    Hey matrix, im glad it works for you =) Greets, mushr00m

    In order to get rid of the mouse artifacts, you need an older ATINDRV.kext. I wrote a installation tutorial for the a8jp, didnt post it yet, but here is the graphics related part and a package of kernel extensions i use and the configuration files. Files: - Package AsusA8JPGraphicsPackage.zip - gfxutil Link Tutorial: Read path for graphics device: ./gfxutil -f display Insert path into x1700.plist <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)</key> Read EDID (via Windows tool for example) and insert into x1700 as base64 encoded string: <key>LVDS,EDID</key> <data> .. </data> Convert x1700.plist to hex string: ./gfxutil -i xml -o hex x1700.plist x1700.hex Insert content from x1700.hex into com.apple.Boot.plist: <key>device-properties</key> <string> .. </string> Backup ATISupport.kext, ATIRadeonX1000.kext, ATIFramebuffer.kext to Desktop: (You actually remove the Extensions, not just copy. Also make sure that ATIinject/Natit is removed) sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ATISupport.kext /Users/<username>/Desktop sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ATIFramebuffer.kext /Users/<username>/Desktop sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext /Users/<username>/Desktop Copy ATIRadeonX1000.kext and ATINDRV.kext to /S/L/E: sudo cp -R path/to/ATIRadeonX1000.kext /System/Library/Extensions sudo cp -R path/to/ATINDRV.kext /System/Library/Extensions Clean Kernel Extension Caches: sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/* Restart System and boot with flags: -v -f -- Please give it a try and tell if it works for you.

    Hi Matrix_ekb, do you have mouse artifacts showing up? You could try using gfx strings inside com.apple.Boot.plist Link ATIinject didnt work for me when installing 10.6.0 on a Asus A8JP / Radeon x1700. Greets, mushr00m EDIT: Also please make sure you got the correct EDID for your display.

    Take the one from this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&p=976870

    haris2887: try an old ATINDRV.kext, the newer ones gives you qe/ci but you have those glitches and mouse artifacts as far as i can remember. what os x version do you use? Greets, mushr00m

    Hi, does someone know what the ATI1600Controller.kext is good for? and why we dont need it? Greets, mushr00m

    floppah: i have the same problem (vertical stripes). cant say i really did a research on it, but imho its a race condition. if you are motivated, try out different ATINDRV.kext's and let me know if you have it fully working =) Greets, mushr00m.
  8. ATi Mobility Radeon x1700

    floppah: That is a good question. Pure Vanilla wouldnt work because of the Device ID, the PCI Device has on the hardware side. You could maybe emulate it (via DSDT?). Then you need a patched ATIRadeonX1000.kext, because this has *no* support for the X1700 (71D5). The patch replaces all 0xDE71 with 0xD571. This lets the kext handle the card as a 71DE card (X1600). This is in fact some kind of simulation Last you have the old ATINDRV.kext and the ATISupport.kext (new, in 10.6). I dont know what these do, but the Info.plist in ATISupport.kext is patched with the Device ID. I am using GFX Strings atm, so i dont have a ATIinject.kext. This works fine. One could do some research, but im happy it runs at least. It took me about 2 months to work it all out. Greets, mushr00m.

    floppa: Check the attached Info.plist and compare each setting with yours. It turned out that this setting is important for Asus A8JP Laptops: <key>@0,backlight-PWM-freq</key> <integer>210000</integer> righteye: Could you replace this Info.plist with the ones you collected (AsusA8JP ATIinject/info.plist) ? The one in the .zip file is an old one which didnt work for me. Greets, mushr00m. Info.plist.zip

    Hello floppah, check this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t126377.html Btw, i did just install 10.6 snow leopard retail on the a8jp, it runs fine so far. Going to write a guide for it soon =) Greets, mushr00m
  11. ATi Mobility Radeon x1700

    hi maclvr: i had the same problem, check my ATIinject Info.plist, the backlight-PWM-freq setting is important to get backlight, and for the drivers, i use dazza's ATINDRV, its the only one which works for me. The related posts are 1 or 2 sites past this one.

    Nope, still no luck I wonder what this can be.

    Hi righteye, there ya go =) acpi_package_mushr00m.tar.gz

    Yes, i tried it this afternoon, but no luck. When i'm in -v mode i see at the end: "All cpus halted - it's now safe to turn off your computer". Some ACPI issue?

    xess666: i got the same problem with shutdown, i have to hold the power button for like 3 seconds. and in 1 of 3 boots i have a black screen, not sure why this happens, but i think it has something todo in which order the kext's are loaded into the system. now i want to try out an efi string, so the information will be directly after booting in the ram. you said you tried efi strings, did you have any luck? EDIT: i attached my Info.plist i use with ATIinject, maybe it will help ya. EDIT2: attached also a ioreg dump from a macbook pro with an ati radeon x1600, where i got the pwm freq setting from, maybe there is another setting which will fix the issue. greets, mushr00m.
