-150 are pretty much. But if these work. It’s all good!

I think it’s possible via recovery. But you also could boot in single user mode! (For Terminal Access, and then delete the plist via terminal) or in safe mode for normal access but with launchdemon disabled.

But a normal start should be possible with Voltageshift, I mean a start without a crash! are you sure that -150 is okay?
Turbo can also be disabled with buildlaunchd
See here the 7 option is turbo. In PL1 just enter 45. Pl2 56.


sudo ./voltageshift buildlaunchd <CPU> <GPU> <CPUCache> <SA> <AI/O> <DI/O> <turbo> <pl1> <pl2> <UpdateMins (0 only apply at bootup)>


if you don’t have these options, you need to build the GitHub directory (for the newest version) If I have Time, i can send you my build.

and as a tip. You also should set the UpdateMins to something like 60 or less.
because if the laptop goes to sleep, the Voltage will reset.

on -150 no problems at all , my needs is vscode for web dev and chrome + music on background thats all )) In this condition works like before . when i tried to push cache more system star freezing and some artifacts . One more question , how to correctly enter in safe mode ? In clover i push spacebar on my drive and then select option Safe mode and it never load in to desktop not even once and no meter on which EFI i am or Mac os version . If you can share with me some tips and tricks ))) and thanks for your answers !!!

It seems like hot replug works but with a big delay (in minutes) i.e if you unplug usb-c/tb adapter (with USB device directly attached to it in this example), it won't mount back when replugged. But if you wait a couple a minutes then plug it back, it works and usb devices mounts again. Weird.
I wonder why it's not on Readme. I was sure hot replug doesn't work for me, until i red this.

Heard about this kext (seems to date a bit now): IOElectrify
I wonder why IOElectrify kext has just one mention on this thread.

I found this mention of people using IOElectrify to enable TB3 hotplug on XPS 9570
Couldn't get TB3 working with IOElectrify on 9560 at all.
But when i tried to use IOElectrify with SSDC-TYPC, it finally got me hot replug working (instantly, without delay)
I can finally replug my 4K montor, power adapter, ethernet, soundbar, keyboard and mice with single cable without reboot!
It still breaks if you put laptop to sleep while USBC dock is plugged (just disable sleep for power adapter)
And it still requires USBC dock to be plugged at boot (or just plug it while laptop is sleeping and wake it)

Doesn’t IOElectrify Power the USB C Port all the time? So the Power consumption would be much more?

Could you share your current clover folder?
