First of all i am not a system programmer.. Its just a pure tweak.. :P :P

Many of users reporting mouse artifact for their compaq and lenovo laptop's having Intel 4500 MHD (Dev ID 2a42).
As shown in the below picture.

I have hexedited the AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext (Version 1.5.48) using Lavender.t's post to make use of software cursor instead of a hardware cursor. You can see the result

u should only install this kext if u having 4500MHD (2a42) and also with an mouse artifact. It will not enable QE/CI for your mac.

Steps to install

1.Download kexthelper.
2.Download the Edited Kext Attached File  AppleIntelGMAX3100FB_softcursor_sleep.kext.zip   60.98KB   10584 downloads
3.Extract It.
4.Drag the kext to kext helper> Type the admin password> and click easy install
5.Reboot with bootflags '-f -v'

Thankz to Lavender.t :)

Thank you so much, it worked for me :unsure:
I notice you have not taken screenshots, is this broken for you as well? I am not able to take screenshots either on my computer and it is also X4500.

Worked like a charm on my Dell latitude e5400! I have an unrelated problem now. It seems whenever I use these kexts to fix native resolution (any of the tricks, patch4500, mr. vaughn's, this edited one) it will not load with a background, just a blue background. I have everything else though. any ideas?

It didn't work on my inspiron 1545. I'm running IPC 10.5.8 universal final. When I boot with bootflags -f -v, I got a kernel panic and when I boot without flag I got a black screen after the apple logo. I'm new on mac. Do I have to install another distro? Please advise. Thanks.

I also have a dell 1545 running IPC 10.5.8 universal final. I put this file (Attached File  dsdt.aml.zip   9.02KB   0 downloads) into the root of the macintosh drive it fixed the black screen problem.

note: you need to extract the file out the .zip archive first.

In the attach you'll have these files.

AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext (1.5.44.13)
AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext (1.5.18.7)

The FB was patched to have no mouse artifacts & support native resolution & with id 2E12.

Both files will load and will appear in the Extensions at System Profiler.

I'm hoping that someone figure it out how to enable QE/CI.


Greets!

For Native resolution u need only AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext only. The other kext is needed only if u have a QE/CI. as QE/CI is not working now, FB kext will give native resolution

Yes I know, indeed
At me now, certainly native resolution (1366x768)...
QE\CI With any kext will not earn, yet надут other decision.
The way of inclusion QE by means of OSx86Tools on card GMA 4500MHD is fake.

and is there any chance to get QE/CI sooner or later? what do you think?


thanks bye!

Aun no existe una solución concreta para el INSPIRON 1545? he intentado con casi todos los kext que he encontrado en el foro y siempre falla la pantalla quedando en negro. Por favor alguien que tenga el modelo que me ayude.


Although there is no concrete solution for the Inspiron 1545? I have tried almost every kext that I found on the forum and always fails, the screen goes black :wacko: . Please someone with the model to help me.
