Hi! I have ATI 5650 mobility, I did exactly like in tutorial x10 times. Typed UseAtiRom=Yes and WoW nothing happend! Dumped my own rom file, correctly renamed in /Extra, Chameleon r752, MacOs 10.6.7 Retail. Also Lion's kexts installed. But nothing - card not recognized, low resolution. Wtf?

Also I recorded this msg during Chameleon boot process:

ATI VGA Controller [1002:68c1] :: PCiRoot/Pci(0x2,0x0)/...
old pci command - 7
boot display - 0
dumping pci config space, 256 bytes
wrong BIOS signature: 0000
Not going to use bios image file
Found bios image
Adding binimage to card 68c1 from legacy space with size ec00
No BIOS replacement found.
Patching DMI table
Found SMBIOS System information Table 1
Customising system ID with: ....
ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml
....
Starting Darwin x86

What to do?

Hey,

I've got an HP 3165SF with i5-460m incorporated Intel vga hd graphics (8086:0046) + ATI 5650m
With the boot file my card is detected by Chameleon 'ATI Card Posted ... ATI RADEON 5650...'
BUT
Nothing is detected by OSX System... 10.6.6, 10.6.7, kernel 10.7.0, 10.7.3, 10.8.0 (beta)
lspci return nothing about ATI or other video cards than intel vga!!
system profile video too

The bios has no option for setting the video card as discrete

I'm searching a solution


Thanx

Can someone help me? I'm not sure what to do with the Boot.zip file that is in the first post. When I downloaded it in OSX it appears to be a terminal file of some kind. I ran it, it opens a terminal window which reads something like "unable to run binary file" (sorry I can't remember exactly what it says). I think maybe I'm using the downloaded Boot.zip file in the wrong way.

Also, I can see an Extra folder and all the other typical OSX folders (System, Users, etc) when I choose to view my hard drive in Finder. But, where are the chameleon files located? Are they hidden?

Thanks in advance for answering my nooby questions :wacko:

Hi all,

First of all, good work in getting this far! I'm currently trying to get my 5650 to work properly on my Sony Vaio VPC-EC3M1E.

What I did so far:

- Installed OSX Retail 10.6.3 using Nawcom's boot-CD (0.3.1)
- Combo-updated to 10.6.7
- Before reboot, installed the necessary kexts from Lion
- Replaced my boot file with the one from the first post
- Installed Chameleon RC5 r748 (with Kabyl support) using #####
- Installed SwitchResX and created a custom resolution of 1600x900 (native resolution for my LVDS)

If I boot with GraphicsEnabler=yes, I have native resolutions and full QE/CI on my HDMI output (1920x1080) and my external monitor (1280x1024). Unfortunately, the internal LVDS remains black.

Under System Profile, my card is correctly shown as an ATI 5000.

Based on the above posts, I tried to get my LVDS to work as well using different framebuffers. So far, I've tried Eulemur, Hoolock, Vervet, Baboon, Langur, Nomascus and Madison. All result in either a black LVDS or one with a weird-looking 'white cloud'. Booting goes fine though, since I can always VNC into the operating system. In all cases, available resolutions are 1024x768, 1280x1024 and 1680x1050. For some reason, the custom resolution in SwitchResX doesn't show up anymore. Also, if I check my video card under System Profile it shows 'ffff...' etcetera.

Can anyone point me in the right direction here? Any help would be much appreciated!

EDIT: Played around a bit more and made some progress. I extracted my screen's EDID based on a guide elsewhere and edited the DisplayProductID-717 file. If I boot in verbose mode, my card is identified as a 5650 Nomascus. Unfortunately, using Nomascus as a framebuffer doesn't work (leads to a deadbeef error).

Using Hoolock leads to my external monitor being identified as main, with nothing on the laptop screen. The closest I got was using Baboon as a framebuffer. It correctly identified my external monitor as an extended desktop, but the laptop screen still shows white lines, blocks, etcetera. I was able to VNC into OSX though and noted that all the correct resolutions are shown! Yet if I change them, the screen just flickers a bit.

The native resolution of my laptop screen is 1600x900. I read that maybe another solution is required for screens larger than 1440x900? Anyhow, hope someone can help me out!

How about a tutorial about how to overwrite the boot file. I saw like 3 ways to do it and 2 of them imply use of darwin code which doesnt seem to work for many of us.

Thanks

@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!

FB for ATI 5650 Mobility is EULEMUR!


atlee, Thank you very much for the advice, however I do all the steps above and still no Quartz Extreme. Grab does not work and only get Flash in Safari at 32-bit very choppy. I do have full screen resolution.

ATI 5650m working good but no Quartz Extreme!

HP dv7-4191nr corei7 720QM, ATI 5650m, beats audio, 17.3 1600x900, Mac OS X 10.6.6

Well, first of all, you need to disable switchable graphics in your BIOS (I understand from what you say you have it enabled) and set that value on "Discrete", then try again. If you had not success, follow the instructions to install the bootloader posted in the first post.

Hope this helps.

So finally i got my new notebook (Packard Bell LM85) working with OSX.
the problem is: my graphics card is an Radeon HD 6550 Mobility [1002:68c1] and identifies as HD 5650 Mobility and has also the same id... i tried the tutorial at page 1 but failed, osx keeps booting screen black, when i try to set resolution to 1366x786 via switchresx i doesnt gain effort... it just wants a reboot and then again screen is black. when i try my native res 1600x900 it has the same effect. so pls help me, how do i set switchresx up right...?? or wont this guide work for my card?

ps. sry for my bad english ;)
