      Hi Cindori !

      Do you have plans for including ATI HD 5870 in Zeus ?

      Kindly Regards


    2. Cindori 9 years ago

      it’s not so easy process, zeus is using binary flasher leaked from apple, to add 5000 support would need another leak, say a graphics firmware support pkg from apple

    3. walterav 9 years ago

      What about PC HD2600XT can it be flashed easily with Mac version?

    4. Cindori 9 years ago

      it should be flashable, but easily, i have no idea

      Hello Cindori,

      i have a flashed 4890 ( on a 10.6.4 OS) and would like to Know if it
      would do me any good to update zeus? Are there any new drivers and does it improve the Performance like the New graphics update from Apple?



    6. Cindori 9 years ago

      updating zeus will not improve your graphics, but it will give you new features as QECI Patching the Graphics Update from Apple

    10. vlad 9 years ago

      found it! it’s in /Library/Application Support/Zeus !

    11. Cindori 9 years ago

      yeah, a line code is wrong in zeus, i’ve fixed it now, redownload

    12. vlad 9 years ago

      now it’s: Can’t set <> “nvidia” of <> “tab” of window “main” to false. (-10006)

    13. vlad 9 years ago

      now it’s: Can’t set “class taVI” “nvidia” of “class tabV” “tab” of window “main” to false. (-10006)

    14. Cindori 9 years ago

      another set of typos corrected, try again

      Hi Oskar,

      Great blog & tool, as of yet not had a chance to use it but I hope you can help me out….

      I purchased a XFX 4870 ZWFL VG.1 I have powered it via the spare molex in the optical drive compartment and fan fires up fine.

      When the Mac is booting it freezes and ask me to restart. (You know the message you get in the middle of the screen in different languages)

      And that is where I am stuck, have you any ideas or has anyone else had the same problem??

      System spec is:

      Mac Pro 3.1 8-Core 2.8Ghz
      12GB Ram (All are paired 2GB crucial memory modules)
      ATI Radeon HD 2600 256MB (Default one)

      If you need any more info please let me know.

      Help would much appreciated. 🙂

      some cards give KP in osx, go bootcd method, i have that for guide in a recent post in the golden guide thread

    23. Arndt 9 years ago

      Mhh after stupid me installed that gfx update I can´t get Quartz running on my 4890. Even after selecting the imho proper point 10.6.4 + grafix update the downloaded driver fails to enable quartz. Any ideas yet?

    24. Arndt 9 years ago

      okok – finally.. after rebooting one more time I finally got my Quartz back, nevermind – you did a great job with this tool!

    25. jcob 9 years ago

      got an error (about some library files missing) the first time i tried the download the QE for the graphics update. the second time worked just fine. quartz; installed and workin.
      nice job.-

    26. AXL 9 years ago

      hi cindori,

      first, its a great tool you made.

      I have a MAC PRO 1.1. Can i flash any PC nvidia 8800 GT Card to use with your tool to work in my MAC?

      Thanks a lot and have a nice day
      AXL from germany

    27. Cindori 9 years ago

      thanks for all comments.

      AXL, nvidia flasher needs nvidia drivers, and drivers wont attach to a card that is not initialized

      short: the card needs to have mac rom already, or being run by injector, for flashing to work

    28. Flu 9 years ago

      First off thank you Cindori for providing all this information on how to flash a graphics card, I just got a 4870 ZWFC g.1 working like a dream in my Mac Pro 1.1

      Question: Any updates on whether or not to install the Apple 10.6.4 Graphics update? I’ve tried to search for answers but haven’t come up with anything.



    29. Cindori 9 years ago

      people that have installed that update have lost QE and had to replace with older kexts again, so I see no reason to install it.

      gonna try to hack roms to fix this issue with having-to-revert-to-older-framebuffers since 10.6.4, but right now starting school and will not happen soon.

    30. Mike 9 years ago

      I fall into the category that you mention in post 29 Cindori. I was good to go thanks to you. I naively applied the SL Graphics Update and broke QE. Are you able to point me to a place that talks about replacing current kexts with older ones and where to get them?


    31. Cindori 9 years ago

      note that 4890 is supposed to lose qeci with that, the patch is in zeus
      if you got 4870, or 4890 and the patch doesnt work, check the macrumors threads

    32. @robase 9 years ago


      Is there a possibility to flash a ATI 4850 card ?

      Actually I’m injecting my PC rom with my bootloader

      Thanks for your good work


    33. Cindori 9 years ago

      flashing does not make a difference on hackintosh

    34. BMonroe 9 years ago

      I have a Macbook Air and thought about overclocking the nVidia 9400 onboard. When I ask Zeus to display the current clocks, I get -2147483.750 MHz. I doubt my card is running in negative speeds, and I am afraid to overclock until I can figure out why it’s reporting them so oddly. Any thoughts? I have a mid ’09 MBA with 2.13GHz and the 9400m.

    35. ikari 9 years ago

      Hi, i have a Ati 4890 flashed card and have just finished updating my system with all latest updates including the apple graphics update. Have just run the QECI Exotic patch and restarted. However Zeus still says that the Quartz driver isn’t installed? Any ideas what’s going wrong? It was all fine before i updated.

    36. ikari 9 years ago

      *UPDATE* Just found your “mapp.zip” file on the macrumours forums and ran the “Kext Helper b7.app” with all the files. Restarted and now everything works fine as before!! Thanks heaps!!
      Here’s the link to it for others. May not work for others but it worked for me.

    37. ikari 9 years ago

      Another update. Have seen no improvement with Steam games using the updates. I still have to use the lower settings and still have frame lag at times. So it doesn’t seem as if much hardware acceleration is happening for me.

    38. ikari 9 years ago

      I have found a solution for me!! Going back to the OSX 10.6.2 Ati extensions has worked for me. These are the 1.6.6 kexts. After installing these i can max out Steam game settings and still get over 100fps. Finder feels better too and it has got rid of the slight tearing i was having too.

    39. DrMechxico 9 years ago

      Noob Question:

      If I flash a 4890 card, will I get the GPU Acceleration in the apps that use it?
      Also, what is the best card to flash at the moment?

    40. smurfk1 9 years ago

      I just flashed an ATI Radeon HD 4870. Everything on the Windows side works great, but in OS X, video playback is horrible. I noticed in Zeus that Quartz Driver is not installed. I downloaded and installed all the driver updates from Zeus, but still no luck. Running 10.6.4 plus several reboots. Ideas?


    41. Cindori 9 years ago

      Mapp.zip and dualdvi.zip, search

    42. digiboy 9 years ago

      I looked before I leaped and just purchased a new Sapphire HD 5770 card that I can hopefully install into my MacPro 1,1. I currently have a 1900 card that I have to use a fan acceleration utility with in order to avoid freezing up my system.

      I’ve just started reading up on flashing cards and read about the recent success flashing a 5770 on the netkas forum. So yes, it can be done, but now I need to educate myself on how to get there. Obviously, I’d love to use Zeus to accomplish this, would I be able to use a netkas rom in this situation? Should I wait for an update, or should I go through the hassle of setting up an XP boot camp drive?

      I would appreciate any kind advice you can offer…

    45. Aitor 9 years ago

      What about a Quadro FX4500 with this tool? can I add firmware EFI with an OEM FX4500 EFI firm?

    46. Thomas 9 years ago

      Should we update to 10.6.5? Its a graphic update in that one.
