Our GPU has 2 dev-ids, anyone have to tell me ALL dev-ids present into X1000 and X2000 because i'm not with leo at the moment (or if he can post them both).

Thanks.

 

//EDIT: Note that if you go into "PCI/AGP Video" section, you'll get this information:

Device Description Device Type

ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 (M64M) Video Adapter

ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 (M64M) 3D Accelerator

 

that tell us that our chipset now is an M64M...

I've been screwing around some more with all possible drivers, and in the end i now don't know what was my original etc etc. I've opened and edited all kinds of kext's, and now the whole MacOSX doesn't do a thing anymore.. lol

 

Lucky me i didn't have files on that disk that were unreplaceble, so i'm installing a fresh iATKOS dvd again.

Hi to all!

 

Sony cr11s with x2300 here too, im enjoying so much the CI and QE, thanks, thanks, thanks.

 

About the 64 Vram, i have chequed on http://nvinject.free.fr/, they use a solution for that adding this line to the Nvidia kext´s info.plist , but i have done too on ATIRadeonX1000.kext:

 

VRAM,totalsize 00000010 (You have to use PLIST EDITOR)

 

This line makes the VRAM appear as 256MB on Leopard, if you want more info about that, visit the downloads page of that website, they explain it better than me :rolleyes:

Tried to use switchresx to change resolution but no success.

 

Hope this helps...

If you need people for testing things, just tell me and i will help as much as i can.

I have attach a pic of my system profiler as proof of 256 Vram.

Pere what's ur maximum resolution?

 

I installed iATKOS againa and checked some options with kernels and stuff just to experiment, but it didn't even load. So, before I give it yet another try (the 5th time), I want to be sure the x2300 is working with 1280 x 800 resolution... it didn't work for me even with the tutorials here and the .kext in this thread.. :)

 

where can i find some info about programming for mac? I used to program some stuff for windows and now i wanna try on mac..

HI! :help:

 

My maximum (and only) resolution is 1280x800, i am trying games and they worked perfectly as other video programs.

Dont know where you can learn something about mac programming...

 

Can you post your steps installing? Maybe we can find why you cant get running your x2300.

Hi,

 

I have ATI X2300 and everything working (QE/CI) but only in 1024x768 resolution. I couldn't make 1280x800 working at all.

 

I noticed that I don't have ATIinject.kext in my Extensions folder.

 

Do you guys have this file? Should we have it to have this resolution working?

 

Tks

I think thay have it because it become a bridge between graphic card and the os(like directx) so we command it like we want...anyway i'm also waiting for a response.

who ever is saying that X1000 isn't the real drivers has smoked {censored}. X2300 is based on X1400 series so even on windows it uses X1000 drivers and not X2000.

 

Why do you have some artifacts and no resolution change ? Because framebuffer isn't loaded. Lots of them are in ATINDRV.kext/Contents/PluGins.

 

For instance ATY_Wormy is ATI X1600 framebuffer, ATY_Alopias is X1800 i think, ATY_Lamna is HD2600, ATY_Iago is HD2400, etc....

 

If no framebuffer is loaded, you won't be able to change the rez, that's all. Don't try to fix anything with X1000.kext cause there isn't anything to fix : the kext is working 100% fine and provides you QE/CI (OpenGL) and that's what it is for.

 

I'm not sure any of the ATY_ kexts are a good framebuffer for X2300 but you never know, it's worth trying (what does natit is recognize your card and run ATY_Lamna for example if you have a HD2600, etc.. so just edit natit & try)

@pere: thank you very much, they are precious info =) I'll try to extract something from there.

 

@cyclonefr: good info man, now that we have the road we're going to cross it :) but are you sure of that? i'm continously reading some users post that change ALL "aty_*" strings to "display" to get it working...maybe we also have to do that? Someone can try it?

Instructions for it: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry114957 FOLLOW ONLY POINT 2, 4(not sure if needed, honestly i don't know what X1000GA kext do) 5 AND 6(remember to backup files you'll edit!!)

Ok, i tried a Natit for ATY, adding our id (718A) and get black screen and stuck there, but i could see booting with -v that recognices the graphic card as Ati radeon 1450 (this is ok) and tried to use ATY_Alopias.

 

Now we need to know how to tweak the plugin to make it work. Maybe the plugin is not ok for LCD´s or something like this, or is not the correct Natit. I hope someone more enlighten than me can show the path....

 

I have attached the kext for others to try.

Where did you get it? Anyway try my method 2 post below, and don't use natit ;) Although replace "display" step with "ATY_Alopias" and tell us of your failures or successes ;)

Ok, i have try all methods i have find, harcoded every plugin, tried every ATIinject, but no results, i need someone to point me the last ATIinject for Leopard cause maybe i havent used the right one.

 

I have read too that there is no way to make framebuffer works with x1450, but i think it will not be impossible, just we havent find the right way....

i found this on a website about the x2300:

 

Indeed, they reveal the presence of the X2300 HD, codenamed 'M71'. The vanilla X2300 appears to be codenamed 'M64'. Both have 'M' and 'S' variants, indicated by an appropriate suffix to the codename. AMD's M71M chip, incidentally, has been approved for PCI Express compatibility by the PCI SIG, so its release can't be far off.

 

there was not much else information about it, but it makes me think... what is the m54 version then? Lot's of people have that as well i read here.. :Soke.

 

I have some spare time now.I'm goin to install iATKOS v1.0i again, with no plugins according to the tutorial found here:http://inihilist.wordpress.com/2008/01/07/...and-fool-proof/

 

that worked fine all the times i did it, with video card working but not recognized and no CI/QE. Res is 1024 x 768So, once installed, what do i do next?

