  1. I'm really a noob to this, so forgive me if I ask stupid questions. I really think I just need guidance that I'm heading in the right direction. I used Fuision71au's guide along with some others on the internet to get a Virtualbox VM up and running and imessage working using clover. I'd like to run this on more of my pc's including some AMD FX based ones. My thought was that I could boot the VM on intel, make the changes necessary for AMD and then copy it over to the AMD machine. My understanding is that I need to swap the kernel out for the AMD kernel. I have the kernel and I know it goes into /System/Library/Kernels. 1. I can't just copy the kernel in, because it tells me that the operation is not permitted. I've tried using csrutil disable booted into recovery but it doesn't stick. I'm not sure why. It reverts to enabled after reboot. Is there another way to get the Kernel copied over to /System/Library/Kernels ? 2. Assuming I can get the kernel copied over I believe I need to make some changes to config.plist. I've found this post but honestly, I'm not sure what these do. I'd like to understand what needs to be in config.plist in order to get the AMD kernel to work properly. Is there a good guide to what the AMD kernel options and requirements are? Am I on the right track? Is there any knowledge or guideance or silver bullet you could tell me to get this working? Any assistance is appreciated.

    AMD Radeon R7 250X works!

    Well, the title says it all! It worked flawlessly in 10.11.3 El Capitan. Verde.kext was needed, though! I just followed instructions for HD 7770. Using Clover UEFI, only works in EFI mode (at least mine). Model: ASUS Radeon R7 250X 1GB RAM DDR5. Also don't use InjectATI! Verde.kext.zip
  8. This thread is aimed at developers and people who are willing to help with the AMD kernel specifically the FX problems. Here are two diff files from my kernels in an attempt to get FX working as it should. I am no developer so I'm hoping someone can help us. If you've made a kernel different from these sources please share your diff too so it can help us. Note that this topic is not for testing but discussing the source itself. For FX testing visit here, http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/310796-amd-os-x-el-capitan-1011-fx-kernel-task-force/ Shaneee-diff.zip xnu-3248.20.55-legacy-v4.diff.zip To build the kernel you will need xCode installed which is available from the App Store. Once installed perform the following commands to install the dependencies, curl -O https://opensource.apple.com/tarballs/dtrace/dtrace-168.tar.gz curl -O http://opensource.apple.com/tarballs/AvailabilityVersions/AvailabilityVersions-22.40.2.tar.gz tar zxf dtrace-168.tar.gz cd dtrace-168 mkdir -p obj sym dst xcodebuild install -target ctfconvert -target ctfdump -target ctfmerge ARCHS="x86_64" SRCROOT=$PWD OBJROOT=$PWD/obj SYMROOT=$PWD/sym DSTROOT=$PWD/dst sudo ditto $PWD/dst/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain cd .. tar zxf AvailabilityVersions-22.40.2.tar.gz cd AvailabilityVersions-22.40.2 mkdir -p dst make install SRCROOT=$PWD DSTROOT=$PWD/dst sudo ditto $PWD/dst/usr/local `xcrun -sdk macosx -show-sdk-path`/usr/local Now you can download the kernels source from here, http://opensource.apple.com/tarballs/xnu/xnu-3248.60.10.tar.gz Copy to your desktop or chosen folder and extract then in terminal type "cd " without the quotes and with the space and drag the extracted folder onto window and press enter. Now to apply a diff patch use the following, patch -p1 < /Path/To/Diff/File Replace /Path/To/Diff/File by dragging the diff file onto the terminal window. Then you can edit the source within the xnu-3248.60.10 folder as you wish and to build the kernel enter the following, make SDKROOT=macosx ARCH_CONFIGS=X86_64 KERNEL_CONFIGS=RELEASE install Once complete the Kernel and matching System.Kext are found in xnu-3248.60.10/BUILD/dst/System/Library. You can ignore the Frameworks.

