Thanks for your advice and help.

Booted by Clover 4289 in FX-6300 hackintosh the instant reboot issue on wake up from sleep can be fixed by put FakeSMC.kext (3.5.0), Lilu (1.2.1), & WhateverGreen (1.1.2) in /S/L/E instead of EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other at 10.10.5(14F1807), 10.11.6(15G1004), 10.12GM & 10.12.6 (16G1036), but not worked yet at 10.13.2 (17C60c).

Only booted by Enoch 2905 can fix this issue at 10.13.2 up to now.

 

[Edit]

Booted by Clover 4288/4289 in Intel Z87 hackintosh the instant reboot issue on wake up from sleep can be fixed by put FakeSMC.kext (3.5.0), Lilu (1.2.1), & WhateverGreen (1.1.2) in /S/L/E instead of EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other at 10.13.2(17C60c) at last !

However it is Not always working. Sometimes OK, most times failed.

Need better solution !

It always worked if Intel HD4600 was disabled at BIOS and enabled AMD Radeon HD 6870 alone.

But it's not always working with AMD Radeon Pro 560 at 10.13.2 (17C60c).

@Mieze

YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB!!

my Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 460 works well on Sierra without a helper gpu, macpro 5,1 smbios, xeon processors.
waking up form sleep also works well.

I will try to do with High Sierra.

 

you saved my wallet from being empty.

 

but, PCI Device information on System Information is missing.

do I need any modification with my DSDT?

 

Danke schön!!

That connectors property is something read by WhateverGreen, not the Radeon kexts. If you need to edit the connectors, you need to patch the kexts.

 

 

No, because Whatevergreen.kext picks up the properties you inject und patches the kext. Without the kext they are useless.

Thank you for clearing that up for me!

Thank you Mieze this is great! Works on Gigabyte RX 460 in High Sierra 13.2 as well.

 

@Slice, I used your SSDT AMD.aml it works great for Intel is there any way to modify it for a Ryzen build? I know the kernel source is not open but would it be feasible to add AMD support in any way? The latest Bronya kernel has both Intel and AMD support. I can boot on either System with the same drive, I just change clover settings at boot manager menu.

 

Thanks again, this is great stuff.

@xtddd

 

i enable rx580 with ssdt.amd but it show AMD 9XXX 8G...how to resolve it ..thx. 

you can rewrite your GPU name in clover config.plist.
I changed the name like below

<key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>
    <dict>
        <key>KextsToPatch</key>
        <array>
            <dict>
                <key>Comment</key>
                <string>Cosmetic Modify for Radeon RX 460 for AMD9500Controller</string>
                <key>Find</key>
                <data>UjkgeHh4</data>
                <key>Name</key>
                <string>AMD9500Controller</string>
                <key>Replace</key>
                <data>UlggNDYw</data>
            </dict>
        </array>
    </dict>
</key>

you can find the model name (like AMD 9xxx) in AMD9510Contorller that is included in AMD9510Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD9510Controller. open the file with a hex editor, and find your model name which your machine shows.

@Gigamaxx

did you modify any kext-s??

I tried as same DSDT as in Sierra (lower sierra), but black screen occurred. however the signal seemed to come to my monitor.

Use this SSDT, I created it for @xtddd's RX580 and he confirmed that it works on High Sierra. Give it a try with Sierra and let me know.

No, only FakeSMCkext in Clover “Other” folder. No vanilla kexts modified. I checked with IORegistry and no lilu or Whatevergreen added, I checked S/L/E and L/E folders as well nothing but the dsdt in Clover ACPI patched folder.

Use this SSDT, I created it for @xtddd's RX580 and he confirmed that it works on High Sierra. Give it a try with Sierra and let me know.

 

@cyberdevs

I edited my DSDT like the one Mieze showed. using the dsdt, my RX460 works on Sierra (lower Sierra) without a helper gpu or additional kexts.

it don't work on High Sierra 13.1 (not beta). the black screen occurs, but a signal seems to come to my monitor.

in safe mode (-x arugument), DP and HDMI are active, DVI is not.

I think I confused you. 

 

but, thank you for your kindness. :)

 

 

anyway, do I need to rollback to Sierra (lower sierra) kexts??

Send me your edited DSDT via PM and I'll take a look. Although there are plenty of great people that are more qualified than me for the task; and can you please update your signature with your hardware specs that would make troubleshooting much easier.

 

Do you have iGFX enabled or is it disabled when you try to boot into macOS High Sierra?

 

RX460 nd RX580 have different device IDs so if you use the SSDT I mentioned it won't work because it is optimized for RX580

 

RX460's Device ID is 67EF and RX580's ID is 67DF.

 

You can also use the SSDT that Slice posted here. It should work on both Sierra and High Sierra

@Mieze

 

 I guess this is only concerning gpus which already have their device-ids included in amd kexts???  

No, any supported AMD GPU which may be driven by the Apple provided kexts can use this patch in order to solve the wakeup issue but of course you'll have select a framebuffer (and in some cases also a framebuffer patch) which matches your graphics card.

Check the framebuffer and the kext's configuration options in its Info.plist for changes in 13.1 against 12.6 as Apple most likely changed something which causes the problem with 13.1.

on High Sierra, with using my DSDT which works well on lower Sierra, my screen receives a signal from my RX 460, but the black screen occurs.

I found that window server crashed every 30 seconds.

any suggestion please??

@rioredstone

I think you should try to replace four kexts from low Sierra. The panic similar.

Which kexts should be replaced?

 

I've been trying to get my display to work on my GA-EP45-DS3R with And Radeon 7790 I have the same problem. There is no PEGP in the DSDT to apply the patch to, the SSDT doesn't work either.

But when the macOS Sierra loads with Lilu and WhateverGreen I see that the display is detected on PEGP\GFX0 in IOReg.

But when I replace the AMD8000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX4000.kext it works but there's no acceleration and the VRAM is only 7MB (This is with Lilu and WhateverGreen not the current DSDT patch method)

@cyberdevs

 

Why do you replace AMD8000Controller and AMDRadeonX4000 ?

 

You just add you device ID in them, if it's not there.

 

First: Add your device ID ONLY in AMD8000Controller and

sudo rm /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
sudo kextcache -u /
and reboot

After reboot ur GPU should be recognized BUT without acceleration.

 

The 7790 needs a patched frame buffer /System/Library/Extensions/AMD8000Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD8000Controller.

 

Meaning that you need to follow VLADs guide to decode your connectors.

 

After you have patched it you can add your device ID to AMDRadeonX4000 to get acceleration.

The 7790 needs a patched frame buffer //System/Library/Extensions/AMD8000Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD8000Controller.

Meaning that you need to peruse VLADs guide to decode your connectors by perusing your video bios.

The device ID is supported natively by macOS (0x1002665c) and it's in both AMD8000Controller.kext and the AMDRadeonX4000.kext already.

 

The problem is that on my old rig High Sierra has the black screen. I think that's because of the old BIOS structure rather than kexts themselves.

 

I can easily use this GPU on any UEFI based mainboards and it work pretty well on both Sierra and High Sierra with both methods (The one that Mieze found and with WhateverGreen)

 

I don't need to patch the connectors because they work on a single display setup but for multiple displays I need to patch them (which I already did)

P.S:

 

This is only a puzzle for me that I like to solve if possible.
