    R9 380 fully work in Sierra

    r9 380 (a.k.a r9 285) used to work OOB on Yosemite, but became very problematic after El Capitan release booting to black screen. Finally, I managed to make it work under Sierra without any compromises. Graphics acceleration, OpenCL, Metal, sleep, audio via DP...all tested & confirmed to be working. In short, I had to do some ACPI patching, to get video out from my card. I still have to use my iGPU as a helper card, but fortunately NOT in "headless" mode. So I got image output & full acceleration from my iGPU too, don't have to blind boot or switch monitor cables during boot time. You know, it just works To confirm that everything works properly, I used FractalArchitect4 (its OpenCL & Metal built-in test tool), OpenGL Extensions Viewer, GeekBench (OpenCL), Final Cut X (OpenCL? Metal?) and After Effects (2017 version use GPU for compositing & accelerating some filters). I tested dGPU & iGPU separately. They work in each scenario properly, stabile & as fast as expected. Below are details of my machine and config.

  2. This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing: My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done! The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC! BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus Ellesmere.kext.zip

    AMD 7750 (7770, 7xxxx) fixture for Mojave

    I have bought a 2nd hand AMD Radeon 7750 to fix my Mojave installation problems. Although the Vendor/Device Id is in AMD7000Controller.Kext, I get a black screen and with some changes a yellow screen. I can not find any useful information to fix that. All information are for High Sierra and older macOS versions. Is there any fix to resolve that? What if I buy an RX 650 for example?

  8. Hi, I tried during last 4 days almost everything but now I call for help. I have RX560 running on 10.13.4. Previously I was running it on 10.12.6 and had the same problem, but after waking from sleep my thiord display came to life, but it is not working anymore on 10.13.4. Without or with Lilu & Whatewergreen my system correctly recognize my gpu as RX560 but only 2 of 3 displays are displaying content, third display is black but recieving some signal. When I change cabling and connect only two, any combination of 2 displays is working. System profiller and system preferences are sayin I have 3 displays connected.Please can somebody help me to figure it out?Thanks a lot in advance. Tried to upload my ioreg but it is greater than 10MB allowed for me :(
  9. Hi all guys I need your help and I hope you can help me I took the road to install High Sierra on my new build and now I have some doubt / difficulty I do not know how to solve. My configuration: 8700K Asrock Z370 Professional Gaming i7 AMD RX580 Nitro+ 8GB First I created the usb pendrive and I used Clover with the following configurations: Bootflag: dart=0 -v Kext: Bios Setting: VT-d = Disabled Share Memory = 128MB IGPU Multi-Monitor = Enabled XHCI Hand-off = Enabled SMBIOS: iMac18,3 So far no problem, it started successfully, I initialized the hdd in APFS and I ran the installation. Once finished, it started and I made the first configuration successfully. At this point I configured Clover the same way as the installation: Bootflag: dart=0 disablegfxfirmware shikigva=4 -rad4200 darkwake=8 Devices: Graphics: Kernel and Kext Patches: SMBIOS: iMac18,3 Kext: I reboot and start without problems, but I know there is some problem to solve ... for example, the video card seems to recognize it but if I run a benchmark with "Novabench" I noticed that the GPU is recognized as 1GB: With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": || || || I tried to delete "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled" and I recognize the card differently but the same problem presents itself: || || || Why is it recognized by 1GB instead of 8GB? While on System Profiler is recognized by 8GB .... I'm doing something wrong? I tried to enable also "Hardware Encoding & HEVC Support" but I noticed a detail that I do not know if it's right or not (Hardware Info "MacX Video Converter Pro"): Without "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled": With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": [COMING SOON SCREENSHOT] Is it normal that this occurs? Which one is correct? I'm going completely in confusion I'm trying to figure out if I need to make any other changes to the system, if I add some other patches to make it work properly but I do not know where to check. I'm trying to configure the DSDT but DSDT Editor and MaciASL do not work, they do not open the DSDT.aml file generated by AIDA64. Do you know how to give me a hand? I'm banging my head for 2 days I thank you in advance for the help and I apologize for my english I hope I was clear

