I do think this is a NVIDIA bug somewhere that only OS X "exploits", but I have no proof.

Not as of yet. I've been busy with the holidays, Leo, and whatever bit of life I have left. :P

Hopefully when the New Year comes, so will some new development ;)

Current News: I still don't have the proper registers for this chipset. Without them, I have nothing.

I think I've almost got it working (at least compiling correctly...) Hopefully there will be something new during this week.

It might work, but it's also using code that was optimized for a different chipset (improper timing and registers, both of which should be closer to correct in what I'm working on.) This beta will also implement a couple nifty features that will be revealed when it's released.

Not yet I'm not. If this beta loads and detects the chipset correctly, then there might be hope. When that happens, I'd like to see xbench disk scores (only) before and after. Not even going to be concerned with data loss until the chipset runs at the proper acceleration (UDMA).

Kext is almost ready for testing. Just going to do a load check on this end and it's off to upload the beta. Whoo!

NOTE: THIS WILL ONLY WORK ON 10.4.8!

Kext is ready for testing. This is still in beta and is not expected to work properly. I have provided a little shell script that will repair the permissions on the kext and delete Extensions.mkext. Just drop IOATAFamily.kext into /System/Library/Extensions/ and run the script. Report back with what happens.
EDIT: Removed for further coding.

Can I test it on an old 10.4.7 rig or do I have to use 10.4.8??

Well.... I would like to take this moment to direct your attention to that colorful bird over there... ;)

Sorry.
