So even on non ati graphics machines we will need WEG? Because it will include Intel and Nvidia fixups?

 

Yes the name is just incidental now.

The output will be in /AppleIntelFramebuffer_GEN_KERNX_Y.

 

Sorry for the noob question but can you give a bit more details on Where do i find the output of this ?.

The root of your boot drive. Eg. /AppleIntelFramebuffer_9_18.0

How to determine which patches are needed and which are not needed? It is unclear how to begin.

Most people don't need to patch framebuffers manually. The most common patch required is DP->HDMI connector conversion for audio which is already done in WhateverGreen automatically.

 

Personally I need to disable connector 3 otherwise my machine can't sleep. Some people need to patch stolenmem / fbmem to match the DVMT-prealloc in their BIOS. There are different reasons for framebuffer patching but you may not need it.

whatevergreen complains about unknown format during boot. patcher tool shows 515 mobile when it's 530 GT2 desktop. got a very long patch, inserted into config.plist but the jitter remains. ideas?

Please download the latest Lilu + WhateverGreen. If you don't know why you're patching framebuffers then best you don't.

using the latest ones. whatever debug version so -igfxdump boot flag produces the appropirate file. patching because of crazy jitter. if left alone without patching jitter is the same, no change. other options?

Show me your WhateverGreen log and your Clover config.plist/Devices/Properties patch.

 

I don't think you're using the latest versions of Lilu + WhateverGreen. You need to download them both and compile then copy Lilu.kext debug version into WhateverGreen and compile it. The "unknown format" bug was only fixed today.

that is definitely NOT what I've done. thank you for your help. perhaps the jitter problem will be solved in an upcoming 'release' version?

You never actually told me what you're trying to patch. Intel FB-Patcher is only a tool to help you create a patch. You have to do the work to figure out what patch you need for your system. For example do you know the DVMT-prealloc value for your BIOS? If it's 32MB then you should set stolenmem/fbmem to something like in the example.

 

In general framebuffer patching is not necessary because WhateverGreen takes care of most issues automatically. I do not recommend patching framebuffers unless you know why you're doing so. Also you should only patch the values you need to not everything Intel FB-Patcher outputs.

dvmt is set to 128MB, anything smaller and it doesn't even boot. HS works fine with the iGPU but Mojave has a lot of jitter, can't really "work" at all, so I thought using your method here might cure it. I was obviously wrong, that's fine.

You are completely right! I compiled the latest kexts versions (Lilu.kext, v1.2.6 and WhateverGreen.kext, v1.2.1) and it all worked automatically.

Can we use FB patcher to patch changing ports in kblframebuffer? Say if I wanted to change LVDS to eDP in 0x59160000? Im not exactly sure of what data to input into the app.

You can change the connector type but eDP is the same as LVDS so it should not be necessary. Here are the connector types:

Zero       = 0x0
Dummy      = 0x1 ; Always used as dummy, seems to sometimes work as VGA
LVDS       = 0x2 ; Just like on AMD LVDS is used for eDP
DigitalDVI = 0x4 ; This is not eDP despite a common misbelief
SVID       = 0x8
VGA        = 0x10
DP         = 0x400
HDMI       = 0x800
AnalogDVI  = 0x2000

I was told elsewhere the eDP support on the hd620 "0x59160000" on 10.13.6/10.14 was not supported. I'm hoping that info was not correct lol.

One way you might get around it is to turn off the CNConnectorAlwaysConnected flag. Then it will treat your screen as an external. Only downside is you wont have brightness control.

 

Patch looks like this:

<key>framebuffer-patch-enable</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>framebuffer-con0-enable</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>framebuffer-con0-flags</key>
<integer>0x00000090</integer>

      Hi,
       
      I am trying to passthrough FirePro D700 gpu to MacOS Catalina VM in ESXi running on MacPro6,1.
      I have tried normal MacOS VM with ESXi it didn't work. After deep inspection and research I found out that ESXi doesn't provide the VBIOS to MacOS VM and hence no way of MacOS to read information about the GPUs.
       
      After researching more I found out that with SSDT i could inject VBIOS via "ATY,bin_image" property. I extracted VBIOS with DarwinDumper and created SSDT. I installed OpenCore to add this SSDT and enabled WhateverGreen and Lilu. Now IORegistry shows that I have bios for my GPU but still there is no output on any of my ports.
       

       
      I am trying to inject more properties but no luck.
      I have attached my OpenCore folder and IOReg from the VM below.
      Has anyone ever attempted something similar? Any help or pointers how can I implement this?
       
      PS : Just to let you know I can make this work with Proxmox as it allows an option to inject GPU vbios but need ESXi for compatibility purposes.

