Question for everyone here. Which kexts should I use to enable cpu temps, and other temp sensors. FakeSMC or VirtualSMC?

Fake has more sensor support, but Virtual has CPU sensors too.

Hi Guys so I have successfully been able to fix a lot of things and am at the final stretch. I was hoping If I could get help with Audio

1. My Speakers work but headphones do not.
2. Brightness is very jerky. Is everyone's brightness control like that? Shouldn't changing brightness be smoother.

Attached ioreg and debug file
Hey can you do me a MASSIVE favor and tell me how you got it working on the pm981? I can't get past the DiskGenius part. I'm completely lost. Specifically I need help on how to back up the MacOS copy on my flash drive to the SSD when they're using 2 incompatible file systems. DiskGenius doesn't even recognize my flash drive as formatted. I just asked this on the hackintosh subreddit and I'm being told suyukai's post is ******** haha I hope thats not the case!

Thanks,
Garrett

Hey Garett, so unfortunately that Suyukai post seems utter **** to be honest and I ended up changing my SSD myself. However, there is one suggestion. Maybe see if it works with Catalina? -- Install Catalina instead of high seirra on the USB and then flash it back onto the SSD.

You could use Macrium Reflect to do these operations if nothing else works. To be real honest, you're better off just getting a 4k SSD from Sabrent on amazon for like 100 bucks for 1tb. You would still have reasonable space to maintain a windows mac dual boot. Best wishes mate, feel free to ask me anything else.

Damn that sucks, I'm just gonna order a 500gb 970 evo, 1TB would be a complete waste since I'm only using macOS for Logic Pro. It's like half off on amazon right now so I might as well. Thanks for the reply.

Anyone here running PB8 for Catalina? Are you able to install Kexts properly?
