HELP TOPIC - [RYZEN] macOS 10.12.x (Sierra)

I configured my ryzen hack as all my other machines where I have fully working iCloud (siri and imessage too) with correctly generated serials and everything, but had no success on making iCloud working on my ryzen rig, it always says that there is an error when I boot, siri and imessage do not work...

It seems that the problem is related to the kernel not to the configuration.

@antrace, no iCloud/iMessage here either, but the eLicense installer ran fine on my system using the kernel dated June 17th (from ryzenpatcher) and Clover 4077 from the Ryzen tutorial thread.

 

Issues i ran into:

I'm having trouble running DaVinci Resolve 14 which spams my console with "HALC_ShellObject.cpp" related messages during (choppy) playback and beachballs most of the time using any newer kernels. I also got the USB webcam/bluetooth problems mentioned in this thread (with and without Shane's fix). 

Other than that - great work Bronya & Gigamaxx

i guess there is nothing we can do if certain things just dont run and iam pretty sure its kernel related.

 

please bronya help us :)

this is "my" problem and the installer refuses to run :(

Can you just make a copy disk of Sierra (clone, fresh install, etc..) and use RyzenPatcher? If you make a USB intstaller with Sierra 12.4 or 12.5 it works, but Sierra 12.6 has issues. The easiest way is to make a copy of Sierra on a disk and then use Ryzen Patcher and add clover bootloader.

Hi ! What problem for "install"?

I tried open installer eLicenserControl.dmg - working . 

My system sierra 10.12.6 on FX 8350. 

iam using 10.12.6 and ryzen 1600 and installer does not even run. have tried all kernels. guess its 12.6 making the problem.

i will try this. so with 12.6 it doesnt work at all then i guess?

 

thx to both of you for the reply... and special thx to bronya for the kernel. i didnt have much hope running osx again when i went with ryzen and sold my skylake system and my old mac pro :) THX!!!

so the only chance for me to get 12.5 was to get an dmg from amd-osx. i only installed sierra and didnt use the postinstall script from shanee (does it to everything ryzenpatcher does and is the dmg somehow prepatched already?)

 

so i booted up a working osx sierra and connected the drive with the fresh installed osx. ryzenpatcher does its job but seems not to copy everything. atleast i could never boot from it after patching.

 

so ryzenpatcher is working for you guys without doing anything manual afterwards?

 

isnt shanees post install script easier to use and does it do the same?

Ryzen patcher requires you to select a path for the kernel, when I used it I just added the kernel and prelinked kernel ran kext wizzard and it worked. Like you I didn't specify a path for the kernel and got an error indicating the kernel didn't have correct pathway.

You could try replacing the kernel and prelinked on the 12.5, or start over and use Shanees, I've heard it works well.

 

Did you say you have Sierra 12.6 working? Is this for RX 480 support?

ok, i will try it once again and give it the path to the kernel and lets see if it works then.

shanees script works on 12.5 (amd_osx4) but uses an older kernel which seems to be a bit slower compared to the one in (amdosx5/12.6). sadly this one doesnt run my mentioned elicenser app. not sure about the rx480, but i got my hd5450 to work without a problem making some small config.plist adjustments.

 

oh i tried to replace the kernel manually, and system didnt boot afterwards. yes, i ran kext wizard after it.

If you can get it working in 12.6 you can add the edited AMD kexts form 12.5 along with the whatevergreen and lilu kexts and the RX 480 will work in 12.6. It just doesn't work using 12.6 kexts.

ok, so i got my system working and the elicenser app is running now aswell.

 

the only thing i have to complain now about is that when i overclock my ryzen and set busratio in clover i have dropouts with my usb audio interface. the usb audio interface will only work if i dont overlock the cpu. also overclocking for me also only worked when i set cpu frequency with clover configurator. busratio flag didnt work at all...

 

any clue what this could be? usb drivers maybe? are there newer ones?

      You can boot a test kernel by naming the downloaded kernel.test Placing it in S/L/K and running sudo kextcache -u /
      You can then load the test kernel in Clover with the boot arg kcsuffix=test without removing or modifying the current working kernel.

      High Sierra is working on AMD systems using the above linked kernels and system kexts.    You can add kernel and System kext to an existing High Sierra drive or clone, or follow the USB installer and load a fresh install.    
       
      There are many different motherboards with very different bios, USB port, overclocking, and memory/sata/nvme layouts.    Fixes for one person may not work for someone else, don't get frustrated, try something new.  There may not be any one configuration that works for everybody.

      Uma "ajudinha" aki clã,
      Eu tenho a R9 270 e gostaria de mais informações de como instalar os drivers. Eu tentei arrumar os drivers aki no Yosemite, ja vi várias pessoas que conseguiram instalar a R9 270x e algumas q instalaram com a R9 270. Na primeira vez que eu inicio o hackinsoth (pra instalar) funciona tudo normal com os boot args: /amd1 npci=0x3000 (note que eu uso um processador AMD, mas atualmente não interfere mais na performance do hackintosh, visto que ele não necessita mais de um processador Intel). Depois de usar esses boot args, a instalação ocorre perfeitamente e o primeiro boot também, porém sem os drivers da placa de vídeo, ou seja, animações travando muito. Outro problema que encontro é que, sempre quando reinicio o PC depois de acabar de reparar as permissões, etc. na hora de fazer login ele trava na tela com o mouse rodando (aquela bolinha colorida) e um loop infinito nessa tela sempre acontece. Espero conseguir ajuda. Eu sei que isso também deve ter algo a ver com o FrameBuffer, mas das poucas vezes que eu consegui mudar alguma coisa nas configurações do clover, na hora de reiniciar e fazer login, o loop depois da tela de bloqueio ocorre novamente. Eu sempre usei hackintosh no meu Notebook da Dell, mas agora que tenho uma máquina que eu sei que tem suporte eu fico nervoso por não conseguir instalar tudo certinho, porque sei que o erro, com certeza sou eu quem está cometendo. Mas gostaria de ajuda ^^
       
      Minha placa de vídeo: Gigabyte Radeon R9 270 (OC Version).
      Meu processador: AMD FX4300 (funcionando com o boot arg: /amd1)
      Minha placa mãe: GA-78LMT-USB3 rev5 (tudo funcionando também, boot args: npci=0x3000)
      Memória RAM: 8GB HyperX
       
      OBS: A versão do FrameBuffer que eu preciso não aparece no kext  AMD7000Controller nem no AMD4000XController (já cliquei em "show package content" mas n achei meu FrameBuffer que provavelmente é o Futomaki, mas não tenho certeza.
       
      OBS 2: Já ativei a opção InjectATI no Clover e também ja salvei e substitui as configurações (substitui o arquivo do clover, pelo meu editado com os meus boot args, framebuffer info, etc.
       
      OBS 3: Não se esquecam de me ajudar também, se possível na correção desse bug da tela de login que eu comentei. Provavelmente após corrigir esse problema da placa de vídeo, não acontecerá mais nenhum loop, mas como também não tenho certeza, peço ajuda novamente.
