    So I have my 6870 working, but of course Steam games won't work for it. Searched around the netkas site and found this

    http://netkas.org/?p=798

    Thing is it says "MacPro users – this will not work, for macpro bios of 6870 need to be embeded into Info.plist of aty_init." and I have not been able to find anything that tells me how to do that. I know how to get to the info.plist, but the instructions are really vague that I don't know what to do from there. Can somebody please help me out and let me know, or point me to something that tells me, precisely what I need to do to get Steam running on my machine?

    I've never used his injector before, is there any site I can go read about how to use it on your is it mainly a click-install from this bundle?

    instructions are in the readme

    basically you open Kext Helper, drop the kext, enter your password if you have one, and then Easy Install

    Awesome, thanks. I installed it, and am rebooting now. I have my fingers crossed.


    EDIT: Success!! Thanks a lot, man!

    Cindori, it looks like you are the most helpful and knowledgeable guy on this forum:) Steve Jobs should really pay you a few $$$ for improving his OS
    BTW, thanks for the trim enabler for my SSD:)

    Just wanted to double check. So I would get full performance out of this when it comes to playing starcraft correct? And are all the video outputs supported?
