Im on 10.8.5

 

Using Ubuntu i found out my display is "enabled"
 
I installed the text files from the guide and modified my frame buffer using Giofrida's Intel HD Graphics Patcher
 
When I booted it was stuck on the apple logo
 
I deleted the kexts to get the system to boot, installed the kexts again but this time installed Natit aswell
 
When the system boots I now get this display

Friend, your not suppose to patch the framebuffer kexts files in my QE/CI packages because they are already patched for you. Second, you need to determine whether your laptop uses DualLink. If your native resolution is higher than 1366x768 then you have to pick a DualLink framebuffer. If your native resolution is 1366x768 or lower use a SingleLink framebuffer. Then you have to pick which Link Width to use. If LW1 doesn't work use LW2, LW3, etc.

 

In some cases if the apple boot screen freezes then you may have to pick an alternative framebuffer. These have the plist files slightly modified. As I said to many people, its a trial and error situation.

Thanks for the reply

 

My native resolution is 1366 x 768 so I'll try the single link frame buffer now

SingleLink - LW1 worked!

 

THANKS!!

Do you absolutely need natit. Some users don't need it double check to see, because natit does some tricks of its own.

Also try editing natit's plist and disable dual link and such,also be aware of what extra video options your boot-loader adds.

 

Example: if i don't disable all boot-loader args to do with video i get messed up screen.

 

Lastly try different patch combinations.. like single link width 2, single link width 3 and so on.........Dual link width 1,Dual link width 3.

May sound stupid but i've done in for testing sake and results vary.

Hi 2bad0,

 

you're lifesaver, I've been trying all day to get it working, and always landed either with stuck, reboot or distorted screen. Once I've removed Intel injection from Clover I have working system with QE/CI (according to DVD "show supported features" info) :-)

 

p.s

@GhostRaider, you can update your excelent guide with note that if screen is distorted one may disable any graphics injections (at least for Clover).

 

RIght now I'm booting from Clover USB (FAT32 formatted) as I was unable to get it working when installed to HFS partition.

 

My hardware is Asus U30JC, Core i5-560M, HD Graphics with Optimus (Nvidia 310M - not usable under OSX).

@fingerr Also an Optimus user here, also don't use the Clover Intel HD Injection. You should try to create your own patched DSDT as you can read in the guide (first post).

 

@others Anyone tried my tweaks? Results? :)

Hi beta992,

 

my DSDT is patched (nvidia not visible in ML), but I'm trying to make brightness slider to work. I can adjust brightness OOB but slider is not visible. I've modified DSDT and when I go to screen settings I can see slider but it just don't work (nothing happens when sliding). Can you have a look at my DSDT and check what can be wrong?

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=129266

p.s.

I'll try your mods but first I'd like to make  AppleHDA.kext and brightness working.

 

--edit--

 

I've tried your kext's but AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext (I've replaced all three kext's) is not loaded,and log doesn't say anything about it.

 

Can't say if there is any improvement because I have no idea if GPU throttling is working, and HWSensors doesn't detect my intel grpahics. Any ideas?

I'd probably would have to run some benchmarks but right now no time to play with this and I don't play games (no time for that :-( ).

I heard Apple released Developer Preview 8. Does the framebuffer patch work on Mavericks DP8? If so, then our 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics will be fully compatible with OS X Mavericks when it officially releases in October. Although Giofrida did not offically discover QE/CI, he did however found how to patch OS X 10.9. B)

 

Well there doesn't seem to be anything new for 10.8.5 in this thread but does VGA/HDMI out work on 10.9 or still the same?

 

Ghost, what're the performance impact of the maverick platform in our first gen HD... same, low or fast?  how about stability.

 

I will upgrade to mavericks for the battery savings but I want to know what about performance in these new version

Mavericks GM has released. Luckily it seems that there's nothing changed. The patcher still works.

But I sometimes face a problem which the screenshot shows after I work for a long time. The original kexts from GM is also provided below.

MavericksGMKexts.zip

A restart can fix the problem temporarily. But I want to know how to solve it forever.

Hi guys

I updated the patcher. Now it says in the output if there's an error with a patch.

 

Could someone please upload Mavericks DP8 kexts?

 

Thanks!

I just recently installed OS X Mavericks GM and for everyone else who doesn't know, QE/CI works. As for performance, I think its about the same, maybe slightly faster. I haven't had time to play around with it but for the most part everything seems alright. Again every computer will have different performances but if your happy with 10.8.5 performance, it will be very similar in 10.9 GM.

 

As for stability, its good. 

 

I'll probably update the guide when Mavericks officially releases to the public. Don't have time at the moment but again if you guys want to jump in, you can patch the frame buffer using Giofrida's patcher. His patcher can also patch the plist file to Normal, Alternative, and Alternative 2 if you need it.

Thanks. :)

 

A bit, no much. But the ASUS cooling-part is really bad. To give you an example, I needed to create some holes on the back of the notebook to get some heat out, result: from 60C to 56C idle. :P

Now with tweaking (kexts, Clover, etc.) I managed to get around 50-53C idle. :)

 

To be honest, I also replaced the i3 with an i5-520M CPU, I don't think the notebook was made for a higher CPU, although it is working fine. :P

HI Beta992,

 

which AppleACPIPlatform do you use 1.3.x or stock one 1.8 from ML? If 1.8 tell me if you've modified your DSDT to show proper battery readings.

