For anyone interested, the solution for the ati v5250 video was a pack from finetuned
for 10.5.6 and the 'ATIinject.kext'(which isn't included in the 10.5.6 pack) from another one his packs, presumably from a different(older) version of osX but no matter because it all seems to work fine, 1680x1050 QE/CI fully supported.
I've gone ahead and put the necessary files all in one pack to simplify things but credit for this goes to finetuned
Install these with kext helper b7http://rapidshare.com/files/220046477/i ... s.zip.html
I downloaded and installed these kexts on my fresh 10.5.6 install (T60p 8743-cto)
They work fine - however i'm stuck at 1024x768 with no option for 1680x1050 (the native resolution of the lcd). Anyone know how to add a new resolution?
I just modifed com.apple.Boot.plist and added a kernel flag for 1680x1050x32... i'm close - it's now able to get to 1400x1050x32... Also, i get some artifacts on the screen once in awhile. Very strange. (i had this all working with 10.5.4)
EDIT: OK - i have it working. The package I downloaded did not have ATIinject or ATIDRV. I grabbed these from fintune's older post and installed them and now i'm at 1680x1050x32 with no mouse tearing with QI/QE etc.... all is good
