Hackintosh Brightness Control v0.2



Control your monitor brightness of your desktop computer by pressing F1 (decreasing brightness) or F2 (increasing brightness) keys.

How to install:

1) copy hackintoshBrightness.app to your application folder

2) Run hackintoshBrightness.app from your application folder and grand access from accessibility (located in System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Accessibility)

3) Add hackintoshBrightness.app on login items (located in System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login items)

4) Restart your hack.

Hackintosh Brightness Control works only on monitors connected with hdmi/dvi cables and only with few AMD/NVIDIA gpus.

Tested on Yosemite 10.10 with AMD Radeon R9 270.

Hackintosh brightness uses DDC/IC source created by Jonathan Taylor for brightness control and some code from DDC Tool by PHPdev32 for the gui.
