  1. 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

  3. UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is now very possible to boot my installer straight off the laptop itself! (Instead of swapping out hdds and stuff) Just install a kext from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/genericusbxhci/. From what I've found, Sony's motherboard uses XHCI to manage even the USB 2.0 drives. With this kext in place in /S/L/E in my OSX Installer, all three ports (USB2 + 3 + 3) work now. P.S. I am using OSX 10.9 Installer but this should work with ML too. Hi Everyone! I managed to get my Sony Vaio SVS1311FGS (Vaio S 2012 Series) on working with Mountain Lion DP4! Spec: i5-3210M (somehow unrecognized, cpuid model not found etc, but works) Intel HD 4000 (main GPU for OSX, works fully *details later below) NVIDIA Geforce GT-640M (Optimus cards are useless for Mac. However, I would like to know how to disable it via DSDT.) Realtek 10EC:8168 Ethernet card (work in progress, I haven't searched deeply for a 64-bit kext that would load in ML) Intel Wifi Card (garbage. I'm using a RTL8192SU USB dongle) Sound Card (lol, I don't know the model, but it works fine with VoodooHDA) (Should be the Intel HD Audio) Notes Beforehand: You cannot plonk in a USB OSX Installer made from either: ######, MyHack or any other USB solution. The absence of a BIOS mod (which I would have avoided anyway) to enable AHCI to get the USB Installer to recognize itself renders using USB Installers useless I'm not sure about using DVDs. I used a Sandy Bridge laptop to act as the installing machine instead. I switched their hard drives and got the thing to work, as my Sandy Bridge is hackintosh-friendly You need a special bootloader. No Chameleon-ML, No Chimera 1.10. You need those special ones OSX CANNOT BOOT FROM UEFI MODE. I use UEFI to go into Windows and Legacy into Mac. YOU MIGHT RUN INTO TROUBLE TRYING TO ENABLE CLICKING ON TRACKPAD. I've somehow managed to enable mine through the keyboard Steps: Partition the hard drive on any partition program (u can use diskpart or Disk Management from Windows itself) Remove it and place it into another machine where the USB Installers have successfully booted Get OSX installed. The hard drive is in a GPT format due to UEFI, no modding of Installer needed. When the hard drive is placed back into the Vaio S, get into the BIOS through F2 at boot and change Booting Mode into 'Legacy' and Place 'External Device' before 'Internal Hard Drive' in boot priorities THE NEXT STEP REQUIRES AN EXISTING MAC, to install the custom bootloader on the USB device. Get the USB Installer, insert it into the other Mac or Hackintosh and install http://blog.stuffedcow.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Chameleon-2.1svn-r2012.pkg, a bootloader by stuffedcow for HD 4000 users. Set the settings on the Installer as follows: Standard boot, GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Ignore the HDMIAudio, NVIDIA, ATI options. When you're done, navigate to the Extra folder on the USB stick, and place the DSDT.aml attached in the zip file in this folder. Boot the computer with this USB stick. When at the boot prompt for the OSX partition in the HDD, type: -v -f "Graphics Mode"="1366x768x32" HD4000PlatformId=3 This should get it all working. Fix Everything Up (Network, etc). Others: INTEL HD 4000 Credits: http://blog.stuffedcow.net/2012/07/intel-hd4000-qeci-acceleration/ The table for HD 4000 is there. Those platform-ids that start with 0166 are for mobile (ours). Those with 0162 are for desktops. If you wish to try the platform-id for the alphabets, a is 10 and b is 11. I've tested them and the platform-id 3 should work for ours. It enabled Internal Screen and HDMI. I'm researchiing on editing the connector info for VGA. Some info on connectors for HD 4000: http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/60010-official-hd-4000-support-11.html NVIDIA GeForce GT640M Useless. Optimus does not work on OSX and probably never will as Apple uses MUXes. Do Note that the Speed/Stamina switch can be switched to either option. OSX does not care. However, I'd like to know how to disable it via DSDT to save battery life. REALTEK 10EC:8168 CARD In progress. INTEL WIFI Nope. Nada. Intel wifi was never used by Apple. USB 2.0 This will work if you use the USBPackage attached. Install the files in the folder 1 first, before installing those in 2.USB3 is a work in progress by other people using Intel's USB3 Controllers, although some have worked by changing XHCI setting in their BIOSes (no such option for us) SOUND Use VoodooHDA for Mountain Lion. SLEEP Using the SleepEnabler for Mountain Lion, but haven't tested yet. TRACKPAD Mine is Synaptics, so it works. But sensitivity needs changing. DSDT.zip USBPackage.zip
  4. Hi. I have around €1200 of extra money on the side and thought I'd get a real Apple desktop as soon as it'd happen to me. The thing is my MacBook Pro is doing fine and my Hackintosh too. Plus my hackintosh has the plus sides of having a Blu-ray burner and a decent graphics card. The thing is, it's now 3 years old, and that was the age of my other computers when they "died". Plus, a SATA port fell off the motherboard last week. I was thinking of getting an i7 Mac mini as well as an OWC Data Doubler and a 256 GB Samsung 840 or Crucial M4 SSD to setup a DIY Fusion Drive (Apple's option here in France only gives you a 128 GB SSD for almost the price of a 512 GB one). The things that appeal me so much are the i7 processor and the USB 3 ports Am I crazy, just a geek or fanboy? Should I get one or put the money on the side and get a new hack once it dies? Thanks for your advice.
