AMD Radeon 6970 working in Yosemite!

Question

CalAtt    0

I finally got this god damn thing to work in Yosemite, after getting it to successfully work in Mavericks, it only took me a week to figure this one out but finally got it. If anyone wants the how to msg me and I will help to the best of my ability, I rebooted twice after getting it to work and had 0 problems but I'll post a screenshot soon. You will need the 6970 package.pkg and Native 6970 package.pkg Not sure which one I used to get it working but you can fiddle around with both I'm pretty sure I used 6970 package.pkg, you will also need to enter single user mode and enter a few commands afterwards to actually get the card working.

 

 

The commands in single user mode are, 

 

/sbin/mount -uw /

kextcache -update-volume /

kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel ( If you get an error segmentation fault 11, just retype this line till you don't get it.)

kextcache -system-caches

 

credit for these command lines goes to SloeberGJ

 

 

Voila your 6970 SHOULD work in Yosemite. If it doesn't you might need to fiddle with your SMBIOS ( mine is Mac Pro 3,1), and your boot args, I currently have no boot args so...

 

Here are the packages:  

http://www.mediafire.com/download/328zmdddhio9rm5/Native+6970+Package.pkg.zip          <------ Native

http://filesdeck.net/files/6970-package-pkg-zip-7v5rar-full-version-mediafire-download.html   <------- Modified, (Think this is the working one under Yosemite, be patient and your 6970 WILL be up and running.)

Is it possible to use this card in a single gpu environment or do you still need a 2nd gpu to allow this to work?

also, if I don't need the 2nd gpu, how would I go about installing this? I have a nvidia gtx560 right now but am wanting to use the  6970. any advice?

    • 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)

    • Hi, I am new at this, I installed maverick on a Lenovo g460 and everything ok but when I try to start appear a screen and say "system uptime in nanoseconds..." , I use -x and -x and others but I can't solve my problem. Sorry for my English. Thanks 
    • I have faced that problem to however does not  help with my current situation. ... I deleted other partitions and created Jhfs+ on the MBR no problems at all Still remains.
