Hello fellow hackintoshers,

For some reason, my VoodooHDA didn't load at boot, only when i was already logged in, even though it had the right permissions (tried chmod/chown manually in terminal and via disk utility and still nothing) and it was inside the kextcache, so I decided to make a tool that would kextload it at startup without any interaction.

The result is VoodooStarter. It is a launch daemon that performs a kextload command right at startup. This technique could be utilized to load other kexts that fail to load for some reason at boot, but succeed when logged in.

P.S. I made a small applescript app that makes it really easy to install and uninstall VoodooStarter.

Note: VoodooHDA.kext must be in /System/Library/Extensions/ (but you can modify the plist if it is somewhere else) !!

The installer app :
Attached File  VoodooStarter.app.zip   57.14KB   83 downloads

The plist that is installed in /Library/LaunchDaemons/
Attached File  com.limiter121.voodoostarter.plist.zip   985bytes   59 downloads

Hope it helps,
