Maverick 10.9 -> Mountain Lion 10.8.3 Radeon HD7850

Hello there,

as some of you might know Maverick since DP2 eliminated white screen on boot on 7XXX series. I tried to inject kexts from 10.9 into 10.8 but I failed. I am afraid it will be impossible because of some links into other kexts. Here's what I get from verbose:

I checked under ML at first which kexts from amd/ati are being loaded and than compared it with kexts loaded in Maverick. Than I deleted all amd/ati kexts in ML and copied kexts from Maverick. Ofc I repaird permissions and rebuild kextcache. 

I wonder if any of you have any ideas. 

BTW Maverick DP5 works gr8! 

 

PS. As it is HD7850 I modified plist files in X4000 and AMD7000[...] to contain dev-id 0x68191002 which is correct for my card.

 

Thanks in advance ;)

Ofc I can upload it. The only change I made was:

1. Open /S/L/E find AMD7000Controller.kext

2. Right click and 'Show package contents'

3. Go to Contents 

4. Copy Info.plist to your desktop

5. Edit Info.plist with text edit:

       a ) Use find tool to find 0x68181002

       b ) Replace 0x68181002 with 0x68191002

       c ) Save file

6. Copy Info.plist back to kext content folder

7. Back in S/L/E find AMDRadeonX4000.kext

8. Repeat steps 2-5. 

9. After all just Repair permissions and rebuild kextcache - I use Kext Utility.

 

Modified kexts attached. BTW I didn't save any vbios or modify it. It works with just those modifications.

Are you having any issues with graphics acceleration?  after doing this, my cards get detected and i get full res. but animations are laggy/buggy.. 

my card on mavericks gets detected as AMD 7XXXX 2048MB , if i do graphicsenabler=yes  then it gets detected as AMD 7850 Series 2048MB, but my animations are still laggy as if i dont have graphics acceleration.. for example when i open launchpad its very laggy and slow.. also safari tabs or the maximizing of a window animations are slow..

 

however Dock Magnifier  (the icons) move perfectly fine (smooth as they should).. i noticed that mavericks doesnt have AMDradeonaccelerator.kext..

Are you sure you did those modifications on both kexts?

Yesterday I updated my 10.8.4 to 10.9 and performed those modifications again and everything works fine. For example I can run Guild Wars 2 without a problem.

 

I remember that once I had similar situation like yours: My card was recognized but there was no graphics acceleration. The problem - if I recall - was related to wrong modification of one of the kexts listed above but I don't remember which one was that.

 

You can also try to change those values without copying Info.plists onto desktop - you can edit them under terminal using nano for example:

$ sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AMD7000Controller.kext/Contents/Info.plist 
$ sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4000.kext/Contents/Info.plist 

I did it yesterday and than used Kext Wizard to rebuild cache and repair permissions

 

Good luck :)

It's more about editing the file rather than adding something into it. 

I changed 0x68181002 to 0x68191002. So just try to find in those two files: 

/System/Library/Extensions/AMD7000Controller.kext/Contents/Info.plist
/System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4000.kext/Contents/Info.plist 

0x68181002 and change it.

It should work than. 

 

Good luck!

I reinstalled OSX 10.9 to makesure i didn't mess up my kexts,

 

Tried the above solution , changing 68181002 to 68191002, in two kexts, rebuild kext cache

 

Still No luck,

 

Mac Pro 2008 , OSX 10.9

Slot 1: Mac ATI Radeon HD 2006 XT 256

Slot 2: MSI Radeon 7850 2GB OC (device id: 6819)

Hi Pfilipp, I am warun, tried your edit worked well with GE=No But when I turn it to GE=Yes and reboot,

it shows an error at boot screen "Memory allocation error! Addr: 0xdeadbeef, Size 0x0, File: ati.c, Line: 1725

This is a non recoverable error! System HALTED!!!".

Any idea what it is.

