i don't know iAtkos, its possible that is causing problems for you.
try a vanilla install. this guide works with most 4350.
some 4350s unfortunately do not work with it...

i've 4350 too, but my computer is based on AMD. After i inserted Empire EFI CD to boot SL before installation, it's panic. But i try to boot with -x and can install SL. After installation, it still need -x to boot at SL. If i boot in normal mode, it always panic on ATIX2000. Do u have solution? thx

the best thing to do would be to read through this thread, where a number of people with AMD found some way to get their 4350 to work, im not sure how they did it though.
also, if you google "ati 4350 os x" there are other threads with answers

Hi u all,

i tried everything to get my Sapphire 4350 1GB to work, but no success.

From Screengarbage to "No Signal" i get it all but no Desktop, no QE and no CI.
I used the VGA Output.

Are there any ATI Card that works complete ootb, with all Outputs and HDSound via HDMI?

I just want to report that i've successfully install ati4350 with a green apple logo on the top left. I can set my display to whatever resolution i want. This was what i did:

1. install Chameleon 2 RC5 r643
2. delete all ATI in S/L/E
3. using KextUtility to install all ATI from 1st post where it say Additional Steps
4. using KextUtility to install ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext
5. i do not need to edit com.apple.boot.plist since it's already enabled
6. delete /E/Extensions.mkext and /S/L/caches/com.apple.kext.caches folder
7. run KextUtility and restart (Done and successfully)

Everything in my system work 100%

thanks ANARCHiNTOSH

Hey guys,
I have a strange problem. I managed to get my Hackintosh working without any problems except the ATI card. Then I found this thread and tried it. Unfortunately I'm not able to run 10.6.5 due to AMD Athlon Kernel problems. So I tried 10.6.3. I installed 10.6, then combo update to 10.6.3, downloaded kexts from chinese guy, installed them with kext helper b7, installed Chameleon 2 RC4 (for DVI) and rebooted. And my system stucks at the start of the gui now. That means my text is: Waiting for DSMOS... Something with my mac adressese and then the ACPI Timeout thing and then nothing. Nothing happens when the gui starts normally. Do you guys have any suggestions?

Thanky you

P.S: Sorry for my bad english, I'm german.

i think it's better to use KextUtitly since it repair permission after it install kext. You can view my post (above your post) how i had mine to work. http://www.kexts.com...ow_leopard.html

you can download all files from post #1 for ATI4350

@loganMac:
That is the same as i did. No Success.

My Hardware:
Core I3-540
MSI H55M-E23
4GB DDR3-1066
128GB Corsair SSD
OSX 10.6.5 retail

Works great with my old GeForce 9500GT.
But I need true HD Audio over HDMI.

I also patched the Kexts for the internal I3 GFX.
On normal boot, the Bootscreen stays on(Apple and rotating Wheel) but OSX boot to complete.
On -V boot, after the last line of the Textlog stays on but OSX boot to complete. As with any other bootarg.
I dont know if the i5 and the i3 internal GFX is the same.

4. copy & paste ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext to E/E
5. using KextUtility to install ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext

Does that mean that you copied ATI4350 Fix to E/E and that you also installed it to /S/L/E?

i just do a fresh install and you don't need to copy to E/E. If you have it in your desktop, thumb drive, or cd, you can just drag it to Kext Utility.

Ok I installed 10.6.5 Chameleon 2 RC5 r643 and a kernel for my amd. I also deleted all ATI Kexts and installed the vanilla. I put the ATI Fix to E/E then. But now the surprise, no DSMOS arrived as mentioned in my post before. This is really annoying and I don't know how to fix this!

imo, pfix is better.
just treat all kexts as you would any other file, and then run pfix at the end

I have a Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R motherboard and an HIS ATI 4350 video card. I installed Snow Leopard 10.6.5 using the retail method and files from this post. Then I installed ANARCHiNTOSH kexts but after boot I get a black screen while the system continues to load. If I remove all ATI kexts i can boot in Snow Leopard with 1440 x 900 resolution. Can someone help me with a solution?

I have a Sapphire 4350 and got it to work (1920x1080 with QE/CI) via DVI in 10.6.4 using the guide. (Correction: I have the 512mb version of the Sapphire 4350) I had issues with video in Itunes and gave up on it. I'm now using an ASUS 8400 GS. It's works OOB with 10.6.5

I tried again without luck. With ATI kexts i get black screen, without ATI kexts i boot SL at 1440x1050 resolution without QE/CI. What I do wrong? I really want my card running in SL

@everyone
10.6.6 is totally safe to install. (in regard to ATI4350)
For ATI4350 it is exactly the same as 10.6.5.

if you have ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext installed you can just install the update, provided your other hardware is alright with the update. (10.6.6 barely changes anything apart from new lame App Store, so its probably fine)

For my card the only way for have change res and qe/ci on 10.6.5 is to backup my ati4500contr, atiframebuffer, atsupport of 10.6.2 kexts (using injecting for ati4500contr kext). I have seen that after boot appears the normal blue screen and then it change becoming more dark. if I remove atiradeonx2000 the monitor appears dark immediately. strange thing Posted Image . the matter is that my card is not compatible with ati4600contr. every black screen. maybe someone has trying others framebuffer? maybe modifing boot file source? motmot not sounds good for me...
If anyone hate like me the green apple I will say you can remove it unchecking the translucient bar in desktop preferences
