Thank you for reminding me of this. I'd been using the Kext Updater app and haven't been reading any kext update notes lately. The 2 most recent version of Whatevergreen broke my ACPIBrightness and Brightness by Bergdesign because of the included AppleBacklightFixup.Hi
I have implemented successfully backlight control using AppleBacklightFixup.kext and SSDT-PNLF.aml as per this guide.
According to the changelog in WhateverGreen (from version 1.2.5 onwards) the AppleBacklightFixup code has been added to WhateverGreen directly, so should we upgrate to latest WhateverGreen and delete AppleBacklightFixup.kext? Any other changes needed?
There are some laptop's brightness control will only work with ACPIBrightness and Brightness by Bergdesign. My MSi GE60 is 1 of them. My Lenovo and MSi GL62m works doesn't have this issue.
Whatevergreen 1.2.5 and 1.2.6 broke mine until I reverted back to 1.2.4.
Actually, in 1.2.6, you can add "applbkl=0" boot argument to disable AppleBacklight patching code. Let me try...
update..nope, adding that boot argument didn't work.
