Hi Rehabman -
Hey brother, 1st things 1st, thank you so much for the work you do on this project. It has helped more folks than you know, and I for one am very appreciate! I have been following and using your builds since day one when it was all less automated. Great job on this btw.
I have more of a general technical question rather than a problem-reporting issue.
Just upgraded to High Sierra 13.6.02 on my Envy 17t J series (per my profile)
All went well and repositories are working well, and as it was happening with my built in HD4600 I followed the threads about scrambled graphics at login and your advice to use Legacy/CSM. (I try to do my homework so I never have to bug you)
That works - but I was just wondering why that's needed in this case of High Sierra - when on Sierra and previous it was not? (on previous OS's I had to switch to legacy during install, but once the final config.plist was installed I could go back to non-legacy and graphics were fine).
I am assuming there is something different about HS which I am not aware of - something they changed?
I do like running with legacy off - so I actually prefer to just go to login and do the quick power button tap/screen black/ and then on and it clears it up.
Anyway - was just curious about what's different with this one - (and why the power off/on clears it up??).
You are a busy guy - so no hurry on this question my friend. This is more of thirst for the technical knowledge about what's going on there - and, why power off/power on button clears that up, that's all.
As always your efforts are much appreciated brother Rehabman.
Best Regards and thank you,
Legacy/CSM generally needed as it initializes the hardware more completely, more like macOS/OS X expects.
