No battery recognition

Recommended Posts

Hello, I´ve used niresh mavericks for a while and I had not been able to get the battery works as it should. I mean, it works, I can use my laptop without being plugging in but the battery icon doesn't show any information. I´ve tried to install VoodooBattery for mavericks but it didn't work, any suggestion what can I do to make it to work normally?

Thanks in advance!

remove /System/Library/Extensions/AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext 
 
Install VoodooBattery.kext and AppleACPIPlatform.kext to /System/Library/Extensions
 
you may want to rebuild the kernel cache to avoid issues

I´ve already done it but it didn't work. I removed AppleSmarBatteryManager.kext, reboot, used kext wizard to install both kext and rebuilt the kernel cache and repaired permissions from system/Library/Extension and nothing. it didn't work.

May if I unistall both kext VoodooBattery and AppleACPIPlatform, reboot and reinstall would work?

thanks for your reply.

Hi, I´ve done what I thought about uninstall both kext and reinstall them but it didn't work...

Does anyone know what else can I do to get my laptop battery work like it should??

Thanks in advance

I think VoodooBattery is the only solution out there

so nothing else what can i do? 

I selected Laptop battery during installation, may that cause the VoodooBattery not working??

unfortunately you have to do it by trial and error

try not installing any battery at install time, and then install voodoobattery

 

took me quite some time to get it to work on my ultrabook, but it works fine

always restarting from scratch, checking and unchecking various options at install time.

 

then installing kexts and rebuilding caches
