I'm having a problem...
When I use a visualizer in iTunes, after about a minute or so it freezes, and only changes when I press a key or click the mouse. Closing and restarting iTunes resolves the issue for another minute or so, but I'm pretty sure it's a driver problem... Any ideas?

hello guys :)
ok, i've got this machine:
ASUS P6T DELUXE V2
i7 920
6GB RAM

few HDDs
and this thing - SAPPHIRE HD4350 256mb

AND I'm absolutely new to OSX86.... but after maybe a week spent in reading topics here and there, burning DVDs, all kinds of OSXes i've just got N.O.T.H.I.N.G.
I don't have any nearby Mac computers, so as far as i've read my only option is Boot 132 + a Retail 10.6...... downloaded one... and i've followed a topic for my MB but i think i get a randomly blurred black screen with white squares etc. just before i get in the Graphic MAC OS Installer. when i tried -x i got STILL WAITING FOR ROOT DEVICE, when i tried GraphicsEnabler=n - nothing better...
so as I believe this is a 4350 problem...
1. i tried to put a boot file i downloaded from netkas (EFI 10.6, i believe) in a boot 132 iso, replacing the original one which was EFI 10.5... but the cd was no longer bootable :(
2. i tried a release by Hazard and i couldn't even see a line with text you usually see before getting into the installer...
3. i tried a leopard ISOs - Kalyway 10.5.2 , iDeneb 10.5.8 etc.... and I CAN'T GET TO THE GUI INSTALLER... :) :( :(
PLEASE HELP ME!

hello everyone, i have started a new thread to aid development of an ATi4350 efi string to replace GraphicsEnabler.
(so we can have dual monitors, better performance, more reliable display wakeup from sleep, fix green apple etc)

This is because i hav'nt had any success, and need really people to help me, and it'd be nice to have a separate development thread.

Hi all

My system
Snow Leopard 10.6.3 mode i386
Dell Optiplex 745
BIOS 2.6.4
DSDT patched
Chameleon 2 RC5_pre8 without GraphicsEnabler.
Sapphire 4350 512 Mo VGA DVI HDMI connectors.

Get your Bios Rom with Winflash under Windows. Others tools exist Google is your friend. ;)

It's made a long time i was searching howto make it work, it's done. :)
DVI working with DVI wire cable.(not with adaptor DVI to VGA.)
HDMI and VGA connectors does not work.

Just inject this code in your DSDT and add id 954f in ATI4500Controller.kext

thats cool to see you have something other than graphicsenabler working
for device-id injection without modifying the kext you can use this in /E/E/

¡FØRWARD BRAVE ATi 4350s!
(step by step guide/summary post)

QE/CI etc, DVI or VGA works but no dual monitors
Also no hdmi port, but apparently you can get hdmi if you use a DVI to HDMI adaptor.
You may have problems with this method if you are not using a vanilla kernal.
ATI4350.Fix.kext is a dummy kext that injects your device-id into ATI4500Controller.kext

Step 1:
If you are on 10.6.3
Just install the ATI4350.Fix.kext - this can go in E/E or S/L/E

If you are on 10.6.2
Install the ATI4350.Fix.kext
Right click on ATIRadeonX2000.kext (in /System/Library/Extensions) and select "show package contents"
Open up contents folder
Edit Info.plist using TextWrangler.app
Add "0x954f1002" directly after <string> which is underneath IOPCIMatch. Save file.
Delete /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches

Step 2:
For only DVI:
Get this easy Chameleon-RC3 with PC-EFI 10.6 Installer
-----or------
For only VGA:
Get this easy Chameleon-RC4 Installer

Step 3:
Add an entry that looks like this to your com.apple.boot.plist
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>

Step 4:
Get Kext Utility, run it to fix permissions and rebuild kextcaches
Reboot

Currently on 10.6.3 you will get a green apple in the top left of the screen, and some minor OpenGL anomalies.


Hello everyone.
I am a noob.
I am unsure exactly what to edit when and where.
*Do I do the edits in safe mode?
*Can I use Tonymacx86 ##### with this guide?
*Will this work alongside Tonymacx86's ##### post installation?
Regarding step 3 in the above guide, I noticed an entry in com.apple.boot.plist when I added the suggested lines "<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>" the following that said in one line "-v GraphicsEnabler=yes" I am not 100% certain now since I did not write it down and I am unable to boot back into SL after attempting to follow this guide above (not even safe mode or with a booter). It boots up (I think) to a black screen. I am unable to see anything. I have attempted many times to try and get back in safe mode with and without a booter to no avail. I should state that I did do all the edits in the guide whilst in safe mode (when it was working).

Apparently, Tonymacx86's ##### post installer also has "Chameleon".

