AMD Mojave Kernel Development and Testing

 

This thread is only for the purpose of development and testing the kernel and it's source for AMD on Mojave. Any support questions regarding installation or post install will be removed.

When reporting tests with a kernel uploaded please provide the following,

 

  • Output from Terminal of " sysctl -a " when possible.
  • CPU and any OC settings.
  • Graphics card including Manufacturer name.
  • If you are booting an install USB with a test kernel, please say how you made the installer.

 

 

Thanks,

Shaneee

Should I just replaced original kernel, prelinkedkernel, & IONetworkingFamily.kext with these 3 modified files at 10.14.1 cloned Intel partition ?

Or need extra procedure for these kernel.bits & prelinkedkernel.bits ?

I got the mojave installed but the issue is that it reboots after welcome screen.

seems its related to IONetworkFamily kext issue .

@ydeng you seem to have fixed this issue in your kernel that you posted on amdosx ! Can you post how you fixed it.

Here's a test kernel. Currently boots my system. Only for 10.14.1. You'll need a Mojave system to compile a prelinkedkernel. However if needed I can upload a prelinkedkernel for installers if you make one from 10.13.

Mojave_AMD_Beta.zip

Thanks but unfortunately it got reboot in both Ryzen 1700X and FX-6300 hackintoshs.

Thanks but unfortunately it got reboot in both Ryzen 1700X and FX-6300 hackintoshs with these new testing kernels and prelinkedkernels.

Could you share how do you got it booting to desktop ?

Thanks, but it will rebuild prelinkedkernel during booting with kcsuffix=test, then reboot before login desktop.

Very close to working now !

 

If it tried to rebuilt the pk it won't touch the prelinkedkernel.boot file unless you've got kernel.boot. This way that one is safe. Also it's kcsuffix=boot not =test :P

@Gigamaxx How's it running for you? Runs great for me minus the wireless networking.

 

It took a bit of wrestling to get it to boot at first.   Graphics issues until I threw in the trusty old r7 265.    I kept tuning into black screen (IOScreenlockstate).   My wireless lists as connected status  but safari, AppStore and updates won’t connect.   

 

This is using the kernel, IOnetworkingkext, and prelinkedkernel bits (renamed to pk).   

 

@jsl2000 have tried single user mode?

Tested Atheros w4800 using the HS A40kext fix, and brcm 4360.   They show connection in system report but the apps won’t open.   Seems like a secruity issue?  

 

I purchased Geekbench which is why it let me run the bench but it won’t open to their browser.   Graphics compute bench wouldn't run.   At first I was getting a lot of system freeze then I used Cybedevelopers nvram/cache tool and it smoothed it out.

Did you only test on Safari? I had the same issue. Used Chrome and it works :D

Thanks but booted with kcsuffix=boot it still got reboot before login desktop at 10.14.1 and reboot just after login desktop for several seconds at 10.14.2.

I'm not sure whether it's due to GPU (AMD 7950) issue.

I'll test with other compatible GPU such as Nvidia GT-730 or GTX-680 as soon as possible when I travel back 3 days later.
