  1. Removing GTX 5XX Enabler (which files to rm?)

    Thanks for the response! NVEnabler.kext and Natit.kext are not in my s/l/e directory but maybe I can ask more precisely: Can someone confirm, that - NVDAGF100Hal.kext - NVDANV40HalG7xxx.kext - NVDANV50Hal.kext - NVDAResmanG7xxx.kext - NVSMU.kext do in fact belong to the GTX 5XX Enabler? Maybe simply just by someone with a Radeon card checking if he/she has these files in the s/l/e? And maybe someone knows what other modifications this enabler performs! Thanks already!
  2. Hey Guys! My hackie ran good with a NVIDIA GTX 560, though I got myself a Radeon for running 3D apps, which are still slow and often crashing with the gtx (chess ran smooth though For this I need to remove all the GTX Enabler stuff from my hackie but am not sure of which kext files actually belong to the GTX enabler (and what other stuff?). Also, I am not sure about what to change in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist - do I still need the kernel flags npci=0x2000, PCIRootUID=1, and what about the GraphicsEnabler=Yes? I have a 10.7.3 on an ASUS P8H61-M LE USB 3.0 with an i7 2600 running with E.Beast, U.Beast installation, and some other kexts for LAN and Audio. The old video card is a NVIDIA GTX 560 (bulk, by Point of View Graphics) which I could run with GTX 5XX Enabler 10.7.3 + CUDADriver.pkg (4.0.21) QE/CI: working 100%, Final Cut Pro X Hardware Acceleration working just fine, but 3D apps will crash after a while. Thats why the Radeon.. Thanks already for any helpful reply!

Installing modified BIOS from blogspot blog "bios4asus" for native speedstep 2. formatting an 60GB USB HDD with Mac OS Extended (Journaled) 3. putting the lion installer in my application folder 4. creating bootable USB HDD with UniB 5. connecting USB HDD to my future hackintosh 6. setting SATA to AHCI mode and boot priority on USB HDD in BIOS 7. restarting and installing Mac OS X from the USB HDD 8. running through the first start config, hooking up the LAN and installing update to 7.3 9. creating a time machine backup on the USB HDD (just in case) 10. running xxx with: - xxxxx Install - Repair Permissions - NO audio patch! - NO eSATA patch! -NO graphics patch! - NO USB 3.0 patch! (causes shutdown reboot loop problem and most USB 3.0 devices won't be recognized anyway with this patch even if the bus shows up correctly in the system profile) - Lnx2Mac's Realtek patch - Kext Utily (required in 14. und 18.) - ShowAllFiles (useful) 11. Installing the old CUDA Driver 4.0.21 12. Installing GTX 5XX Enabler 10.7.3 13. DELETING AppleUpstreamUserClient from the System/Library/Extensions 14. Running kext Utily 15. Adding <string>PCIRootUID=1</string> to the Kernel Flags in the Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist 16. Installing a VoodooHDA.kext 2.7.2 for 10.7.3 (which in my case already had the modifications for iGain, iMix, Mic and whatsoever) and if required (distorted output) setting playback to 16bit in Audio-Midi-Setup, if your VoodooHDA.kext does not have these modifications then add <key>MixerValues</key> <dict> <key>iGain</key> <string>0</string> <key>iMix</key> <string>70</string> <key>Mic</key> <string>70</string> </dict> 17. DELETING NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from the System/Library/Extensions (because having modified BIOS with native speedster) 18. Running kext Utily again 19. hooking up USB-bluetooth dongle and pairing magic mouse and wireless keyboard 20. having fun with hackintosh built Thanks for reading!