  11. How to make AppleHDAController load on Ryzen boards? Rename(/add) your audio controller to your DSDT/SSDT as HDEF Add a _DSM method to your HDEF device with layout id 1 Patch the AppleHDAController binary, because it has a static table containing the supported PCI Vendor/DeviceID pairs and it also checks the VendorID against known values. As an example I provide a dif file and patched 10.13.3 binary, but if you want to I can patch the binary for other versions. After AppleHDAController loads to actually get sound working you need to patch AppleHDA.kext for the codec on your board. First I tried to use Lilu+AppleALC for this task, but for some reason it refused to work. (I might look into it later why) But for the time being it was easier to use toleda's cloverALC script for that, but to make it work I had to change(/remove) the specified location of the HDEF device from the script. And for some reason it also required me to mount the EFI partition manually. Change this: if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF@1") != 0 ]]; then Into this: if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF") != 0 ]]; then AppleHDAController_Patched10.13.3 AppleHDAController-10.13.3-AMD.bdiff

    Weird display issues with gxt1060

    Hi, i recently set up High Sierra on my AMD computer with the help of the amdosx community (i actually used an installer just to confirm that something would work in the first place before i spend hours for nothing, i can and could have downloaded High Sierra the "legal" way). However the graphicscard is recognized properly, the 6gig are recognized and i have no artifacts and no screen tearing with the official nvidia webdriver, but unfortunally, dark colors have horizontal dark stripes in them and specific bright colors like on left bar of system windows such as settings do flicker like low fps. I only used the clover on the flash drive for now and i'd like if it's worth digging deeper of if i should just forget about it as it is a common nvidia problem on macOS. Would be amazing to know. Closer machine infos: * High Sierra (misses a recent minor patch as my network is veeeery slow and i got this nvidia issue anyway so i mainly jumped back to linux) * AMD fx8350 * Asus Sabertooth 990fx Ref. 2.0 * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

    Ryzen Kernel

    I've been trying to follow the progress on the current Ryzen kernel being developed by Bronya and Co, and I keep seeing people say that it's "not working" for FX processors. This is very, very confusing to me. The two architectures are so different from one another, why would anyone expect the same kernel to work on them both? I surprised some people are having success at all, given things like the SenseMI tech, so it seems to me that trying to get one kernel to work on non-Ryzen systems is counterproductive. I have a feeling I'm just not understanding something basic, and rather than post (again) in the development thread, I hoped someone would take pity on me and answer here. Thank you in advance for reading/replying.
  16. System Configuration: Processor: AMD FX 8320 MB: M5A97 R2.0 GPU: RX 470 4GB I get the system to boot into osx sucessfully with "kernel=kernel.amd npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes -f." Keyboard and Mouse refuse to funtion. I have put the usb fixes in for sierra and the kernel to make it function. Ive put IOMMU to yes and to 64bit, disabled uefi due to boot issues.

