i went back a tried again..

 

 

10.10/10.10.1 UPD To 10.10.2/3 Patch

amd-10102-upd_zpshebiiwt5.png

 

looks like you already fixes all CPU problems, i went back and test couple of times, sometimes it random boot in Opcode errors once awhile and its seems your latest kernel vs Bronya rc6 benchmark faster than his thats a good start..and i say this in my perspective i have FX cpu and he does too..but the matter you fixes the FSB corrections for overclockers and 990fx chipsets stability..i appreciated your hardwork,,still need lot more people like yoursevles can figureout of making drivers and kexts since hackers is not going to wait for apple fix things on next patches...maybe we should all starting hacking on drivers next since kernels is not going help any much since already running 100% on my AMD FX correctly now its figure out why the GPU slowdowns with apps and Benchmarks than last Maverick version was running lot faster in those areas..

Ok .
Fixed tsc.c , rtclock.c ,opemu.c and trap.c.
Is tested and is normal works without "opcode invalid ".
But it can get problem sound ! On FX-cpu  sound fine , but on old-cpus have problem sound . 
I will try did plan - this tsc.c will read fsb from bootloader ;) .

 

attachicon.gifmach_10.10_all_amd_rc6.zip

 

P.S. I tested vlc player version 2.0.9 on real iMac12,2 . I indeed received problem sound also how on AMD !!! 
Because vlc player version 2.0.9 - this vlc_player  bad ! 
VLC version 2.1.2 is normal .

 

Hi Bronya, the file isn't available anymore... can you repost?

 

Thanks!

Thanks for such an excellent kernel and kext which are working in 10.10.2 and 10.10.3 for my AMD Hackintosh with Asus M4A78 Plus MB, AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+, and Nvidia GTX 680 GPU.

WOW!!! Awesome!!!

I installed 10.10.3 beta via App Store and it works just perfect!

And most importantly, I don't know how but iCloud now work perfect. Before update I can get sync in all apps with iCloud, but in System Preferences it still wanted that I confirm my iCloud account with password and says that my ID valid but not iCloud account.

But after update My iCloud begin works fully for all 100%!!!

Thanks!!! Great kernel and kext!

Thank you very much for your excellent kexts (no npci kexts) which solved my AMD Hackintosh problems in Mavericks 10.9.5.

But I found these seem not compatible with Yosemite 10.10.1.

Can you provide newer kexts for Yosemite 10.10.1 ?

Hi !

This kernel rc7 read busFreq from only bootloader ! 

In trap.c delete "invalid rdmsr" and implement in opemu.c !

Bootloader chameleon version 2594 !

 

Please try !

Finally ! :thumbsup_anim:

 

With 1010-kernel-REV-8N and 10102-UPD-Patch-pthread.kext, my Athlon 64 x2 3800+ works good with 10.10.2 and latest Security Update !

 

Great works and many thanks to all of you :thumbsup_anim:

 

I just still have a little anoying problem with Time Sync… The clock doesn't update as it should. But I can manage that as it's not essential.

Hey. the clock problem sounds like the fsb is set incorrectly. note: cpu fsb and pci bus speed are normally linked unless you can lock/set the pci bus speed manually (impacting connected devices) did you try clover, it auto detects fsb well. maybe you just need to set your fsb manually with your current bootloader / kernel configuration? hope you work it out!

 

btw incredible work here guys!

Hey. the clock problem sounds like the fsb is set incorrectly. are you overclocking? did you try clover, it auto detects fsb well. maybe you need to set the fsb manually? incredible work here guys

 

No overclocking. And yeah, I tried Clover but it won't even boot on my HP dc5750. It always stops at the Maintenance screen (or whatever his name).

 

try boot flag -cpuEFI

 

Thanks, I'll try this.

 

Update : No change with this boot flag :(

Update 2 : added fsb=800 busratio=10 in kernel flags but still no changes. BTW, is VoodooTSCSyncAMD.kext still necessary with this new Kernel ?

Amazing; he's done it again!  :w00t:

 

'just tried Bronya's rc7 kernel on the 10.10.1 installation I had not touched for months on my old dual-core "Paxville" Xeon-based Dell Precision 670. 'was previously running Bronya's kernel rc2.1. Anyway, the new results are just... brilliant!

  • I no longer have the graphics corruption on Yosemite desktop
  • screenshots are no longer single red/blue/yellow/b&w colour
  • I can safely edit screenshots in Preview and save them without getting a corrupt picture in the end
  • Safari no longer crashes me out and runs without graphics corruption
  • Chrome running Ok too and without graphics corruption
  • Youtube online videos running Ok
  • Audio working Ok (I'm using one of those (shamely cheap) PnP USB audio devices)
  • I can click/double click in top or middle of file/app icons to open/launch them, no longer need to target the bottom of the icons
  • Desktop/Screen Saver PrefPane is by far and large trouble free, although the occasional background corruption prevails
  • I no longer appear to need NullCPUPowerManagement kext
  • Sleep & Wake remain fully natively operational

Seemed to boot faster too. Still using Chameleon r2401. Unlike under Mav, I do feel some lag but this is a 10yr old piece of s***t dinosaur workstation! I'm totally chilled!  :yes:

WYSIWIG = What You See Is What I Get !!! Still running Duran Keeley's fixes for AppStore but wondering if I still need them...

