#2350616 [GUIDE] USB Fix El Capitan 10.11

Posted by tluck on Yesterday, 05:41 PM

@ClaudesTech it seems that you are saying:sleep and USB works fine with LID openbutsleep and USB does not work via LID close so i would be looking at the sequence of events in DSDT that are happening when the LID is shut. I would start by looking at the LID device - there may be logic paths or calls missed depending on various variables that may or may not be set with OSX.there maybe a PRW or PSW method that need to be removed.  i find that using RehabMan's ACPIdebug.kext will help understand what is happening.there are some patchmatic scripts that will add a bunch of debug lines to track what methods are called and when. i used this approach to figure out why the system would not wake after sleep. had to change some stuff in a _Q method

NVRAM file followers - i have made some revisions to syscl's 1.5 script and it works quite well now. added some addition logic and conditionschecks for Legacy Clover or EmuVariable present to decide whether to write the nvram to ESP that has a CLOVER folder in it.so looks at all disks and checks if ESP mounted - if so, use itor mount ESP on new mount pointwrite NVRAM only if different from existing fileunmount (without a force) ESP Note:it seems best to disable indexing and spotlight for ESPi mounted all my ESP and ran this:mdutil -d /Volumes/ESP* here is v1.6 script sample output: 3 disks - 2 have Clover - mounted one ESPso i change brightnessrunrun again$ sudo /etc/rc.shutdown.d/80.save_nvram_plist.local; cat /Library/Logs/CloverEFI/rc.shutdown.logv1.6 (c) 2017 syscl/lighting/Yating ZhouFound ESP on disk0s1 and found Clover in /Volumes/ESP-01/EFI/CLOVERFound ESP on disk1s1 and found Clover in /Volumes/ESP-1/EFI/CLOVERFound ESP on disk2s1Target path: /Vo...

@superwkn - it may be easier to adapt a T450 set of files to the x250. see https://github.com/s...T450-HackintoshI adapted a lot of the stuff from the 450 to my box the audio on x250 is probably ALC292 vs ALC293.the battery stuff gets patched by patchmatic -  it creates a combined battery called BATC which is fake thing to aggregate BAT1 and BAT2 the process for DSDT/SSDT is fairly simple:extract the original DSDTuse patchmatic to do some basic patching on the original. and then create a bunch of SSDT to (re) define all the devicesARPTHDEFIGPULPCPNLFPS2KSMBUSXHC etc it is a matched set - config.plist + DSDT/SSDT + custom kexts.

@superkwn - probably you are using the default profile in VoodooPS2TrackPad? i created a T420 profile to fix/improve the TrackPad character. you can look at the T420 values and make them default or add a property in PS2K to define a profile for your box. this should give you more control vs just the Pref Panel. see the T420 DSDT for an example - see _DSM in PS2K device. ioreg -l ... | | | "device-properties" = {"RM,oem-table-id"="T420","RM,oem-id"="LENOVO"} @149113i wonder if you have a logical volume? that is confusing clover? if you boot into Recovery - you may be able to see this with diskutil on the command line etc.if so revert from the logical volume by something like this: diskutil cs revert <diskNs2>  where diskNs2 is your Mac HD.

if you are seeing weird/glitchy menu colors on LCD when using 2 external monitor.  i think the answer is to use a modified EDID to remove non-RGB profiles. i will post a new zip soon with the EDID modified for T420 LCD.  working for me! @Somez - Not intentional to avoid your query on T460. short story: After a rocky start with El Capitan on the T460, recently over the last month with Sierra the box came together for me. These problems are all history. Now in fact I replaced my tried-and-true trusty T420 and docking station with the T460 and its docking station. Bottom line - and time will tell - it is pretty solid. The ClickPad is nicer than and the TrackPoint is reliable. I really like the USB3 ports on the Dock so now i can truly just click it out the dock and go without a lot of hassle. with my T420 i was using a FL PCI for USB3 etc etc. Other TP sites and references T430 - site: http://www.insanelym...-yosemite-1010/ - may be somewhat negl...

no such luck  :wink_anim: My 8yr old son is still using a T420 ... and I will keep my T420 around for a backup. my T460 has a decent full HD LCD.  but since I replaced my T420 orig LCD with a Glossy LG LCD, that screen is much better! seems brighter and whiter. and i prefer 1600 vs 1920 native res on 14inch screen!

@mangyver- have you tested the new Audio kext i posted today? i want to see if there is a wide-spread issue?- there used to be sw - i never used it - to use the finger print - it was for mac OS that worked on the T420 (Upek device finger print reader) - TrueSuite by Authentec.

yeah! double the performance is pretty good. especially for the price - they seem to be about $75 US on eBay. i have moved on to focus on my T460 right now.

syscl how about  1) /EFI/CLOVER/OEM/<board>/nvram.plistand for no OEM2) /EFI/CLOVER/nvram.plistand3) if there is not /EFI/CLOVER - dont write it.

#2343111 Clover Bug/Issue Report and Patch

Posted by tluck on 02 January 2017 - 11:51 PM

@syscl - the new scripts are working to write to nvram.plist root of ESP!well in fact it writes nvram to all 3 of my disks in the root dir of ESP.  and one of my disks which does not even have EFI/CLOVER its an .apdisk perhaps should check to see if .apdisk is present (i.e. no OS or EFI/CLOVER etc)  looks good though

@goodguess -1) TrackPoint on startup - yeah i don't know why the TrackPoint does not always work on cold-start. This has been happening on my T420 for as long as I can remember.  sleep/wake always works for me. on my T460, this exact same kext works 99% without issue.  2) Tap to click works - if you set it the TrackPad Preferences 1st tab. @Tophaholicwhat happens if you eliminate IntelBacklight.kext?you could try the config.1600x900.plist - edit it and set DualLink = 0. this one will inject a different EDID to see if that make a difference.

nvram.plist with 3974 -for some reason about 1/2 of the time, the script cannot save nvram.plist to /Volumes/ESP ( and why in the root of ESP vs say in the OEM or CLOVER folder?) and so it puts in /nvram.plist $ cat /Library/Logs/CloverEFI/rc.shutdown.log ------------------------------- DATE: 2017-01-01 TIME: 18:08:04 ------------------------------- >> Begin Script: /private/etc/rc.shutdown.d/80.save_nvram_plist.local NVRAM couldn't be saved to nvram.plist on root of disk0s1 !
