  1. Hi, thanks for the Answer. Yes, PM is only working partially. Vanilla is not working (tried that a few ways), i've done the Installation after this guide: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2833-install-osx-on-lenovo-thinkpad-x201s-and-maybe-x201/ I do not have working Backlight Control. Unfortunately no one answers my thread in osxlatitude and i did not find anything regarding the Power Issues... Also the battery is only lasting about 1 Hour with OSX...the same battery (about 5400 mAh left of 6300 mAh) is lasting over 4 Hours with Linux and Windows. It seems to me, that the Powermanagement (which is btw Vanilla) is not lowering the Voltages acording to the Frequency...same goes with the iGPU, it looks like it's running at 3D-Clocks all the time...(i do have working QE/CI)
  2. Hi, i finally got an X201 over my X200s (i just couldn't get the MHD4500X to work), swapped the nice X200s WXGA+ Screen over to the X201 and made a MyHack. Install worked okay-ish. Specs: i5-520M, Intel HD Graphics, 60 GB SSD, 1440x900 Screen. Fresh thermal paste, clean and dust free. With Windows 7/8.1 the Fan isn't even on most of the time. The CPU Temp is barely cracking 50°C while just surfing the Web, with getting up to about 55°C. Then the Fan kicks in on a very low speed until it's down to 50ish°C. With OSX 10.9.3 the Fan is running all the time, but on a very constant speed (from the noise, i would say about 2500-3500 rpm, so about 45-50%, max. RPM is 6900). The CPU Temp is hovering about 55-60°C all the time. SpeedStep seems to be working, because HWMonitor shows it clocking down to 1.2 GHz. But since 1.2 GHz are enough for light surfing without any "effects" and some text writing...i would love to "pin" the CPU to 1.2 GHz... So bottom line is: Is it possible to control the Fan and/or clocks? It looks like that the Governor is clocking up pretty fast. CPUThrottler doesn't work with my installation - and i have no idea where to start. So maybe someone can give me some tips^^
  3. Intel GMA 3000 / Broadwater-GZ 82946GZ

    Hi, i just recently installed OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.8 on an older C2D (actually Pentium) Lenovo Thincentre M55e. It's running fine so far...unfortunately without any Graphics Acceleration, and not more then 1024x786. I don't really care for CE/QI on this thing, but at least 1440x900 would be nice. It's probably going to be used as a iTunes Server for Wifi Backup of my sisters iPhone. But i don't seem to be able to get anything other then 1024x786 as a Resolution. What i tried: - Putting the Device-ID in the GMA950 Kext, because the GMA 3000 only has a bit more Clock, then the GMA 950. -> Didn't work. - Trying to get the Resolution over Chameleon -> Didn't work. - Trying to use another Kext -> didn't work. - Booting in 32-Bit Mode, also with "- legacy" - didn't work (although i'm booting in 32-Bit Mode anyway) - Using a Screen-Res Changer -> Didn't work I'm not sure about the Device-ID in the Kext, because loading it with kextload doesn't get me anything other then "failed to load". Kextutil gets me a "Can't stat xxx.kext - no such file or directory" So...i'm a bit lost and maybe someone could help me. I would appreciate it very much^^
