Thanks, Simon70
i enable hardware acceleration and sidecar start working.

Installs Lilu.kext and IntelGraphicsFixup.kext in /Library/Extensions. Adds the following to Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist: ig-platform-id=0x59120000.

I'm glad to know it...:thumbup:

I have Sidecar working in Haswell, the only thing is that the "streaming" has not a really beautiful quality (I've read that h.265 with HD4600 do not work very well...)

Based on results I've seen and testing, Sidecar requires an SMBIOS with an iGPU enabled. If it's an SMBIOS that has a T2 chip, sidecar will just have a black screen. I've heard that sidecar works on the hackintosh subreddit for iMacPro1,1 and MacPro7,1 but I haven't been able to get it to work. If someone figures it out I'm all ears :)

Could you post more details on your config, maybe provide EFI folder? Thanks in advance.

You can use that:
I dont have an Ipad to test but Sidecar pref is avail for my Broadwell laptop by this patch http://dev.zeppel.eu/luca/SidecarCorePatch.git

That is the more stable situation that I found...

My tests:

iMac Pro1,1 do not work (black screen due T2).
iMac 17.X and upper... Work with IGPU enabled, but I cannot use Netflix or Prime video.
Mac Pro 6,1 work with patch without IGPU.

So I changed my configuration to Mac Pro. The only thing is the bad quality streaming "compression" :(

No WhateverGreen (I will try with it).

sidecar has partially worked in my case, with some strange behaviour.. it was not working at the start.. but then, I enabled my internal GPU from auto to enable.. it worked.. by doing so, it actually make my Apple TV app's sound become audible, but not watchable...

anyone has any idea on this ?

What do you use instead of whatevergreen?

Hello,
That's the same for me: iMac Pro only shows a black screen, even the pencil is correctly reconized.
The patch works with MacPro 6,1
And I have an old configuration: CPU 4820K (Ivy Bridge) and X79 mobo. Graphic card more recent: RX 570
I think this is the reason why the (relatively) bad streaming connection, the Ivy Bridge CPU cannot decode HEVC properly.