      Hello. I am experiencing a problem with my Catalina vanilla installation.
      My Dell 7567's screen is constantly blinking. This started in the installer and persisted after successful installation. Apart from the mentioned, the system is working perfectly fine.
      I am able to disable the backlight completely by pressing F11/brightness down button. I am barely able to see the on-screen text using a desk lamp afterwards.
      I have tried installing AppleBacklightFixup.kext, Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext and setting my SMBIOS to iMac18,1 but none of those proposed solutions have helped me so far.
      To illustrate the problem, I have recorded a video (link) of my laptop booting into the installer and then shutting down. I have also included my CLOVER folder.
       
      I would appreciate any help or advice.
       
      Best regards, Luka

      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.

      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.

      VirtualSMC.kext
      WhateverGreen.kext
      XHCI-unsupported.kext.

      NOTE 1: The USBPorts.kext extension along with 3 aml files included in patched folder (SSDT-EC.aml, SSDT-UIAC.aml y SSDT-USBX.aml) were generated by joanserramiret with the configuration of USB ports for this motherboard so that the limit defined by macOS of 15 ports is not exceeded. Leaves the system configured in this way:
      Enabled all USB2 ports that are not part of a USB3 port (1 internal for BT + 4 rear that are together + 2 on the front) Enabled the USB2 ports that are part of the 2 rear red USB3.1 ports Disabled the USB2 ports that are part of the 4 rear blue USB3 ports Enabled all USB3 ports except the internal one for USB type C connection. Summary: Rear blue ports do not recognize USB2 devices.

      NOTE 2: XHCI-unsupported.kext is required for XHC chipsets whose Device ID is not included in macOS. Depending on the USB driver of your board, it may be necessary to install some additional extension:
      8086: 8CB1 on macOS 10.11.1 or lower: XHCI-9-series.kext 8086: 8D31, 8086: A2AF, 8086: A36D, 8086: 9DED: XHCI-unsupported.kext 8086: 1E31, 8086: 8C31, 8086: 8CB1, 8086: 8D31, 8086: 9C31, 8086: 9CB1: FakePCIID.kext + FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext. This board (generally Z390 chipset boards) carries the USB 3.1 controller with device ID A36D so the XHCI-unsupported kext is required. You can check your device ID at
      /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBHostFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleUSBXHCIPCI.kext/Contents/Info.plist Config.plist file

      macOS Catalina install

      There are many publications with instructions so I will only comment on a few specific details.
      The installation USB memory must have a GUID partition scheme so that the board's UEFI can boot from it. I have prepared the USB with the createinstallmedia method + the application "Install macOS Catalina" in the Applications folder The device is USB 3 and, connected to the front USB 3 port, it performs the task quite quickly I have used Clover r5121 which is currently the latest version. The EFI folder of the installation USB can be the same as that of the hard disk with 2 differences: Acpi> SSDT> PluginType deselected and Acpi> Boot leave Default Boot Volume blank and Timeout -1 (so that no volume will boot automatically from the Clover menu). To mount the EFI partition (of the disk or the USB device) I have used Clover Configurator which makes this task very simple or the command line (diskutil), first finding out what disk and partition number is the EFI (diskutil list) and showing it later (mountdisk):
      sudo diskutil list
      sudo diskutil mountdisk / dev / disk2s3  
      RX 580

      Although my RX 580 card is a model from the XFX brand, known for using custom VBios and giving problems in macOS, in my case it seems to work well with Lilu and WhatEverGreen. Booting the operating system it does not show artifacts, the 3 DP ports and the only HDMI port work, you can send the image simultaneously to 2 screens (I have not tried more) with the usual duplication options, yo can send sound in addition to image to one TV by HDMI, during the installation of the operating system it works correctly provided that Lilu and WhatEverGreen are in the USB device, etc. GeekBench 5 Scores: Metal 50100 / OpenCL 44100. As a comparison, the integrated card does not reach 4800 in Metal.
      Regarding the hardware decoding of H264 and HEVC videos, the Hackintool tool and the VideoProc application report that it is not supported although the playback of files of both types with rates of up to 20 mbps is correct so I suspect that it actually encodes well. In order for hardware decoding to appear as supported in the commented applications, the integrated Intel Graphics 630 card must be enabled even if it is disconnected in headless mode (using the RX 580 card as primary sending image to the screen).
       


      Sound

      This board incorporates the Realtek ALC1220 chip that needs the AppleALC extension to work. AppleALC is a Lilu plugin so both must be properly installed.
      Note: Clover > Devices > Audio > Inject 11 or 13 or 15. I’ve tried several layouts and this are the only valid at least in my case.
      Some users have commented that the system does not load AppleALC and they have no sound despite having the extensions in EFI / CLOVER / kexts / Other. In these cases it can be successful to install AppleALC and Lilu in / Library / Extensions and rebuild the extensions cache with Hackintool (a very convenient way to do it) or with this Terminal command:
      sudo spctl --master-disable; sudo mount -uw /; killall Finder; sudo chown -v -R root: wheel / System / Library / Extensions; sudo touch / System / Library / Extensions; sudo chmod -v -R 755 / Library / Extensions; sudo chown -v -R root: wheel / Library / Extensions; sudo touch / Library / Extensions; sudo kextcache -i /  
      What this command does is disable Gatekeeper, mount the system disk in read / write mode, repair permissions on the extensions folders and rebuild the cache. But all of that is done by Hackintool with less work on our part.

