Update:

This installer will work for Radeon X1600 with Dev ID “71C2″ and maybe with Dev id 71c0, 71c1, 71c3, 71c4 and 71c5 too.

Have been tested with Radeon X1600 Dev ID “71C2″ on Snow Leopard 10.6.5 64Bit. QE/CI/Rotations/Resolutions are Full Supported.

Attentions : Just select only “one” Device ID when install !!!

How to install
Just Download Radeon x1600 series installer for snow leopard from HERE and select on your device id and then reboot.

=============================================================
Download all Attachment and extract

Dev ID 71c2

just copy all kext to /System/Library/Extensions folder.
and do this in terminal :

sudo chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions

sudo chmod -R 755 /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions

sudo kextcache -v 1 -m /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions (Note : This has to be in one line , not two separate lines)

Reboot


Other Device ID, like 71c5
open ATIinject.kext/Contents/Info.plist with textedit
find :

<key>ATY,DeviceID</key>
<integer>0x71c2</integer>

and replace 0x71c2 with your DeviceID

Save.

Open ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist with textedit
Find :

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>
<string>0x71871002 0x72101002 0x71DE1002 0x71461002 0x71421002 0x71091002 0x71C51002 0x71C21002 0x72401002 0x72491002 0x72911002</string>

and replace 0x71c2 with your DeviceID

like this :

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>
<string>0x71C21002</string>

Note : 71C2 its my DevID.

copy all kext to /System/Library/Extensions folder.
and do this in terminal :

sudo chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions

sudo chmod -R 755 /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions

sudo kextcache -v 1 -m /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions (Note : This has to be in one line , not two separate lines)

Reboot

All QE/CI/Rotation now Supported

Gonna try this in a bit - so what all did you do to these 5 kexts? Did you whip out a hex editor on the binaries themselves or just modify plists? I ask because I've tried a LOT of combinations to no avail ;)

ok, just for my own clarification, this is to make it so that my 71c5 will work properly in SL correct? sorry for the remedial question, but I stumbled on to a horror story or two on the apple discussion page and found my way here as a possible solution. also, most of this seems very over my head, if this is a workaround for a potential problem on SL I may need some more help making sure I do this properly. sorry... and hopefully thanks in advance.

Just tried this kexts with my x1650 Pro, even though it is not the same card per se. Got resolution working, and is recognized in System Profiler, but no QE/CI. I cannot change ATIRadeonX1000 with my DeviceID like the guide says because I get a kernel panic if I do so. Any way to add my Device ID (which is 71c7) to ATIRadeonX1000 safely so it does not panic?

This worked GREAT - I went into all of the Info.plist files and changed all references of 71C2 to my 71C4 (ATI Radeon X1600 Mobility on a Thinkpad T60p) and *poof* perfect display quality with resolution & frequency change! Previously I had QE/CI enabled, but there were artifacts and my mouse would distort and disappear whenever I played any movies full screen (Quick View worked fine though) or a screen saver started up. All fixed :)

So what exactly did you do and what files did you modify? Now that 10.6.1 is out (I knew this would happen, get everything finally working and an update would appear) what do we need to do to upgrade? Can we just do the upgrade overwriting the included 4 ATI kexts and just go in and readd our device id since your ATIinject appears to be doing all of the work? Or did you do something to modify the kexts themselves beyond text edits?

Thanks again! :(

This method works also for x1700 ... the main problem is if we want a x64 kernel to load ... all this is not working but is a good start using x32 kexts ... also you can check this and try EVOenabler from my files.
Hope someone soon will make x64 compatible kexts.

Cheers

I give up... I've tried with a bunch of different kexts, combinations, edits, yet still I can't get QE/CI on my x1650 Pro. I get resolution, card identification and rotation, but no luck with QE/CI. I guess I'll stick with Leo.

Try using the latest Atindrv that came before 10.5.8 update,
use EVOenabler with the info in plist that you used in 10.5.x on ATiinject
... and patch (hex edited) the atiradeonx1000 with your device id (for example on mine i had to replace all instances of DE71 with D571) then also add the device id in the info.plist
replace in ATISupport info.plist 0x00001002&0x0000FFFF with (ex of mine: 0x71d51002&0x0000FFFF)
you can remove AtiRadeonx1600.controller
that's it

Has anyone been successful in using this method from the EFI partition? It works fine by loading the kexts from /S/L/E, but not from EFI.

I have this card too. I tried the changes above but no luck. What can we do to make this card to work with SL? :(

First, download the two files above and then decompress them with unrarx (http://www.unrarx.com/).

Dear 3rr0rists,

I installed your files into my iAtkos 10.5.8 system running your 0x71c2steps except the last commands didn't work... so I rebooted anyway and crossed my fingers and it booted just fine... I mean it had to do a lot of different things setting up, but over all it works! Thank you... But I still have one problem, no Quartz extreme... Right Eye explained how you could fix it, but honestly I didn't understand what he meant. Please an easier explanation or tutorial would be greatly appreciated (maybe even with Links... sorry for asking for so much, but I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to editing kext's for graphic cards.)

Thank you!

I ended up using the drivers from this post, instead.
