Thank you, but this is like adding the device ID in the ATI4500Controller.kext ? Do you still need a PC EFI or Chameleon boot file ? Does this solve the green apple issue ?
ah, i didnt make it clear. all it does currently is inject device-id, like adding it to ATI4500controller.kext.
Its just a handy thing to make your osx86 neater.
- now you wont need to re-add your device-id after updating
it doesnt solve green apple and you still need pcefi or chameleon graphics enabler or dsdt inject code
If someone could pin-point the code (its probably in one of the ati kexts info.plist)
that is causing the green apple error, then it would be possible to fix it from the ATI4350.Fix.kext
If anyone has the time they could find which kext is causing the problem by individually swapping out
10.6.3 ATI kexts for their 10.6.2 equivalents. let me know.....
but it may be something to do with GraphicsEnabler.....
ive been thinking a lot about the dsdt code that buwie posted:
i wonder if that dsdt injector can:
1) be adapted to enable DVI
2) be adapted to enable dual monitors
3) a more abstract query: can dsdt code be adapted/changed to run from kexts? and would this result in longer boot time
if so it would be possible to enable everything from the fix.kext, which would be better than using
horrid GraphicsEnabler, and more convenient than patching your dsdt (i like to keep graphics out of dsdt)
@parannoyed, im very interested to hear what the results of your benchmarks/tests are.
does the green apple indicate an underlying problem, does 10.6.3 bring any regressions for 4350?
