    HDMI audio - works just fine now, it wasn't my main concert. Not until I get a new monitor. anyway. But audio works fine all over and I can use my interface again with Logic.

    Removed NullCPUPowerManagement.kext & GeneruicUSBXHCI.kext

    With Clover, I applied the TRIM patch + the name fix for the GPU. Now it shows Intel HD Graphics 620 1536 MB

    IGPU PM (GFX0->IGPU rename) - I hope I did it right using SSDT-1.aml, my first attempt resulted in failure.

    as for native AirportAtheros40.kext can you please elaborate? My WiFi is not working and it's not support (Atheros 9565) and as far as Bluetooth, I actually rather disable it (I don't have any single use for this technology and never had) While we're on the subject, is there a way to just turn it off without physical disconnection?
    Also, for kext I'm now using Kext Utility, but I don't think I have much to change in that area by now (at least not until new MacOS)

    and finally, the USB injection, that will have to wait, holiday is over :(

    And again, attaching the file for future use and other comments and improvements.

    Really?
    Your ioreg does not confirm working HDMI audio.

    You did not patch ACPI correctly.
    Read ACPI patching guide.
    Your GFX0->IGPU rename attempt is not working (look at your ioreg).

    I see... you're using the AR9565 patched kexts (not recommended).
    Your call on that...

    Is it possible that all SSDT=xx.dsl files extracted contain a reference to GFX0? as far as I understand, I need to patch every file with that reference

    Easy to answer:
    Code (Text):

    SPEEDY-NUC:origin rehabman$ grep -l GFX0 *.dsl
    DSDT.dsl
    SSDT-1.dsl
     
    Still... all static SSDTs need to be in ACPI/patched and you need correct settings in config.plist.
    You should read the ACPI patching guide.

    I've read the guide again, still not quite right.
    Code (Text):
    Omers-Air:origin komer$ grep -l GFX0 *.dsl
    DSDT.dsl
    SSDT-0.dsl
    SSDT-1.dsl
    SSDT-10.dsl
    SSDT-2.dsl
    SSDT-3x.dsl
    SSDT-4x.dsl
    SSDT-5x.dsl
    SSDT-6x.dsl
    SSDT-7x.dsl
    SSDT-8x.dsl
    SSDT-9x.dsl
    I haven't changed anything yet, my currant DSDT.aml is patched with the battery fix and ssdt.aml with the cpu management (which I'm also going to fix, right after this GPU thingy, and the SMCSensors too, forgot to deal with it)

    Followed these step to extract the files:
    Restart
    F4 at Clover menu
    Using Terminal cd to origin, coping refs.txt into it.
    running
    Code (Text):
    iasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt DSDT.aml SSDT*.aml
    Getting 11 files containing GFX0

    So far, I don't see what I'm doing wrong.

    You're doing something seriously wrong.
    That output does not correlate at all with the files you attached (ACPI/origin) in #31.
    Same goes for the files you just attached here.
    For you to investigate...

    Might have uploaded the wrong files. But here's another round, still getting the same result.

    At this point I wonder if I should reinstall minus all the tryouts and weird things I've done or not, so far I got everything working just fine, except few minor things and the GPU PM.

    Still same result as far as GFX0 references in ACPI/origin files:
    Code (Text):

    SPEEDY-NUC:origin rehabman$ grep -l GFX0 *.dsl
    DSDT.dsl
    SSDT-1.dsl
