Im trying it but i cant.

My PC: AMD Athlon X2, 3GB RAM, ATI HD5450 on PCIex.

I installed SnowLeopard Retail with EFI Empire.

I have chocolate kernel & Chameleon RC5.

I do all steps (install hd500, copy rom, kexts, 10.6.4 update, graphics update...).

After install graphics update, reboot -v shows "Device in slot: SLOT-1" but osx doesnt load.

Sorry For My English BadPosted Image
My graphics card ati radeon hd 5450 working on snow leopard after installed 10.6.6.

And how do make them work

Only For Kernel Vanilla

Waring Backup Your Data

1.Install ATI Chameleon bootloader for Radeon HD5000
2.The ROM image under /Extra should be named <vendorid>_<deviceid>.rom(ATI 5450 is 1002_68f9.rom)
3.Install Atiframebuffer.kext and ATY_init.kext(ATI5000Controller don’t need)
4.Edit com.apple.boot.plist

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=i386</string
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>UseAtiROM</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>AtiFb</key>
<string>Hoolock</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1400x1024x32</string>

ATI 5450 tested Fb working on Uakari,Vervet,Hoolock and other untested.Recommend Hoolock.

5.Install update 10.6.4 reboot and install graphic update 1.0 (if you get kernel panic after installed graphic update 1.0,try boot –x to safe mode and remove all ATIRadeonX3000.kext,I use hfs+ for windows to remove it )(the graphic update 1.0 only for 10.6.4)
6.Open OSX86Tool repair permissons.
7.Install Update 10.6.6 will add ATIRadeonX3000.kext,ATI5000Controller.kext

After reboot will it work,you need to do step by step,If you get any error tell me. :)
link download


http://supportdownlo...csUpdate1.0.dmg

ATI 5450 is 68f9
ATY_init.kext not support 5450 so it will display the 5500




Apply For All ATI 5000 Series,you need to make own rom and other frambuffer.
Good Luck!!! :P



hi white_apple_x86, i have not read carefully your condition when apply your guide, sorry my noob question here: i dont understand about "only for kernel Vanilla", this kernell how to identify in my OS , in my com.apple.boot.plist i found line say " mach kernel" is that enough to apply your guide ?
thanks your reply
your last reply is till have problem!

hi - first thanks for this tutorial! :)

i did the full tutorial - but iam still struggling with some issues.

the system profiler shows me under pci-card a 5500 serie instead of my 5450. the atifb is always Uakari instead of my custom setting like hoolock.

i cant change my screen solution to full hd - is shows me 1600*1200 instead 19200*1200.

when boot -v aty_init card 68f9 was not posted.


what iam doing wrong?

Hi!

I followed your guide step by step, but I still can't make my Asus EAH5450 working on Snow Leopard.

At point #3 you wrote:

3.Install Atiframebuffer.kext and ATY_init.kext(ATI5000Controller don’t need)

WHERE EXACTLY must I install Atiframebuffer.kext and ATY_init.kext? In root/EXTRA or in S/L/EXTENSIONS?

Is your 1002_68f9.rom valid for my ASUS and other brands? Or must I extract my own rom (in windows 7)?

Hope you can help me.

Atiframebuffer.kext and ATY_init.kext : u can using kext helper to install these file OR just copy these file to S/L/extentions, and then run kext utility to apply. kext helper and kext utility you can download at kexts.com
1002_68f9.rom: is correct your graphic card now, no need to change file name, just copy to extra

dear white paper: thanks for your guide, my computer is ok now, thanks a lot !

Hello,

I have problems with booting after installing the graphics update. It boot to the grey apple screen with that rotating circle. I let it do for 30 minutes but it stays at that screen. I have also removed the atiradeonx3000.kext under windows but that didn't help. I have a dell inspiron with a core i5 and the ati radeon hd 5450. Under windows i use the drivers for the desktop version. So will it work under mac os x to?

the 1002_68f9.rom sems not to work with my spahhire 5450. it makes no difference if i put the files in the extra folder. the profiler shows me always 5500 serie instead of the 5450 and not the right screen solution. also i cant change the solution.

@bas:


you must boot -v to see the log. maybe you have kernel-crash. it is important to deleteatixradeon3000.kext and the ati5000.kext otherwise you cant boot.

my solution was to install a secend version of mac osx to delete the files.

but the graphic card dont work properbly greeting from germany

What about the file ATI5000Injector installed in root/EXTRA/EXTENSIONS by chameleon_hd5000.pkg?

Is it needed or must be deleted?

I was able to get everything working, but after I updated to 10.6.6, I get the endless loading screen or a kernel panic at the apple logo. Any one have any ideas? lol I was sooo close, CI/QE was the only thing not working.

Iatkos is not vanilla kernel,this topic only for mac os x retail(vanilla kernel),i tried with iatkos v7 and such error you can download kernel vanilla or try remove ati5000controler.kext and boot with -f -v
my vanilla kernel 10.6.0 http://www.mediafire...5kf9dx34yv7jr3a

Well i got some news.

I do this:
- install retail with empire efi
- install chameleon rc5 & chocolate kernel & atiata kext
- update to 10.6.6 & install usb kexts
- install all your files (rom, hd500, kexts... update boot.plist)

After this, i boot and i got a kernel panic: "Unable to find driver for this platform ACPI"

Only can i load OSX with Empire EFI CD. If i boot with this, i can load it, and my ATI HD5450 works perfectly with QE/CI.

What can i do???

Thx

Anyone using this with Kabyl's boot and the AtiConfig key? (and maybe a ROM?)

it seems unnecessary to use the modified framebuffer and ATI init anymore.
