  2. Ati Radeon HD 5650 on Lion 10.7 with CI/QE

    You can get mine here. This is extracted from Sony VAIO EB2 series running on ATI 5650M. Not sure if it is safe to use if your manufacturer is different. Link --> http://www.mediafire.com/?nz567awg2576wl7 I would be very lucky to hear from you that you've got 1080p screen on your lappie.

    Hi Bogdantiku, Would you mind zipping your extra folder and sharing it for me?
  4. Mobility Radeon HD 5650 QE/CI WORK! (26/2 Update!)

    I am able to get to the screen with GraphicsEnabler=No 100% times with FULL Resolution 1920x1080 but with No QE/CI but the moment I change it to Yes I get sometimes blank display with little backlight, sometimes little blurred display, sometimes overlapped display and sometimes mindblowing fully working display.. Framebuffer can be Hoolock or Eulemur doesn't make any difference. I am using all vanila kexts with vanila boot file from Chimera 1.9. Using the boot file from famous r875 makes no difference either. EDID is extracted using Win7 and put in place of overrides directory properly. I am able to see all supported resolutions and change them when GE is set to Yes. With GE=No only one resolution appears and that is final. I am thinking of changing ATI5000Controller.kext to try and change the connector info but I am not able to get the senseid using radeon bios decode so the possible permutations are very huge to use trial and error method. I just need right directions or hint to proceed from here.. Please help I am very close to get a nearly working hackintosh laptop
  5. ATI HD5650 on Sony FullHD with QE/CI but unstable

    I am facing the exactly similar issue over last few months. The only way I can get the guaranteed Full HD display is by using GraphicsEnabler=No and Graphics Mode=1920x1080x32 in the boot plit. This obviously doesnot give me QE/CI. The reason the blurred screen is coming is because for some reason the LVDS is identified as CRT. (source - IORegistryExplorer). We need to patch either Hoolock or Eulemur personality to include connectors for LVDS(7), HDMI(11) and VGA(1). The issue that I have is I am not able to get the VBIOS results properly as well. I mean I cant get senseid for LVDS so it is bit diifficult for me to patch the personalities. Have you extracted your Video BIOS ROM? You can run the VBIOS tool by Dong to extract it. Then you should use radeon_bios_decode to generate the text with connector details. Post them here and let's take it forward together. Meanwhile can you please post your complete config as well? Mine is VPCEB2C5E with Corei5 520m, 5650m, 1080p, 4 GB RAM and 500 GB HDD
  6. Ati Radeon HD 5650 on Lion 10.7 with CI/QE

    Could anyone get this working with FULL HD (1920x1080) screen? Please let me know the framebuffer used in that case? I've had a partial luck.. it works sometimes but not always.. let's say once in 10 reboots.. all other times I could just see scrambled display.. with GraphicsEnabler=No it works always but obviously without QE/CI
  7. Three Cheers... Hats off to TSEUG for making the guide given on Page 1. I can imagine what level of expertise is needed to make that one... I could upgrade to LION GM on my Sony VAIO only because of this guide.. Many Thanks !!!
  8. Trackpad not working

    I am having the same issue.. My laptop is Sony VAIO EB Series with ATI5650 graphics card and 15" 1080p real estate. Everything else including QE/CI, USB, Sound, Bluetooth, Sleep, Battery Meter.. is working but the ALPS trackpad.. Any pointers would be of immense help.. I have tried most of the VoodooPS2Controllers available on net..
