VoodooStarter - Loads VoodooHDA at startup, so you don't have to

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow hackintoshers,

 

For some reason, my VoodooHDA didn't load at boot, only when i was already logged in, even though it had the right permissions (tried chmod/chown manually in terminal and via disk utility and still nothing) and it was inside the kextcache, so I decided to make a tool that would kextload it at startup without any interaction.

 

The result is VoodooStarter. It is a launch daemon that performs a kextload command right at startup. This technique could be utilized to load other kexts that fail to load for some reason at boot, but succeed when logged in.

 

P.S. I made a small applescript app that makes it really easy to install and uninstall VoodooStarter.

 

Note: VoodooHDA.kext must be in /System/Library/Extensions/ (but you can modify the plist if it is somewhere else) !!

 

The installer app :

 

 

The plist that is installed in /Library/LaunchDaemons/

 

 

Hope it helps,

      Me (and many other people) experience eye-ache from new Macbooks (and windows machines).
       
      I have spent two years of trial-and-error and found that installing macOS Mavericks on my MacBook (pro 13 late 2013, Intel Iris 1536 MB) resolves the issue of eye ache completely. (it is believed that newer systems use harsher version of temporal dithering that causes of a certain group of indivisuals eye aches).

      I cannot stay at Mavericks because of software support and security issues, so the only thing is an issue now:

      How can I take drivers from Mavericks and install them on Catalina? (I tried replacing .kext in /System/Library/Extensions with old files but it didn't work).

      It would be so great if possible!

      Thank you

      Hello, I hope I am posting in the right place...
       
      I am having issues with VoodooInput. It loads fine, no errors or KPs, but movement is erratic. It seems when I am moving the cursor with my index finger and then try to click with my thumb, the cursor will shoot to the bottom of the screen, causing erroneous clicks and a lot of headaches. Sometimes it shoots to the top instead. Sometimes it performs as expected. It's unpredictable. 
       
      I have used VoodooI2C + VoodooI2CHID instead, and they work perfectly fine, but unfortunately they cause KPs. Plus, I like that VoodooInput is a singular kext. This is why I am trying to see if there's any way to fix this issue.
       
      Please see signature for my specs.
       
      Thank you.
