VoodooPatcher

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

After a post regarding how to inject a custom version of VoodooHDA.kext into VoodooLoader I've released a tool that will do it for you (including permissions)!

 

To use the tool do the following:

 

1. Download and Install VoodooLoader

2. Download VoodooPatcher

3. Open VoodooPatcher and drag your modified VoodooHDA to the window

-For now, the file must be named VoodooHDA.kext

4. Wait 5-10 seconds

5. Enjoy a custom VoodooHDA

 

You can download both VoodooLoader and VoodooPatcher from the official Google Code page --> http://code.google.com/p/voodoo-launcher

 

PS. I think I've worked out all the bugs, however if you find any please message me with the problem

So - I'm very new to the whole apple ecosystem. I'm having trouble using this patcher.

 

Whenever I use the program to inject my own kext, I keep getting a permission denied error before I can even enter my password to grant permission. Subsequent attempts yields the same issue.

 

Is there any way to grant permission to the patcher/kext?

 

I'm guessing I'm being dense or am missing something very blatantly obvious but any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

edit: forgot to mention: I'm running 10.7.2. Installer for the launcher runs fine. When I try to manually set permissions using the chown -R root:wheel command, I'm still getting "operation not permitted".

The patcher already sets the permissions for the kext, however just for future reference, you must be logged in as the root user

 

sudo -s
chown -R root:wheel (KEXT)

OR

sudo chown -R root:wheel (KEXT)

 

I hope this answers your question.

Also, if you don't mind taking a screenshot and posting that would help if it's a problem with the launcher

Hmm. Logged in as root user. Still getting the same error - but for one reason or another, the VoodooLoader seems to get my sound working now.

 

And thus arises another problem. Using the VoodooHDA kext is causing my video playback to stutter horribly without audio (in youtube). Any suggestions for that by any chance?

 

::sigh::

 

Here's the screenshot.

OK, I am totally stumped here... I have 10.4.6 on a Dell D620 with Sigmatel audio chipset. So far, nothing has worked to get sound, including a USB device (Lexicon Alpha). I have tried to follow the use of the VoodooHDA.kext, but still no good. Here's the story so far: I downloaded VoodooHDA.kext.2.7.2-10.6.zip and extracted it in Windows XP. I also downlaoded and extracted VoodooLoader_Installer.zip and VoodooPatcher.zip.

When I boot to OSX, I get the extracted folders & drag them to my desktop. I also removed the AppleHDA.kext from the extensions folder. Now what? I tried putting the VoodooHDA.kext into my System\Library\Extensions folder & rebooting - nothing changed. I ran the Voodoo loader - nothing changed. I tried running the patcher, but if I drag the VoodooHDA.kext onto the patcher icon, I get asked for permission (no problem) but then I get rotating circle cursor and the ystem is hung up solid - can't select any other windows, can't shut down (unless I hold the power button long enough to force the BIOS to do it). rebooting afterward still shows no audio devices.

Is this just a Tiger issue, or is there something else I'm missing.

I realize that this is a hack - but it's really frustrating not having basic functions like sound and network capability. I'm open to advice here!

Unfortunately, this is a problem with Tiger. I never intended for it to be used with Tiger so the modules are probably incompatible. Sorry

      Salve, il mio portatile ha la scheda audio  Realtek ALC3234, uso voodoo hda ma con questo Kext l'audio è più basso del normale.. cosa posso fare? Si sente più basso anche il microfono, infatti spesso siri non capisce cosa dico
    • By yungyulli
      okay so I patched my applehda and apparently the sound works..
      but only if I close my laptop wait a couple seconds for my speakers to pop and then open the laptop again?
      anyone have any experience with this?
       
      (there was a similar situation I had where the screen was all garbled up unless in closed and opened my laptop, I fixed that with a intelgraphicsfix kext I think.. maybe there is a similar fix?)
    • By yungyulli

      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.

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

      My friend (code) and I (idea and hints) developed a small tool for changing sound volume even for aggregate devices cause native sound volume controller can't change volume of aggregate devices (it was always pain in the ass with my laptop).

      Features:
      Changing sound volume of every device (even virtual aggregate device volume by changing volume of every device in aggregate device) Changing default output device Native appearance (looks like native volume controller) I think it can be very useful if you're using VoodooHDA with 4.0+ sound on the board (my use case), but you can find another use cases.

      For example if you want to play 2 or more output devices at the same time you should:
      Create aggregate device in Audio MIDI Setup Add all output devices you want to this new aggregate device Hide default sound controller icon if enabled (by dragging away or in audio preferences) Use our app to control sound volume Add our app to startup (if you need) You can find source code here: https://github.com/rlxone/MultiSoundChanger/tree/master
      Latest build here: https://github.com/rlxone/MultiSoundChanger/releases
