  1. Thanks for the info in this thread guys, that Graphics Mode key was the solution, as my XFX 5850 + U2711 would boot to black.

    Dual Monitor Flicker - Radeon 5850

    I'm having the same issue and it's usually resolved by unplugging/replugging my DVI connectors. Not very practical but for the time being, will have to do :/
  3. Thanks for your input bcc9. Unfortunately I'm still not getting it to work. I've tried the hotplug, too. I just spent this morning playing with personality edits (that sounds so psychological... ) but nothing worked and I got blank boot screens at the beginning. I know the DP works because I booted W7 and Ubuntu and it works, and during boot, I see Chameleon's boot screen on the HDTV (DP connector). I booted again in Ubuntu with the radeon.modeset=0 setting, with all three monitors connected (1 DVI, 1DVI->VGA, and 1DP). Here's the log file but I'm having a hard time deciphering it all. Original Uakari 00 04 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 71 00 00 12 04 04 01 04 00 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 01 12 01 03 00 02 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 00 00 06 05 00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 71 00 00 22 05 05 04 Try one: -- this one worked, but mouse was "choppy" as hell, and DP didn't work 00 04 00 00 04 06 00 00 00 71 00 00 12 04 04 01 04 00 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 01 12 01 03 00 02 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 00 00 06 05 00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 71 00 00 22 05 05 04 Try two: this one just didn't boot. - Tried 0, 1, 2, 4 for HotplugIDs. 00 04 00 00 04 06 00 00 00 71 00 00 02 04 00 01 00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 71 00 00 22 05 01 04 04 00 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 01 12 02 03 04 00 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 00 00 03 05 I'm wondering what the 00 02 means on the third line of the Original and Try One, because as far as I can tell, this one should be DVI, no? Since I have two DVI ports, a DP, and HDMI ports... Finally, here's IOReg right now, after I returned to the 1.6.32 Early 2011 MacBook Pro kexts: EDIT: actually it seems the choppiness only happens when the DP port is plugged in, regardless of Personality edits...

  4. Thanks bcc9. I just want to make sure that, to edit any of the connector stuff using 10.6.7 MBP kexts, it's the ATI5000Controller binary and not the ATIFramebuffer, right? And that I have to do the edits at the 32bit and 64bit addresses. Also, what do you mean by hotplug?

    Asus EAH 5850 3 ports working

    Hey movingimage, I had the same problem when using the Lion kexts and not sure why, had to return to the 1.6.32 kexts (MacBookPro 10.6.7 ones).

    Asus EAH 5850 3 ports working

    Sorry, I'm a bit confused: If the personalities (and connector table) are in ATI5000Controller, why are we patching ATIFramebuffer? My ATIFramebuffer has nothing about personalities... Is it normal that yours does? Right now I have Chameleon RC5, Kabyl's latest boot, patched DSDT, and my boot.plist looks fine, Uakari loaded. I'm so close! But editing the ATI5000Controller binary doesn't work for me... If possible, can you upload your ATI kexts (I can't find 1.6.26...) Thanks!

    Which ATI kexts are you using? I'm using the 1.6.32 from MB 3.4 – and my Uakari personality is in ATI5000Controller.kext...

    Hey jsl, I've read a bunch of your posts and they have been helpful. Do you think you could take a quick look at my post in the other big thread to give me a pointer? I've got a 5850 too (XFX) and I keep messing up. cheers
  9. Hi all, been reading this thread along with wmarsh's, dong's, and mucha's and really appreciate the time and effort you guys and gals have put into this. I'm trying to get my Display Port connector on my XFX 5850 working. It's getting recognized by the OS (screenshot/Display preferences, etc) but the screen is always blank. I'm connecting my 24" LCD on the top DVI port, small 17" LCD on bottom DVI port, my HDTV is hooked up like this: HDMI -> DVI adapter, long DVI cable, DVI -> Active DP adapter, into the video card. I'm really close but I just can't figure out the last few steps. I've tried many settings for the personalities but they all end up in a blank screen (on both monitors) after boot. I'm not looking for HDMI audio, just looking to get Eyefinity/triple monitors working (it works flawlessly in Windows 7). Running the Uakari framebuffer with GraphicsEnabler=Yes First of all, I'm running the ATI 1.6.32.12 kexts out of [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.4. Quoting the installer: "Updated ATI kexts from the Mac OS X v10.6.7 Update for early 2011 MacBook Pros." If I understand correctly, this means my personalities are hard coded in the specific ATI controllers, in my case, ATI5000Controller, and not ATIFramebuffer. This I've checked. Running bcc9's ati_personality 0.6 script perl ati_personality.pl -a -x, gives me: Kext ATI5000Controller ... Personality: Uakari ConnectorInfo count in decimal: 4 Disk offset in decimal 172576 0000000 00 04 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 71 00 00 12 04 04 01 DP 0000010 04 00 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 01 12 01 03 DVI 0000020 00 02 00 00 14 00 00 00 00 71 00 00 00 00 06 05 ?? 0000030 00 08 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 71 00 00 22 05 05 04 HDMI 0000040 which corresponds to this: Running bcc9's radeon_bios_decode on Cypress.bin (extracted using GPU-Z in Windows 7), I get: ATOM BIOS Rom: SubsystemVendorID: 0x1682 SubsystemID: 0x2972 IOBaseAddress: 0x0000 Filename: 585ZAF22.BIN BIOS Bootup Message: CYPRESS CR PRO GDDR5 BIOS UCODEv:126 PCI ID: 1002:6899 Connector at index 0 Type [@offset 44846]: DisplayPort (10) Encoder [@offset 44850]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY2 (0x21) i2cid [@offset 44974]: 0x90, OSX senseid: 0x1 Connector at index 1 Type [@offset 44856]: HDMI-A (11) Encoder [@offset 44860]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY2 (0x21) i2cid [@offset 45001]: 0x93, OSX senseid: 0x4 Connector at index 2 Type [@offset 44866]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44870]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY1 (0x20) i2cid [@offset 45038]: 0x92, OSX senseid: 0x3 Connector at index 3 Type [@offset 44876]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44880]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC2 (0x16) i2cid [@offset 45038]: 0x92, OSX senseid: 0x3 Connector at index 4 Type [@offset 44886]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44890]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY (0x1e) i2cid [@offset 45075]: 0x94, OSX senseid: 0x5 Connector at index 5 Type [@offset 44896]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44900]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (0x15) i2cid [@offset 45075]: 0x94, OSX senseid: 0x5 which IMO matches the Uakari FB pretty closely. Last night I burned a Ubuntu 11.04 LiveCD to get some of the logging data on my card (for Transmiter and Encoder values) and I didn't get any further, but maybe I missed something. Here's a link to the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file produced after booting with the F6 => ESC => "radeon.modeset=0" trick: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/62786/hackintosh/Xorg.0.log.txt (Side note: I was able to get a mirror image in Ubuntu between my 24" and my HDTV on the DP port.) In the log, I see UNIPHY2 for my DP connector, and DIG4 a lot, which means 0x04 for the Encoder byte. And for the Transmitter byte, it looks like 0x12 is appropriate, given UNIPHY2. I guess the last thing to think about is LINK_A, LINK_B, or DUAL_LINK (according to this post?) I tried 0x22 but that didn't work, and anyway, wouldn't that conflict with the HDMI port on senseid 04? * * * Should this IORegistryExplorer screen be a concern, the fact that it mentions ATI X3000 controller? * * * Any pointers appreciated, I feel like I'm close!
