Just edited the file & page on kexts.com to add your point on the first page! I didn't think it would work using other peoples EDID ;)

The boot file is meant to work on snowy too and as far as I am aware the only difference between this method & the snowy one is the option: AtiConfig. On snowy its Eulemur (as thats what I used).

 

As for AMD, I cannot help you there...sowwie!

@ Dannii.. my bad. I saw it in your signature. Thanks for the help but this method doesnt work on my Toshiba a665d-s6091 with hd 4200m and hd 5650m switchable cards...

switchable are always harder because OSX will choose one over the other.

 

Awesome!! I love you!! I copy all your tutorial in first post!! thankyou!

 

i'm glad finally it was worked out :blink: disappeared for a while but am back now.

 

Getting Lion GM now will let you know how it goes, also have other kexts to work on alc272, and might fix DSDT up :D

Hi danni,

 

The ATI texts included did not have to be included because they are included as stock. Just a heads up tto save time.I,m glad you figured it out thanks,

Good work though, setting up my triple boot now, lion runs so snappy :rolleyes:

 

Forcing EDID just basically unscrambles screen just like SwitchResX did or whatever it was called, the big thing need here is being able to extend monitors so you can dual or maybe even hook to your plasma screen without issues?

 

If all this can be achieved then great.

 

***Update***

I need extended monitors so I'm using combination of Uakari FB and Forced EDID to get my results, Lion works great. will work on my other hardware now :wacko:

Hi atlee, I am so happy you have yours working too! I was following you in the threads to see if you would come up with something, hehe!

 

I only put the stock kext in just in case they were needed, wasn't much work at all and it saves anyone asking for them. As you could see... I don't do things by halves I tend to go a bit ott because it usually saves me time in the long run - in my experience, anyway.

 

The only thing that bugs me about my graphics right now (maybe someone else has had these issues too..) is when I look at gradients I can see the "blocks" of colour change... does anyone get what I mean? Also I really need to calibrate my screen, just can't get it to show colours perfectly (again, I am ott about these things). Another thing that bugs me is brightness I have to use genericbrightness.kext & the brightness app which is a pain but liveable.

There is quite a few DSDT edits you could do for brightness including native brightness, my laptop has native, i don't use any brightness kexts, also regarding your colour issues if you are injecting the right EDID information from windows then your MacOSX should be using your forced edid colour profile.

 

Yeah i had been playing around with ATI 5650m in SL and Lion for quite sometime, I had it working with SwithResX but this new boot file seems to load all four kexts ATI5000Controller, ATIRadeonX3000, ATISupport, ATIFramebuffer which is needed for everything to work.

 

I'm going to copy ati.c inside of the bootfile so i can port it over to all the new RC5 Chameleon release branches.

 

Before the previous boot files would only load every kext except for ATIFramebuffer but now with this new one, everything is good. If you use Uakari FB you can have extended desktop.

 

So I am running dual screens, now i have a great hackingtosh to do design work ;) thanks again for bringing this thread alive, I haven't been around for a while but I'm glad I landed back here.

If you are having the same problem I had on Snow Leopard (which is why I'm no longer on OSX right now), you are experiencing banding and the wrong pixel depth is shown in system profiler (32 bit is shown, but your graphics look more like 16 bit or lower).

 

Please let me know if and how you fixed this :)

Custom forced EDID should fix this.

Hi fellas!

 

I did the whole tutorial two times but I always get to a black screen after booting just like "zapsu" seems to get. I strongly assume I did everything correct. At some part of booting in verbose mode I get some infos about the built-in card (name, memory etc) and also there is no scrambling as i usually get without booting with the boot flag "PCIRootUID=1". I guess this could be a hint that the card is recognized correctly and something else is wrong.

 

Can you give me some advise? May I should try another "AtiConfig"/framebuffer?

Okay, now I had a little breakthrough! I edited my blabla717-file again (surprise: I didn't do everything correctly) and corrected it so that it now is absolutley right. Then i rebooted and got scrumblings again. I nearly gave up for today but i tried the following bootflags in chameleon even though I knew i put it in the com.apple.boot-files in /Extra and the other folder (dont know the exact destination):

 

AtiConfig=Hoolock

GraphicsEnabler=Yes

-v

 

And tada: I had a black screen without blacklight so i took a hdmi cable connected to my TV and plugged it in an there it was: My desktop. Woohoo. But two things:

 

1. Why aren't the flags in the boot-files being used? I didn't install anything which could explain it, just the recommended version of chameleon.

 

2. And what should I do now? I want my LCD being used. Smartie mentioned something like that. Is it easy to fix it? Or will it take another year for me to find out about it?

Hi,

 

I'm new to the Hackintosh Scene, and I've got a question.

 

I'm at SL 10.6.8 right now, and I want to update to Lion. I searched for the "USB methode" you mentioned. So I repaired the 'installESD.dmg' to my 8 gig USB stick. But when I try to boot into the USB stick I got a Kernel Panic, it says something like: "Unable to find a driver for this platform: ACPI [somecrap] IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1504".

 

Did I use the wrong "USB methode" or is there something else I did wrong that causes this KP?

 

Thanks,

 

Lucas T.

 

EDIT: Got it all working now! Thanks for the GREATtutorial!

I compiled new Chameleon RC5 latest v1331 with edited ATI Hardware ID.

 

My Hardware ID is 68C1 but subsys is 1448:103C so if your's is different let me know and i'll add it and recompile easy as.

 

Please find attached.

Hi Atlee,

 

Could you please try to re-compile a boot for my 1002-68C1 / 1025-033E (Rev 00).

 

Many thanks.

What exactly is the advantage of your boot file with the edited ATI Hardware ID above the original boot file ? I'm new to OS X and the whole mackintosh 'thing'. Is it just a upgrade to make it work with the newer Chameleon release?

Sorry for my Noobness.

Hello Atlee,

Using your boot file I cannot get full resolution or QE/CI and wireless (atheros) doesn't work. I am currently using Chameleon rc5 r875 with full resolution and qe/ci. Also get loading errors from audio and ATI3000x kext doesn't load (see underneath).

 

Regards
