NVIDIA Drivers 10.10.5 Security Update 2015 - 004 FIX

I got a black screen after installing the 'Security Update 2015 - 004' for Yosemite 10.10.5, even though I updated to the latest NVIDIA driver (346.02.03f02) I still had the black screen with my 780 Ti.
NVDAStartup.kext had the right Build Number too:

<key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>14F1021</string>

It seemed like others had the same problem.
So I tried the solution I used when I had the same problem on earlier Yosemite updates and it fixed it.

Open:

/System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist

Scroll down to:

<key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key>
<string>Config1</string>
<key>Mac-FA842E06C61E91C5</key>
<string>Config2</string>

Change to:

<key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key>
<string>none</string>
<key>Mac-FA842E06C61E91C5</key>
<string>none</string>

Run KextUtility.


Just thought I'd put it out there for people to try who still has problems and can't find a solution.

If you use sudo nano you don't have to repair permissions.
