  1. I tried with these kernel extensions on my Studio 1555, but they don't get me anywhere. I can get native resolution, however no QE/CI. Could someone give me any suggestions on how to enable this? I'm at my wits end here. Regards, I forgot to include the other ATI Framebuffer kexts. Silly me. Anyone got a fix for the OpenGL problem?
  2. Hello, I'm back. Here's the stuff extracted from the VBIOS rom. Any help regarding this would be welcomed. (Unfortunately I can't download Xcode due to bandwidth reasons, any lighterweight alternatives?) ATOM BIOS Rom: SubsystemVendorID: 0x1028 SubsystemID: 0x02be IOBaseAddress: 0x2000 Filename: BR32787.001 BIOS Bootup Message: BR32787-001 M92 GDDR3 64bit 500e/800m PCI ID: 1002:9553 Connector at index 0 Type [@offset 45712]: VGA (1) Encoder [@offset 45716]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (0x15) i2cid [@offset 45774]: 0x95, OSX senseid: 0x6 Connector at index 1 Type [@offset 45722]: HDMI-A (11) Encoder [@offset 45726]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY (0x1e) i2cid [@offset 45797]: 0x91, OSX senseid: 0x2 Connector at index 2 Type [@offset 45732]: LVDS (7) Encoder [@offset 45736]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY2 (0x21) i2cid [@offset 45824]: 0x90, OSX senseid: 0x1 Edit: Err, I forgot to say what the problem was. How confusing of me. Basically the screen is undetected, where undetected means I can change the resolution, but there's no QE/CI. Woo!
  3. How do you retrieve the vBIOS ROM?
  4. You may find it here.
  5. Did you add the IDT kext?
  6. I have a Studio 1555 with the same graphics card as you, and all the kexts on this topic allow me to change the resolution, however I haven't got QE/CI enabled. I'll do some tinkering, see if I can get it working. (Just a heads up, by the way)
  7. I feel stupid for asking this, but I take this is on Snow Leopard, right?

    You dear sir, are an angel. Thank you!

    What, must all specs be confined to signatures? Here's what I have: Intel Core2 Duo CPU T6500 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 4GB Ram 320GB HDD (and that's needed how?) Also, should I consider moving to Snow Leopard?

    (By the way, my OS is 10.5.8) There's no ATIRadeonX2000 kext, which I presume is what you're on about. I tried to experiment with that, but ended up with a black screen, unsurprisingly (so I deleted it about a week ago). According to the System Profiler, RadeonHD is indeed loaded, and even when booting in -x32, the resolution won't change. Boo hoo. :< Also, there's no GraphicsEnabler in my com.apple.Boot.plist, to make sure, here's my plist: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>None</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> <key>device-properties</key> <string><% Long hex string here %></string> </dict>

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea what you are on about. I initially used that topic to try to change the resolution, but to no avail. And yes, I am using the 18th December kext.

    I'm sorry to ask this question, but despite my desperate attempts to get the resolution changed, I fail. Obviously, I've got the Mobility HD4570 (Studio 1555), but anything 'hackintosh' wise, I'm pretty much stuck. I tried Tohych's kext (or should I call that dong?), but I can't get native resolution. Could someone please explain to me in English - or at least, UNIX speak? Thank you, and I'd appreciate any help.
