    yes, I tryied, but kernel panic... If you look the IDs in info.plist of ATIX1000.kext, are similar to 0x71xx, like x2300.. But in info.plist of atix2000.kext are very different ( if I remember well, like 0x21xx ...) But I'm a noob in osx86 world.. If someone want to try ...

    The ati x2300 hardware is the same as ati x1450: http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonhd#head-cc896...3e209b3d80e137d http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2007/01/22/as...y_radeon_x2300/ It has the ATI M64 chipset, the same as x1450... IMHO, it never works with ATIX2000.kext

    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 ? Newentry79

    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> ...
  6. 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.insanelymac.com/index.php?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 ...
