Is that power reading on MacOS accurate? Or is that the combined power of CPU and GPU?

Otherwise the WX4150 uses 70-80W on MacOS, but only 32-35W on Windows?
I think that this one is iStatMenus reading values issue. Because gpu port is limited to 50W, or it will do emergency power off if power consumption will be higher.
But still under MacOs when using some Adobe apps, the ram frequency drops to 300 mhz, and this happens only on discrete mode. That is some kind of driver issue i think. As wx4150 is the first my AMD for mac, i almost nothing know about it








FOR FUTURE VBIOS BUILD FOR 4170

Modules collection:

modules_Affleck-4170
modules_Aomorhid-4170
modules_Apple_560x
modules_dell-4150
modules_hp_Pegatron-4150Desktop
modules_hp_Vaughn-4150
modules_hp_Vortex-4150

///////////////////////////////




I found the reason why Catalina won’t work with HP vbioses! The reason is Memorytraininginfo and memorytraining command . The easiest way to get 4170 Affleck and Aomorhid work on Catalina is disable Memorytraininginfo, delete module and replace memorytraining command from Polaris vbios that not contains Memorytraininginfo.

The second way is use Apple 560x vbios, replace modules section with 4170, then replace Memorytraininginfo with Apple one and patch vbios header, decode it and make it same function as 4170.

Here is some proves how 4150 with same problem but dirty patched header:

Anyway latest build working fine on Catalina, because does not have memory training function

Finished 2 tools that can help to analyze atom bios tables, reposition them and even patch modules positions, or switch them off.

I can share google sheet link for testing. Later will add excel sheet export, but I am afraid that it won’t work there.

I was use different builds of that sheets before I revealed java app ATOMTableResize. But this app can’t resize vgafirmware, cannot disable modules. So that’s why I have to get back to that project to make final 4150, 4170 hp vbios builds that will work on Catalina and higher!



AS EXPECTED, EXCEL NOT SUPPORT "SORT" FORMULA. HOW TO FIX IT, I DONT KNOW...

I think I found reason why gpu has problems with initializing. Everything is easier than I thought. When system boot, the chipset loads shadow vbios into ram. If vbios is not present in system bios, then it possibly loads to address reserved for second gpu, but if this ram address is assigned to mxm, the mxm is working in address space of second gpu. But when Windows or other os books, then os load vbios from acpi or directly from mxm. Then possibly those registers are reassigning. But in MacOS, they are stays wrong. And acpi powermanagment working wrong.

NEW TESTING BUILD FOR WX 4170
(Aomorhid)
(Zbook G5)




Beta testing Aomorhid builds. For Zbook G5


Deleted memory traininginfo data
Replaced memory training command
Replaced EnableGraphSurfaces command
Replaced EnableHW_IconCursor command
Replaced MC_InitParameter_AdjustARB_SEQ data
Patched Data_Object_Info_Aomorhid-patched data


Rebuild to structure of Crane\Pegatron, so there is nothing to patch anymore.


Everything other is 100% vanila.


New builds are here, as i cant to modify old posts on TechpowerUp



Attachment is a second build of WX4170 (not tested in discrete)
- Aomorhid-nomemtrain-02-Connectors_V2-PatchedConnectors.rom.zip - Should work on discrete mode.

FAN SPEED, GPU POWER MANAGEMENT, POST ERRORS PROBLEMS


The method to dump memory, and other EFI info using EFISHELL64.
The idea is upload vbios of WX4150 into address C0000, to make it working in right space, as on G3 at address C0000 is empty space. So there is to possible suggestions:
1. Unsupported Vbios is located as PEG0, and not as GFX0 at address C000 + 65536 (Hex 1000) = d0000
2. Hp block shadowing of vbios on MXM as requires injection from system bios.
= Anyway Gpu are not initialized at boot fully, so when Windows boots, the MXM reinitialized for vbios reading and as results problems with Pci host ram addressing, some drivers failing to load

// it seems like RAM used for that task is limited to 32 megabytes, 33 554 432 Bytes, Hex numeral: 2000000.

So to dump whole ram need next command: dmem 0 2000000 > dmemdump.log
It will take 10-20 minutes. Some variables could change during logging




EFI RESEARCH ARTICLES
Moderators, please don’t delete those links, they are important for research:




What I have done?:
map (find your File System)
map FS0 (map propper FAT32 FS)
FS0: (enter file system)
CD (LS as in mac)
devices >devices.txt
devtree > devtree.txt
dmem 0 350000 > dmem0000to350000.txt (i dont know how to dump as HEX)
drivers > drivers.txt
memmap > memmap.txt
pci > pci.txt

And results:
(devices.txt)
(devtree.txt)
(dmem>0000to350000.txt)
(drivers.txt)
(memmap.txt)
(pci.txt)




THEORY:
After series of dumps of dmem, i cant find WX4150 shadowed rom. So that is clear, that if rom is missing, then gpu executed its own rom (SPI), but system have no access to work with GPU on low level hardware. So that's why everything onboard will not response to gpu, as there is no GPU present for chipset. On the other hand, when OS loads, it load vbios to registers / IO Registry, and only then the OS start to communicate with GPU, but fan, power management of GPU s missing, that's why if non supported GPU is used, than we have that bugs. Going forward: to control fan speed, GPU send data through SMBUS to EC controller. The controller read data and control fan. But possibly EC controller doesn't receive any data but recieve GPU sel gpio pin and start to wait data. Thats is why laptop POSTing GPU error. Because GPU present, but it cant initialize!

