Graphics Acceleration Using NootedRed

Graphics Acceleration Using NootedRed

I managed to get Big Sur running on my Ryzen PC with following specs -

  • CPU - Ryzen 7 5700G (Cezzane)
  • iGPU - Radeon Vega 8
  • dGPU - RTX 3070 Ti
  • Motherboard - Asus Tuf Gaming B550 Wifi Plus
  • RAM - 16x2 GB DDR4 3600MHz memory (dual channel)

I followed the Dortania guide to create the USB installer and included all AMD patches as suggested. I also included NootedRed kext to enable my 5700G's iGPU. I also made the following changes in my BIOS -

What’s working -

  1. Ethernet (RealTek Semiconductor RTL8125 Gaming 2.5GbE)

  2. Audio out (ALC1200 codec)

  3. USB (v3.1)

What’s NOT working -

  1. Wifi/Bluetooth (MediaTek MT7921 Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Network Adapter)

  2. Graphics Acceleration - I ran VDADecoderChecker in terminal and got below error

  1. Multiple displays - I am only getting output on 1 DisplayPort connected to my WQHD monitor

Other Issues found so far -

  1. For some reason about my mac is showing CPU as 8-Core Intel Xeon W

  1. Graphics/Displays is showing my Nvidia as primary GPU.

  1. I am getting a warning about my memory configuration as below

  1. Web browsing (specially videos) is painfully slow and graphics in some apps break a lot

I am yet to try out other aspects/functionalities of MacOS as I want to fix the GPU issue before that.

Here is my config.plist file.

Any leads/help on these issues would be great! Thanks!
