I need to replace the wifi card in the laptop as it got damaged. Are there any alternatives to Broadcom BCM94352Z that works OOB with macOS? I am looking for the same card on eBay and they are very expensive. Seems like the price has gone substantially higher since the time I bought mine. Are...
I'm using iMac15,1 profile.
Without iGPU, Photos app is crashing. I have even created a new library but no luck. Right now I'm back to my default settings. I have iGPU enabled in BIOS, nothing is selected in Graphics section of config file, and I'm using WhateverGreen. Everything seems to work...
This method did not work for me. I already had iGPU enabled so I renamed iGPU to GFX2 and PEGP to GFX0. I removed WhateverGreen kext and also enabled "Inject Intel" and selected the Haswell platform-id.
So I had to enable iGPU in order to stop crashes from occurring when using Photos app and viewing videos (most recently, system froze when viewing a video sent on WhatsApp on the computer). Previously, when I was enabling iGPU, Netflix would not work but for some reason, it's working this time...
It works now. I moved all kexts back to Other folder. So either your framework file or the GVA kext you had in your Other folder or both together did the trick.
One issue that popped up again is the Photos app crash. As soon as I start using it, the system locks up.

It’s an issue with the AMD card. Hardware encoding/decoding is not functioning correctly with a discreet video card. If you enable the on-board graphics(iGPU), Photos app will function correctly. I have faced the exact same problem.
What happens if you just use precompiled kexts found on their respective website? For the most part, Whatevergreen should be able to detect your iGPU and apply appropriate settings without you having to make any changes in the config file.
Have you tried using WhateverGreen + Lilu kext? If not then, place both these files in the Other folder, uncheck “Inject Intel”, and remove all other graphics patches you have applied in your config file. Also, make sure that “Detect kexts=Yes” has been set in the config file. See if this works.
