I tried it but it broke my sound (VoodooHDA) and internet (AtherosL1c) -they are injected by Clover-  and HWsensors showed less info.

I had to remove the installed kexts and copy my old (current) FakeSMC and everything fine again.

 

Don't know if I did something wrong here, selected Intel CPU, FakeSMC, LPC ITE87xx snd GPU Type AMD Radeon.

Try without LPC

i would also like to know that does this bring versus the HWSensors from kozlek. Also, what does ACPI access and LPC chip do ?

Thank you Slice, works fine. Tested on my Laptop running 10.9.4

 

P.D.

For MacBookPro6,1-6,2 (Arrandale CPU) "RPlt"="k74"="6B373400 00000000" can be added to FakeSMC "Info.plist" as:

RPlt
ch8*
azc0AAAAAAA=
 

Also, the most recent from Apple MBP6,1-6,2 "REV"="1.58f17"="01580F00 0017" as:

REV
{rev
AVgPAAAX
 
Another data is:
smc-compatible
smc-piketon

 

Additionally, to avoid some startup (console log) error related to SMC key, we can add the "lightshow-version"="LsbV"="1.4a6"="01040A00 06" as:

LsbV
{rev
AQQKAAY=

Hi Slice.

 

Tested fine on 10.9.4 and 10.10 DP4 all works fine even  HW Monitor is Yosemite dark mode friendly.

 

Thanks.

 

Tested on Asus Z87 Sabertooth with GT660 discrete.

Kozlek decided to make quite different version so I stay with this good working version improving it.

ACPI access is for those people who know how to edit DSDT to get access to hardware parameters. It may be useful if you have no other access.

LPC chips: Winbond, ITE, Fintek etc present on desktop motherboards but absent on notebooks.

 

No plugins inside FakeSMC.kext ! Is this normal ?

It is normal for this branch because plugins used differently from FakeSMC.

Yea, GeforceSensors looks buggy. NVClockX is preferable.

So can the sensors kexts be used inside a plugins folder in fakesmc or do the have to be installed normally?

I created a plugins folder under Contents,  then added the kexts I loaded the pkg file to an USB drive, then moved the FakeSMC.kext and the plugin files i needed to the relevant EFI kext directories in Clover. This was to avoid the installer writing to S/L/E.

 

See here what I mean - it appears to work very well.

Try without LPC

The same thing happened, it must be buggy, reverting and won't try again, I don't want to destroy my install.

Thank you sir for clarification. I will try this when i get home :)

I installed the pgk and after that OS X 10.9.4 didnt boot (seems Fakesmc cant get loaded : waiting dsmos for ever.

Found that all installed .kext got wrong permissions!! After chown -R root:wheel .... for each .kext the problem was gone.

Thank you for the note. I was supposed that the installer will keep permissions set in.

I set root:wheel but now I see they changed back somehow... 

Sorry!

Have no time to verify new one. Looks to be corrected

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.

      Using this driver you have to exclude other battery drivers: ACPIBatteryManager, AppleSmartBattery and so on.
      This driver assumes to using HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5 as being part of it.
