphics options. Could you please tell me what "Connectors" and "RefCLK" mean?
  9. well it did get updated to 13F1911 and, in my case, this Marvell driver just had to be reinstalled. At least that was easy.

    There appear to be so many permutations! Which port should I connect a monitor to? Dvi, hdmi or vga? Personally I'd rather use vga. I get this message when it hangs: "still waiting for root device" and a "stop" sign in the middle. My Boot Args: -v dart=0 npci=0x3000 And then the Options->GraphicsInjector options, as shown: Inject EDID (Fake Vendor, Fake Product, Backlight:0xFFF, Intel Max Backlight:0000) Card Device ID=6779 Model: AMD Radeon HD 6450/7450/8450/R5 Inject ATI (select or not) DualLink:1 DeInit: (select or not) Fake ID:0x00000000 FBConfig:Pithecia Ports:06 Connectors:00000004 RefCLK:000000 Load Video Bios (select or not)

    I will try that and report back. Meanwhile, what other Clover options should I try to set/unset so I stand a better chance at reaching the Finder?

    Yes I am familiar with Clover Configurator but how can I use it when the machine doesn't even go into graphics? All I get is the (-v Verbose) messages, white letters on black background and then, a black screen.

    Framebuffer: When Clover starts and I choose Options->GraphicsInjector, I see this line: "FBConfig:Bulrushes_" but I don't know if that is applied or just a suggestion. PCI ID's of card: From within windows 7 I can obtain this information: Vendor 1002, Device 6779, Subsys E164, Supplier 174B, Revision 00 but I am not sure if this is the information you requested. Thank you for being willing to help.
  14. Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga). Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?
  15. Could you please help me enable the VGA port on the GT710 in 10.9.5 13F34 ? It is currently booting fine through its HDMI port, web driver 334.0103f01 and config.plist arguments checked: Verbose (-v), npci=0x2000, dart=0, nvda_drv=1 The nvidia GT710 works fine through its VGA port and web drivers on a friend's Mac Pro 3,1 I must soon return this borrowed HDMI monitor, mine only has a VGA port so I'd appreciate your input.
