thx!

My first impression is very positive.  :)
the new revised version makes editing of dsdt very easy, thanks for these great version. if you could create a package for AMD boards, then that would be great!  :thumbsup_anim:

 

tested and working with VirtualSMC my first impression without apparent problems here.
Thank you

Are model and serial number still read from the same values in Clover config.plist with VirtualSMC? Meaning, external factors aside, I should be able to swap FakeSMC with VirtualSMC and not break iMessage etc?

Messages works because of working nvram, not FakeSMC or VirtualSMC.

You need to run the mactools script manually first then open the project with Xcode and compile after.

Here's the nasm version that I used to build. The macOS built-in nasm in /usr/bin/ is incompatible. 1130744447_ScreenShot2018-09-01at2_47_40AM.png.81d1df0e1a66f4bb434c019262f1975b.png

I'm uploading the kexts here in case if you have trouble building it yourself. Here you go:

I'm a bit confused - what does the SMC Dumps do in practise and what is the consequences of running VirtualSMC with a missing SMC dump?

 

For example - I've set my Hack up as a iMac18,2 (which hasn't been added to VirtualSMC yet). What is the difference between running VirtualSMC without a compatible SMC dump or with a compatible dump?

SMC dumps have nothing to do to VirtualSMC functioning. Thy are mainly reference material to the research to help us make improvements of the emulated keys. Obviously, only real macs are of interest.

I really appreciate your work. Luckily, I have a MBP(14,2) and I am willing to provide my SMC dump file. I am a new beginner and is there a guide about dumping the SMC file? Thank you.

Thanks for the development of VirtualSMC. Works great with me. :thumbsup_anim:

 

I have only one question too SMCLightSensor.kext. LightSensor works with this kext. But I do not understand how to activate the LightSensor.

It can activate the LightSensor by using BetterTouchTool > "Toggle Night Shift". But this ist the only way which I found.

 

Does anyone have an idea how to activate LightSensor without BTT?

Yes, I realize that. 

My problem is that the command over BTT is the only way which activates auto-brightness on my Laptop.

When I use this command from BTT, the screen changes to Night Shift and auto-brightness work. Why I do not understand because unfortunately I do not know the command behind BTT.

So I wanted to ask how to activate auto-brightness normally.
