VoodooTSCSync Configurator, create a custom version of voodoo tsc sync

32 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

Thank you for your work.

I had to modify that kext myself for my CPU. I only changed that one value (number of cores). And it works.

I am wondering now, if I was supposed to change something else as well?

no, you do not have to do anything else, just follow the 3 steps: chose a source, edit it, and export it, but i think that this app needs some redesign, this is just a temporary gui

Great work Thanks !

 

Would it be painful to do a version including  AMD Processors as well,  or even a separate one ?

i can create a version dedicated to VoodooTSCSync AMD, by just do a few modifications to the actual app, but i want to develop an unique app to do everything, currently am working on the redesign of this app, i am implementing a new design that is more simple to use, but old design will still be available

I will add it, but right now it will work just by typing the thread count manually in the dedicated text field

which simplifies the manual modification of the info.plist
an AMD version would be cool, very good job ITzTravelnTime :)

thank you very much, I will work to include AMD VooodooTSCSync support, I will take in consideration all the ideas of all of you that replayed, right now I am working to the new design, and amd support will be added after that (for that I need to do some research before, something like collecting some info for amd templates and see which modifications the amd version of VoodooTSCSync needs in info.plist)

If you need any information, do not hesitate. I am sure that all user will help. I can send you the source as well as a modified VoodooTSCsyncAMD.kext, which we have used for ryzen cpu

for you that asked for sandy bridge i7, i have added a generic template for socket 115X cpus that requires voodoo tsc sync, you can also see in the picture a little preview of the color scheme of the new graphics

 

EDIT: just to be clear i have added it in the new version i will release soon

the new design of the voodoo tsc sync configurator app, is almost finished (i have just to finish building the xml plist editor and fix some bugs and errors) so i want to start to do some research on voodoo tsc sync for amd, so i need a copy of voodoo tsc sync for amd standard and a ryzen modded copy, and then someone to explain to me witch mods are necessary in the info.plist for those kexts

thank you, and I have done so small research and it seems that, you can already use voodoo tsc sync for amd on the actual version of my program, you need just to rename it to VoodooTSCSync.kext and then use it as custom source in the 1st step

yes the tool performs the process, I've searched for the VoodooTSCsyncAMD and activated the 6 cores and get the correct value back.

 

I will test later the VoodooTSCsyncAMD on my hackintosh

<key>IOCPUNumber</key>
<integer>5</integer>

This looks cool and anything we can do to improve Ryzen power management functions would be great.    Could we possibly get side stepping working with this?

      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.

      Unfortunately, this project has come to a halt, at least for now. I don't have enough time to work on the project and it's lacking behind, so please don't use it for configuring OpenCore, it will produce broken configuration files.
      I will leave the source code on GitHub, so in case someone wants to take over the project, they can.

      MacOS does not support natively the keyboard backlight for non-Apple hardware.
      I wrote an open source Kext project (ClevoService) to perform this task on Clevo laptops.
      It's fully working on my Clevo P9XXEN_EF_ED laptop with Mojave (18G95) and it should works on many other Clevo laptops.
       
      If you own a Clevo laptop with full color backlight keyboard, take a look at:
      https://github.com/FreeJHack/ClevoService
       
      The big advantage is that the backlight function is fully controlled from the numeric keypad and it's saved between boot/reboot and sleep/wake.
      You can change color, backlight level and ON/OFF.
      For the installation, download the kext from release page and follow the instruction given in the GitHub repository.

      I can not manage to install Catalina on this legacy Asus machine that runs Mojave fine. When the installer boots up, DiskUtility does not see the internal hard-drives, neither the master SATA one or the the slave, ATA one. I have discussed this already on the Clover section with Slice, he told that some kext seems to have changed from Mojave to Catalina, he told me to use IOReg. Since then, I have postponed my work on Catalina due to the issues regarding the Mojave supplemental updates.
      I have decided to start a new topic in here, due to visibility reasons and some new turn. The latest version of the dosdude1 patcher for unsupported Macs, discussed on Macrumors forums, patches the installer so that DiskUtility sees the internal hard-drives, I am able to install Catalina but, on first boot, the OS gets into a kernal panic with the message ”still waiting for root device”. I have searched online for this error, I have found Information regarding previous macOS versions with solutions that seem to have little to no relevance for the present issue.
      Before installation finishes, I receive a message like ”Installation finished on Macintosh HD Data”, instead of ”Installation finished on Macintosh HD”. I admit this split between the two in Catalina still confuses me, perhaps this is how it was suppose to be? Perhaps something that was suppose to end up on Macintosh HD ends in Macintosh HD Data?
      I admit the DVD-Rom and hard-drives are wired kinda of weird by some guy in a PC service, he said this is the optimum combination, something the ATA hard-drive is slave to the DVD-Rom. Perhaps this causes confusion into Catalina? On Mojave this configuration was fine. 
      Probably the solution suggested by Slice is the best, to replace one or more kext from Catalina with the Mojave versions of them. I do not know yet how to identify and replace them. If any other solutions seem possible, I am open to them.
