Well I tried with every framebuffers, but all does the same. Mac boots fine, and the card is recognized as a ATI Radeon HD 4650 Series, with 1024 MB of VRAM, but there is no QE/CI support and the only resolution possible is 1024x768. I don't think the problem is with the framebuffer, I think is more with the driver. Maybe the driver doesn't load correctly. I added my device ID in both kexts, ATI4600Controller and ATIRadeonX2000. But it's the same. Maybe too could be the DSTD, I never edited that.
Any advice?
Thank you. Bye

Your right it's not the framebuffer. If you always boot to the desktop and never have a black screen whatever framebuffer your using, then the ATI kext's are not loading. Unfortunately I don't have an answer for you. I don't know the compatibility with AGP cards nor what driver is supposed to be used... You'll have to ask around the different forums

It's the AGP port, I'm sure. I read that Leopard and Snow Leopard aren't compatible with AGP naturally. It can work with injectors, AGPGart or with DSDT Mod. To use this card injectors don't work. AGPGart only works in Leopard not in Snow. And I have no idea what should I change in the DSDT.aml file to get the AGP working.
I tried with AGPGart.kext and the system freezes after loading the kext. But when I delete the kext from Windows and I boot Mac, I get lines of FakeSMC about the card and the AGP, bla bla bla, and I get a blank screen. It's like in that moment the card boot fines, but the Framebuffer isn't the correct one. I was using a boot file with Eulemur.
So I think I'm sure, if I get patch correctly the DSDT, the card will work. But until now I have no idea what i have to edit. I'll informing about this. Bye.

I have a trouble with this VGA too.
I've tried a lot of bootloaders, a lot of kexts modfied to HD4650 only, and nothing.
My card is XFX HD4650 512MB.
I'd install with AsereBLN, PC_EFI 10.6, Chameleon RC5 & RC4, but I can't have a good result for this.
I've tried too DVI and VGA ports, both have the 'black screen' when I leave my Dev-ID only.

Install the EVOenabler with system are recomended to make this card work?

are you guy's experiencing full qe/ci support with your installations?

me =

os x version: 10.6.3
card: xfx 4650 1 gig pci-e
boot: chameleon 2.0 r643
resolution: 1680x1050 on dvi port 2
kexts installed w/ 0x94981002 id's on 4600 and x2000:

ati4600controller.kext v1.6.6
'' Framebuffer.kext v1.6.6
'' Radeonx2000.kext v1.6.10 does this matter?
'' Support.kext v1.6.6


it looks like everything is installed correctly but no dice (QE support not enabled)

do i have to perform a magic hat trick to get this working?

can't even get in a screenshot because the display is just black, no dvd or video playback right now kinda sux

i see some of you working with v10.6.5 on your os should I update would that fix things looking for a heads up thx


one other thing my com.boot.apple.plist looks like this

8 keys total

boot graphics: yes
graphics mode: 1680x1050x32
graphics enamber: yes
kernel mach: kernel
quiet boot: no
kernel flags:
timeout: 5
arch: i386

hey svemike... i have eulemer working dual screen with dvi vga adaptors....
can you tell me how to enable dvi dvi ports ....


Just realized that I never responded to you... Sorry... You can use "Zonalis" as the framebuffer to get dual display dual DVI support, although if you use "Sleep" then only one screen will wake up and you have to reboot to get the other one back on.

Yes. Looks like you have the same card as me. Use the boot file I have attached which gives you DVI port 1 fully working, including waking from sleep. Otherwise read my previous posts on how to get the source code and edit it to use a different framebuffer.
Make sure you have "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" not "graphics enamber=yes" in com.apple.Boot.plist.
BTW: The versions of kexts and OS X version does not matter. If you update to 10.6.6 then you'll have to add ID to ATI4600Controller.kext and ATIRadeonX2000.kext again.

