MacBook Pro, no battery performance hack

Almost one year ago, I’v removed my Macbook Pro battery…
Since that day… my laptop was f*cking slow.

This is how I’v solved it – following the article from http://www.rdoxenham.com/?p=259.

Find out our model’s name
MacBook-Pro-de-Paulo:~ PJunior$ system_profiler -detailLevel mini | grep "Model Identifier:"
 Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,1
Do the sh*t!

Lets move to root

sudo bash

Lets go to the right folder

bash-3.2# cd /System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/


Lets move the .plist of our model out of that folder…
– change the destination folder to your needs –

mv MacBookPro5_1.plist /Users/PJunior/

Reboot and it’s done.
