6970 working in Lion

With no patch, msaa works.
All you need is drivers from MBP2012 and three more frameworks from mbp2012:


So again, 6970, no coldboot bug, msaa works, itunes doesnt panic, whooooo
smalluxGPU opencl bench causes KP.

    Can these drivers and frameworks be found in the update PKG or do you need a real MPB 2012 to get the files from it ?

    //update pkg missing a lot of files in these frameworks

    Apparently this .pkg has the frame buffer (not tested by me);

    This will work with the HD 6950?

    Has anyone had a chance to try this with a newer GPU such as the 7970 /w 3GB DDR5 VRAM? My brother has this GPU and is looking to swap to a Hackintosh, and has everything supported but his GPU from what I’ve been able to learn. Other wise as far as I know the 7970 has native res, and no hardware acceleration. Can anyone say any different, please?
