    Default Need help getting 4890 to work. (OK Got 4890 to recognize, but no QE)

    Hello guys,

    Here's my setup : EP45 UD3R, Snow Leopard (10.6.2), XFX Radeon HD4890(Running the default BIOS).

    So far I have tried the exotic patchers by netkas and all I get is a garbled screen, I even tried placing a custom ROM but to no avail. All I really wish for is to run my resolution at 1680 x 1050(Which is my monitor's default res.), does anyone have any idea? When I try to force the resolution via com.apple.Boot.plist, it reverts to 1400 x 1050 for some odd reason.

    Default

    I got my 4890 to fully recognize along with the correct display res., now the problem is that QE is not working. I have netkas's exotic patch for 10.6.2 installed.

    In the above post a user states what kexts were used to enable support for the card. He also has a screenshot displaying a translucent menubar, proving ci/qe functionality.
