Jccool that is great news.

I am happy for you that you got it to work. Also nice that you put the modified kexts up.

Still I must also be possible to get the DVI port going. Maybe you can get this with a new release of the Natit Uni installer.

I am also curious what kext beside the ATIRadeonX1000.kext is exactly load on you system. Meaning which driver in ATINDRV.kext, Alopias or Sphyrna is compatible with the X1950 XT.

Hello,


well I'v tried several times with natitinstalleruni thing with no luck... I used the x1000 kexts from the x1000installer thing not the ones from 10.4.8. I did not touch atindrv at all. I just went into info plist of x1000.kext and swaped 7240 id for 7244 (under X1900 series) then went to x1000ga plugin kext and swapped 72c1 twice for 7244 and rebooted with only dvi hooked and monitor sez dvi no signal, try on other port and still dvi no sig. then do dvi vga adapt on left port and boots with terrable gamma and 1024x768 but qe and ci are supported then boot dvi ta vga on right port and boots instantly at 1280x720@60 with beautiful gamma! all resez my lcd can do are present. qe/ci/rotation! when i boot with -v (verbose) i don't see the x1000 booting and certainly don't see anything related to sypholis and alopolis lol lol. Allz I know is its the fastest, funnest, stablest computer I'v ever had, Iv forgoten about Windex...*Windows sry, their 1 in the same lol. My mac plays HD x264 movies perfect no skip! Ilife all works perfect, logic express workin great, ripples in dashboard. I'm not gunna get greedy and mess around anymore, if anyone gets dvi goin, cool but I'm overly satisfied, its 10 times faster and 10 times more stable than when I tried it with an x1600. Mac has never told me my pc *mac isn't strong enough to run a certain app. Well im gunna install motion 2 n apurture soon and Ill report the results.




PS To Everyone:


As I have mentioned, I bought a new HD which cost 80$, I bought it mainly so that I could continue making and supporting the Jccool Method.

During the course of the 10.5.3 installer there has been 600 downloads of the file;
of those 600 people only 2 have donated totaling 10$ worth of donations;
I'am asking for everyone who uses the Jccool Method and for all those that want it to stay alive to please make a donation. If 1 in 6 of you who downloaded it donated a dollar, it would covr the whole HDD cost!
Thank You For Your Support,
Jccool

Hi,

I'd like to help you with your x1600 pro but I sold mine, it was sickeningly slow compared to the x1950xt. Can you give me your device id and Ill do the same as I did for mine, maybe it will work, if your interested please tell me your device id.

Jccool


Have you tried the boris installer, thats how I got my x1600 pro (asus) to work.
go here: http://www.necnet.de...00_3.5.mpkg.zip unzip it and run the .mpkg file and reboot, its pretty self guiding, Id recomend a fresh install of osx b4 or remove any mods youve made,

Also, did your card work b4 u installed 10.4.8 amd? this is the version i'm using and im not having any probs,

Hope this helps :)

Yeah i do remember having full resolution options once (I think 10.4.7 or 10.4.6 I still have 10.4.7 dvd so could confirm if needed....) without blur, how would i go about getting the ID for you???

ID is 0x71c2

Attached File  Picture_1.png   53.06KB   855 downloads

I have 10.4.7 JAS AMD/Intel, 10.4.8 AMD SSE3 Combo Update, 10.4.8 AMD TEST and current installation is a clean 10.4.8 AMD FINAL install

I'm more than happy and willing to test out any drivers although i will confess i don't really understand all the terminal commands etc still a n00bie with macs and linux :P however with direction we all learn in the end :)

feel free to contact me using WLM/MSN messenger or email or skype or PM or whatever, I'm a pretty open and reachable guy :P

EDIT2:
Boris Installer resulted in this :)

I didn't thoroughly read your problem descriptions, but the BLUR really catch me.
In my experience, blur will occur if we use bad quality (cheap one) vga splitter (one monitor for two PC). Do you use it??

ok i have full support after 10.4.7 JAS DVD

I still have full support if i update using 1.4.8 AMD SSE3 Combo Update from a few months ago.

