Fixing Embedded Controllers: SSDTTime

The second involves using SSDTTime which automates most of the process. See here on how to use it: SSDTs: Easy Way

To get the SSDT-PLUG, run the following:

  • 4. Dump DSDT then run 2. FakeEC

This will provide you with some files, the main one you care about is SSDT-EC.aml. The DSDT and .dsl are only left for referencing or verification.

The main things to note with this method:

  • Doesn't work on HEDT and server hardware(ie. X99 and X299)
    • While the majority following this guide are likely on consumer hardware, those with fancier hardware will need to either use the Prebuilt or Manual method
  • Doesn't work on Laptops
    • Just like with HEDT, you will need to either use the Prebuilt or Manual method
  • Doesn't provide you the USBX property to fix power
    • This can easily be fixed by using this prebuilt file in addition to SSDT-EC: SSDT-USBX.aml
    • Note USBX is only needed for Skylake and newer
  • Doesn't really teach you anything
    • For most, this doesn't matter. But to some knowing what makes your hackintosh tick is part of the journey

Wrapping up

Once you're done making your SSDT, either head to the next page to finish the rest of the SSDTs or head here if you're ready to wrap up:
