but ppl said one slot is soldered with 4gb in some model, so it can only be upgraded to 20gb at most 

 

In my T460 is not soldered...

the soldered one I referred to is T460s, not t460 sorry for the confusion

Hi Tluck,

I just got T450S with HD5500 Graphics.

will those files posted here work with it? Or the differences between T450S and T460 are too great?

well if you mean the kexts, yes some should work 

 

i wish i still had my T460... but here is where i got a lot of good ideas etc:

Does anyone have DisplayPort working on the Lenovo T460? (I don't have it working, and the version of HDMI on T460 doesn't support 4K).

@Kworke - well it worked for me when I had a T460.  i used a mini-display port adapter to connect to HDMI etc.

It was tough to get High Sierra on the T560 working again, but finally the upgrade succeeded.

 

I guess I didn't took care, that the files in the /L/E Folder were still the old files. I had to update them too...  at least im for 90% sure :P

sorry guys. I guess I thought it would be understood that to get to High Sierra easily, one must update ESP and kexts in /L/E before doing the upgrade. The kexts posted will run on 10.12 or 10.13

 

The basic procedure that seems to work:

 

1) update ESP and kexts with latest zip from GitHub (posted a new bundle yesterday) while still on 10.12.6

2) reboot and verify functions (audio etc)

3) directly download High Sierra from App Store to HD

4) install from HD

Apparently there is a variant of the T460 with Nvidia Geforce GT 940MX sitting at RP09.PEGP . Tluck can you add another SSDT that disable the device ?

By any chance does anyone know how to fix the Displayport? Currently only able to use HDMI but would be useful to be able to use both, if possible. 

 

Also, after upgrading to High Sierra, my battery % wasn't displaying correctly on the menu bar. I had to remove it by holding cmd key and then dragging the icon out....just in case someone comes upon the same issue!

@vusun123 - sure if provided the SSDT, I will include in the next release. I don't have T460 but I have been updating the zip on Github with newer Clover and kexts. So obviously I can't test or validate anything.

 

@xcaret - are you on the latest ACPIBatteryManager kext? there were some recent updates.

Yes, I am on the latest ACPIBatteryManager from your new kext pack. The battery percentage is working now after dragging the battery icon out of the menu bar and re-adding it on the System Preferences.....just wanted to throw this glitch with my system in case anyone else faces the same problem. 

 

Is displayport supposed to be working? So far, I've only gotten the HDMI to work. 

 

Never mind, I got it to work now! I just went ahead and followed the DSDT/SSDT steps again and now it is working. 

 

thank you for all your help!!!!

Unfortunately, the longer the problem, the battery was not displayed correctly. It stays at a percent number and updates only after restart.

This has not improved with the new version

You can also use coconut battery to display your battery percentage on your menu bar.....just another option. 

 

My t460 is running flawlessly now.

Hello, 

 

I know this is quite the ask. But i was wondering if anyone had an entire HDD image for this build so i could test it?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the hint, it works great. I can finally use my T460s without the battery is empty at once.
