Help! AMD/ATI Radeon R9 290 (non X) on my Yosemite 10.10 Hackintosh

Question

Hello!

?
Being the owner of a Retina MacBook Pro, I can't really explain what made me decide to attempt to install OS X on my PC but over the years I've experimented with the various Linux distributions on my PC so this probably fell under that category!
?
Anyway, after following a bunch of guides I found online, I have managed to get Yosemite installed on my PC, network, sound and almost every other piece of hardware is functioning.
?
I got stuck when trying to get my ATI Radeon R9 290 (non X) working. I found that a lot of people had managed to get their 270's and 280's working fine and on occasion, a couple of people had managed to get their R9 290 (non X) working.
?
I've tried the couple of suggestions I found from people who had got their R9 290 (non X) working however I am still having issues.
?
Currently I am using the graphics chip built into my CPU which is working well but I would really prefer to get the dedicated card working.
?
With regards to my system configuration;
?
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k Sandybridge
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance
MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe
HDD: OCZ Vertex 3 SSD
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon R9 290 (non X)
?
From my understanding, it's essentially down to some Kext files.
I tried installing the package I found on Netkas.org (and posted by Netkas) and tried editing as instructed to add the R9 290 (the bit with the dev-id) but that didn't work.
?
Basically, I'm hoping someone who reads this either has managed to get their R9 290 (non X) working and wouldn't mind posting the necessary Kext files and installation instructions, or someone with the know-how to edit and post the files or be able to provide me with instructions on what exactly I need to do.
?
Any help would be really appreciated!
?

Generally 2 things to make it work on desktop : dev-id should be in AMD7000controller.kext and AMDRADEONX4000.kext, and framebuffer used should have the same plug you connect the display to., else, black screen when booting but no kernel panic. after that chameleon can help to identify model and framebuffer automatically with graphicsenabler=yes and aticonfig=framebuffer compatible with your card if automation doesn't work. You have also an otion in chameleon to put IGP To disable, don't remember.

Stability and acceleration is an other piece of cake.
