Andy i`m already using my hackingtosh good, i just try other gpu, ATI SAPPHIRE HD 6670 1gb ddr5, first i verify if the kext i have supported, and it does.... the aticontroller6000.kext works perfectly, so now im using this gpu with Q/E working good, so i install final cut 7, and Logic 9 , working perfectly, now i enjoy my hackingtosh too much...

anyway, i would like to know, if somebody can give me the knowledge about how can i develop the kext for ATI SAPPHIRE HD 6750 because i want to used that also on my hackingtosh...

it would be a contribution for the community, and i would like to do it!!!!

You need to check that the device id's exist in the ati.c file and the ati6000controller

Hi Andy.

I am already trying this for a week! And i can not get it to work.

I had a working snowleopard with my Asus p5qld-pro q9550 8GB ram and my GTX260

i bought 1 week my XFX 6870 (ZDFC) and i had alot of kernal panics but now that is not the issue anymore.

The problem now is that everything starts and my leopard starts also only my monitors drops out

and i can not get it to work it happend when i installed the new kexts from kexts website.

can you let me know what i am doing wrong? what information do you need?

Thank you very much !!!

Leopard????



Motherboard : P5QLD-PRO
RAM: 8 GIGS
Old Videocard: NVIDIA GTX260 (Dont have it no more!)
New Videocard: XFX HD6870 ("ZDFC" MODELNR)
OSX: SNOW LEOPARD 10.6.8

Everything worked fine with my GTX260 afterwords i replaced it with my new card the HD6870.
All worked fine til i installed the ATI6xxx PACK.
So if start my system, i can see everything (bootloader -v) till OSX goes in the GUI state and then my monitor just goes black but i can see on that my harddrives loads and it continues to start like always on the GTX.

Thanks Andy for taking your time :) i hope you have a solution for me i can not even enter my osx now i have a old Leopard system working now but got damn its anoying to go there all the time, the resolution sucks big time.

Cheers,

Ajayg

Hi, Im also trying to make my Sapphire HD 6770 Vapor-X works with Snow Leopard. People say that 6750 is like 5750 and 6770 is like 5770, so maybe we can help each other. I`ve tried everything you can think, as edit ati.c, force framebuffers, edit info.pslist, UseAtiROM. Currently im trying to change the device-id of my video card using DSDT (I just dont want to reflash the card). Ok, I have changed the device-id of my card with DSDT and now the system comes up with full resolution and dual monitors with unmodified kexts, but without QE/CI. It looks like the problem of old 5770. I just dont know what to do now. Maybe you can try a bit with DSDT too.
Good luck for us!

I got my 6950 working, but of course no Chess and no OpenGL Photoshop and probably no games.

Is it updated drivers we have to wait for, or it this fixable!?

EDIT: World Of Warcraft works, but there seem to be a lot of effects that doesnt show.

And sleep is borken.

all the branches of chameleon doesn't have ati 6490m key in ati.c
so in wiki I see
Radeon HD 6470M[88] 	January 4, 2011 	Seymour XT 	Caicos 	40 	PCIe 2.1 x16 	1024 	700
750 	800 	160:8:4 	2.8
3 	5.6
6 	12.8 	DDR3 	64 	11 	4.1 	224
240 		UVD3.0, PowerPlay
Radeon HD 6490M[88] 	January 4, 2011 	Seymour XT 	Caicos 	40 	PCIe 2.1 x16 	512 	800 	800 	160:8:4 	3.2 	6.4 	25.6 	GDDR5 	64 	11 	4.1 	256 		UVD3.0, PowerPlay

so my 6490 is Caicos.. too.. but has 1024.
I'm trying to alter the ati.c

I have read that in order for the 6950 to work you must restart the computer using a physical "reset" button. Is this the method that you used? I am trying to get mine to work, but unfortunately I do not have a reset button and evidently it is impossible to add one. So at the moment I am stuck, unless I can find a way to restart when it gets to the gray screen without a reset button.

Tried it. Doesn't work.


I'll try it again tonight, but I am almost 100% positive that this doesn't work.

It works for me because thats how I do it with my 6970 - I take it you do have the relevant kexts installed and are using lion?

Yes I actually used your installer package from netkas (post # 43). Although I am a little confused on which package to use. I decided to use the Native package as I do not know what you mean by "support in chameleon", but I have tried both. I am also on Lion, but I am not using 10.7.2 11C48 beta, as I thought all you needed was Lion and the kexts (or the installer package).

You dont need 11c48 - the package will install the kexts from that build anyway. The only requirement really is that you are running lion.

The native package should work regardless of your chameleon build being 6900 series friendly or not (not many builds are that I know of other than ones that I have built myself or shared on here) so you have at least picked the right package.
