Works perfect on 10.10 release version

Here is the modded AppleIntelFrameBufferCapri.kext and DSDT.aml and Config.plist

 

The only change in the DSDT and the Config.plist is the ig-platform-id 0x01660009. You can take these files as-is or make the change yourself if you would like. We seem to set it from both places, but the DSDT id seems to override the Config.plist. So make sure you change the DSDT values

 

 

Install the kext using KextDrop or any other tool.

Yes, it will only work with DP to HDMI or DP to DP. I did not mod it for VGA.

 

I do not see any lag. I wonder why you see it. In fact I see the transitions go much smoother with this one.

@jelmo2

Thank you for the advice!

Unfortunately, I am not following.. I am very noob at this so you would have to be more specific on what I have to do...

Make sure that you installed Clover to your USB Drive in this way:

  • Select your USB Drive and the select “Custom Install”
  • Select “Install for UEFI booting only”
  • Select Themes
  • Select Drivers64UEFI

 

1. Ensure the EFI partition on your USB Drive is mounted. 

 

2. Create a new folder in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/Kext/ Name it "10.10"

 

3. Copy the  fakesmc.kext file from  /SurfacePro 1° Gen FilesPackage V.0.5.1/Drivers/ folder to   /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/Kext/10.10/ folder

                 

4. Copy the  GenericUSBXHCI.kext file from  /SurfacePro 1° Gen FilesPackage V.0.5.1/Drivers/Yosemite Only/  folder to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/Kext/10.10/ folder         

 

5. Copy  the dsdt.aml and ssdt.aml files from  /SurfacePro 1° Gen FilesPackage V.0.5.1/ folder to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/ folder

 

6. Copy  the config.plist file from  /SurfacePro 1° Gen FilesPackage V.0.5.1/Dsdt & SSDT/ folder to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ folder

 

Proceed with Part 2: from post #1

@jahstories, @frank Pacheo

I finally got past step 2! Yosemite is now installed on my HD.

 

Step 3 is confusing because every time I follow the instructions it just takes me through the installation process again..

No welcome start up screen.

 

Please help!

 

I appreciate it

Alright! Finally got it to work!

 

Now the only problem is signing to iCloud, iMessage, etc., etc. 

Is anyone else having this problem?

 

I have been searching and searching but I cannot find a solution that works for me.

 

@jahstories please help me out!

I did run into that problem with the beta. I do not remember how I fixed it though. Look in the yosemite beta thread, I do remember posting it there.
