test this kernel with fresh install (http://www.insanelym...-4-rc3-for-amd/)

 

works but same issue as mach_kernel_10_9_4_rc2 for amd V.1

 

after install these item dont work

 

system is so slugess... ( replace AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext from 10.9 that solve the slowness issue )

icloud dont work...

Safri has art effect on text...

sleep don't work (dont use it)

 

works

 

apple app store

imessage

usb 2.0 and 3.0

Lan

Sound use VoodooHDA 2.8.5

shutdown and restart

 

 

10.9.4 (myhack usb bootable drive) replace this kernel as well on USB Bootable flash drive

kernel flag -0x3000 use the system.kext that was with these kernel in to S/L/E

AMD FX 8350

ASUS M5A99FX (UEFI BIOS)

Nvidia GTX 760 4GB

As far as I know, there is no CPU power management with AMD kernels… The best I've seen is min/max frequencies through the combination of nullCPUPowerManagement + recent FakeSMC from Kozlek.

 

With some mobos, this can apparently be managed through the BIOS, so no OS X involvement.

Oh :( it is useful , but It is big the difference between CnQ on and CnQ off?  Mavericks runs smoothly than win 8.1 , i love it... but my electric bill .....

I wanna say... is there a real big difference between cool 'n quiet enabled and cool 'n quiet disable, about power consumption ? if the answer is yes i don't use niresh :(

Cool and Quiet automatically changes your cpu's voltage and multipliers on demand. For Power consumption and heat, it would be better to have it on unless you're overclocking.

cool n'quiet = frequency CPU

C1E/C6State = vcore CPU

Cool and Quiet does lower multipliers on demand, lowers vcore to match the lower multiplier, and can control fans. C1E does more than that. It shuts off cores and HT links for example.

wikipedia is bad ;)

 

my kabini :

 

cool n'quiet = frequency CPU (+/-)

C6State = vcore cpu  (+/-)

hardware monitor = fan cpu ;) ( % T°C)

I already knew this, but here are a few articles directly from AMD explaining the two. Anyone who has been into heavy AMD overclocking should know the difference, and I've been doing it for years.

I know I'm late to the party, but I want to thank everyone for all their work in keeping AMD on OS X alive. Without all that effort, I would still be running SL on nawcom's legacy kernel.

 

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 960T

 

Motherboard: ASUS M5A88-V EVO

- LAN Realtek 8111E: See below

- Audio codec non-standard ALC 892: Does NOT work using AppleHDA, Sort of working using VoodooHDA 2.8.4 installed to S/L/E
- Graphics on-board ATI Radeon HD 4250: Not working, neither QE/CI nor resolution

- ASMedia USB3: Flaky, but works well for the most part

- PS2: Works well using VoodooPS2Controller.kext installed to S/L/E

 

 

Boot loader: Chameleon 2.2svn r2377

 

Boot flags: npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 fsb=200 busratio=15 (Actually, the only flag that is required is npci=0x3000. It will boot and run without the other ones. Anyone else using these boot flags should adjust the fsb and busratio values to match their own CPU.)

 

XFX Radeon HD 5450: Running QE/CI with GraphicsEnabler=N on both 10.9.4 (patched kexts installed to S/L/E) and 10.8.4 (patch clean copies of AMDRadeonAccelerator & ATI5000Controller extracted using Pacifist from 10.8.4 Combo Update and place in S/L/E + ATI5000Injector.kext in E/E)

 

Mavericks: Running 10.9.4 on kernel 13.3

- Installer: Created USB installer with Pandora's Box, manually patched with MBR patch, replaced kernel with deekay 13.3, added VoodooPS2Controller to S/L/E and org.chameleon.Boot.plist to /Extra

Mountain Lion: Running 10.8.4 on kernel 12.5 (Originally was running 12.2, but 5450 had graphics corruption that went away with new kernel)

- Installer: Created USB installer with Pandora's Box, manual MBR patch not necessary, replaced kernel with bronya 12.5, added VoodooPS2Controller to S/L/E and org.chameleon.Boot.plist to /Extra

 

With both Mav and ML, a lot of times the Installer will encounter an error during the install. I just erased the partition and re-ran the Installer again until it was successful. Oh, and don't forget to either delete AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext or to add NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to S/L/E as necessary to get rid of the kernel panic.

