You don't need VoodooPState.kext. Just insall Chameleon RC5 653 or higher and in apple.com.boot.plist add:

GenerateCStates

Yes

GeneratePStates

Yes

After that 3 commands in terminal.

ioreg -lw0 | grep PerformanceStateArray

ioreg -lw0 | grep CSTInfo

kextstat | grep LPC

Good Luck ! :D

How exactly are we supposed to use the other files? The Monitor is a .app but it also comes with a kext and a PNG file in the root of your zip.

Well I think I figured out the app, but while booting in verbose, I get that VoodooMonitor warns me there is not Intel Processor and as such, it will not be loaded.

You need to install VoodooMonitor.kext in Extensions, and Monitor.app put in Applications folder and than run it !

Yeah, but it still gives me those errors in verbose. You don't get them? It seems to still be made for Intel CPUs. I guess I'll try again today. Is there any way to reverse the terminal commands? I'm not familiar with the ones you posted. I'd like to reverse what I already entered, reboot and re-enter them again.

Thanks for the help mlstudio!

Yes, not support IntelSpeedStep but i think supported Qool'n'Quiet... So you do some research and see if you need this...:) Goodluck to you my friend !

Actually if ur on a modern Intel CPU, all u need to do is to update the com.apple.Boot.plist and install a recent Chameleon RC5 build and AppleIntelPowerManagement.kext will do the magic.

If u own an AMD processor, u'll need that VoodooPstate.kext and *just the kext* then install Pstatemenu to control it http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=254061#entry1666050

About those command lines, they are just listings, probably from some old threads regarding Intel power management:

ioreg -lw0 | grep PerformanceStateArray => list all I/O Kit registry entries with formatting (unlimited line width) then find all lines that include "PerformanceStateArray"

kextstat | grep LPC => list all running kexts then find lines containing "LPC"

You cannot (and dont need to) "undo" those lines.
