Explanations about the difference between versions 3 and 6
Revision 32 with explanation at #220
FakeSMC is 3.5.0 compatible with High Sierra.
New plugin VoodooBatterySMC created on the base of VoodooBattery by Superhai but with SMC keys generating to show Battery voltage and amperage. As well it created key BATP needed for right speedstep and FileVault2.
Other kexts revised.
Dell laptops and desktop can be monitored by SMM methods as mentioned is the old topic
I made a plugin SMIMonitor for FakeSMC in 2014 but it was 32bits and was not working. Only now I made it to be 64bits (as darkvoid did with kozleks branch) and got positive results
and after heating
So I have monitoring of 4 additional temperature sensors (CPU Proximity, GPU, DIMM, and Motherboard) and a CPU fan which initially stay at 0 rpm and start rotating after heating with 2882rpm.
Moreover I implemented a function for brave people to control fans
sudo SMC_util3 -kF0As -w2
The last digit 2 is a FAN speed you want to set
0 = Off
1 = Low
2 = High
If you have more then 1 fan then you can manage other one by choosing next key F1As, F2As etc.
Precaution! Writing the fan speed is dangerous and may cause a computer damage. Do this at your own risk!
Note. SMIMonitor.kext will work only with FakeSMC v3 provided with HWSensors3 in my signature.
Official release at sf.net contains SMIMonitor without write possibility.
