    An iDiot's Guide To Lilu and its Plug-ins

    @J197978, FCPX can be quite picky about which GPU it want's to use for decode and encode ... in general it will tend to use IGPU for H264 unless a Vega dGPU is installed in which case FCPX will only use Vega ... unfortunately i don't know of a method to decode on one GPU and encode on anther...

    An iDiot's Guide To Lilu and its Plug-ins

    @DimitrisG, Understood ... sorry ... my mistake. In that case the you most likely need to patch the Framebuffer for the correct port and connector assignments and disable any unused ports by configuring them as 'dummy' ports using @headkaze Hackingtool app. See @CaseySJ's guide for info and...

    An iDiot's Guide To Lilu and its Plug-ins

    @DimitrisG ... I think your issue is that none of the Apple IGPU Framebuffers for High Sierra and/or Mojave have native support for Coffee Lake (CFL) UHD 620 .... you can see this for yourself by looking at the framebuffer dumps for CFL IGPU's in this post :-...

    MountEFI v1.1.4 (menu bar utility)

    @headkaze, I tried ... System Preferences->Startup Disk but it does not seem to set the NVRAM values like 'Bless' used to and 'systemsetup -setstartupdisk' does ... also it does not list my clover/EFI boot partition as an option. I guess you could add an option to MountEFI's context menu ...

    MountEFI v1.1.4 (menu bar utility)

    @headkaze, I also looked into the issue in a bit more detail and i think your right, whilst the settings for 'efi-boot-devce' is fairly straight forward, there is also another NVRAM variable called 'efi-boot-data' which is not so simple to interpret. I too found out about the 'bless' command...

    Any chance you can copy and paste your Variable Value code for 'efi-boot-devce' I'll replace your UUID with mine and see what happens .... Cheers Jay

    MountEFI v1.1.4 (menu bar utility)

    @headkaze, Hummm you must have read my mind as i was just about to post that its not highlighting my boot EFI drive ? No Versions of MountEFI or Hackingtool so far have done that for me on any of my Hacks .... Checking NVRAM variables with the latest version of Hackingtool shows that...

    @blob810, Yes thats normal behaviour (Pegged at max IGPU clock rate) when you have the IGPU configured as headless . Absolutely no need for IGPU throttling on dual GPU desktop systems such as iMac. The IGPU does not generate much heat or need much power to run at max speed .. throttling only...

    MountEFI v1.1.4 (menu bar utility)

    @headkaze, Downloaded Version 1.1.2 and ran from terminal, no errors and no partition scheme :- Reinstalled version 1.0.8 and everything works ok :- Not sure if its relevant but i few things to consider :- Running Mojave 10.14.3 MacOS system partition is formatted as HFS+ not APFS My...

    @tallinn, The offical support thread for WhatEverGreen is :- https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/325987-whatevergreen-support-topic/ I seem to remember reading a while back that there are some HDCP flags within the EDID ... I cant remember where I read that but it makes sense as the EDID...

    @blob810, I use the same headless PlatformID of 0x0412000B and SMBIOS Mac15.1 on my White Knight hack (see my sig for details) ... which i used as the basis for writing the headless section of the guide. It's odd how older CPU based systems seem to have less issues with DRM then newer...

    Debate on correct location for 3rd Party kexts ...

    @ModMike, I'm not contradicting anything ... I like most of the moderators here at TMx86 will always advise users to install 3rd party kexts in /L/E and to only inject critical kext necessary to run Macos Installer, Updater and Recovery. This is how Clover was designed handle kexts from the...

    Debate on correct location for 3rd Party kexts ...

    @ModMike, Your free to put your kexts where ever you like .... you don't have to use the kext guide. However you should consider the benefits of installing kexts to /L/E as detailed in section 4 of the guide. @RehabMan details the pro's of installing kexts in /L/E in a bit more detail in his...
