Getting nvidea geforce gs 8600m 512 to work

I'm trying to follow this tutorial from osx86 wiki


Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS 512

-- Display requires driver installation and modification of info.plist to work at full resolution and with VGA-out. Mirror function still doesn't work properly, but forces main display to VGA-out.

Install Universal NVidia Driver (http://zack.phatoproductions.com/downloads/mac/NVidia-Universal-Installer.mpkg.rar)

Right Click /System/Library/Extensions/NVInject.kext choose "Show Package Contents"

Copy Info.plist to ~/Desktop

Open Info.plist copy with Plist Editor

Replace NVCAP string with 04000000 00000100 02000000 00000007 00000000

Save copy of info.plist and copy back to NVInject.kext contents

Change permissions of NVInject:

"sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject.kext"

"sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject.kext"

Run Disk Utility and repair permissions on disk.

Delete Extension Caches and Kernel Caches before rebooting

"sudo rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions/Caches/"

-- Reboot with -f just in case.


The only problem is when I go and open the file Info.Plist there isn't any NVCAP. Does anyone know the exact string of text I need to replace with the new one?
