Hello, Shanee, great work.

Is there a way to change Graphic section? I should like to add the ® in my Intel® HD 520. Trying to insert it in the DSDT/SSDT it gives me error when decompile it, it says there is wrong codification.

Thank you in advance.

Yeah you can. Navigate to /Applications/Utilities/System Information/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/SPinfo.strings

Copy SPInfo.strings to your Desktop and open it with TextWrangler and find the following,

	<key>DISP_GFX_MAIN</key>
	<string>%@ %@</string>

Edit it to look like this,

	<key>DISP_GFX_MAIN</key>
	<string>Intel® HD 520</string>

Replace file and check About This Mac

I had updated my CPU using @Shaneee's instruction when I was using 10.13.3. I updated to 10.13.4 today using the guide @ https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/macos-10-13-4-update.248292/ over at TonyMac. I updated my apfs.efi and updated. I also used Benjamin Dobell's NVIDIA driver tool to install the NVIDIA drivers. After all this update the processor was reset back to 3.7 GHz Unknown Processor, when it was set to 3.7 GHz Intel Core i7 8600K. I tried redoing the steps and no cigar. Can anyone advise if this still works for 10.13.4? and if it doesn't, maybe someone has a fix?

Thanks @Shaneee for all your work!

It still works fine, you just have to edit the UnknownCPUKind string in English.lproj (or whatever language you're using, I'm assuming) file again.

I double checked and it's working now...

I might have been editing the wrong string or something.

Every time I go to terminal and put in the sudo command and then my password it comes back saying Main Executable Failed Strict Validation 

 

Anyone seen this or know why its doing this when I try to use terminal to process the signature

Try the method a few posts down or after the opening method.   Open with text wrangler ( free software) and there is no need for terminal commands.

 

The terminal command issue may be due to  SIP settings.

If it's showing as Unknown then navigate to System\Library\PrivateFrameworks\AppleSystemInfo.framework\Versions\A\Resources\English.lproj and open up AppleSystemInfo.strings in TextWrangler. This app is on the App Store. Find the following and change it to what you want.

 

From this,


	<key>UnknownCPUKind</key>
	<string>Unknown</string>

To this,


	<key>UnknownCPUKind</key>
	<string>Intel Xeon E5-2670</string>

Many thanks! Worked like a charm for me. :thumbsup_anim:

Copy the file to the Desktop and edit. Once done simply replace the file.

Use either Firewolf RepairPermission script or InsanelyRepairPermission

InsanelyRepair Permission script says me:

 

Error: You must run this command as root user!

 

As far as I know Im administrator user...:surprised:1011234199_Capturadepantalla2018-06-19alas17_26_11.png.58ffbaa3ec1bd9c0729168d3d1ae4946.png

You need to run it with sudo.

 

sudo InsanelyRepairPermissions -r /
