[FrameBuffer Patch] Patched AppleHDA, AppleALC HDMI Audio Fix Hackintosh


Well-known member

Hello guys, I am back with a major Hackintosh problem that is faced by Hackintosher while using AppleALC.kext or patched AppleHDA.kext.
There are several ways to make audio work on Hackintosh but some known major steps are using patched AppleHDA.kext, AppleALC.kext(Recommended Way) and VoodooHDA.kext. If you used VoodooHDA.kext then HDMI audio should be working out from the box but if you use AppleHDA.kext or AppleALC.kext then you may need this patch to work. If you haven't yet fixed audio on your system head over and first make audio work before following this guide :


Requirements :
  1. Make sure you are using config.plist from OS X RehabMab
  2. Make sure audio is working on your system.
  3. Make sure you use either AppleALC or patched AppleHDA for audio
Before Starting This Guide :
  1. Make Backup of your config.plist as config-bak.plist
  2. Remember OS X does not provide HDMI audio cannot be controlled i.e. No Volume, No mute, No balance, etc from pc/laptop but instead you can control it from TV, receiver, etc. whatever your device is connected.
Beginning of Guide
Download and install the latest version of WhateverGreen.kext and Lilu.kext if you've done it already. Download MultiBeast and install it then open it then Navigate to Customize > Graphics Configuration > Tick Core Graphics Fixup AKA WhateverGreen > Install and once completed reboot your system.

Patching Begin :
--> Binary patching framebuffers using KextsToPatch is Clover is no longer viable method in Mojave for Skylake and above. Now you need to use Lilu and WhateverGreen. so, we've alreadly mentioned about it and installed. You can use this patch in all the previous version and future release of macOS.

Note for CoffeeLake system, WhateverGreen will not work with fake Kaby Lake platform-id's, you will need to have either macOS 10.14 Beta 4 (18A336e) or newer or High SIerra 10.13.6 (17G2112).

Remove all following 5 Kext from your system if you've installed it:
Command to check installed Kext:
kextstat | grep -v
  1. FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics
  2. IntelGraphicsFixup
  3. NvdiaGraphicsFixup
  4. CoreDisplayFixup
  5. Shiki
Sample output after removing

Disable All Graphics Injection, DSDT Clover
  1. config.plist > Graphics > Inject / ATI=NO
  2. config.plist > Graphics > Inject / Intel=NO
  3. config.plist > Graphics > Inject / Nvidia=NO
  4. config.plist > Graphics > Inject / ig-platform-id=NO
  5. config.plist > Devices > FakeID / IntelGFX=

Disable DSDT Clover fixes.
  1. AddHDMI
  2. FixDisplay
  3. FixIntelGfx
  4. AddIMEI
Also, make sure you remove it from config.plist as well. Config.plist > ACPI

Also, Disable UseIntelHDMI from Config.plist > Devices SECTION and remove boot argument -disablegfxfirmware and remove any IGPU and HDMI entries from :
config.plist > Devices > Arbitary
config.plist > Devices > properties
config.plist > Devices > AddProperties

Remove any IGPU and HDMI related SSDT and DSDT from Clover/ACPI/patched/
Renaming GFX0 -> IGPU
Screen Shot 2019-06-09 at 9.41.34 PM.png

Download gfxutil tool and double click it to unzip it, now head over to directory using Terminal > cd Downloads.
$./gfxutil -f IGPU
DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)
Now, at this you know device path for IGPU.

For the AAPL,ig-platform-id entry Clover requires this value to be in Data format so you need to reverse the bytes. So, for the platform-id 0x19160000 you need to reverse the byte so the output would be 00001619. And add this value to AAPL,ig-platform-id in config.plist > Devices > Properties..

But remember you should use ig-platform-id that is the closest match to your system. Basically, you can determine the generation of your CPU by the first digit after the hyphen.
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2760QM (Gen 2)
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5257U CPU @ 2.70GHz (Gen 5)
- Intel(R) Core(TM) m3-6Y30 (Gen 6)
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7500U (Gen 7)
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8350U (Gen 8)

So, assuming if I have i7 7200U CPU then that is an equivalent case with - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7500U so I should use Laptop AAPL,ig-platform-id i.e. 0x591B0000(Gen 7).

Framebuffer Patching
WhateverGreen does most of the work automatically. As said earlier you should choose ig-platform-id suitable for your system and place it in config.plist > Devices > Properties.

Types of Framebuffer Patching
  1. Arbitrary (Recommended)
  2. All Data
  3. Find & Replace
1) Arbitrary Patching (Recommended)
Uncomment the following lines that should be present in config.plist by default :
framebuffer-patch-enable (required to enable below)
framebuffer-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id)
(all below are optional)
framebuffer-cursormem (Haswell only)

framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below)
2) All Data
uncommnet conX :
framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below)
3) Find & Replace
uncomment following framebuffer patchX:
framebuffer-patchX-enable (required to enable below)
framebuffer-patchX-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id)
framebuffer-patchX-count (optional; defaults to 1)
Sample Image

Save the config.plist > File > Save. Close and reboot your system.
Now your HDMI audio should be functioning correctly. :):);)

have you tried this guide?
I followed the guide with changing the config.plist , and the problem was resolved, but the issue that happened after changing the plist that the second display that connected through VGA cable can't wakeup after sleep it goes black screen I have to disconnect the cable and reconnect again to by pass the issue.

You could try with the same config (Just backup the original one and try the method, skip the changing config.plist portion).
