UPDATE: 26 September 2009, Kexts Download link below

 

I was frustrated at first when I tried to install drivers for my GeCube X1650 Pro 512 MB PCIe (71c6). I tried every method I could find in this forum and still it didn't work out perfectly. So I tried mix matching different methods and my nightmares went away. I'm calling every X1650 users to come here and tell us your success story to help others cause I can see that different people have different success story with this particular graphic card.

 

The spec for the rig I used are:

ASUS P5LD2-X / GBL Motherboard
Intel Core2Duo 2.4 GHz
Vanilla 9.6.0 Kernel
2 GB single slot DDR2 Kingston memory
GeCube X1650 Pro 512 MB PCIe (71c6) -> Using DVI2VGA Adapter
PS2 Keyboard & Mouse
ASUS DVD-RW drive
160 GB Hitachi SATA Drive (Vista & XP)
40 GB Seagate Baracude 7200 rpm IDE (Leo 10.5.6)

 

I'll go first:

0. Used a DVI2VGA adapter for my card.

1. Clean install of Kalyway 10.5.2. DO NOT INSTALL ATI video drivers.

2. Installed Leopard Graphics Update by manually downloading from Apple's website.

3. Upgraded to 10.5.6 by using Netkas' howto. Don't worry, even though it's titled for 10.5.3, it'll work just fine.

4. Removed all ATi kexts except ATINDRV.kext, ATIRadeonX1000.kext, ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin, ATIRadeonX1000GLDriver.bundle, ATIRadeonX1000VADriver.bundle and ATIRNDRV.kext.

5. Installed this kext pack (only for 71c6 and 10.5.6 Leo).

 

The following 3 steps are edited excerpts from kozlowski's original post on another thread.

 

6. Copied files "ATIRadeonX1000.kext","ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin","ATIRadeonX1000GLDriver.bundle" from /System/Library/Extensions to my desktop.

7. Showed contents of "ATIRadeonX1000.kext", went into /Contents/ and edit the file Info.plist. The line under IOPCIMatch have lots of other device ids. Removed the other device ids and inserted my own 0x71c61002.

8. Showed contents of "ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin", edited "Info.plist" with TextEdit, edited 2 strings in the following format: 100271C0-0000-0000-0000-000a27898d3e and replaced the 71c0 with 71c6 on both. Save the file.

 

9. Used Kext Helper to copy the 3 files back and repaired permissions.

10. Used the Extension Repair app to repaired permissions again and flushed the cache.

11. Reboot

 

After I rebooted, it looked like it was hanging but I realized afterwards it was because I haven't applied the restart patch for my motherboard. I pressed the reset button and it booted straight into the desktop. I saw that it was still in 1024x768. Checked System Profiler and boy it was relieving. QE & CI were perfect and went into System Preferences / Display to be more excited when all the resolutions were all there!

 

Here's my System Profiler:

There you go guys, hope this helps!

I'm using the X1650 Pro 0x71c1 and have only been able to change my resolution, no methods I have found have enabled any other goodies. Wish I could get it fixed.

Okay, I had problems before when copying files to the extensions folder where i would get a message saying I did not have permission to do what I wanted. So I went into the folder and took every file i was trying to replace and backed them up to the desktop, then moved them from the extension folder to the trash bin.

 

Used these drivers: http://redirectingat.com/?id=292X457&u...0_71c1.zip.html

 

Here is my result: http://i41.tinypic.com/10cklk3.png

 

I'm happy to say, so far so good!!!

 

I'm installing WoW right now, so we shall see how that goes ;)

Ok my unsuccess stories lol

Im use kalyway 5.1 with graphics update for 5.2 by apple

and install modbin's packaged x1650 agp/pcie ... check permissions .. repaired .. and remove kext caches ... Reboot

i got full artifacts on whole of my screen but desktop environment still load and i got all resolutions and can change its.

But no CI/QE support ... Reboot

 

Put all kexts from Modbins 71c7 Working Fix for 5.2 .. repaired all permissions .. remove kext caches .. Reboot

After Restart :

 

- Got screen msg "Can not load ATY_WORMY.kext at ATINDRV.kext contents plugins"

 

- But I got CI/QE and Rotation Enable support ... but screen resolutions back to default 1024 X 768 plus mouse tearing .. and cant change it.

 

- Can't use OpenGL apps

 

- I thought probs at ATY_WORMY.kext inside ATINDRV contents plugin .. so i repair permission for that kext .. remove kext caches and ... Reboot

 

- I Got THE BLACK SCREEN YAY !! ... rebooooooooooot by reset button LOL :D

- I remove ATY_WORMY.kext as single user

- I got my CI/QE rotation back 1024 x 768 still .. with glitch and mouse tearing all openGL apps Crashed .. except xbench .. but after xbench mouse pointer disappear and screen full of artifacts.

 

- Ok this stupid question .. What the heck happen with ATY_WORMY.kext at ATINDRV.kext contents plugin ? It does influence with OpenGLframework ?

 

My Specs :

Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-G31m-S2C ( G31 chipset )

Proccesor : Intel Dual Core 2.2 GHz

RAM : 2 GB

 

GPU : ATI X1650-Pro PCIe 16X / 512 VRAM (1 GB hyper memory support at WindowsXP ) device ID : 71C7 (RV535 chipset)

 

Many thanks for all kext develops

Thank you!! it worked for me !

Running MAC OS X 10.5.8 and I have radeon x1650 PCIe 256 MB, Vendor:ATI (0x1002) Device ID:0x71c6. What i did was that i started with downloading these drivers "71c6 hxxp://rapidshare.com/files/67198875/MacLovin_ATi__71c6__Installer_OSX86_10.5.zip.html" and then started from step no 6 !

 

6. Copied files "ATIRadeonX1000.kext","ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin","ATIRadeonX1000GLDriver.bundle" from /System/Library/Extensions to my desktop.

7. Showed contents of "ATIRadeonX1000.kext", went into /Contents/ and edit the file Info.plist. The line under IOPCIMatch have lots of other device ids. Removed the other device ids and inserted my own 0x71c61002.

8. Showed contents of "ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin", edited "Info.plist" with TextEdit, edited 2 strings in the following format: 100271C0-0000-0000-0000-000a27898d3e and replaced the 71c0 with 71c6 on both. Save the file.
