[HOW TO] Make Radeon {Desktop or Mobility} be working by using Clover


428 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi @Slice, what's up?

I'm trying to inject graphics without the need of WhateverGreen, 'cause I found on some test with metal or openGL you have a decent increase in performance. Currently everything works perfectly, I have only one display connected to a sapphire RX590 nitro + through displayport, and I use the UHD 630 from my 9700k just for H265 acceleration. Is there any way to replicate this situation by taking advantage of the config.plist and without WhateverGreen.kext? 

Currently I'm on iMac 19,1 and my Graphics section is totally empty, WhateverGreen does it all. Is there a way to understand what is it doing as an example and work it out from there?

 

 

(Hardware down here - I can provide the config.plist if required)

Thanks a lot, and keep up your good work!

Hello

I have a question in regards to this connector setup.

I have an hp 8740w laptop with a ATI FirePro M7820 . Its basically an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 which is based on a desktop Radeon HD 5770 with slower clock speeds. The HD 5770 is what clover sees and will inject.

I've already done my Os X install of Mountain Lion and im working through a few issues. I'm using clover as my bootloader. I'm having some issues with my laptop display. BlackScreen after the boot. I can plug in an external monitor to the VGA port and it works fine. I've been able to play with the display resolutions and get the laptop monitor to work somewhat but not what it should be. Depending on the resolution i choose i get different issues....There doesn't seem to be a good resolution.  So anyway.. I was reading about clover and its ability to inject the video which led me here. I went throught the instructions and i'm kinda stuck at a point....Heres the issue. My card can support up to 5 outputs. The actual laptop only has 3. A DP, VGA,and LCD. The laptop has the ability to plug into a dock that could give me 2 more outputs. The issue is choosing a proper personality. As you can see from below, There are no personalities with 5 outputs. Thats ok. I likly would never use them. But there isn't a personality that gives me a LVDS, DP and a VGA either. Thats ok aswell. I likly wouldn't use the Laptop's DP either.

Which leaves me with finding a personality for LVDS, and VGA. Hense my issue.

I have searched the forums for people setting up their hackintoshes with the same hardware and found one that was able to able to get his running by patching his DSDT ( something im not beyond doing but trying this first) but he also used   boot configuration: AtiConfig=Nomascus AtiPorts=3 GraphicsEnabler=Yes. The Nomascus personality doesn't seen to fit my needs either.

 

Am i missing something. Can a DP be used for anything other then a DP? I know the Dock has DVI and a vga outputs but its not listed as a connector for my card  or should i just use a personality with a LVDS and not worry about the other outputs?

I'm still without a personality with 5 entries for a ati5000controller... but if 4 will do i'll modify the Nomascus personality.

 

edit....redsock lol

edit 2...

this thread answers all my questions

Thanx anyway ;)

Hello, I have a Sapphire GPRO 4200 graphics card. Here are the specs:

 

- low profile, single slot

- 4x Mini-DisplayPort

- 4096 MB GDDR5 RAM

- based on Radeon R7 250, detected as Radeon HD8330M

- gfx chipsets: Cape Verde PRO / Venus LE / Tropo-L

- device ID 682b, patched into AMD7000Controller.kext and AMDX4000.kext

- actually configured with "Ramen" framebuffer

- I'm using Mavericks on a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H

- Lilu and WhateverGreen are installed

- Sleep works

 

The card is working, but I can only use two monitors, the main monitor is connected directly to Displayport, my LG 3D TV is connected via an active Mini-DP to HDMI adapter.

I would like to get all four monitors working, like my Radeon HD6870 (Duckweed). This card had 2x DVI, 1x HDMI and 2x Mini-DP using active Mini-DP to HDMI adapters.
