Some news about 10.6.6 and App Store

Here is screenshot f 10.6.6 update pkg.

And what we can see, there is CommerceKit.framework

So here is my guess – it will not be like ios app store, where apps is encrypted and only buyer can decrypt it and then run.

It will be more like a Steam, where all apps depends on library which provides authorization for user to run the app.

EFI EBC Evergreen rom hacked

Apple made two checks in their efi ebc driver for 5870 and 5770, to preventus flashing pc cards.

But nothing can stand against me:D

Sshot of first flashed(with ebc rom) 5870 running in MacPro

QE_CI patch for GraphicsUpdate 1.0

4890/4870×2 users and etc (who use qe_ci exotic patch) ,

p.s. 4870 and 4850 do NOT need this

5770 and 5870 in MacPro and rom

I used efi rom from new imac’s 5750 and original 5770 pc rom to create custom hybrid rom.

It works in osx, no injector used.

Since I used mobility ATI rom we have nothing from card on boot, but once osx booted – the card works.

Both dvi ports work, displayport works too, 3 displays doesnt work atm.

Once we have macpro’s 5770/5870 roms boot screen should work too. But for now you can already enjoy 5770 in your macpro.

It only works on 2008+ macpros, because efi is 64-bit now, not ebc anymore.

screenshots and the rom:

glview

glview

before flashing you also need to install driver.

Also, 5870 is working too in macpro.

Guess what?

5850/5870 confirmed working
5970 works after adding devid into ati5000controller.kext
5770 works, but need both dvi to be connected to display.
5750 – same as 5770, need to add dev-id to ati5000controller.kext
for 57×0 it worth to try Eulemur Vervet as framebuffer (edit plist), default one is Uakari

Vervet seems to support dual dvi on 57×0

Things you need to test it:
aty_init from here (works only on hackintoshes, not macpro, macpro discussion still going on macrumors) , the kext is 32-bit only for the moment

unpack and install both at time, then reboot and pray, cards to test so far – 5850/5870/5970.

consider this as beta

things to keep in mind – disable graphicsenabler, boot in 32-bit kernel mode.

QE_CI exotic cards patch for 10.6.4

Due to me having not enough time and Apple/amd removing r600 (hd2900) support from kext it took longer than usualy.

But it is, should work now.

dont forget to uncheck ati4800controller option if you use framebuffer from previous osx versions.

FIXED 64-bit mode, it was typo, sry.

btw, versions for 10.6.2/10.6.3, just in case, are here

OSX 10.6.4

There is nothing impressive in it actualy.

So, for now you can just use 10.6.3 update guide to update to 10.6.4

– carefuly read instruction in installer for a part of this pkg, when installing.

OpenSource is good

Yeah, it’s very good.

some new mods for fakesmc to monitor different temps of your pc – link.

IntelThermal – Intel CPU temperature monitoring.
