#2146963 Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

Posted by tluck on 21 June 2015 - 02:40 PM

@filfromearth - glad to hear it. hmm haven't had any randomness like that in a long time. But I have been on Yosemite since last fall so may you want test 10.10.x out . 10.10.4 beta has been very solid for me. maybe reseat memory for the heck of it.

@filfromearth1) USB WIFIwell you can try to use usb/wifi kexts that are a little newer. the link below might work for as they seem to support RTL8188-RTL8192 - i have 3 different USB wifi sticks that this driver set works. download v2.0.1.http://support.asus....SB-N10&p=11&s=1 2) i am not sure what this issue is all about -  app store is not working.  but maybe you don't have your ethernet device as en0? and wifi and en1I just posted a new zip bundle today - and fixed the install scripts.  so you can open you system preferences and remove your network devices. and then run _post_install_network_reset.bash script (in the /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder) (assumes you put the kexts in /S/L/E and in particular InterMausiEthernet.kext

@downlord - glad hear it was smooth! Yosemite is pretty solid these days and the upgrade is seamless! as soon as 10.10.4 is finished (i have been running the public beta 10.10.4 for awhile without issue) I plan to update the zip bundle with the latest Clover and slightly newer FakeSMC/HWSensor pieces. @Laberlohe. welcome to the thread. I could be wrong but there some folks that may be using the NVS2000 - a awhile back there was talk about it  -  working mostly after dropping the SSDT MCFG table by clover.

RE: hibernation it is working (mostly) on the Lenovo T420 laptop platform with the OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 driver.UEFI Modepmset hibernatemode=7 (which to my understanding is like mode 3 but not encrypted so it works!)slide=0OsxAptioFix2Drv-64there is 1 issue -- upon resume from the hibernation image (versus resume from memory), the LCD is black (backlight black) until it goes through 1 sleep/wake cycle - close lid and then open as soon as it is asleep. Then all is fine.  Since this a laptop and I rarely need to resume from the HD (i.e. hibernation image) I have not worried about it until now i when see some discussion on this topic! So anyway, I was curious about the slide values (other than 0) and how that may possibly help the resume?or anyone has some thoughts or ideas on how to resume from hibernation without blank screen?

@jengpeng looks like a driver problem - maybe the kext/driver is not compatible with Yosemite? I am guessing this? Are you using a USB WiFi? since i see something about a realtek driver for 8188?before i replaced my WiFi card, I used a USB wifi but is was RTL8192?

@Duh Tomazz  1) wifi - as you know the standard intel wifi will not work. but there are Atheros or Broadcom options that are supported by OS X. You will have to installed a modded bios to allow these once you replace the Intel card. 2) the Lenovo trackpad supports some 1, 2, 3  finger gestures 0 but is not the same as the apple trackpad so will have limited capability. see the System Settings for the trackpad options. and then you can look into the config.plist files under VoodooPSController.kext/...PlugIns/...Trackpad.kext/.../Info.plist - this can change some of the mappings of what characters the 2 or 3 finger swipe generate.

i guess i could add both driver options in the zip bundle?  anybody else have glitches? I do know then when i restore/boot from the hibernation file, i get a black screen until i close/wake the lid. so the wake from hibernation is not perfect and don't know what is causing it. but then again i don't let the battery get that low to need to boot from hibernation file vs regular sleep.

in case you did not get the memo! .... well iMessage/FaceTime starting working again. i am not using a cloned ID anymore as that caused problems. So i followed the alternate ROM method in Jay Monkey's How to Fix iMessage post on another blog. see end of thread for a method that might work for you. btw, 10.10.4 (beta) is working well... no new features as far as i can tell - but fixes are always welcome. will post the latest clover as i think the version in the guide will not recognize 10.10.4.

Questions about custom entries 1my win partition appears like os_vista.icns in fact it is win.8.1 so it should be os_win8.icns​how can i fix it? a another way than duplicate os_win8.icns and rename it os_vista.icns which is my temporary solution Clover looks and finds the bootmgr efi file and just labels it vista,win - it doesn't try to figure out what version of windows beyond that. so yes if you don't like the vista icon - then yes replace with the win8 icon. Questions about custom entries 2my recovery partition appears like os_mac.icns with vol_recovery.icnsit would be nicer to have os_yos.icns with vol_recovery.icnshow can i fix it? a another way than duplicate os_yos.icns and rename it os_mac.icns which is my temporary solutionbetter the recovery icon should be OS dependent isn't it? Maverick or Yosemite for e.g.   what version of recovery do you have? Does it match the OS?...

@tetonne hmm. hard to imagine the ethernet driver causing it.  but no, i have not seen anything like that. I have different screen resolution on both of my T420 systems. So sure, if you do not need hibernation, then i would try running the other OSXAptioFixDrv-64.efi. here is the full Clover b3200 pkg to install it.  Attached Files  Clover_v2.3k_r3200.pkg.zip 5.46MB 11 downloads

ok - so I now I actually posted the right file into the guide. sorry. Really not much to report these days. It all just works!10.10.3 seems to be bit more stable. And as some have reported updating is a breeze. Download and go.  Mieze's Ethernet kext is working quite well for me so I figured it was a good idea to include it now.Anyway, other than updating EFI bits, this new kext needs to be installed in /S/L/E and replaces the older AppleIntelE1000e.kext - so don't forget to remove it! So to keep y'all current, posted the clover bundle for the T420: Clover UEFI on T420 Guide 15-April-2015 UpdateUpdated to Clover r3200 - compiled to remove text before GUISwitched to OsxApioFix2Drv-64.efi since it allows hibernation and works fine.Switched to Mieze's modern Intel LAN Ethernet Kext (IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.0.0d2) - replaces AppleIntelE1000e.kext - Thank you!!!

FYI... the 2.0.0d2 version has been rock solid for me on my Lenovo T420 Intel 82579LM PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet:   Name: ethernet  Type: Ethernet  Bus: PCI  Slot: PCI Slot 1638400  Vendor ID: 0x8086  Device ID: 0x1502  Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x17aa  Subsystem ID: 0x21ce  Revision ID: 0x0004  BSD name: en0  Kext name: IntelMausiEthernet.kext  Location: /System/Library/Extensions/IntelMausiEthernet.kext  Version: 2.0.0d2 So today I included this kext in the T420 Guide thread so it should get a wider audience from that group. Thank you. P.S. I also have been using your other recent kext v2.0.0d2 for RTL8111 (on my gigabyte systems with Realtek 8168) - and it has been working very well for me.

The attachment files are reposted to the T420 guide -- seems the site went down and lost some files/data recently.

Posted a new zip bundle to stay current. Clover UEFI on T420 Guide 02-March-2015 UpdateUpdated to Clover r3185 - compiled to remove text before GUIBumped VoodooPS2Controller.kext to v1.8.14 (to stay current)Note/FYI:1) I have been using the OsxAptioFix2Drv.efi driver without issue. well my 7 year old boy likes to run his T420 laptop till there is zero battery. this allows it to shutdown and hibernate when low on power.   2) The testing on Mieze's alternate ethernet kext (IntelMausiEthernet) has progressed to a version/state that is pretty good.  ... as the com.insanelymac.driver.AppleIntelE100e v2.4.14 E1000e kext is fine. it seems the Yosemite network stack is still a work in progress as both network drivers had some issues with VMware 7.x in 10.10. in bridged mode.   @Averyfreemanglad you got the 520 installation solved. i am not exactly sure if your touchpad issue (sticky) was the same thing I ran into using the default VoodooPS2 settings....
