Hi there guys. So, basically, I made this topic for creating a kext for this driver that supports resolutions, external monitor and QE/CI, as I have it in my Dell E6500 and I don't really intend to change it, and I'm already a developer so I decided to go for it.

The way I'm doing it is to compare files of the GMA X950 driver and the GMA X3100 driver. PookyMacMan helps me with it and he said the hardest part is the exe, so he said that we shall use IDA to retrieve the original code and I'll do that and then post the code, and then we can see how to get it done.

Just a little note, this will take extremely much time mostly. I'm doing it for fun so I don't care.

Well, IDA Pro. Does anyone know how this thing works? It's for Windows by the way.

I believe you're better off getting the Linux sources and trying to use those as your sources rather than the x3100 and x950.

No unfortunately they aren't and that's the problem I faced when I tried to do it for the x4500 back on snow leo. I'm more on the side of iOS devving, I've created a few apps here and there for Mac OS X including one driver but cross compiling from Linux to OS X would definitely be a challenge for me as it's not an area I'm familiar with.

Me too just saying. Although working at the Mac zone is worth it.

That's why I'm comparing both files of the Mac ones, checking the changes, and try to make my own changes for 4500 :)

Ahh sweet. If you get stuck and frustration comes knocking at your door, just drop me a message and I'll try and help the coding insanity cool down as it does happen time after time even to veterans. :P

You referring to this IDA? http://www.hex-rays....ida/order.shtml

They do claim that they have a Mac and Linux version though I'm not gonna buy just to find out.ยบ
