ATI Radeon HD 4650 - any support QE/CI?

QE/CI can't work with this card.

And, as I understood, we'll never see the solution? Is it absolutely impossible (to enable QE/CI) or is it temporary problem which could be solved later?

i'm still waiting a solution too ! :unsure:

what's new ?

 

What about ATI Mobility cards?

 

Dell XPS 16.

 

HP Envy.

 

ASUS G73.

 

The sexiest laptops use ATI Mobility cards. They are the best.

 

Soon ATI will hit the market with Fusion, which will grab a big chunk of the market. Are Hackintoshes destined to be the fare of Wal-Mart bought laptops and netbook {censored}?

You can force resolution higher by editing the file com.apple.boot.plist but that's all.

 

 

Specify "In Leopard"

 

In Snow leopard QE/CI ok with 4650 and 4670

 

Nothing for mobility series 46x0

Hi All,

 

i have hp pavilion dv7 2043 with the following configuration

 

Processor 2.0 Core 2 Duo (t6400)

4GB Ram (ddr2)

ATI 4650 Graphics Card (1 GB)

Dual Hard 500 GB WD

and and i think that is enough for the installation

 

now here comes the problem

i can install kalyway but with very low graphics and that sucks to work with. its native resolution is 1600x900

 

Is there anyway i can install all my drivers and get best out of it. also i am not having any sound, but lan is working fine. nothing else, no cam, wifi , nothing

 

Can Somebody Help me in this regard.

 

 

 

Thanks

It only works in Snow Leopard, so you have to read a guide on how to install SL.

ASUS EAH4650 with 1GB

 

Retail SL 10.6.3

Chameleon RC4 (graphicsEnabler=y; motmot as Framebuffer)

+ 10.6.2 kexts

ATIFramebuffer

ATIRadeonX2000

This is how I got my ASUS EAH4650 low profile to have all resolutions and QE/CI

I installed hazard 10.6.2 and I selected customize. I selected pcefi 10.5, evoenabler, aty_int Basically ignoring anything 4800 related.

After the installation had completed, I navigated to the "hard drive/system/library/ extensions" and made a copy of "ATIRadeonX2000.kext" and "ATI4600Controller.kext" to the desktop. I deleted the kexts for all other ati 4500 4700 4800. Just highlight a few and "right click" then "move to trash".

On the desktop I right clicked on each kext and clicked "show package contents" then I clicked on the "contents" folder and opened "info.plist" with "text editor". I then proceeded to remove all vendor IDs except mine which was 0x94981002. Then I saved the text file.

I downloaded "kext helper b7" google it.

Then I dragged and dropped the newly modified kexts to the kext helper and proceeded to install them as per the kext helpers instructions.

Then I went into the "Applications" and clicked on the "kext utility" I let it do its thing- takes about 10 minutes on my machine. You can see here if your graphicsenabler is set to "Y" . Then when prompted I rebooted. I got the usual startup stuff happen then my screen went black. I simply switched to VGA port and voila! A fully functional 4650 hardware accelerated.

 

 

My kexts are attachedArchive.zip

Well I a managed to get QE/CI working as well as resolution change, but seem to be stuck in mirror mode.

 

-I am running a Diamond Radeon HD 4650.

-I am using 10.6.3 with the 10.6.3 kexts.

-I have edited 4600Controller and Radeon2000 to include my device ID.

-I am using one monitor with straight VGA and the other using a DVI-VGA Converter.

-If I remove the DVI-VGA Converter and have 1 monitor connected VGA and the other DVI, then both screens go into sleep mode on boot.

-I have made sure to remove all enablers from /S/L/E as well as /E/E
