i tried many times to derive my ati 5650 on lion GM 10.7 and on iAtkos L2 with this tutorial http://www.osx86.net/view/1502-qe-ci_with_..._lion!.html but nothing done

each time i end with the apple boot logo and the loading image under it freezed stopped rotating after some time around 2 minutes

the GM master i tried it with clean install and with different boot files the one on the tutorial files and the one on this video comments

and tried non clean install after sound and usb fix and other kexts

but the same thing happend freezing boot screen or panic error

and tried the tutorial after DSDT patching and nothing again the freezing boot logo

when i booting -v its sometimes acpi error and sometimes SMC cannt located driver error

i tried to use the extra this guy provided in the video and his boot file too but the same cant boot with chameleon only rboot with no graphics at all

this is my full configuration


and this is my edid



and this is the Gold master i used


and this is my Graphics Card

ok i fixed it no problems at this i did something stupid with the new chameleon wizard

but now here is the story of what happend after i did what u told me in wrong way and lost boot i entered lion again with rboot LE and everything went ok

after i accessed the lion desktop i installed the Chameleon-2.0-RC5-r875 again and the problem resolved

i replaced the boot file and select boot0m option and and select the preinstalled tab or something like that tab above beside dropbox and folder on disk i think

when i restarted i got this



and i booted with verbose mod -v and i got this to

with the boot file provided on the tutorial on kext.com and i got this


and the boot file from the guy in the video with his extra folder replaced in my mac drive and i got this


is this can help u to state the problem ??

important note

i noticed in the 2 times the one with the boot file in the tutorial and the boot file provided in the youtube video from that guy

when i in the -v mode

it reads the card all its all details !!!!!!!!!!!

like its id

and its actual 1GB speed ???? and so on ????

i hope this can help u to state the problem well

man let we talk about something

now i do not know what are u doing and follow...

so if u follow something , must read all about and do the right way the tuto u are follow

and pay atention in something i gonna tell u

u must have a clone in another partition to do test..

if something go wrong u can recover u original install

one of the images u don't have fakesmc installed

and the chameleon to use must boot ML

if boot ML it boot too Lion, but some chameleon boot lion and do not boot ML like that 875

good hack

finaly i got y card working :D:o


:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: am very happy

but here is the story

i installed Chameleon-2.1svn-r2003.pkg

i replaced my boot file with this boot file in attachments

and created /extra folder and put in the extension folder the fakesmc.kext from the guy on the youtube video has the same my laptop with its all configuration exactly the same

after restart i cant be able to go to my desktop in any frame buffer i tried

ATiConfig=HooLock and ATiconfig=Knull aticonfig=KEulemor and Eulemur and Langur

some of them return with system uptime in nano seconds xxxxx :(

and others return with black screen and the light is on and the device still working

i tried to boot in verbose mode with no frame buffer and only my flags

cpus=1 busratio=20 -v

+ GraphicsEnabler=yes

and get scrembled screen before the login form

and i noticed three things :

1-the display properties in system configuration didnt have the

refresh rate drop list

here is the screen


2- i think the font it isnt smooth

3 - after first restart my menu system report reports my graphics card like this :?


very important note

i restarted the laptop more than 10 times with no aticonfig at all only graphicsenabler=yes and cpus,busratio to see what will happend

one time i can reache my desktop and the other one i got system uptime in nanosecond

in other word its mutual one successful start and the other failed

and with each restart before the laptop shutdown i have this text printed in my screen

MACH Reboot
No interval found for using 8000000
Restart still waiting on appleUSBEHCI
