Intel Framebuffer patching using WhateverGreen

Recommended Posts

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:
framebuffer-patch-enable1framebuffer-con0-enable1framebuffer-con0-flags0x00000090

Ok, I'll try that when I get home. I've been fight this laptop for awhile now. This latest whatever green and lilu design have really helped honestly. Amazing work. Question, being treated as an external monitor will video output still work on my internal monitor or will it just be sent to my external HDMI port?

Since my laptop's internal screen has an eDP connector it was the only way I could get it to display in < 10.13.6 (17G2112). But since it's a Coffee Lake machine I update to 10.13.6 (17G2112) and now Mojave which has native support for CFL and the screen works fine without the patch. Only issue remaining is the screen will stay black for 5 minutes before turning on. Still trying to figure out a fix for it.

Well if I can get mine to run QE/CI natively I'll be set. I'm running a kabylake-r with the uhd620. "1080p". I'm using the latest dp4 10.14 and it's finally allowing me in without using 0x12345678 platform ID. "With whatever green and lilu" but if I try to inject Intel with the proper platform ID 0x59160000 it locks at IOScreenLockState. I'm hoping your fix may get me past that.

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>

So this patch will go in Devices/Properties?  or Devices/add Properties section. Also do i need to add my AAPL platform ID to the patch 0x59160000 = AAAWWQ==? #Headkaze Ive attached my plist. Ive tried adding the attached patch, But my plist always fails. Im no pro by anymeans, Im new to this whole framebuffer stuff. If you could send me in the right direction id would be much appreciated :frantics:

Devices/Properties is the place to put it. Attached is the section added to your config.plist.

Well I've added all the new properties. For some reason I still can't get QE/CI to take off. Ive injected intel, added platformIDs 0x59160000. tried no injection. I can boot into the OS fine.. Just no acceleration. Ive attached a debug/clover folder. Sorry to be a pain.

Can you show me the log for Lilu / WhateverGreen as explained in the first post.

Updated post #2 to include framebuffer info for Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, Cannon Lake and Ice Lake.

 

Also Intel FB-Patcher has been updated to support the above. Again big thanks to vit9696 for all his work without which this would not be possible.

Im sorry about that. Heres the current debug out put from Whatevergreen. For some reason I can't get any output from -igfxdump? Is it because the frame buffers aren't loading?

I don't think 0x59170000 is a valid platform-id. Please check post #2.

Im not, Im using 0x59160000 and ive left fakeID blank. Ive also added my platform ID to Clover/Devices/Properties section.  AAAWWQ==..

Im currently using the config.plist you attached above. And also i added 0x59160000 and Inject intel.

Don't add anything for Graphics/ig-platform-id or Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX. Set Graphics/Inject/Intel=False.

 

If you have an EGPU try adding this to your Devices/Properties entry for your IGPU to disable it:

            <key>disable-external-gpu</key>
            <integer>1</integer>

 

Also I noticed a "Disable minStolenSize" KextsToPatch. Remove it. What is your DVMT? If it's only 32MB and you can't set it higher in BIOS then also add:

            <key>framebuffer-stolenmem</key>
            <integer>19922944</integer>
            <key>framebuffer-fbmem</key>
            <integer>9437184</integer>

Ok, I'll try it when I get home. I've used the setup_var process in cloveruefishell to set my DVMT to 160mb. So it "should" be good on that side. I'll disable the patch. And I also don't have any other gpus. Just the main UHD620. This thing has fought me for awhile now. But you keep getting me further and further :) Thank you! I'll report back asap

Sounds like you don't need the patching for DVMT then. Also make sure you update Lilu + WhateverGreen (use my script posted earlier) as they're being updated almost daily.

Yes sir, I've been running your script each morning to get the latest kext.

Ok, Compiled the latest WhateverGreen and Lilu "debug". Installed in Clover/Kexts/other. Removed all values from graphics section in clover. Only using Devices/Properties. Attached current whatevergreen Log. and Clover. Seems to still be going for 59178086? Which is the actual device ID. But I know its not a valid ID. 

 

Is it possible to inject a fakeID via Device/Properties?

Total noob question here.

How do we find out if we need to patch framebuffer?

I think you should assume you don't. At the very least though you should choose an ig-platform-id suitable for your system and place it in config.plist/Devices/Properties.

In most cases if your DVMT is set to 32 MB in your BIOS and can't be changed and you don't feel confident enough to use setup_var / GRUB you should set framebuffer-stolenmem /
framebuffer-fbmem. If you want your system to have more VRAM you can set framebuffer-unifiedmem. If you need to disable your EGPU then set disable-external-gpu. DP -> HDMI patching is now automatic so not necessary.

 

For my system I need to set framebuffer-pipecount / framebuffer-portcount to 2 and framebuffer-con2-type to -1 to disable connector 2 otherwise it won't go to sleep. I did also have to set framebuffer-con0-flags to 0x00000090 to remove the CNConnectorAlwaysConnected flag to enable my laptop's internal eDP screen to work on < 10.13.6 but now that Coffee Lake support has been added my screen works okay without it (albeit with a 5 minute black screen on boot).

 

EDIT: Added this info to the first post
