This is not my work.
I got it from http://bbs.pcbeta.co...306787-1-1.html ,
and by the way,it's a Chinese forum,if you could read it.

The drivers come from iATKOS_v4i GMA950 driver and were modified by the author.
He tested it ok on iATKOS v4i system.
I tested it on Leo4All_v3 and it's OK,but first updated the LeopardGraphicsUpdate.

except a little mouse tearing

the most important was we nolonger need a paperclip !!!! :(


this is the file.
it could be used directly on 10.5.4.
but I don't know whether you need to firsr update LeopardGraphicsUpdate if you'e using 10.5.3 or some other versions.

Anyone who had tested it please post the result.

It just switched the deviceID between GMA900 and GMA950
in two kexts ( AppleIntelGMA950.kext and AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext)
that means ,replace 0x25928086 with 0x27728086,replace 0x25928086 with 0x27728086.
then we do not need paperclip.

Here is what i got after i used some translating site:
Because I was 10.5.2, you need to download and install LeopardGraphicsUpdate:
http://www.apple.com...csupdate10.html
After installation is complete,First go to (/ System / Library / Extensions) below to delete the following 10 documents,
AppleIntelGMA950.kext
AppleIntelGMA950GA.plugin
AppleIntelGMA950GLDriver.bundle
AppleIntelGMA950VADriver.bundle
AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext
AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext
AppleIntelGMAX3100GA.plugin
AppleIntelGMAX3100GLDriver.bundle
AppleIntelGMAX3100VADriver.bundle
AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext

Use kext helper to install these update:
AppleIntelGMA950.kext
AppleIntelGMA950GA.plugin
AppleIntelGMA950GLDriver.bundle
AppleIntelGMA950VADriver.bundle
AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
Restart,

Can I ask a dumb question,
How did you get leopard installed to begin with ?

I just tried Kaliway, iDeneb and JaS. Best result I get is a blue screen when the process flips to gfx mode...

My laptop is an old Dell B130, SSE2 + GMA900

either use the paper clip method (bend a paper clip so that it bridges the connection between pins 6 and 12 on your VGA output) or just plug in a external monitor while OSX is loading. the easiest way is just to use the external monitor, seeing its just temporary. once you can boot into OSX, install these kexts, reboot and you'll never need the external monitor/paper clip to boot again

I tried to install leopard with jas 10.5.4, with an external monitor plugged in, and the installer stops at the blue screen... didn't have this problem when, long ago, I installed jas 10.4.8... don't understand...

I am familiar with the paper clip thing....
On my B130 here are the results

Kaliway 10.5.2 - system error during system load up
IDeneb-When the installer flips to video mode, I get the infamous "Resart your computer" message
Jas 10.5.4 - Blue screen but computer seems responsive. I believe it's only a driver issue.

Bottom line, no luck for now. JaS seems to be the most stable version even if it fails...

have you tried safe boot? it should bypass the video driver. i know when i updated to 10.5.4 on my desktop, i was having issues with NVinject, blue screen everytime. but when i tried safe boot, it logged right in no problem. try safe boot (-x at darwin prompt) and if it lets you into the system, try installing this kext

Yes, but even if it shows GMA 950, it will use GMA 900 OpenGL Profile.

Hello guys,

I downloaded the file posted by riws. Could anyone provide a link that shows instructions on how to install it? Do I just uncompress the zip and copy the kext file intothe /System/Libraty/Extensions folder and reboot? or do i need to run commands after the file gets placed on S/L/E? Sorry for the questions but i'm actually trying to learn since this is my first install of OSX (well or 7th actually, to get it to where i am now LOL only Video and wifi missing drivers :tomato:

Thanks in advance!

Will V.

Hi.
Work for me on my 10.5.4.

Im just wondering, i have a laptop with GMA900 working (with paper clip) on a Tiger in my office.
Yesterday, i tried using these kext but got error. maybe because the kext are not compatible with Tiger, thats why it cannot load.

What if i still use the kext from a my working tiger, then follow the instruction from post #2 to modify the info.plist. Will it work?

My GOAL here is to get rid of paper clip. In that way, i dont have to use paper clip.

Thanks.

Actually mate they already made a driver for tiger that doesn't need a paperclip. Check the chinese website where they got this driver. I saw that last week when i'm browsing their page. Here is the link just open it with some translating website.

First of all thanks for sharing the info with everyone; however, the link you posted is broken and quite frankly is not like the instructions make that much sense (at least the part after downloading and installing the file).

Thanks,

Will V.
