    Default [GUIDE] ATI Radeon HD 4350 and Mac OS X 10.6 (and 10.7)

    ATI Radeon HD 4350 is a low-end card just good enough for viewing games and playing Blu-Ray DVDs. Many Manufacturers supply it with your PC. If you want to install Mac and not sure where to start, read on.

    FIRST of all: Let's understand your system. ATI 4350 has 3 connections: HDMI, VGA and DVI. Each has it's own solution.

    SECOND of all: Please make sure you have done these things:
    • Backup all your data to a safe place in case something goes bad
    • Download pFIX 3.1. (Google it. Just don't play with the guitar there! )
    • Download the attached files: Chameleon RC5 r790 and ATY_Init&EVO_Enabler.zip


    If you have a VGA screen:

    VGAs work best with these versions of Mac OS X (Tested):
    • Mac OS X 10.6.2
    • Mac OS X 10.6.3
    • Mac OS X 10.7 DP3

    I won't suggest distros but I believe that you'll sort it out.
    You'll need EVOEnabler and ATY_Init, find them here And, you'll need to modify some kexts. Someone with the name ANARCHiNTOSH from InsanelyMac (Click to the Thread) has made a dummy Kext for that. Download the files from here.
    Now that you have everything follow these steps:

    Step 1: Install the Kext files.
    Copy EVOEnabler.kext and ATY_Init.kext to System/Library/Extensions. Then grab the kexts from ATIFix.. and put them in Extra/Extensions (E/E)


    Step 2: Fix permissions with pFIX
    Open Applications - Utilities - Terminal and put in this command:
    Code:
    sudo -s, (input Password: It won't show up of course)
    pfix, Enter, Choose your HD
    Your HD is usually Mounted on / unless you're running from another installation, it'll be shown with it's Hard Disk labeled.



    Let it do it's thing until it says 'Process Complete. You can reboot now'. DON'T DO IT! Still you've got other stuff to do.

    Step 3 - Edit com.apple.boot.plist
    Note: If you are stingy with editing stuff, (like me for example ) please skip this step and refer to step 4
    Go to Extra, copy com.apple.boot.plist to your desktop. Open it with TextEdit and add this flag:
    Code:
    <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    So it looks something like this:


    It doesn't HAVE to be identical. Just the GraphicsEnabler thing. You may have more or less flags than I do. Totally normal and O-K.

    Step 4 - Install Chameleon RC5
    I have Chameleon RC5 r970. (Download here), Open the installer, Continue-Continue-Continue-Agree then Customize: Choose Chameleon Standard, Options: GraphicsEnabler (Don't check if you have already done Step 3!!), Themes, UNCheck Extras.



    Once you've done that, you're OK. Press Install and reboot.



    Boot up with -v for checking on errors, it should blink once or twice then shows up with the QE/CI effects enabled. On System Profiler, it recognized my card as an ATI Radeon HD 4850 1GB on Snow Leopard, and an ATI Radeon HD 4600 on Lion.


    That's it for VGA. You're pretty much done.
    ------------

    If you have a DVI screen:

    Many people say that ATI Radeon HD 4350 works best with DVI. I don't have a DVI but it works on the following OS X versions:
    • Mac OS X 10.6.5
    • Mac OS X 10.6.6
    • Mac OS X 10.6.7



    To enable them, you'll have to follow the same steps for VGA, BUT, replace ATIFixv0+1 with this version: ATIFix2 AND instead of placing them in Extra/Extensions, put them in System/Library/Extensions along with the EVOEnabler and ATY_Init. Thanks again to ANARCHiNTOSH for the injectors

    If you have an HDMI

    Sorry, I can't help with HDMI because I've not run into it. I'll update once there's more research into it.
    -----------------
    If you have messed up

    You: Rebooted, but my mac is as good as dead: Black screens, Flickering, Kernel panics, take your pick.
    It's OK. There's always a way out. Pop in a Mac OS X Install Disk and boot with -v -s
    and foliow these steps

    -For VGA people
    Enter the following code:
    Code:
    sbin/mount -uw /
    cd /System/Library/Extensions
    mv ATY_Init.kext ATY_Init.old
    mv EVOEnabler.kext EVOEnabler.old
    cd /Extra/Extensions
    mv ATI*.kext ATI*.old
    chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
    chmod -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions
    chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions
    chmod -R 0:0 /Extra/Extensions
    reboot
    For DVI people
    Enter the following code:
    Code:
    sbin/mount -uw /
    cd /System/Library/Extensions
    mv ATY_Init.kext ATY_Init.old
    mv EVOEnabler.kext EVOEnabler.old
    mv ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext ATI4350.Fix.v2.old
    chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
    chmod -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions
    reboot
    Now that you've undone the procedure, it should be fine. Just remember to run pFIX once it boots.

    Have a nice Mac

    Default Didnt work

    I installed iAtkos s3 v2 on my HP Slimline s5380d: 2gb ram,core i3 530, ATI Radeon HD 4350. My monitor is 23" and im using dvi. I installed the qoopz 3.0 kernel as the default kernel did not work. then after i booted to my 10.6.2 installation, it did not boot so i had to boot to safe mode with the busratio=22 kernel flag then i updated to 10.6.7 combo update and i followed your steps but it didnt work. I was stuck at dyld_cache ....
    Maybe my iatkos installation was wrong? how did u install mac os x on your pc? btw i checked the PCI_EFI bootloader by netkas during installation. Thanks.

    Hello,

    Great guide. However when i reboot i loose signal to my monitor when load screens goes to desktop. I use a DVI connection. I have tried many other solutions, and your guide has gotten me the farthest to getting my 4350 to work.

    NOTE: I can boot into OS X from fresh install with vesa screen at 1024x768. Using OS X Ver. 10.6.7

    I tried all the steps exactly from word to word.... But I was unable to install the ATI Radeon HD4350 on my system.

    Recently my graphics card had gone for replacement and in the meantime was using the onboard graphics. Also I installed OS X Lion 10.7 through Mac App Store. It installed and is running all successfully.

    Now when I got my card replaced with a new one, I tested it on my OS X Lion by starting into verbose mode first with the card installed. The system booted all fine and reached my Lion desktop. After which I followed your steps but with no results.

    All I get is a mouse cursor on a grey screen and nothing more.... Please tell me where I might be going wrong... Any suggestions

    I made it to work on Snow Leopard 10.6.8 using the weirdest way.Im using a DVI Cable and ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphic card. I installed retail snow leopard on my pc using nawcom's swap disc and then updated it to 10.6.8.I followed this guide and i got a black screen after rebooting to snow leopard and my monitor went to sleep so i booted back to windows and installed transmac.I went to the mac partition and changed the extensions of the 3 kexts to .old.Restarted and booted using my nawcom swap disc and selected osx partition and it got stuck at "netkas presents smc emulator...". I rebooted the pc to mac normally and i got my 1920x1080 resolution with QE/CI effects. lol. Any idea on what is going on?
