I installed ATI HD4350 Successfully:

- Install Iatkos S3 v2

- update 10.6.5 combo update

- Bootloaders : Chameleon from Iatkos S3v2 installer or install Chameleon.693.zip

- add ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext to /E/E/

- Add this flag to your com.apple.boot.plist: (Found in /Extra) with GraphicsEnabler Yes

- Delete ATI4500Controller.kext in S/L/E

- Run pfix

Its run well on dual display as mirror on VGA and DVI or HDMI

But I want to get dual display NOT as mirror, so independent display1 (VGA) and display2 (HDMI), ANARCHiNTOSH, can you help me?

ATI4350 does not give you non-mirrored dual display :D I tried for a long time to sort this out, but there is no way i found. A cheap nVidia card will get you it.

I'm actually on 10.6.6 I tried all ways but i still can't get it;

There is NO WAY to use the 4600controller every time i Try to use it (injection or direct editing) i'm stuck at the boot page with the White Rolling Wheel moving forever.

I've tried with a Kext found over kexts.com called RadeonHD.kext it actually works with many resolution But i still can't get any QI\QE and can't play any video.

I don't know how to do. I'm really desperate.

Hi Anarchintosh, I tried a lot of the methods described that I found to install my new Gygabite ATI 4550 card, but without success, and I have observed that the card is recognized as 0x95521002 (meaning Mobile M92 HD 4350). This PID is included in info.plist of ATIX2000Controller.kext but not recognized at all. Though, is working at highest resolution supported by my monitor 1280x1024, unfortunately without QE/CI. Any suggestions? Thank you for your full effort in solving the problems for this stubborn cards. :wacko:

Hi guys!

I've a mobility 4570 card, I've activated QE/CI but I've the green apple bug. Is there any way to fix it? (I can't use 10.6.2 kexts) Do you know why it happens?

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


You must try another Frambuffer or edit one for your graphic card. Look at bcc9's post.

I want to say that this works FLAWLESSLY with Mac OS X Lion DP3 (with ATY_Init) and Mac OS X 10.6.2 for ATI Radeon HD 4350 on VGA. Thanks a lot for this guide :)

Switch to a DVI Screen if you're using a VGA. VGA-DVI Dongles, VGAs and HDMIs won't work with 10.6.7

added support for dual display on dvi/vga (not hdmi) :P
atiframebuffer 10.6.5. Attached File  ATIFramebuffer.kext.zip   107.65KB   132 downloads
this atiframebuffer works well with motmot and peregrine (rc4 & rc5 bootloaders)
If you have problems with second display, try change res, freq, and finally try to connect only dvi monitor before boot then connect also the second one. (there are some issue to fix)
If you have latest update don't forget to install 10.6.5's atisupport and ati4600controller.
I will add 10.6.8 framebuffer as soon as possible

Hello,

Thank you for your guide. However, I can not get my 4350 to boot fully.

1. If I do install (NAWCOM bootloader plus retail dvd) with Chameleon 2 RC5 (790) and 10.6.7 update I can boot to a vesa 1024x768 desktop.

2. If I do (Number 1) plus follow your guide for (10.6.5/6), i get boot screen and spinning wheel and no boot

3. If I do (Number 2) plus add ATY_init and EVOenabler I get past the boot screen but i loose signal to monitor during boot to desktop

I use a DVI connection to monitor.

Thank you for any help you can give me to get this to work

Try my framebuffer posted above. It works with ati 10.6.5 kexts so use them, atisupport ati4600, atiframb, and. Anarchintosh dummy. Support motmot vga dvi. Use rc5 chameleon (it load default motmot)

ATI Radeon 4350
Guide for Snow Leopard

Helpful Information
Currently on 10.6.3 through 10.6.6 you will get a green apple () in top left of transparent menu bar instead of the standard black one () and some OpenGL issues. On 10.6.2 you will get the same OpenGL issues but no green apple.
10.6.5/6 provides the best performance for ATI4350, so use that if you can.
You must apply the OSX update before you go through the steps.
E/E stands for /Extra/Extensions/
S/L/E stands for /System/Library/Extensions/
You may find apple's combo updates useful.
To find a combo update, google "(your snow leopard version eg. 10.6.2) combo update"

