Hi, After a successful installation of 10.10.5 on my x99 system there are still things to fix on post.
I would appreciate every one's help and contribution to solve these problems.
Needing to be fixed:
Sleep/Wake (It doesn't sleep properly and doesn't wake up through mouse touch or keyboard)
ThunderboltEX II isn't recognized being the great mystery of this build (devices are always plugged before booting, Bios Security ID is set to Legacy, the card is installed on Pcie x4_1 and recognized in Windows) AppleThunderboltNHI.kext was removed for faster booting
Speedstep not accomplished
Nvidia Driver - I can't select it at system preferences. OSX default driver assumes control. One of my software's displays the message "NO CUDA ACCELERATION HARDWARE DETECTED".
My hackintosh is currently running 10.6.8 on an HP 4530s, and I experience an issue where I can't fine tune the screen brightness after I first turn it on. In order to control screen brightness properly I need to sleep the display first, then wake it back on, and finally I can fine tune the brightness. I grew tired of needing to do that everytime I booted so I decided to find a work-around. Once I figured out a reliable method I went ahead and packaged it up for anyone who might also benefit from it!
In no way do I guarantee this will work for everyone, but give it a shot if you have the brightness bug. The patch makes no permanent changes and does not require elevated access to install. It's all local to the user and does not make any system changes. It has a provided uninstaller just in case things go awry!
The README in the .zip contains all information about the files that will be installed and what they do. The patch is a collective of two open source applications to control the screen and brightness via command line, and some bash scripting by me. It requires the Terminal to install for now... I don't know a thing about making a GUI Installer but if anyone can provide any tips, I would be greatful!
Download the zip, use Terminal to install by navigating to the file and typing "./install.sh", then log out or reboot to enable the patch.
