Hi all,

 

I created an installer for my version of FakeSMC with plugins and applications latest revision.

 

Compatibility from 10.6 up to 10.11.

Test, please.

Revision 32 with explanation at    #220

FakeSMC is 3.5.0 compatible with High Sierra.

New plugin VoodooBatterySMC created on the base of VoodooBattery by Superhai but with SMC keys generating to show Battery voltage and amperage. As well it created key BATP needed for right speedstep and FileVault2.

Other kexts revised.

I tried it but it broke my sound (VoodooHDA) and internet (AtherosL1c) -they are injected by Clover-  and HWsensors showed less info.

I had to remove the installed kexts and copy my old (current) FakeSMC and everything fine again.

 

Don't know if I did something wrong here, selected Intel CPU, FakeSMC, LPC ITE87xx snd GPU Type AMD Radeon.

What is benefit/difference of using this over kozlek's branch? Just more choices for different hardware?

Thank you Slice, works fine. Tested on my Laptop running 10.9.4

 

P.D.

For MacBookPro6,1-6,2 (Arrandale CPU) "RPlt"="k74"="6B373400 00000000" can be added to FakeSMC "Info.plist" as:

<key>RPlt</key>
<array>
<string>ch8*</string>
<data>azc0AAAAAAA=</data>
</array>
 

Also, the most recent from Apple MBP6,1-6,2 "REV"="1.58f17"="01580F00 0017" as:

<key>REV </key>
<array>
<string>{rev</string>
<data>AVgPAAAX</data>
</array>
 
Another data is:
<key>smc-compatible</key>
<string>smc-piketon</string>

 

Additionally, to avoid some startup (console log) error related to SMC key, we can add the "lightshow-version"="LsbV"="1.4a6"="01040A00 06" as:

<key>LsbV</key>
<array>
<string>{rev</string>
<data>AQQKAAY=</data>
</array>

Hi Slice.

 

Tested fine on 10.9.4 and 10.10 DP4 all works fine even  HW Monitor is Yosemite dark mode friendly.

 

Thanks.

 

Tested on Asus Z87 Sabertooth with GT660 discrete.

Kozlek decided to make quite different version so I stay with this good working version improving it.

ACPI access is for those people who know how to edit DSDT to get access to hardware parameters. It may be useful if you have no other access.

LPC chips: Winbond, ITE, Fintek etc present on desktop motherboards but absent on notebooks.

It is normal for this branch because plugins used differently from FakeSMC.

Yea, GeforceSensors looks buggy. NVClockX is preferable.

So can the sensors kexts be used inside a plugins folder in fakesmc or do the have to be installed normally?

I created a plugins folder under Contents,  then added the kexts I loaded the pkg file to an USB drive, then moved the FakeSMC.kext and the plugin files i needed to the relevant EFI kext directories in Clover. This was to avoid the installer writing to S/L/E.

 

See here what I mean - it appears to work very well.

Try without LPC

The same thing happened, it must be buggy, reverting and won't try again, I don't want to destroy my install.
