You have flickering problems with the notebook?

I got everything working, except the graphics stable. (VGA, HDMI, SLEEP, CARD not tested, wifi not working indeed for so far..)

I apologize for the extremely late response. 

 

I have flickering problems, especially when opening Dashboard. After installing a new application from the Store, I have even more of them.

Mavericks has no support for the AMD 8xxx/9xxxx, this was introduced in Yosemite. As such, you'll never get graphics acceleration with current version of Mavericks (10.9.5) unless Apple brings out a new update that supports those. But don't bet on it now that Yosemite is out...

I will test Yosemite sometime again...
 
The first time with Yosemite on my G505s didn't go well. From what I remember, the system was practically unusable because of the constant freezing and flickering resulting from almost everything I did.
