sorry, I have seen it coming, I had over the weekend very little time for OS X.

So to the AMD Radeon HD8240, the graphics card works without graphics acceleration as far as I can estimate that, here the desired ioreg file and a few pictures.

 

 

what does not work:

Ethernet card RTL8111

Wifi BCM4313 and Intel WM3945ABG

sound card

 

I will try to resolve the problems in the next few days.

This is a Kabini family card

 

Can u upload your ioreg file from registry explorer ?

 

i'd like todo a research on this card type

Yes that's a Kabini AMD Radeon HD8240 R3-Series. But you can bring to work with any other graphics card. The procedure is relatively simple an efi-string in to org.chameleon.boot.plist, a modified dsdt with graphic injection and driver patch. That's it.

Edit:

or use clover bootloader and test with fake id and efi string that should also work.

So what are the chances of getting acceleration on APUs like this or an R6 (specifically)? I'm assuming that the native AMD drivers are not yet able to work and if so, what efforts have gone on in this area?

I have tried to build an AMD Radeon drivers for R3, unfortunately it is me so far not succeeded to build an error-free kext drivers. The only away to bring the graphics card to work, I've described above in short-form.