 

MY System Spec: i7 2600k,Gigabyte Z68X-UD4-B3 with F10 BIOS, 16GB RAM, 500GB HDD (for MAC), MSI 7850 2GB GDDR5 PowerEdition/OC.

This method has been working for me all the way through 10.9.5. I can't get it to work in 10.10.1 though. Have you had any success with your 7850 in Yosemite?

      Mojave (and maybe High Sierra 10.13.6) on Asrock H370M-ITX/ac and getting RX560 to work with Intel graphics for full hardware acceleration
       
      Components used:
       
      Core i7 8700, UHD 630
      Gigabyte Radeon RX560
      Wifi/BT BCM943602BAED (DW1830) M.2
      Samsung PM961 NVMe SSD
       
      *This guide requires you to know the basics, meaning how to create a macOS install drive, installing and using Clover. There are great beginners guides out there! As always you need at least FakeSMC to boot, every other kext I’ve used is mentioned in the guide. For Mojave beta you need to be enlisted with your Apple-ID in Apple’s beta programme. What is described here may work for High Sierra 10.13.6, but I doubt it to be reliable. Even in early beta status (PB3) Mojave runs much more stable and smoother than High Sierra ever did for me.* 
       
      UEFI-BIOS settings:
       
      The board comes with BIOS version 1.20, there is an update 1.50 on the Asrock website. Usually it is good to stay updated but in this case I’ll recommend to stay on 1.20, because the 1.50 version seems to be unstable and I had restarts upon wake and things like that I couldn’t get fixed even with dsdt patches. So I just downgraded to 1.20 which runs fine.
      Settings needed: Just the usual. Disable fast boot and security boot (everything Windows-related), disable vt-d and enable XHCI hand-off. Activate multi monitor support and set VRAM to 64MB to activate the Intel IGPU. From what I’ve read most people recommend 128MB but I find the 64MB setting to be more reliable, getting artifacts with settings below or above 64MB. 128MB may be needed for 4k support, though. As for nVidia users: You may have to disable the Intel graphics. I’m using an AMD card and that is the brand to go these days since Apple decided to work with AMD
       
      Clover and power management:
       
      I recommend upgrading to 4586. It seems that Aptiomemoryfix is now working with H370 chipsets. I stayed on OsxAptiomemoryfix2 together with Emuvariable and it works. Feel free to experiment.  
      For power management with your CoffeeLake cpu you can just tick plugin type within Clover or compile a ssdt with Pikeralphas script. Mojave reports my cpu correctly as Core i7 since PB3, before that it is just “Unknown” but that is just cosmetic. 
       
      Graphics:
       
      This is the worst part. Getting the Radeon to run correctly alongside the Intel graphics took me weeks to figure out. 
       
      While RX570 and 580 run out of the box in most cases, the RX560 models often do not or at least not correctly. Apple even banned them from eGPU use. For my approach you cannot use “Whatevergreen.kext”, it simply didn’t work for me the way I needed it. Instead I added some fixes to my DSDT to set the correct number of ports used (DP, HDMI, DVI) and tell macOS to use the correct frambuffer. For those who are not into dsdt editing I added my DSDT, look at the “PEGP” section how it is done. This works for the RX560 using the “Acre” framebuffer, you can replace it with “Radeon”, that works too. Other cards need a different framebuffer and a different number of ports. You can do it!   BTW: Do not buy this Gigabytecard!!! It has some weird VBIOS on it, which caused me nightmares before I got the card to work! Buy a Sapphire card instead, they are used by Apple too.   
       
      To get full hardware acceleration for encoding videos you have to have the Intel graphics enabled alongside your AMD card. Problem is, you cannot have it running simply as a second graphics card but you’ll need to “hide” it, means telling macOS that it doesn’t have any display connectors. Otherwise you’ll have screen artifacts or in the worst case just constant crashes. This can be done by adding a certain ig-platform-id in Clover. If you use 59120003 the Intel graphics will not show up in system profiler but it is there. You can check it with iStats or HWMonitor or look if the Kaby Lake graphics kexts are loaded.  This ID makes the CoffeeLake UHD 630 to be recognized as a Kaby Lake gpu that has no display ports, is just used as a helper card.
       
