Accidentally ripped off the Facetime HD camera cable of the logic board. Now whenever I boot into OS X kernel_task hogs all the cpu (500%).
I could be wrong here, but my hunch is that because no facetime camera is connected, a process is going crazy trying to detect the Facetime camera.
I've taken it to the apple store. Unfortunately they are telling me to replace the logic board. Seems like there must be a hack to disable Facetime HD detection. Not concerned if I don't have a camera. Thanks in advance
