Just throwing this out there, is it possible that this can be done without the usage of the edid chip? While tracing and marking wires on the LCD cable i intend to use i noticed it did not even contain wires linked to the correct pins to read the edid info. I know most windows based computers if unable to read the info will report it as a generic monitor, but it will still work. of course when apple gets involved you can imagine they hard coded something into the firmware to allow only certain panels, though i cant find anything to confirm this.