There are so much stories going here now...do this?

 

- updated with 10.5.2 (thanks to netkas.org's instructions)

- graphic update (from Software Update).

- edit /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist

- replace the existing 0x71871002 with 0x718A1002

- with the program 0xED edit file /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX1000

- Find: 8771 | Replace: 8A71 | Search Type: Hex, then hit Replace All. (should replace 2 incidences)

- Reboot with flag -f

 

(this didn't work for me btw)

 

or am i missing something.. :unsure:

Indeed, they reveal the presence of the X2300 HD, codenamed 'M71'. The vanilla X2300 appears to be codenamed 'M64'. Both have 'M' and 'S' variants, indicated by an appropriate suffix to the codename. AMD's M71M chip, incidentally, has been approved for PCI Express compatibility by the PCI SIG, so its release can't be far off.

 

there was not much else information about it, but it makes me think... what is the m54 version then? Lot's of people have that as well i read here.. :Soke.

 

I have some spare time now.I'm goin to install iATKOS v1.0i again, with no plugins according to the tutorial found here:http://inihilist.wordpress.com/2008/01/07/...and-fool-proof/

 

that worked fine all the times i did it, with video card working but not recognized and no CI/QE. Res is 1024 x 768So, once installed, what do i do next?

There are so much stories going here now...do this?

 

- updated with 10.5.2 (thanks to netkas.org's instructions)

- graphic update (from Software Update).

- edit /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist

- replace the existing 0x71871002 with 0x718A1002

- with the program 0xED edit file /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX1000

- Find: 8771 | Replace: 8A71 | Search Type: Hex, then hit Replace All. (should replace 2 incidences)

- Reboot with flag -f

 

(this didn't work for me btw)

 

or am i missing something.. :huh:

 

Hi Sinnsik, this method must work with you too unless your graphic card revision is different...

Remember to instal Iatkos R2.

If you have any trouble, post here. :)

since internal screen for ati mobility has always been tricky, i suggest you to use an external monitor to do tests.

Hi Pere and cyclonefr,

 

I did all the procedure above, have QE/CI working but in 1024x768 resolution. I didn't install Iatkos R2. My orignal installation was Leopard flat image (mac os x 10.5).

well, I just got the vaio cr25t and wondering how to do with x2300 ,indeed, I do not quite understand how to .even don't understand what you really mean.I follow those steps :

- installed Iatkos 1.0r2

- updated with 10.5.2 (thanks to netkas.org's instructions)

- graphic update (from Software Update).

- edit /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist

- replace the existing 0x71871002 with 0x718A1002

- with the program 0xED edit file /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX1000

- Find: 8771 | Replace: 8A71 | Search Type: Hex, then hit Replace All. (should replace 2 incidences)

- Reboot with flag -f

 

but only find 8771 in 1 incidence. and I really don't know how to proper install atix1000.kext ,so just replace it from downloaded one. mac said the extensions function wrong.

well, I add <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>"1280x800x32"</string>

after restarting, I got "1280x800" but no CI/QE ! so I CAN'T INSTALL FINAL CUT!

seems everyone gets difference. does x2300 has several kinds of chips?! i don't know!!

btw,i downgrade VISTA to XP ,the x2300 driver still a mess

i notice the sony website x2300 driver is different from those over internet ones.

the sony one install " .net 2.0 " first and install driver.and it works.

others only install driver without " .net " and they fail to work in xp!

    • Did you tried use ACPIBatteryManager.kext for the Battery? And for brightness you can use IntelBacklight  Both created by @RehabMan 
    • I have put it into clover drivers 64uefi folder on Yosemite thru High Sierra which allows me to edit my High Sierra disk if needed in Yosemite system.   There is no functionality of apfs in other versions but it does allow other clover bootloaders and systems to recognize the HS apfs drive or open it for inspection.   If you don’t have it you can’t see your HS drive or access it in another macOS version.
    • Hi! Is it possible to get codec AD1981 running with AppleHDA on HP Compaq 8710w? It works nicely with VoodooHDA. Speakers and HP are switching automatically.  Internal and HP mic also work - no switching in SysPref but it works when mic is plugged in and internal mic works when hp mic is unplugged.   It has same weird pathmap - connected directly:  Playback: nid=5 [pin: Speaker (Analog)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001 nid=6 [pin: Headphones (Grey Left)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001   But inputs are really weird. There are 5 nodes from input to HP mic/Internal mic nid=4 [audio input] | + <- nid=21 [audio selector] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=12 [audio mixer] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=30 [audio selector] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 | + <- nid=8 [pin: Microphone (Grey Left)] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 + <- nid=31 [audio selector] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 | + <- nid=24 [pin: Microphone (Analog)] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 Can pathmap like that even work with AppleHDA? What codec should I patch? I tried patches from AD1984 but no luck.    These are manually patched verbs: 00571c10 00571d01 00571e17 00571f90 00570C02 00671c20 00671d10 00671e21 00671f03 00771cf0 00771d00 00771e00 00771f40 00871c30 00871d10 00871e81 00871f03 00971cf0 00971d00 00971e00 00971f40 00a71cf0 00a71d00 00a71e00 00a71f40 01671cf0 01671d00 01671e00 01671f40 01771cf0 01771d00 01771e00 01771f40 01871c40 01871d01 01871ea0 01871f90 01971cf0 01971d00 01971e00 01971f40   Codecgraph and linux codecdump attached. Thx for any help or suggestions.              codec.txt 2.svg codec.txt
    •   Yes, 'cause APFS log is coming before clover boot screen.
    • and you suspect apfs on before clover issues