    YOSEMITE Pre and Post Install

    Hi, everyone. I'm new here but I've have read some posts and information that is useful for the purpose. Im currently aiming to install Yosemite on my AMD pc, I have available a 16gb USB Drive and a MacBook Air for preparation files or that kind. Current setup: Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3 AMD Radeon 5770 8gb (2x4b) KINGSTON 600w Power Supply USB Mouse & Keyboard PCI-e WiFi Card (realtek) Any help would be helpful and any guide would be welcome, thanks a lot.
  19. Hey all. I'm not exactly new here, but I don't post that much. I recently installed a fresh copy of Sierra on my i7-3770k (mobo is an Asrock Z77 Pro 3), and all is well except for my GPU. I have an AMD R9 280x (ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5) and I'm aware that it's difficult to get OS X of any version to boot it directly without having the Intel GPU boot the system first. I'm aware of a user whose name I can't think of's scripts and whatnot to inject device IDs etc into Clover so it boots up as you'd expect with my 280x, but that's not working. Can anyone help me get mine working properly? I've tried to go through the personality tutorial etc but I couldn't get it working right. It's important that I have utilization of my discrete GPU because I have a BlackMagic Design Intensity Pro 4k capture card out for delivery, and I'd like to use it and then use BMD's NLE (NonLinearEditor) called DaVinci Resolve to edit the videos I make. Currently I'm able to boot up with the onboard GPU as main, and then just have my three displays use the 280x, but the main GPU is still my HD 4000. I hope I'm making sense here.. Thanks in advance, Shiggitay1
  20. Hey all, I have a PC with the following AMD FX 6300 CPU Gigabyte 78-LMT-USB3 Mobo Sapphire Nitro RX 460 (4GB) Sierra is installed, and runs fine with these flags: UseKernelCache=No -f -v -x npci=0x2000 But if I try to use UseKernelCache=No -f -v npci=0x2000 Sierra freezes after DSMOS arrives Images: Safe Boot: Freezing after DSMOS: I'm using Enoch and Sierra GM (10.12.0) I've removed these kexts from /S/L/E pmtelemetry.kext AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext AppleTyMCEDriver.kext Kernel is 10.12.0 beta from Bronya, with /S/L/E/System.kext replaced by Bronya's copy. I haven't as yet merged the frameworks, but will be doing so in the next 10 minutes. Any ideas? What I've done so far: - Merged frameworks, no changes when booting normally, or in safe mode. - Updated FakeSMC to latest RehabMan build, no change when booting normally, or in safe mode - Updated SMBios to MacPro5,1 from iMac17,1. No change when booting normally, or in safe mode
  21. Title says it all. I have an R9 390 working great on Sierra thanks to cyberdevs on this forum. That being said, I still have no audio and have "No Audio devices" in settings and system report. I'm running a displayport cable from the R9 390 to my monitor, an XR341CK, and was hoping to get audio from the built-in speakers. Anyone have any ideas? I've already tried installing the RealtecALC.kext for the ALC887 codec in S/L/E. Running this via onboard audio on my ASUS B150M-A mobo. Thank you in advanced - lord knows this forum has saved me from plenty of headaches.

    Still black boot with R290X on Sierra

    I have browsed thru all forums and all threads for this card but apparently my system is still something special. With some cumbersome effort (none of the simple one-click ##### and other USB-Installers methods ever worked for me) I managed to install Sierra 10.12.5. However when booting is nearly finsihed I get the famous black screen which can be recovered by quickly unplug/plug the DP monitor cable leading finally to a proper initialisation of my 290X. 1.) RadeoDeInit is on, without this patch the screens stays dark forever2.) Booting with iGFX never works for me, I always get memory allocation errors during boot until I disable the Intel graphics completely.3.) I am on Clover 4318, newer version do not make any differences. 4.) I am using a System Configuration for an Imac 14,2. Most other configs do not make difference either.I have not started again the nightmare of Framebuffer patching (as I remember from Yosemite) and I think it will not help as the card is recognised by Sierra but just not initialised.

    Backlight Control Sierra 10.12.5 AMD APU

    I have an HP Pavilion 15-p051us laptop that I have set up as a hackintosh. One of the last things I have not managed to get working is the backlight control. I have tried the ACPI Backlight (and Intel Backlight) method by rehabman (this has worked for some people by using Brightness by bergdesign) but it does not work for me. I have also tried the AppleBacklightInjector method mentioned here as well as patching my own by the method here. So far nothing has worked. I have not gotten a slider in the system preferences nor have I been able to change the brightness with the bergdesign app. I have used clover's PNLF fix only when the method says to do so (this was always the first thing I checked). I have attempted to create an IGPU device (yes on an AMD APU) by renaming _SB.PCI0.VGA to _SB.PCI0.IGPU and renaming the sub-device (LCD) to DD01. I also added methods in the IGPU device of my intel hackintosh but the brightness control still does not work with any method. I have attached the original DSDT (and SSDTs) as well as my modified DSDT (with IGPU, battery fix, and HPET fix). Is there any known way to control brightness on an AMD system or is there anything else I can try to make this work? Currently I can only use a semi-transparent overlay (brightness slider app in store) to "control" brightness. origin.zip patched.zip
  24. Hello At the moment i am busy with Mac OS on a: AMD A10 5750M AMD 8650G with R5 M230 dedicated gpu. By default i am using: Niresh 10.9.0 and Mac OS is using the 8650G (ID) Everything works fine: Sleep, Audio, Internet Wifi currently not, but no problem for me. Just want to know: - Is it possible to use Mac OS Optimized without kext/drivers? - Or can i get a kext/configuration from someone With the 8650G it is not working. Maybe it is possible to assign the R5 M230 to use. Can someone help me with this? I can use everything, but i got the flickering problems in the launchpad and safari. (3mb vram in configs) Thanks!
