[GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

1,869 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

GhostRaider have a few questions for you

 

1. What setup do you have intelHd only or some other card such as Nvidia or Ati

2. Going back i see you had some success with Snow Leopard and Qe/Ci again the answer to question one depends on this.

 

#Not really a question but have you though of trying out your snow setup with the resolution module. I beleive the more data we collect the more lickely we are to come up with a fix.

 

 

Something interesting would be if someone with a real mbp and intel hd, could delete their Ati or Nvidia kext living the intelhd and observe the result.This would allow us to know if intelhd is complete on its own or not,and also if it displays desktop, fuzzy screen or black screen.

I have same effect without AAPL,os

If I add IntelHDGraphicsFB kext and IntelHDGraphics kext into Extensions folder I have full resolution an QE enable in VNC. I rename my video in dsdt to IGPU My results is here https://www.dropbox....y1/XLjcYZ4Xxt?m

 

Any ideas?

 

Hmm.. i saw your image and these are my conclusions:

Have you ever seen this topic about QE/CI? The Lenovo X201 has a resolution of 1280x800.

I also found some infos from macbooks which have an intel hd graphics. The resolutions are:

1440x900

1920x1200

 

and let's add the resolution of the Lenovo: 1280x800

 

All these resolutions are 16:10, while our is 16:9.

 

Coincidences?

@Giofrida:

 

I have a DELL Latitude E5410 (8086 0046 revision 2), native resolution 1280 x 800. Following this thread I got:

- proper resolution

- Core image

 

no QE though...

Try to install the original kexts and boot, if you see artifacts and distortion lines on your screen, my conclusions are totally wrong.

I've tried with the original kexts (10.8.2) and:

- with framebuffer kext I get the usual black screen. Laptop is accesible thorugh treamviewer/VNC

- without frame buffer kext I get a heavily distorted (unusable) screen. Laptop accessible through team viewer/VNC.

- Removing all IntelHD kexts I get proper resolution but no QE/CI (card is recognized as standard VGA, no DVD player, no flash videos...)

 

- including the kexts within this thread I get proper resolution and CI (as per first posting within this thread)

Hi everybody. I have follow this guide and it worked!! I'm on Packard Bell TK85 380SP.

 

Only one thing, the vga connector. If I plug in with the laptop off and boot it after, the image shows on external screen but not on the internal display. If I plugin the VGA after ML boots up, the external display isn't recognized. Can I enable mirroring using the VGA???

 

Thanks!!!

You have to choose between part 2 or 3. If want to try and get QE/CI skip to part 3 and follow the instructions.

 

In all the guides, the graphics enabler string isn't needed.

 

The problem is the variety of hardware. Adding it won't do any harm and it may cause problems for other computers if its not added.

I upgrade to 10.8.3 CI not work, intelhd kext loaded but openGL view only software renderer.

 

I hope Apple did not make huge changes in the way 10.8.3 handles Intel HD Graphics. I doubt they discovered this and changed it at the last minute.

10.8.3 is working ok, have intel "ga" as well don't know if that makes a difference

 

Your running the native Intel HD kexts from 10.8.3 right with AppleIntelHDGraphics, AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver, AppleIntelHDGraphicsVA and AppleIntelHDGraphicsGA? and then you just patched the framebuffer with the singlelink patch?

 

People are saying it doesn't work, I'm not sure who's right... a screenshot from 10.8.3 would help to confirm.

Yup and now with a patched 10.8.3 framebuffer i just made Proof in screechshot attached

 

Set up is No DSDT

 

Clover latest boot loader "Clover_v2_r1174"

 

Fakesmc latest 5.1.41

 

Macbook pro 6,2 15" mid 2010

 

patched applecpuintelpower

 

you get the idea.

 

i tried to stay away from dsdt as i'm not in the mood of late to tinker with it and , with "plnf device" with frambuffer kext = instant reboots.

 

 

I removed all entries from natit only left os-info

 

I dont use any resolutions hacks either...everything graphics related left vanilla of-course with exception of intelFB

Thank you very much GhostRaider. I used your AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext (alternate one) with other kexts from manor and now I got full QE/CI working in my Dell Inspiron 1464 now. :D

Thank you for clarifying things 2bad0. B) I successfully upgraded to Mountain Lion 10.8.3 with full QE/CI support.

Glad that this guide has helped you out and others as well. :)

 

Alright friends, I have updated the guide to support 10.8.3. For some reason the Intel HD Graphics IGPU seems to run a bit more smoother now. Thank you for your continued support Apple! :smoke:

 

I just want to clarify something that my guide does not show. I did mention about Natit, and I'm sorry that I haven't talked about it. The Natit kext is not included in none of my downloads because I completely forgot about it.

 

The thing is, I don't use Natit because I added a DSM method under GFX0 in my DSDT. In there, I have added the os-info that the framebuffer produces.

 

I'm not sure if that is why some people say that QE/CI is broken on 10.8.3. But just to confirm all is good on 10.8.3, see screenshots:

You could include my patcher later in your topic (never mind, see this), the brightness guide from mnorthern and his next work: backlight on wake up.

 

However i think Natit is not needed because for example i use no DSM method in GFX0 or IGPU on my DSDT and QE/CI works the same (maybe is better remove it because it changed the name of my discrete card with 'Intel HD Graphics').
