Chimera has been updated to version 2.2. The major changes in this version are the addition of new Intel integrated graphics support and two new boot keys. The first new boot key, IGPlatformID, allows for overriding the Chimera defaults for ig-platform-id on the Intel HD 3000, Intel HD 2500/4000, and the latest Intel HD 4600/5000. The other key, IGPEnabler, allows for enabling the Intel HD GPU when GraphicsEnabler=No. Chimera is recommended for all users, and will be included by default in the next MultiBeast and UniBeast releases.

Chimera v2.2 Changes:

  • Added support for Intel HD Graphics 2500
  • Added support for Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Added support for Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile
  • Added support for Intel HD Graphics 5000
  • Added new boot key IGPlatformID=[value] to allow for overriding default Intel HD Graphics Platform ID for the Intel HD Graphics 2500, 3000, 4000, 4000 Mobile, 4600, 4600 Mobile and 5000 GPUs. [value] must be 8 hexadecimal digits such as 0166000A which is the default for the HD 4000.
  • Added new boot key IGPEnabler=Yes/No to allow for Intel HD Graphics injection with GraphicsEnabler=No
Chimera is an official branch of the Chameleon open-source bootloader project.

A standalone installer is now available at tonymacx86.com/downloads. For bug reporting, feature requests, and general feedback please use the Chimera Forum.

does this mean we can now use integrated HD 2500 graphics as the main system graphics?

What makes you say that? The code for it has been in Chimera for awhile.

Hi,

Thanks for this release. Does it solve the iMessage / Facetime problem?

Regards
