Who said we need testers? The screenshot was a proof of concept and a sneak peek of our upcoming project which will be released soon.

@Visual Hello!. I've been trying really hard not to upset you all over at Noot.inc on GitHub. Because you do amazing work and I'm a big fan. But yesterday I got banned again, well my incognito account got banned, SalmonPete, (I have many emails to use up so it's ok). I was only offering advice to someone who probably shouldn't have said 'BUG'!. I'd love to help test, but ChefsKiss seems very sensitive or just intolerant of others.

The NootedRX project looks great. But that link doesn't have any requests for testers.

you can post and report bugged that u find or u can requrest ExtremeXT to help testing for it. I'm on with him but not able to test today. More ppl testing will get more information to help to get debug faster. One or 2 person testing is not enough (b/c each system might have different bug to report) and yesterday I test almost drove crazy b/c of the amount of restart PC is kinda crazy.:D:D.

Wow! Never thought I'd see the day. The level of knowledge and expertise for this kind of thing is way above me, but how is this possible? Is it because Navi 22 is similar enough to Navi 21 and 23 that it was "easy" enough to work their magic to get it working?

... and a follow-up... does this mean something like Navi 31 (7900XT/XTX) would theoretically be possible? Or is that still just in my dreams lol

If I understand correctly the NootedRX developers are Porting the Linux AMD drivers for the Navi 6000 series of GPUs, to create a kext that works in macOS. Way above my knowledge too.

As to whether they will port the AMD 7000 series drivers from Linux, that is unknown.

Let us all just be grateful/thankful for what is currently being offered. Don't start badgering the Developers, as that would be seriously rude and show a complete lack of thought and appreciation for the work they have already undertaken.

I agree, the Nootinc team are producing incredible results. Last thing they need is someone like me, (SalmonPete ;), bothering them with stupid questions. I should know I’m on my second ban!.

Porting the whole Linux driver is harder than it sounds. Navi 22 is very similar to Navi 23, so we patched out the differences by cross-referencing to both the Linux and Windows drivers, which finally resulted in an accelerated Navi 22 experience. The code is open source, you can read it for more information on the process.

Would you mind sharing a link, I’d like to have a read.

I am very sorry. You are definitely right. I hope that my curiosity is not misinterpreted as a request! I think the idea of a 6700xt, which was not intended to be supported, now working with acceleration was just amazing, and then one thought led to another and I probably should've resisted commenting.

And I am absolutely grateful for folks who do so much to help folks do this sort of thing. Actually, Edhawk, many of your posts throughout the years have contributed to my current understanding and a working machine, so thank you very much!

Anyway, I apologize for being out of line!

Any tips with this kexts??
I have removed WhateverGreen.kext and enable NootRX.kext in config.plist. But always got stuck in this scene.
SMBIOS MacPro7,1

Boot fine without NootRX.kext but with no Graphics Acceleration

isn't 7000 support part of the roadmap though?.

I'm all for support being given by the team on Telegram but the forums here are indexed. If someone searches for any issues they're having it'll come up on Google etc. If a solution is posted it'll help users with a similar problem :)
