What works:

CPU: Intel Core i7 3630QM 2.4Ghz / 3.2Ghz Turbo (Native Power Management with Turbo Supported)

GPU: AMD Radeon 7670 Mobility with 2GB vRAM (Works with millions colors selected, if you select billions it will have weird color bug - use SwitchResX to do this)**

RAM: 16GB 1600Mhz

Storage: SSD + HDD on CD Tray

Ethernet: Works with patched AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext (Included)

Wi-Fi: Doesn't work. I use another card AR9285, patch is included for it in the DSDT. For other cards use the guides appropriate for them, even remove the DSDT if it makes a conflict for you.

 

Use VoodooPS2 for the trackpad and mouse and for sound, I use an external interface (Scarlett Solo) so I didn't patch AppleHDA. VoodooHDA can be used, but it's not recommended. I haven't included anything about the sound unfortunately. Good luck.

 

** Full graphics capability, but for some reason I have flashing colors if I use billions of colors selected with any resolution. Prior to 10.12, with the same GPU configuration, I had full QE/CI without any color weirdness. For now the fix is to use SwitchResX to switch the monitor you're using from billions to millions of colors. I don't see any difference to be honest, but if I find a fix, I'll update the thread.

 

Older versions of OS X?

I have a previous thread open, since I started configuring my laptop. For older versions (pre 10.9) you can click here. Long time since then, now I'm running native power management and more tweaks that help me use this laptop like a native Apple machine.

 

How-to Install?

Use any Clover method available, patch it with my files if you have the same laptop, and viola. You're good to go trough the installation, and hopefully install and run it successfully.

 

I don't have AMD GPU?

If you have the same laptop, but don't have AMD then this patch won't work for you, as the patch file for activating the GPU is in the config.plist itself. You can remove it yourself if you know how to, and use it to run the CPU natively, otherwise you'll probably bootloop or see a black screen.

 

Download patch:

*Just replace your clover files with these and it should work :]

Where exactly is the patch located in the config.plist?  I have an hp elitebook 8470p with the amd radeon 7650m and was wondering if the patch would work for me..
