Under 10.5.5
1. Download kexts by Rumblpak

http://rapidshare.co...nsions.tgz.html

2. Add your device id in info.plist of downloaded NVDANV50Hal.kext:

Open info.plist, find

<key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
<string>
0x00f010de&amp;0xfff0ffff
0x019010de&amp;0xfff0ffff
0x040010de&amp;0xfff0ffff
0x042010de&amp;0xfff0ffff
0x06e010de&amp;0xfff0ffff
0x060010de&amp;0xffe0ffff
0x062010de&amp;0xffe0ffff
0x064010de&amp;0xffe0ffff
0x086010de&amp;0xffe0ffff
</string>

Just change above to

<key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
<string>0x[your dev id]10de</string>

EX: my 9600gt has dev id 0622, so mine is

<key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
<string>0x062210de</string>

Save the plist.

3.Use kext helper to replace AppleGraphicsControl.kext, IOGraphicsFamily.kext, all kexts with Geforce and NVDAXXXHal, NVDAResman.kext.


4. Use gfx EFI strings guide to add your efi string in boot plist:

http://forum.netkas....php?topic=222.0

Osx86tool is suggested for an easy EFI string making: http://osx86tools.go...ols_1.0.150.zip

If you have NVInjector.kext NVkush.kext Natit.kext Titan.kext, you should delete them.


Reboot and cross fingers:)

Mine is working fine, I'm also an AMD user with NVidia chipset.

Simply copy new kext+ EFI strings, it works like a charm.
When I heard the gpu fan suddenly silent before getting into desktop I knew it's working :)


Where did you get the kexts? And what in.plist do you use?
Are you using 9600GT or 9600M GT?

Oh, I forget to mention that I change info.plist in NVDANV50Hal.kext to contain my device id

nah this isn't a joke, i'm not surprised it works. GO try it yourself you 9600 users.

I just wanna see a screenshot to see the 9600 GT specs (opengl 3 should be 30%) that's all :( i believe him.

Well I'm trying to get OS X installed on my desktop now (I have a MacBook for OS X now days) and I'll test it later today, if I can get this booting.

I got kernel panic, something about not being able to find ACPI... Is this supposed to go on 10.5.5? I tried with kaly 10.5.2.

Just got a KP by just copying extensions folder over. Can the OP write a full step by step guide?

The new kexts should only work in 10.5.5; however, seeing as how my new motherboard refuses to let me boot off an external hd I have no way of testing. I'm attempting at shrinking my D drive enough to do an install but no promises when that may be.

Hi guys, don't just copy all the extensions blindly. I'm a 9600gt user, so i just copy AppleGraphicsControl.kext, IOGraphicsFamily.kext, all kexts with Geforce and NVDAXXX.
I havent compare them with old ones, I think some of them are not necessary. And I use kext helper for those permission things.
Dont mess with other kexts especially acpi, that's gonna hurt!

I just got too exited to get it working, so my first post is not very clear, sorry my bad!

I'm not with my hackintosh now, I will post the screenshot later.

I'm very surprised that even gpu fan got controlled by the driver, just like in windows. When with no drivers, my gpu fan is forced at full throttle, and make a horrible noise.

When you are able to can you please write a full guide on how to do this, if you could include screenshots it would be great. I presume there are a few people with this card that would love to have it properly supported.

Thank you!
