      The newer developments are simpler, easier, faster and more complete.
      But they are buried in this thread. Please update the first post to guide newbies and search engine arrivals to a couple of the other solutions and amendments.
      Thx.

        Sorry for the late reply, dear friend. I fully understand these problems and actually wanted to update a forum post for a long time already, but sadly I don't have the free time to completely update this forum post (good quality rewrite update I mean)...

        But there is a possible solution - if you send me a private message with a good compilation of links to the most helpful (by your opinion) forum posts of this thread, with some description, I could include this compilation to my forum post - of course mentioning you as the author of this compilation ;)

      But your solution/guide is not the only one and there are now other guides/solutions working just as good. If not better. Your solution has now to be viewed as a truly historic achievement but also by now as incomplete and error prone (the last mostly on the user side).

      The thread is getting quite out of hand with newbies signing up to just ask questions that prove first and foremost that they didn't read the whole thread or can't google within it.
      It is currently rude IMHO to tell them all "go and educate yourself", since most of them are quite nervous and and might be understandably in a dire situation.

      Additional info: When I tried to turn my Mac back on, it went to gray screen and the apple logo and a bar. Then it went to black and started over again and never came fully back on. They tell me I have to get a new board. Then I saw your post.

      Hi. I read your post on how you forced your 2011 Macbook Pro with failed AMD and GPU to always use Intel integrated GPU. I was watching a video when the screen went black. I forced shut down my Mac and then tried to turn it back on. My question is, if I pay to send it to you and pay the return, how much would you charge me to fix mine? Thank you in advance for your time to read this message.

        Sorry, dear friend, it is currently impossible for me to do such repairs, but I really hope that all the information from this thread (as well as help from other MacRumors members there) will help you to repair it by yourself :) And it will be really great if you learn how to do this fix by yourself (for free!), because if this solution will "break" you will be able to quickly fix it without having to send it again
