If you want to implement, to understand further you need to go through this post thoroughly :weight_lift:

Here are my dumps and mods I have done :

problems:

 

***Black/dark gradients are very crapy in my screen - in wallpaper/pictures/videos I dont have a clue how to fix it. :wallbash:

 

post-766686-0-65050400-1322771459_thumb.png

can you see the distorted black in left side and also in lower part?

 

***When I open a game in fullscreen the screen gets stuck and I have to force reboot. :hammer:

***recently I have got a acer monitor [ 1366 x 768 ] but getting problem in using that one.whenever I try to extend using extend key(in my dell studio - F1 key) the display breaks and if I try in system preferences-> display It shows my laptop screen as both display 1 & 2 ! I don't know what to do.Cannot use VGA port.

 

***Are there any mod needed for openGL in 4570 because to make my QE/CI work I havn't edited any kext except ATI4600Controller.kext . I dont know if it supports all the openGL functions a 4570 should support . How to know if openGL has been supported fully and properly?

Sure! Use Kext Helper or [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install or

 

Mannualy copy the ATI4600Controller.kext to /System/Library/Extensions.

Open Terminal and write

 

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/LibraryExtensions/ATI4600Controller.kext
give_your_admin_password
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ATI4600Controller.kext

Hi xzeil, thanks a lot for the kext, I installed it, repaired permissions but there is some problem (see image below) may be because of:

 

1.I have lion 10.7 dp4(11A480e)..and i am using chameleon boot loader ,

2. I don't have: a. com.boot.plist(still my pc boots with -v ncpi=0x2000 boot flags)

b. smbios.plist

c. patched dstd

e. ATI framebuffer.kext

f. ATY init.kext

 

I know i am very close to it thanks to you but i think something's missing , would you plz take a look at it.

For QE/CI in 1555 you have to use ATIframeBuffer- no need to edit it. Use GraphicsEnabler=Yes AtiConfig=Shrike boot flags while booting. You should patch dsdt.mod is given in 1st post. Edit it according to your GPU name and size.

Hi Xzeil, I did whatever you told me to do including:

 

1: Installed your patched kext along with the original ATIFramebuffer.kext from the lion dmg file.

2:Then I used boot flags GraphicsEnabler=Yes & AtiConfig=Shrike (I have included my com.boot.plist in the attached file.

3.Ya & I modified my DSDT with the help of DSDTSE utility, in that i needed to use Method DTGP(to eliminate all the errors) along with your mods as per the 1st step of this guide. I directly copy pasted your DSDT.mod in mine in the right place :angel_not: :angel_not: as my machine is also same as yours studio 1555 512MB ATI radeon HD 4570.

4. Then i was getting error in early boot screens as "ATI card posted ...this is not recoverable error", so i installed chameleon 2.0 rc5 r 780 trunk( given in zip file :wink2: :wink2: )

5. This new chameleon fixed my last error, and then while booting i got the same error ( one which i had posted yesterday.... the image ). It said ATI4600Controller.kext not loaded & then last but not least my display screen showed grey black patches in between the white color & I couldn't get to my desktop.

6. then again when i rebooted with GraphicsEnabler=No & checked system info.....voila i saw my graphics card was detected as ATI Radeon mobility HD 4570 512MB ....but no qe ci.

 

 

I don't know exactly what problem is... but 4600controller kext is not getting loaded. And still unsure about the DSDT.mod plz plz check it.

 

I was wondering if your & mine machine is same so if i used your dsdt.aml as it is....will that be ok? :thumbsup_anim:

 

 

& sorry for this all trouble.

No problem!

I think 4600Controller giving problem because its from 10.7.2[ 11C74 ] and yours is GM4 .. but not sure

I am giving my modded chameleon build(i386 folder) try to install this one..use org.chameleon.Boot.plist instead of com.boot.plist .. delete all unnecessary additions

Yeah sure! giving my dsdt I thinnk both our laptops are same. but still check It might be incompatible to your system,(My system is in my signature)

- Download and install XCode (3.2.x or 4.2.x depending on which OSX version you're running).

