    [SUCCESS] Lenovo IdeaPad u460

    Hey Buddy, did you manage to fix Brightness and Sleep? I'm looking for a cheap and alternative to hit the road. Thanks
  2. What I can add to this subject for now that is adding @3,built-in from config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary gives me a blank screen, while adding it on the DSDT gives me a scrambled screen: So I guess I should abandon the injection through Clover's config.plist and concentrate on the DSDT patching

    Strange Internal Monitor behaviour

    As discussed in IRC, for those with the same laptop and with the same problem, a work around is: Boot with nv_disable=1 Openn terminal and do: sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel sudo kextcache -system-caches Then reboot with nvda_drv=1 I'm not sure what causes it, but this seems to fix it until the next kernel cache update for me
  4. Hello hackintoshers, This setup uses: nVidia web drivers 346.03.04f02 El Capitan 10.11.2, public release I've been trying with no success to some kind of brightness control, first I tried DSDT Injection, but I learnt from RehabMan about config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary injection and have been using it since. This is how the display appears in IORegistryExplorer: Full ioreg export: discipline’s iMac.ioreg.zip And in System Information: Here is my CLOVER directory with DSDT dump: CLOVER.zip In there, you will find: CLOVER/ACPI/original_dsl the original DSDT uncompiled CLOVER/ACPI/patched_dsl the source of the patches My display is detected under index 3, so I have tried injecting through config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary: @3,backlight-control with 01000000 : results in black/blank screen @3,pwm-info with 02180064 90590200 08520000 a51c0000 00040000 01000000 : results in black/blank screen @3,AAPL,boot-display with 01 : results in black/blank screen I also tried the FixEDID program from https://github.com/andyvand/FixEDID_Devel, loaded my EDID ( SDC434B.BIN.zip ) there selected AppleBacklightDisplay on both drop down menus, and used the generated EDID file to be injected by Clover (by converting it to HEX first), and without using the above changes to config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary the display boots normally with no change: Note that in my DSDT's I have two _BCM methods, which none of them work, as I tried to use RehabMan's ioio to call them, they have if conditions that fail, and I even tried removing the if conditions from the code and compiling it, but I run the code and no brightness change. Since I am a newbie, I'm shooting in the dark, so my questions are: My device is found under \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP would it make any sense to rename it to \_SB.PCI0.GFX0? (there is already the disabled by manufacturer GFX0 in the DSDT dump, but I would first rename this one to IGPU, or something else...) Is my display present in the DSDT? Sorry, I don't know how to find it. Would it make any sense to download the source of IOGraphicsFamily from http://www.opensource.apple.com/source/IOGraphics/and change the code to eliminate AppleDisplay and/or always accept AppleBackLight display? I boot with kext-dev-mode=1 but would there be anything stopping me from doing it? If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    Introduce yourself.

    Hello, I'm discipline and I came here to search for the sourcecode of the VoodooWireless driver, together with net80211 drivers which supported airport. These are rich educational material and I hope someone ends up sharing it. Thanks
