OpenSource is good

Yeah, it’s very good.

some new mods for fakesmc to monitor different temps of your pc – link.

IntelThermal – Intel CPU temperature monitoring.
LPCMonitor – temperatures and fans from ITE, Winbond and Fintek controllers.
TZplugin – temperature from ACPI device “Thermal Zone”

FakeSMC 2.5

New features:

  • Reworked 3rd party patch for reading cpu temps, now kext does it on demand, not in loop. You can use Istat to monitor cpu temps, default tjmax value is 100, you can adjust it Info.plist, works only for intel’s core 2/core i7.
  • Added debug option to plist, possible values – true/false, if debug is “false”, you will not see messages – “key not found”, by default debug is enabled. Version for noobs: edit Info.plist, change debug to false, to get rid of these messages – FakeSMC: key info not found
  • Fixed a small glitch with “compatible” string.

Sources, version for leopard and snow leopard here.

Updated FakeSMC

A new release of fakesmc contains improvements:

  • Proper error handling when requested smc key isn’t found in database
  • If requested smc key isn’t found in database, fakesmc will drop warning about it into dmesg with information about length of requested key, usefull for debug of apps which reads some smc keys
  • fixed timeout delay on restart/shutdown (added keys LSOF and LSSB)

source – fakesmc.zip , snowleopard kext – fakesmc.kext.zip, leopard kext – fakesmc.kext.zip

If you use opengaltrestart or other reboot/shutdown fixers, then u still need to use it with fakesmc.

p.s. this doesnt work well with voodoo kernel, because voodoo kernel blocks Dont steal mac os.kext, so you need to use dsmos/appledecrypt anyway
