AMD Athlon Phenom Bulldozer Piledriver APU Mountain Lion Legacy Kernel Kernel AMD Kernel

This is the result of months of development in this topic: http://www.insanelym....esting-on-amd/.

The kernel, which i'm posting here as amd_kernel, was built by Andy Vandjick, but that wouldn't be possible without the amazing work by Sinetek (who made the first SSSE3 emulator ever, enabling non FX-series CPUs to run OSX in 64-bit kernel mode), R:A:W:x86, Bronzovka (who made Lion on AMD possible) and the Voodoo Team. Many thanks to them all!

The correct boot flags to run the kernel are amd_kernel arch=x86_64. FX-series users must also add the correct busratio. The kernel is not working properly with nVidia graphics (and some ATI ones), so their users must also either add -x (safe mode) boot flag or disable GeforceGA.plugin and GLDriver.bundle in System/Library/Extensions.

This kernel will also work with 64-bit Intel CPUs that are not capable of running the vanilla kernel.

Good luck to all and please post feedback. The sources are also included for anyone wanting to build the kernel from the sources, or help improve it - there's still a lot of work to do.

This kernel worked for me.
