After some successes on this card I've been struggling for 3 days to try and get QE/CI on 5650m.
But my laptop didn't like the easy way so I've been reading dozens of topic and following dozens of guide.

In the end I succeeded!

I think this solution is nearly perfect. There's still something that can be fixed, but we have to work together.

Here's how i got it (If you find an easier way or if you think I've done something not useful, just share it)

BE SURE TO BE ABLE TO VNC IN YOUR LAPTOP!!!

  • Start from a clean 10.6.3
  • Get your card bios as shown here http://www.projectos...?showtopic=1029 (you must be in 32 bit mode to use this tool)
  • Rename the dumped bios 1002_68c1.rom annd put it in your Extra folder
  • Comboupdate to 10.6.6 in safe mode (-x)
  • Before reboot install Lion's ATI5000, ATISupport and ATIFramebuffer (they are here on the forum) using KextHelper
  • Overwrite your boot file with the one attached here that I compiled from Kabyl's source to make it work with 5650s
  • Reboot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes AtiConfig=READ BELOW
At this point we reboot setting the right Framebuffer to work with our card. I've found two working framebuffers that behaves differently:

A. Hoolock
If you get corrupted screen VNC into your laptop and try to change resolution. I couldn't find 1366x768 so installed Switchresx to get it.
STRANGE THING:If you attach an external monitor you get only a mirrored screen and System Profiler will report only a monitor attached.
So if you choose this way reboot with: GraphicsEnabler=Yes AtiConfig=Hoolock

B. Vervet
Again if you get corrupted screen VNC into your laptop and try to change resolution. I couldn't find 1366x768 so installed Switchresx to get it.
STRANGE THING:System profiler will report always 2 monitor attached even if you got no external monitor attached (and you can see it by looking at your laptop from VNC). OSX will behave like if you have an external monitor (you can drag windows etc..)
So if you choose this way reboot with: GraphicsEnabler=Yes AtiConfig=Vervet

I hope it's all clear.... And let's try altogether to solve the STRANGE THINGS :)

EDIT: I wanna thank hjs89 for suggesting Lion's kexts and for instructing me about recompiling Kabyl's boot. :)

Any recommendations on what VNC software to use (perhaps UltraVNC)?

On windows you can use TightVNC
On OSX you simply choose "connect to server" from menu in Finder

Added credits to hjs89 in the first post ;) Thank you friend!

this was my next plan, edit the boot file, wonderful job, i start my laptop with external and change res higher then it can handle and it switches the scrambled screen to fully display on LVDS so my thoery is when it boot the LCD screen it does it at a unsupported res, thus the scramble.


so my screen then switch, LCD external goes out of sync and my LVDS display turns on.




Hoolock

Flicker

Baboob

Vervet and Uakari go as extended for me.

Getting switchresx now to try as the OS only let's me choose 1344 lol

@EVERYONE Follow these directions.


ATI 5650m - Working FB is Eulemur, DVD Player and Frontrow work 100% DASHBOARD WATER RIPPLE EFFECTS!

Boot using the above files, also get your rom using these instructions.

First time you boot, boot using GraphicsEnabler=No, Install a program called ScreenresX which you can set screen res 1366x768 for your laptop screen, save it.

Reboot using GraphicsEnabler=Yes, Now you will have QE/CI, Full resolution!

Hmm hope someone can test it with the 4xxx range (I have a 4330).
I'm not going to reinstall OSX just to find out it's not working. :robot:

Congratulation for successfully enabled the internal LCD.

One question though. You & checcco mention to get the ROM file but I don't see the ROM file is being used. I thought the ROM file will only be use when booting with "UseAtiROM=Yes". Does the "UseAtiROM=Yes" flag is set as default in the modified boot file (first post)?

I just checked... You're right, my method works without vga rom too

Thanks for your previous replies about VNC software, I'm using an app from RealVNC on my iPhone.

[edit] Guess I have to install ##### before upgrading... [/edit]

Thanks everyone!! I am now on SL 10.6.6 with QE/CI using Eulemur (semi-transparent taskbar, ripple effects and resolution change ;)

The only problems I have now is that my laptop trackpad and keyboard and my sound isn't working :( (where they were working fine before)

[edit] AtiConfig=Hoolock works for me too, still no internal keyboard/trackpad though [/edit]

AppleACPIPS2Nub and ApplePS2Controller kexts inside Extra should fix you right up :)

@Checcco we are going to have a lot of trouble getting our cards to work in Lion, Tried quite a few things evo, ATY, our cards dont auto detect so we need injectors but our FB's dont work in Lion, Strange I know. Now I'm wondering what is the difference of using Lion kexts inside SL compared to lion kexts in lion.
