  1. Hi seige232, Ok, we will wait for your news. Have you good something new to share with us?
  2. 4xxx includes RV620.. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/252061-mobility-radeon-hd-4650full-resolution-with-qe-ci-working-on-internal-lvds-screen/page-35?do=findComment&comment=1935942
  3. we only have one problem: pixels rendering when acceleration is enabled, some info that I read today about pix rendering, start reading on this page after the comment: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/190586-ati-hd-framebuffer-driver-105106-with-source-code/page-6?p=1305093&do=findComment&comment=1305093
  4. Lion with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3430 http://www.forocoches.com/foro//showthread.php?t=3003476 problems with resolution.. but installable config: iATKOS L2 (Lion 10.7.2) + iAtkos L1 ErickVela ver 1.3 try to test this kext on Lion: http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=971&page=2 ------------- I think the best way for testing QE / CI is Snow Leopard 10.6.2, 10.6.3 and 10.6.7, 10.6.8
  5. Hi, a few weeks ago I opened a topic about the acceleration of Mobility (generally) Radeon HD 3xxx cards and also on Radeon 4xxx cards for testing and make comparisons with the purpose of focusing the information about these cards in one post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/284638-qeci-ati-mobility-radeon-hd-31xx-32xx-34xx-42xx-radeon-hd-42xx-collection-2012/ waiting for your replies! thanks don't forget: persistence leads to success
  6. acceleration is there and can be activated, the problem is that we have to make minor modifications to correct rendering on screen, many users are using these cards, moreover the ATI Linux code gives us a good chance of success.. so one of the purposes here are to go testing and comparing with the Linux framebuffer.. the way followed Dong .. However you're using RV630 core, There are similarities but .. which framebuffer, kexts and bootloader are you using ? thanks for your comment
  7. 1 - This topic is mainly to collect and share the tests to get QE / CI on ATI Mobility Radeon HD 31xx 32xx 34xx 42xx cards & Radeon HD 42xx with the all information related. 2 - Also I added some user's tests I saw in the forums that allow these cards to get the DVI or VGA working. 3 - Get and change the screen resolution as discussed above. Although you can comment here, but this topic is not intended for this. The most important part of this topic, anyone with one of these cards can test the results we would serve users with different cards, in short if a user gets QE / CI in one of these cards will serve for all. Why? because they are using the same core Mobility Radeon HD 3100 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 3200 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 3410 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 3430 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 3450 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 3470 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 4200 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 4225 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 4250 - RV620 Mobility Radeon HD 4270 - RV620 Radeon HD 4200 Graphics (785G Chipset) - RV620 Radeon HD 4250 Graphics (880G Chipset) - RV620 Radeon HD 4290 Graphics (890GX Chipset) - RV620 FirePro 3D V3700 - RV620 FireMV 2260 - RV620 Other cards that I'm not sure if it would work: Radeon HD 3450 - RV620 LE Radeon HD 3470 - RV620 PRO __________________________________________ Ok, you have one of these cards and you know how to change the screen resolution so continue... How to obtain ATI card acceleration on OSX ? Support of ATI cards is made by 2 kexts : - A framebuffer, located in /System/Library/Extensions/ATINDRV.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ATY_Somefile.kext This one is responsible of 2D support, including resolution change, output signal handle, and refresh rate. - An acceleration driver located in /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonXXXX.kext This one brings hardware acceleration allowing use of QE (Quartz Exterme) and usually CI (Core Image) too, except on some older models which only support QE. * Credits to Krazubu * This text was copied from this link, so you can continue reading here: http://www.projectos...php?showtopic=9 * The same but with some extra information: http://osx86.fujiliv...ard-information * Here you can check and compare ATI cards, but the important is to determine which framebuffer need the core: http://en.wikipedia....rocessing_units RV620 use ATIRadeonX2000.kext so it's the reason because you can change the screen resolution using dong's kext. Here a collection and tests about How to obtain QE / CI: http://www.insanelym...uffer-solution/ In this topic some users explain how the ATI Mobility 4xxx works with QE/CI: http://www.insanelym...ci-testing-107/ ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ In the comment #9 of this topic: http://www.insanelym...0-on-os-x-1063/ you can see a user with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 that says : I have installed the RadeonHD kext, and resolution is much higher. But it seems I still do not have QE/CI enabled. How do I turn the feature on ? EDIT : After a few tweaks, it seems QE/CI is enabled but I still see no