i can't tell if you're not getting signal at all, or just in OFW.

if the former, and you're using a B1 unit (and i assume you are), then
there's a good chance that the cable isn't making contact properly. 
the jack is mounted just a little too far back from the edge of the
motherboard, and so too far from the outside of the laptop.  it's only
off by a millimeter or so -- if you don't mind trimming just a bit of
the rubber encapsulation from around the metal part of the micro-hdmi
plug, it should help.   (fixed on C1 units)

if the latter, and you have signal in OFW but not linux, be sure your
upgrade to q7b09 was successful.  linux hdmi won't work without it.
