I have the same card HD5570 with devID=0x68d9

It is natively supported but you can't get right Model Name without injection.

Also I had no DVD player and sllep/wake working without careful connector patch.

My OEM is VTX. If you have the same card I may show you my config for Clover.

Else you should read common instruction and made your own patch for this card.

 

EDITED.

One time i tried to add device ID to the kext but, then error "blah blah kext not installed proeprly" started popping up al lthe time and i think the kext broke.

You should learn how to use Clover and where to download the installer beginning from the link.

I don't think the same is possible with Chameleon although I appreciated father bootloader.
