I installed voodoobattery.kext and appleACPIPlatform.kext repaired permissions and rebuilt caches and all that. The problem is every time I go to energy saver and check "Show battery status in menu bar" it quickly unchecks itself. I read about resetting nvram, but that's not possible on a hackintosh. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Which SMBios do you use? What is your Chameleon config?

I Couldn't find the voodoobattery.kext, but I had the problem i mention even before I installed the kext. I thought this would fix it but i guess not.

GraphicsEnabler=yes

npci=0x2000

dart=0

EthernetBuiltIn=yes

UseKernelCache=Yes

 

I don't know what smbios i'm using, I don't have a smbios.plist in my extras folder either.

Thanks I got it working by deleting it from extras and installing it to S/L/E
