I'm posting my attempt to have working USB 3.0 on 4540S laptop. It is experimental DSDT patch based on ideas, examples and explanation given by mieze. Please see original post here:
Our laptop is different from desktop...
HP no longer sells individual display components. That makes any upgrades difficult. I wanted to document some info for 4540S series and hopefully someone will post similar info for 4740S.

I came across kext made by Andy Vandijck that treats our internal video camera as an iSight.
Any Facetime or Skype users who can try it and report back if it's better than vanilla?