 

- Pull down Chameleon source code as follows:

- Fire up a Terminal window

- Type
mkdir chamsrc
(or whatever name you prefer to name it)

- Type
cd chamsrc

- Type
svn co
- this will pull the latest from trunk. If you have a specific version in mind, simply add the version number between
co
and
http

. i.e. svn co 1700

- Type
cd chameleon/trunk/i386/libsaio

-
Edit
ati.c
with your editor of choice (you could use XCode's).

- Search for string "9553" and you should come up with a section where 9553's are grouped together (I believe latest trunk has two or three definitions).

- If your line does not exist already, add it and save the file.

- Type
cd ..
twice and then
pwd
to make sure you are inside the "trunk" directory (Look at your prompt line, it will show which directory you are in).

- Type
make clean
to prep working folders using during compile.

- Type
make
to start compiling the bootloader, and wait until it's finished.

 

The next steps assume your current configuration has the loader installed in the MBR and the boot file in your OSX installation's root. If you have a different configuration (i.e. dedicated EFI partition), these steps will not work and you will have to refer to other guides you can find on the Internet (Google is your friend...). Also, if you don't want to type "sudo" every time, just type sudo -s once. This will have you rooted. Personally, I root on a "once and only if needed" basis.

- Type
diskutil list
and take note of the identifier assigned to your OSX installation partition (normally it is disk0s2 and that is what I used for these instructions. If yours is different you must make sure you replace when typing the commands below).

- Type
cd sym/i386
and do a
ls
. You should have a bunch of boot files with different names, a "modules" folder, etc.

- Type
sudo ./fdisk440 -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk
X
<< careful here, the X in rdiskX must be replaced to match the X in the diskXsZ part you noted from diskutil.

- Type
sudo dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk
X
s
Z
<< again, X and Z from your diskXsZ you noted from diskutil. Normally you would type rdisk0s2 here...

You can make a copy of your current boot file, just in case. If you don't want to you can skip the next command.

-
Type
sudo cp /boot /boot.old

-
Type
sudo
cp boot /

-
Type
sudo ./fdisk440 -e /dev/disk
X
<< Need I say what N should be, again?

- Ignore any messages about the MBR and standalone folders...

- Type
f 2

- Type
write
and again ignore any messages about exclusive access. If asked to reboot to complete changes then answer y.

- Type
exit
to return to your bash prompt.

- You may optionally copy the entire "modules" folder in /Extra. I don't use it (yet).

- Make sure you have your GraphicsEnabler=Y setting in your boot.plist file and reboot OSX.

- If you don't KP and the system comes back up, there's a chance or two you may have QE/CI.

 

I hope you do, and I hope this helps.

No. I've been at it for almost four months now, and just a few nights ago I made some progress by achieving QE/CI on partially working outputs (actually HDMI and VGA are working properly, just LVDS is not).

      Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga). 
      Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?

      Hi there.
      I'm new to this site but not totally new to hack. I've had a hack since 10.4 and the latest version I ran was 10.9, not totally fixed but it worked to what I needed. Now I want to make the machine run as good as it can. I can see there has been a lot of changes/upgrades/new solutions since I installed my hack and I have a hard time to catch up.  
      I've been able to boot and install macOSX and now I need the POST installation.
      I tried to install the clover EFI boot loader with these settings:
       
      and found the DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml from HERE
      found the apfs.efi
      and placed it in EFI -> EFI -> CLOVER -> driver64
      and these kext in here:

       
       
      But when I boot it up this is the first bootscreen I have. No partions, no mouse control, no nothing.

      if I exit clover this screen appear.

      and now everything works. 
       
      What is wrong?
      Cheers

      Hi everybody! I need some help today: I’m trying to install Mac OS Sierra 10.12.5 on my friend’s laptop, which is an Acer Aspire 5250, but that’s quite a difficult task because it’s an AMD CPU. The model is AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics (graphics model Radeon HD 6320). I need some help because I can’t boot the installer, when I select my USB from Clover, after the row of pluses in verbose mode instead of showing me all the booting commands it stucks on a black screen and the screen starts flickering along with a continuous beep sound and so I’m unable to get to the installer. Do I need a patched kernel or something else? Are you able to give me some help? Thanks!
