In Topic: Work in Progress: Google (Inventec) Cr-48

Sorry to be a bother but I really am confused on how to get the Laptop to boot from the USB key, it's not seeing it. :(

Use Disk Utility to create a DMG of your Mac OS X install disk (on a real Mac or other Hackintosh). Then partition a flash drive (>=8GB) with GPT and a single partition. Use the "restore" feature to restore the DMG to the partition on the flash drive. Then install Chameleon (either manually or just with one of the packages, such as #####). Then you should be able to copy the "Extra" folder, and the "boot" file. (Also a kernel if you need that.)

Yes, but if you install a smaller OS such as Ubuntu, would you lose the default Chrome OS and have to reflash to restore/recover it, or would you still be able to boot it? Or would you just have to install Chromium as another OS?

That would depend on how you install it, I guess. If you don't overwrite the bootloader, and don't mess with the locations of the Chrome OS's partitions (KERN, ROOT, and STATE partitions), it should still be there.

Worst case scenario: You flash back your old BIOS, and make a Chrome OS recovery flash drive.

I am actually using Meklort's Chameleon in the OP. It works just fine, except that there's still no QE/CI.

What's the over/under for getting the 3g working? I assume low, But it would be amazing to have a 3G equipped OS X to carry around.

EDIT: Great Job btw!

I honestly have no idea. I haven't tried. If anyone else wants to, be my guest.

Saw this post on Engadget. Good job man. The only thing I'm wondering at the moment is whether or not I can reflash the stock BIOS that came with the CR-48, say, if I don't want Windows anymore. Thanks for the BIOS flash guide!

You can certainly flash back. Just keep the write protection removed, and flash back your backup.bin or the Cr48-StockFW.bin that I've attached using flashrom -w.

In Topic: ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 now WORKS CI/QE !

24 November 2010 - 02:49 AM

I got the X2300 HD working at native resolution with QE/CI on a Gateway C-142XL on 10.6.5 with device ID 0x7211 with the following steps:

- Replaced 0x72101002 with 0x72111002 in ATIRadeonX1000.kext's Info.plist.
- Used 0xED to find and replace all instances of 1072 with 1172 in the Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX1000 binary(?). (And yeah, the fact that the first two and last two digits are flipped confused me at first.) It replaced four occurrences.

This fixed QE/CI, but the resolution was wrong, and I couldn't set it. Before this, I was just using RadeonHD.kext which got the correct resolution, but no QE/CI. I decided to try combining that with the newly modified ATIRadeonX1000.kext, and lo and behold, QE/CI at native resolution. The resolution is switchable via the prefpane, too.

I've attached the modified ATIRadeonX1000.kext and the RadeonHD.kext that I use. The RadeonHD.kext ought to work for any device id, if you modify your own ATIRadeonX1000.kext properly.
