Can you attach you boot log? 

this is a boot log with no dsdt

 

this is the setup where HDMI works

 

do you also want a boot log with the dsdt boot that shows correct vram (1024) (but no screens work on that boot i have to share desktop in!

 

thanks again

What results do you have with MBP6,2 smbios?


EDIT: I would really like to see the result using Clover instead

Just install Clover into an usb key and boot from it.

Hello!

 

Change back to my posted SMBios of MBP 6,2 and exchange the device-properties string in org.chameleon.boot.plist with the attached one. Remove also the DSDT.aml, if it is a patched one. Reboot with flags -f -v. If it does not work, try to boot with flags -x -f -v.

 

Do you have a 3d ready display (120 Hz)? Edid from Darwin Dumper looks like this.

 

Have fun.

hi,

 

not sure i have done this correctly?

 

i opened the .hex file in TextEdit copied the full string (everything) then in PlistEdit i replaced the Device Propaties string with this,

 

i have attached boot.plist before i test for you to check i have done correctly!

 

i am pretty sure my hdmi telly is not 3D?? (its a cheap Tesco home brand 40 inch LED)

 

sorry i'm such a novice and thank you for your time!

 

Everyone!!

Hello!

 

Correct way.

 

Have fun.

Hi

 

Booted with -v -f no screens LCD or HDMI

 

Booted with -v -f -x for safe mode, & still no screens

 

could you (or anyone smarter than me) take a peek at my boot.plist attached above to check i did not break anything please? 

 

as the hex seems unconverted in it to me (not that i know anything!! but normally i see binary gets converted to something else?)

 

thank you again for your time!

Do you have a 3d ready display (120 Hz)? Edid from Darwin Dumper looks like this.

 

 

 

 

CVTE TV is my external HDMI TV

 

i 'think' its only 60htz

 

and not 3D

 

1080p

 

thanks again for all your time

Hello!

 

Laptop LCD. Look in Win, if you can change to 120 hz. Your EDID is 256 byte long and that seems to be a 120 Hz display. EDID for 60 Hz LCD is 128 byte long.

 

Have fun.