difference. bash-3.2# defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver GLCompositor { tileHeight = 256; tileWidth = 256; } ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ wmarsh says in this topic that is possible to obtain QE / CI on Mobility 34xx cards: http://www.insanelym...30#entry1661467 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Attached files in this topic: http://www.insanelym...or-dell-studio/ Framebuffers_for_ATI_Mobility_3xxx.rtf http://www.insanelym...attach_id=95572 How to quick patch Framebuffer's explained for obtain full QE CI working: http://www.insanelym...al-lvds-screen/ For Radeon HD 3XXX and prior choose Sharks, For Radeon HD 4XXX choose Birds, For Radeon HD 5XXX choose Monkeys. Some other important info and comments I collected: "Maybe with the edit of the framebuffer you could have QE/CI....but you have to set the right values, i found some framebuffers that you could edit but i don't know what are the offset in ATIFramebuffer executable....i attach you the official framebuffers to edit for QE/CI for ATI Mobility 3xxx, you have to follow mucha's guide but at the end you have to edit one of this framebuffers and you should have QE/CI for dmesg you have to install RadeonHD by dong,restart and then in terminal type dmesg > file.txt and you will have the values of you're mobility!!" "You have to follow mucha's guide and at the end download Sharks_FB.rtf(for mobility 3xxx) and Monkeys_FB.rtf(for mobility 5xxx) you need of this file because in it are the name of the framebuffer for your mobility(s) and you need xcode to find the offset of the framebuffer that you want to edit!" And look at the other Leopard1993 comments on the second page of the post: http://www.insanelym...io/page__st__20 "mucha's guide says that you have to connect another monitor HDMI/VGA/DVI to your laptop and than do dmesg in terminal" "If you have windows you can dump your bios with everest if you haven't windows use bcc9's tool" Another info: http://forum.voodoop...pic,1959.0.html I'm not sure about if this user get the acceleration.. her last comment in this post is confusing: http://www.insanelym...radeon-hd-3430/ ATI Moblity Radeon HD 3650 saying that QE/CI is ENABLED:http://www.insanelym...3/page__st__340 __________________________________________________________________________________________________ If other users has obtained QE CI with 4xxx cards (that aren't on my list), we can obtain it. So.. We are a lot of users, we can do lot of tests Some time ago was said that ATI Mobility Cards aren't supported on OSX.. day by day you can see new ATI Mobility cards running with QE / CI.. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Update 29/11/2012, Another CLEAR guide to get QE / CI in Snow Leopard: http://blog.tungdao.com/?tag=osx86 I don't understand why AIDA64 (ex-Everest) show this: (look at the device name ¡¿?) Video Adapter ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3430 Device Name RV610/RV620 I don't understand why aida64 is reporting that reference to the RV610 core, but this increases the probabilities of obtaining acceleration .. Also considering this: ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT & Mobility HD 2400 XT are based on RV610 and have QE CI in Leopard version see here: http://www.insanelym...-2400xt-0x94c1/ *old news (maybe useul) about 2400XT in Leopard: - http://netkas.freefl...opard-news.html - http://netkas.freefl...al-display.html - http://netkas.freefl...full-qe-ci.html - http://img240.images...8199/344kt4.jpg And in Snow Leopard too: http://www.insanelym...-106-with-qeci/ ..other useful info: http://osx86.fujilives.com/ ..other information that I have discovered today is that you can use ATIRadeonX2000.kext from SL in Lion.. but this is another issue I need testers and feedback, the idea is to post here the tests to find what works and what doesn't! don't forget: persistence leads to success macsony
  8. Sony vaio with Mobility HD

    Hello I'm from Spain, any spain user? please help me with graphics... I tried to test dong's RadeonHD kext with kext helper 7, because various user said that it works with her graphic card (notebook), but when I restart the computer to see the changes, the resolution options are the same (1024x768) Now i'm with snowosx SNOWOSX 3.6 10.6.2, Can you explain me what can I do to install the kext? I'm a beginner sorry. After I tried to boot with -s -x32 and I enter the commands in /System/Library/Extensions and this is what appears on screen: ----------------- RadeonhHD.kext has no Info.plist file cant contact kextd (containing anyway - unknown service name) Warning: Executable does not contain code for architecture: x86_x64 Can't load /System//Library/ no code for running kernel's architecture Failed to load RadeonHD.kext (libkern/kext) request arquitecture/executable not found. ----------------- Maybe this is caused by the mod-version of the SnowLeopard or maybe by the arquitecture? (I'm using Universal snowosx 3.6 ) but I have an an original dvd of Snow Leopard and some EFI cd's... Empire EFI, Nawcom EFI.. http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=446 And months ago I tried the original dvd with an efi for boot but.. do you think it's better? or the best way it's choose a good x86-modified kernel? now i'm downloadind iatkos s3 10.6.3 Please tell me a solution. lot of thanks (vaio ns31m - ati mobility hd 3430)
