    I am not 100% sure, but I believe the setting that only allows DisplayConfigX resolutions (i.e. not the system resolutions) is the key. The system may try to switch to 800x600, but if that is not available, remains in 800x480.

    I'm having the same problem getting it to stay in that display setup it keeps going back when its turned back on. Did you guys ever figure this out.

    yea you need to delete all the other resolutions. be careful though if you screw it up it's a pain to fix.

    It isn't such a big pain. Booting into single user or even just safe mode and removing the override files generated by DisplayConfigX can fix this easily.

    Hope this helps as this thread is pretty old and I prior to making this tutorial still hadn't found any information on this display.

    To make sure the computer boots into 800x480, turn off System resolutions, and uncheck all resolutions above your custom 800x480 (but leave the 640x480 as a fail safe.)

    Lilliput Problems

    So, I just bought one of the new Lilliputs with the LED backlit screen. I worked for a few hours using the settings in this post with DisplayConfigX with no luck at all. I would screen share with the mac mini and set up the config, and then restart, and the screen would just show garbage with the 800 x 480 resolution. And, sometimes, would go into this weird safe mode type thing where it showed only 4 basic resolutions @ 60 Hz with no desktop background. If i ever did get a picture at say, 800x600 the screen was very, very dim and there was lots of flickering, even at the right Hz setting. I had thought maybe the display was defected and was going to send it back.

    Before I did that though I decided to try to connect the display to my PC. I plugged it in, and it worked perfectly. It defaulted to 800x480 and it was bright and clear. So, I then plugged it back into the mac mini, and it automatically came up with the DisplayConfigX resolution I had set up previously and saved. And, it was bright and clear as well.

    I'm thinking maybe there was some sort of internal calibration that needed to be done with the display at the correct resolution/setting before it worked. So, just a tip for anybody struggling with getting the DisplayConfigX settings working (it seems there's a few in this thread) Try connecting the display to a PC first and then back into the mac mini.