 

Thanks in advance and best regards,

fingerr.

Ghostrider, can you upload your intelhd kexts? I tried to patch the default FB from 10.9 but i get no luck, CI and resolution works but QE is not ;(. 10.8.5 and 10.8.4 works fine with kext from this topic and SingleLink+LCD FB.

 

BTW: Does anybody know how to set the default value for Brightness slider? (it returns to 100% after reboot)

I'm surprised nobody has said anything about VGA support. Well apparently it works in Mavericks just not the way its suppose to. I guess this is good for users who hate the Internal LCD display and prefer to use an external VGA display. You can basically convert a laptop into a mac mini. You can't extend displays so you have to pick between VGA or LCD.

 

I'll probably write about this in the Extras (Optional) section in my guide.

Thx man will the HDMI work without any extra work or will i have to install extra kext

      DISM is your friend!
       
      Part 1: (For all the computers that don't have UEFI)
       
      Prepare two USB keys, one with El Capitan & one with Windows 10.
      First put the Windows USB, during the installation (when it asked the Windows code) press shift + f10 and will open the command prompt:
      diskpart list disk (list of your hdd) select disk 0 (0 is number of your hdd) clean (ATTENTION clean all your hard disk selected) convert gpt create partition efi size=200 (creates EFI partition) format fs=fat32 label=EFI We made a EFI partition.
      In my Hdd I have 3 partitions ( 1 for Mac, 1 for Windows=Ntfs & 1 in exFat for sharing files between the two systems).
      create partition primary size=100000 (1 partition for Mac OS X 100GB) format fs=fat32 quick label=Mac (after we will format in HFS+ with disk utility) create partition msr size=128 (creates Microsoft Reserved) create partition primary size=100000 (1 partition for Windows 10 100GB) format fs=ntfs quick label=Windows (format in Ntfs) create partition primary (creates a partition with the remaining space) format fs=exfat quick label=Hdd (format in exFat) Now the fun part.
      We should insert the letters for the partitions. Check
      select disk 0 list volume (check the assigned letters, REMINDS the letter assigned to the USB "example d") list partition (check the number of partition EFI "example partition 1") select partition 1 assign letter=h list partition (check the number of partition Windows "example partition 3") select partition 3 assign letter=g exit Then we have the letter "D:\" for the USB, "H:\" for the EFI partition & "G:\" for the Windows partition.
      Now we need to copy the installation files from the USB to the Windows partition.
      cd\windows\system32\ dism /apply-image /imagefile:d:\sources\install.wim /index:1 /applydir:g:\ Break....
      Now we need the Windows EFI boot files.
      cd\ g: bcdboot (check the command line) bcdboot g:\windows /1 en-us /s h: /f UEFI (in my case "/1 It-it") Restart the computer with the Mac USB "Clover bootloader", then select Microsoft EFI and start the installation of Windows 10 in FULL GPT. 
      If you don't see the exFat partition in Windows don't worry.
      (Take a program like Partition Wizard, format the partition in NTFS  and assigns the letter D:\. Now open the command prompt administrator and write:
      diskpart select disk 0 list partition (check the partition before-exFat = after-NTFS "example partition 4") select partition 4 format fs=exfat quick label=Hdd Now you must have the partition exfat visible and writable)
       
       
      Part 2:
       
      Important!  
      Don't format or delete the EFI partition.   
      From the Mac USB we need delete AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext. 
       
      Now we go in to the installation of El Capitan, with disk utility format the partition "Mac" in HFS+ mac journaled, then install Mac OS X.
      While starting El Capitan from your hard drive, we must block AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext. (& add cpus=1 or patch with clover)
      When El Capitan is started:
      Patch AICPM with Clover Configurator Install Clover like this  (of course without installation El Capitan) "Legacy mode" Replace the config.plist in EFI partition and add SMBIOS with clover configurator - macbook pro 6.1 Put the DSDT Put HFSPlus.efi, NTFS.efi in drivers64 folder Insert and replace all kext PS:During the first system start we must go in the system preferences, keyboard, shortcuts and change the key combination of brightness (f2- f3+).
       
       
      Work:  
       
      Intel Core i5 460M
      Intel HD Graphics                                      (Clean graphics without artifacts)
      Wifi & Ethernet                                          (Atheros AR9285 & Realtek 8111)
      Stereo speakers & Microphone                    (IDT92HD81B1X5)

      All USB
      Battery
      Sleep & Wake
      Brightness Values

      Good day,

      I'm trying to install OSX El Capitan on my laptop all the time.
      I have a laptop with a Intel CORE i5 430M Arrandale CPU and first generation Intel HD Graphics.
      The problem is the graphics card.
      I have deleted the kext for the graphics card to install El Capitan.
      After installing it boots also without error messages, but then comes a graphic error. The graphics error was already before I had deleted the Kext before installing.
      The graphics error should not come, however, if I had deleted the kext?

      I can install OSX successfully, but when booting comes a graphic error.

      I have also searched the Internet for solutions. The solutions I had found only work after a successful boot.

      I have tried it with other graphics kext, but without success.

      I also have no other computer with OSX.

      Best regards
