Rehab, u are a genius!! The one thing that kept bugging me was always the brightness change waking from sleep. It goes bright after sleep. I read this thread and applied the fix and loaded the patched backlight kext, and wouldn't you know it stays where I leave it..bravo man:clap: Question what is the difference with the backlightinjector kext?
No difference between using patched AppleBacklight.kext or building a AppleBacklightInjector.kext, except the injector will survive an Apple update to AppleBacklight.kext.

Did you install blinkscreen? If you did and later used one of the new techniques for brightness, then remove it as it is not necessary.

No have not. I don't know even what that is. I've looked at some threads but still can't figure what it is and the purpose. Is it for folks that having the issue I described. Do I need it?

If you haven't installed it then it does not concern you. Why are you asking about it?

Because I do have the screen blink when going from bootloader to apple logo to menu log-in. thought maybe there is a fix.

Very slight blink. Artifact of the way this solution works.

Hi Rehab, just want to reply to say thanks for this topic and the recommendation of ACPIBacklight.kext

I tried the method in this topic without luck but ACPIBacklight.kext did restore full brightness for my laptop (Samsung with HD3000)

Thanks for your work man

Both techniques work, but ACPIBacklight is easier and better. Glad it worked for you...

Hello,
i've tried your guide with the AppleBacklightInjector.kext but after the bootlogo the screen stays black. I patched the DSDT and the Terminal showed me this: Patched AppleBacklight.kext for DisplayID: F10T1600
Can you help me?
