I've managed to get full resolution with QE & CI on the 2185dx. Both VGA and HDMI working.

Thanks to smartie77 (used his shrike patcher and kexts) and Misha Vakulich (for the shrike personalities he posted in mucha's thread).

Attached are the kexts I used with instructions.

Does your internal screen work correctly too? And which OS X version do you use?

Hmm. then I should try this out as my internal screen is distorted

EDIT: I'm on 10.6.7, do you think the kexts will also work there?

It should. I think all the dv7 laptops use the same info for internal screen. The shrike personalities i used from Misha worked 100% and he has a different model. I patched the shrike info into both ATI4600 and ATIframebuffer.

Not yet, but I will now, as I've finished my first playthrough of Mass Effect 3

After I did a research I can make it this qe/ci works on

HP DV7 2185dx - 4650m


using Mountan Lion 10.8.2 , thanks to Serpentza and smartie77 .

1. I'm installing Hazard 10.6.6i without choose any VGA kext
2. I follow Sepentza guidance to install 4650m.zip
3. hazaed 10.6,61 Qe/Ci works perfect
4. I go to S/L/E and copy all ATI*.kext including all ATIRadeon*.kext to usb drive
5. Install Mountain Lion 10.8.2
6. I follow Sepentza guidance to install 4650m.zip in Mountain Lion 10.8.2
7. Using kext utility I install (replace) all ATI*.kext from the usb drive (that I copied all ATI*.kext there) to S/L/E
8. Restart the mountain Lion
9. Chack on AboutThis Mac/More Info/System report/Graphics/Displays, you can see that Mountain Lion recognised the VGA as ATI Radeon HD 46000 with Vram 1024 MB
