I scroll through every link and topic each day searching and hearing the samething which is basicly "the mobility Radeon 3400 hd ati gpu card" will never work on mac os x and thats understandable but what every post lacks to tell any unlucky soul like me who is stuck with it is "WHY?".
What makes this card utterly unfixable than just the bare RadeonHD framebuffer.I don't intend on pissing everyone off but atleast knowing the reason can help me understand how to deal with it.So please anyone out there with the knowledge of what makes it impossible ,please share it here,hopefully others can also come to understand why!

Hi...
I have the same card...and this post is pretty useless....the reason is clear like the sun if you look well and there is no cospiracy under it LOL
You have to get angry with alle the 3400 mobility user that doesn't do anything...
We are a small part...so, "famous" developer don't care about this card...and that's right...
So...if you want that our card works, take all your friend that use this card and bring them here, maybe friends of your friends knows some good developer that can help...
I've already open this topic http://www.insanelym...howtopic=258401...
give it a read...
There are too many people that wants kext and don't even help...
So...
Like you I'm waiting...many old mobility card have our same problem...
Linearburn is on the good way for the native kext, but the LVDS screen is the major problem...I'd like to patch the framebuffer but I didn't understand what fb I have to patch....(you can find how to in many topic here)...

so...read before open this topic :)

Lol....Thanks man.... i truely understand that we who unfortunately own this card are in a minarity,i am also overwelmed at the proper framebuffer to use,if one chooses RadeonHD once looses the ability to get QE/CI but the particular apple ati framebuffers are stil a mistry thanks atleast for answering,atleast i know am not alone

Guess this post wasn't as useless as i thought,being playing around and though i havn't owned much info,but atleast i can be happy to report that atleast i was able to get near full resolution with the apple frambuffers by using a old Natit kext,1.5.59 i belive and also was a success modifying a 1.60 natit kext ,tried with ATY_Init but success was not attained.Anyway basiclly i can attain a reolution of 1152x864 resolution,not as cool and clean as my 1600x900 main resolution but its better than vesa,also i had to change my boot file in my root filesystem to a kabyl's own aka that means a kabyl boot file i attained from a post here,will have to dig to get yal the link or might just upload it,that kinda solves the memory allocation error you usually get during loadup when you have GraphicsEnabler=Yes on,basicly after installation though you can see the correct ram memory size on the System Profile: Hardware root tree,it actually isn't being recognize and no! maxmem=4049 or what ever size your ram is,does not work.
Anyway talk short: I attained gpu recognition using the natit kext and a legacyATIRadeonX2000.kext which just injected a few IOPCMatch id numbers into the usual ATIRadeonX2000 kext,i then modified the normal ATIRadeonX2000.kext in the extension foler to include the the list in the legacy kext into it so it worked without the legacy kext but still at this point no QE/CI and full resolution is not yet attained.Did a readeondump using Dong's RadeonDump tool,it seems the kext or atleast one of the kext don't recognize my device id,so it defaults it from a 0x95c4 to a 0x95c0,right now the Megalodon framebuffer seems to be the one working ,tried the Iago framebuffer but no success.

Tip: when you look through the latest natit.kext Info.plist,well i will just paste it so you guys can see the difference between the original and my modified one,am using a Ati Mobility Radeon 3470 which lies in the Ati Mobility Radeon 3400 series(M84),so the changes where just simple adding my device id+vendor id and also duplicating the ATI Radeon 3400 Series key and dict change Iago to Megalodon.

Short Method:
Instead of doing all that babble i put up there,just enter your ATIRadeonX2000.kext and replace your IOPCIMATCH with this

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>
<string>0x94001002 0x94011002 0x94021002 0x94031002 0x95811002 0x95831002 0x95881002 0x94c81002 0x94c91002 0x95001002 0x95011002 0x95051002 0x95071002 0x95041002 0x95061002 0x95981002 0x94881002 0x95991002 0x95911002 0x95931002 0x94401002 0x94421002 0x944A1002 0x945A1002 0x94901002 0x949E1002 0x94801002 0x95401002 0x95411002 0x954E1002 0x954F1002 0x95521002 0x95531002 0x94a01002 0x94411002 0x94431002 0x94601002 0x94611002 0x944c1002</string>

and also remove the PCIRootUID=1 ,thats is set in com.apple.boot.plist,seems to interfare with it,dont know why!...guess whats left isto find out how to add this mobility to the list in ati.c and find its connector settings,mayb we can create a custom personality from it....and also theres a kabyl's boot file to resolve the memory allocation error attained when GraphicsEnabler=Yes is put on in your com.apple.boot.plist.so now we know which framebuffer works now how and what to edit to make it work is whats left.
