OS X 10.11.1 Build 15B38b adds Skylake support

Apple seeded a fourth Beta (OS X 10.11.1) to Developers and Public Beta tester, and this update (Build 15B38b) adds support for Intel Skylake processors. Here are the used board-id/model combinations that you may find interesting:

board-id: Mac-65CE76090165799A – Model: iMac17,1 (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) / Core i7 4.0GHz

board-id: Mac-B809C3757DA9BB8D – Model: iMac17,1 (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) / Core i5 3.3GHz

board-id: Mac-DB15BD556843C820 – Model: iMac17,1 (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) / Core i5 3.2GHz

Edit: iMac16,x model/board-id’s removed (Broadwell models).

Kernel support for Skylake is checked like so:

ffffff80003c477c	cmpl	$0x5e, %eax
ffffff80003c477f	jne	0xffffff80003c47b1
ffffff80003c4781	jmp	0xffffff80003c47a0
../..
ffffff80003c479b	cmpl	$0x4e, %eax
ffffff80003c479e	jne	0xffffff80003c47b1
ffffff80003c47a0	movl	$0x37fc219f, %ebx       ## imm = 0x37FC219F	// CPUFAMILY_INTEL_SKYLAKE

The previously missing power management files are now also there:

/S*/L*/E*/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/C*/P*/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/C*/Resources

Edit: Apple apparently started to use _CSS and _PSS instead of the previously used Apple specific ACSS and APSS. About time.

More importantly. There are new kexts added for graphics support:

AppleIntelSKLGraphics.kext
AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext
AppleIntelSKLGraphicsGLDriver.bundle
AppleIntelSKLGraphicsMTLDriver.bundle
AppleIntelSKLGraphicsVADriver.bundle
AppleIntelSKLGraphicsVAME.bundle

Intel10SeriesAHCI support has also been added:

Intel10SeriesAHCI

And here are some interesting snippets that I added to RevoBoot:

	#elif (TARGET_MODEL == IMAC_162)
		// Intel Core i5-5575R @ 2.8 GHz & Intel Core i5-5675R @ 3.1 GHz
		// Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200

		#define SMB_BOARD_PRODUCT	"Mac-FFE5EF870D7BA81A"
		#define EFI_MODEL_NAME		{ 'i', 'M', 'a', 'c', '1', '6', ',', '2' }
	#elif (TARGET_MODEL == IMAC_171)
		// Intel Core i5-6500 @ 3.2 GHz
		// AMD Radeon R9 M390
		// (Retina 5k, 27inch Late 2015)
		#define SMB_BIOS_VERSION	"IM171.88Z.0105.B00.1509221819"

	#else
		// Intel Core i5-6600 @ 3.3 GHz
		// AMD Radeon R9 M395
		// (Retina 5k, 27inch Late 2015)
		#define SMB_BIOS_VERSION	"IM171.88Z.0105.B00.1509221819"

		#define EFI_MODEL_NAME		{ 'i', 'M', 'a', 'c', '1', '7', ',', '1' }

Yesterday I added two new models to my blog article about Apple Serial Numbers Ending With G000-GZZZ and today Apple published a lot more so now we have 24 new iMac models listed:

GF1J – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GF1K – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GF1L – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GF1M – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GG77 – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GG7D – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GG7G – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GG79 – iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)

GG7C – iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GG7F – iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GG7H – iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)
GG78 – iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)

GG7J – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG7R – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG7N – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG7Q – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG7L – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG7T – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG7V – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG80 – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG81 – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GG82 – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GQ17 – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
GQ18 – iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)

Note: The Intel i5 (1,6HGz, 2.8GHz and 3.1GHz) are Broadwell based.

Now you have (almost) everything to setup your Intel Skylake based Hackintosh 😉

Update I renamed AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.sh to AppleIntelGraphicsFramebuffer.sh and added support for the Intel Skylake processor graphics – new version soon the be released – and here is some of the output.

Edit: The IOPCIPrimaryMatch list in AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext/C*/Info.plist does not include 0x191b.

Edit-2: The following frame buffer data is currently still inactive:

0x19020001 – Skylake Desktop GT1
0x19170001 – Skylake Desktop GT1.5
0x19120001 – Skylake Desktop GT2 (duplicated/used twice)
0x19320001 – Skylake Desktop GT4

None of these will work so there is no point of using them. Also note that 0x19120001 is used twice and I changed the second one into 0x19120003 and used it during my test runs, but whatever I did, my monitor always showed up on port 6. I can change the port number, and all the rest of the values, but I can’t seem to change the third port without breaking stuff. Pretty weird.

  1. hey Pike, any chance of you uploading the power management kexts to support skylake for me/others ? I intend to have it installed on my i7-6700k but have no mac around (I’ll have these files replace the one from 10.11 usb installer and that should allow installation)

  2. @magnifico1966, my system is like: i7-6700k, Asus Z170 Pro Gaming, Asus GTX 970 OC Strix (I will hackintosh this baby at the end of the week – no time until then, working too much)

  3. Hi Piker, i’m trying to boot El Capitan on my Z170A+6600k i5 and it shows “waiting for root device”… What you think i need to do in order to get it working?

    thanks in advance man.

      • It’s when i try to boot it to the installation process, someone from another forum said that i need :

        a. PCI to USB 2.0 (keyboard, mouse and USB installer are plugged in to this)
        b. PCIe to Sata 3 (Your System harddrive must be plugged in to this)

        What you think of this? is there another way to do it? Faking ID the sata/USB 2.0 ports?

      • Alright man, let me know anything about it, if there a possible solution besides the PCI adapters… I would apreciatte it man.

      • Nope. Sorry. Hey. If someone would carry some of the load of my shoulders… then I would have some time to document my findings, but that is not going to happen so… hang in.