Awesome short tutorial by @nikey22 about how to dump ACPI shadow vbios here:

Post in thread '2011 iMac Graphics Card Upgrade'
https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/2011-imac-graphics-card-upgrade.1596614/post-30130169

I will test it soon with zbook. If not supported vbios is there, then it will change the way of research!

Thank you for your research!

Excellent work @bigguygeo and @hugodlc

I wonder if HP has security against viewing anything in the ACPI segments. Hopefully your unsupported bios is there. Show me full log of device handles, it should be about 2 pages.
Also, try dumping something irrelevant just to see what is present.

Code:

Yeah, mine vbios from mxm also is in VCTF acpi table as hex. And that’s a poof that vbios is load correct, even if that is not in system bios. So definitely the problem of errors is smbus data of mxm. As smbus signaling of data lanes is 2.1v for One and 0.8v for zeros, it’s easy to check if smbus is working, using red led, as it operates with 2.1-2.4v. If I will get blinks, then the smbus signals are working. And initializing problem is problem of EC firmware. And it’s only for mine scenario of unsupported gpu by system.

Anyway my unsupported gpu opening curtain to deeper research.

Clover also can dump that acpi. But clover inject pci spi to ioregistry that’s is maybe not an issue, but developers concept. Anyway the clover or OpenCore could add option to read vbios from shadow ram, or from acpi tables or from pci spi. That’s doesn’t matter why they done that, but vctf table could be patched for Windows usage for testing of discrete without flashing the rom.

MUX ICs. Better look. Trying to map track GPIO GPU_SEL
ZbookG315Motherboard_Muxes.jpg


For some reason the motherboard does not have any dp to hdmi port converting IC, so possibly hdmi is connected to thunderbolt controller And it converts signals. I tried to beeping with multimeter but can’t get any results. But DP to VGA IC is beeping fine from mxm to mux, from mux to converter and from converter to d-sub connector.

The next stage is to find GPIO of mux mossfet at EC IC

The smd K72 datasheet
B956F3CA-1D2E-4E04-8A45-950C09996568.jpeg

I spend some time on mapping traces of muxes, but the scheme of connections are really strange: those two transistors which switch to mux ways are connected together. The source are grounded, the gate are connected together too. So if the gate will open, then it will be open simultaneously for eDP to mxm and other ports to mxm. But mode bios graphics: hybrid is making all ports connected to mxm, but eDP to eDP, which is impossible with the way of provided electrical design. Weird...

Okay. Now let’s focus on thermal data. The gpu has three ways to monitor thermal data: with drivers via pci device; smbus with direct signals to EC bus, with ACPI.
81CFC83A-19B4-4B46-95C1-40608C98E5D5.jpeg

The smbus Polaris 11 address is 0x40,41,42,43. The switch between different addresses is made with two resistors pads. And four variations. As I don’t have access to mxm pcb, I cannot confirm that. And to find this hex address with reverse of EC firmware is also little bit insane idea, so will better look inside g3, g4 acpi to find the table responsible for control EC acpi method.

As I understand, the EC controller has the address mapping with ram and can have access to data of ports through preallocated memory for this operations.

Vbios data for research of unknown data in the header:

Screen Shot 2021-08-01 at 01.45.38.png
Click to expand...

The 6770 the last GPU vbios with that short data which located starting from offset to BIOS boot up message to BIOS boot up message itself, the next 7770 gpu has extended data. Maybe because the most systems became the uEFI, so efi driver was need more information to work with gpu.

i think that this data is for PCI host, that contain Pci dev id, ssid, vendorid, addresses, pci expansion revision, etc. Maybe that is something related to execution of firmware.


included files:
That`s possibly SSID coded (3Bytes)

Screen Shot 2021-08-01 at 14.11.04.png

040B (0B04) vs D580 (80D5)


I think that its almost enough data to rebuild header of vbios for new, hope the most stable and final build

@hugodlc, @nikey22 have an idea how to find the principle where to cut data to get full access to data hidden there?



The best correctly binary converter:

I would like to recommend add FFh byte if the Hex starts from 00, otherwise this zero will be lost, look at demo:
1628091527348.png

1628091564865.png

The One and half bytes are lost


IF FF Is Used:

Good news!
Finally hack unknown part of header, decode it and patch, then code it back. The method explained in my 4150 for Zbook G3 theme at techpowerup.

