Hi to All
today I try to make direct update from 10.12.4 to 10.12.5 . my config is
GA-Z170XP-SLI / i7-6700K / 16GB-3000 / Gigabyte G1 Gaming RX480 8GB /

So I use this config and everything work with Vanila AMD kext. I thing this info will be useful for everyone.
So just I waiting to find solution to fix HDMI audio, because actually work but sound like terminator talking. :)

One more step after start you should start enable-baffin-CUs script. to active all 36 CU.

Hi All
I have updated from 10.12.4 to 10.12.5 with no issues I just updated Extension as the previous Guide for AMD Cards.

Note: I use USB Bootloader to change the Extensions in Library system after update...

everythings is just working Perfectly. So Far my fix for FCPX 10.3.3 Crashes, injected intel with IG platform id= 0x19120001 MoBo Video cabled unplugged all time (Blind Boot) otherwise will not boot properly.

I would recommend AMD users to update As i notice better performance overall. backup everything before update just in case of errors.

absolutely brilliant guide bud! followed to the letter apart for the last bit, I hex edited AMD9510 as I didn't have AMD9500.

Thanks for your hard work and effort on this guide!
