In HS it's that 9300 controller that prevents the kext patches we used in Sierra. And they still haven't included the kexts similar to the Vega for the fury / nano.

In the end I gave up and bought a Vega. Works great.

I tried deleting the 9300 controller kext and using the old patches. Might have promise for someone less noob than me.

Yeah, 

I tried also to delete AMD9300controller.kext but it didn’t effect the result. 

Also added patched Sierra 10.12.6 AMD4100.kext to HS S/LE but still nothing! 

And same result with AMD9000Controller.kext modification. 

Not working!

I think i'll stay with my AMD Fury for a for a while, because it is still quite competitive in performance  vs. Vega. And also because it works fine now with Sierra 10.12.6.

It would be great to have support for HS?!

I got it to work on ryzen 10.12.6 with my rx 480 no more helper card! thanks to Gigamaxx!

 

The first thing i did is replace my efi with the efi he provided. Also copy over the nvram.plist 

Go and find 9500 and 9520 in  system/ library/extentions and right click and select show package contents. Once at a time. Go into content folder and delete info.plist for both these kext. Once your done go ahead and 

 

copy over these four kext  system/ library/extentions  AMD 9510Controller.kext AmdRadeonx4100) replace these two. Copy these three files lilu ,whatever green and the last lilu.ketx.dSYM 

right after use kext wizard!!!! if you wait to long your pc will shut down.. so do it asap. 

 

once everything is good you have to boot with the argument lilubeta and thats it!! full acceleration!!! 

 

 

No more helper card in 10.12.6 ryzen lol

Yes the vega's drivers aren't the best right now, but they are improving.

Tonight I was experimenting with overclocks and my ram at 3800 gave me another 20 points on cinebench open cl, CPU at 4.7 gave me another 10 points, so the vega is way more sensitive to CPU and memory speed than my old system. Quite fun really.

Aside from all that, the Vega is better with my CAD software than the Nano. A bit closer to the smoothness of the quadro. maybe it's just 16gb instead of 4...

So I just updated to HS b7. And appears that AMD4000.kext and AMD4100.kext went back!

Will take tomorrow to look more closely! 

Anyway looks quite promising!

For whatever reason, I cannot get my MSI Armor OC RX 480 to output more than 1 screen at a time on High Sierra. It works perfectly fine on Sierra using no patches. Is there any way someone could help me here? I have no idea what to do or post for someone else to diagnose.

I'm new to a lot of this information, so bare with me.

 

I'm using a Sapphire R9 270X 4GB card, and prior to these kexts, I was simply using the Futomaki framebuffer to get macOS up and running. Everything worked pretty well, but I didn't have full acceleration (low game FPS, and low benchmark scores) and my GPU was displaying as 7XXX as expected. 

 

After removing the framebuffer edits, and adding the new kexts, my card is properly displaying as the 270x, however I still seem to have the same performance issues. I'm not exactly sure if whatevergreen is supposed to be fixing this, or if this is something else. Anyone have an potential ideas/fixes?

Hi friends,

 
I have a chance with my old ATI graphics cards and WhateverGreen + Lilu in High Sierra?
 
1. Dell Optiplex780 with HD5450 (no EFI GPU bios, no metal support, no Injector iGPU available)
2. real MacPro3,1 with real HD5770 (real EFI GPU Bios, no metal support, no Injector iGPU available, no Clover)
 
With Sierra both have no problems.
With High Sierra and real Kext ---> Blackscreen
 
Both work with High Sierra very very well with Rollback Kext's from the Sierra:
AMDRadeonX3000.kext, AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle, IOAccelerator2D.plugin and IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext
 
Unfortunately this solution is not update safe.
 
Is WhateverGreen only for ATI's new generation and Metal-supported graphics cards?

Hello. I wanted someone to input the correct information from my GPU.

 
Device: 6819
Vendor: 1002
SUB-Vendor: 1458 (Gigabyte)
SUB-Device: 255A
 
Here without this information, it is identified as AMD Radeon R9 270, being a 7850 HD.
 
And will it be possible to leave the "IOFBNeedsRefresh" key false on all outgoing ports?
 
Thank you friends

Hello!

I have successfully installed Sierra 10.12.6 on my system.

 

Im having a MSI R9 380 4GB GPU. I had to install with a helper card, boot with it. Install clover and use WhateverGreen + Lilu. Change back to my 380 GPU. And voila! It worked. I can use 2 monitors with no problem.s 1080p. One thing that I noticed though in "About this Mac"my card is getting recognised as "AMD Radeon R9 285 4096 MB"

Also, another thing that I noticed. My first boot with helper card, my sound worked perfect. it recognised all the "Outputs". But when I enabled the "WhateverGreen" my sound stopped working. And the only thing I get as "Output" devices, is this: http://imgur.com/9ddqT0L

 

Everything works except this. Please help me.

Best regards Gustaf.

This looks like audio output throgh the HDMI and or Displayports of the card. Were you using motherboard audio before?

Provide DPCI Manager->PCI List screenshot with subvendor an subdevice id's of your card.

Yes, but the HDMI sound is not working either. And yes, i used my headphones plugged into The front panel. Green + pink. Both sound and microphone worked. And i could see all my output devices in The sound manager.

Provide DPCI Manager->PCI List screenshot with subvendor an subdevice id's of your card.

 

Will do! Im at work atm, so will do that when i come home.

I've successfully installed both 10.12.6 as well as 10.13 DPs. WhateverGreen runs great on 10.12.6, but I can only get 1 of the 2 4K monitors to output any signal at once on 10.13.