      You’ll need it as a helper card for video encoding. That is what Intel graphics are used for in Macs, to support video encoding on the hardware side. You can check if hardware encoding is supposedly enabled by using MacX Video Converter Pro and VDADecoderChecker. If both say “yes” and “fully supported” this is a good start. But despite the widespread belief this doesn’t mean everything is set correctly! You now have to find out, how to get both cards working together. This is the moment where you have to choose between work and fun: Are you using FinalCut Pro for video editing or are you planning to use iTunes for entertainment? Up until this day (Mojave PB3, High Sierra 10.13.6) you cannot have both working correctly! I’ll show you how it is done both ways. 
       
      The best settings for Final Cut:
       
      Use the DSDT I’ve added with the respective AMD settings for the RX560 or modify them for your graphics card.
       
      Use SMBIOS for iMac17,1 (14,2 does work but picture over DP port is ugly, iMac 18,1/2/3 do not work) in Clover.
       
      Have AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kextin your Clover/kexts/Other folder.
       
      Until Mojave PB2 (may work on High Sierra 10.13.6):
       
      Fake-ID 3E928086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003
       
      These are the correct setting when installing Mojave (usually you will start with PB1 as the full installer).
       
      For Mojave PB3 and higher:
       
      Fake-ID 59128086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003
       
      After upgrading to PB3 you will get a black screen with 3E92 fake id because PB3 introduces Coffee Lake kexts and macOS will use these kexts instead but that doesn’t work with our ig-platform-id. So you can download the update to PB3 but before installing it you’ll need to change the fake-id to a usual Kaby Lake id. While this didn’t work in High Sierra and the first two Mojave betas (meaning you didn’t get full hardware encoding) it is now magically working with PB3. It is safe to remove AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kext after upgrading to PB3.
       
      The best setting for iTunes and why it is the worstfor Final Cut:
      Just do the same thing as for FinalCut, put Shiki.kext into your Clover/kexts/other folder and add -shikigva boot argument. You can use -shikigva=1 or 2 or 12 it will work either way. Now you can watch movies with iTunes, yay! But it has some sideeffects. You cannot use this setting when seriously editing with Final Cut.
       
      While this works by tricking macOS to use the IntelGraphics to play protected video content, it doesn’t seem to be the way real Macs are doing this. As soon as you open FinalCut you will notice (check this with iStats or HWMonitor) that the Intel graphics is not or only barely utilized, instead cpu usage skyrockets, indicating that slow software rendering is used instead of hardware encoding through Intel graphics. To make it worse the Radeon still “thinks” there is an Intel graphics helping so it does not run at highest potential. You may never notice it when using HD material with 24 or 25p because it still fast enough for that. But 50p or 4k material will most likely cause stuttering. I was astonished when I had stutters while previewing my 50p material, impossible to watch it. Thinking: What is wrong? I have a freaking i7 8700 plus RX560! Even my old hackbook with HD4000 is doing better!     
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth
       
      I swapped the Intel Wifi card that was coming with the mainboard plugged into the onboard M.2 port with a compatible Dell card. The DW1830 or BCM943602BAED. The wifi part runs out of the box, but if you want the card to appear as Apple AirportExtreme and set the country code according to your country you need to put FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext into Clover/kexts/other and add some Clover kext-to-patches by PMHeart.

      Bluetooth will work thanks to Rehabman’s kexts. You’ll need BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext OR BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. The Data.kext can be injected through Clover, just throw it into the kexts/other folder, the Repo.kext has to be installed in /Library/Extensions on your mac drive, it won’t work with Clover. I had issues with the Data.kext, Bluetooth was gone on every second or third reboot. The Repo.kext is more reliable, haven’t had any issues yet. I really don’t like the kexts to be installed in my system but I guess I have to live with it for the time being.
       
