Hey everyone,

I tried updating FakeSMC.kext (running ######) and just replaced 3.1 with 4.2. First time it booted fine, but on the next boot it just froze at the loading screen.

Turns out Lion will only boot if FakeSMC.kext is in a new location, i.e. Extra/Extensions or S/L/E. If I boot my SL drive and just move the file to the other folder Lion will boot, but not if I move the file from within Lion.

What should I do? Reinstall ######?

Please read the forum rules.

You should go to the TonyMac forums for support with their products. We can't help you here.

Seeing as how all of the OS X incarnations need fakesmc.kext in one form or another to run, why can we not discuss it. Fakesmc.kext is essential to the running of Hackintoshes.

Because he used their software to do it and because he's asking about it.

Unless the issue is with ###### (or however you spell it) simply replacing Fakesmc should not cause any kind of problems unless he has incompatible plugins from a different version or something.

Besides I did not understand even a single sentence in his description of the problem.