How to update from different OSX versions
As an OSX86er i highly recommend you have two installations of OSX on your hackintosh.
Your main OSX installation that you use regularly, and a secondary installation for testing/rescue/updating.
This can be on a thumb drive or a separate partition or a different hardrive.
When you update your OSX, i recommend downloading the combo update and applying it from your secondary installation to your main installation. Then you can run through the guide steps. This helps to avoid complications.

How to do a fresh install of OSX with ATI4350 support
Again, i recommend setting up a secondary OSX installation before setting up a main OSX installation.
If your secondary installation will not boot, you can try using -x boot flag or this kext moving trick, to get it to boot into a crap graphics mode from which you can set up your main installation with full graphics support.
From your secondary installation, install to your main installation the retail disk, a combo update to 10.6.2, 10.6.3, 10.6.4 or 10.6.5 then apply the guide steps to your main installation. Do not boot into your main installation until you have done everything.

10.6.4 information
I strongly advise users to use 10.6.5/6, and if not 10.6.2 or 10.6.3.
10.6.4 method is a bit crap/confusing, but fully works.
You need to do the special steps below, then follow the other steps in this guide.
Special 10.6.4 Steps:
Replace all of 10.6.4's ati kexts that can be found in S/L/E with the ones from 10.6.3 S/L/E . By S/L/E ati kexts i mean all kexts whose filename begins with "ATI".
To make it easier for you, here are the 10.6.3 ATI kexts.
Do not install the "SnowLeopardGraphicsUpdate1.0" which appears in Software Update.

If you ever want to update from 10.6.4 to 10.6.5/6, you will need to replace the 10.6.3 ATI kexts with the 10.6.4 vanilla ati kexts before going through the guide.


Bootloaders:
For 10.6.2 / 10.6.3 / 10.6.4 install:
OR
It has been reported (but not guaranteed) that PC_EFI 10.6 works for DVI, while Chameleon RC4 works for VGA.

For 10.6.5/6 install the latest revision of Chameleon 2 RC5
i have only got it to work with DVI...

Kexts: (these only inject device-id into correct kexts)
Download
For 10.6.2 add ATI4350.Fix.v0.kext and ATI4350.Fix.v1.kext to /E/E/

For 10.6.3 there are two methods
Method A:

add ATI4350.Fix.v1.kext to /E/E/
Method B: (might provide better graphics performance)
ignore the fix.kexts and install these kexts to /S/L/E/

For 10.6.4 add ATI4350.Fix.v1.kext to /E/E/
Also follow the special 10.6.4 steps mentioned before

For 10.6.5/6 add ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext to /E/E/

Add this flag to your com.apple.boot.plist: (Found in /Extra)
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>

Open your boot.plist with Textwrangler, add flag and save it.
Download for an example of how it should be added. (dont just put it in /Extra!)

Additional Necessary Steps:
For 10.6.5/6: it will not work if you have device-id in ATI4500Controller.kext (found in /S/L/E/)
Delete ATI4500Controller.kext
Optional Steps for 10.6.5/6: If you want to make extra sure that you have the right kexts, delete all kexts in S/L/E that begin with ATI... Then put these kexts into S/L/E.

For all OSX versions:
Delete /E/Extensions.mkext and /S/L/caches/com.apple.kext.caches
Download and install pfix if you don't already have it.
Open the OS X Terminal, type pfix, press enter, select your OSX installation drive and run it.
You have now fixed permissions and refreshed your kextcaches.

Reboot and enjoy!

Troubleshooting:
If you think you have messed up your S/L/E ati kexts, you can open the combo-update diskimages with Pacifist navigate to S/L/E in the disk image.
This lets you get the vanilla kexts from official OSX updates.
Also, try booting with ignore kextcaches flag -f. if this works run pfix as soon as you have booted into osx.



