Hey Guys,

need some help with editing the Motmot Personality under Mountain Lion. I've successfully managed it to get my dual monitor setup working on 10.7. But to edit the ATI4800Controller.kext on 10.8 i need the address of the Motmot Connector Table. The script i've normally used to get that address(ati-personality.pl) doesn't seem to work anymore on 10.8 due to the change in naming the Binary inside the kext( it changed from ATI4800Controller to AMD4800Controller).

Is there some skilled Perl Developer out there who can edit the file to fit the new naming standard?
Or if not is there someone who could provide me with the output of this script under lion? So that i can simply hex search for the connector info and get the address by this. i can't do this because i don't have the original ATI4800Controller.kexts for Lion anymore.

Thanks in Advance maltba

One thing you should keep in mind when editing the Mountain Lion kexts is that they are all now only 64-bit.
So before the personalities would be there twice, once for x86 and once for x64, now there is only one for x64.

Can you have a detail step-by-step on how you did this in lion?
What version of lion did you do it on?
