        Glad to ear that... it is working well?
        I'm using one of the restored 15' 2011 MBP for Final cut editing.
        Not the fastest machine in the word, but it does the job flawless.
        The other one, I'm using it for video VTR in live events.
        Buying a Blackmagic design device, I'm able to playout video thru thunderbolt

        You can do the softwares, security and system updates without any problem.
        Even upgrade up to Sierra if you are in El capitan or Yosemite.
        If you want to go to High sierra (OS which in my opinion sucks) , you need and extra mod

      Hi JMVB, in your opinion, which is the best solution to get back alive a 17' early 2011 MBP with bad dGPU? Tanks

        EFI variable fix and remove the R8911

        So "bash roxy" does not request any wiring on logic for backlight issue in HighSierra or Mojave? Tanks!

        I don't know. I usually stay away from the newest OS.
        Currently, I'm using 2 resurrected 2011 15' MBP's, with yosemite and El capitan.
        I also use El capitan en my 2013 15' rMBP
