Hi guys i am releasing to you my new mac app, this app can be used to edit or create custom versions of the voodoo tsc sync kext, i have created it because i have seen many times peoples having troubles in finding the right version of voodoo tsc sync for their cpu, so i created a mac app that lets to edit or create a voodoo tsc kext and configure it for your system, i have included 3 ways to edit the kext:

 

1) configure using one of the existing templates (just chose one of the cpu models listed)

 

2) specifying the number of cores

 

3) manually editing the info.plist of the kext using the editor (still experimental, needs some improvements)

 

This app uses a copy of the VoodooTSCSync in his Resourches folder, or you can open an existing version of VoodooTSC and edit it, there are some other useful features to discover, and new ideas are also welcome to improve this program, i know that with a plist editor you can do what this app does, but this is designed to be more user friendly than editing a plist file manually and just for accomplish the task of configuring this kext for your machines without looking on the web for that specific pre-configured version you need, just download this program and follow a few steps.

 

Download:

Download from insanelymac downloads:

System requirements: Any mac or hackintosh with Mac OS X Yosemite or more recent mac os x version

 

EDIT: New update available, new graphics design and amd support added, the link is the same as before

Thank you for your work.

I had to modify that kext myself for my CPU. I only changed that one value (number of cores). And it works.

I am wondering now, if I was supposed to change something else as well?

no, you do not have to do anything else, just follow the 3 steps: chose a source, edit it, and export it, but i think that this app needs some redesign, this is just a temporary gui

Great work Thanks !

 

Would it be painful to do a version including  AMD Processors as well,  or even a separate one ?

i can create a version dedicated to VoodooTSCSync AMD, by just do a few modifications to the actual app, but i want to develop an unique app to do everything, currently am working on the redesign of this app, i am implementing a new design that is more simple to use, but old design will still be available

I will add it, but right now it will work just by typing the thread count manually in the dedicated text field

thank you very much, I will work to include AMD VooodooTSCSync support, I will take in consideration all the ideas of all of you that replayed, right now I am working to the new design, and amd support will be added after that (for that I need to do some research before, something like collecting some info for amd templates and see which modifications the amd version of VoodooTSCSync needs in info.plist)

If you need any information, do not hesitate. I am sure that all user will help. I can send you the source as well as a modified VoodooTSCsyncAMD.kext, which we have used for ryzen cpu

EDIT: just to be clear i have added it in the new version i will release soon

the new design of the voodoo tsc sync configurator app, is almost finished (i have just to finish building the xml plist editor and fix some bugs and errors) so i want to start to do some research on voodoo tsc sync for amd, so i need a copy of voodoo tsc sync for amd standard and a ryzen modded copy, and then someone to explain to me witch mods are necessary in the info.plist for those kexts

thank you, and I have done so small research and it seems that, you can already use voodoo tsc sync for amd on the actual version of my program, you need just to rename it to VoodooTSCSync.kext and then use it as custom source in the 1st step

yes the tool performs the process, I've searched for the VoodooTSCsyncAMD and activated the 6 cores and get the correct value back.

I will test later the VoodooTSCsyncAMD on my hackintosh

This looks cool and anything we can do to improve Ryzen power management functions would be great.    Could we possibly get side stepping working with this?

Click the upper link and start the app, he has now inserted all the important points into the tool, it works. A tool for people who have no like to make a manually modification, but Good Job