 

Thanks again!

 

One more note: For some unknown reason on ML, I was having trouble installing Flash Player using the standard installer. The installer would launch and ask for a password, but then I would get a blank window with no way to proceed. I was able to get around this by downloading the "offline" installer from the following link: http://download.macr..._player_osx.dmg

 

Another update: I'm now using Mieze's kext (version 1.1.2) instead. I'm currently booting with npci=0x3000, even though her instructions say not to. Otherwise, I followed her installation instructions exactly. I will test if I can now boot w/o that bootflag later.

Update: Booting w/o npci=0x3000 causes the boot process to hang at the grey screen of death (just before loginwindow launches). So it looks like I'm stuck with it for now.

 

Yosemite update: Bronya is amazing. Installed Yosemite (10.10) to a separate partition using kernel rc2 (version 1), and it works ... sort of. Built the installer USB according to rockinron_1's tutorial in the Genius Bar, manually patched for MBR (Google to find the patch, ignore the tutorial's instructions because the paths have changed), installed Chameleon bootloader v2391, added "kext-dev-mode=1" and "-f" boot flags, added kext for PS2 keyboard, patched AMD5000Controller.kext to add Device ID, and it installs and runs.

 

There are massive problems with the graphics, and a lot of the apps don't work properly (tested Safari, iTunes, Maps). But I'm impressed that it actually runs.

I finally manage to install Montain Lion 10.8.5 on my pc:

FX-8350 16 GB RAM 1600mhz

ASUS M5A-78L-M USB3.0

NVDIA GT640 2GB DDR3

I used Niresh USB 

Working:

All most all

Not working:

Sound 

Booting i need a CD with Chamaleon 

Graphic Card only in 1080x720 no more resolution display 

Safari start to get crazy with chrome is fixed

Fans allways 100% but i think is Graphic Card Fan no PC ones...

 

How to install 10.8.5 in FX8350 or similar:

Boot in windows  and plug in the USB and go to /Extra and open org.chameleon.Boot.plist

And remplace all with this  one make by me:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"[]>
<plist version="1.0">
  <dict>
    <key>USBBusFix</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>Timeout</key>
    <string>10</string>
    <key>Graphics Mode</key>
    <string>1024x768x32</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string>root-dmg=file:///BaseSystem.dmg maxmem=3096 npci=0x2000 dmar=0</string>
  </dict>
</plist>
Save  it
Go to bios an change disk to AHCI 
Boot usb and press 2 so much times untill you see something ( Clover for my doenst work at all )
Then write amdfx -v
And let it boot and follow normal installation
 

How to install Mavericks USB AMD version:

Download usb image tool and niresh mavericks usb version

Create a booteable usb with usbbit clicking on restore and select the dmg

Depends on USB take a long time or not

Reboot the computer enter in BIOS and put in  AHCI

This is the step i am in the moment

Thanks to everyone on InsanelyMac for making this happen!

 

OS: Yosemite

After replacing / rolling back AppleACPIPowerManagement, IOPCIFamily and IOUSBFamily to Mavericks versions (and deleting some unneeded kexts that relied on them and failed to load) it didn't hang at booting to GUI (experienced spinning beach ball of death on grey screen). The only issue remaing is very long boot time 3-4 minutes, didn't time it.

 

CPU: FX-6300

Started out with FX Yosemite kernel but some apps would crash badly (Adobe Flash installer, Steam), Bronya's RC2 kernel does the trick.

 

Motherboard: Asrock Extreme3 970

Onboard LAN works with Realtek81111 driver, onboard sound with VoodooHDA, npci=0x2000, SSDT from Rampagedev website.

 

GPU: Radeon HD7850

Both DVI and HDMI work with QE/CI. HDMI audio required messing with patched AppleHDA and specifying PCI IDs in both AppleHDAEnabler and VoodooHDA so they wouldn't clash over audio devices.

 

I'm using Enoch's Chameleon fork, installation media was prepared with Pandora's box 2.0 in Mountain Lion VM.

 

What surprised me that AppStore and iMessage worked out of the box as most people have issues with that it seems.

 

Thanks for all the great work that devs do and the help that's provided around here.
