  1. very easy in info.plist: search and do below in 8,1, 8,2, 8,3 sectoins: <key>IGPU OR GFX0</key> replace it with <key>Vendor8086Device0116</key> then replace the file in s/l/e/ run these as well after that: sudo rm -R /System/Library/Caches/ sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions dont fix disk permissoins right away just use for few hours and reply..
  2. @DoiX I am using your DSDT from 1.4, just changed my System IDS so it can boot and also _ON.. _PS.. I did tried smbios but didn't work for me but i am happy and realizing there are zero graphics glitch since i added my both card ids in AGPM and did see the image improvements and fast loading etc.
  3. @DoiX It only shows when we provide PciRoot 1 or 2 via boot.plist otherwise it wont show! <key>PciRoot</key> <string>1 or 2</string> When i provide PciRoot=1 [AGPM Controller] Build GPUDict by Vendor8086Device0116 [AGPM Controller] Build GPUDict by Vendor10deDevice0df4 When i use PciRoot=2 (with re-install nvidia kext) [AGPM Controller] Build GPUDict by Vendor10deDevice0df4 [AGPM Controller] Build GPUDict by Vendor8086Device0116 But then it lower the brightness and hang.. Also now i am using A06_V3 today i got also vga is always set to PEG whatever PciRoot i chose later..
  4. Not anymore how i do it, i replace 8,2 section in AGPM.kext with <key>MacBookPro8,2</key> <dict> <key>Vendor8086Device0116</key> <dict> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>BusyDownThresholdPercent</key> <integer>70</integer> <key>BusyUpThresholdPercent</key> <integer>90</integer> <key>DiagnosticModeDefault</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>EvaluateDownInterval</key> <integer>350000</integer> <key>EvaluateUpInterval</key> <integer>66000</integer> <key>ID</key> <integer>2</integer> <key>SensorOption</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> <key>control-id</key> <integer>16</integer> <key>max-power-state</key> <integer>15</integer> <key>min-power-state</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> <key>Vendor10deDevice0df4</key> <dict> <key>BoostPState</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> <integer>3</integer> </array> <key>BoostTime</key> <array> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> </array> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>ID</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IdleInterval</key> <integer>100</integer> <key>TargetCount</key> <integer>5</integer> <key>Threshold_High</key> <array> <integer>80</integer> <integer>80</integer> <integer>80</integer> <integer>100</integer> </array> <key>Threshold_Low</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>90</integer> <integer>90</integer> <integer>90</integer> </array> </dict> <key>control-id</key> <integer>17</integer> <key>LogControl</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> </dict> Now it shows both card names correctly and with PciRoot=2 it always selecting Nvidia but wont go to desktop..
  5. @DoiX I updated bios to A09_V3 (A06 wont work for me at least) and but A09 dose the trick for PEG option, also set the _PS0 then _ON _PS0 even in PINI also added both card ids in AGPM so i can identify shows correctly while booting and whenever i use PciRoot=2 it always select nvidia 10de first and put intel on second but it wont go to desktop and hang right after AGPM Controller and in -v mode dose lower the screen resolution before hanging.. Just want to add my inputs from my testing..

    how to get your your device idproduct & idvender ? first go to system profiler --> USB --> go to usb device that you want to customize it --> you will find vender id and product id -- > take them one by one to caclculator --> on calculator use programmer mode --> then paste numder of id on (16) mode then convert it to (10) mode you will get new number that we need on kexts and do other ids like this
  7. Sorry no hard feelings, but I tried every method on this forum but the truth is every day mac become more and more unstable and after three days become useless so what I find two weeks ago that by removing SSDT.aml and don't doing repair permissions and rebuilding kextcache etc. fixes everything. Also forget to mention to use USB 3.0 Ports try USB 1.1 very old Hub and you will see working. Thank you all for every effort.
  8. I am confirming this after Two Weeks of different tests which involved video games COD for 8 Hours continuously and UT2004 for 4 Hours almost every day and tested heating by running the laptop for two days continuously with Virtual Box etc. 100% Freeze Free 100% Free of Graphics Artifacts How I fixed random freezes: 1) Remove SSD from your all root even from Extra folder 2) Use these commands to set permissions to Kext folder and Do not use any other Utility or Commands after these to build cache etc. sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions sudo rm -R /System/Library/Caches/ sudo kextcache -update-volume / -f 3) Do not use disk permissions from Disk Utility otherwise you will have all the problems back again, not sure how to fix this issue maybe its from the boot loader, I am using 1.9.2 How I fixed Graphics issues: I am not using DSDT from DoiX to disable Nvidia still using wen-dsdt you can get from the first page and: UseKernelCache=Yes GraphicsEnabler=Yes UseNvidiaROM=Yes VBIOS=Yes also injecting bios 10de_0df4.rom If you have i3 Processor must use: 8,1 smbios.plist If you have i5 Processor must use: 8,2 smbios.plist If you have i7 Processor must use: 8,3 smbios.plist (I have i7 so using this) That's It!!! I finally moved to this laptop and enjoying from last 14 days and its much much faster then mac mini and I can play Games from Steam so i am very very happy and fully satisfied..
  9. Hello, I just created the account so i can share my knownlge etc. First this is how I fix time for windows create text file fixtime.txt then add these lines: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation] "RealTimeIsUniversal"=dword:00000001 save and close now rename to fixtime.reg and run as admin.. I have more to share after updating the bios I lose SMBus but I found the way to change IDs in DSDT which loads them correctly I will share soon when I will be on my Laptop.. I do have mac mini my self so I also found a workaroud for Intel 3000HD VGA Screen black lines problem.. They are happing because IODisplayConnectFlags always stays with <00 00 00 00> but I have this right from when I plugin into mac mini so I will past here when we use mini-display as VGA or DVI soon.. Thanks DoiX for all your help etc.
