Not sure what you propose extracting from it.

I think I've perhaps got confused when you said that PBI will no longer have the latest kexts, so I thought I'd need to extract them from any latest build.

No idea what you mean by that. What do you mean by 'latest build'?

Short update regarding Brightness control. I have been able to dim the screen by using a free app from the app store called Brightness Slider which is meant to be used on desktop Macs I believe. Maybe the laptop screen seems to be treated as a external monitor. Still not the perfect solution but its better than having to wear sunglasses.

Too bad it doesn't really control the backlight at all.

Yup. It is not real backlight control. It creates a semi-transparent window over the whole screen such that alpha blending is used to change the colors.

It is definitely not real brightness control...

I want to thank the community - I have a 99% functional el cap running on my 9470m!

I have one little issue with undocking from the docking station. It seems that the built-in screen doesn't like to switch back and forth between monitors in a gracefull way. IE: when docked it works fine, when I undock, I just have a grey screen. If I re-dock it works fine on the external monitor. If I undock and reboot, I have no problems working on the built-in display.

I can live with this I guess, but it would obviously be preferable to be able to switch between the built-in and the dock displays.

TIA!

Docks are in rare use. Maybe someone else with a dock will reply...