    Trouble Installing AMD Kernel

    Hello, so since the last time I posted I've had a bit of luck and happened to find an old iMac in the dumpster at my job. I took it home, repaired it and now I have a legitimate means of getting a fresh copy of OS X! With that in mind, I've ditched the Niresh distro because no matter how many different things I tried I could NEVER get my graphics card to work properly. So I'm back at it trying to make a clean installer with the bare minimum to get me through, so far it's been going pretty good except one thing...the kernel. I honestly don't know where or how to install it onto the boot drive. I've looked around on these forums, on other forums(including Reddit >.>), etc. and I can't seem to find the answer that I'm looking for. My first attempt I just dragged/dropped into the USB drive after installing Clover, that obviously didn't work. I also renamed it to "mach_kernel" which didn't do anything either, lastly I tried installing it in a few places that I thought might be more likely such as the EFI drive. Am I missing something? Overthinking it? I'm at a loss. I'll break down my steps for creating the installer, hopefully someone can help me push through to the next step. ---------------------------------------------------------- My Specs: AMD FX 8350 Asus M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard MSI R9 290 Twin Frozr 4X4GB AMD R9 Gaming RAM @ 2133Mhz Corsair 850W Gold Cert. PSU Installing on a 2.5" spare laptop drive ----------------------------------------------------------- Here's my method of creating the installer: Step 1: Download the Install OS X Yosemite.app installer Step 2: Run Terminal, type in this command: "sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction" Step 3: Once it finishes installing, I restart the iMac to complete any necessary changes Step 4: Open and install the latest revision of Clover to the drive Step 5: Restart the iMac again Step 6: Place FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement kexts into the 10.10 folder inside the USB installer Step 7: Place the AMD kernel for 10.10.5 in the USB installer Step 8: Create a config.plist file with Clover configurator on the iMac to match what I've needed to boot previously and place inside the EFI partition of the USB installer Step 9: Remove the drive, attempt install on PC. ----------------------------------------------------------- Some additional notes: - The kernel I'm using is an AMD 10.10.5 kernel by Deepak, not sure if the OS X version I have is 10.10.5 since it won't tell me in the App Store when I load it, not sure if this is an issue or not - The kexts were also provided by Deepak on his website on getting El Capitan to work - I have installed Clover for UEFI boot, which my system is perfectly capable of, however I'm wondering if it might be a part of the problem - When I actually boot the USB drive, it starts up for several seconds in verbose mode and then powers down my computer completely, restoring power a couple of seconds later. I've been at this since April trying to get a working install of Mavericks and Yosemite, both unsuccessfully, so thanks in advance for any and all help, it's definitely appreciated!
  11. I have: Intel Core i7 7700K 4.2 Ghz Gigabyte GA-Z270MX/Gaming 5 Samsung CF791 Series 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor (C34F791) 3440x1440 4K Samsung U28E590D 28-Inch UHD LED-Lit Monitor with Freesync support 3840x2160 4K XFX AMD Radeon™ RX 580 8GB 256 Bit GDDR5 Graphics Card Both monitors are hooked up through Display Port Sierra works fine and I get full 4K off both monitors and everything works. However.... With High Sierra I can only boot into High Sierra with 1 of the monitors turned on. Whenever I turn on the 2 monitor everything freezes within High Sierra and screen goes gray. I can still see the desktop but can't click on anything. Anybody know what I can do to get both monitors working fully in 4K? Some Success ------------- After 2 days of constant testing with no luck. I think the problem has something to do with the AMD .kexts in S/L/E. When I copied the AMD .kexts from Sierra to High Sierra I got weird colors (red & blues flipped) and the 2nd monitor will go on and not lock up the computer Even though the method of copying kexts somewhat worked... It made the graphics choppy and everything was running slow (open windows and programs). Is there a FakeID (FB Name, NVCAP, VRAM, Video Ports, Display-cfg, ig-platform-id, BootDisplay) of some sort I can use in Clover to fix this? Kext? My clover config is attached if that helps anybody! Also... The 2 pictures attached are what happens. Boots with 1 monitor on. As soon as the 2nd monitor is turned on or plugged in... The working monitor goes black and everything stops responding. config.plist.zip

