You do have SIP disabled, right? You're not going to be modifying any kexts while that's active. Typically when you install a new OS, SIP gets re-enabled.

SIP is disabled.

I'm not too fussed. It hasn't even made it to public beta yet and Sierra is working fine.
I've got it running well on my backup X99 (12 core) xeon with an HD7970, and I'm liking that it doesn't need anywhere near as many patches or kexts to work.
edit: Running even better with the R9 380x, both oob without ATI injection or fake ids or anything.

the 10.13 was quite easy to install over 10.12. nvme is about 10% faster on my 960 evo, the new disk format I suspect.

No acceleration on my Nano though.
The AMDRadeonX4500HWServices.kext isn't loading.
The AMD9300Controller.kext is.

Any ideas?


Maybe try to spoof 0X73001002 into AMDRadeonX4000 ?
Strange thing is Fiji is present in AMDRadeonX4000GLDriver, has a dedicated controller (AMD9300Controller.kext), but no reference in Graphics accelerator kext and plist. (AMDRadeonX4000.kext),


Is it a volcanic island card ? There is also references in 4100 and 4200 kexts.

It's like a section for AMDRadeonX4000_AMDVIGraphicsAccelerator in AMDRadeonX4000.kext is missing

Looks like a complete mess tbh
   

I have no idea what I'm doing and it even looks like a mess to me! haha.
In Sierra I could modify the X4000 kext and get acceleration.
In high Sierra any modification of the kext breaks it! Evidently Apple has decided to beef up kext protection and signing. Or hopefully that's present only in the beta and when it goes public it'll be able to be modified... Or they might fix R9 nano / fury - 0x73001002 kexts...

The takeout over this is that we might have to find another way to modify kexts that live in S/L/E

If apple releases a new firmware for the 2010 models to support APFS, do you guys plan on remaking your 4,1 to 5,1 flasher to use the latest firmware?

Okay guys. I must admit I was a little bit wrong. Now tested intel HD Graphics 5000 and it seems it utilizes Metal there for both WindowServer and Preview apps.

RC1 seems to be intel-only metal gui.



Presence of both default.metallib in used resources and IGAccelCommandQueue is a good evidence.

It looks like currently gui uses both Metal and OpenGL, because removing openGL driver ( file /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelHD5000GraphicsGLDriver.bundle/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelHD5000GraphicsGLDriver ) leads to no HW acceleration for GUI, WindowServer stops using Metal (not even loads HD5000MTLDriver), but little cube Metal app still works HW accelerated.
Interestingly, in Sierra the window server is no longer associated with a commandQueue at all, only an GLContext (tested on an intel HD6000). Like if Apple had abandoned the idea of a window server based on Metal. However, many apps in Sierra (even old apps that were not updated in years) are now associated with commandQueues on all supported GPUs. I guess this has something to do with core graphics being based on Metal.
I'm curious to know if the window server ONLY uses Metal in 10.13, and whether it does on all supported GPUs rather than just intel's.

Certainly appears to flash ok. I have the output of a (re)flash today, the existing details will not match, as in desperation I tried someone else ROM to see if it made any difference. Then after flashing, I read the ROM back in again, to diff against cardname.rom.efi.rom. I'm surprised to find they differ.
Code:
C:\Users\lundm\Downloads\atiflash_274>AtiFlash.exe -f -p 0 cardname.rom.efi.rom
New SSID: 0428
New DeviceID: 679A
New Product Name: 679A.15.17.0.1.AS02
New BIOS Version: 015.017.000.001.000000
Flash type: M25P10/c
20000/20000h bytes programmed
20000/20000h bytes verified

Restart System To Complete VBIOS Update.

But, if I program the original ROM to position 1, I can successfully boot on position 1 (a first since I started flashing)

Inquiring minds want to know !

We have a 1080 and a Titan-Xp that boot right into Win 10 on nMP, no mods needed.

Apple has added some drama to the game with their High Sierra antics, but we shall prevail.

I was scared the iMac Pro is about to replace Mac Pro, but thankfully it won't. We should see a dual CPU machine (probably up to 2x 18 cores + HT = 72 threads) with dual 10 Gbps Ethernet and 2x or more PCI-Express 3.0 (maybe even 4.0 or 5.0) slots.
