    10.7.4 LVDS kexts for Ati HD 4650mobility Toshiba

    @kif.007 No I don't know. I mod only kexts for my own usage and have no idea what to do for other hardware as I don't own any other card.. Hey, I am no professional or multi-hardware owner.. Just someone that likes to try the impossible on his own machines. ( I hated vista and win7 .. ubuntu works on my laptop, is great but lacks professional apps tragically - therefore Mac OS X was my ONLY solution.. )

    10.7.4 LVDS kexts for Ati HD 4650mobility Toshiba

    @plsh2me : don't know . Have you repaired your permissions/renewed the kextcaches and so on ? If nothing helps, just use the 10.7.3 version from me. @pma61: I don't have access to the build as I am not a paying Apple Developer - If nothing much has changed in the kexts, then the method should be the very same, provided that Apple did not change the LVDS infos in the binary. You can then easily do the modification on your own with any hex editor. See the read me document here. Else wait until 10.8 is on sale . Although I don't like the idea of switching to the very first release. Apples OSX does ALWAYS has bugs in their .0 versions. See, Lion was horrible until 10.7.2. Now I really really love it and it is fun to use it. But before.. oh my..
  10. Hi! I tried to patch mountain lion kext for mobility 4650 using your guidelines, but Apple has rewritten all binaries. If you want take a look of them you can email me... :-)[email protected]

    Sorry :P now they works! if you give me your email I can send you kexts!

    10.7.4 LVDS kexts for Ati HD 4650mobility Toshiba

    well these are based on the ones from 10.7.4 delta update, so if you run 10.7.4 you should use these of course. They are tailored for the rest of the system ;-) thank you for the compliments. So far I provided from 10.6.8 to current.. the trick is always the same, see info pdf.
  13. Version 1.0


    LION 10.7.4 ( 32/64 )LVDS/Laptop Screen Drivers with 3D and Powermanagement for Toshiba L500-120 ( core2duo ) with Ati Radeon HD mobility 4650 1GB ( device id 9480!) , 15.6 inches 1366x768 based upon OSX own iMac Drivers ( uses Mobility 4670 ). ATY_INIT included for proper 3D acceleration . Put a SMBIOS of MacBookPro5.1 in your /Extra Folder for Clockgating/"Powerplay" Fan settings to work correctly. All necessary infos + screenshots what was modded is in the pdf. All working fine here - Even FinalCut X renders properly with this 2.5 year old Toshiba Laptop. So drivers work as in real mac.
  14. Version 1.0


    Notice : If you have downloaded these 11D50 kexts, you are done. The final update contains the same files, so nothing to do. for 10.7.3, FINAL = build 11D50 ATY_INIT for QE/CI, put in /S/L/E, boot with GraphicsEnabler=No. SMBIOS of MacBookPro5,1 ( recommended for Core2Duo Laptops ) or iMac9,1 or 10,1 to activate Ati Powerplay Energysaver Feature. Will only work if your Laptop outputs via LVDS Shrike Framebuffer. DeviceID = 1002 ( = ATI ) 9480 ( = HD46xx family )

    @hanaheeno : ati 4650 card uses ATI4600controller.kext and RadeonX2000 plugins, so why should I edit 5000/6000 series kexts ?? I don't even know how these cards operate because I don't have any of them. I only do work for the hardware that I personally have,own and know how to edit them for Mac OS..
