nice, that did the trick

Well after a bit of trial and error I figured I would share my progress here to get more people to test it. This is just an installer that grabs your cpu info and outputs it for the "About this Mac" window. Please try it and report back, I have included support for all languages, so hopefully it works for everyone.

For the People where "About This Mac" doesn't work here is a quick&dirty workaround:

Just put CPUInjector.kext from here in your /Extra/Extensions/ or /S/L/E Folder.
After that edit the Info.plist file in CPUInjector.kext

Just add any invalid value for cpu-type (so that your CPU will be recognized as unknown CPU on the next boot)

Example from my CPUInjector.kext/Contents/Info.plist:

<key>cpu-type</key>
<data>
AMD=
</data>


Now my CPU is shown as AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ in about this Mac. The only bad thing is that it doesn't show up in System Profiler anymore.

I also tried adding invalid SMcputype in /Extra/smbios.plist, but this did not work for me, and my CPU still got shown as Core 2 Duo. But maybe it works for someone else. So if you dont want to add an additional .kext, this is the way to go.

EDIT: I almost forgot: You still need to install "About This Mac", this Guide is just for the People where nothing changes after the setup.

I tried it, and it worked on snow leopard, partially.

But I've since removed it because it's altered the ram reading from 800mhz to 677mhz?

Do you know how to correct this? I have already replaced the string file with a backup!

With good bootloader you will get right AboutMac.

hi
something went wrong when trying to edit strings... i have now everything strings with "ABOUT_BOX_etc_etc_etc". i think that this happened after trying to set a large string.
im not sure how to revert, because Defaults only can revert image, not strings.
tanks in advance.
####################EDIT##################
"/System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/AboutThisMac.strings" WAS EMPTY!!!
now is fixed.
peace
