Please make more threads about KEXTS with more details shown its jobs ; Specially Lilu and FakeSMC and the Kexts which should be in its directory ;
Still not clear the point of duplicating Kexts in Clover and L/E
I've tried many times to install some Kexts to L/E but it doesn't load like AppleALC.kext.
FakeSMC and Lilu in L/E = KP

Thank you

Yeah, that's my point as well.
Much easier to update them or fix issues if any.
There's a utility called "kext updater" from update.kextupdater.de which can scan "/clover/others".
I use it checking kext updates and it works really well, keeps my kext latest!
I really liked that app Kext Updater, but I had to remove it because it contains:
Adware.OSX.Pirrit-1
If at some point in the future the adware is removed, I'll gladly use it again.

I scanned with Avast and it didn’t find any issues.

@jiffyslot,

The best tool to install Kexts into /L/E is now Hackingtool, it basically does what using Kext Beast + Kext Utility does but in a single App with a single mouse click, Chapter-7 of the Guide in Post #1 updated to show this new and easy method.

Cheers
Jay
