@all

So, is there any news on getting X1700's working without black menus and full QE/CI after 10.5.2 & the Graphics Update?

I've been trying to modify the kexts included in the Graphics Update and can't seem to get QE/CI regardless of what I do. One of the biggest differences between before/after the Graphics Update is ATINDRV.kext is completely overhauled in the Graphics Update, there is no information in ATINDRV.kext/Contents/Info.plist -- there is now a plugins directory with different types of plugins.

ATINDRV.kext/Contents/Plugins Contains:
ATY_Alopias.kext
ATY_Caretta.kext
ATY_Hypoprion.kext
ATY_lago.kext
ATY_Lamna.kext
ATY_Sphyrna.kext
ATY_Wormy.kext


I'm not sure if we need new mods for ATINDRV.kext because I'm really not sure what was modified in the old ATINDRV.kext that was working before the Graphics Update (I was using the version posted by Finetuned in the thread in his signature -- ATiv5250_kexts.zip).

So, does anyone even know where to start modifying to try to get this working?

I found it interesting that in Tyrone Shoe's post here -- he says he has everything working 100% including sleep and an external monitor on his Lenovo T60p! I've tried PMing him and posting in that thread and have yet to receive a response. Tried asking around in irc.osx86.hu with no avail...

You find the new patched ATINDRV.kext in my first post of this topic ...Leopard Graphics Update
There is a ATi_Mobility_Radeon_x1700_10.5.2_LGU.zip file ... LGU = Leopard Graphics Update

Thanks Righteye. Believe me, that was the first thing that I tried. I already tried using your package, just your ATINDRV with my RadeonX1000.kext, and several other combinations, while they all work, they do not work in the sense of enabling QE/CI. If I just use the Kexts from the Graphics Update my system is completely usable. My intentions are to get QE/CI working 100%, and I have yet to find out how to do that with the Graphics Update Installed.

Thanks anyways :)

Righteye,
Here's a zip containing the KEXTS I used before 10.5.2, and the ones I've most recently tried modifying. The most recent files are pretty much the ATIinject.kext that I used from pre 10.5.2 (which I stole from Finetuned a while back), the ATINDRV you suggested trying to use, and the ATIRadeonX1000.kext from the Graphics Update where I modified the Info.plist and replaced 71DE with 71D5 (D571 -- my device ID).

I do not have my EDID on hand, going to install windows quickly on a temporary HDD to snag my EDID...will update once I get it. (I know the ATIinject.kext I've been using from Finetuned has worked fine with my system so far...)

I'm hosting my kext files on my own webserver, download them here or attached at the bottom.

Thanks again,
-P2

Considering that all was working before 10.5.2 update ... or Leopard Graphics Update ... i was using the existing EDID from your atiinject.kext
in order to use the new kexts i attached delete the atiinject.kext and do the Leopard Graphics Update again. After reboot if all is black try to boot in single user mode using -s
Then follow the on screen commands to mount the drive with write permission.
As root do:
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/atiradeonx1000.kext
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
reboot
Now you will have the no Qe/Ci and no res ... but is ok
An advice before: do not replace the ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin, ATIRadeonX1000GLDriver.bundle or ATIRadeonX1000VADriver.bundle. Should be the originals after the update.
Now copy this kexts in the /System/Library/Extensions/
chown and chmod then repair permissions and reboot. You should have res, Qe/Ci enabled.

Cheers

@righteye

Thanks a lot for the KEXTS, but they didn't help.
Luckily, the process of installing your kexts made me realize my mistake... After I booted the system after reinstalling the Leopard Graphics Update I checked System Profiler and it said "No Kext Loaded" for my Graphics Card, which is expected. Then, I realized that this entire time i've been using the wrong device ID. The device ID listed in System Profiler was 71D4, while I've been injecting 71D5 in all my kexts. I confirmed this by backing up a couple pages in this thread and reading gneely74's post...

Hi all,

I have a Lenovo T60p with a 5250 (71d4). I am running 10.4.10 and have followed the posts in the forum (Thanks finetuned and thehuan!) to get CI/QE. But so far all I have achieved is the ability to change my res to 1680x1050. No CI or QE. Could someone possibly post their kexts for a T60p with 71d4 card?

Thanks in advance!

I feel like a moron for doing this... unbelievable.
Well, I'll be sure to update any of the other threads as well as anyone else who has been having issued with their FireGL v5250 on Leopard after the Graphics Update -- because my system is finally working with QE/CI after the LGU!!