That installer uses the Boris method i think, So i copied all the kexts starting with ATI and zipped them up (i have them on my memory stick)

Formatted, installed 10.4.8 AMD FINAL (back to 1024x768 and no qe/ci obviously) tried what was mentioned in my other thread on this which was using natit but deleting geforce.kext this worked....mostly well it went through all the darwin loading natit loaded went to those pink, purply blue squares i showed previously then loaded up a blue screen :o i thought this is it give it a few seconds and up will pop desktop.... but no nothing :(

So uninstalled natit,
Tried with boris instead, just did squarey stuff again,
Uninstalled

Copied over ATINDRV, ATIX1000, ATIX1000GA, ATIX1000GL, ATIX1000VA stuff from the backup i made previously, into extensions did sudo {censored} to move and register it, rebooted and now after darwin does it's stuff i get a black screen BUT I can see my mouse and i know the system is operating because i heard someone sign in on Messenger

where should i go from here? I have a feeling that maybe this is related to the latest kernels on the AMD FINAL DVD maybe?

Hello,


I think it could possibly have to do with the MachKernel but i'm not sure because my specialty is Video Cards (tried to get the x850xt working for 2 years so got some OSXpeiriance in that) I known that when I installed the 10.4.8 combo update, the installer.app stopped working so I said **** this, ill just get the final dvd and that was fine, but if it works on 10.4.7, i'd suggest you stay with that, if you need any 10.4.8 kexts for say a wireless keyboard or something then just copy over the 10.4.8 kext and it should work. I think this will give you the most functionality in the end, when 10.4.9 comes out, i'm not installing it, iv got all my progies in UB form and they're all workin great, I sugest you just stay with 10.4.7, if you really want to persue the 10.4.8 situation, ask other ppls with an x1600 maybe,

For BarryBar:

Hello,

I was thinking, since the x1950 pro is based on the x1900 gt, and the x1900 gt is based on the x1900xt (r580) then I think you should try the Jccool Method. If it worked for my sapphire x1950xt based on the x1900 xt then it should work on yours,
i think it is worth a try :(.

I have modified what I did for mine to fit 7280. I really think you should give it a try.

If you do delete anything natit related and delete the 5 files included in my zip from your extensions folder and sudo mv the ones i gave, then sudo chown root...

Hope it helps your qe/ci situation, remember, vga only and right dvi port.

Good Luck,

Here is the link to the zip

hi! can someone please put on the extensions.zip again, the first link doesnt work anymore...

also, is this the best way to get the x1950xt to work? does the 1x00-driver not work at all for my card?

also, will the animated scroll thing at the bottom work when i install it correctly??

Hi,
I'm away from home right now but Ill do a repost when I do, sorry, free web hosting kinda suckz XD
As far as I know this is the best was to do it, its eith my way or the highway or the backroads(find a new way)I'v tried natit,boris, everything, best was is this, no dvi but u get vga with all resez on port to right don't know bout dual screen, i have 1 monitor with dvi and vga, i tried hookin op vga on right dvi on left no luick, dvi overrides it and dudnt boot,

You get qe/ci/rotat/ and never have to worry bout sysyem requirments on apurture etc, final cut studio works great, only works on device id 7244, (x1950xt) reconized as x1900 series,


Repost drivers in few hours,

(dont use the x1950pro.zip btw it is for the pro not xt, havnt tested on pro, compiled for someone,

hi! thanx a lot for the effort!

i download that now and will try it. i already messed around with that kext stuff a little, seems to work so far.

but if i get a kext file, can i take it and copy it in the extensions folder to make it work? or do i have to change some other file for that?

and those kexts which are in the extensions folder, are they all being loaded on startup? if not, how do i activate them?

cu later!
