    AMD Radeon GPU pack is a post-installation tool specifically designed for Clover boot loader. The tool contains patches and injectors for various AMD Radeon graphic cards, but also additional plugins for MacPro3,1 and MacPro6,1 SMBIOS specifications and Sandy Bridge CPU-s. How it works: The tool will add just a few FB code lines for proper GPU activation in Clover config.plist file (ATI Connectors Data, ATI Connectors Patch & ATI Connectors Controller). • Be advised that patches depend on card manufacturers. • The list of patches and injectors are based on certain GPU models and extracted ROM files from them. • Injectors from this tool will work on most models, but not on all of them. • That’s because certain GPU cards from the same series using the slightly different firmware. Injectors & patches: AMD Radeon HD 6450 (device id - 0x6779) AMD Radeon HD 6790 (device id - 0x673E) AMD Radeon HD 6850 (device id - 0x6739) AMD Radeon HD 6870 (device id - 0x6738) AMD Radeon HD 7730 (device id - 0x6837) AMD Radeon HD 7870 (device id - 0x6818) AMD Radeon R9 270 (device id - 0x6811) AMD Radeon R9 270X (device id - 0x6810) AMD Radeon R9 280X (device id - 0x6798) AMD Radeon R9 290X (device id - 0x67B0)

    AMD Radeon HD 8250 Driver/Kext

    Hey everyone! I'm new to hackintoshing, so please excuse my lack of knowledge! I decided to hackintosh my HP laptop today and got OS X 10.10 installed. I have many problems with my install, but my number one priority is to get my GPU working properly (Not really enjoying the 1024x768 resolution right now). I have a AMD Radeon HD 8250 GPU in my laptop. I've tried to look all over these forums and Google to try and find a kext for it. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction on where to get a kext that works with my GPU. Thanks! Nick

