Hi all,

No idea if this info is usefull.

My second monitor on HDMI was at first not responding. I did a lot of experimenting with adding different .ketx's, changed settings in config.plist.
At a certain point my monitor showed some activity, it showed some scrambled Apple logo's, so I did more reading, experimenting and failing.

Then I stumbled in to something, that made it work.
With Clover Configurator, mount your EVI partition, open your config.plist and change (if there is a value) or else add it in SMBIOS -> Product Model under product name 14.2 (mine was 15.1) reboot. For me this did it after spending 3 evenings to get it work.

I assume the die hard Hackingtoshers already know this, but I want to share it anyway for the beginners, like I am.
