  1. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Yes. Where did you get that table of S/N's?
  2. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    @mircsicz I have just searched for "ROM" but it only outputs vague information on putting this information into RtVarialbles and smUUID. I have already read up on this topic as I have previously tried fixing iMessage and been successful. So this is not the information i was looking for. More specifically, my question was simply to find out where the serial number was derived from, as it is not found in config.plist.
  3. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    OK so out of curiosity, after installing clover and replacing files from tluck's pack, the computer serial number defaults to W89F9196DH2G - - where is this value located? I can't find it in config.plist. Any ideas? And don't ask me what i'm trying to do. I'm just looking for this value to understand how things work.

    I am also having an issue where Clover Installation Package is installing to the Root Directory, not the EFI System Partition.
  5. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Exactly this. Read this same bit of info, generated a new SmUUID, and put in a valid serial number according to my machine specs (which is not hard to find), and it worked. Though I had to unlock my appleid email by calling apple support, and thanks to some fast talking asian male, I was able to get my facetime and imessage working. New way of doing things with Clover seems more efficient and streamlined. Any idea why I have two clover boot Yosemite entries?
  6. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    So now it is using the native NVRAM. Does this mean iMessage will be working? I need a little clarification. What exactly is needed to get iMessage and FaceTime working? Do I need a real mac to extract the MLB and ROM values, then place them into RtVariables? Please excuse my poor understanding of this subject, I'm trying!

    And for users that don't have access to a mac? Is there any hope in fixing imessage? My smbios looks quite empty
  8. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    I'm currently on mavericks and after following your suggestion here and on the guide, signing in keeps looping for both iMessage and Facetime. This is beyond my scope.
  9. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Any Idea why I can't sign in to iMessage? I have already fixed the e1000e kext for ethernet. stumped.....
  10. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Updated clover config.plist to get NVS4200 to work. However, it stays as a black screen. There seems to be some sort of conflict still. Is nvidia injection enabled by default? I think it should be off. Any way to turn off Nvidia graphics injection from clover boot menu by default? Also, iMessage and Facetime don't work for me. Here is the code when I try to reload the Intel E1000e kext. Weird thing. Kext is present in /S/L/E /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntelE1000e.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) not found; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).

    I'm assuming that it doesn't matter if you input the hexidecimal value instead of just 2b. Went ahead and and put in "2b," and I'm happy to say that wifi works great! Big applaud for tluck helping everyone out and everyone else involved in the project. Bravo.
  12. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Positive; hardware works in other operating system of course One more note it is not detected in the system profiler in the pci devices list. Only ethernet bus is detected. Where can I find this injector kext since SSDT or DSDT patch wont work since I don't have AMI, it says it is something different in DSDT.aml (TP-83 i think?)
  13. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Successfully did 1.46 Whitelist, had to disable security chip in UEFI BIOS. Now, as a quick test, I did a kext mod for IO80211Family.kext, but setup utility in mavericks says connection failed. Detects wifi packets, just can't connect to my wpa2 network. Any dsdt or ssdt injection for t420? Using AR9285. any ideas @tluck and @rehabman?
  14. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    UPDATE: To my post above, This problem was solved by deleting the already present ssdt.aml and creating a new one with the script in tluck's zip file. @all, quad core tends to run ~5-10* Celcius hotter than the dual core. Reaches higher temps more quickly. However, with decent TIM, and laptop stand/cooler, it is perfectly fine. ~65-70*C during gaming. Currently working on eGpu setup for windows, mac os x is next on the list.

    Ok, I just upgraded to a 2760qm, and no longer boot properly into OS X (stalls at apple loading spinning gif). How would I go about this upgrade? Anyone?
