    X230 El Capitan

    Thought id post this for anyone who is interested (I may be convinced to make a guide) What is working: Audio Sleep (hibernate works) All USB Airport (rebranded atheros 9280 as a intel 6300 with appropriate fakePCI kexts, ^%#* Lenovo and its whitelist) Keyboard, trackpad, pointer Power Management Ethernet Lid HD4000(brightness etc) Dual batteries(somewhat quirky but they work) Only things not working Bluetooth(Im pretty sure this is just because it was never turned on via fn f5 in windows, and I have no OS installed other then El Capitan to rectify this, will be putting my msata back in next week to fix this and will report back then) Card reader(haven't even tried, never use it) If you have questions let me know! This is for an Lenovo X230 model 2306CTO with an I5-3210 just fyi, if someone has a different model post up your vanilla DSDT and I will help you with it.

    X230 El Capitan

    Im sitting in class right now, but I can send you links to the guides I used as a general outline. One thing to note is that I own a desktop computer that has a mpcie slot in it that also had linux on it at the time. This is what I used to rebrand the card. Also whatever you do do not get one of the cards that also has bluetooth in it. I happened to have one of those cards on hand, and I could not get that to work no matter what I tried. Ordered one without bluetooth on Amazon for like 10 bucks and had it working in under 10 minutes once I got the card.

    You could try something like that, but I'm pretty sure that the white list will not allow that. Additionally you would have an issue with needing to add antennas.

    X230 El Capitan

    Long time since I've been on this machine or thread. As an update, the x230 is running 10.12.2 quite well. I have not attempted the audio as of yet, but will be doing that right now. The rebranded wifi card with the fakepciid its still working beautifully. I will warn anyone that wants to rebrand a wifi card to get past the whitelist, that doing this basically makes is useless as a windows machine (unless someone knows how to redirect irq and whatnot in windows drivers (I am not interested enough to even try)). If I get the audio working I will let you guys know what I did. Sound is working just fine using http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/311293-applealc-—-dynamic-applehda-patching/page-1. You will need to use the codeccommander kext as well if you want your sound to work when resuming from sleep.

    Well to have your pc shoot down you must first get a .45 handgun pcie card and install it....i will shoot down a lot better after that.

    El capitan z170 gigabyte gaming 7

    I had that glitch without the patch and it disabled in BIOS and with the patch and it disabled in BIOS, and with the patch....etc.....etc.... until i used the solution I posted, but I'm sure he would be glad to listen to advice from someone who does not even have this board.

    El capitan z170 gigabyte gaming 7

    You need to use the USB inject all kext, and the clover USB port increase patch. Thats the way I got it to boot the installer on my gaming 7 anyways. A lot of people have USB 2 ports on their z170 boards and they work easier initially to get booted. Your gaming 7 only has USB 3.0 ports. Even trying an adapter off of one of the headers for 2.0 on the motherboard I had no luck. Then I used the inject all kext and the port fix and it worked.

    You know you can update the nvme package in a bios without having the manufacturer do it right?

    In case you guys didn't know MacVidCards.com now has a working nvme driver that works with any board, using it on a gaming 7 with a samsung pro 950 and its working great.

    Just fyi there is a beta bios f6j for this board. Its posted on the tweak town gigabyte bios forum (its from the manufacturer).
  16. Can you change the volume when using voodoo because I can't no matter what I try.

    El Capitan on GA-Z170X-Gaming 5

    I have the gaming 7 and it works flawless except for the sound. With voodooHDA no matter what I try you cannot control the volume. I do wonder if something could be done with creatives software for the recon 3di as they have support for it for mac as a USB device. For now I am using a USB dac anyways.
  18. Just an fyi about the 6 core being a faster chip. I get 4884 single core and 18699 multicore for a benchmark in geekbench. With a 6700k.

    Actually on my gaming 7 if I change the boot speed between 800 and 1000 mhz it affects what OS X shows for installed memory and speed. If you have less ram showing change it to whichever one it is not currently set to and then reboot and your memory should show up.
  20. Here is a kext I modified to work with the E2400 for anyone who is interested. AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext.zip

  22. I have a gigabyte z170 gaming 7 and I can get the installer to boot but I have to use the USB inject all kext. The problem I am having is that it doesn't see any SATA drives, any thoughts?
  23. You must pray to the clover goddess and make a sacrifice of blood to your bios chip. Seriously use the search engine and provide more details on your setup at the least.

    X230 El Capitan

    yes if you need help with the rebranding, if you decide to do that, let me know. I did it on Ubuntu on a desktop board that has mpcie slots. I did notice that you could plug the mpcie wifi card into the x230 after it booted and see it with lspci command, so you might be able to flash it that way. If you do go that way don't get a card with built in bluetooth, I found that I could flash the wifi part, but the bluetooth part still failed the whitelist check.
