How to make work HD 6770 on Lion?

49 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi  guys

 

just to clarify some things

 

@ghost9685 -> you said have HD6770 perfectly working with QE/CI enabled under OS  X Lion?

 

I doubt it is possible because this card is supported since OS X Mountain Lion

 

there's 3 way to have QE/CI enabled

 

1) like you did, i.e, just edit 3 kexts with your ID (0x68BA1002)

 

2) dsdt inject method (my favorite  :P )

 

for more details, see this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/282687-radeon-hd-6770-full-qeci-mountain-lion/

 

3) flashing your HD6770 to HD5770, your graphics card will work OOB -> Out Of Box

How do i use the DSDT methond?? will that solve my QE IC problem? let me know. .:)

i don't, i have a 5750. was just letting you know that its been supported since 6.7 when you said 10.8.

 

you could also look back at netkas blog, i seen you had a 4830 back then.

First, you will always have problems with graphics on AMD cpu unless 10.9 brings a fix to the issues from using a patched kernel for amd. You should only need your id in the the controller kexts to get proper res change. Since 10.7 you should only need correct ids in kexts for support. How did you edit your plists and are you sure they are being loaded?

sorry joe75 but I don't think Rominator talked about HD6770 support in OS X Lion or SL, you know as HD 6770

 

maybe he talked about what Netkas said, i.e, to flash HD6770 into HD5770

 

I can confirm there's no support for this card before OS X Mountain Lion

 

I was able to do it via editing 3 kexts (ATI5000Controller.kext, ATI6000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext) with my ID (0x68BA1002)

 

 it's just recently that RampageDev told me that it was possible to do it via dsdt inject method (but it works only with HD5770 ID, 0x68B81002), so no more need to edit kexts

 

but this works only on ML and Mavericks

I will aks you to be more polite
 

 

I posted the kexts and don't understand why you need to argue this?

 

we don't talk about HD6870 but HD6770  :wallbash:     (like this topic)

 

HD6770 is an authentically HD5770 card, only ID's differ (0x68BA1002 / 0x68B81002)

 

this is nothing to do with HD6870

 

Just because you couldn't get it to work doesn't mean its not supported.

 

-_-   no comment

 

just because HD6870 is supported doesn't mean all HD 6xxx are supported

 Whats not polite? telling you that you're wrong?

 

and yes 6870 does mean that a lower 6770 is supported. based on 6700 being rebranded we could say it even had support prier to 6.7 :P

 

Lets also note that the mid 2011 iMac with 6750m shipped with 10.6.6

you can think you are right or do not accept you're missing some information

I accept learn from others, but I'm against the arrogance

Now if you want to continue your disinformation, please contact me via PM, stop polluting this topic

 

cordially

 

 

 

edit : like I said it, disinformation    :whistle:

and some others have 6770M too but dude!!! stop the massacre!!!

 

a 6750M has nothing to do with a HD6750 (desktop)   -_-

 

we were obliged to wait Mavericks GM release to have the support for the HD6770M  (laptop)

have you let the name of the kernel as it was?  amd_kernel?

 

be sure it's correctly named in your org.chameleon.Boot.plist

 

Kernel
amd_kernel

 

or...

 

just add it to the boot flag

 

-v -f amd_kernel arch=x86_64

no matter how you named it

 

just add the same name to the  boot flag  or into the org.chameleon.Boot.plist   ;)

 

for chimera, I never used it before, so don't sure if I could help you more with

 

but you choose what you want   ;)

 

good luck   :)

    • Have you tried adjusting the Khz in midi pref pane or editing the info plist to suit your needs. that sometimes corrects weird noise behavior.
    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!
