Yes, I did patch the IOKit and am starting OS X (10.11.6) with "nv_spanmodepolicy = 1". What do you mean by revealing the HiDPI resolutions, is there a second command to issue beside the patch itself?
I do have 1080p60 in the list, but I had to create a 2160p60 by myself. I would like to use 1440p60 because my screen is 65 inches in size and this would give me a bit more space without reducing readability. Unfortunately there is no 2550x1440 with 60 Hz in the list, even after patching. And I am unable to create one, because either I create a scaled resolution (which in turn uses 30Hz) or I create a physical resolution but the textboxes for scaling are invisible.
I had to run this terminal command to enable HiDPI resolutions.
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true
