@Da Pupster


what does the card/device look like to the system?

meaning did you add a FakeID or DSDT/SSDT to make the device look like a 4360? 


if i run "dspci" to list my PCI devices: i see this for my 1560


04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43a0] (rev 03) (subsys 106b:0019)


and you may want to put those FakePCIID kexts on the HD in /Library/Extensions


BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext: Install to /Library/Extensions. This kext is much more memory efficient than BrcmFirmwareData.kext and is the preferred configuration.

BrcmFirmwareData.kext: Most appropriate for EFI/Clover/kexts. BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, while much more memory efficient, cannot be injected as can BrcmFirmwareData.kext

yes. perhaps more background. appleALC is generalized HDA implementation and supports a wide variety of audio codecs (on Hackintosh). https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC

@trifero - my longtime friend, I wasn't offended at all - or took it the wrong way at all.  it's all good. no problem here. you are welcome. sincerely welcome.


questions for the forum:

i have added the Lenovo T420 Conexant 20590/20672 to AppleALC.kext

for now I replaced usr-sse2's implementation for the Yoga as it was using ID 12 - which is very close to T420.



is there interest to move that HDA kext solution instead of the AppleHDA_20762.kext?

does anyone use the Dock audio profile?


and then again, this may fall under the category: why fix it if it is not broken?!

yes - VGA is passive and will not actively detect a monitor. It is not really supported by macOS. I use a DP to VGA adaptor that will autodetect a monitor. 

what is the native resolution of your external monitor? you should be able to change it with the System Prefs Display?

well sure blame me! I strive to keep this zip up to date and working. sorry if it broke someones system. Recently, i moved to GitHub for the zip to keep a history of releases. so folks have options.


why update? There are some changes in macOS that requires a newer Clover. but some then some changes in Clover after 4052 to simplifly things for the GFX config seems to backfire.


but also note some of the recent posts have been for people changing to FHD screen.


* which are out of scope for my standard guide* - The zip and guide support the T420 for standard LCD - 1366x768 or 1600x900. Anything beyond this laptop, is going to require some extra tweaking or retrofit.
