Default Brightness on screen indicator not working - 11-11-2009, 12:10 PM

Hi all, installed OSX, bootloader rc3, however my brightness indicator on screen does not show up. The brightness keys f4, f5 do work, i would like to get the brightness control to show up on the desktop. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks a bunch!

You are going to have to do one (or both) of two things
1) DSDT patch (required)
2) add / write / modify a kext.

As far as I know, nobody has tried with the Mini 9 / 10v.

Any updates on this? I'd like to get the on-screen brightness setting to show up as well.
