I've been trying all this methods without getting anywhere all the afternoon ;)

I'm using a Thinkpad T60p (the version with the FireGL v5250) with OS X Tiger 10.4.8 (I think is the same finetuned have)
If I'm right, my device id is 71d4-1002, but no matter what I try, I can't get to enable QE and use the native 1680x1050 resolution.

Does anyone have the Kexts I should be using?
Thanks a lot for your patience!!!

Zaiden


First try to edit your org ATIRadeonX1000.kext to see if you can get QE/CI with 1024x768 . Detail about how to is in my previous post .

I've already tried, but nothing happened...
The thing is that, in order to boot without kernel panic, I had to delete (previously backed up) all the ATI* files in the Extensions directory. So... now I dont know which files should I be re-adding (after modifying them with my EDID and device ID, of course).

If someone has already modified the files to get the v5250 working, please upload them here! :)

Oh, and thanks again for the patience... I hope I will have it working soon :)

Okay , I will list the file you need .
+ ATIRadeonX1000*
+ ATIRNDRV.kext
+ 10.4.5 ATINDRV.kext ( from my files in previous post ).

Here is the step (details you can read on my previous post)
First copy all file I list to Extensions & chmod , chown .
1) Edit RadeonX1000.kext with your device id (hext edit & plist edit) --> you should get QE/CI with 1024x768 & mouse tearing
2) Instead of using ATIinject , use my new edited Natit ( you only need to replace included EDID with your EDID ) --> you should get full resolution with QE/CI

PS : If you don't know clearly about any steps , post here . Please read my guide carefully about hex edit , plist edit , replace kext . Only use my ATINDRV.kext & NatitX1700.kext , remaining files use org file included with your installation & edit your own .


@all : I replace ATIinject with my edited NatitX1600 & get much more stable driver , no weird behaviour at boot time , ... . So if you encounter problems with ATIinject , use my new file . Only need to replace EDID , no need to edit device-id . I hex edit included natit file to get model name X1700 , so if you want different model name hex edit your own .

You can extract it from your Tiger DVD by pacifist or grab it here ( mine is from 10.4.10 Kallyway )

Why you don't use pc_efi_v5 & upgrade to 10.4.11 . Im running great with 10.4.11 Vanilla kernel .

Thanks for the file!
Once I get an stable configuration I'll start updating.

Oh! One more thing: when I was editing the Info.plist from ATIRadeonX1000.kext\Contents, I had to add the 0x71d41002 entry, because there was no 0x71dE1002 to edit... I don't think that would be a problem... do you?

Thanks again!

I give up. (:blink:);

There is no way to 1680x1050.

Just lock 1400x1050, but QE/CI is supported, there is still tearing.

Even thehaun's Natit X1700 doesn't work.

I'm almost there... now, I finally have QE enabled, but the display is behaving oddly... It has an horizontal line at 3/4 from top to bottom and the image is repeated... and I cant see 1/4 of the screen that is on the right.

I replaced this files:
+ ATIRadeonX1000*
+ ATIRNDRV.kext
+ 10.4.5 ATINDRV.kext ( from my files in previous post ).

Edited with my Device ID and used NatitX1700 with my EDID (didn't try with ATIInject)

Almost! Almost!!

Any ideas??

@cielbleu : If you has mouse tearing it mean your ATINDRV is not loaded . Go to about this mac --> extensions to see if ATINDRV is loaded ( if ATINDRV 10.4.5 doesn't work for you try with 10.4.7)
Can you view the logs & post here the section related to ATIinject or Natit .

@Zaiden :
ATIRadeonX1000* --> did you copy all file with this prefix ( about 3 or 4 files )
Try with ATIinject ( remember to remove Natit ) .
If it doesn't work try this step .
+ Remove ATIRadeonX1000.kext
+ cp , chmod , chown 10.4.5 ATINDRV.kext
+ Try ATIinject or Natit to see if you can get full resolution ( with ATIinject remember to edit your deviceid). Forget about QE/CI , concentrate on getting full resolution first . Check your EDID carefully .

If it still doesn't work , consider to upgrade to 10.4.11 or Leopard so I can help you better . If you want to reinstall 10.4.10 Kalyway or Leopard is a good choice to start . In my opinion I think fresh install & backup extensions make thing easier ( I have reinstalled Leopard , Tiger more than 5 times to try & experience with various method ) .


@cielbleu,Zaiden : if you need , upload your org ATIRadeonX1000.kext , your EDID , deviced-id . I 'll modify it for you .

(this is the 3rd time I write this post... Fu**ing internet...)
I finally got it to work on Tiget 10.4.8.

Here are the files I used: http://www.mediafire.com/?3d01tyogjzx

Remember... I have a T60p with a 1680x1050 screen and a FireGL V5250 video card.

The only problem Im still having is that every time the system starts the display is not well recognized and the image is show oddly, so I have to go to Display Configuration and press the Detect Displays button (I'm using ATIInject).

If you know how to fix this it would be great!

You use ATIinject or Natit ? Your problem is related to them .

I only have x360 version Tiberian Wars so can't test T_T . I have tested with some 3D casual games , cinebench R10 , opengl viewer , all work fine . Is there any more 3D applications cause you problem ( for testing purpose better to be freeware ) ?

Thinkpad T60p with FireGL V5250 + 1680x1050, perfectly working on Tiger 10.4.10 (video-speaking, of course...)

To make it work, just add/replace this extensions:

Oh, and one more thing... sometimes when the system starts up, there is no video... instead i only see a lot of black and white vertical bars... and I have to reboot.

Any idea?

ext-LCD is LG1730P using DVI-port now, in this case be MainScreen. F3JP is sencondly.


bad news is :

thx
