Nope, never happened to me.

Does anyone have problems with window server disconnecting and the screen going black and then reconnecting?

A manga (Blame!) from Tsutomu Nihei I used to read maaaany years ago. Then it also became my dog's name.

Anyway, I'm not sure it's working correctly as it should cause last night I made a couple of benchmarks and I had the same - if not worse - score I had with my previous ATI 4890 (...)

Even, ACL showed me R9 was performing at half the bandwidth speed than the 4890, that's obviously the way it should work.

I also installed the dmg from the "best answer post" but nothing changed.


I think I should just have to wait for my new motherboard to be delivered.

Blame73, thank you for your response. I seems that I am the only person where the 270X does NOT work out of the box :( For example I cannot even install Mavericks/Yosemite because I get a black screen (connected via DVI) when I boot the install USB thumb drive in order to install the OS. And sleep doesn't work during the install process - so I have to put in my old graphics card in order to install the OS :/


Your ConnectorsPatch didn't work either for me :( Same problem - HDMI and one DVI doesn't work (display goes to standby) and the other DVI stays black until I go to sleep and wake up again.

Can you please fix the formatting of your config.plist since it says "patchVBios" but no true/false so I don't know what you have set.


It seems that I have to start fiddling with my frame buffers again :/


edit: thanks, you just noticed that your code is messed up ;)


I remeber the patchVBios was on False (I'll fix the formatting later this morning when I'm home again)

I had a problem with the blank screen too and I just solved changing the DVI port (didn't tried via HDMI yet)


Also, try the 


don't know for sure what it does, but since it's working for me...

So I just installed Yosemite DP2 (not yet DP3) and I got the same problem again: My display goes black after boot and after computer sleep and wake, I get a picture. HDMI and the other DVI is not working. I injected the same fixes as for Mavericks but my guess is, that the strings of the frame buffer, that have to be replaced, changed and therefore, my search and replace command from clover doesn't work.
I tried to read the AMDFramebuffer.kext with that ati-personality.pl script but it doesn't seem to work properly - even after light editing.

Anyone else on Yosemite yet?

Hey VirusX,
I'm running Yosemite right now (updated to the last version via software update).

I just pugged in my brand new Sapphire R9 270X I got today and it's working fine... well, I'm waiting for my new MB and CPU and right now I stuck into my old P5B with a Q8200@3GHz, so it's not performing very well (since it's a PCIE1.1 MB), but at least is working.
I'm booting via clover and I just added this few lines to make it work:

Graphics			FBName		Futomaki		Inject					ATI						Intel						NVidia							PatchVBios				VideoPorts		2		KernelAndKextPatches			ATIConnectorsController		7000		ATIConnectorsData		00040000040300000001010112040401000400000403000000010201220505020400000014020000000103000000060600080000040200000001040011020103		ATIConnectorsPatch		00040000040300000001000012040101000800000402000000010000220502030002000004020000000100001000030604000000140200000001000011020505

Hope it helps!




Ooops: I noticed that since I modified the post via Tapatalk it messed the code up.

I'm gonna correct it once I'm home for lunch.

Change something in BIOS concerning USB.

I'm not booting from the USB stick, I got clover installed on the main HD
