Thank you very much for your answer. It is sad but in my case I will not be able to prove KABYL method because in his thread is not allowed to ask about how it is working :( , and like I am a newbie in this so…. I will have to prove your 30 boot files… it’s a pitty, but thanks a lot for your great work!!!! :D

Guys! I did as described in the topic and my Vapor-X workx like a charm. The only problem is just 23fps in Cinebench 11.5 WFT? Also smallluxGPU show that card is only 725Mhz? is it a bug or Apple underclocks my card?

Also when on desktop I have secondary mouse pointer.
All works with 513 chameleon but no with baboon (black screen) :dev:

Hi! I have tried "almost with success" again. I get the apple screen load (it is different that before, so I think that is good), but it get a infinitive loop. I have capture the screen in verbose mode.

Some idea to help me this works finally at all??

I don´t know what could be the problem. I had to put GRAPHICENABLER=No because with yes I got black screen.

Please, I think that I am very near to get it.... a little help more!!!!


Thanks :)

Can you everyone that has a HOW TO, please start posting their own threads than maybe the information is not going to be a one big mess! there now exist 4-5 different methods on how to install the ATI 5770 card one way worse than the other. It's kinda getting ridicules.

One example is posting a tutorial and not being on top of your own {censored}. Copy/Stealing a little info there and posting a little there is doing more harm than good!

Lets try from now on to post information in its fullest form! that is in this community's interest.

this will get chameleon log


Mohamed, sorry for the delay. I was trying to fix my KPs I was getting every time I was shutting down my system. Now that that's been fixed I can come back to the video ROM issue. I did also mdify ati.c (included Vervet since I got 5770 card) and recompiled with the latest chameleon rev515. And you were correct, the bdmesg turned out to be part of their ditribution. However, after I boot with "-v UseAtiROM=no" and get the black screen with fullspeed fans, I have to restart it and then the bdmesg only shows messages from most recent boot, so no luck with that, unless you know where I can find my previous boot messages.

Hi!

First I used Chameleon-2.0-RC5-r518.pkg installer.
I modified com.boot.apple.plist.
I replaced my old card to newest, and started my WIN7.
I saved ROM file from my card with winfash.
I started Snow Leo in 64 bit, but I have only one working DVI output.
I have one DVI LCD one VGA LCD with DVI adapter and one HDMI LCD TV.
I read in this topic, I need to replace boot file to R513, but I have newer.
What can I do?

I have done the process, and with boot9 file I get after darwin go into Chamaleon (before with other boots after Darwin I got black screen). Now when I select in chamaleon OSX my screen gets black again, so I have to prove another frambuffers but I don´t know where I can get it and how to use them. Please some help for me.

My graphic card is ATI SAPPHIRE 512 MB DDR5. I have to use PCIROOTUID=1 because I had this problem too. I think that perhaps with the correct framebuffer I could get my OSX works finally. Somebody has my same graphic card to know what framebuffer is using?

I have another question... How I could know if I am starting with x64 or x32? My computer is x64 and I use SL 10.6.4 but I don´t know if my system goes into 64 or 32 bits.

Thank you very much!!!

PD. Is there some thread where are alll boots to prove each one? I only have found boot7, boot8, boot9.

use Kablys new bootloader it lets you select what Frambuffer to use via a boot command HERE.

it depends on your kernel whether or not you can boot to 64bit

I've currently got an nvidia card running on 10.6.4 with the graphics update. Can I just swap in the 5770 with the required changes (boot file, rom, etc) and expect it to work? Or does this involve a reinstall of the entire OS?

Thanks!



To answer my own question, you do not need to reinstall. Just drop in the required changes and you should be good to go from your existing install. However, I did run into some random screen freezes (mainly to white) which seems to have been fixed by reinstalling the Snow Leopard Graphics Update and/or extracting my own XFX rom with GPUz in windows.

I'm attaching my extracted ROM from XFX 5770 if anyone needs it.

Thanks for the information but unfortunately I don´t know how I could use it :D , so if you don´t mind, could you give a little explanation about the install process and how to change frame buffers? I think that a lot of people will appreciate it, and of course.... ME TOO!!! :D

Thanks!

You said in an earlier post dual DVI didn't work with your rev518 boot. But now it does work with Kabyl's boot. As far as I know, they both use the Vervet framebuffer by default. So it shouldn't have made a difference. Did you change anything else?

And as to your question. My simple logic says that since there is another display connector displayed in the "about this mac", I suppose a third display would be possible. Also, as far as i know, besides the Sapphire 5770 flex eg, most card can only connect 2 DVI/HDMI ports and 1 displayport. So I think that third connector is indeed your displayport.

you may get more ports to use because some boot files arent setup for multiple monitors. kabyls is so are mohamed kairy's.

ddrmama, put kabyls boot file where ever your boot file needs to go (EFI, or Root). then go to c.a.b.p and make sure AtiROM is not in there because kabyls automatically does this and add a new flag named AtiFb=Frambuffer you need

CODE

<string>Yes</string>
<key>UseAtiROM</key>
<string>Yes</string>

6- put rom on extra
7- restart
8-install gfx update 1.0
9- now it work

Kabyl's latest boot should support 2x cards with just GraphicsEnabler= Yes and VBIOS=Yes (VBIOS=Yes is default!)