    Medion Akoya E1315

    In the Netbook compatibility list, the Medion Akoya E1315 is listed (http://www.mymacnetbook.com/compatibility-chart/) But I cant find any information on how to install OSX on this netbook. Does anyone have some information about this for me? I can buy a used Medion Akoya E1315, but I would like to know if it runs OSX before I purchase it. Here are some systems specs: - AMD Sempron 210U - Radeon Mobility X1250 - 1366x768 (WXGA Wide) (more information: http://nl.hardware.info/productinfo/86746/medion-akoya-e1315#tab:specificaties http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/244759/medion-akoya-e1315.html#tab:info )
  4. First, I´m new here and hope you could help me. I´m using 10.8.2 on my Notebook (see HackBook in my signature) with working graphics. I have resolution change and QE/CI, but openGL applications crash. I need to update my Notebook from 10.8.2 to 10.9 or 10.10 because of new iWork Apps. I installed it and everything works correctly except graphics. I have bad resolution and no QE/CI. Under 10.8.2 i used kexts from this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285394-guide-acer-aspire-5738g-ati-version-mountain-lion-1082-possible-troubleshootings/ But I use Clover as bootloader because of iMessage. Of course, under Mavericks or Yosemite the kexts from 10.8.2 are not working. I tried to make my own ATI framebuffer with this guides: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/273937-guide-getting-xfx-hd6850-connectors-to-work/ and http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/252061-mobility-radeon-hd-4650full-resolution-with-qe-ci-working-on-internal-lvds-screen/ but without luck. I got everytime black or white screens. In Clover I use Load VBios; Inject ATI; Inject EDID; AtiFramebuffer: Shrike; VRAM: 512. What I know from my VBios (extracted with AIDA64 under Windows; decoded with radeon bios decode and redsock bios decoder): Sense IDs: Transmitter: Encoder: LVDS: 07 12 04 VGA: 01 00 10 HDMI: 02 10 00 My Device ID is 9553. I tried this framebuffer: 02000000 40000000 0901 0000 12 04 00 07 10000000 10000000 0001 0000 00 10 01 01 00080000 00020000 0001 0000 10 00 02 02 I also tried this ControlFlag part at LVDS: 00010000 What is wrong there? I also tried to extract the frame buffer from 10.8.2 kexts, but there is Peregrine used an in the ati_personality.pl output is no Peregrine. Please help me to make my graphics work with QE/CI and full resolution! I need the LVDS and the VGA connector. A working HDMI would be nice but is not so important. Thanks! PS: My Mavericks install app is 10.9.4, so i couldn't install an earlier version. PPS: I couldn´t attach my VBIOS, why?
  5. Introduction: After seeing a lot of people having trouble getting the Radeon HD5450 working with Mavericks, I decided to make a guide. The card works perfectly without any graphics enabler as long as the proper device ids are in place. Guides made for Mountain Lion are obsolete because Apple changed the kext names. --- The are two ways to get the HD5450 to work properly in Mavericks: 1- Injecting a compatible fake-id (in this case, 68E01002) via DSDT. This has the advantage of using Apple's stock kexts and thus no need to re-patch kexts with every system update. 2- Adding your specific device-id to the appropriate kexts. This is probably easier, but you'll have to redo it everytime you update the system. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1- Inject a compatible fake-id via DSDT. (Recommended if you have the skills) All you need is to add the following code in the appropriate location in your DSDT (usually under PEG0, PEGP, or P0P1). PS. With this method you *must* use the original unmodified kexts. Device (GFX0) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }) } Return (Package () { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0xE0, 0x68, 0x00, 0x00 }, "ATY,DeviceID", Buffer (0x02) { 0xE0, 0x68 }, "vendor-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x02, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00 }, "ATY,VendorID", Buffer (0x02) { 0x02, 0x10 }, "AAPL,slot-name", Buffer (0x07) { "Slot-1" }, "@0,AAPL,boot-display", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 } }) } } 2- Add the device id of your GPU to the appropriate kexts. Add your device-id to the cedar section of the AMDRadeonX3000.kext and anywhere in the AMD5000Controller.kext - Go to /System/Library/Extensions/ - Copy AMDRadeonX3000.kext and AMD5000Controller.kext to your desktop - Right click on the AMD5000Controller.kext and click show contents. - Open the info.plist (using TextEdit or any plist editor) - Find the IOPCIMatch key and you'll see many device-ids - Change any of those device-ids with yours (eg. 68981002 -> 68F91002) - Save (make sure you don't change file extension) - Right click on the AMDRadeonX3000.kext and click show contents. - Open info.plist - Find the AMDCedarGraphicsAccelerator - Under IOPCIMatch, change 68E01002 to 68F91002 - Save Use Kext Wizard to reinstall the modified kexts. =============================================================================================================== Further Considerations: 1- Power Management a- I use MacPro3,1 smbios to avoid loading AGPM and my temperature and performance are very acceptable. b- You can experiment with different smbios (mainly iMac11,2 and 11,1) which will load AGPM. 2- Framebuffers: a- You can either use the Eulemur or the Generic framebuffer. My tests show no performance difference. b- Eulemur breaks sleep with DVI and HDMI monitors. VGA works fine though! c- Clover and Chameleon will automatically set framebuffer to Eulemur so I strongly recommend you disable the graphics injector features. 3- VESA modes (aka. boot resolution) a- Chameleon's resolution module can patch the vbios and give you full resolution during boot. b- Clover's built-in vbios patcher works perfectly too. c- VGA does not work in either case. The bootloader fails to read the EDID to obtain the optimal resolution. 4- Clover: a- Clover's graphics injector has the ability to inject a fake id b- As stated before, the injector automatically set framebuffer to Eulemur and thus breaks sleep.
  6. I spent the passed few days working on installing Yosemite on my PC rig and finally succeeded this morning! However... My graphics card is not working. The screen is low resolution and there's lots of image tearing. I looked around and couldn't find many details on my specific card... So I'm wondering if you guys here could take a look at tell me if it's capable of running on Yosemite, and if so, how I would make it work? This is my exact card: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-11216-02-20G/dp/B00FLMKI9A I would appreciate any help regarding this! Thanks!
