i have the applehda. I found an addition for the chameleon boot plist with hda enabler=yes. Know sound works over headset and speaker. 

 

3 things left for fully working hackbook. Dou you know an vodoosdhc.kext for the integrated sd card reader. I think i read a post a few days ago in any forum but i cannot find it again.

In this thread i found one for t510 but it doesnt work, maybe it is another reader type.

 

2nd i have to check displayport, hdmi, and vga output.

 

and at last BT. I thought the book has build in BT, but there is no detected. Is there any way to check the connected hardware, also if its not osx compatible.

I have a T410s which doesn't have the SD card reader so can't test that. VoodooSDHC works for some systems, you could try it, just add in your device/Vendor ID. Check here.

You can find you dev/ven ID by running lspci -nn from the terminal. The utility is available if you use myHack to do your build.

Does your battery indicator work correctly? the icon looks right but the informations are not shown. Remaining time is not displayed and the percentage level don't refresh.

I use appleSmartBatteryManager. It works better. I noticed that there is a BT doughtier card integrated to the t410.its not detected in osx. Some Members got BT working. What kind of BT Card does they have? Do you know an kext for this BT doughtiercard of lenovo?

I'm on a T510, working great now.  

Bulletproof operations make this a real workhorse machine.

 

Internal LCD, sleep, backlight after sleep, etc. all working well.  

Speedstep is properly working according to HWMonitor.

Other than the card reader (no great loss), with one minor thing, this laptop would be a true HackBook Pro...

 

The external VGA and/or DisplayPort out - using as extended desktop, would be amazing.  

Is this possible with the Intel only graphics model?  I don't have nVidia.

Hey folks, I am new here and wanted to ask a few questions.

 

I installed Niresh's Mavericks yesterday on my W510 - it took a lot of work but I finally got there.  I kept having issues with booting the installer - it seemed hit and miss.  Anyway, it is installed now but I am not happy with using a third party distro as I don't really know what might be in it, so now I know I can run Mavericks on my W510 I want to do it from scratch.

 

Couple of problems I noticed with the current installation:

 

1.  No WiFi - I am thinking of buying the Acer USB-N10 today to deal with this first annoyance, they are cheap locally and I read on this thread they work with Mavericks

2.  Doesn't shutdown properly - when I shutdown the W510 yesterday, the fans kept spinning, I had to manually power off the laptop before they would stop.

 

Now I am completely new to this although I have almost 20 years experience of Unix/Linux so I am hoping that will help.  I was thinking it would probably be a good idea to start with the guide on installing Mountain Lion so I can get to grips with setting up the build platform and doing a manual install - is this the recommended method?  Then I suppose I can just follow the guide on here for updating to Mavericks using the app from the App Store?

 

Is everything apart from WiFi working with W510 now if I use the files from this thread?  I was surprised to see the webcam works out of the box with Niresh install.

 

One thing I have not seen mentioned here or anywhere else is addon batteries.  I have one of these http://shop.lenovo.c...0E7BA925BCE90CA slice batteries which attaches to the bottom of the W510 - will this work with OS X?

 

Thanks in advance for any replies and thanks for this informative thread (it is huge).  If anyone has any W510 specific advise for me, I am all ear/eyes or whatever you say for an online forum ;)
