[SOLVED] DELL 5520 ACPI Battery Kext for Sierra 12.4 and Upper

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 I have some crashes in the Activity Monitor when I select the Energy Tab. I read in a previous post here in the forums that this affected by an ACPI Battery Kext. Can I use Rehabman Kext for this or must I compile my own kext for the E5520? Can I remove the energy tab from Activity Monitor? What is change from the old and new kext... is it something important, that can cause instability?

Great! This fix the issue,  going with the first 2018 versions ( second latest 2018 version not show the charging icon). Can I also install the latest USB kext (I don't know if it is the rehabman inject all version will work) and also the latest trackpad kext from Rehabman or this need modification?

Rehabman's touchpad kext does not support Alps touchpad, it only supports Synaptics.

Go with Dr. Hurts version, use latest version compiled by Bronxteck.

As for USB kext, yes latest version is fine.
