Hi there again!
OK, good things first. I bought a Lenovo X220, brand new, heavily discounted since the model is not longer manufactured. Beautiful little thing
Intel Core i7 2.8
Fingerprint, 3G, GPS, USB 3.0 and blah blah blah.
The installation went really smooth, amazingly smooth. The most difficult part shockingly was creating a USB installation disk with Lion DiskMaker. I won't go into much detail, it was a localization problem related to how the Mountain Lion Installation app is named in Spanish making it unrecognizable to DiskMaker. If anyone is interested I can explain him the easy workaround.Tools I used:
Mountain Lion 10.8.2 installation
The Stripped EFI Folder posted on #63
And I came out nicely and smooth. I even updated Safari and some other stuff without any problems, after being prompted by the App Store app on the dock. I must say the IPS 12.5" looks gorgeous on Mac OS X, much better than on Windows 7 and the system feels faster and more responsive than in Windows, which I honestly find a little bit puzzling.
The system says it's a MacBook Pro 17inch, Early 2011 with a 2.81 Ghz Intel Core i7
. The display profile says spdisplays_display 17" (1366x768)
. Any way to change that? No that it matters much as I said the screen looks terrific.Working
· Power-On with fingerprint. I stored it previously using the ThinkPad software, since it is a BIOS set up it works independently of the OS. Nice feature.
· The funny little lamp besides the webcam (Fn+PgUp)
· ExpressCard slotWorking with issues
· Sleep mode works after doing as suggested on post #27. Closing the lid
doesn't seem to make the computer enter sleep mode. When the lid passes a certain angle on its way to be closed, the Fn+F4 combination for sleep mode doesn't work either.
· USB 2.0 inputs. USB 3.0 doesn't work
, any ideas?
· The trackpad works so-so. Precision of the pointer is smother than in Windows 7 (again I'm puzzled by this), but two finger scrolling
works in the opposite direction (if you swipe towards the keyboard the page goes down and vice-versa). Pinch zoom and rotate don't work. Three and four fingers are equivalent to using F11. That's it. Any suggestion is very welcome.
· Battery doesn't show remaining time nearby the icon or percentage. Just on the foldable menu. Anyway to change that?Not working
· No Wifi obviously. The Dell 1515 card has arrived today though I'm a little bit reluctant to flash the BIOS. Does it void the warranty? Would I be able to return to the original BIOS? Would it be possible to modify the Dell 1515 vendor-ID to bypass the whitelist but still be recognized by Mac OS X as an airport card? It's an appealing approach, though maybe it doesn't make sense what I'm saying... Still thinking about it, is not such a big issue anyway since I can use a wifi nano-usb in the mean time. They're dirt cheap.
· No sound. At all. At first boot the mute and volume keys increased and decreased the bar, now when you press them the volume logo shows up with a forbidden sign. There's no sound card recognized. Any idea where to begin exploring?
· No microphone detected. Is it paired with the sound issue?
· No bluetooth.
· Card reader doesn't work. I think it's a known unsolvable issue so I don't worry much.Untested
· Display port
· WAN card for mobile data
Is there any program that kind of "checks" the system to see what is working and what it is detected?
Is there any way to check if the kexts are being applied correctly? I assume they are placed in System/Library/Extensions. Is that correct?
Many years ago with my first hackintosh I remember you had to repair permissions in the Terminal every time you modified the kexts, I understand that now that's done by running myHack, is that so? do you have to reboot afterwards?
I think I messed something up with AppleHDA.kext because I removed the original (kept in on another folder) and placed the one which was on the Extras folder on S/L/E.
Is there any way to stop the messages at startup? I think I read something about line 461 AppleHDA or whatever before entering the desktop.
I haven't touched the dsdt.asml file, should I?
I'm really sorry for the long message, I got carried away :-) Thank you very much for all the job you're doing. It is amazing.
I'm going to gather information and will get back to edit the message if I manage to solve anything.
Regards to everybody!
