Hi, don't wanna open a new thread. What does this kext do exactly ? I have it in my /E folder, should I keep it there or it's useless ? Thanks.

ElliottForceLegacyRTC is AppleRTC.kext from 10.5 recompiled to work in 64-bit kernel and drivers mode and with the IOProbescore upped.

It overrides AppleRTC.kext for the purpose of preventing an insta-reboot followed by a CMOS reset, upon wake from S3 sleep.


It has long since been obsoleted by a Pearl script that patches AppleRTC.kext in /System/Library/Extensions.


"Elliott" was a humble shout out to Dave F. Elliott, aka The Originator, Holy Discoverer and Wanderer of The Hidden Path (etc etc, add your own adjectives of praise)
