should i insert only the numeric part between <string> and </string>??

Yes, or open the boot.plist with text editor, and edit the lines.

Did you install the Enoch package as recommended?

You can also copy the boot file from your USB to your HDD.

Now I'm stuck, I think because I can not make the recognition that the HD4000, I'm trying to insert several strings in the file org.chameleon.boot.plist
but so far nothing, I can only enter the system in Safe Mode and using bootloader from the usb. The same safe mode does not work if launched with the bootloader installed, only usb.
This makes me worry and think that maybe the card is not the only problem.

With this injection string: 5e0000000100000001000000520000000100000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000003006601

When finished i'll write a step by step guide.

Now I need battery, hwmonitor, wifi and audio

Battery attached, backup the original files. I can not guaranty that these kexts will work, with a backup you can rollback. And gone now :)
Edit: If the Wifi is Intel, forget about it btw. Will not work.

I must install both or only applesmartbattery...?

Wifi is Atheros!

Another thing I noticed is that the monitor light is at middle by default, i don't know how to "pump up" the light!

Install both. Mountain Lion ready. Works on 10.8.2 also.
Atheros what? Can you be a bit more specific? Model name etc...?
Same for Audio.

Brightness can be adjusted under System Settings > Display. If that does not work, it's time to create a DSDT and fix it. (If you do not have one already.)

Watch this video, on how to extract a DSDT from windows, and upload it, or give it a shot yourself to patch it, use DSDT Editor.

GoodMorning! I'm ready to fight against my laptop! :D

At the moment don't work:
- brightness control
- stop, sleep, wake up
- atheros wifi (i don't know the right model, i can't find it on the web, i'll try various atheros kext!)
- audio (not really a problem, i'll work with an external usb audio card)

About DSDT, I haven't a DSDT, and I havent windows installed on this laptop. I have Chameleon Wizard, maybe can I extract the DSDT by it?
If DSDT is the only way to get brightness and sleep works, I definitely need help to compile DSDT.

Perhaps the best way to go is to use a Linux live usb. You can extract the DSDT from there.
Also the other hardware information can be found there, did a quick search on how to find hardware info in ubuntu. http://www.webupd8.o...rmation-in.html
Just one of the many ways to find them.

I'll be back this evening, 6 hour train ride today -_-

I can try with linux but are you sure that Chameleon Wizard can't do the work? In its DSDT section there's an option to "extract" that results in two files.

Chameleon can do this, but it will only extract the information that OSX has found/detected/injected, Linux and Windows can get the DSDT from the BIOS.