    AMD Cool 'n' Quiet

    Hello, Is there a way to get AMD Cool 'n' Quiet/auto downclocking working on an OS X Mavericks hackintosh? This is because I do not want my Hackintosh to drain electricity by running at its max clock speed all of the time. I am running a M5A78L-M LX3 motherboard, with an AMD Phenom II X4. Many thanks
  14. Introduction With Whatevergreen.kext we already have a workaround for the AMD GPU wakeup issue which first arose with the release of El Capitan, but as a workaround is just a second class solution for a problem I decided to trace back the reason for the issue to it's origin and this post is the result of my research. As I used a R9 270X to do my research, which is the only AMD GPU I have, my patch has only been verified to work properly with this chip but according to the information sources I used, I have no reason to believe it won't work on other AMD GPU's too. In case there is still some uncertainty left in a particular point, I will mention this explicitly. Materials Used The Linux kernel sources of the Radeon driver in order to get a better understanding of the GPU's internals: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon?h=next-20171013 A copy of the ACPI 6.0 specs in order to find out how to dump the chip's control register space. A disassembler, e.g. objdump in Terminal or the trial version of Hopper Disassembler. What I Did As it's been a well known fact that wakeup with AMD GPUs still works with El Capitan and Sierra provided you select the IGPU as primary GPU enabled CSM and use Legacy VBIOS of the AMD GPU in BIOS setup. I was wondering what is different with UEFI VBIOS and decided to I create dumps of the GPU's control register space while using Legacy VBIOS with CSM enabled and while using UEFI VBIOS with CSM disabled in order to find out. Comparing the register space contents it became obvious where the root of the problem lies and how it can be fixed with a DSDT patch. Technical Background Using Legacy VBIOS only the primary GPU is initialized by the VBIOS, i.e. only the IGPU is initialized while the AMD GPU is left untouched. When OS X boots up the framebuffer controller kext will find the AMD GPU in vanilla state, initialize it properly and wakeup will work as expected. That's also the reason why you have to blind boot in this configuration. Using UEFI VBIOS the AMD GPU will be initialized too, provided it has a display connected to one of it's ports. You'll see the BIOS splash screen and will be able to access the BIOS settings but unfortunately macOS's framebuffer controller kext will notice that the GPU has already been initialized and skips the basic setup so that the configuration made by the VBIOS will be used and this is the point where things start to go wrong because this configuration seems to be broken causing wakeup to fail. First of all you have to locate the AMD GPU in your DSDT. In my case it can be found at _SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP but it needs to be renamed to GFX0 for AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext (AGDP) to work properly. This can be done manually or using a Clover patch (this is what I did) and I assume that this problem has been already solved before. The reason why I mention it explicitly here, is that you should be aware of it and don't get confused when your AMD GPU has a different name in the DSDT than in IORegistry. Second, we need to get access to the GPU's control register space. According to the Linux sources, PCI Base Address Register 2 (BAR2) is used to address the control register space on Radeon HD5000, HD6000 and HD7000 GPUs. It's a 64bit base address register but newer GPUs (BONAIRE and above, i.e. Radeon HD8000 and HD9xxx) are different as the use BAR5 instead of BAR2. Unlike BAR2, BAR5 is a 32bit base address register. On my R9 270X (PITCAIRN) BAR5 is zero so that I decided to use this as an indication to use BAR2 but I must confess that I haven't checked if it works for all supported GPUs too. In case my patch doesn't work for you, be aware that this might be a pitfall! The Radeon driver's source code tells us that the first display controller engine's registers can be found starting at offset 0x6800. It also tells us a lot about the meaning of the register contents. Using Legacy VBIOS my R9 270X's display controller engine's registers are still at their default values when macOS boots: 00006800 01 00 00 00 08 80 00 0a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006810 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006820 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006830 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006840 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006850 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006860 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006870 00 00 00 00 08 80 00 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006880 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006890 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068b0 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |........... ... | 000068c0 00 00 00 20 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |... ....... ... | 000068d0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 |... ..... ......| 000068e0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 |... ......... ..| 000068f0 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 |..... ......... | With UEFI VBIOS the display controller engine's registers look quite different. Using the Linux driver sources you can easily make sense out of these values and will discover that I've got a 4K display connected to my R9 270X which is configured to it's native resolution using 32 bits per pixel. 00006800 01 00 00 00 0a 80 00 0a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006810 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0f 00 00 f4 00 00 00 |................| 00006820 f4 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006830 00 00 00 00 00 0f 00 00 70 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 |........p.......| 00006840 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006850 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006860 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006870 00 00 00 00 08 80 00 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006880 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006890 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068b0 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |........... ... | 000068c0 00 00 00 20 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |... ....... ... | 000068d0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 |... ..... ......| 000068e0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 |... ......... ..| 000068f0 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 |..... ......... | The rest was just a little bit of laborious work and trial and error, comparing register contents, understanding their meanings and see what happens when you reset these registers to their default values. If you try to play around with your GPU's control registers a little bit more, be prepared to get a garbled screen for a few seconds. After all I've managed to create a DSDT patch which fixes the wrong registers while preserving screen output during boot and, most important, solves the wakeup issue. The Patch Putting things together I created a DSDT patch to fix the incorrectly initialized registers. With this patch applied, I now have working wakeup with my R9 270X under Sierra (10.12.6) using UEFI VBIOS with CSM disabled in UEFI setup. No kext patches or additional kexts are needed anymore for sleep/wake to work properly with my R9 270X anymore. I can see the BIOS splash screen on my display and can access UEFI setup but the best of all is that there hasn't been a single wakeup issue since I applied this patch.