      Ethernet

      This board carries the Intel I219V chip that works well with the IntelMausiEthernet extension.

      Wifi & Bluetooth

      I use a Fenvi FV T-919 mini PCI-E card that carries both wifi and bluetooth chips. This card works perfectly in macOS without needing anything other than placing it on the board because it is recognized as Airport Extreme and Bluetooth Apple. Has its own article on perez987.

      Disks

      Samsung EVO 860 SSD. It is a solid state disk with references to work well in Mac. In my case it works well, with a read speed of 430 and a write speed of 250. I have tried faster SSDs but they have given problems to install Catalina, instead with the EVO 860 everything has worked perfectly.

      Integrated graphics

      Integrated Intel Graphics 630 card: we can to make it work correctly by adding some properties in Clover's Devices tab. For it to work you have to:

      - enable it on the board as primary graphics: Initial Display Output IGFX instead of PCIe 1 Slot (actually this is the final step after modifying config.plist)
      - add in config.plist: Boot> Boot Arguments> igfxonln = 1
      - apply a patch (video and audio) in config.plist: Devices> Properties. It is easier to do it from the config.plist file in text mode than from Clover Configurator. With the file open as text find the lines

This behavior occurs if the cable that comes out from the HDMI port on the motherboard (the only existing connector on this Mobo) plugs in a DisplayPort port on the monitor; if it plugs directly into another HDMI port (monitor or TV) the bug does not occurs and the PC goes in and out of sleep normally.

      Currently the only way to have the graphics card connected to a port other than HDMI without this crash is by replacing the "hda-gfx" property with "no-hda-gfx" in the above code of config.plist. The 2 lines
      <key>hda-gfx</key> <string>onboard-2</string> must be replaced by
      <key>No-hda-gfx</key> <data>AAAAAAAAAAA=</data> After adding this property, you will no longer have sound over HDMI / DP but sleep works very well.

      In summary:
      - Intel HDMI to DisplayPort monitor> has HDMI audio output but has kernel panic when coming from sleep
      - Intel HDMI to HDMI TV> has HDMI audio output and sleep works fine
      - Intel HDMI to DisplayPort monitor with "no-hda-gfx"> sleep works fine but HDMI audio output is lost.

      (based on the post "[GUIDE] General Framebuffer Patching Guide (HDMI Black Screen Problem)" by CaseySJ; thanks also to deeveedee for his help).

      This card can be left activated without connection to the monitor (headless mode) and apparently does not show any interference with the rest of the system.

      With the integrated card as the main card, the system shows enabled both graphics cards and allows to have a screen connected to the Intel 630 via HDMI and a different screen connected to the RX 580 via DP or HDMI, in this case the primary screen is that from the Intel and the other only works when the graphics driver is loaded but, once the system is up and running, the screens allow duplication options as if they depend on a single card.
       
       
       
       
       
      Evolution to Oc Quirks

      OC Quirks is an EFI driver for Clover that replaces AptioMemoryFix and all OsxAptioFix variants. It supports the OpenCore quirks model. AptioMemoryFix has evolved little in the most recent stage and is in a way becoming obsolete. Next versions of Clover will probably stop installing AptioMemoryFix and switch to OC Quirks which is evolving and receiving frequent improvements. You can read about this on the working group website: ReddestDream.

      Migrating our installation from AptioMemoryFix to OC Quirks is relatively simple:
      download the latest version of OC Quirks (search Releases, current version is 23) have a USB device that boots up properly to use in case of failure mount the disk's EFI partition delete AptioMemoryFix and any other OsxAptioFix variant add OcQuirks.efi, OpenRuntime.efi and OcQuirks.plist to Clover's drivers/UEFI folder change to true DevirtualiseMmio and ProtectUefiServices in the file OcQuirks.plist (recommended on boards with Z390 chipset) in Clover> Quirks config.plist file, check the boxes AvoidRuntimeDefrag - DevirtualiseMmio - EnableSafeModeSlide - ForceExitBootServices - ProtectUefiServices - ProvideConsoleGopEnable - ProvideCustomSlide - SetupVirtualMap - SyncRuntimePermissions and assign the value 0 to ProvideMaxSlide Restart the PC.  
      Kernel Panic with BIOS F10c if integrated graphics is enabled

      The Z390 Aorus Elite board comes with BIOS F9 with which the text of this post has been written.

      A few days ago I updated to the current version which is F10c and, since then, I have suffered a kernel panic with the forbidden symbol when going from the Clover menu to the macOS boot screen if the integrated card was enabled in BIOS. This happened regardless of whether the Intel UHD Graphics 630 card was set to Clover (fully for monitor output or headless mode for encoding) or not.

      Returning to BIOS F9 the system has returned to working as before and the kernel panic has disappeared. I can have the card enabled or disabled again in BIOS without problems.