So, I done the fully new build that is based on 560x header with patching and vgafirmware but with vortex vbios and parser + connectors patch + Apple memory training. And build is working fine with discrete mode. Stunning stable then ever before on such extreme hybrid vbios. But this means that with this method is possible to build 4170 vbios that will be almost fully vanilla and will work on discrete mode!!!

Also I recorded extended tutorial on how this was done! I will edit it next week. Two hours of work on new build!

This means that soon I will finish vbios builds project. So the last part is to solve thermal readings for fan control.

Okay, let's see what the bios looks like there!

The EC dump after update and Main bios dump

(Sorry I am not providing platform bios sharing)

That means, that when update process was successful, then update volumes shares between those two spi ICs.
Comparison is simple: to compare update bios with content of flash dumps.

Screen Shot 2021-08-13 at 16.32.25.png



01-Padding_Non-empty_Padding0_EC_dump
Contain JFIF image and RSA signature.

01-Padding_Non-empty_Padding0_EC_dump AND 01-Padding_Non-empty_Padding_Update AND 01-Padding_Non-empty_Padding_BiosDump - contain same RSA signature
That mean that those GRAY VOLUMES ARE NOT SIGNATURE PROTECTED!!! PROTECTION HAS ONLY GREEN AND YELLOW VOLUMES. ME region also is not protected!


So EC firmware are editable!

I suppose that gop rom is efi compressed gop driver. How to find out how efi compressed image mask look like?

Example: if Apple gop driver is compressed inside of vbios second rom, then it’s possible to decompress it and even build gop rom that is enabling boot screen for any gpu (amd) !?

Finally I got the key to GOP! I was right! It’s a compressed driver! Now I can create a GOP to any amd gpu and of course for Apple style gop with boot screen!


I have successfully get supported GPUS by Apple:

Working on BaffinM Support For iMac 2011

Thats why I always saying: begin from supported stuff to make working unsupported!

Here Is Apple GOP for native GPU. As newer iMacs are not MXM, the same code is located at bios!
Solution: Create GOP with knowledge of HD6XXX GOP and based on new official release or from any laptop that support your GPU ;-)


Also i have found iMac GOP Framebuffer For Baffin, later will try to build fully working Rom!
The problem here is simple: 560X rom which was used for building vbios is not supported by drivers i have. So i need to redesign vbios again with Radeon Pro 560 o_O

MUX ICs. Better look. Trying to map track GPIO GPU_SEL
View attachment 210399

For some reason the motherboard does not have any dp to hdmi port converting IC, so possibly hdmi is connected to thunderbolt controller And it converts signals. I tried to beeping with multimeter but can’t get any results. But DP to VGA IC is beeping fine from mxm to mux, from mux to converter and from converter to d-sub connector.

The next stage is to find GPIO of mux mossfet at EC IC

The smd K72 datasheet
View attachment 210414

I spend some time on mapping traces of muxes, but the scheme of connections are really strange: those two transistors which switch to mux ways are connected together. The source are grounded, the gate are connected together too. So if the gate will open, then it will be open simultaneously for eDP to mxm and other ports to mxm. But mode bios graphics: hybrid is making all ports connected to mxm, but eDP to eDP, which is impossible with the way of provided electrical design. Weird...
Okay, i ve made some testing. And here is results:
On smd mosfet, pin GATE = 3.3V. On SIGNAL Pin = 0v, That means, that GATE is 0v too. So Laptop is Booting default to IGPU.
IGPU is A channel and on SELECT pin of MUX, means that is LOW logic switch.

Screen Shot 2021-08-21 at 20.38.48.png
So if on Signal comes signal, then Discrete graphics (B chanell) will work!

After covering SMBus data lane, confirm that SMBus is not responsible to thermal reading.
So thermal readings are made from PECI

Hi! What do you mean solution?

On zbook g3 vbioses are working except fan controller, mux controller, initialization of gpu in preboot environment, random hotplug glitches and glitchy brightness control of gpu brightness pwm pin. I think that most of this glitches are acpi related or EC firmware. EC firmware is protected by 1 rsa 256 bytes key. Need to capture the spi boot traffic to find out who is checking the EC signature to unlock the firmware from security check. Then it will be possible to get patching. Hp SureStart is good thing at hp laptops, but is the bad if non stock modding wanted. I’ve done some research of SureStart and the low level of the security chain can be patched, but need better skills for that.

For example muxes for external b channel output can be occupied by external graphics, but outputs not working before gpu will reinitialized...

Confirm, that one is WORKING!!!
Solves some noise on white color at bios ui and efishell64 now working on edp display only.

Based on GOP of zbook G4, anyway still need patch initialization of gpu

Confirm that smbus is reporting temperature from gpu, also that is used for powermanagment and that’s the reason why g3 is so glitchy. Maybe it can be solved by Acpi workaround

P.s. never do that trick, I almost brick EC controller, was required for extreme reanimation of cmos and EC....

Question: how does opensource driver recognize the smbus data from gpu? Maybe all Id bytes are stored there and that will help to analyze acpis?
