    [GUIDE] EDID injection

    Your graphics framebuffer kext is correctly loaded, but you receive no image after boot messages (aka black screen); Your display seem to work fine only randomly; You have blinking screen or many artifacts. EDID injection is a likely solution for all of these! The Clover bootloader makes it very easy to be done 1. On Windows, download and run RW-Everything (this one has multiple interesting utilities but you can use any other, like EDID Viewer, Phoenix EDID Designer, and possibly others...) Note: Linux is also capable of dumping EDIDs, but for my laptop's built-in display, it was only possible through Windows. If you want to try it from Linux, I recommend this guide here. 2. Assuming you're using RW-Everything, click on EDID button. You'll see something like this: (don't copy, it won't work for you, EDIDs differ for each display and this is mine) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 4C A3 00 02 FF FF FF FF10 00 15 01 03 80 1D 10 FF 2F 00 00 A0 57 49 9B 2620 10 48 4F 00 00 00 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 0130 01 01 01 01 01 01 9E 1B 56 78 50 00 18 30 30 2040 25 00 25 A5 10 00 00 19 00 00 00 FD 00 00 3C 0050 D9 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0060 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0070 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 CC 3. Copy and paste it on notepad. Erase the first line and the first column, they are just references, not part of the EDID. You will have something like this: 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 4C A3 00 02 FF FF FF FF00 15 01 03 80 1D 10 FF 2F 00 00 A0 57 49 9B 2610 48 4F 00 00 00 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 0101 01 01 01 01 01 9E 1B 56 78 50 00 18 30 30 2025 00 25 A5 10 00 00 19 00 00 00 FD 00 00 3C 00D9 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0000 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0000 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 CC 4.?Remove every line break and spaces, ending up with a single line of hexadecimal code, then use HEX -> Base64 to convert it to base 64. Save the result as EDID64.txt on a pen drive. This is my base 64 EDID, the general format of yours will resemble it: AP///////wBMowAC/////wAVAQOAHRD/LwAAoFdJmyYQSE8AAAABAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBnhtWeFAAGDAwICUAJaUQAAAZAAAA/QAAPADZCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMw= 5. Final steps: just add it to your Clover config.plist like the example below: (more information here if needed) <key>Graphics</key><dict> <key>InjectEDID</key> <true/> <key>CustomEDID</key> <data>AP///////wBMowAC/////wAVAQOAHRD/LwAAoFdJmyYQSE8AAAABAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBnhtWeFAAGDAwICUAJaUQAAAZAAAA/QAAPADZCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMw=</data></dict> Don't duplicate the Graphics key in your config.plist - be careful to simply add the keys InjectEDID and CustomEDID inside the Graphics key if you already have it. My guide in my signature contains my config.plist attached, you can check it if you're still not feeling sure. Any further doubts, please post here! Thanks to kyndder for originally explaining the process in the Clover bootloader thread.

    Inject EDID set by default!!

    Hi, To start, I wiped my Yosemite install, started completely fresh by wiping my whole SSD and reinstalling Mac OS X as El Capitan and installed my bootloader as one of the newer versions of Clover. I have my current plist attached. I'm having these 2 weird, recurring issues installing Clover build 3763 and El Capitan. I want to note for both of these issues that "nvda_drv=1" is always in my boot flags even if I take it out. I have checked in my plist that it is not set as a boot argument. The first issue that I keep having through multiple attempts is that when I have my Nvidia 740SC physically installed in my computer, I keep getting the "could not allocate runtime area" error. I tried booting by injecting Nvidia, installing the web drivers (even though I shouldn't need them, cause the card is natively supported), no injection at all, etc. Not matter what I've tried basically it will not boot up. I've had this issue ever since my SSD crashed and died (which is why I'm having to reinstall now). I'm thinking at this point that possibly my card got fried too. I can only boot with it physically installed if I do nv_disable=1. However, in my Windows 10 partition, I can detect the card just fine...and it seems there are no issues (No I do not have the Windows drivers installed for the card.) I don't know how to get my computer working with my card installed at all. I've tried everything I could find. The second issue, is that "Inject EDID" is checked off by default in my options, and I cannot boot like that. In order to boot I have to manually uncheck it and stick with "Inject Intel". Then I can boot fine and there are no issues. If I leave it checked, I also get the "could not allocate runtime area" message. Not sure at this point why this error keeps appearing. Thank you to any and all who help me with this mystery that I cannot solve alone. THANK YOU, Ciel config.plist

    iAtkos L2 Display Resolution

    Hello! I have Acer Aspire 7741G with ATI Radeon 5650. My problem is the Resolution of my Display (1600x900), but may mackintosh just says that i have a resolution of 1027:768... I found a nice tutorial and made everything right but then there comes a step with sorting out EDID. Mine looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DisplayProductID</key> <integer>1815</integer> <key>DisplayProductName</key> <string>Internal LCD Forced EDID</string> <key>DisplayVendorID</key> <integer>1970170734</integer> <key>IODisplayEDID</key> <data> AP///////[b][color=#00FF00]??????????????????????[/color][/b] </data> </dict> </plist>/PHP] So my Problem is How to get IODisplayEDID... i already was looking in ioreg -l (Terminal) but i couldn't find the EDID... So i found out that i can get this EDID with the RAW Data but i don't know how to do this PLEASE HELP!!!
  4. Despite all I try my HD 3000 3036 0116 0009 keep freezing on lion 10.7.4. I have tried all I can think of to get this to work but there is nothing that has fixed the problem. I had limited success using Fakesmc 4.2 on 10.7.1 with limited glitches and freezes but the upgrade to 10.7.4 has stopped the positive effects of the fakesmc kext. The only success I have had is using my edid, after adding my edid to the overrides list the graphics preform perfect with one slight problem the default resolution for my monitor is not available in system preferences! I get all resolutions that I can possibly think of other than 1600x900, I get everything from 800x600,85 all the way to 2304x840x96. I don't understand how the edid is showing that it can handle 2304x840,96 when the screen is 17.3 inch at a default of 1600x900,60. This is my edid I have tried it both with getting the edid from windows and from hackintosh so its not a mistake. I have also tried typing 1600x900x32 in chimera and the resolution stays that until the password screen comes on then it reverts back to whatever resolution I had it on before restarting, in this case 1360x768,60 because it is the only resolution that actually kind of fits the screen. I have also tried keeping the edid then installing switchresx and setting a custom resolution of 1600x900x32@60 but the program says its invalid. Even at 1360x768,60 I can see that the graphics are working perfectly and if I plug the computers hdmi into another monitor at 1920x1080,60 it looks perfect and it performs perfect! So my question is "What is wrong with my EDID and why does it not show my monitor as the size it needs?" Below is the edid I have made using terminal and the overrides folder. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DisplayProductID</key> <integer>5022</integer> <key>DisplayProductName</key> <string>Internal LCD</string> <key>DisplayVendorID</key> <integer>1711</integer> <key>IODisplayEDID</key> <data> 00ffffffffffff0006af9e130000000001130103802615780ac4959e575392260f50 5400000001010101010101010101010101010101f82a409061840c30302036007ed6 100000180000000f0000000000000000000000000020000000fe0041554f0a202020 202020202020000000fe004231373352573031205633200a0026 </data> </dict> </plist>