  7. Hi, I hope someone can help me as I'm having some issues installing OSX on my computer. Now I did expect problems as it's an AMD so it's not supported by an means of the imagination. But everytime I manage to install OSX using some guide or another I get past the installer and formatting the HDD but then it sticks on a black screen after the Apple Logo on 1st boot. After this issue I managed to work around it using the boot flags "-x -f -v GraphicsEnabler=No" which worked once and then stopped. Someone recommended I use -x and -v only but that stopped at IOBluetoothHCIControler. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  8. I made new kext as an addition to HWSensors v3.3. Compatibility with OS 10.6 - 10.10 Currently it show only CPU temperature. May be later I make voltage and frequencies. Voluntaries welcomed. I am not sure with kozlek's project compatibility. Test with precations. (kozlek's version is not newer. It is a branch with own enumeration) Manual testing without installation: sudo -s chown -R root:wheel ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext chmod -R 755 ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext kextutil -v ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext This kext v1.0 AmdCPUMonitor.kext.zip Other files in the project (don't install all of them! For example you don't need IntelCPUMonitor) FakeSMC_plugins_746.zip New FakeSMC with Illumination version in System Profiler and no warnings in kernel.log FakeSMC.kext_Illumination.zip Minimum set includes FakeSMC+HWInfo Recommended installation (I have no installer so I propose you will use Terminal.app) sudo -s cp -r -v ~/Downloads/HWSensors/AmdCPUMonitor.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ and so on for all kexts that will have a sense for you ACPIMonitor.kext - for devices in DSDT. Only for advanced users! AmdCPUMonitor.kext - temperature for AMD CPU Andigilog.kext - for andigilog chip. Found on some Intel motherboard AnalogDevices.kext - for chips like ADT7470-7475 F718x.kext - for Fintek chip FakeSMC.kext - obligatory for any Hackintosh GeforceSensor.kext - for new NVidia Geforce cards HWInfo.kext - if you use Clover bootloader ICHSMBus.kext - an addition for Andigilog.kext IntelCPUMonitor.kext - temperature, voltage and frequencies for Intel CPU up to Haswell ITEIT87x.kext - for ITE chip, found on most Gigabyte motherboards NuvotonNCT677x.kext - for Nuvotone chip, found on new ASUS motherboards NVClockX.kext - for old NVidia cards PC8739x.kext - for NSC chip, found on Dell Inspiron only RadeonMonitor.kext - for Radeon videocard HD4000+ W836x.kext - for Winbond chips found on old ASUS motherboards X3100.kext - for Intel X3100 (GM965 chip) Monitor application to be used HWMonitor.app_731.zip New version andigilog.kext supports EMC6D103 chip. Advantages: - no spam in system.log - CPU usage only 0.1% - no panics - supported wide range of chips. Sources are available here https://www.assembla.com/code/fakesmc/subversion/nodes/738/HWSensors
  9. [AMD] 10.7.3 Guide - Experimental Only Guide Revision 003 - 20042012 Written by Devout CHANGES are in Green. Introduction Welcome to the tutorial to get your 10.7.3 running. Before we start, I'd like to make it clear that this tutorial is based on a kernel that is still being developed, and future changes to the tutorial will occur. Additionally, not everything works right now so you'll just have to see if your machine is supported and that you want to see if it's capable of running Lion. Please do not install this if you're planning to use the machine a lot, as there are still problems with applications crashing, and I don't want you to be frustrated. Use my Snow Leopard Guide if you need a reliable machine (link in FAQ). It's currently impossible to install Lion using your AMD machine, unless if it's a distribution. Please use Methods 1 to 3, depending on what access of hardware you have. Additionally, these range from being easy (1) to hard (3). The Retail Lion installation requires an Intel processor, and you won't be able to bypass this on an AMD machine, hence you might need to use Methods 2 or 3. Installation - Setup Method 1 - Easy Required: 10.7.3 DMG from Mac App Store + Existing Intel Hackintosh or Mac Hardware Using your exisiting Intel hackintosh machine running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 + or real Macintosh hardware, Install 10.7.3 Retail DMG to an external harddrive OR take your your exisiting hard drive and connect it to your machine using an external exclosure if needed. Once it's installed successfully move on to STEP 1. (Follow directly, don't restart, reboot). Method 2 - Moderate Required: iATKOS L2, ShowAllFiles, Existing Snow Leopard Using your existing AMD Machine running Snow Leopard. Mount iATKOS L2 DMG, and let it verify. Once verified, you'll need to ShowAllFiles, before you can see the contents of the DMG. Once ShowAllFiles has been enabled, open the DMG. Locate: System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mkpg and open the file. This is the Lion Installer, continue till you can customize the install. Make sure you select the correct Installation Harddrive, as you need to be careful you're not reinstalling over Snow Leopard or other important partitions. Customize the installation, however you like. Not much of this will matter, leave the default selected items. Additionally you can untick Bootloader, if you want it to be a bootable USB (Scroll down for this). Install any network/sound drivers you need. Let the installation continue and install, let it finish, and you'll have Lion installed. Once it's successfully installed move on to STEP 1. (Follow directly, don't restart, reboot). Method 3 - Hard Required: iATKOS L2, iHazard 10.6.2, ShowAllFiles, Existing Snow Leopard Download VirtualBox https://www.virtualbox.org/, and install. Download iHazard 10.6.2 ISO. Create a VirtualBox Profile and configure profile, making sure you untick Special EFI, and then load iHazard 10 6 2 ISO. Run the Virtual Profile you created and install 10.6.2. Once successfully Installed, restart. Try and run Snow Leopard with the following Bootflags: -v arch=i386 If it works, proceed. (If