This is my first fully functional Ryzen Hackintosh after many many years of intel builds and when I say fully functional I mean just that.
Everything is working bar SideCar of course as there's no IGPU and I'm using SMBios iMacPro1,1 but as for everything else goes like proper sleep, Wake, All iCloud functions, Handoff, AppleWatch Unlock etc etc all works beautifully.
I have fully mapped out USB manually on all ports and there's no micro stutters or freezes or anything else strange that you can think of.

EFI Install Notes
Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following



Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.

If you need help then feel free to get in touch and do let me know how my EFI works for you.
The EFI has now been updated to the my latest version.
Changes made include,
  • AMD Patches Updated for Big Sur 11.3 Compatibility
  • Lilu 1.5.3,
  • AppleALC 1.6.0,
  • WhateverGreen 1.4.9,
  • VirtualSMC 1.2.3,
  • OpenCore Updated to Revision 0.6.9 (Big Sur 11.4 Ready),
  • USBMap is now universally correct for the X570 Pro, Pro Wifi and Ultra
  • DRM For AppleTV is now fully working,
  • Mouse now working in OpenCanopy
  • Plus other minor tweaks and changes to the config.

IMPORTANT BIOS CHANGE
  • Settings -> IO Ports -> Above 4G Decoding -> Disabled

IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE DISABLE ABOVE 4G DECODING IN THE BIOS. I HAVE DISCOVERED A SERIOUS FLAW IN THE GIGABYTE BIOS EFFECTING THE GPU PERFORMANCE AND THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IT WAS TO DISABLE ABOVE 4G DECODING IN THE BIOS AND TO ADD THE BOOT ARGUMENT npci=0x2000 TO THE CONFIG.PLIST.

Note 2 - I have decided to fully bypass OpenCore when booting into any other OS other then MacOS so now Windows and Linux no longer see your PC as a MAC and no parts of the ACPI, Patches, MacOS Details or anything else are loaded into any other OS.

Note 3 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.6. Use the new Config.plist instead.
PLEASE NOTE - The EFI has now been expanded and usb has been fully mapped to included the X570 Pro, Pro Wifi and Ultra. No changes to the EFI are needed for any of the above boards, Just add your info and away you go. If you want to use the internal intel wifi and bluetooth combo card then make sure you download and instal the correct kexts from here. https://github.com/OpenIntelWireless

Great config, thanks for such detailed information! Using this I was able to fix my mapping issue on similar config :)

I will be updating my EFI alongside OpenCore Releases so if you’re using it be sure to check in from time to time for updates.

This is one of the best posts I've seen because it's so detailed.

Any clue if this works on a Aorus x570 Elite? I'm stuck in the efi creation process and wanna try for big sur. We have similar parts, but the motherboard.

Thanks for the kind words buddy.
I would say yes it will but disable the usbmap.kext to start with as the elite lacks usb-c ports so my map will be wrong but my SSDT-XHC.aml should be fine and allow full usb so yeah give it a try with the usb.kext disabled and let me know how it works for you please? :)
Also if it boots up ok then go into your energy saver and check to make sure you have power nap and start up automatically after power failure and if that’s all there then check sleep and wake and shut down and make sure there’s no long unnecessary hangs before it does the process.

I took out the usbmap.kext and edited it off the plist. that was about it. I'm not gonna lie, even with videos, tutorials, and help, I'm definitely an idiot when it comes to stuff like this on the hackintosh in general.

Don't know if it helps,

But I have:

Ryzen 5 3600X
Aorus x570 elite
Gigabyte 5700 XT

Nope...didn't add anything. I'm pretty hackintosh illiterate even though I've taken hours and hours reading guides and videos, but I do appreciate your help. Legitimately. You're like the only dude that has ever responded to anything I've ever typed with knowlege.

@pancheesy4sheezy Download GenSMBIOS from here - https://github.com/corpnewt/GenSMBIOS
Then do the following,

Run GenSMBIOS, pick option 1 for downloading MacSerial and Option 3 for selecting out SMBIOS. This will give us an output similar to the following:

#######################################################
# iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS Info #
#######################################################

Type: iMacPro1,1
Serial: C02YX0TZHX87
Board Serial: C029269024NJG36CB
SmUUID: DEA17B2D-2F9F-4955-B266-A74C47678AD3



The order is Product | Serial | Board Serial (MLB)

The Type part gets copied to Generic -> SystemProductName.

The Serial part gets copied to Generic -> SystemSerialNumber.

The Board Serial part gets copied to Generic -> MLB.

The SmUUID part gets copied to Generic -> SystemUUID.

@pancheesy4sheezy Here you go mate,
I have entered fresh details for you and disabled the usbmap.kext.
give this a try if the steps above confuse you buddy. :)

Replace the config.plist in the EFI with this one and try the installer again.

Soon as you download it il delete the download so nobody else can use the details. :)

okay. edited! gonna test it again
Good Luck,
if it don’t work then try again using the plist I made for you in my last post.

By the way I double checked those details I created for you to make sure they are not being used by any other user and they are clean and exclusive so if you didn’t do that yourself then use my plist instead.
Clean details only really matter when your logging into iCloud.

Awesome, I’m here if you need any help mate and once your booted up check the things I said to check a good few posts ago and report back.

I can probbaly sort your USB properly out for you too And make you a map for your board. (It will run fine without it too temp)

Oh and if your not already then make sure you use the bios setting I have laid out on my main post. That’s very very important.

Wow. I cannot thank you enough. It's currently installing so it'll be awhile, but WOW. My USB Map on my Catalina was trash. I have one USB-C/lightning port on my case and before I updated to 5.4 (previously on 5.2 Catalina), it was working properly then it died. I tried my hand, but I kept on bricking my computer and I got tired of destroying it so I settled.

update/edit: Installed successfully! currently trying to mount the HD to copy the EFI over. Thanks!!!
