I believe 27AE is commented. Anyway I'll be including a patcher. The 
framebuffer for 27AE has to be patched

Yes...
The card ID needs to be change in the framebuffer kext.
The card ID also needs to be changed in the Info.plist.
That in combination with the new graphicsenabler for GMA should 
work.
(27A2 -> 27AE...)

Got it , @Andy 

I'll bei ncluding a 27ae.sh script. Maybe we should bundle it 
together with the branch. It would easier unless you have another 
suggestion up your mind

I've done fixing of both the IOFramebuffer as well as the 
IOAccelerator.
I currently have the same card (0x27AE8086).
This package will give you resolution support as well as Core Image, 
Quartz Extreme and OpenGL...
You need Mac OS X 10.6.2 for this...
Follow the "howto install" file...

works great ;)

@ Prasys:
It's not enough to just change the ID in the plist.
The byte in the binary also needs patching.
This should work for most cards as long as a compatible ID is 
patched.
Like 0x25828086 -> 0x25928086
In binary (very simple to create a patcher using a character 
pointer):
86808225 -> 86809225

For 27AE it comes from 27A2 etc...
So it should read the binary to memory, look for those id's which 
resemble the current card most (check for device id, select most 
compatible one), and replace each instance of the id, write file 
back from memory as last point.
This needs to be done for AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer as well as 
AppleIntelGMA950.
Rest of the depending plugins = OK...

I've added the gma enabler code to trunk (revision 1140).  Do note 
that for non apple dev ids, a binary patch is still required.
Status: Fixed
