Hello from Brazil, everyone. I'd like to ask you guys for a little assistance, if possible:

 

I have a Lenovo ideapad z460 with a Core i3 350m processor (Arrandale). The kext package provided for QE/CI works beautifully with Chameleon bootloader and Yosemite.  From 10.10 to 10.10.5, I have always selected the SingleLinK option (since my native resolution is 1366x768), "Normal" Framebuffer, LCD+VGA LW1. With these choices for Chameleon/Yosemite, I have QE/CI fully enabled.

 

Here is my problem:  I have now decided to install El Capitan 10.11.6 and use Clover Legacy (laptop has older bios - no UEFI support) as the bootloader. Depending on which Framebuffer I choose, either the system won’t get past the Apple Logo and progress bar, or it does reach the desktop, but the screen is all garbled. I have tried every Framebuffer kext provided, but the result is always the same: either the system never reaches the desktop, or it does reach it, but the screen is all messed up. 

 

In Clover settings, I have “PatchVBIOS” checked, but everything else unchecked.  Clover GUI resolution is perfect.

 

Here is where things get confusing:  With Clover, if I do not install AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext, I can reach the desktop just fine with my laptop’s native resolution. However, obviously no QE/CI…

 

If I use Enoch as the bootloader, I can install the kexts from the package and have QE/CI fully enabled?!

 

Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

 

 

Anyone?

How did you solve the problem?
Here since 10.13.4 it does not work any longer with HS and Mojave.

Hi, i just scrapped my dsdt and add pnlf patch directly to dsdt but didn't work, i also followed rehabman guide how to patch dsdt/ssdt for brightness it shows the slider but it still didn't work, I'll try more futher tomorrow for patching and using AcpiBacklightInjector kext

@RiskyRis

I misunderstood you
I thought with you the brightness control works.

 

DSDT.aml.zip

Worked earlier with IntelBacklight.kext and DSDT.
IntelBacklight.kext now broken
Have synonymous only the slider without function.
I also tried other solutions from Rehabman, but to no avail.

Here's my dilemmas guys, I have 2 1st Gen Intel hd laptops. And they both running high Sierra 10.13.6. I just can't seem to use HDMI out to tv, whenever I do, I get blank white screen. Is it possible to use HDMI out with those 1st Gen Intel hd machines running MacOs?

Guys I have a weird issue. I am running Mojave on Gen 1 laptop. I have qe/ci working when i choose smbios macbook pro 6.1 however when insert usb pen drive it does not get recognised.

When I change smbios to mackbook pro 9.1 qe/ci does not work i have to inject 12345678 to boot back into system but usb gets recognised.

I have usbinjectall and usb generic kext files in efi other folder.

For those who have gen 1 laptop fully working with qe/ci and usb ports please advice on what to do.

Any help would be appreciated.e850fb0325a1dc2b7383fcf6bf0a6fcd.jpgfa484e8c5502374ffa5cbd4c561a84e8.jpg9ac9c884707be695d1dc0857f7bab6d0.jpg

Fyi, my friend's 1st Gen. Intel HD Graphics is working fine with QE/CI enabled under macOS Mojave Beta 2 using patched AppleIntelHDGraphics*.kext from Sierra (16A323: 1st MAS Release). Have you tried with this?

Wow... :thumbsup_anim:
I also have QE/CI with Mojave.
I have again installed my 5 patched Intel Kext's and IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext from the HS with KextUtility. Now QE / CI non metal works with unsupported SMBIOS MacBookPro 6.1.

Now everything works.
VLC, Youtube-Video's works
DVD player plays DVD's

Hi Badruzeus, MacPeet,

 

I am able to get full hardware acceleration on my T410i with Sierra Kexts and Yosemite / El Capitan Patched FB Kext. However, I notice that the sidebar of the active finder window or menubar/dropdown-options are very dark (this is not dark mode). See in the attached screenshot.

 

Is it a problem or it is like that? How can I have the sidebar or menubar (including top menubar) with base color white. The sidebar base color is white in the inactive window.

 

I don't see this in Badruzeus screenshot. His top menubar is simply transparent and shows the underneath blue.

 

But your's (MacPeet) and mine top menu bar are not transparent but rather dark grey. 

 

Also, is there a way to make the backlight brightness work?

 

Thanks.

These are side effects of running Mojave on unsupported non-Metal GPUs. There is no fix and you're mistaken about Badruzeus's screenshot: the Finder bar is not transparent at all, you need to look it up closer.

 

The best you can apply is "hybrid transparency" to light mode to workaround those dark matters. Jackluke detailed this nice and effective solution here.

 

You can also apply it after login by executing the following little script-based app I derived from Jackluke's work and created through Automator. Simply drop the app in the Applications folder and add it to your Login items (in User & Groups PrefPane) to auto run when you log in.

