Which problem does flashing the ROM fix, exactly? Does it now work at all resolutions in 10.1.2 and below, or does it now work in versions above 10.1.2? Or both?

Whichever it is: good job, Parappa.

Excuse my poor English, it ain't my mothertongue.

But flashing the ROM solves the problem that a-non-flashed card doesn't display any higher than 1024*768 in X versions above 10.0.2

So with a flashed ROM it does display all the resolutions and works properly up to 10.2.

Off brands...

I failed to get a $39 "off-brand" (unnamed by vendor) GeForce2MX card to boot properly in OS9 to be able to flash it. With the card in, display was full of lines and boot would hang midway through. Even using a second PCI driven monitor as the primary montior, it wouldn't boot or display off the cheap GeForce. One of the comments above listed a URL for a chart comparing success of various cards. The top mentions that the RAM on low-end cards often isn't fast enough to work in the Mac... I'm going to try again with an Asus card. Curious if others have had similar experiences with rock bottom priced cards that are "off brand"
