    VoodooHDA 2.9.0

    Thanks for the reply @mnfesq , but unfortunately there seems to be some anomaly. There is no audio via Speaker(Multi) & Speaker(Analog) [Woofer] works . I guess our audio system could be different,mine is HP DV6 6154TX . I was using your 2.8.8 patch in which you had just 2 nodes - 13,16 which resulted in two Speakers(Analog) . I used them together through MIDI setup. Can you help shed some light on that ? UPDATE I altered your patch with these & got Speaker (Analog) & Speaker (Multi) working . <dict> <key>Codec</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Config</key> <string>0x92170150</string> <key>Node</key> <integer>16</integer> </dict> <dict> <key>Codec</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Config</key> <string>0x92180540</string> <key>Node</key> <integer>13</integer> </dict> System Preferences Sound : Interestingly, VoodooHDA Settings shows another Speaker(Analog) ! Of course it doesn't work. Still confused about my audio setup

    VoodooHDA 2.9.0

    Hi @Slice, This is node patch used in 2.8.8 to make multiple speakers work in my system - IDT92HD81B1X5 , but not able to apply the same correctly to the 2.8.9 Info.plist . Can you help shed some light on it. <key>NodesToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Codec</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Config</key> <string>0x92170150</string> <key>Node</key> <integer>16</integer> <key>Node</key> <integer>13</integer> </dict> </array>

    @mnfesq , It would be great if you can you post your Info.plist for Beats. I'm using your 2.8.8 plist in which you had patched Node16 and Node13 get multiple speakers on my system.
  4. Hey guys, hope you are all doing good ! Great to see @fusion71au coming up with the guides for Sierra already I didn't turn up for El Captain as my GPU (8600m GT) on 1520 did it's thing 06/01/16 1:35:14.000 PM kernel[0]: NVDA,Display-B: Not usable I do still have a minor doubt on whether it was the display which gave up, but I don't have a spare display to check that. Perhaps on a later date. Anyways, as it seems my memron CPU wouldn't be compatible for Sierra I don't plan to spend money in fixing the laptop but I've run into some interesting anomaly. I removed the GPU, display and tried to use the laptop for some Android x86 research (interestingly our X3100 GPU has good success rates with Android ) but in vain as there's no signal from VGA when the display is unplugged from GPU. Then again, it defeats the purpose as I want the integrated GPU to work. Since, many here have got their GPU's replaced at some point can I get some info on whether anyone get their integrated GPU to output to VGA without the laptop display & NVIDIA GPU. Any pointers on this would be much appreciated.