Hybrid_transparency.zip

 

It's made from this script:

HybridTransparency.scpt

 

tell application "System Events"

       tell appearance preferences

              do shell script "defaults write com.apple.universalaccess reduceTransparency -bool false"

              do shell script "killall Finder"

              do shell script "killall Dock"

              do shell script "killall NotificationCenter"

              do shell script "killall Spotlight"

              do shell script "defaults write com.apple.universalaccess reduceTransparency -bool true"

              do shell script "killall Finder"

              do shell script "killall Spotlight"

       end tell

end tell

 

The script/app 1st disables transparency reduction and restarts Finder/Dock/Notification Center/Spotlight to reset everything to default. It then enables transparency reduction but only resets Finder + Spotlight to put the hybrid transparency in place: Finder + SpotLight are set without transparency but nothing else which leads to white Finder bar/windows + white Spotlight but, say, Dock remains translucent for instance.

In dark mode, the menu bar is very slightly transparent.
In light mode helps, System Preferences / Accessibility / Display / set  reduce transparency.

do you manage to make your brightness control work, could share how to guide?

Nope, I don't see the brightness slider. Sleep is also not working, so I have disabled sleep, hibernate and standby using pmset command.

 

I have a T410i with Intel HD Graphics, does anyone know how much it is different from T420. There seems to be a very nice guide and configuration prepared by tluck (@tluck) for T420, I'm thinking to apply that and see how much of that helps.

no no is not a good idea because T420 have a HD 3000 ( I GOT ONE )

the best one is the T430 with HD 4000 , i got one six months ago 

i'm running MOJAVE WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS 

ALL IS WORKING

I understand that and will use the appropriate kexts for arrandale graphics. I already have them working currently. The problems I want to solve is sleep and backlight which need dsdt/ssdt modifications but I don't understand them. 

In one message I read tluck saying that T410 is quite close to T420 and with small adjustments we might be able to get things working properly.

@MacPeet i found workaround for the brightness problem on This graphics.

1. Patch dsdt for brightness using this guide or @mnorthern guide.

2. After that use IntelBacklit driver from rehabman, delete ACPIBacklit

3. Download Brightness By bergdesign

4. Voila you have working brightness on High Sierra

 

Notes :

The slider that shown on Syspref became only cosmetic, fn brightness keys works but not affecting the display

 

Proof :

Proof brightness control working

I confirm it to be working in Mojave on T410i with Intel HD Graphics. Now only thing that is remaining is sleep/hibernate.

Hello!

 

What you guys are using, is only a dimmer, that shades graphically the backlight of the screen and does not any powersaving. You should better try this one, if it is working for you. https://github.com/Bensge/NativeDisplayBrightness/releases

 

Have fun.

 

Nope it's certainly changing brightness because when I installed it I can see / change to increased brightness. Prior to that the brightness was sitting at 50% level.

Hello!

It is only shading brightness  and no real energy safer. On ac it does not matter so much. On battery it has no effect except the LVDS is shaded. Brightnes is battery draining as fast as without this gadet.

 

But when you write, that it is working as native brigthness without changing the level in screen preferences (moving slider), then it should be. :rolleyes:

 

And now I am out of this. :blink:

 

Have fun.

Hi, I totally understand what you are saying and I appreciate you trying to correct or any misunderstandings. But I feel that if it's only shading the graphics then (don't you think that) I'd have no way to have the perceived brightness going higher. With shading the graphics, I can only have my perceived brightness between 0 (with graphics shaded to all black) to whatever I had prior to this hack (no shading).

 

But when I applied this hack, I can set my screen to brightness level which wasn't possible prior to hack. That can only be possible if the default graphics are already shaded and increasing brightness removes or further reduce those shadings.

 

Anyways please don't be out of this. Continue your views and suggestions. I will also try your other suggested application and will provide my comments.

I confirm that you are absolutely correct and the brightness application that seems to be working is simply shading the graphics. But here's what made the difference in my case and the reason for thinking that it worked actually in my case.

 

Before I tried to apply this hack, I didn't have intelbacklight kext. Yesterday I noticed that just when the apple progress bar at boot was about 10% I see an increase in backlight. I never saw this prior to this hack so basically it's intelbacklight kext that made the difference and actually increased the backlight. And from here the brightness application only shaded the graphics.

 

So finally conclusion is that intelbacklight kext did increase the brightness (probably to the max) but then she to whatever reasons, we are not able to adjust it with the slider available in display preferences or the keys. I do see the brightness icon pop on the screen when I use the keys but no change in brightness.

 

So what could be the reasons, does the dsdt not declaring all the brightness levels to the OS?

 

Any comments would be appreciated.

Can someone please help me solve the flickering at around 60-70% apple logo progress bar (before the login screen appears) or even any pointers what it is? I have tried the second stage boot graphics glitch patch but it didn't help, probably not the same thing.

 

It's i3-370m with Mojava 10.14.1 with patched fb kext from El Capitan for DualLink and Normal FB.

I have QE/CI working but this flickering before login screen appears is really annoying. Scroll the video to 0:08. After the flicker, it returns to apple logo/progress bar and continues to login as normal.

      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+).

      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
