Fixes an issue in AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext so that we could use a MacPro6,1 board-id/model combination, without the usual hang with a black screen. Patching AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext
Modifies macOS to recognize NVIDIA's web drivers as platform binaries. This resolves the issue with transparent windows without content, which appear for applications that use Metal and have Library Validation enabled. Common affected applications are iBooks and Little Snitch Network Monitor, though this patch is universal and fixes them all. NVWebDriverLibValFix
Injects IOVARendererID into GPU properties (required for Shiki-based solution for non-freezing Intel and/or any discrete GPU)
For Intel HD digital audio HDMI, DP, Digital DVI (Patches connector-type DP -> HDMI)
Fixes NVIDIA GPU interface stuttering on 10.13 (official and web drivers)
Fixes the kernel panic caused by an invalid link rate reported by DPCD on some laptops with Intel IGPU.
Fixes the infinite loop on establishing Intel HDMI connections with a higher pixel clock rate on Skylake, Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake platforms.
Implements the driver support for onboard LSPCON chips to enable DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 output on some platforms with Intel IGPU.
Enforces complete modeset on non-built-in displays on Kaby Lake and newer to fix booting to black screen.
Allows non-supported cards to use HW video encoder (-radcodec)
Read FAQs and avoid asking any questions. No support is provided for the time being.
-wegdbg to enable debug printing (available in DEBUG binaries).
-wegoff to disable .
-wegbeta to enable WhateverGreen on unsupported os versions (10.15 and below are enabled by default).
-wegnoegpu to disable external GPU (or add disable-external-gpu property to IGPU).
-radvesa to disable ATI/AMD video acceleration completely.
-rad24 to enforce 24-bit display mode.
-raddvi to enable DVI transmitter correction (required for 290X, 370, etc.).
-radcodec to force the spoofed PID to be used in AMDRadeonVADriver
radpg=15 to disable several power-gating modes (see FAQ, required for Cape Verde GPUs).
agdpmod=vit9696 disables check for board-id (or add agdpmod property to external GPU).
agdpmod=pikera replaces board-id with board-ix
agdpmod=ignore disables AGDP patches (vit9696,pikera value is implicit default for external GPUs)
ngfxgl=1 boot argument (and disable-metal property) to disable Metal support on NVIDIA
ngfxcompat=1 boot argument (and force-compat property) to ignore compatibility check in NVDAStartupWeb
ngfxsubmit=0 boot argument (and disable-gfx-submit property) to disable interface stuttering fix on 10.13
gfxrst=1 to prefer drawing Apple logo at 2nd boot stage instead of framebuffer copying.
gfxrst=4 to disable framebuffer init interaction during 2nd boot stage.
igfxframe=frame to inject a dedicated framebuffer identifier into IGPU (only for TESTING purposes).
igfxsnb=0 to disable IntelAccelerator name fix for Sandy Bridge CPUs.
igfxgl=0 boot argument (and disable-metal property) to disable Metal support on Intel.
igfxpavp=1 boot argument (and igfxpavp property) to force enable PAVP output
igfxfw=2 boot argument (and igfxfw property) to force loading of Apple GuC firmware
-igfxnohdmi to disable DP to HDMI conversion patches for digital sound.
-cdfon (and enable-hdmi20 property) to enable HDMI 2.0 patches.
-igfxdump to dump IGPU framebuffer kext to /var/log/AppleIntelFramebuffer_X_Y (available in DEBUG binaries).
-igfxfbdump to dump native and patched framebuffer table to ioreg at IOService:/IOResources/WhateverGreen
igfxcflbklt=1 boot argument (and enable-cfl-backlight-fix property) to enable CFL backlight patch
applbkl=0 boot argument (and applbkl property) to disable AppleBacklight.kext patches for IGPU. In case of custom AppleBacklight profile- read here.
-igfxmlr boot argument (and enable-dpcd-max-link-rate-fix property) to apply the maximum link rate fix.
-igfxhdmidivs boot argument (and enable-hdmi-dividers-fix property) to fix the infinite loop on establishing Intel HDMI connections with a higher pixel clock rate on SKL, KBL and CFL platforms.
-igfxlspcon boot argument (and enable-lspcon-support property) to enable the driver support for onboard LSPCON chips. Read the manual
-igfxi2cdbg boot argument to enable verbose output in I2C-over-AUX transactions (only for debugging purposes).
igfxagdc=0 boot argument (disable-agdc device property) to disable AGDC.
igfxfcms=1 boot argument (complete-modeset device property) to force complete modeset on Skylake or Apple firmwares.
igfxfcmsfbs= boot argument (complete-modeset-framebuffers device property) to specify indices of connectors for which complete modeset must be enforced. Each index is a byte in a 64-bit word; for example, value 0x010203 specifies connectors 1, 2, 3. If a connector is not in the list, the driver's logic is used to determine whether complete modeset is needed. Pass -1 to disable.
igfxonln=1 boot argument (force-online device property) to force online status on all displays.
igfxonlnfbs=MASK boot argument (force-online-framebuffers device property) to specify indices of connectors for which online tatus is enforced. Format is similar to igfxfcmsfbs.
