Default Application to switch between old and new GMA kext - 04-08-2009, 11:25 AM


I would like to develop an easy applescript application to make easier the switch between old/new GMA kext in order to enable the mirror function.

My idea is to put in Extra folder 2 versions of Extensions.mkext:
- One with the new driver AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext which makes the mirror function buggy
- A second one with the old driver which makes the mirror function works but adding artefacts.

Depending on wihch one is enabled, the application will propose to activate the other one. It could a simple message box with one button (like "enable" or "disable" according the current enabled Extensions.mkext.

Before starting to code, I would like to know if this video kext issue is only solved by the AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext in Extra or does DellEFI application patch another kext in System/Library/Extensions? If it is the case, my solution won't be succesful....

Thnaks for the feedback.
