Hi GhostRaider,

 

Thanks for bringing this info all to one place it has been a real help...

I have an Asus U30jc (optimus) and have full resolution and QE/CI is working on OSX 10.8.3.

 

Im having one problem though with my external monitor(VGA/HDMI). When using VGA it is unrecognised in OSX. And when I press the (fn-monitor) hardware button to display out the external monitor both the monitor and the laptops displays go all distorted. When I boot with VGA already plugged in.. the external monitor displays perfectly fine(still unrecognised in OSX) but only at a resolution of 1074x768. HDMI is totally unrecognised.

 

- 10.8.3 Kexts SingleLink LCD+VGA from this thread.

 

Hope you can help.. .Thanks in advanced.

@ GhostRaider

 

I'm sorry it took me so long to reply, I guess we're at different time zones.

FB wasn't loaded, I've used SingleLink to patch it and now that is loaded I get the black screen again (without AppleIntelHDGraphics and with patched FB) , therefore I can't check whether my display is recognized with FB loaded.

 

@ stacyk819

Thanks, I'll download some live linux distro to test EDID right away.

This is more of a framebuffer issue. The problem is that LVDS+VGA is experimental and its not guaranteed to work. For example, for me VGA does not work if I just plug it in and press the display switcher button. VGA only works if I have it connected before I turn on the computer.

 

So far Vertek's has not been around to discuss this issue. Maybe later on he will be available.

 

I mean if you want to just use VGA, I believe you have to set the native resolution of the external display in the boot.org.Chameleon.plist. and have the external display connected before turning on your computer.

 

As for HDMI, its also a framebuffer issue and there is no solution at the moment.

I think you should upgrade your computer to 10.8.3. and then try the guide again. Maybe you will have better progress than in 10.8.2. Has everyone upgraded to 10.8.3? If so I might drop support for older versions of OS X in my guide as it seems that Intel HD Graphics works better on 10.8.3 than on 10.8.2.

I'll update to 10.8.3 and try it with default settings from this tutorial.

I'm using external display via HDMI only (TV for watching movies) and because HDMI isn't working, which framebuffer should I use?

I would like to have the option of using VGA cable if needed.

 

Is there anything I have to be aware of or just to update via regular software update procedure?

As of now HDMI is not working. The thing about VGA is that it depends on how OS X recognizes it. I'm not sure if just plugging a VGA cable in will work and then just use the display switcher key or whether the TV will appear in the Display Preferences. Again, that depends on your computer.

 

Another way is to have the TV connected through VGA before you turn on your computer. Then the screen should output to the TV automatically. As for the TV resolution, as I said to dcrui3, you probably need to set a resolution in the org.Chameleon.boot.plist file.

 

Upgrading to 10.8.3 should be straightforward. Use the Combo version. Remember that before you reboot your computer, you need to delete the Intel HD Graphics kexts from the Extensions folder or it won't boot. (You can save the kexts in a folder or something.)

I've updated to 10.8.3

Loaded default kext from this topic and the wheel on boot stopped spinning and stayed that way.

However, when I load Alternate Framebuffer (VGA+LCD) I get the black screen.

 

I've managed to view my screen with screen sharing and saw that FB was loaded and I can choose my native resolution.

My internal monitor has been recognized and I've took some pictures (I am using VNC with my iPhone, so the photos are bit fuzzy, I hope that it doesn't mind)

I have no idea what could possibly be wrong.

 

I can boot in safe mode.

Your booting with Natit kext right? So let me get this straight:

 

When you boot with all the Intel HD Graphics kext and using the patched framebuffer, the Apple logo freezes?

If this is true, then yes you will need to use the alternative framebuffer.

 

When you boot with all the Intel HD Graphics kexts and using the alternative patched framebuffer, you get a black screen?

I already know why. :P

 

From what I see, your Internal LCD is detected, which is good. The problem is that your internal LCD uses 1600x900 and not 1366x768. I did not provide any framebuffers with patched DualLink. You cannot use the SingleLink version of the framebuffer if your resolution is higher than 1366x768. What this means is that you will have to patch your own framebuffer with DualLink. It will take some tries before your screen works as you will need to try out different combinations. I believe someone was using the DualLink version in Vertek's forum but I don't remember his name. After you patch it, you will need to use the info.plist that the alternative framebuffers has because it will freeze your computer if you don't.

 

Everything is good so far, just try to patch your framebuffer with DualLink and you'll be on your way. :)

That's right.

 

There is one DualLink link :) in Vertek's topic, I'll try that first and write the result here.

I'm thrilled that I'm going in right direction and I would like to say that I'm really thankful for the effort you're putting into this.

 

Fingers crossed, booting with DualLink in progress.

 

I've patched my FB and everything worked like charm this time.

I've got QE/CI and proper resolution.

 

This wouldn't be possible if @GhostRaider didn't help me. Thanks to him, I've got fully working graphics which makes my Acer 7741 almost like a real MacBook :P

 

If anyone bumps into similar problem like me, feel free to follow the procedure which @GhostRaider explained, and also if anyone has some questions related to this issue because of the similarity of hardware, feel free to ask, as of now.

