@dr hurt I rely on rehabman's method - keep a USB install.  it saved me recently when i got a Red Screen panic on my legacy boot system (i forgot to check the box to update the MBR)so I just booted from the USB and then reinstalled properly. also I have /Volumes/ESP/EFI and /Volumes/ESP/EFI-BackupEFI-Backup is 1 rev behind... as before installing a new version of Clover.pkg, I copy EFI/* to EFI-Backup

hey good news for Sierra on the FN keys... just started playing with it... so dont ask me a lot of questions! 1) disabled custom Key-Map in VoodooPSKeyboard in the Info.plist (changed T420 to T420-NotUsed)2) installed Karabiner-Elements latest version:  https://github.com/t...abiner-Elements and voila - FN keys same as an Apple USB Keyboard. this seems to be the map.  "fn_function_keys": {   "f1":  "vk_consumer_brightness_down",   "f2":  "vk_consumer_brightness_up",   "f3":  "vk_mission_control",   "f4":  "vk_launchpad",   "f5":  "vk_consumer_illumination_down",   "f6":  "vk_consumer_illumination_up",   "f7":  "vk_consumer_previous",   "f8":  "vk_consumer_play",   "f9":  "vk_consumer_next",   "f10": "mute",   "f11": "volume_down", "f12": "volume_up" }

i didn't reinstall any kexts after install sierra. i ran 2 commands: 1) sudo kextcache -i / 2) diskutil cs revert / 1) is to rebuild the caches2) remove the logical volume which leads to double drives or recovery in clover run the kext_install script via sudo _kext-install.command Otherwise to fix up kext permscd /Library/Extensionssudo chown -R 0:0 .sudo chmod -R go-w .

@mpotturi. on another popular hack site there is T440s guide by ludacrivsp. which should have a lot more in common than the T420... but still there is a lot of common kexts: the ones in red should help you get gfx (and audio) fixed up.  for the TrackPad (aka clickPad) you may want to look at the kext for the T460 - an updated VoodooPS2 kext that supports these types of pads. IntelBacklight.kext ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleHDA_ALC292.kext FakePCIID.kext FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext (formerly FakePCIID_HD4600_HD4400.kext) FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext

oh - can be ignored. it must have gotten in there by mistake... anyway to answer the question:i was testing it on my PCI FresnoLogic USB3 card. didn't really change anything. meaning isnt needed.but it is really for my T460 to define the XHCI (USB3 ports)

Lenovo T460 Clover Guide Overview - Work in Progress - 28-Sep-2016 Updated Clover to 3769Updated VoodooPS2Controller.kextAttached is a current zip file with a complete /EFI pack for the Lenovo T460 using Clover on OS X The current File Bundle is for 10.11 - the zip file attached to the bottom of this postFull Clover file set - config.plist etc.Includes all custom kextsIncludes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patchesCaveat: My system is a T460 with Intel 520 Graphics. Currently, the full advanced graphics are not working due to lack of DVMT pre-allocated memory. Most systems need 64, 96 or 128 MB. This system seems to have 32 MB. I must rename /S/L/E/AppleIntelSLKGraphics.kext to not be used at this time. Credits to: RehabMan and Shmilee (more to come) from which, much is/was based on to get the T460 to this point.  Devices and aspects working:Ethernet -  needs IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substituted Intel WiFi/BT with Dell 1510 (BCM43252Z)...

@Turin  good news - welcome to the T420 club! I sometimes get "dead" TrackPoint on startup. But Sleep/wake will usually revive it. or a reboot. I don't know why it randomly does this? if it tries to Restart (when you issued Shutdown) - it could because of a USB issue. Do you have this problem without any usb attached?I don't have this problem so i cant reproduce it.

Update the Zip bundle in the Guide.  16-Aug-2016 UpdateUpdated to Clover r3705 (should be Sierra ready)Revised the ThinkPad Theme - new banner etcUpdated FakeSMC kexts (and included installer for HWMonitor.app)Updated VoodooPS2Controller kext to latest rev - with a few TrackPad and KeyBoard param tweaks -- changed F1-F12 mappings to be like apple keyboard  F-keys.png 129.24KB 13 downloads - As usual - special thanks go to RehabMan.Changed the Bluetooth kext to be an injector style kext instead of full (dummy) kext - no longer version specific​Other kext updates - no new featuresAdded DSDT for "heat-step" - An optional DSDT that needs (RehabMan's) ACPIPoller.kext or HWMonitor to monitor ACPI to change fan speed as function of Temperature. I installed macOS Sierra PB 5 - still works ok -- seems like a more solid beta that El Cap...anyway, it will need work and time to figure out the key mappings etc - i.e. to get audio buttons etc working. Note:my T460...

#2266094 Clover Bug/Issue Report and Patch

Posted by tluck on 16 August 2016 - 04:16 AM

good idea. i have updated and crushed my PNG 8-bit files (used pngcrush) and pushed to the theme repo. if you get chance please replace the thinkpad theme in the clover repo. thanks Note: to rename all .png files to .icns files in a directory: for f in *.png; do mv "$f" "${f%%.*}.icns"; done
