Hi all,
my girlfriend has a laptop Sony Vaio VGN-CR11Z with a Ati Mobility Radeon X2300 (Device ID: 0x718a); after the last graphic update, following this guide http://forum.insanel...showtopic=69345 (thank to MacMan2007) and now I've CI and QE enabled ;)

Those are my steps:

- installed Iatkos 1.0r2
- updated with 10.5.2 (thanks to netkas.org's instructions)
- graphic update (from Software Update).
- edit /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist
- replace the existing 0x71871002 with 0x718A1002
- with the program 0xED edit file /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX1000
- Find: 8771 | Replace: 8A71 | Search Type: Hex, then hit Replace All. (should replace 2 incidences)
- Reboot with flag -f

and now IT WORKS!!!!!!! (For a more detailed instructions follow MacMan2007 guide ...)

However, you cannot change resolution from System Preferences,

but you must add those lines to your /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

...
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>"1280x800x32"</string>
...

I've also some mouse tearing, but now I can watch my dvd ... :D

Hi newentry79,

I have an Asus A8JR laptop with Ati Mobility Radeon X2300 (Device ID: 0x718a) as well, but my OS was 10.5.

I Updated my OS to 10.5.2 and then did a graphic update (48mb download).

I edited the file /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist
and replaced the existing 0x71871002 with 0x718A1002

Downloaded 0xED and edited the file /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX1000 replaced all entries from 8771 to 8A71

Edited file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

and added this lines:
...
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>"1280x800x32"</string>
...

But my system still boot in 1024x768x32 resolution. I double checked all files above to make sure they were saved, but I can't get 1280x800x32 resolution. Interesting is that after I updated my OS to 10.5.2 and did graphics update i can play DVD now, but would be much nicer to have bigger resolution. Do have any idea what is wrong? Tks

Did you ever try to type "Graphics Mode"="1280x800x32" at the Darwin bootloader?

Do you have in /System/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist, the following lines ???

...
<key>Boot Graphics</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1280x800x32</string>
...

Hi newentry79,

Before I only had this entry:

<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1280x800x32</string>

but i added like you said:

...
<key>Boot Graphics</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1280x800x32</string>
...

And still the same, even if I try to type "Graphics Mode"="1280x800x32" at the Darwin bootloader

Have a look my System Profiler:



Tks

Here i made a kext for you, there are 2 methods to install it:
1) Install it with Kext Helper
2) Open the console, type this and reboot!

#sudo -s
#rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/ATIX1000.kext
#cp -R /path/to/your/kext/ATIX1000.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ATIX1000.kext
#rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.mkext


REMEMBER THAT THIS IS ONLY FOR QE/CI ENABLED, AND IT FUNCTION WITH Kalyway, Zephyroth OR iATKOS
, it has some graphics glitches and it have to be perfect, but it's best than software mode :)
Personally i didn't get the 1280x800 resolution after adding strings to com.apple.Boot.plist, so YOU WILL GET ONLY AN 1024x768!

Enjoy and feel free to help if you can!
Download it!

Thanks to newentry79 for the method :o

Hi All,

With newentry79 help I've tried everything to get bigger resolution than 1024x768, but with no success.

Does anyone got 1280x800 resolution or only newentry79?

tks,

brzdidi

Hi GTOnizuka,
did you try this Natit.kext ?? Because inside Info.plist I don' t find any reference to x2300 or to our id 718a ... Does it work in your pc ? Can you change resolution now ?

It's normal because it's for igyo's problem, for radeon's HD. Our's not HD, but a normaly X-series :)
But i haven't tryed with any natit because i supposed that it must have been supported passively, not with natit the X2300 :) That's all.

i have the Asus A8Jr and i was running iATKOS v1.0i together with Vista Home Premium. When installed it worked fine, no audio and wireless but that are common problems. Also, the upgrade to 10.5.2 with the Kalyway ComboUpdate, and worked fine too.
But then, with the kext file installer i installed the .kext, and restarted. It loads normally, with the grey screen with the apple, and then it stoppes. The mouse doesn't move, the loader (tiny little circle that spins) stops, and it won't go any further.

Soo, this is gonna be the second time i have to re-install, or can i repair this in a safe-mode or something???

There are not so many ppl with a x2300.. ;)

Hi sinnsyk,

GTOnizuka wrote a message to download this Natit.kext and help igyo that has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600, but he forgot to mention that this file is not for our card (X2300).

I believe you can go in safe mode with write permission and then replace these replaced files with the original you had:

Type -s in the boot menu

and to get write permissions type fsck -fy

I have a SONY CR23/B with ATI Mobile X2300, I'm try to do open CI/QE. UP to 1280x800 it's working. very happy!
But display color is not good & mouse tearing.
I think is display card X2300 mabey not full worked.
we need real driver for ATI X2300, not X1000--->X2300!

Natit is for igyo, mine kext is for X2300. ;)

Try waiting some minutes before restart, into mine takes about 5 min to boot up with QE/CI. And if not, try booting with -v and tell us last 3 messagges ;)

I think that patching X2000 kext is going to resolve the problem, but for now i'm busy with school, when i'll be free i'll retry patching some kext and get 1280x800 working with all X2300 models ;)

At me the image is transferred automatically to the external monitor as though does not see the internal LCD panel: (Can you know as to change a priority of displays. To the main things to put internal.

The ati x2300 hardware is the same as ati x1450:

http://wiki.x.org/wi...3e209b3d80e137d

http://www.reghardwa...y_radeon_x2300/

It has the ATI M64 chipset, the same as x1450... IMHO, it never works with ATIX2000.kext ;)
