Vaio Hackint0sh Forgotten Kexts and Error Fixes

From the feedbacks that I recieved, I have realized that I have forgotten kexts for the brigthness control and battery control, also some people reported that their usbs wont work for flash and external hard drives so I will be giving a kexts files for fixing those as well.

Installation is easy as follows just use normal kext installing method.
1- Unzip all the kext files and move them to the desktop.
2- Use KextBeast installer to install kext files which are located on your desktop.
3- Reboot and enjoy

Step 1:
