Updated injector(nvidia side)

Recently updated a bit aty_init, fixed few things on nvidia side:

– if video ram was detected as 0, kext will use vram size value from plist

– kext has few nvcaps hardcoded, for different geforce cards types, if you unhappy with it, just add own NVCAP to plist, kext will use it instead of hardcoded one

P.S. now gtx285 works fine on macpro

Link to kext – here

Sometimes kthe kext gets installed with wrong permissions(it will results in panic in nvdaresman), to fix it, boot single user mode and run this commands
mount -uw /
chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions/ATY_Init.kext
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/ATY_Init.kext
reboot

for some reason, this doesnt work with macpro and 4890, so use exisiting solution.

    I solved with help found on macrumors and I updated from 10.5.7 to 10.5.8
    Graphic card is working at full resolution and the only problem I had was with ps2 keyboard, I reinstalled ps2 kext and all went fine

    Well, I can´t get it running – my flashed XFX4870 (512MB) won´t give me login window in 10.5.7/8. 10.5.6 I can login, but it´s slow because no driver loaded.

    When installing the ATY_init.kext I get crash at boot, screenshot here:

    Any ideas what is going wrong here? Card works fine under Windows 🙁

    hi Netkas
    a simple question:
    Could you recommend the best and easiest graphic card to buy and INSTALL that actually works with 10.6 in MacPro(08) with default card ATI2600

    a lot of thanks

    Thanks so much for the injector! It made my GeForce GT 130M 1gb work flawlessly on my Asus N51Vf (trying to help out the googlers here haha.)

    With Snow Leopard that is.

    The EVGA GTX 295 Co-op Edition works under Snow Leopard. It’s awesome. Both 32-bit/64-bit works. Also sleeps works. This is on a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard.

    I created an EFI string and inserted that into the boot plist file. In addition to this, I had to insert 0x05eb10de&0xfff8ffff into the NVDANV50Hal.kext/Contents/Info.plist file.

    Run as root afterwards:
    kextcache -v 1 -t -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

    ## My gfx.plist file:

    Use gfxutil to convert to hex and add to the boot plist file. Run gfxutil -f display and change the PciRoot key.

    Good luck. I did this today to try to make this work so that I could run SL in 64-bit mode. The Netkas ATY_Init kext is currently only 32-bit. (this works for 32-bit if the EFI string doesn’t work for you).

    The gfx.plist data is not shown correctly above. Go to this URL to see the plist file for gfxutil: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=147149&pid=1256652&mode=threaded&show=&st=#entry1256652

    Libor can you please tell me what drivers you selected during installation? Also, what distribution are you using? I am using ideneb with the same Motherboard as you and I don’t know which drivers to select during installation.

    I have found no help elsewhere so if you could please get back to me ASAP that would be great. Thank you very much!

    Hey netkas…

    Thanks again for all your hard work in the osx86 scene. I know it will pay off in the long run in all kimds of ways.

    I have an issue with a GTX 285 2GB card and not getting it to report right. Final Cut says it has -2048MB and all Pro Apps don’t see the RAM. Listed in Sys Profiler as 3.xxxGB RAM and everything else is fine (QE/CI and so on) and tried many solutions but haven’t found the magic mix yet.

    Suggestions? Comments? I am really good at this stuff (2+ years doing it) but this one has me beat right now.

    Oh Master Jedi whatever shall I do? 🙂

    OK So if there is no way to fix it – is it possible to FLASH the card to work only with 1GB?

    is it possible? if it is please explain!
    Its a shame I need to through my EVGA GTX285 2GB OC to the trash – because I can’t use final cut studio!

    This is not working with multiple cards because it is not working with three graphics card and since 3-way SLI is gold standard for gaming today this injector is completely worthless.

    Hi everebody. Own geforce g103M 512M. I’ve found some guides dealing with g105M but I don’t know exactly whether they’re similar or not. Could you give me some advice?