I'm willing to share all my information in order support further research. Below you can find the register dumps I created attached to this post. FAQ Do I still have to select the IGPU as the primary display? No. Although I haven't tried this on my own, user chh1 confirmed that this is no longer required when using the patch (please see http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328549-tracing-back-the-amd-gpu-wakeup-issue-to-its-origin/?do=findComment&comment=2519884). Nevertheless I still recommend to select the IGPU as primary as there is absolutely no reason not to do so, in particular as the IGPU will be unusable for multimedia acceleration on Haswell based systems when it's not the primary one (IGPU's dev id is different when it's not the primary one). ​When I boot into macOS I always end up with a black screen. Does your patch solve this problem too? No, it doesn't. This patch solves the wakeup issue, nothin more and nothing less. The black screen after boot is either the result of a connector problem (please create a connector patch for your graphics card using the well-known methods) or the result of a problem with AGPM as certain system definitions (in particular recent iMacs) select special configurations for graphics power management. In order to achieve proper operation of AGPM it is crucial that your GPUs have correct names in the DSDT matching those listed in the AGPM configuration for the system definition (IGPU for the Intel GPU and GFX0 for the AMD GPU on iMac15,1, iMac17,1 and iMac18,x). You may patch your DSDT manually or use a Clover DSDT-patch to fix the device names. Credits vit9696 for developing Whatevergreen.kext and pointing me to the right direction.

    VoodooTSCSync Configurator

    Version 2.1


    This app can be used to edit or create custom versions of the voodoo tsc sync kext, i have created it because i have seen many times peoples having troubles in finding the right version of voodoo tsc sync for their cpu, so i created a mac app that lets to edit or create a voodoo tsc kext and configure it for your system, i have included 3 ways to edit the kext: 1) configure using one of the existing templates (just chose one of the cpu models listed) 2) specifying the number of logical cores (threads) 3) manually editing the info.plist of the kext using the editor (still experimental, needs some improvements) This app uses a copy of the VoodooTSCSync in his Resourches folder, or you can open an existing version of VoodooTSC and edit it, there are some other useful features to discover, and new ideas are also welcome to improve this program, i know that with a plist editor you can do what this app does, but this is designed to be more user friendly than editing a plist file manually and just for accomplish the task of configuring this kext for your machines without looking on the web for that specific pre-configured version you need, just download this program and follow a few steps.

  16. I want to run a Hackintosh as a Virtual Machine, for the sole purpose of testing C++ code for compatibility on Mac's compiler. So, I don't care much about which version of OSX, as long as it can update to the current XCode and LLVM. I don't care about other features including USB. I downloaded Jas.10.4.8 as described here. It stops when it gets to " No AirPort Driver found" and "Login Window Application Started" though they can appear in either order. The CPUs are pegged, as I can see from the Host. Is there something better/newer I ought to be using? I've heard that later versions don't have AMD support, so I went with this which promised to be easy. But now VMWare has EFI BIOS support, so maybe there are more (easy) choices. Any pointers? Or a complete VM already set up (one can always hope...)
  17. Evening all. Have completed my install on my other PC, (core2duo), installed easily but now, am attempting to get my AMD box to run. Not ideal, but does anyone know where I can go from here. MoBo is an MS 7786 v1.0 with AMD A6 APU. Currently installed, is 10.6.3 using the Nawcom boot disc. OS is runing fine, currently have no graphics card installed. I have a GT610 here that works well in the Core2Duo, but not on 10.6.3 (afaik its too old to support this card). So, my questions are moving foward : Can i get a gfx card (PCIexpress) that will work in this machine? I used software update, and after that it wouldnt boot, even with flags. Am i right in thinking, i wiped out the AMD kernel, etc when updated? Is there a way to get a newer version of OSX on here? I have no problem in purchasing it to get it to run. Im sure there will be more... cheers! Kev.
  18. HI! I've been trying to install Lion on my system with the various AMD kernels floating about, but im not able to get it even close to getting to the install screen. I've seen that there are a few iso's around but none that work or have any seeders. From what i understand there is an issue with Finder and AMD but that the Finder from beta 2 works fine. I'm really interested in learning more about Osx86 and I would like to make my own install disk that will boot on an AMD system and install the beta 2 Finder automatically but my attempts have not been successful and I havent found a guide that explains it any better. All the guides I found state I have to have a working SL system and upgrade it, witch isn't ideal. What I was thinking was that I would transfer the content of the BaseSystem.dmg found in the app-store image and make the regular changes you would in order to make an intel install disk, add the new kernel and install chameleon. But that has (as I expected) not worked fore me. Does anyone know what files I would have to change in order to make it work and would be so kind as to help me out? Thanks!
  19. So I've used Nawcom's ModCD with a retail .dmg of snow leopard and regardless of what I do, I seem to run into the same issue. I get this message: "Bacxktrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack) 0x437f0718 : 0x21b3a4 (0x58c612 0x2 0x347f13e8 0x223a12) warning: invalid kernel ip, won't attempt to trap Debugger called: <double panic>" This is what I got under the hood: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 (Two of em) 16 GB DDR3 AMD Phenom II X 4 965 BE
  20. Ciao a tutti ragazzi ho bisogno di un grande aiuto!!! Il mio Notebook Acer V5-551 ha una scheda audio Conexant CX20588, in rete ho trovato alcuni kext adatti ad essa, solo che provandoli ad installare non ho avuto i risultati sperati e la mia scheda audio continua a non funzionare. (NB: per alcuni kext vengono date ulteriori indicazioni sulla modifica del DSDT per farli funzionare nel modo corretto, io ovviamente non so come fare). Riuscite a darmi una mano? Aspetto vostre notizie

