This tutorial will show you how to enable native audio from your GPU (via HDMI or DP) and keep using VoodooHDA for onboard audio (headset jack and microphone input).

Have a working GPU
- Webdrivers installed for Nvidia GPUs (Series 7xx and +)
- Lilu.kext + WhateverGreen.kext installed for AMD GPUs (if applicable : http://forum.amd-osx.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2976)
- Have working audio with VoodooHDA.kext. (Check under About this Mac -> System report -> Audio. You should see Manufacturer: Voodoo for at least one device listed ).

1. Locate VoodooHDA.kext in one of the following path:
EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.xx or Other (xx is your MacOs version) NOTE : use Clover Configurator (Google it) to MOUNT your EFI folder.

Note : If you see it in more than one place, keep only one copy under System/Library/Extensions/ or EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.xx or Other. Delete the others.

2. Right click on VoodooHDA.kext and click on Show Package Contents. Under Contents/, open info.plist with PlistEditorPro
Code: Select all
3. Open DPCIManager.
Code: Select all
Look under the Audio Device. Locate the onboard audio controller (usually Realtek). You will see Realtek xxxxx under Codec Name (xxxxx = ALC885/887/888/889/891/892/1150/Unknown)
In my case the device is 0x10221457. The first 4 digits after 0x are the VendorID. The following 4 digits are the Product ID.

4. Back in PlistEditor Pro, expand IOKitPersonalities and VoodooHDA. Replace IOPCIClassMatch with IOPCIPrimaryMatch.
Replace 0x04020000&0xfffe0000 with 0x(ProductID)(VendorID). In my case 0x14571022.
Save the modifications.

5. If VoodooHDA.kext is under System/Library/Extensions/, rebuild cache by opening KextUtility
Code: Select all

6. Reboot your PC. Enjoy