1. use this boot file
2. make sure boot.plist is correct
3. add ID's to kexts
4. reboot
Everything should be working fine then

Just boot into single user mode and move the two kexts out of System/Library/Extensions, but don't delete them!! Then reboot so you can get into the desktop. I'm guessing you've gotten it to work before? When you say you installed 4600... and x2000... did you use older kexts? Just use the ones from 10.6.6 and copy them to desktop, add ID and then reinstall using "Kext Utility"
If you use older kexts you may get dependency issues, but you don't need older kexts, the new ones from 10.6.6 work just fine.

I'm getting dual monitors, but the DVI monitor does not sleep properly. Is this likely a framebuffer issue?

Here is the package that ya requested homie : :dev:

*OSX 10.6.6 package for Radeon ATI 4650 HD
by Sincro77*
:dev: \

....everything you need is here. .. its pretty basic now finally/


ive prepared the kexts.no edit necessary
.
0 -install chamelon RC5... if you dont have a recent bootloader this may fail...
1 -use kexthelper - just drag the kexts onto the app. push the button.dont reboot.
2 -with osx86tools - repair permissions ,set extensions, clear cache, and touch ext folder
3 -delete "boot" from your active partition and replace with this one i provided.
4 -make sure your entries are correct in:
dir Root/Library/Pref/SystemPref - com.apple.boot.plist
and have the same in your invisible dir Root/Extra Folder.
if you want 64 bit mode add -force64 after arch=i386 -force64>string eg.

- with .kexts and .plist files :: if you edit them . always repair permissions after.
step
This is working with Chameleon RC5 629 using Eulemur for dual screens

** if you nubes still need directions post here and i will sell you more details. wink_anim.gif ¬ (kidding)

I dont want to "overcomplicate things" this time ( jk svenmike. read my other post;)

i hope i didnt forget anything.....?
if anyone needs help i'm here.............. peace

cheers :D
sincro77

Dont forget to let me know how this works out for all of you.

Hello, I have a HIS 4670 with dual dvi output. (1002:9490)
I'm working perfectly fine with a single monitor on DVI (no dongle).
But 2nd monitor is not detected at all.
The only "boot" that works for me is this one from netkas:

http://netkas.org/?p=284

-> "You will need – a beta booter with GraphicsEnabler support for those card and drivers for osx" (this comment was from 2009)

If I want to try Dual Monitor, what should I do? Should I edit ati.c?

On PC_EFI I have this for my board:
{ 0x10029490, "Peregrine"} ,

But on Chameleon I have this:
{ 0x10029490, "Motmot"} ,

Any ideas about where should I start?

I *FINALLY* got my 4650 card working - QE/CI, resolution change, DVI/HDMI out... (well, only 1 port, but still!)

Hope this helps somebody else:

I added the card id (9498) to 4600Controller and X2000 - but the real trick was changing the framebuffer....
I used the current trunk of Chameleon, and changed the framebuffer to Flicker:

{ 0x10029498, "Flicker"}

"MotMot" *kinda* worked - but I had to have 2 monitors plugged in, one to each DVI port, and even then only ONE worked, and no QE/CI....

I attached my boot file - don't forget GraphicsEnabler = Y

4650 SOLVED!!!!!!!!!
check OUT the screenshot.

screen1 1680x1050
screen2 1920x1080

qe ci. spanned.. using "secondbar" app. also
Eulemur framebuffer. Cham rc5 629.
patched DSDT ALC662 fully working with all ports in/out etc but as a 2 channel stereo device.
also installed an audigy and use kx drivers 5.1 out ..sweeeet. on a ASUS m2n68-am plus AMDx2 5400+
\oc RAm/ clocking 3.2 using 13.5x238 bus/// 4gigz memory is 800 running at 933mhz/. :) :) :) not bAD


4650 windows users should use"amd gpu clock tool" and the settings 648 mhz and 504 mhz to oc this card and get another 15 -20 fps from it .. its very usable for its cost on the market.. it often still surprizes me.

RESswitchX !!!!!! :) :) :)

look 3600x1080 mwhaaaahaaaahaaaaahahahahaaahaaaaaaa haa.