 

I have tried patching connectors via DSDT, but I have not been able to figure this one out. Using WhateverGreen in 10.13, IORegistryExplorer shows that there are 2 monitors connected, but only one has the property 'display' beneath the AMDRadeonFramebuffer. The other output, if I select ATY,AMD,RadeonFramebuffer@1, has the property 'display-training-fail' whereas the working display and correlating ATY,AMD,RadeonFramebuffer@0 has the property 'dpcd-post-training'.

 

Using virtually identical config.plists, not injecting anything via clover in regards to graphics, and plugging, unplugging, and replugging the DP cables, I cannot get the second display to work. If I boot without the primary display in, the second one will become primary. I am at a loss here. Is there anything you can think of that I can try?

 

I am using a Z170X-UD3, 7700K, and MSI RX 480 Armor OC.

Hi, another noob connectors question :P

I put my GA R9 390x into the rig for a certain reason (the vega is crashing my CAD software - hardware acceleration I think) and I can't get it working. It's showing up fine and showing a monitor connected, but black screen.

I've tried all the outputs on the GPU.

edit: Running HS beta 7 and rig as below - X299, vega, 390x.

here's a debug log :)

On the plus side, it's the first time I've seen my GPUs correctly named!

Brilliant kexts guys.

At 10.12.5 did you get KP due to WhateverGreen.kext ?

In FX-6300 hackintosh I had this issue as reported by someone else here (Post# 41).

I found that if ApplePS2Controller.kext was replaced by VoodooPS2Controller.kext which can fix previous KP by WhateverGreen.kext in FX-6300 hackintosh at 10.12.5 or 10.12.6.

Will be in next release. 

Wow!!! Thank you soooo much dude!

 

First of all I replaced the old one with the one you gave me. My GPU got recocnized as the one I have, and one other thing my OS booted ALOT faster. Dunno why, but thanks for that. Lol. Some new sound devices came up. But sound still didn't work. 

 

I decided to do a fresh install, since I have tempered with other sound kexts to get it working. Made a fresh install, put you kext in clover. and BOOM everything now works as it should.

 

Finally, for the first time I have a fully working Hackintosh. 

 

Thanks a lot again. Big ups to you.

 

Best Regards, Gustaf

Hi all, and excuse my English, I have an Asus H270 mini-iix with i7-7700 and rx 560 4GB SMSBIOS iMac18.2 used Sierra 10.12.6
To run the RX 560 I used Lilu.kext 1.1.7 and WhateverGreen.kext 1.0.4 I can have graphics acceleration and dual monitor with HDMI audio but the fan of the video card stops then reboots and refuses .... While with linux mini 18.2 always keeps on like any other cards ... .. I put a video to better understand the problem .......

Usually on modern cards the fans should spin up under a heavy load. It is based on temperature. Try to run Unigine Benchmark it should spin up immediately after start.

Question about FAQ: 

  • What are the hardware requirements for WhateverGreen?
    Full UEFI without CSM. You are strongly recommended to flash a UEFI-compatible ROM unless your card already has it. Failing to do so will quite likely result in issues in multi-monitor configurations and possibly even in single-monitor configurations. It may stil work for non-UEFI motherboards, try at your own risk. There are known issues when using 2 or more GPUs in multi-monitor configurations

Does in this case UEFI talk means UEFI GPU ROM or UEFI Mainboard?

I ask, because i may buy an AMD GPU for my non UEFI Mainboard (no helper GPU in CPU) running Nvida GPU / 10.11 (10.12 also works) BUT! i use CHAMELEON, not Clover.

Can that .kext work together with non UEFI Mainboard and non UEFI Bootloader = Chameleon?

      Hi there,
       
      So I have my Windows computer, used a USB with Clover setup to boot into Mojave OS that I installed on the SD card in the computer. The world was a great place and all was well!

      Then I did the steps to partition the pc system to now include the additional drive that I would put Clover on. Here's where I messed up: Instead of directly copying over the full Clover folder into the EFI folder of the new drive (which just had the Boot & Microsoft folders in it), I replaced the EFI's boot folder with Clover's boot folder. So the EFI folder now contains a Microsoft folder, a Clover folder, and Clover's Boot folder only.

      Now, I only can access the Clover boot up menu, the macOS, but no Windows at all. Even if I go into BIOS and pick Windows Boot Manager or Partition 1 for the start up, I get a black screen for both. I can still access the macOS as well as Shell, but I don't know what that does other than displaying all of the yellow text fly by..

      Is there a kind soul out there that can help me get Windows back to boot? Keep in mind I'm a bit of a newbie here so laying out the common-sense steps would be helpful!

      Thank you in advance!

      Hello everyone,
      I found a guide on how to install Catalina on Lenovo M920q, everything works well but the installation is freezing up.
      The USB bootable drive is a recovery one with internet based installation. The internet is working well on the pre-installation setup (I tested it, when you can use the utilities).
      The installation is freezing whether I am installing the macOS or not.
      I've attached my EFI partition so you can check if there's anything to add.
      Will realy appreciate any kind of help (quit noob to the whole thing).
      Thanks in advance and stay safe!
       
      NOTE: I did followed up the troubleshooting guide of OpenCore installation forum and the answer was to add the  NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to the kexts and configure it on the .plist file.
      This is the original EFI folder: EFI.zip
      Thats the one with the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext added: EFI.zip

      run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 If no mouse, install all voodoo kexts using Kext Utility Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other. BIOS Setup
      Disable Secure Boot INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
      Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup. To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete. You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw Boot Entry Setup
      Due to the fact this BIOS is locked down pretty heavily, reccomended to use Windows to find a free tool to add UEFI boot entries Messages and Facetime
      Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support. Headphones and Audio
      All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio no internal mic Credits