    Intel PRO/100 VE NIC

    If it works now, it should work fine mate. I had some injection issues in DSDT and the kext was just fine.
  6. Thanks. In my case 10.10.2 updated just fine and graphics worked with vanilla AGPM, but 10.10.3 brought no desktop as many others over forums have complained ('black screen on 10.10.3') as well needing a patch to AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.
  7. AppleGraphicsPowerManagement 10.10.3 Greetings, friends. Looks like Apple has made many changes w.r.t Graphics power management from 10.10.3. 1. Default - kills graphics and renders the OS X un-bootable. 2. Patching APGM with device ID - kills graphics and renders the OS X un-bootable. 3. Patching the AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext inside AppleGraphicsControl.kext with , Model Number & String as no & Removing Unwanted sections such as GFX0,IGPU from AGPM lets me boot but AGPM doesn't load. States switch aggressively on battery (1-2), (1-2-3 ) on power and stays in 3. Interestingly performance seems to be improved than earlier version. Still, I would like to have the AGPM working as our cards's aren't heat friendly and it's summer It's advisable to install the 10.10.3 Supplementary update as well. These two kexts are loaded together (or) alternatively . I don't see any behavioural change though. com.apple.iokit.IOGraphicsFamily (2.4.1) <12 7 5 4 3 1> AppleGraphicsControl.kext Log prints, kernel[0]: IOGraphics flags 0x43 Hi @fusion71au , You didn't say about any APGM issues. Does it mean that you don't witness the above (or) AGPM works as it should in your setup ? Attachements : (If your graphics is working as it should, don't bother to download these). Patched AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy inside AppleGraphicsControl.kext (Substitute with your Model Number, i.e Mac-XXXX.. ) Patched AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext ( Don't add device id, remove unnecessary i.e GFX0, IGPU ). 10.10.3_AGPM_AGC_Indiandragon.zip
  8. Yes, Patched AppleHDA from snow leopard days are still useful.
  9. 10.10.1 AppleGraphicsPowerManagement Update . Added device id by replacing GFX0, removed IGPU section. Two states when on power, Three states when on battery as as experimented and concluded few posts above by me and immo. I'm using latest FakeSMC of Kozlek (HW Sensors) Branch. and latest Nvidia web driver - http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/80070/en-us Note two graphics control kexts loaded are : com.apple.driver.AGPM (100.14.37) <114 89 72 71 12 5 4 3> com.apple.AppleGraphicsDeviceControl (3.7.21) <7 6 5 4 3 1> Attached : AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext (V:100.14.37) AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext.zip Changing the device id to your GPU device id should be enough for most of you here. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Bought an intel 335 SSD 180 GB as it pretty much looks like the MBR is dead (or rather killed ) , especially since latest versions of Clover aren't behaving well with MBR (HFS+) partitions as slice removed HFS+ driver from the boot file. Of course speed boost is a gain and pretty much in acceptable limits with SATA 3.0 of our motherboard. TRIM can be enabled with Clover TRIM Patch. P.S I also have Samsung 840 Evo 120 GB SSD with my older desktop hackintosh with ICH7 with no AHCI and no TRIM, so I wouldn't recommend a SSD for any machine without AHCI or at least SATA 3.0.
  10. @immo , you are absolutely right. The state switching were weird due to my patch for limiting it to two states , which I did on purpose in Mavericks to throttle only at heavy load in order to prevent our card from killing itself. But seems the best option in Yosemite seems to to just add our device ID under MacBookPro 5,1 and let it do it’s job. The temperature is in fact better this way. So guys don’t use my earlier AppleGraphicsPowerManagement patching technique, stick with what @immo and @laostia suggested.
  11. Immo, added a 'question mark’ as it should have been . Btw,if in your case switching happening when on power too seems logical . But not allowing higher states on power is what makes me curious. My 15.6” is 1280x800 as well, but my GPU is 8600GTM . Please try with the lasted Nvidia web drivers and with my Patched AGPM attached few posts before.
  12. NVIDIA AGPM Switching states depends upon the power source - Battery/Power Adapter ? In short AGPM switching occurs only in Battery and not in Power Adapter GPU on Battery switches between 168,100 (Core/Memory) - 275,199 - 475,399 . Cinebench 11.5 reaches upto 9.06 FPS . GPU on Power Adapter stays constant at 275,199. Cinebench 11.5 reaches upto 4.74 FPS. AGPM switching to lower state on Battery makes sense, in fact the temperature are lower at lowest state using Nvidia Web Driver (343.01.01f03) , but not switching on Power Adapter is totally weird like is this the case with Actual Mac’s too ? In that case why wouldn’t some one use their GPU at maximum performance at full power ! Well if it only concerns our 8xxx M cards, it might be because apple mandatorily stopped our cards from using maximum power due to bad die bug ; yet again then why it switches in Battery Btw, latest Nvidia web drivers for Yosemite (343.01.01f03) are located here - http://us.download.nvidia.com/Mac/Quadro_Certified/343.01.01f03/WebDriver-343.01.01f03.pkg At the time of writing this version wasn’t listed on Nvidia’s site. I got through update notification dist.
  13. Immo, But not many including me have external monitor connected to our laptop and doesn’t have the clock frequency changes reflected (or not changing). So you think Nvidia Web driver makes the difference ? Update : Yes it does for performance but not for switching GPU states, what really matters is the Power. I’ll detail in the next post.
  14. laostia, I noticed the abnormal connections with little snitch the first time I booted. I just blocked the sh** out But as immo says, Apple promises to use it for improving search’s and associate with a random temporary id for 15 mins and then delete it. Anyways it’s good to be cautious though ! immo, the way I’ve patched - seem to get three states switching perfectly (though I’ve given only two states ). Can you try the same way ? Btw I don’t see the switching in the HW Sensor’s though, curious to see laostia’s got it working. Let us know when you’ve got it . My Console Output : AGPM-States.tiff Inference on Sleep : Though sleep is working as it should, I noticed few issues when waking up from sleep/hibernate after power drain (wasn’t able to boot up till I deleted the hibernate file manually). Since then I’ve set to hibernate mode to 0 to avoid saving to disk as the saved file is encrypted i.e Secure virtual memory. So, I feel whether disabling secure virtual memory will give a better sleep/hibernate ? Though I do not have any issues with sleep now, I’m cautious to put it that way as at low battery it could still hibernate and wouldn’t boot up. Unfortunately, neither this, $ sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.virtualMemory UseEncryptedSwap -boolean no nor this, $ sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.virtualMemory DisableEncryptedSwap -boolean yes disables secure virtual memory. Confirm it by, $ sysctl vm.swapusage vm.swapusage: total = 64.00M used = 0.00M free = 64.00M (encrypted) That (encrypted) shouldn’t be there. So can anyone suggest a better way to disable the secure virtual memory ? I think it might be solution for 'better sleep’ for all of us.

    [Guide] [Mavericks & Yosemite] AMD Radeon HD5450

    @polyzargone, So patching the required kexts with device ID looks the only solution to enable HD5450 with Clover. It works, but my display resolutions are wrong ? How did you get your display resolution right ?
