MBP2012 ati drivers fix cayman coldboot bug

I’m able to boot 6970 into lion right from cold start, using mbp2012 update’s drivers

We just need to hunt down opengl && opencl frameworks from 2012 macbooks and cayman is done for lion, (maybe a little patch will be needed, but still, no coldboot bug is great news)

    I have a retina MBP on order here at the office. Once it shows, I’ll post them up if someone else hasn’t already.

    is this where you get the drivers from?

    what else is needed to get Cayman working in lion?

    Here’s the MacBook Pro 2012 Mid 2012 Update PKG. You can extract the frameworks using Pacifist or some other tool.

    ///thanks, i posted link to this pkg in few hours after wwdc keynote
