CLOVER.zip has current clover dir in it
diag-2.zip has output and ioreg (VN7-791G-2 file.

Did I missed something?

The ioreg is not from IORegistryExplorer v2.1.

Will check, but as I am using IoJones so I have to fire IOReg separately and do pay attention.

You are right (as always) seems like it updated itself to v3+
Find v2.1 attached. My apologies!

By the way - bad news:
Realtek RTS5129 DevID 0129 VendorID 3034 (USB2.0-CRW) is not supported by drivers. I ran across several threads and seems non was able to bring life to it.

I also came across some info, that according to apple comments in original Realtek driver (dated year 2011) there are some of them with bugs in firmware (what the heck?!) and it could be due to that. Driver simply rejects device but could be configured to bypass this protection for sake of the owner. I will go with original Driver and if succeed - will post here.

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/to...ple-optimized-legacy-driver-1065106610671068/

P.S. My guess is that card reader sleeps if nothing is plugged in it (windows does not detect it). So inability to make it fly may be related to some power management...

not injecting device-id=0x0412.
Done!
Please check attached IOReg data and my current CLOVER config.plist

Please confirm that it's all that could be done for mobil HD4600 (device 416 as 412 is a desktop version).
I do have random glitches (like lines of black\white running across fast changing picture) but I can hold it if that is the best result. My understanding is that GUI is trying to lay several images one after another and like old CRT graphics is not fast enough to display it as a smooth series and just skip frames resulting in glitches...

So for now I am dealing with Power Management and BritnessControllFix.

I figured out that needed part is located in SSDT-6 and am applying patch Britness Fix (Haswell/Broadwell). MaciASL finds some part to be patched, but after that I got compilation errors: lines 198,339,362; code 6126; message: syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_INTEGER

Could you please advise?
Attached are original and patched files

Your config.plist is corrupt (assuming you're using config_HD4500_kaim-sm.plist as config.plist).

The backlight guide recommends "Brightness Fix" + IntelBacklight.kext.
But you're getting ahead of yourself. You cannot implement backlight control when you don't have graphics properly implemented.
