  1. ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 on Sony FW

    Hi asofan, I also have a Vaio and the connector info indeed does not show any i2c-related information for the LVDS connector. This seems to be a common issue with Vaio's, in that a different type of connector is used instead of the common i2c chips. I thus never managed to get my internal screen working fully. It is possible to get things up and running using your native resolution by using GraphicsEnabler=No and Graphics Mode=1600x900x32 (if that is your native res) in your com.apple.boot.plist (or org.chameleon.boot.plist if you're using a more recent version of Chameleon). In this way, OSX will boot using VESA-enabled graphics. You just won't have QE/CI (i.e. hardware acceleration). External connections do work fine though. If you hook up an external VGA monitor or HDMI screen you'll have all resolutions and full QE/CI. Just follow the different tutorials around. Good luck!
  2. DSDT Auto-Patcher

  3. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Hi Maldon, Thanks for all your hard work. I've attached the files for my Sony Vaio VPC-EC3M1E. Specs: Intel® HM55 Express-chipset Intel® Core™ i5-460M-processor 4GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650-graphics 17,3 inch WXGA++ (1600x900) screen Everything is working fine (running 10.6.8), except for the following: - Screen brightness changes - Power management (showing it's on battery while it's not, etc.) - Sleep mode - No hardware acceleration on internal LVDS (HDMI and VGA ports are fine when using the right framebuffers) I'd be very grateful if you could compile a DSDT for me. I tried to do it myself, but keep on having loads of errors. To fix the internal screen, I think adding dual-link to the DSDT might help (based on http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...;#entry1362685). Would it be possible for you to also include this? Muito obrigado! send_me.zip
  4. Help testing/getting to work Mobility 5650

    I'm also running OSX 10.6.7 on a Vaio with a Mobility 5650 (VPC-EC3M1E). Everything's working, except for QE/CI on my internal screen and the ethernet card (same as yours, I don't think there's a working kext for it). What I did: - Booted and installed retail 10.6.3 using Nawcom's boot-CD. - Combo-updated to 10.6.7 - Installed [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Chameleon with ATI support using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] - Installed MBP Spring 2011 ATI kexts - Replaced boot-file (from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=250905) for correct 5650 identification during boot - Updated Chameleon's theme.plist files to display my native resolution during boot (1600x900x32) Maybe some of these steps can help you out? When I boot with GraphicsEnabler=no, OSX boots normally using my native resolution, but without QE/CI support. When booting with GraphicsEnabler=yes AtiConfig=Eulemur -v, I get all display resolutions and full QE/CI on my external monitor (VGA) or TV (HDMI). The funny thing is, if I boot without -v (so, GraphicsEnabler=yes AtiConfig=Eulemur), my internal screen is scrambled (white lines, blurry, etc.) and my external screens are identified as extended desktops. I tried EDID injection (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=208410), but to no avail. However, if I VNC into my laptop I can see all screens detected correctly and with the right resolutions. I think my problem relates to my native res being 1600x900, which supposedly needs dual-link support. I tried to modify my DSDT to enable that (based on http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...;#entry1362685), but I can't get my DSDT to compile correctly. Anyone care to help? Would be great if we could once and for all solve the mysteries surrounding the 5650M!
  5. Introduce yourself.

    Hi all, I'm new to the whole OSX86 thing and started playing around with it a few days ago. I own a Sony Vaio VPC-EC3M1E laptop with an Intel i5 460M processor and an ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 graphics card. So far, I've managed to install OSX 10.6.3 and update to 10.6.7 using nawcom's boot-CD as a dual-boot with Windows 7 on my MBR-partitioned drive. Everything is working fine, except for my sound (Realtek ALC269), ethernet (Marvell Yukon 88E8059) and graphics (1024x768 on my internal LVDS using regular boot; blank LVDS using GraphicsEnabler=yes, but native resolutions and QE/CI on both HDMI and VGA outputs). I hope to be able to find some solutions for my non-functioning hardware on this forum. Thanks!
  6. Finally QE/CI on Mobility 5650!

    Hi all, First of all, good work in getting this far! I'm currently trying to get my 5650 to work properly on my Sony Vaio VPC-EC3M1E. What I did so far: - Installed OSX Retail 10.6.3 using Nawcom's boot-CD (0.3.1) - Combo-updated to 10.6.7 - Before reboot, installed the necessary kexts from Lion - Replaced my boot file with the one from the first post - Installed Chameleon RC5 r748 (with Kabyl support) using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] - Installed SwitchResX and created a custom resolution of 1600x900 (native resolution for my LVDS) If I boot with GraphicsEnabler=yes, I have native resolutions and full QE/CI on my HDMI output (1920x1080) and my external monitor (1280x1024). Unfortunately, the internal LVDS remains black. Under System Profile, my card is correctly shown as an ATI 5000. Based on the above posts, I tried to get my LVDS to work as well using different framebuffers. So far, I've tried Eulemur, Hoolock, Vervet, Baboon, Langur, Nomascus and Madison. All result in either a black LVDS or one with a weird-looking 'white cloud'. Booting goes fine though, since I can always VNC into the operating system. In all cases, available resolutions are 1024x768, 1280x1024 and 1680x1050. For some reason, the custom resolution in SwitchResX doesn't show up anymore. Also, if I check my video card under System Profile it shows 'ffff...' etcetera. Can anyone point me in the right direction here? Any help would be much appreciated! EDIT: Played around a bit more and made some progress. I extracted my screen's EDID based on a guide elsewhere and edited the DisplayProductID-717 file. If I boot in verbose mode, my card is identified as a 5650 Nomascus. Unfortunately, using Nomascus as a framebuffer doesn't work (leads to a deadbeef error). Using Hoolock leads to my external monitor being identified as main, with nothing on the laptop screen. The closest I got was using Baboon as a framebuffer. It correctly identified my external monitor as an extended desktop, but the laptop screen still shows white lines, blocks, etcetera. I was able to VNC into OSX though and noted that all the correct resolutions are shown! Yet if I change them, the screen just flickers a bit. The native resolution of my laptop screen is 1600x900. I read that maybe another solution is required for screens larger than 1440x900? Anyhow, hope someone can help me out!
