Battery Fix - Lion
This fixes the problem with many laptops battery icon not displaying status in the menubar properly or not working at all do to Lion. The old kexts worked on Snow Leopard only. This zip file is for OS X Lion only it will not work with prior OS's.
1. Download Battery Fix for Lion to your desktop.
2. Unzip it and install the 2 kexts necessary to run your battery icon to display correctly and fully functional on Laptops only, install with Kext Wizard v3.7.10 or above via the kext Installation tab section to the S/L/Extension folder by dragging both kexts into the installation box.
--- I color coded both kext for quick location if you need to find them and remove them or mod them.
3. Once installation finished, click on the 'Maintanence' tab in Kext Wizard, check the "Rebuild Cache" box and 'Execute'.
The next time you reboot your Battery icon on the top menubar will display and be fully functional!
..... Still works great in Lion 10.7.2 through Mountain Lion 10.8
Note: Make sure you do NOT have any prior Battery kexts before you install these 2. It might cause a panic or make your OS act funny. Get rid-off any old battery kext from your Extensions folder if any prior to installing this pack. Fix permissions also before rebooting!
