This is something I am thinking about trying to take on. My goals are to have the proper name for Radeon HD 4xxx cards showing in system profiler and to get DVI working if I can from these cards as well. If I can't then at lease have proper naming and current info in system profiler along with vga out.

I am modifying Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-src_PCEFIV10.6-src from prasys' blog. It has reboot / shutdown / smbios injecting included and a lot of other nice fixes.

So far I have managed to get DVI output working without the need for a dongle on the vga port or without the need to have two connections to the display at the same time ... thank god for that.

I havent tested the hdmi port yet.

I'll attach the boot file for now.

Do not try this if you do not know how to recover from placing a boot file in the root of your os x partition that does not boot into the GUI, incase something goes wrong you need to know how to fix it.

P.S:Right now this is for dvi on the hd 4670 any other hd 4xxx will feel like they didn't update their boot , tho I would like other hd 4xxx users to post here and give me there dev ids. I will then make a boot for them to test.

Come to #RadeonHD or #MacOSx on irc.osx86.hu for help :)

edit:

forget it I'm not gonna risk borking a fresh install (besides i use 2 screens so its not like i'd be gaining anything by using this)

if i have time and change my mind i'll try it. but not right now.

good job with all of your work you've contributed to the community

Just a little note for 4870HD 512mb users (Vendor: ATI (0x1002), Device ID: 0x9440, Revision ID: 0x0000); 10.6.2 and 10.6.3 handles these cards natively. All that is needed to get full QE/CI (dual DVI without dongle) is the boot flag Graphicsenabler=y, assuming you are using a recent bootloader (PC_EFI 10.5+, Booter_AsereBLN_v1.1.x, Chameleon etc). :)

This card seemed to only work with the Flicker frame buffer, and it may come down to resellers working with different fbs. So like a Diamond branded 4650 card a 3D 4650 branded card will not work with the same one. Annoying

Can you help me out with a boot to test my card.

I have a Sapphire Radeon HD 4650 1GB and I've only been able to get it to work with a DVI2VGA adapter.

(Vendor: ATI (0x1002), Device ID: 0x9498, Revision ID: 0x0000)

My card has 1x DVI (came with DVI to HDMI adapter), 1x S-Video out, and 1x VGA

@JaS

Hey, was wondering if the supported HD4670 in the iMac is the mobile version? Curious because I got the Diamond HD4670 to work only with the dongle to vga but nothing els and its clearly not picking up all the bells and whistles.

If this is the case then Im sticking to HD4850 or HD4870 HD4890 that work without any glitches when building Hackintosh for a buddie. And yeah I'm aware there are versions of those that do not fully work.

*fullyworking: DVI & DVI dual monitor, or DVI to VGA dongle and DVI to VGA dongle dual monitor, HDMI via dongle to any DVI. All resolutions. Sleep wake, auto switching to correct useable settings as soon as you plug monitor in

The cards that seem to work as reading through the ATI HD48XX seem to always have dual DVI. SL 10.6.2 works the best for me because it doesn't delete my digital out for my 889 audio. SL 10.6.3 is slower on benches and really does nothing to improve my setup other than screw up my video. Have to always install 10.6.2 kext's to bring full usage. Odd this happens.

Anyways will play with your "boot" to see if i don't have to restore my 10.6.2 kext to 10.6.3 SL .
Thank you to! may work :D

sidenote: I will jump on Nvidia as soon as Fermi is supported