    I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Hey everyone. I'm a newbie to the world of Hackintosh, and I finally decided to give it a go for the second time. I've decided on Yosemite as my OS, and I don't want to use a distro. The only issue is, I have no idea what I'm doing. I tried to make an USB once, and gave up after hours and hours spent not even getting to the installer. If anyone knows what I should be using, please help me, because I sure don't. My specs are: ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 Motherboard, AMD FX-8320 CPU, Nvidia GTX 760 GPU. If anyone has links or tutorials that would be amazing. Thanks!
  22. Guten Nabend liebes Forum, ich habe eine Frage zu einem Problem bei Mac OS X auf einem Windows 7 Laptop zu installieren. Mein Laptop läuft unter Amd Turion X2 und mit 2 GB RAM. Außerdem besitzt er eine ATI Readon 3200 Grafikkarte, ich weiß, nichts besonderes aber für Kalyway 10.5.2 müsste es doch reichen oder? Ich habe Kalyway 10.5.2 über eine Virtuelle Maschine installiert VMWorkstation, dazu habe ich dieses Online- Tutorial befolgt: Soweit so gut, Mac OS X wurde "erfolgreich" installiert, jedoch kann ich es nicht booten. Wenn ich auswähle OS X auswähle erscheint jedes mal beim hochfahren ein Error " Chain bootin error".. Und es passiert nichts. Ich bitte um Hilfe, danke!
  23. Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to hackintoshing. I'm running a triple core AMD Anthlon 3.1 GHZ Proccesor with a 785G chipset. I have a 1TB internal HDD and a 120 GB External. Currently, I have a hackintosh running on the external BUT Where can I find a kext for my ATI Radeon 4200 Video Card? Seriosuly I looked everywhere but couldn't find one. Also I am running my hackintosh on an external. Should I partition my internal and dualboot since I want to make it my daily driver. Where can I find a wifi kext. I have an 802.11n card on this computer but I was unable to find a kext for it. Thanks everyone, -Momin

    Possible to Hackintosh?

    My setup: Asus m4a79xtd Evo motherboard AMD Athlon II 3.2 ghz Rana processor, all four cores unlocked AMD 4600 HD graphics card Dynex network card (Runs off Realtek drivers) I am also running a Logitech g35 headset, but they have the driver software available for a mac, so not worried too much about that. I tried it before, with a distro, and it would get as far as booting to disc but then boot loop while trying to install. Clear instructions and links to all of the patches I might need would also be well appreciated, the use of the one distro I ifollowed the directions given and it still bootlooped me. Thanks. Edited to add: I am fairly tech savvy (I have rooted both mine and my husband's android phones and installed custom roms, no problem, and have also jailbroken my playstation portable and put custom firmare on it, if that is any indicator. XD) I just need to know *exactly* what I may be doing wrong so I can fix it.