      Oh, handoff and continuity don’t work, doesn’t matter that system profiler shows them as enabled. At least it works in one way: the mac can handoff Safari pages to my iPhone, but not the other way around. Documents opened on my phone show up in the dock, but they are not loaded. 
      This issue is around since at least High Sierra and from what I’ve read Rehabman is not going to fix this, because he founds this features not worth it. I have to disagree, these are very convenient and valuable features if you work with desktop, laptop and tablet in different situations, I miss this capability very much!    
       
      Audio
       
      Audio works with Lilu.kext plus AppleALC.kext and you need to inject Layout ID=1 in Clover. For Mojave use the boot setting -lilubetaall to force the kexts to load. If you like to have DP or HDMI audio add a HDAU device to your dsdt (see mine for reference).

      Buongiorno Forum Italiano (????)
       
      Sono nuovo negli hackintosh, non so bene ancora come Funziona il tutto, ma mi serve il vostro supporto, 
       
      Premessa:  Conosco già il fatto che: L'Aspire One D255e non ha i Kexts del Wi-Fi e della Scehda video*
      (o nel caso con gli anni abbiano fatto i Kexts, vorrei avere i link se ci sono XD)
       
      In sostanza vorrei sapere se ci sono dei Kexts da installare dei seguenti pezzi hardware:
       

      Vi ringrazio in anticipo per il supporto che mi date, 
       
      Con amore,
      Utente Disperato ♥
      (Tocco di stupidaggine ci sta sempre xd)

      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 guys.

      Sometimes I am a complete noob, so I deleted two kexts from S/L/E and now my Asus Q200E laptop with OS X El Capitan boot hangs on kernel panic. I still can enter go through Clover to reach Recovery Mode and use Terminal, so I've put the two kexts on a USB pendrive and after some struggle I've managed to succefully copy them using Terminal, but the boot is still stuck on kernel panic. As I remember, these are the commands I've typed:

      mount -rw

      cp -a /Volumes/usb-stick/name.kext /Volumes/my-osx-drive/System/Library/Extensions

      Is there anything else I should do? Is anything wrong? Should I type some command else? For instance, should I type something to fix permissions and rebuild cache?

      Thanks a lot!

      Hi all
       
      I currently use an NVidia 760 with four displays: 1 x 4K; 2 x 1920x1200; 1 x 1920x1080.   This mostly works, but I am considering replacing it with an AMD GPU - likely a Radeon 7970 - for two reasons:
      I would like to add a fifth monitor, maybe even a sixth; I get small stutters and slowdowns with my NVidia, using both Native and NVidiaWeb drivers.  It is a lot better than it was with my NVidia 980Ti, but it's still not perfectly smooth as it should be, especially when I have a full screen video playing while also doing UI movements like Swipe Left A Space or Mission Control.  
      I have just been told that it should be possible to access all display outputs on an AMD 79XX GPU, possibly requiring a custom SSDT and/or radeonDeInit?  I've only ever had one AMD GPU and that was 8 years ago so I am not experienced with them.  My NVidia 980Ti has five outputs, but can only use four at once.  But I believe AMD's EyeFinity does allow it to use them all as separate displays.
       
      Before I buy the GPU, I'd be most grateful if anyone could confirm that it should be possible to run five or six simultaneous displays on a card such as the ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II (6 x DP outputs) or XFX AMD Radeon HD 7970 (2 x mini-DP; 1 x HDMI; 2 x DVI).  With one display being 4K @ 60fps and the rest 1920x1200 or 1080P.
       
      I have Googled on this a while but haven't yet found anyone discussing connecting more than four monitors to an AMD Hack  I did see that the late-2013 Mac Pro (which uses 2 x AMD FirePro GPUs) states it can support "up to 6 Thunderbolt displays".  So I know the OS can do it, it's just a question of whether a particular GPU can, and in a Hack setup.
       
      Thanks very much
