2.2.1, apparently the 'fix' will be released in 2.3:What version are you using?
Yes, after you did this and boot the first time into OSX, OSX seems to not be able to switch to the discrete GPU. Another reboot fixes this; currently no issue for me, because I am using the laptop with Linux only.mine appears to be stuck on intel now and I cant seem to change it.
btw: which kernel versions are you using? pre 3.6-rc3 require a lot of patches. 3.6-rc3 and rc4 should be good with:
Did anyone try a dualboot configuration with linux and windows ?
I would like to use the intel gpu in linux, but the nvidia gpu in windows ...and get rid of osx on this small harddisk, maybe put it on an external one...
but as i understood it, OSX is needed to switch the graphics card, right ?

afaik version 2.2.1 (currently most recent one) still contains the bug that we use to force the laptop to boot with the Intel GPU: no need to downgrade. Force integrated GPU, shutdown and boot into Linux.I still haven't tried downgrading gfxCardStatus, maybe that's my next step.
Of course, if you want to use the Nvidia GPU only, there is no need to use gfxcardstatus and force the integrated GPU.
About nvidia blob driver) Try the most recent beta version; backlight control might not work, as the gmux device (that controls the backlight) seems to be disabled somehow by the nvidia driver.
