Hi, pjmiller435,

Thanks for your work on this driver, i've installed it on a Lenovo n500 running iAtkos v7. I have not seen any changes, there's no new connection in the network syspref icon, no airport card either. If you can tell me where i can get details you need, please do!

Thanks again,

haha, good to see the growing thing worked.

Yes, it was a great idea! Thank you!
And all of you who worked on the resolution fix, thanks everyone!

try this:

1- Install chameleon 1 bootloader.
http://www.insanelym.../tag/installer/ (download from here or any other place else)

2-Download File Buddy 9 and find file boot on the root of your OSX HD install. Replace with this boot file attached on my post. (you have to use File buddy because its an invisible file)

3- Add this line to your com.apple.Boot.plist after <key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>"Graphics Mode"="1600×1200×32"</string>

command: sudo pico /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

how its mine:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
	<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs$
	<plist version="1.0">
			<key>Kernel Flags</key>
			<string>"Graphics Mode"="1600×1200×32"</string>

I have added 1600x1200x32 and i got my native (1280x800x32) so try your native there instead of 1600x1200x32)

reboot and you should get your native.
good luck :)

Boot file credits is from vaio-p users.

I now use coldequation patch4500.bash because its better and i can change resolution everytime i want. But at least with this method you can get more than the annoying: 1024 x 768

Thanks for the instructions. Right now, i just got my mouse finnaly appear by growing it, it's not like i haven't tried this before, but now i was more brave and went for really big, and after approx half of the slider my mouse appeared. It's big as hell, but it is there:D When the cursor should change to hand or something else it disappeares again, but hey, its now usable.

I'm gonna try your method anyway tomorrow if there's some hope of getting software mouse rendering. I'm using chameleon 2 bootloader (the nice one with the GUI), is it suitable too or i should revert to 1.0?

np. I think this is the cause :P but at the same time, it would be a blessing to know that you can load AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext. For me the boot stops at a blue screen when I have that kext installed, because my addressing seems wrong. We need coldequation to have a look at this too.. It's just too good to be true :P

I can't load it either, i ran the bash jut now with no selectors (simply dragged into terminal after sudo su), it created both kexts (one with FB at the end and one without), but i could not boot, just blue screen like you, then picture noise. After reboot in safe mode i deleted the one without the FB, then i could boot normally, even had native res. just no cursor. i'm gonna try now growing the cursor too.

are you having trouble with getting the kext to load? i was having the same issue, so i deleted all of the intelapplex***** kexts and started off fresh and loaded 2a42appleintelgmax4500 see attached picture 2.jpg

Not really, no. I can run the script without any options, or with -vrf, -rf, -r, i can't remember exatly, but i tried all variations, and even the non forced ones worked fine (at least the script said everything is ok) After reboot i had no messages saying anything about kext errors (i had some with the audio driver, but it was fixed after repairing permissions with osx86tools).
Now that you showed us that corrupted cursor, i remembered that the very first time i ran the script, i could not get the system to boot up, i saw only noise(like on old tvs), and when booting into safe mode, i saw the corruption like yours instead of the mouse. I guess i just had a wrong devid passed with the f option, since i can run the script now any way i like, i alwasy have native res. after reboot, without any kext loading errors, Of course with no mouse pointer.

I was trying to find something about running the mouse in software mode for a while now, with no success.