not, reply to topic). Remove iHazard 10.6.2 ISO from the Virtual Profile. Attach iATKOS L2 DMG to the Virtual Profile, and open it up from within Snow Leopard. iATKOS should come up. You'll need to ShowAllFiles, before you can see the contents of the iATKOS. Once ShowAllFiles has been enabled, open iATKOS. Locate: System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mkpg and open the file. This is the Lion Installer, continue till you can customize the install. Make sure you select the correct Installation Harddrive, as you need to be careful you're not reinstalling over Snow Leopard or other important partitions. Customize the installation, however you like. Not much of this will matter, leave the default selected items. Additionally you can untick Bootloader, if you want it to be a bootable USB (Click here for that). Install any network/sound drivers you need. Let the installation continue and install, let it finish, and you'll have Lion installed. Once it's successfully installed move on to STEP 1. (Follow directly, don't restart, reboot). STEP 1: If you've enabled ShowAllFiles yet, do so now. Open the root of the freshly Installed Lion. Replace the hidden (but shown up) mach_kernel with the one from here. (http://www.osx86.net...md!!!!!!!!.html) (Use V4). STEP 2: Install Chameleon using Chameleon Wizard on the harddrive. Additionally, you can choose to install this on a USB stick so you have a bootable USB. STEP 3: Reboot and configure your BIOS and make sure the drive that the partition is on is set as AHCI. Reboot to save your BIOS settings and you should be in Chameleon. (If you created a bootable USB with Chameleon, make sure you use Boot Priorty for your USB to load before Hard drive or press F8 (button varies), to boot the USB directly first). Type in the bootflags -legacy -v arch=i386 npci=0x3000 Step 4: It should load, and you'll be greeted with the Welcome Screen. You've now got a running machine of Lion! Proceed to install graphical, wireless and sound drivers if they're not already working. (If you used iATKOS L2, upgrade to 10.7.3 through combo updater and then replace mach_kernel and finder again, or you'll need to use another Mac or MacDrive to replace these files). Confirm your motherboard processor! BY REPLYING! CONFIRMED motherboards + processors list Motherboards Asus M2N32-SLI Asus M2N68 AM-SE2 Asus M4785TD-M EVO Asus M5A78L-M LX v2 AsRock N68-S3 MSI 870A-G46 Processors AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition AMD Phenom II X3 450 Black Edition AMD Phenom II X4 955 AMD Athlon II X2 250 AMD Athlon II X2 5400+ BE AMD Athlon II X2 7550 AMD Athlon II x4 640 FAQ. Q. Do I need to replace mach_kernel if I update Lion? Yes, you'll need to do this if you're coming from iATKOS 10.7.2 to 10.7.3. You'll need to do it for future updates as well as 10.7.3. Q. Is it possible to replace mach_kernel and finder in Windows? Yes, with MacDrive. Q. I get stuck at "AppleUSBOHCI::CheckSleepCapability - OHCI Controller will be unloaded across sleep" in verbose mode. Make sure your hard drive is set to AHCI mode in BIOS. Q. I get stuck on [PCI Configuration Begin]? Make sure your use either npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000. Q. I get stuck after [PCI Configuration Begin] or RTC: Only Single Ram Bank (128 bytes) or FakeSMC? Your motherboard has problems with USB Legacy so unplug the keyboard and mouse and see if you can boot, unplug them after you press enter after inserting your boot flags in Chameleon, you can also try by adding the bootflag: USBLegacyOff=Yes Q. Finder doesn't work? The kernel is only capable of 32 bit mode, meaning you'll need to use the Lion DP2 Finder which can be downloaded here. Replace System/Core Services/Finder.app. You'll need to replace this everytime you update Lion to a newer version. Q. -v Sometimes it doesn't load? Stuck after DMOS has arrived. It freezes sometimes, you'll need to use -x bootflag to run safe mode. Q. Does iCloud work? My Ethernet is en0, deleted Network Interfaces.plist, but still doesn't work? iCloud/Facetime doesn't work with self-compiled kernels. Appstore will work with EthernetBuiltIn=Yes bootflag. Q. Why do applications stop opening after X minutes? (Typically 10). Kernel bug, should be fixed in the future. READ BELOW FOR TIPS! The reason why applications are not functioning after 10 minutes is because Xpchelper has a bug and it's sending a lot of information to ReportCrash and it's basically nuking the system, hence system core services applications don't work after a while. You can remove ReportCrash in (sys/lib/coreserv/reportcrash) Force Quit XPCHELPER everytime you launch a system core service application like Safari, App Store, Calender, FaceTime etc. ​It won't fix it, and it will still stop working, but this prolongs the availability of opening applications and using your system for more varied tasks. Q. Do you have a Snow Leopard Guide? Yes!, you can find it here (AMD): http://www.insanelym...howtopic=253767 Bootable USB Open Charmeleon Wizard Install Charmeleon latest build to your USB stick Once completed it's ready to be used. IMPORTANT!=(When using this to boot you will need to press enter so it loads mach_kernel into the userframe before it can load futher, it'll tell you to press any key to continue because mach_kernel is not found, but once you type bootflags and try to load again, it'll work.)
  10. Hey guys, So here are my specs: Mobo: ASUS B150M-A CPU: i5-6500 Skylake GPU: ASUS STRIX R9 390 Monitor: Acer X34 Predator (3440x1440) OS: Dual boot Sierra and Windows 10 with Clover as bootloader I successfully got macOS Sierra running on my machine, but the resolution is wonky. Sierra won't properly recognize the R9 390. So, that being said, I want to accomplish either of two things: Either 1) Successfully use the R9 390 on Windows 10 and on Sierra with proper resolutions (Windows 10 works fine, just thought I'd mention that I do have it installed on a separate SSD in my machine) or 2) Use the R9 390 for Windows 10 and my iGPU (integrated graphics) for Sierra. My main use-case is developing using Xcode, so no intense gaming or graphics-heavy stuff going on. The thing is that I want to avoid having to swap monitor cables all the time. Current state: My machine starts up fine when I set the Boot GPU to the R9 390, but the resolution is incorrect. When I set the boot GPU to the integrated graphics, it doesn't start up at all, just goes to a blank screen. Any help is much appreciated.

    AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

    Hello, I have a motherboard (ASUS M4N68TM_LE_V2) which has the nForce 630a chipset (for AMD processors). As is the theme with nForce chipset motherboards, there is no option to select AHCI, only the default IDE mode or RAID, as seen in the following image: http://i.imgur.com/hsoGtdo.jpg I know that RAID implies AHCI, however, no matter if I am in the default or RAID mode, I still can't get to the Mac OS X Mountain Lion Installer, due to the "Still waiting for root device error". This image shows the error that I see: http://i.imgur.com/xY1qe0r.jpg The boot flags which I use are: -x -v npci=0x3000 (I use npci=0x3000 in order to get around the [PCI Configuration Begin] error) No matter if I run it using -x or not, it still won't work. I have tried 5/6 different nForce ATA kexts, to no avail, and tried Verdant's Support Pack, which didn't seem work for me either. What would you suggest? What do you think is the problem? Also to note, I have Mac OS X Mountain Lion on a USB drive, using Andy Vandjick's 10.8.2 AMD kernel. I am using Chameleon the bootloader. Thank you.

    AMD Kernel

    Version 10.8.x

    4,152 downloads

    Support topic for the kernel is here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/281450-mountain-lion-kernel-testing-on-amd-dont-ask-help-here-use-the-help-topic/ The kernel is RC4 by Bronzovka. I think that it is the best AMD Kernel at the moment. Advantages: 1. Faster than Andy's kernels (less than 30s) 2. Running stable 3. SSSE3 issue has already been solved But the kernel still has a few glitches. We will strive for it!
