    So I've successfully flashed my Rev G.1 ZWFC card. OS X picks it up just fine, and I installed the 10.6.2 framebuffer fix so that both of my displays work. However, QE/CI is not working, and I can't seem to find any drivers that are compatible.

    I've tried using Zeus' drivers, but that doesn't fix anything. I've deleted the Extensions.mkext just in case it needed to be rebuilt, and that didn't help either. I don't want to start randomly trying ATI driver, I figure someone may have a working driver file they can post here.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Some info:

    Mac Pro 1,1
    XFX 4870 1GB ZWFC Rev G1
    Mac OS X 10.6.4

    Thanks!

    how to update to 10.6.4:

    try it like this,from the top

    (re)Install 10.6.4
    Install 10.6.4 QECI from zeus

    no qeci/dualdisplay?
    then
    install http://groths.org/mapp.zip

    no qeci/dualdisplay?
    then
    install http://groths.org/dualdvi.zip

    When you get QECI, stop the instructions, you are done.

    Didn't even have to re-install OS X. Installed the first zip file, got QE/CI but lost Dual DVI. Then I applied the second zip file contents, and got dual screens with QE/CI.

    How will the OS X update path be affected? I know I'll have to reapply Zeus drivers after each update, but any other issues I should know about?

    You have done some great work man. Just from looking at past posts while trying to figure out my problem, you have been a tremendous help. Keep up the great work.

    only apple knows how future updates will affect

    the zeus QECI patch doesnt really help 4870, it just adds device id for 4890

    these zips are just combinations of 10.6.2 / 10.6.3 drivers