Thanks for inadvertently helping me notice this,
-P2

P.S. -- I'm uploading the working 10.5.2 Post LGU Kexts for ATi FireGL v5250 (71D4) here && attaching to this post.

whoever posted the zip files and saying they work with leopard which included IONDRVSupport and IOPCIFamily kexts
this totally messed my system, even backing up the kexts and replacing them with original didnt work

caused a kernel panic, both 10.5.0 and 10.5.2 versions

have to redo everything now, righteye do you have stable drivers, my card can only do 1280x800, mine is X1700 not the other type.

Hi P2iM-0,

So did you get your 71D4 working with the 10.5.2 LGU? I have not yet done the LGU, but if your kexts worked with 71d4 card, I will definitely give it a shot.

Thanks,

gneely74,
Yes, it's working fine as we speak. When I run Software Update it says I still need to install the Graphics Update, but thats probably just because it detects that the version of ATINDRV.kext is not the same as the LGU. Otherwise, all other kexts are LGU kexts, the only one thats modified is ATIRadeonX1000.kext, and I'm using ATIinject.kext to get my resolution to 1680x1050. Try the kexts I posted above, just be sure to change your EDID in ATIinject.kext and you should be good to go.
Do the traditional 'chown, chmod', rm -rf Extensions.mkext, & 'diskutil repairPermissions /' on the kexts and you should be all set. Righteye helped me out with this, it just took me to realize I've been using the wrong damn device ID for a couple weeks now.

-P2

EDIT 03/15/08 -- I've just reinstalled OS X again just to clean up some of the unnecessary mess I left after making so many changes during testing. I am now running Kalyway 10.5.1 -> Kaly 10.5.2 Combo Updater -> Kaly 10.5.2 Vanilla Kernel -> Leopard Graphics Update -- I have full QE/CI & External Display (with QE/CI) with ONLY modifying my ATIRadeonX1000.kext (Info.plist, ATIRadeonX1000 binary file) and ATIinject.kext (EDID, device/vendor ID's). There was no need to modify ATINDRV.kext that was installed by default with the LGU. I've also noticed that some animations exist now, and my system has yet to boot to a black screen. This is a huge improvement for me.

Yes on my laptop: Asus G2P the drivers are working fine after the 10.5.2 update and after the Leopard Graphics Update. The only kexts i patched for graphics are the Atiinject using my EDID, ATINDRV and ATIRadeonx1000 that is also hex-edited. Possible that the kernel panic is from some apple kext that you should remove ... Send me more info about your device and the kernel panic and i'll try to help you.Cheers

Here you go ... Hope you know how to chmod and chown the kexts, remove the extensions.mkext then repair permissions. This kexts should work for you.Cheers

You have Leo 10.5.2 with the LGU ? And try not using kext helper ... Did you use all the kexts from the archive? Do you have an external monitor; just to se if all is staring correct? Might be a problem with the EDID ... Try booting with -v to see if there is some errors on loading the kexts and give me the output.

Hi, I have a F3JP and also had the problem exactly similar to fallouttt's when using kext helper.

I'm a windows guy and know nothing about installing kext. Can you make the installer for the kext, it must help alot.

There is a custom installer i put in mi first post (at the bottom) ... is for Leopard 10.5.2 with the Leopard Graphics Update made ... if that doesn't help ... might be the EDID ... so you have to give it to me ... But for now just go to mi first post and get the installer.

Hi,

I just wanted to thank righteye and P2iM-0. Thanks to you (and numerous others on these boards) I now have QE/CI working on my Thinkpad T60p (2007-CTO, 14" (I think) display)! I really wondered whether I'd ever get it working, but in the end it was P2iM-0's kexts (with my EDID substituted in ATIinject, since I have a smaller screen) that did the job!

Thanks again guys, you rock! ;)

If anyone else has the same laptop, I'll try to help if I can. Once I get my notes cleaned up, I'll post them on the forum.

Yes ... you have to replace the kexts with the ones from previous posts ... or to make the Leopard Graphics Update and use the ATINDRV.kext and ATiRadeonx1000.kext from my installer and the ATiinject.kext but edititng the EDID with the one from your device.

The kexts i patched are only for those that have 10.5.2 and Leopard Graphics Update!

If you can't get it work send me the device id and the EDID and i'll try to make an installer for you.

Cheers
