About This File

This will solve Ati, Ati Mobility 5450, 5470 etc.. Full QE/CI support..

requires: OSX Lion 10.7.3, 10.7.4..

my bootloader: Chameleon r2000 .html"]http://www.osx86.net/view/2848-chameleon_r2000_-_mountain_lion_[updated].html


1 : remove all ATI related kexts from System/Library/Extensions

2 : unzip and copy all the kext to your desktop

3 : install kexts with Kext Utility or Kext Wizard

4 : set GraphicsEnabler=Yes in org.chameleon.Boot.plist

5 : repair permissions

6 : enjoy (boot with AtiConfig=Shrike or other..)


Boot with:

AtiConfig=Shrike for VGA, HDMI for some pc..

AtiConfig=Eulemur for LVDS (internal display) for some pc..

AtiConfig=Hoolock for VGA, LVDS mirror for some pc..

If you get striped screen (etc: in Hoolock), connect your computer to VGA, and will work.. Iif you want LVDS and you get striped screen, switch res, and will work.. (VNC, or VGA) you must use SwitchResX (OR another personality, OR EDID, inject!!!)

If not work but you want LVDS (internal display), try AtiConfig other personalitys.. :encouragement:

DVD Player: http://oi49.tinypic.com/148lugy.jpg

In Mountain Lion (Offical ML kexts!!) or graphics wont work, don't delete all ATI kext (backup them)! add your dev id to info.plist under IOPCIMatch

to the ATi5000controller.kext and AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext...

Aiuto: Ho installato tutto e funzionano perfettamente sullo schermo del mio laptop solo se attacco un monitor Vga. Senza cavo ho schermata nera. Come risolvo il problema?

Help: I've installed all and my Display work only if there is a second monitor attached in vga port (che screen is on my laptop screen). Without second monitor i have black screen. How can i solve the problem?

This won't work in Mountain Lion as it has new ATI kexts - AMDRadeonAccelerator and a new ATI5000Controller. Those kexts should be edited to your own needs instead of using Lion kexts. That way you'll get QE/CI.

@baguzajja you can find Mountain Lion, and Lion kexts here (recommend to use 10.7.4, in 10.7.5 someone et: me got graphics issues, big fps, freeze etc... use 10.7.4)

http://bit.ly/Y7RNtb This is my 'hackintosh' project..

All kexts are working for me.. And many others, give a chance... :$

Make your resulution with switchresx, and do an EDID inject..

Boot with AtiConfig=Hoolock (internal), AtiConfig=Shrike (hdmi, or VGA)

when the finderbar transparent you do good work.. :)

I hope you can fix this, and have nice graphics ;)
