Well at least we narrowed it down to iGPU/monitor related

I would still disable CSM, but leave my EFI release untouched
Try this, it's my config but it includes edid override
IT WORKED!

I added the 4k config to your files, left everything untouched, booted with full igpu acceleration!

Thank you!

Now. Anything else you'd recommend I tweak up on it? Still think disable CSM?

ALRIGHT! I was nearing giving up helping you lol
Can you check if your display is running @ 60hz, other people have gotten it to work but only with 48hz
To check and change goto System pref/displays/ option + Scaled/check Show low resolution mode
Disable CSM is a good idea for most hacks, I do recommend that.

Yes, it's 48hz. Weird. No way around that to get it to 60?
Not seeing the CSM option - in the config.plist?

Not that I have seen as I researched to make that config for you this is a pretty common thing and no-one has figured it. If you want to do testing, I do have some ideas. I'm pretty confident we can figure this out over time. Got some stuff to do maybe in a few hours I'll post some test configs.

Wanted to clear up one thing, so to install you had to remove the framebuffer completely? I wonder with the patched edid it would have went through. Maybe that was @saschabo had same issue, buddy check the config a pages back I posted that worked for Zacharybinx34.

Yeah, I'm down for testing for sure!

As far as disabling CSM, where would you recommend I do that?
