Hi Matrix_ekb,

do you have mouse artifacts showing up?

You could try using gfx strings inside com.apple.Boot.plist Link
ATIinject didnt work for me when installing 10.6.0 on a Asus A8JP / Radeon x1700.

EDIT: Also please make sure you got the correct EDID for your display.

In order to get rid of the mouse artifacts, you need an older ATINDRV.kext.
I wrote a installation tutorial for the a8jp, didnt post it yet, but here is the graphics related part and a package of kernel extensions i use and the configuration files.

Files:
- Package Attached File  AsusA8JPGraphicsPackage.zip   722.34KB   123 downloads
- gfxutil Link

Tutorial:

Read path for graphics device: ./gfxutil -f display
Insert path into x1700.plist
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)</key>

Read EDID (via Windows tool for example) and insert into x1700 as base64 encoded string:
<key>LVDS,EDID</key>
<data> .. </data>

Convert x1700.plist to hex string: ./gfxutil -i xml -o hex x1700.plist x1700.hex

Insert content from x1700.hex into com.apple.Boot.plist:
<key>device-properties</key>
<string> .. </string>

Backup ATISupport.kext, ATIRadeonX1000.kext, ATIFramebuffer.kext to Desktop:
(You actually remove the Extensions, not just copy. Also make sure that ATIinject/Natit is removed)

sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ATISupport.kext /Users/<username>/Desktop
sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ATIFramebuffer.kext /Users/<username>/Desktop
sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext /Users/<username>/Desktop

Copy ATIRadeonX1000.kext and ATINDRV.kext to /S/L/E:
sudo cp -R path/to/ATIRadeonX1000.kext /System/Library/Extensions
sudo cp -R path/to/ATINDRV.kext /System/Library/Extensions

Clean Kernel Extension Caches:
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/*

Restart System and boot with flags: -v -f

--

Please give it a try and tell if it works for you.

Greets,

Hey, guys!
Has anybody tried to get this card working using patched ATI1600Controller.kext (personality table) and injecting proper info into IOReg?
I mean this topic: http://www.insanelym...pic=249642&st=0

I came across with a weird problem: I can't get personality details from video bios.

Without patching personalities I always get black screen, but sleep seems to be working (I used teamviewer to access to laptop).

Asus F3Se, ATI Mobility Radeon x1700 (dev_id = 71DE).

Hi,
I have asus f3jp laptop (ati x1700, id=71d5)
I get full

resolution (1280x800) with QE/CI on Snow Leopard 10.6.3.


But,
I can't change resolution

(1024x768), and no QE/CI on Snow Leopard 10.6.8 !!



What should I do to get full resolution with

QE/CI on 10.6.8 ???

As it told here: http://www.beejblog....ow-leopard.html

You needed to change some offset of x1000 binary
v10.6.8 upgrade: offsets => 2E26F & B2A27 … to your device id (71d5)
And use evoenabler. Probably that gives you QE/CI.
