I did not make any changes to /S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/C/P/ACPI_SMC_PP/C/R as imac12_2.plist is already embedded, correct?
Replaing my current imac12_2 definition in smbios.plist with the Macbook 8.3 SMBIOS.plist posted by oSxFr33k I get 5 power states. So some improvement but Flaked indicated we're better sticking with imac12_2 definition, right?
So what's best to try to get all power states? Trying different smbios.plist? Or would we need a new version of speedstepper?
The iMac12_2.plist is included in 10.6.8 and beyond, yes.
The main component is the stepper-program defined in that plist. I've tested several other stepper-programs of different models and got a slight deviation every time. The stepper-program seems to be stripped down in 10.7 for iMac12_2.
The only solution is to use the old stepper-program from 10.6.8.
SpeedStepper is not a solution to get speedstep working fully, it only prevents a KP of AICPUPM.

Looks good, which model identifier are you using?

flAked can we patch bios to avoid patching AICPM by SpeedStepper ?
Yes. Working on it, only for the P8P67 though.

I'd call it a ASUS bug and I fear they will use the same UEFI component for the next generations of motherboards, so no fun for ASUS owners in the future (possibly!).