Can any of this work with OS X Lion???

Recently my graphics card had gone for replacement and in the meantime was using the onboard graphics. Also I installed OS X Lion 10.7 through Mac App Store. It installed and is running all successfully.

Now when I got my card replaced with a new one, I tested it on my OS X Lion by starting into verbose mode first with the card installed. The system booted all fine and reached my Lion desktop. After which I followed 2 tutorials, One from hackintosh site and another from tonymacosx86 site but with no results.

All I get is a mouse cursor on a grey screen and nothing more.... Please tell me a procedure that might actually work with Radeon HD4350 on OS X Lion.

will this kext work with 10.6.8 installed via retail disk and ##### + #####?


Hi Guys....from this topic started, i always trying many method, including this anarchintosh tutorial. well unfortunately, my card is not that easy enough with this tutorial, i always stuck...even i try changing version chameleon with recommended tutorials, but i dont have the best result and always stuck again. But Now, finally with 10.6.8 combo update, and kext files from Anarchintosh is really working with SL 10.6.8 and i can say it's accidentally happened to be success :))

my hardware,
mainboard : ASUS p5gc/mx1333
processor : intel core 2 duo 2 ghz
dram 2GB ddr
vga : i have a few including internal gma950 in motherboard, zotac nvidia 8400 GS 512 DDR3 and HIS ATI RADEON HD 4350 512 DDR2
my ati preview link is in here http://www.hisdigita...duct2-392.shtml

I was install using SL 10.6 Retail Disk * which is comes from mac book pro
After that, i install 10.6.6 combo update >> apparently i was wanna try updating to Lion, but i always fail, i don't know why my lion file is first launch in mac store not a golden master edition.
to make sure again, i install ##### 4.02 for lion, to make sure is it boot or not my lion but.... null - nothing happened :((

so, i stuck and i already installed ##### 4.02 lion edition ---> yeah but i use it for my snow leopard :D
because frustrated, i never try how is 10.6.8 update works... how is my ATI now, is it still working or nope? well finally desperately i try change my bios to read PCI E first, and using ati. funny thing is, it is booting!!!! even without driver injection, ATY_INIT , etc. of course, only 1024x768 without acceleration.

then , i remember i still have anarchintosh files, ATI4350.Fix.2.kext
so i pick this file and copy it to /System/Library/Extensions folder to my macos system running. *yup i only copy it using finder, but of course we can not just copy.. then i run pfix on terminal, choose drive to scan and repair permissions, and after finish, reboot. and voila! i'm shocked!!!! it's working and my logo apple on top left is became green....

Thank you so much Anarchintosh, your file finally make my day using my mackintosh beautifull... the suck is, this ati is better than my zotac nvidia 8400 GS 512 mb DDR3 =))

i already testing it with vga ports, dvi, and hdmi , and it's all working flawlessly.
here is my preview :

as you can see, i can change resolution into full hd 1080 :D hihihihi... i love my ATI now... more than ever...

i hope my accidental experience could help people who still love this graphics card

ATI4350 does not give you non-mirrored dual display :( I tried for a long time to sort this out, but there is no way i found. A cheap nVidia card will get you it.

anarchintosh thanks for your kexts, now i can use it with my SL 10.6.8 , every ports is working *except for audio hdmi

I also have an operating ATI Radeon HD 4350 thanx to the ATI.Fix.v2.kext.
This on a homebrew Mac with an Asus M4A78 mb, AMD Athlon2x 250 cpu, 2g DDR2 memory, iATKOS S3 v2 install updated through the OSX ComboUpdate to 10.6.8 with the 10.6.6 legacy_kernel installed. And the latest loader from Chameleon Wizard. Mine also looks exactly like Arikstress's images.

Hi Folks,

Following the instructions in this (and other) threads, I was able to get my system 99% working with 10.6.8, using an MSI HD 4350 video card. The last 1% is that the correct screen resolution is not available (1920x1080) and the apple in the top left corner is still green. Don't really care about the later, but can anyone offer help on how to fix the former?

Many thanks
