Well, I do have the VoodooBattery.kext in my /OS/Extra/Extensions folder but it doesn't seem to work. Also there is no 'show battery life in the menubar' option in the Sys Preferences>Power Saver. Any advices?

how does osx identify your hardware? what is your smbios config? if you are identified as an imac or macpro, i think it doesn't need a battery indicator, am i right?


mine is set and identified as a mac book4,1 on the smbios.plist. open up system profiler so you can identify which system the OS is running.

Yes, I've thought about that before posting and you're right: there's no need for such thing on a desktop.

I used the Lizzard app from osx86.net for editing my SMBIOS plist. The System Profiler says something like:

Model Name:	MacBook
Model Identifier:	MacBook5,1
Processor Name:	Intel Core 2 Solo

But as you can see, what it says it's a bit {censored}ed up. (Core 2 Solo, LOL).

Don't know what to do.
