I got 173pcs 0809000 chips last week, date code 1211. Got 30pcs 0810005 date code 1049. It is getting harder and harder though :(

I did manage to find some 0005 chips but I bought the lot, and for a pretty penny too.

I thought you knew of a BIOS edit effort that was hapening. Still wondering how the hell anyone is going to get the 3000 chips to work navtively with no matching DEV_ID in the 7000Controller.kext info.plist though?.......

No splash-screen, fast fans, SMC issues (i think), kernel panics..............there is too much shit to fix. We gave up......

Even fixing the DEVID of the 3000 chip which will get boot screen it will not solve the sensor errors that the SMC will produce because it will not read any sensors related to GPU because of an unsupported DEVID. Without being able to fix the SMC firmware there is no way to get a 3000 chip to work at a hardware level. Then there is no software support for this DEVID, so this project is DOA.

It's the SMC that's fucked it. Hacking the OS to run this chip is easy.... SMC thermal sensors permanently curtails the 3000 chip from ever being used.

SEE sent me a email that they have NEW 0005 2017. Somebody ordered them?
I ordered some 2017 and got 1704 reballed shit.

I have some DC1125 I'm never going to use because my Honton station just fucked up and I'm not about to buy a new rework station!

Just had a message from supplier. Thay have 2017 chips. This is NOT china. This is the place I was buying good 1617 chips when no one else had them.
1651 for 9000 and 1716 / 1717 for 0005
I also have good 1125 chips left if anyone wants them?.... I'm not doing any GPUs at all anymore.

Anyone need the info?

216-0810001 date code 1222 PGT122.00 are new chips but not 0810001, so garbage. Just a heads up if they are offered to you.

Anyone in this thread able to fix an 820-2915 video chip issue board for me? I don't ever mess with these boards, and normally just unload them when I get them but I have a customer that really wants to get his fixed. I'm in the US. Ideally I would like to have this done by someone who's been doing a lot of these successfully. I'm extremely hesitant to get in the middle of this and even touch this computer but he's a customer I have to take care of. Thanks. -Jay
