  1. This update works.  I was getting pretty annoyed too.  I had my display and motherboard replaced and the flicker was still there.  Now it has been resolved.  I also had an issue with my Macbook getting very hot.  I think this may have solved that issue as well.  I was running temps of 80C+ at times.  Now it sits in the 60s.
