  1. @Jake Lo Thank you for suggesting I did that but for some reason it's still the same.
  2. I don't have my system running right now. Though I am using the bootpack uploaded here and I have uploaded IoReg file in previous post too. Need Help: As suggested by people above I tried to update the config file as well as update opencore so that config.plist is similar to original sample.plist in latest release. So to do that I watched a YT video which suggested to clear NVRam I cleared NVRam from the opencore menu but I think I might have done a mistake and now a BSOD error comes. Saying there is a problem. Any solution for that?
  3. Thank you for letting me know let me see if I can fix it by myself I will post the details here
  4. I did try that out no help at all in battery life improvement. I was out of town for quite sometime and just got back. Also I am seeing some things before boot up which looks like issues. I googled those issues but couldn't find out any potential solution. I am attaching a photo here for that. If someone has fixed this or have any info of this please help Any help on this will be appreciated.
  5. Can I have the link or something for ACPIBatteryManager as most of the file I tried two but none seems to work correctly but I do think it's the wrong file as both of them were uploaded more than two years ago if I am not wrong. Also I had one more question I should also remove the SMCBatteryManager right?
  6. Can you tell me what should I change for doing that??
  7. So I was googling about the poor battery life issue and one weird question pop into my mind I know it's very noob question but I thought why not ask it anyways. So I was thinking whether using SMCBatteryManagers and Using ACPIBatteryManager from rehabman make any difference in battery life or it's just for the battery status ? PS: I got this question as I was wondering what if the battery status which I can see is wrong
  8. Lol I agree about comparing. It was just to give the idea though also I went through the guide and as they suggested power management is working (it looks life the left image provided there). I even used CPUFriend with low frequencies but no help Any solution other than that??
  9. So I was testing laptop for last couple of days and haven't tried those kexts cause I simply restarted whenever the touchpad stopped let me try them now thank you for that. however after using this laptop for a few days in Big Sur now I am quite sure that I am not getting more than 3 hour of battery life. Windows was much better is there anyway I can improve the battery life?? Cause there should be something which is draining battery as I have only used laptop to watch a few lectures so there isn't any load whatsoever. And I am quite certain I used to get almost double or more in windows.
  10. So I tried finding but could not find anything for this trackpad issue I think It will persist if anyone has solved it please provide possible solutions
  11. Oh most gesture are working in your config But the problem is that when I close the lid for sometime(Sleep) the trackpad stops working. Right now this is the problem gestures are working but touchpad stops after sleep for long time. To solve that I tried using ApplePS2Controller and in that gestures are not working so I tried to go Under System Preferences > Trackpad but there it shows no touchpad detected(Also I found this solution on other post there Jake suggested to use that) so I tried.
  12. I've used Bootpack from @Syonagar for big Sur(With Apple ALC). So I have the VoodooPS2Controller.kext and I have already tried using ApplePS2Controller mentioned in A topic here but no luck it failed to recognized trackpad(However trackpad was working without gestures)
  13. Tried that headset audio gone So I guess I am stuck with this choice. But anyways I am more concerned about this touchpad thing than the mic as I don't use mic more often (as of now). The touchpad doesn't work after sleep(after 4-5 min or so) , if I open in no time or instantly touchpad does work. I tried Rehabman's voodooPs2 from the bitbucket but no gestures
  14. oh okay so it turns out that even my system as well as headset mic is not working with the layout id in which audio works fine lol. So I have one id with which audio works fine And one id with which mic works fine but not both together. Is there any way to get functionality of both
  15. headset mic or system mic?? Anyway I haven't checked any of that. Will check both and tell you . Also do you have the same laptop(i.e. Dell vostro 5568)
