Hey. I found a repository with modified voodoops2controller kext. Finalized it sysctl and kprinssu and the-darkvoid based on the kext from RehabMan.
This kext almost like VoodooPS2Trackpad from acidanthera. https://github.com/acidanthera/VoodooPS2 https://applelife.ru/threads/acidanthera-voodoops2trackpad-dlja-synaptics.2944059/
I attach the compiled version. https://vk.com/doc183234383_514349114
P.S. If you try it, then naturally remove other kexts for the touchpad and keyboard and, first install via KextUtility. If it works fine, then remove it from /S/L/E and throw in /kexts/Other
VoodooPS2Controller modified syscl.zip
P. P. S.
I wanted to upload this archive to the forum in the "Downloads" section to where the cupcakes are located, but I didn't see a button to create a theme there. Also I have there is no opportunity to leave comments. Why?
It would be nice if someone moved this kext there, too.
Hi, I have problem with latest VoodooPS2Controller.kext, it's impossible to do anything with the touchpad. Here is a video of what happens if I touch it or try to move the cursor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bvt-wmNXvVs
It clicks and moves randomly, sometimes left and / or right click stuck making impossible to click with an external mouse too. I found ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext, but it's very outdated and has too much bugs which I can't fix. Is there any normally working alternative? Thanks for help!
I have VoodooPS2 kext installed. Tried to google the solution but only found changing MouseMultipliers which won't help - I changed all of them, tried to set around 3x times bigger values, rebuild kext cache, replaced the ones in EFI, rebooted but nothing changed, TrackPoint is still slow. Is there any other way to do it? I'm also attaching my problem_reporting files.
Many People gets confuse due to their wrong keyboard hotkeys or completely disabled hotkeys while using VoodooPS2Controller.kext. today I am writing a little guide for newbies to Enable Possible Every disabled Hotkeys on laptop with their personalised shortcuts.
Common Issues Can be Solved Using this guide:
Media Hotkeys not working
Brightness Hotkeys not working
Wrong keyboard entries
Completely dead keys
Bringing Every Windows hotkeys to Mac
While our laptop keyboards use PS2 Methods for input in windows, Mac Uses ADB Codes for Its Keyboard.VoodooPS2Controller convert those PS2 codes to Mac compatible ADB Codes. All the PS2 Scan codes for universal keys like ( A-z, 1-0, !-+) are same for almost every laptops but OEM Hotkeys are different. All laptop has Different Functional keys.So hot keys usually don't work properly without proper edits.
To Solve this issue First find the codes for your system then remap them to specific Mac ADB codes to do the same exact output in system.
(Note : I learned about all these things from different people and different posts, I will try to link Original Posts.)
!!Huge Thanks to RehabMan & All VoodooPS2Controller tester and developer!!
1.Check your Functional keys
First of all you need to check wether your functional keys transmits PS2 or EC scan codes. Install latest version VoodooPS2 kext debug version, and watch your console while pressing keys.
A. PS2 Scan Codes
If It is a PS2 Scancode then you will get some report as like this.
(moniter Using ApplePS2 in search box and "NOW" option activated.)
ApplePS2.. : Sending e022=69 down
ApplePS2.. : Sending e022=69 up
The first value is your PS2 Scan codes and the value after equal to is the ADB code injected to system.
If nothing happens then it might be a EC Query.
VooDooPS2 Github Link
B. EC Queries
Install ACPI Debug kext: https://github.com/R...OS-X-ACPI-Debug
Open MaciASL and click on patch.(Add rehab man repo)
Apply "Add DSDT Debug Methods" and "Instrument EC Queries" Patch
Save the DSDT and restart
Now go to console and search for "ACPIDebug" and press those keys
ACPI Debug Github Link
You will get some result like this
ACPIDebug : EC _Q12
2.Get your new Keys
Some hotkeys like play/pause, scan next track,Brightness,Lunchpad are exist in real Mac so you can find there ADB codes directly.
You can remap your hotkeys directly to those ADB Codes.
Some ADB Codes
Play/Pause : 34
Next Track : 42
Prev.Track : 4d
Others ADB codes can be found in this page.
You can check those ADB Codes you can easily. Convert the ADB codes to Decimal from hexadecial. While VOODooPS2 Debug version is installed,Hold the right alt and press the decimal value then leave the alt key and you can see the Executed ADB code.( For e.g. ADB code for next track is 34 so in decimal it will be 66. So press alt then type 66 and release the alt.your track will be changed in your music player)
B. Extra Function Key
Some Hot keys like Lock windows,Print Screen,HP/Dell Support key, print, Multi monster setup are not present in Mac.
In that Case you need to Assign those hotkeys to function keys like (f15, f16,f17...f20). After that in Mac Keyboard shortcut preference you can set them for various commands
(Note: take help of Automator to create more personalised shortcuts)
ADB Codes for function Keys
A. PS2 Codes
Go to your latest VoodooPS2 kext.
Detailed specification on Github Page.
Open " VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/info.plist" with Xcode or Plist Editor.
Go to Custom PS2 to ADB Map Section
Information Property List >> IOKitPersonalities >> ApplePS2Keyboard >> Platform Profile >> Default >> Custom ADB Map
enter your PS2 Scancodes = ADB Value you want to use( In Hex)
<key>Custom ADB Map</key> <array>
B. EC Contolled Keys
With Proper DSDT Edit you can Notify to PS2M for any EC Controlled Queries.
Example for Brightness Fix (Original Post)
into method label _Q11 replace_content
// Brightness Down\n
into method label _Q12 replace_content
// Brightness Up\n
Custom EC Queries Shortcuts can be done by similar process.(Will Be updated Soon)
with Herve and other kind people's help, I finally installed the os x 10.10.5 on my PC.
However, when I boot it with clover, it get stuck at
"VoodooPS2Mouse 1.8.9 loading..."
1. MB with ICH9, with IDE option only;
2. PS2 wired keyboard, USB wired Mouse;
in local hacintonsh forums, the suggestion are below:
1, open AHCI for SATA on MB;
2, if no AHCI option, inject the patched kext;
3, inject a PS2 kext, such as VoodooPS2**;
4, delete a kext under S/L/CoreServices, to avoid loading keyboard when initiating the system;
5, use an USB keyboard;
1, the ATA patcher is already injected. (no doubt, otherwise the HD can not be recognized even in the installation)
2, VoodooPS2**.kext (v1.8.9) is injected. I also tried another version (v1.8.11) VoodooPS2, or to delete the plug-ins: VoodooPS2touchpad.kext, VoodooPS2Mouse.kext in the VoodooPS2**.kext;
3. Can't find the so-called S/L/CoreServices folder;
