hmmm not sure but after a few restarts it should go fine :) if u used mommud's kexts probably u should have no problems..and what is your configuration maybe u need a different smbios or edit org.chameleon.boot.plist coz i am using macbook pro 8,2 and probably your dsdt is having problems not sure but could be anything LOL

notes about mountain lion

 

i don't feel huge changes between it and lion

it is just two or three new programs new :P

and small changes on shape don't like them much :P

may it will be more better on future

 

for setup use this boot loader

http://www.osx86.net/view/2585-chameleon_2.1_r1924_-_mountain_lion_[updated].html

 

and replace my fix by this utility

http://www.osx86.net/view/2514-latest_kext_utility_10.8_ready.html

 

 

about the applehda you can use the 10.7.3 one till i patch new one as new one is more more so so complicated :(

 

 

sleep not work as we disable appleintelpowermanagment kext

 

the patched next cause panic so we will wait little :)

 

i prefer that is you want to setup mountain lion to setup it beside lion not on it :)

as lion is more stable

 

you may notice some artifact of mountain it is popular

 

enjoy testing ;)

finally successed to patch new applehda on mountaion lion DP3

 

there are many changes on new applehda

 

first binary patching there is changes that need to be found --> done

the new resources files is compressed to zlib need tot be uncompressed to edit the files like on lion then decompress them --> done

 

there is no layout6 on resources so moved work to layout2 that need dsdt editing --> done

 

now i got internal speaker to work it need some work but this easy

Hi Mohamed,

 

to make the switch display this video:

 

I noticed that the display cable that does freeze is black and gray is the new display.

need details about cable

 

is only cable replacement or with screen

also form where you got gray cable

also when you had gone to dell support what had you said to them

 

Changed throughout the screen. The only thing different is that I saw the handle of the new screen was gray. But do not open the screen to see the brand. I suggest that you contact Dell and ask to replace the LCD, but make a mark on the cable before to see if exchanged.

I got a Dell Vostro and I'm working on screen backlight. How do you manage to make it work ?

I think it can be a good way to investigate on it :)

Thanks !

I mean the screen brightness. How do you manage to make it work ?

I don't want to use your VoodooPS2Controller as the Vostro is not the same. But I want to know where do you find the "patch" for it, or if there is a way to patch the kext by myself.

first check if brightness works on system pref --> displays

 

then you can use the linked voodoops2controller will work for you :)

Go to system preferences=>keyboard=>keyboard shortcuts=>display and assign keys F4 and F5 for brightness control

like this

you did complete screen replacement why ? was it broken ?

 

for whom have freezes can try to see the color of cable and search on dell store for cable with gray cable and test :)

 

I did change the screen that could not solve the problem any other way. I replaced the processor, motherboard, but only was perfect when I changed the display.

No. But I believe that this can trigger the guarantee out of free.
