Can't place battery status on menu bar


Best Answer styrian, 08 July 2014 - 07:00 PM

Hello!

 

Because of your not telling your hardware, either in your post nor in your signature, I can only guess, that you need a correct battery patch in DSDT. aml. Try the find a your hardware matching one at Rehabmans github and don´t, if posssible, rollback systemfiles.

 

Have fun.

Whenever I click the option on the Energy tab -> Show battery status on the menu bar it automatically unselects and no battery is shown.

If I replace AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext with version 1.32 I can get the battery to show in the menu bar. However it shows "No batteries available".

Before I would also replace the AppleACPIPlatform kext with version 1.3.5 and that would do it.

Now, using Yosmite DP3 I just get a KP and have to revert to the original AppleACPIPlatform.

 

Any suggestions to get battery to display properly? :s Do I need a more recent patched AppleACPIPlatform? Or some sort of DSDT patch?

 

Thanks

to me it seems a developer preview bug.

Maybe... The rollback of the kext always worked nicely. Either they added dependencies to the newer versions of the kext or it's a bug.

I applied a patch to my DSDT (Rehabman's). That solved it. No need to rollback kext's anymore :)