 

Off to try Tora Chi Yo's own kernel now... winner gets a BJ... Erm... not!  :P

Well, here's the verdict: Bronya 1 / Tora Chi Yo 0

 

Got "invalid user opcode (64bit): c4 e2 7d 18 c0 c5 fc 11 01 48" error message with Tora Chi Yo's kernel. So, clearly not supporting legacy Intel "Paxville" Xeon platform.

'was able to update to 10.10.2 using Bronya's rc7 kernel + axmanA's patched IOPCIFamily kext (to fix my usual desktop init problem with nVidia card). nVidia's web driver being updated too (to v343.01.02f02)... Removed Duran's AppStore fix too.

      Hi all,
       
      I'm using ESXI 7.0b (did use 6.7 to try but with no difference).
       
      Right now on Catalina but I can't seem to try to get GPU (RX580) working properly.
       
      I pass it through to the VM(tried with windows before with no problems) and it appeared just as pci-device with no name.
       
      After that, I've applied whatevergreen + lilu kexts and it does properly recognize it under system report however that's all there is. It's listed at GFX0. See attached images.
       
      No hardware acceleration. Monitor also not turning on using either DP/HDMI. 
       
      Since it is being passed through to the VM, it seems that the problem is not on ESXi side but on macOS side. 
       
      Has anyone has been able to pass through an AMD GPU to ESXI VM? Can anyone suggest some pointers as to where I could find some solutions to this problem?
       
      Thanks!

      Currently my install is 100% working except that so far I have only been able to get one of my 1080p monitors working with a MiniDP to HDMI cable. I currently am getting a second MiniDP to HDMI cable but for now I am stuck with a DVI to HDMI cable.

      The monitor that is working is plugged in via the MiniDP to HDMI. The monitor that isn't working is using the DVI cable. However I also tried switching it to HDMI to HDMI which had the same result. The monitor wakes up but it's black. However for whatever reason, both monitors are still recognized in system preferences and hackintool.

      I know all my cables are good and work because I updated from an install of El Capitan (which I still have on it's original SSD just in case this install fails) as well as a Windows install. Both monitors worked fine on El Capitan for literally years. El Capitan is just too old now and I need to update to keep up with software updates.

      Problem reporting files should provide needed info about how I've configured this install. Build is in my signature.

      I'm an happy user of a x99 built hackintosch since 6/7 years using it mainly for photoshop and fcpx ... Using new camera with better resolution and video in ProResRaw , my built start to struggle a bit 
      I'm thinking of making a new built and seeking for advices for this new built that I want evolutive and last at least as long as my previous built 
      I'll use a SSD M2 forth Generation so I need at least 2 to 3 SSD M2 PCI x4 slots
      then which proc to use , I was thinking about the AMD Ryzen 9 3900xt or the Intel I9 10900k ( don't have the money for AMD threadripper ) if you have better idea I'm really open to it as long as you explain it to me 
      then which chipset should I use:
      for Intel  , should I go to Z490 or X299 or W480
      For AMD , I think I have only the choice of X570
      I always used Gigabyte motherboard so it will be naturally my first choice but again I'm open to any suggestion
      I need at least usb 3,1 Gen 2 and TB3 is not necessary but an option and can be add later on with a PCI Card I think
      So I'll be pleased o read your opinion and the choices that you'll do for the purpose of this built 
      thanks in advance

      Hi
       
      I recently built my 1st ryzentosh.
      I also used Opencore (0.6.1) for the 1st time and followed the install guides on Dortania.
       
      Now I need to map my USB ports and apparently it's not achieved the same way on AMD platforms compared to what I was "used to" on Intel platforms.
       
      The guide on Dortania is a bit confusing to me since there is information that is not clearly labelled as "for Intel" or "for AMD" and I thus don't understand very well what I should and shouldn't do.
       
      Can anyone give me advice or point towards as comprehensive tutorial intended for AMD-based builds.
       
      Thank you very much in advance for your help.
       
      Best,
      -a-

      Hi everybody. I'm stuck here and after a few days I'm really not able to boot.
      My setup is the following:
       
      CPU AMD Ryzen 9 3900x
      GPU Aorus RX 5700 XT
      MOTHERBOARD AsRock x570m Pro4
      SSD 1 Corsair MP600 1TB
      SSD 2 Gigabyte Aorus NVMe 1TB
      RAM Crucial Ballistix 2x32GB
      WIFI BCM94360CD

      Error message from Bios attached to this thread.

      Thanks to anyone willing to help me. I've tried different open core versions, adding and removing a lot of kexts, keeping essentials ACPIs, setting as true or false different .plist settings that I saw resolving similar issues as mine but nothing seems to work.
