  2. QE/CI/Rotation on AppleTV OSX Install!

    Someone should try MacVidiaEFI in combination with the Laptop Kext from Macvidia to see if this will activate the DVI/HDMI screen. Since this is a laptop chipset the display may just be inactive. Almost identical to when you hold play in ATV os and the graphics shut off but the device stays running. It still outputs the resolution to the tv/monitor it's just blacked out. Maybe it sends an acpi lid closed message to the graphics driver.
  3. SUCCESS! Dual Booting ATV/OSX with Internal Drive

    He hadn't copied the correct boot.efi file into the OSX install on the media partition. From ATV SSH ls -al /mnt/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 298800 Apr 6 14:07 /mnt/Sysetm/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi Check that your size is also 298800. Copy it from the OSBoot partition. Also From ATV SSH sudo cp /Volumes/OSBoot/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi /mnt/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi
  4. QE/CI/Rotation on AppleTV OSX Install!

    -=Further Information=- HDMI/DVI Outputs a black screen. However it does output a resolution because the tv/lcd monitors I have tested on change display modes appropriately. Also after inactivity the monitor goes to sleep, and then moving the mouse changes the monitors display mode again. Something is just preventing the display from showing the OS. Component Output works but will only output 4:3 Interlaced NTSC/PAL resolutions. No success with SwitchResX yet. Once the resolution is applied it will also change the resolution on all other boots to any partition including atvos. The best case is to boot to atvos and set the appropriate resolution and then bless to the OSX install. Using the plugins/bundles from the ATVOS /System/Library/Extensions/ folder disables QE/CI/Rotation so it seems 10.4.9 kexts are working best. 10.4.8 kexts provide close to the same results. The difference between the 4.8/4.9 kexts is this.... 4.9= DVI/HDMI output to an HDTV shows up properly as a television and allows setting overscan/HD resolutions 4.8= DVI/HDMI output to an HDTV shows up as a normal digital panel and doesn't allow overscan/Has less resolutions. Component didn't seem to be any different between 4.8/4.9 It shows up as a Television no matter what is connected to it. Removing Natit from the equation provides the same results except the Card is detected properly(even without natit) and QE/CI/Rotation are still enabled. Adding MacVidiaEFI kext shows similar results as Natit. Doesn't seem to be any better/worse through all of the equations. Prasys thinks the black screen is caused by a lack of a proper framebuffer driver. This may be the case if Component doesn't use the framebuffer because the component output works. Some of the problems in this thread seem to be similar http://www.macvidia.com/index.php?option=c...;topic=1031.390 Being as this is a laptop chipset alot of the issues show a strong similarity.
  5. QE/CI/Rotation on AppleTV OSX Install!

    http://www.putfile.com/pic.php?img=5171373 Looks like {censored} on putfile so if you want the full image http://www.mediafire.com/?bezyfcjtidl or see attached This is done using 10.4.8 Jas Install DVD to Media Partition of ATV using Semthex's 10.4.8 ATV kernel Then Adding the following Kexts/Bundles/Plugins from a 10.4.9 install NVDANV10Hal.kext NVDANV20Hal.kext NVDANV30Hal.kext NVDANV40Hal.kext NVDAResman.kext GeForce.kext GeForce2MXGLDriver.bundle GeForce3GLDriver.bundle GeForceFXGLDriver.bundle GeForceGA.plugin GeForceVADriver.bundle and a custom version of Natit found below.... http://www.mediafire.com/?7dmljmiwoyz And also Editing the NVDAResman.kext/Contents/Info.plist IOPCIMatch line to be <string>0x01D710DE</string> This boots up and QE/CI/Rotation all report fine. As well as all available resolutions in Resman. To do this you need an understanding of Kexts/Permissions....Make sure all of the Contents/MacOS/xyz files in the above kexts are +x My screenshot is taken from VNC because my tv will not display any of the resolutions properly. Others please try this to see if your tv works. Credit Goes to Diab0lik for supplying this custom version of Natit. He will be making revisions to this version of Natit as well to find out if we can make further progress. arodd/heavymetaler
  6. SUCCESS! Dual Booting ATV/OSX with Internal Drive

  7. I've got OSX dual booting by installing OSX to the media partition and it works great. It doesn't interfere with ATV OS I essentially Installed a fresh copy of osx to a 3.5" hard-drive(hackint0sh). Then popped in the ATV drive to my pc along with the fresh install. Then used Disk Utility to recover the osx partition from the 3.5" to the Media partition making sure to not reformat/erase partition. It will coexist with the Media/Scratch folders on the 4th partition. Setup the usual mach_kernel/boot.efi mod using semthex's kernel and the guide from appletvhacks.net. Then Bless with bless --folder=/mnt/System/Library/CoreServices --file=/mnt/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi --setBoot --nextonly This will tell it to use the boot.efi file from the media partition and boot osx, but only on the next reboot.... I wrote a script that does the bless command and then reboots automatically Now all we need is someone to write a plugin to call a script to bless and reboot so we can do it from the atv menu and not have to use ssh. To get back to ATV OS you would just need to reboot. Another Interesting thing I found was my AppleTV has a 1.5ghz i'm going to run some xbenches to confirm that it's actually performing at this.

  8. Apple TV - What we know so far.

    Can't wait to get Apache and torrentflux working
  9. Firefox Performance

    i read somewhere that the firefox ppc binary runs through rosetta on the dev machines faster then it runs natively on a g5 or something to those lines.
  10. Possible Dev DVD Being Leaked Soon

    Ok so people are saying it will install on mac or pc(the dvd that is). So what if we installed it on a mac and made a hard-disk image of that and then moved all of those files over to the darwin 8.1 x86 setup, then we should have all of the files. And then if we work on the mach_override to take out tpm we should be set.
