Titan HCL and FAQ
Welcome to the Titan FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and HCL(Hardware Compatibility List)! Here, you will find out what Titan is, where to get it, and a current list of NVIDIA cards that work with it. Titan has an open source clone called Natit under development
 What is Titan?
- Titan is a registry key setter kext for the new 10.4.8 NVIDIA kexts. What does this mean? For the Apple NVIDIA kexts to work, several values must be set correctly to get vanilla[unauthorized] cards to work with it. This kext sets those values, allowing the user full QE/CI/OpenGL, as well as resolution switching and refresh rate changing.
 Current Features
- EDID hardcoding/auto-detection
- FBOffset hardcoding for people with Turbocache
- Chipset recognition; your card will show up correctly in System Profiler.
 Where can I get it?
- You can get Titan from http://omni.110mb.com/titan/?download,titan,Um0LaVBnAGMOZwYyVm9RMghkBjI= .
 How do I install Titan?
Titan requires the 10.4.8 iso (Not the 10.4.8 update) for successful installation. Titan does not work reliably on all Nvidia cards. If you don't want all these steps your can download an installer from here: (Working Link http://omni.110mb.com/titan/?download,titan,BDtVNldnDG0OZgAyBTVQOQ9mVWc=) http://www.mediafire.com/?2dtu4moqw2j.
1. Download Titan.zip from (Working Link http://omni.110mb.com/titan/?download,titan,BDtVNldnDG0OZgAyBTVQOQ9mVWc=)
2. Copy Titan.kext to /System/Library/Extensions and authenticate with your password
3. Open up Terminal and type the following:
- sudo -s (enter password)
- chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/Titan.kext
- chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/Titan.kext
5. From /System/Library/ delete Extensions.kextcache and Extensions.mkext
6. Restart the computer.
7. Enjoy CI/QE! or alternatively a black screen and some mv commands! . .

I followed spanakorizo's method without AGP part.
After 1st reboot MOUSE CURSOR WAS INVISIBLE. After 2nd reboot, MOUSE BECAME VISIBLE. So far works fine.
