theconnactic posted a topic in OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)We made history here! Now Mountain Lion works on AMD Machines. The support is still limited to Phenom and FX-Series CPUs, but soon we'll have fixes for other CPU models ALL CPUS, but nVidia GPUs won't boot without either safe boot (-x) or disabling GeforceGA.plugin and GeforceGLDriver.bundle (thus no QE/CI - hopefully a fix will come soon). amd_kernel.zip -----> latest kernel: credits to Andy Vandjick! (Pag 74, post #1468) This kext is obligatory: you must install it before starting your machine: http://cl.ly/0o3s0d2c001A -----> AnVsCoreCrypto! No more need for any patched kext. Thanks to all that developed, tested, commented, helped to spread the news, to all who believed in what was deemed impossible. Success was our reward, and i'm very proud of it. Happy new year! EDIT: We have an IRC room for talking about development of a Mountain Lion working kernel for AMD and other unsupported CPUs. Join us! Server chat.osx86.hu, room #LegacyKernel Well, i suppose we're lucky for Apple's early release of its Mountain Lion kernel as open source. Thanks to this, a patched Atom kernel is already done, although it doesn't work on my little Atom netbook. Hopefuly, an AMD patched kernel will be around soon but, as everybody should know, this one will be a troublesome build. The AMD kernel for the now superseded Mac OSX Lion is very limited, to be kind. In most AMD machines, basic functionalities doen't even run, like - yes, believe it! - the Finder. It could be quite useless, but it's not, thanks to many alternatives and workarounds to be found at the community. The problem for AMD is that any patched kernel since Lion is strictly i386. To have access to 64 bit apps in an AMD Lion install, it's necessary a Buldozer CPU, since it has support for a key instruction set in OSX Lion, the ssse3 (please, don't confuse it with sse3). All other AMD processors should run strict 32-bit, forbidding crucial apps like the newer xcodes. A solution for this would be a sss3 emulator. Anyone willing or able to write? (silence) As i already knew. But even when some good-willing and capable-minded individual(s) do write the emulator, there's another issue: maybe Lion would be good to go with AMD, but Mountain Lion needs a 64-bit-only legacy kernel. And 64-bit legacy kernels equals instant reboots in AMD rigs in Lion, even on ssse3-capable Buldozer machines. You can try it for yourself, with a 64-bit patch of RAW x86 (boot with arch=x64_86): http://osx86.co/f100...687/page23.html The question: is it really needed to figure out why these problems plague Lion running on AMD to make AMD work under Mountain Lion? Or the behavior of 64-bit patches would be completely different in ML? Anyway, it seems obvious to me that a sss3 emulator is crucial, since the vast majority of AMD systems are non-Buldozer. So, there's an anxious waiting at AMD realm, to finally get an early update of AMD systems, to be shoulder to shoulder with Intel users.
Duran Keeley posted a topic in OS X 10.10 (Yosemite)So the source has just been released. https://opensource.apple.com/release/os-x-1010/ With this release I want to do things a bit different: Topic ONLY for releases of kernels, this will make it easier to find kernels in the forum. Topic ONLY for the testing of a kernel, when a release of a kernel gets posted on the other topic inform this topic of the release and post findings here. I am also thinking of posting a topic on the building of each kernel release listing the: Dependancies Kernel Version Post the diffs for each release. Let me know if that would be something the testers would be keen on having.

Deltac0 posted a topic in AMDHi! As some of you may know, the AMD hackintosh scene isn't dead! Thanks to our genius developers (AnV, Sinetek, Nawcom, R:A:W:X86 and others... ), we now have ability to boot SL on AMD machine, WITH ARCH=x86_64! This involves some patching and tricks, and doesn't YET work on all AMD boxes. UPDATE: Sinetek just released a new kernel for Athlons and other Pre-Phenom CPUs! NOTE: After successful 64-bit boot (System Profiler -> Software -> 64-bit Kernel and Extensions: Yes), please post your processor in this topic. Confirmed processors: Phenom II x6 1090T Phenom II x4 965 Athlon II X4 645 Athlon II x4 640 Athlon II x3 435 Athlon X2 250 Athlon 64 x2 4000+ Requirements Working 10.6.8 installation, with either AnV or Nawcom legacy kernel Phenom II or maybe some other processor with L3 cache. Doesn't work with Athlons yet. Amd_insn_patcher to get patched dyld and other files. Backups, if you don't want to start everything from the start again. A little bit of brains, I think about 10 grams is enough. Installation Make sure you have backup of your HDD etc. I'm not responsible if you lose any of your data or if anything happens to your hard- / software. This may, or may not work. Don't do this if you have a working i386 -force64 system and you're happy with it. This kernel and other stuff is purely experimental, not stable release. Continue only if you have understood this. Let's start the process. Boot your hackintosh with AnV or Nawcom kernel, with arch=i386 and -force64! The patcher will screw your installation if you don't boot with -force64. Download the right kernel for your CPU, don't replace your existing kernel with it, just put it to the root of your HDD Patch your dyld and other stuff. Only works if you booted with -force64! Google more instructions for patching. This version of patcher works for me. Edit your boot.plist, change kernel to "sinetek" and arch=x86_64. No need for -force64 anymore. (or try with manual bootflags first) MAKE SURE ALL YOUR KEXTS ARE 64-BIT! This could work (not on Mac atm, can't test), x86_64 means 64-bit. Try to reboot. If it fails, reboot and type your bootflags in the Chameleon screen like: legacy_kernel arch=i386 -force64 Post problems / successes here and I'll try to help you.
