If none of the first kext are loaded, is so because of the graphics controller kext and graphics acceleration does not contain the device id or vendor id of your graphics. So have to be edited in info.plist.


how to get your device id and vendor id


http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=63


how to edit


http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=1704


Edit the file Info.plist of the kext and add the ID of your card (0xDeviceIDVendorID) in the IOPCIMatch key

 

ATI5000Controller
IOPCIMatch
0x[color=#FF0000]6898[/color][color=#008000]1002[/color] 0x68991002 0x68E01002 0x68E11002 0x68D81002 0x68C01002 0x68C11002
       0x68D91002 0x68B81002 0x68B01002 0x68B11002 0x68A01002 0x68A11002

 

aticontrollerplist.png.61220e72072078ad311ccb6d417c1665.png

 

In this example i used the ATI5000Controller, but the procedure is the same for any of the graphics controllers.


then also edit the kext responsible for the acceleration


4xxx series (ATIRadeonX2000)

5xxx e 6xxx series (ATIRadeonX3000)


info.plist

In the case of ATI Mobility, the procedure is the same, though generally more problems arise.


Forced EDID


http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=208410


If the solutions presented in the first part of the topic do not work with your graphics on your notebook, you can try this solution which is what I use on my notebook Forced EDID.


For that you must obtain on windows the Raw Data of your screen there are some utilities for this.

edidviewer.png.c59cf310d7f6f5e075510db7ec32ff27.png

 

http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm


http://www.eldim.fr/products/display-controller/fpdlite/edidviewer


After obtaining this information you should keep a file with the extension *. txt, then proceed on Mac OS X to edit another file system located in

/ System/Library/Displays/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-756e6b6e/DisplayProductID-717


to do this make a copy of it to the desk, and changed its name to DisplayProductID-717.plist, introducing the Raw Data obtained by the method described above, an example of the original file and the file already containing the Forced EDID Raw Data.

 

editedid.png.2be36a14edd1e97922d40912845715ff.png

 

After this step, simply renaming the file, removing the .Plist and re-copy the file to your place of origin, and run Disk Utility, repairing permissions volume where is the modified file.

I believe my 4850 is not fully working. It is displaying on native resolution, but System Report sees it as generic 5MB GPU.

I edited ATI4800Controller.kext's Info.plist, adding 0x94421002, activated GraphicsEnable and AtiConfig (Cardinal, according to Framebuffer's Info.plist), but it does't seem to be enough.

You said there should be 3 (eventually 4) kexts loaded. How can I make sure they were loaded successfully? System Info shows only ATISupport, but there are other 3 kexts related to my graphic card: AppleMCCSControl, AppleUpstreamUserClient and IONDRVSupport.

I finally managed to make it work after installing ATY_Init.kext.

Earlier I had installed some "enablers", exotic patch and some other things that didn't work, consequently I'm not 100% sure that ATY_Init was the only thing missing or a combination of many things I tried. In the end, I can finally watch YouTube Videos, DVDs, and everything is running smooth.

Hello,


I had recently come across that program. My Insyde BIOS does not support the enabling/disabling of the graphics card. But, I have an interesting outcome of my installation...


Before installation, I did not have a single graphics .kext in /s/l/e. I installed ATI5000, ATIX3000, ATISupport, and ATIFramebuffer. I then repaired permissions and added GraphicsEnabler=Yes and AtiConfig=Hoolock. I then rebooted and got a very strange panic. See pic:

of837c.jpg.e49c640a22d31756b695b71eafe7a36b.jpg

 


I have googled this and there is LITERALLY NOTHING on this error.


Got any idea?


Thanks.

hi artur. this is my situation:


-hardware in signature

-mac osx lion 10.7.3

-multishit 4.2.1 (so chimera 1.7)


system is stable (maybe as a real mac pro). cpu benchmark are impressive. the only issue is that my vapor x 6870 1gb has very poor scores in benchmarks. in cinebench it reaches 32 fps, versus the 50fps or more that other users, with the same graphic card, reach.


so, what's the problem?

i've tried using different smbios (mac pro 3,1:4,1;5,1 and even iMac 12,2, but nothing changes.


look at the pictures please:

hi. i'm using macro 5,1 smbios. dev id of my vapor x is 0x1002 vendor and 0x6738 product.

i've tried kexts that you posted here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=274377&st=0 but without improvements of benchmarking.

thanks

hello artur :)


i guess the switchable graphics is not working in ATI series (A43SA) because there is no option for switching the graphics in windows..it only works in nVidia Series (A43SV)


my friend use the nVidia series and it's working very well for Lion.. :cry:


if we can't use Intel Graphic in Windows,can we use it it Mac?

i am using Lion 10.7.2

how can i make this mac to use Intel Graphics only?



Thanks :D
