some updates folks,


I managed to find some info reg my spec card:

(PCI Device 1002-9442 / 1787-2266 (Rev 00); Chip Type ATI display adapter (0x9442)


i suspect 0x9442 is my dev id ?



i went and bought PlistEdit Pro so i can edit the plist and enter my dev-id


At the moment i only have 3 patched Ati related kexts on my S/L/E






i found all these patched versions here where people said will work on my card.

in fact i had to delete all other ati files and insert these so i can boot in normal mode



ofcourse i am now stucked in 1024x768 fixed mode and without qe/ci



i need to now which of these 3 kexts needs editing, and blind me i tried opening one just for test and i saw so many strings and keys, do i need to start a new key/string? if not which one do i edit..?




thanks in advance