Only patched kext is the AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB, and here it is:

 

http://www.speedysha...hicsFB.kext.zip

 

Use other kexts from this topic.

 

*Note that this is the FB for 10.8.3 patched with DualLink, using alternative info.plist file.

 

Do you mind telling me the code you used in terminal when using Vertek's patcher? I might add DualLink support in the ZIP archive so new users don't have to.

Hi All,

 

I have try the workaround within this topic.

Here is my condition right now (ML 10.8.3):

 

-Installing AppleIntelHDGraphics*.kext with or without Natit.kext provide by GhostRaider

booting with "-v" option, stuck at "Resetting IOCatalogue", then reboot with append "PCIRootUID=1" result is kernel Panic.

 

-Installing Natit.kext + AppleIntelHDGraphics*.kext without AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext

booting with "-v" option, my Intel VGA was detect in System Information, AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext was loaded, but No QE.

 

Is there any workaround for my problem?

I followed this guide to the word and now have QE/CI at native resolution!!! :star_sunglasses::thumbsup_anim:

 

Used alternate framebuffer from the post, Natit.kext, and Resolution module in Chameleon!!

1st gen core i3 370M

Switchable Graphics IntelHD (working) + ATI 5650 (not working)

 

Great guide!!

Nearing a full working Hackintosh!!

Do you mind telling me the code you used in terminal when using Vertek's patcher? I might add DualLink support in the ZIP archive so new users don't have to.

 

I've used /.hdgraphics_patcher -d LVDS+VGA AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB

 

As I've already said, this was the file with the alternative Info.plist

 

Confirmed working.

Hi Pashoni, I've tried Vertex patch, the command similar with you. After that, whats should I do?

Copy the AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB to /System/Library/Extension/AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB/Content/... ?

After patching, you copy the executable AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB to AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext Content/MacOs and replace/delete the one that is already in there.

 

Don't modify the kext which is in S/L/E destination.

 

Do this to file which is on your desktop, or some other location, and after that install that kext regularly.

Gah, I am ready to toss the towel here. I got a Lenovo IdeaPad z360 with a HD5700/Nvidia 310m combo. All the kexts work fine - except for the AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext. As soon as I add it to the mix the installation won't boot. The FB kext works like a charm, giving the proper resolution and all but there's no QE/CI due to the one non-working kext. Any ideas?

Finally, I get QE fully enabled.

 

-Patching the AppleIntelHDGraphics with Verteks pathcer, as pashoni guide, I copy the binary to AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext/Contents/MacOS/ and installing it with other AppleIntelHDGraphics*.kext + Natit.Kext. Problem appear (wheel stop spinning at booting).

-Rebuild kext with "kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel" and "kextcache -system-caches", and

Reboot normally...

I see that many people are finally getting QE/CI on their computers with 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics IGPU. Welcome everyone to the Mac family ... I mean hackintosh family. B)

Looking at old forum posts, a lot people said it was not possible, and said that it required reverse engineering or a brand new kext. All of this time we only had to edit small values in the framebuffer. Not sure how Vertek was the only person that figured this out unless he had some knowledge of the workings of the FB (Maybe he works for Apple? :P lol jk)

 

The toshiba guys are very unlucky ones. I don't understand how Toshiba is so lazy to integrate the EDID into their display instead of the software doing it. Any progress for you guys?

 

As for eDP users, do the Intel HD Graphics 3000 and 4000 users use this type of connection or LVDS?

Just to let you guys know, my ZIP archive already had this, you just had to pick the one you needed, i'm guessing the alternative frame buffer. You didn't have to go through all that trouble. :P Assuming you were using 10.8.3.

Hey GhostRaider!

 

I've been a bit busy since the resolution patch. I was very excited when I learned about the progress that has been made on the QE/CI front. I've got it working on my Acer Aspire 5742z with a Intel P6100 processor (10.8.3). The dimming/contrast is working except for my function keys, will have to look at that later. I couldn't figure out why some people need Natit.kext and others don't. I'm pretty sure it has to do with the SMBios. As long as you choose SMBios 6.1 you don't need Natit.kext. For all other SMBios choices you need Natit to do the injection using AAPL,os-info (or do it in your DSDT). Maybe you can add this to the guide if you think so too. Cheers for writing it and keeping it up-to-date!

Hi Ghostrider,

no progress for me :(. I tried injecting the EDID with Clover but I had no luck whatsoever. Apparently OSX disregards forced EDID injection. It looks like this Toshiba guy here was able to have his internal LCD recognized as internal. He has a HD Graphics 3000 but, via dsdt, he managed to have his LVDS panel fully working (QE/CI) under Lion 10.7.3.

Maybe his guide is applicable to Mounatin Lion and to our Intel HD Graphics as well. I'll try later on this week.

 

Regards