My System Specs:
-Motherboard: Gigabyte P55A-UD4
-CPU: i5-750
-GPU: Gigabyte ATI Radeon 4350 512MB GDDR2
-DVD Drive: Pioneer DVD Writer (that is all I know since I have yet to connect my windows 7 drives back in to check).
-I own the SL 10.6.0 Retail version.
-The SL version when attempting to follow this guide was 10.6.3 (managed to update via the installed SL 10.6.0 in safe mode by connecting to the internet since NIC/Network Card was working).

Apparently there are also reports of success using the 4350 on a hackintosh, yet I have failed to find a guide that clearly explains what booter did they/you use prior for initial install, and whether an actual Retail Snow Leopard was used.
I assumed the "Chameleon RC4" was suppose to be used before doing any install, and now I find out you can install it after you have done a SL install. This does not make sense.

Long story short in this rant; I bypassed step 2 in the above guide when I had to apparently reinstall "Chameleon", since I figured I would not need it due to Tonymacx86's ##### had already installed it.
Do I need to literally install this guide's "Chameleon RC4"?

I've already wasted over 6GB downloading the 10.6.2 and 10.6.3 updates just to attempt to have a working Hackintosh. Remember, I can't use my optical drive strangely. Also none of my USBs as of yet have been recognized when attempting "Tonymacx86's" ##### & ##### (excluding the keyboard and mouse). So, the only way for me to upgrade my Retail SL is via internet (approx 700MB each time).


I ask you all to please help me since many of you have similar components.

I am willing to start completely from scratch using actual working tools if any of you know what literally works, as I am not having any success with Tonymacx86's ##### & ##### so far.

Let me know what booters you used for initial Snow Leopard install.
Let me know if you used a Retail Disk then upgraded to version 10.6.2 or 10.6.3.
Let me know of any Kexts I may need.
Let me know what post installation tools I may need.

P.s. I am already a member in Tonymacx86's forum and trying to come to a solution to install, though there does not seem to be any members in Tonymacx86's forum that also have the 4350 graphics card. So, here I am asking all of you whom had success with this card.

Thanks guys. :)

Long story short in this rant; I bypassed step 2 in the above guide when I had to apparently reinstall "Chameleon", since I figured I would not need it due to Tonymacx86's ##### had already installed it.
Do I need to literally install this guide's "Chameleon RC4"?

I've already wasted over 6GB downloading the 10.6.2 and 10.6.3 updates just to attempt to have a working Hackintosh. Remember, I can't use my optical drive strangely. Also none of my USBs as of yet have been recognized when attempting "Tonymacx86's" ##### & ##### (excluding the keyboard and mouse). So, the only way for me to upgrade my Retail SL is via internet (approx 700MB each time).


I ask you all to please help me since many of you have similar components.

I am willing to start completely from scratch using actual working tools if any of you know what literally works, as I am not having any success with Tonymacx86's ##### & ##### so far.

Let me know what booters you used for initial Snow Leopard install.
Let me know if you used a Retail Disk then upgraded to version 10.6.2 or 10.6.3.
Let me know of any Kexts I may need.
Let me know what post installation tools I may need.

P.s. I am already a member in Tonymacx86's forum and trying to come to a solution to install, though there does not seem to be any members in Tonymacx86's forum that also have the 4350 graphics card. So, here I am asking all of you whom had success with this card.

Thanks guys. :)

personally i despise ##### and ##### - by using them you learn very little about osx86 and you are confined to options included in the installers. but if it works then thats just fine! also, i dont know if there are any other guides for how to install osx on p55-ud4, but it might be worth a google.

ATI 4350 for noobs, these are the current requirements:
10.6.3, ATI4350.Fix.kext in /Extra/Extensions/, Chameleon RC3 & PC_EFI 10.6 (for DVI) or Chameleon RC4 (for VGA)
and graphicsenabler turned on. also regenerate kextcaches (use kextutilty or pfix)

each and every criteria must be met for it to work. Yes you need to literally install this guide's Chameleon RC4 if you have a VGA monitor, or use the PC_EFI installer if you have a DVI monitor.


in answer to your questions:
this will work with #####. basicly, run through everything else in your installation process and then do this guide, and it should work. whether you follow the steps in safe mode or not it shouldnt make a difference.
ive uploaded my com.apple.boot.plist as an example of how graphicsenabler should be enabled (none of that GraphicsEnabler=yes stuff). dont use my boot.plist, but it should be useful as a reference for yours

ill add some more stuff to the guide, as it seems like its not clear enough.

good luck! ;)

wheres 4830?

use the search box! its at the top of the page.

