    Thanks for the update and your continued work on this solution. Every time there is an os update I check out your page. Do I install the qeci first and then the os update or the os update and then the qeci update? Thanks!

    First OSX update, then qeci patch

    I tried to donate a little money but the Paypal system only re-direct me to set up a new Pay-Pal account even though they mention i can pay directly with a VISA card.
    I already have an old PP account (without any money on it) and don’t want to first transfer money to that account and then a new transfer from PP to you.
    I think you probably would get more donations if we could just pay with a credit card.
    Cheers / J

    You can donate by credit card directly if you have a Paypal account connected to it.

    I recently flashed my first card a few months ago. Thank you for developing Zeus.

    After this recent update to 10.6.7, I’m experiencing extreme mouse jerkiness/lag. Running snow leopard on a HIS Sapphire 4890 HD card in a mac pro 2,1. Can provide more details if necessary.

    I’m considering adding EFI to the firmware, but don’t want to brick my card. I’ve been looking for instructions both here & at macrumors, but can’t seem to find exact directions for how to add EFI to the firmware. I’m not even sure if this will fix anything. If such directions exist I’ll be more than happy to read them instead of wasting your time.

    What do you recommend?

    If you flashed, you obviously flashed with a EFI firmware. So thats done.

    Install QECI patch from zeus, check if it helps, else install keita patches from macrumors.

    Ok, I just reinstalled the 10.6.6 QECI update from Zeus (netkas version?), then I installed keita’s patch for the 4870’s over that. My mouse is smooth again!

    However, only one of my monitors is currently working. I probably should have mentioned I have a dual dvi setup. Going to install the 10.6.7 patch now. If that doesn’t work, will your dualdvi.zip work or is it too outdated?

    Thanks for your help!

    It didn’t work.

    After installing the 10.6.7 patch from Zeus I restarted. Apple logo came up on one display (23″), then the ticking grey wheel underneath. Secondary 20″ was blank. After ~30 seconds I guess the new drivers kicked in and the secondary display lit up. Both displays turned blue like they do right before the log on screen comes up. However, instead of changing to the log on screen, they just stayed blue. After about 30 seconds they changed to a lighter color blue, then flipped back.

    They currently just flip back & forth between dark and light shades of blue.

    Not sure what to do next. I’m able to boot from snow leopard CD with full graphics and using another computer to write this. Do you know how I could install different drivers to my startup drive from a the boot cd menu? I have an 1900xt that I’m considering swapping in so I can edit my startup drive using.

    Your thoughts?

    Reverted to 10.6.6.

    Anyone reading this, be careful using keita patches on a HIS 4890 HD unless you know what your doing (I didn’t). Hopefully a working patch will turn up sooner or later.

    Thanks for the feedback anyways.
