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, I want to install MacOS Catalina on my laptop.
      I was installed MacOS Mojave previously but i had a lot of problem, for example my wifi's card (Dell DW1820A) had a problem: My pc sometimes doesn't boot up or pc after some minutes crashed or slowed. 
      Now i want to try again to install macOS.
       
      this is my spec: 
      HP 15-AY034NL

      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Periphelrals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Periphelrals - USB Configuration - XHCI Hand-off to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - DVMT Pre-Allocated to 128M
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - It will show twice. One with UEFI prefix and another without.
      - Select with UEFI prefix. Ie.: "UEFI: Sandisk Cruzer"
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "HD".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your destination disk EFI parittion, with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      If the flash drive EFI partition of your destination disk or flash drive is unmounted:
      Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 0 for destination disk and 1 for flash drive.
       
      Then, eject the flash drive.
       
      Last step
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.14/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.6
       
      - Download and open latest CloverConfigurator
      - Open Mount EFI and click in Mount Partition in EFI Partitions list
      - Click in Open Partition that appears
      - Go to EFI -> CLOVER
      - Backup config.plist and ACPI folder to desktop
      - Go back and delete CLOVER folder
      (If you restart now you can't boot in macOS - DON'T RESTART)
      - Download latest Clover and install (link and config above)
      - Replace config.plist and ACPI folder from your desktop
       
      - Update Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext, WhateverGreen.kext, HWSensors kexts (FakeSMC, ACPIMonitor, IntelCPUMonitor, ITEIT87x) in /Library/Extensions/
      - Run:
       
      sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i /  
       
      - Install macOS Update 10.14.6 and restart
       

       
      And last but not least
