Awesome. Fixes my "stall on boot" issue with a Club 3D 8400GS 256 MB.
Can you describe what exactly you did to those kexts?

By the way, it is possible to increase the version numbers of your kexts so that they are loaded no matter what future updates might install in the system. In order to do that, rename the kexts (e.g., put the word "override" in front of the name), and change the version number by adding "99"in front of it (e.g., 2.0 --> 992.0" in the Info.plist files (I used the script below to do that prior to installation of the kexts). This way, the original kexts can stay where they are but your kexts will always override them.

PLISTS=$(find /Users/.../folder_where_your_nvidia_kexts_are/ -name *plist)
for PLIST in $PLISTS ; do
    NAME=$(echo $PLIST | sed -e 's|.plist||g')
    echo $NAME
    V=$(defaults read $NAME CFBundleVersion)
    SV=$(defaults read $NAME CFBundleShortVersionString)
    defaults write $NAME CFBundleVersion 99$V
    defaults write $NAME CFBundleShortVersionString 99$SV
    plutil -convert xml1 $PLIST
done

Attached are the 2 kexts with edited plist files to that they override (get loaded instead of) Apple's kexts. When a system update installs new versions, my version should "win".

Let me know if it works for you. Btw, I did not need the NVEnabler (I use GraphicsEnabler=Yes).

Using the same kexts with 9500GT in ML works great EXCEPT I'm not getting QE/CI.

I'm getting:
1. Dual Monitors
2. Max Resolution on both of them

Only thing left is QE/CI.

Anyone know what could prevent me from getting it? Do I need GeForce.kext?

in your case the solution will come by the activator or the NVEnabler.kext kexts should change this for others and try, you could also try for DSDT

Still not working for me, but then I'm using a integrated Nvidia 9300...
The NVDAResman.kext in your patch allows me to boot with software graphics acceleration but it's fixed resolution and SLOW!

Same here. I can NOT get this 9300M GS card to work correctly. It shows up correctly in System Information, but all I get is the standard 1024x768 resolution.

Working perfectly with my ASUS 8400GS including QE/CI with GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Thanks a lot.

I've got GraphicsEnabler = YES but if I throw in NVDAResman, it stucks at "NVEnabler::Probe fails"
I can't get resolution working, other than GraphicsMode.
I don't have EFI String in my Chameleon plist.

I am using GeForce 9200M GS on HP Compaq CQ45-101TX.

Anyone help?

I tried both methods from Vani and Matias. Neither works for me.

My graphics card is very old XFX NVidia 7900 GS 256MB. Worked very well under 10.7.3 with QE/CI.

If I don't boot in safe mode, the boot will stuck.
I need to remove the following kernel extensions in S/L/E to get it boot but only in 1024x768.


drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Sep 24 2011 GeForce.kext
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Sep 24 2011 GeForceGA.plugin
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Sep 24 2011 GeForceGLDriver.bundle
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Sep 24 2011 GeForceVADriver.bundle

But those are stock GeForce drive extensions. I would guess GeForce card won't work without them.
I also tried to copy all GeForceXXXX.kext from my working 10.7.3 (running in 64-bit) but no help.

Any ideas?