The Wheels on the Bus go round and round:

Guys, is it normal that after following this guide and restarting - the Apple Logo (gray) screen is displaying with a spinning disk (just below the Logo)? I typed this post out (on a different computer notably) while I am waiting patiently for this Apple Logo screen (gray) and spinning disk (just below the Apple Logo) to disappear. So far it has been 10 minutes.

Question time:
1) Is there some kind of repairing taking place?
2) How long will this go for? 30, 40, 60 minutes?
3) After how long is it safe to say I did another failed attempt installing OSX?
When will I know for sure I have epic failed? :P

P.s. I am seriously lmao at this. This is by far the most tedious learning in such a short period of time I had ever done. More so than Uni. Gosh, I have hardly slept these last three days (Starting from the weekend). :D At least I am having fun trying to troubleshoot this. :)

/Added after original post
Ugh, I should also state before I actually did a restart I deleted the old mach_kernal and replaced it with the 10.3.1 Vanilla Kernel. I hope this was not the cause. :P *Secretly thinks it is*

That reminds me; can I use the 10.3.1 Vanilla Kernel with this guide?

Cheers guys.

Sadly, you cannot use the card in anything under Snow Leopard. I had the same dilemna once, then I decided to just go for the upgrade to Snow. It was TOTALLY worth. it.


Anarchintosh: I tried updating to 10.6.3, but all I got was corrupted graphics on boot. I just restored back, I guess i'll just have to live with a non-working visualizer for a while.

vanilla kernel should work with any hack. its just modded kernels that sometimes wont work with things.
er, i actually dont know why its not working for you. probably best to try a re-install and dont touch the kernel or anything. im actually using the 10.3.0 vanilla kernel, maybe 10.3.1 kernel is from snow leopard 10.6.4 beta and is giving issues...... i dont know.


Anarchintosh: I tried updating to 10.6.3, but all I got was corrupted graphics on boot. I just restored back, I guess i'll just have to live with a non-working visualizer for a while.

aw, that sucks ;) . i remember i had some awful problem updating 10.6.2 to 10.6.3 ...... id get graphics corruption. when i booted verbose, it told me i was getting a panic in the X2000 kext.
it turned out that something happened to my kexts (update didnt replace the old ati kexts because i had modified them, pretty weird and unexpected). i manually replaced them with 10.6.3 kexts and it worked!

maybe try updating to 10.6.3 and also manually replace all the ATI kexts in S/L/E with those found in the 10.6.3 update disk image (its on apples website). you can use Pacifist to open the .dmg and get the kexts. just an idea......
are you using amd kernel?

I might try that a few days from now, I was trying to fiddle with it but kinda got lazy and just restored from my back up lol.
And yes, I am using the Qoopz AMD kernel. It's been working great so far, pretty sure that's what gave me graphics for 10.6.2.

i think its all about kernel!

i tryed 10.6.2 & 10.6.3

every time it produced KP ATIRadeonX2000.kext, garbled image, or monitor out of range, when editing ATIRadeonX2000.kext & ATI4500Controller.kext

i think solution lies in kernel you are using. for me its chocolate_kernel on C2D E2140 + Asus P5KPL-AM/PS (G31) + SATA HDD + ATA DVD ROM

also another thing i noticed is that, when you set resolution in com.apple.Boot.plist (like Graphics Mode = 1280x1024x32) it wont work either.

one more solution to your problems might be PciRoot=0, that worked for me.

tested various bootloaders, and the only one that seems to work is EFI 10.6!

so you have to boot in chocolate_kernel with EFI 10.6, edit kexts with your ID's, and set com.apple.Boot.plist the proper way.

card works on both, DVI & VGA output, and there is no need for DVI2VGA adaptor to be pluged in.
here is little thread, with solution that worked for me, you could give it a shoot.

only drawback is that VGA ATI 4350 is recognised as ATI 4890.

Mac OS X 10.6.4
Posted Image

UPDATING.
Graphics corruption on boot. Its a kext problem.

I know of only one way to fix it:
replace all ATI kexts in 10.6.4 with those from 10.6.3

Heres my ATI kexts for 10.6.4
Replace the ATI kexts in S/L/E with these.
You must do it after updating and run pfix or kextutility
(device-id is in 4500controller)
You still need GraphicsEnabler on.

This is a really horrible way to update, but it works.
There must be a performance decrease, because desktop
now takes a second longer to load.
Green apple () is still there.
I am not going to update my guide with this because its a horrible method.

Personally im going to continue using 10.6.3 until
a more ninja ;) method is around for 10.6.4

The green Apple is a very big problem. I installed "Star Wars The Force Unleashed" and all the graphics are green, and sometimes pink, except the sky and characters :P

ANARCHiNTOSH, can we put these kext in Extra/Extensions (instead of S/L/E) ? Thanks !
