[Guide] Enable Intel IGPU HDMI/DP Audio (Sandy/Ivy/Haswell/Broadwell/Skylake/Kaby Lake/Kaby Lake-R)


Staff member
Audio is an essential component of any system. Having a HDMI/DP Audio is a great pleasure on Mac. With this feature enabled, you can enjoy watching movies, shows on your big screen television or external Monitor.

The following is a guide for enabling HDMI/DP Audio for laptops.

Before using this guide, we recommend you to perform a clean installation of macOS.

The method is supported on the following.

Chipsets :
  • Sandy Bridge
  • Ivy Bridge
  • Haswell
  • Broadwell
  • Skylake
  • Kaby Lake
  • Coffee Lake
macOS/OS X versions:
  • Supports macOS/OS X versions: 10.13.x, 10.12.x, 10.11.x
Supported Vendors:
  • Intel HD Graphics
  • Any of the above chipset
  • Any of the above macOS/OS X version
  • Working Intel HD Graphics with correct VRAM and Full QE/CI
  • Patched AppleHDA

Before you start

Notes :
  • If you've used any other method such as VoodooHDA, AppleALC, or aDummyHDA, make sure to remove those files to avoid conflicts.
  • If you're using any injector, make sure to remove it.
  • AppleHDADisabler, HDAEnabler should be removed.
  • For HDMI audio, you need to inject the hda-gfx, use a patch in config.plist file for the HDMI/DP port and a valid ig-platform id.
  • For some Chipsets such as Haswell and Broadwell, renaming B0D3 to HDAU is necessary.
  • Your Graphics should be working natively with the particular OS X or macOS version and should have no issues.
  • Your Audio should be working using AppleHDA or AppleALC method. For more information, read here: https://www.elitemacx86.com/threads/a-beginners-guide-how-to-patch-applehda-for-laptops.184/
  • For unsupported HDMI Audio Device, FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext installation is required

Mount your EFI Partition
The very first step is to mount the EFI partition and make the necessary changes
Open your EFI partition and then open your DSDT

Common Patches (DSDT)
  • Rename GFX0 to IGPU
  • Rename B0D3 to HDAU
Note :
Acpi patches
  • Change HDAS to HDEF
Open your EFI partition and then open your Config.plist file with Clover Configurator.
Go to Acpi Tab then DSDT section, Find Patches and type following:
Comment: Rename HDAS to HDEF
Find* [HEX]: 48444153
Replace [HEX]: 48444546
Layout ID
  • Layout ID as per the AppleHDA
Go to Device Tab then Audio section and delete existing value if any and type your layout ID.
Under Audio section, be sure to check the ResetHDA Check Box if not checked already.

Notes :
  • The DSDT must be patched with the same layout ID.
  • Use Audio layout according to your Audio Codec and also change it while renaming B0D3.
Add Device Properties (hda-gfx)
  • Inject hda-gfx=onboard-1
Go to Add Properties section and then add the following :
Device: IntelGFX
Key: hda-gfx
Value: 6F6E626F6172642D3100
Value Type: DATA
Comment: hda-gfx=onboard-1 for HDMI audio
Device: HDA
Key: hda-gfx
Value: 6F6E626F6172642D3100
Value Type: DATA
Comment : hda-gfx=onboard-1 for HDMI audio
Device: HDA
Key: layout-id
Value: 03000000
Value Type: DATA
Comment: layout-id=3
Note :
  • Change the layout according to your Audio Codec in Device properties section, in the last patch.

Kernel and Kext Patches
  • A HDMI/DP Audio patch

Check Unsupported HDMI Audio Device
Using DPCIManager, check the Audio Device

Here's a list of unsupported HDMI Audio Device
8086:0c0c, 8086:9d70, 8086:9d71, 8086:9d74, 8086:a170, 8086:a171, 8086:a2f0, or 8086:a348

If you've any of the above device, you'll need to install FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext along with FakePCIID

  1. FakePCIID
Notes :
  • Download the latest version only.
Step 5: Installing Graphics kexts

After editing your config.plist file, the next step is to install the Graphics kexts.
You can use either terminal or any other app for installing the kexts.

Download the kexts
Extract it to your Desktop
Open terminal
sudo cp -R /Users/your user name/Desktop/FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext FakePCIID /System/Library/Extensions
