64-bit aty_init for lion

32/64-bit aty_init, works for lion, seems to work for snow too, no atombios routines, so only single card systems supported.

It’s beta

btw, fakesmc works fine.

    I got Lion installed in one take only! (with the files from apple life)
    Now I need to sort out the ethernet (the old working kext from SL doesn’t work on Lion) and the gfx (mine is a gts250) with an injector perhaps?
    It seems like ages ago when I last used an injector! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is there a workable bootloader out for it yet?

  14. February 28th, 2011 | 9:57 pm

    Hah! I finally get Lion works at my GigaMac!!!
    That’s simple, Mac BIOS by cartri + XPC
    no fakesmc, no legacy kexts exept for audio.
    and everything works just awesome!

    @ All you bitchers; Seriously, piper down or don’t bother to post. Waaa waa waa like babies wanting their mother tit. Things will come when they come. And if you ASK for ANYTHING here you WILL be ignored. Do you all want Netkas to be shut down?! This IS not a HELP BOARD!!! This is purely news!

    Hi Netkas

    Hi my ATI based MSI HAWK R 5770 Graphics Card started working without any extensions what so ever. In fact all the outputs are working now.

    My question is if I can take it back to Snow Leopard ?

    Use Xite XPC Flash
    The loading key costs by default -ั…, was loaded, has chosen a disk with the developed Lion, input and loading and installation should begin… Simply, but not at all occurs

    Hi guys, im needing some help here I have Lion installed, is there any way to get a fully working machine with my ati 4850 gfx. If I install ATY_Init for lion my screen goes garbled.

    Any help appreciated.

    ATY_Init works great with my ATI HD 5850; I recommended iBoot 1.2 (bases on XPC Boot loader) and booting very fast! Stable!

    Lion RULES! (But I don’t like the new UI)

    Hello all, i have acer aspire 5930g and i have installed lion on 160gbyte external hdd with my iMac.

    I put the hard drive in my lappy and I made the drive via usb, but lion will not start. I tried to write -v-f to go into verbose at startup but I have same problem … I then changed the hdd Boot.plist Lion but I would not change. Unfortunately, I have the gray screen with the apple logo and the icon turns… Any idea for verbose mode?
