ATI 4650 Mobility on Sony FW450J/B -- Motmot or Shrike

23 September 2011 - 11:29 AM

Hi guys,

I installed Lion 10.7 GM and then downloaded and installed the combo update 10.7.1... I then installed the latest ATY_Init from Netkas which uses the Motmot framebuffer. This is the result after doing this:

LVDS ==> Black screen
HDMI ==> Fully Working with QE/CI
VGA ==> Black screen

I understand that I need to modify (patch) ATY_Init to Shrike in order to get my internal laptop screen (LVDS) to work. However, I don't understand how come HDMI is working using Motmot? From what I know, Motmot is supposed to run the radeon 4800 series. Can someone tell me why this is happening and how I can use the connector info values from Motmot to patch Shrike and get ATY_init to display on LVDS?

Best Regards

I'm considering to buy this card: Galaxy Geforce GT 520 2GB DDR3 PCIe 2.0

Will this card work under SL or Lion?

Thanks in advance

ATI 4650 Mobility on Sony FW450J/B -- almost there?

19 August 2011 - 12:16 AM

Hi guys,

I installed Lion 10.7 GM and then downloaded and installed the combo update 10.7.1

I then installed the latest ATY_Init from Netkas.

When the laptop boots, I get a black screen on my laptop screen ( it's not turned off, it's just black) . However, when I connect HDMI cable to the TV the desktop comes up and I can see that QE/CI are both enabled.

I understand that I need to modify (patch) ATY_Init in order to get my internal laptop screen (LVDS) to work.

Can someone tell me what I need to do to get this done?

Best

ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 on Sony FW

27 July 2011 - 06:07 PM

Hello everyone,

I have a Sony FW 450J with ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 ( dev id 9480)

I used to visit this site two or three times a day two years ago hoping for a solution for my graphics card. However, there was no hope for a solution then.

Now I can see that several people here were able to make it work perfect. The problem is that there is so much advanced jargon and steps in the tutorials that makes a newbie like me get lost so quickly. For example, I have no idea what these things are:

Kext
ATY_init
DSDT
Shrike Personality
S/L/E
LVDS
GraphicsEnabler=YES
com.apple.boot.plist
framebuffer
UseATIRom
Extra


So I started this post hoping for some assistance to help me (and the million others like me) get this card to work with full resolution (1600x900) and enable QE/CI.

I already installed Snow leopard using a retail copy of Snow Leopard (10.6.0) and the ##### method from here: http://tonymacx86.bl...ac-os-x-on.html

However I couldn't get the installer to boot without these commands: GraphicsEnabler=No -x

After I finidhed the install I rebooted using ##### and I can only boot using the same commands but I see this only allows me to work under safe mode which does not allow me to mount any USB drive!!

Now can someone help me get through from here?

Thanks a billion in advance.

I booted the system in safe mode as above and removed all Kexts that start with ATI in System/Library/Extensions. Now I'm able to boot with only command (GraphicsEnabler=No) and I'm also working in Normal mode and can mount USB and CD roms, etc...

Still need a lot of help.

After reading a little I now know a couple of things:

1) the term /S/L/E is short for the path to folder /System/Library/Extensions

2) In order to boot in 64bit mode you need to use the command arch=x86_x64 in startup

At the moment I'm trying the method and kexts available here: http://www.kexts.com...hrike_9480.html
