[Help] Yosemite Zone on AMD FX 8350 & Sapphire Radeon 7970

Question

Recently I discovered this site and was extremely pleased to find out that your yosemite zone download is compatible with amd processors, with my first installation attempt everything was bootable. I used multibeast to install my LAN and Wireless Kexts then rebooted and again it was fine. There were a couple things missing so I went through multibeast again and finished things up but I still have a huge issue. The entirety of OSX has tons of graphical glitches, and it's extremely choppy, I'm assuming it's because OSX doesn't recognise my Graphics Card. I'm posting my specs below and if anyone could help me get this working well that would be great as I need to start some IOS development fairly soon and that's limited to OSX only.

 

CPU: AMD FX 8350 4.0GHz 8 Core

Graphics Card: Sapphire AMD Radeon 7970 GHz Edition

Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 rev.1

 

The information on my motherboard is the following,

Audio: Realtek ALC889 Codec

LAN: Realtek RTL8111E

USB: Etron EJ168

If you need it for iOS development, download Mavericks. It is more compatible with AMD hardware. The problem with Yosemite is signed kexts. The OS will not load unsigned kexts from previous versions and they also changed some IO configurations for graphics cards. This means that you need to wait for people to develop new kexts, which will work with Yosemite, almost from scratch.

 

I have the R9 280x which is almost the same as your 7970 graphics card. The way to tell if you graphics card is enabled is if the top bar on OSX is transparent. If it is white, you have no graphics acceleration. Also, AMD hardware does not work with iCloud and maybe AppStore and iMessage etc. It depends on the CPU and the kernel. So, your best bet would be building an Intel hackintosh or installing Mavericks instead of Yosemite.

 

Sadly, there is no solution currently for enabling the 7970 chipset on Yosemite.

On Mavericks it will most probably work with bootflags : "AtiConfig=Tahiti GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No"

Also, Gigabyte motherboards usually need the PCIRootUID=1 boot flag. So try that one as well.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
