0x71c5 ATIx1600 mobility again...

15 October 2008 - 11:43 PM

Hi Guys,

Im trying around nearly every possible solutions using hex-editor, plist editor and so on...
Its really a hassle. I really read ALL and also tried them in almost every variation, but i still don't manage to enable QE/CI

Does maybe one of you has got a hint how to get it working?

I'm using a HP NX9420 with an ATI x1600 mobility (0x71c5), PCIe, 256mb in conjunction with JAS 10.5.4 and the voodo XNU 9.4 kernel.

I managed to get the full resolution of 1680x1050 so far, but neither res change, QE or CI is working properly.
If I hex edit the ATIRadeonX1000.kext, and several Info.plists the closest thing I get is a blue screen with a mouse pointer on it (if it starts at all)

Thats also what I get, when I using the Empty Skull, or koslovsky kexts...

Could anyone have a look to my kexts?

and which ones are really needed to get it running? There are many different options mentioned here...

Thanks in advance,


The NX9420 Thread

Hi All,

I'm struggling a while with my HP NX9420 and want to share my findings with you.
The most drivers I found here in this forum, thanks a lot to all!!!
Maybe here are some other NX9420 users around who can discuss...

1st of all, I'm using a NX9420 with C2D 2,17Ghz, 3GB Ram, 1680x1050 Display in conjunction with JaS 10.5.4

Following things are working/working not:

- C2D Unfortunatly still only on one Core...

- Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet working nearly perfect. Just have to insert my macadress manually with
"ifconfig en0 ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" (or better a shellscript does that for me)

- Bluetooth working OOTB

- Wlan not working

- PC-Card TI - working

- Firewire - working OOTB

- Graphics ATI X1600 - working on 1680x1050 but without QE/CI :-/

- Sound - working (without input/output)
