Looking for AMD 8350 Yosemite 10.10.3 Update and iCloud/Facetime Fix

Question

RRV    0

I have an AMD system (please find specs below).  I have successfully installed Yosemite 10.10.1 using Yosemite Zone and I am very impressed by how smooth and really snappy OS X runs on the 8350.  Yet I will only call this installation semi-successful for two things:  first, iCloud and Facetime do not work, and second, Yosemite 10.10.3 update seems to be unachievable for my system at this time.

 

This is not to say that I am not happy.  In fact, if my installation stays unchanged, I would still be able to live with it.  Except I think about that last final step towards a complete working system and I get restless.  I think about it all the time.

 

I have reinstalled Yosemite many times, having broken it after numerous unsuccessful attempts.  Yet I am willing to reinstall it over and over again until I find my solution.  So if someone out there knows for sure that certain solutions for certain systems simply have not yet been created, please have mercy and let me know.

 

My compliments and thanks to those who pioneered and made devotees out of all of us!

 

My specs:

 

Processor:  AMD FX8350

Motherboard/Chipset:  Sabertooth 990FX r2.0/SB950

Graphics:  Asus Poseidon GTX 780 3GB

Ethernet:  Realtek 8111F

Both iCloud and Facetime require an Intel processor to work. Also, some SSSE3 etc. scripts don't work with AMD processors on OSX. Try installing Photoshop and applying the Black and White filter. It will crash. 

 

This has to do with the kernel that you are using and some ID numbers that the OS uses to identify processors through the kernel. For some reason iCloud and Facetime ONLY work with the vanilla Apple kernel. This might change in the following years, since Apple changed the default directory for the Kernel and the folder now is named "Kernels", which means they will add more kernels or smt. They also added the option of downloading iCloud and iCloud Drive on Windows.

 

The only way to enable iCloud and Facetime is to install it on a PC which runs with the original Apple kernel, create a new user, login to iCloud and Facetime, take a time machine backup of that machine and then restore the user on your AMD hackintosh. You must then be VERY careful not to log out.

 

As far as I am concerned, there is an AMD FX kernel which works with 10.10.3. My processor is the FX-8320 and it works.

    • 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)
