I don't understand why you are using a surfacepro 2 config.plist

 

when in the main post there is this warn.

 

NO SUPPORT IF YOU USE OTHER GUIDES, METHODS OR FILES PACKAGE.

 

Never mix files, the config.plist on the pack is mandatory to make everything works, you just need to edit the smbios part to achieve AppStore access.

 

@jahstories

 

the config.plist is for the missing bluetooth controller and the graphics

for the release Yosemite

 

the beta Yosemite don't work 

always stuk on bluetooth controller en laggy graphics

there is no need to quote the whole post...

 

As i said before i can't provide any help if you guys mix files and other stuff.

 

Using files from different configuration can only create more problems.

 

Even cause is the config.plist that its injecting the right platform id for correct gpu accelleration.

 

And please remember to don't use dsdts or other tables from different machine, cause that can even damage the device :/

 

Btw

 

Obviously you can do whatever you want with the files inside the pack, but discuss your experiments on another thread please.

 

Good Hack.

Guys, does anyone have a fix for the hdmi output? Nor does it work with the provided kexts (that's normal), neither with the HD4000 fix from the Vietnam tool.

@Mirone
Is there a patch available? (Or instructions somewhere? I thought I saw a post with this specific info in the previous thread - Mavericks - but I can't seem to find it)

Oh, I didn't phrase it properly. I have a problem with the video output, not the audio one. Audio is working fine.

It just doesn't work. I connect an external monitor to the miniDisplayPort via a miniDisplayPort to DVI adapter and it doesn't work. 
In my previous setup (Mavericks 10.9.5) I had to install a 'HD4000 DP/HDMI port' kext from the Hackintosh Vietnam Tool, which I also did now in the Yosemite clean setup and it doesn't work. Is there any workaround?

Nope. It doesn't work. My previous AppleIntelFramebufferCapri was version 10.0.86 and the one you attached is 10.0.77. 
The only difference with 10.0.77 is that when I plug in the cable, the Surface screen goes black for half a second (as if it understood that I plugged in an external screen) but the external screen doesn't receive a signal. 

With the 10.0.86 it didn't even 'blink' when I plugged in the cable..

as i said i cannot test right now,

but i think that patching the actual framebuffer should fix, i think wen1 already did that... 

 

and i've already asked him to share it... :)

Just wanted to add my success here...

 

I was able to get mostly everything working so far using this guide on my Surface Pro 1 - Single boot - OSX Yosemite.

 

Audio, pen, touch, keyboard, bt, displayport out all working for me :-]

 

The only hiccups so far:

 

-When installing Yosemite, the screen was hard to see due to black and white lines running across the screen. I just dealt with it and continued with the install. Eventually this was fixed after booting the hard drive and installing all the kext files. (although it was pretty tough to see what I was doing the whole time lol)

-Graphical glitches during boot -- Apple logo is displayed multiple times across the screen at boot - also when login screen comes up the screen flickers a few times. (I believe this is a known issue caused by the AppleFrameBufferCapri?)

-Still no internal WiFi (Which everyone already knows isn't working)

 

Thanks for all your hard work JahStories and everyone else who has contributed.

Jahstories,

​Thank you again!

The kext you linked to has resolved the multiple apple logos during boot glitch, thank you!

 

I have a micro usb wireless adapter coming today. -- I will update once I have a chance to install.

 

The only real problem remaining for me is the flickering screen at password screen right after boot, but it sounds like that is an issue you are already aware of.
