10.6.3 & flashed cards

10.6.3 & flashed cards
March 29, 2010 Oskar

The new OSX update 10.6.3 breaks many functions for flashed cards. The normal one is the 3D (QECI), which is known to have to be patched every update. Netkas is already working on that and I will update zeus with his patch once it’s ready.

But it also breaks dual screens. the 2nd port will give black signal. to quote netkas:

new framebuffer has same problem as leopard’s – inability to work without dvi2vga dongle in second port, to fix it – use 10.6.2 framebuffer

using the old framebuffer is a pretty easy fix though. I will include it in the Zeus update with a single 1-button-click, but until then you can patch manually. I prepared a fix package:

dual dvi fix

Unzip, open kexthelper
Drag all the kext files to kexthelper
Enter password, press Easy Install

reboot and done.
