  1. [GUIDE] OS X Lion on ThinkPad W520

    what's up guys? haven't been here in a minute. did a fresh install of mavericks 10.9.2, following the previous procedures, but only getting a score of 4.12 in Cinebench (v11.5) as opposed to Gothic's 5.31 10.9.2 / i7-2720QM / 16gb / quadro 1000

    k, here's another "thing" i've run into.... my webcam doesn't show up in FCPX, however it works in skype/facebook/etc. the solution posted here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=255970&hl=isight&fromsearch=1 doesn't work as Lion no longer supports powerpc apps. any ideas?
  3. I fixed iSight! ^_^

    Requires PowerPC support & doesn't work in Lion. any alternatives?

    hi fellas, i've edited the Info.plist by copy-pasting chatbox's above (& gotten louder volume with it), but still no automatic switch when i plug in headphones. is there anything else you did differently to make auto-switching work? --- w520 / voodooHDA 2.7.3 System Info reads: Intel Corporation 6 series / C200 series chipset family high definition audio controller (0x1c208086) --- any help greatly appreciated!

    haha, you guys are gonna laugh.... everything went through perfectly smooth until i ran that WINUPTP.exe & got the "BIOS image file is same as BIOS ROM. An update is not necessary at this time" message. what happened was, I already flashed my BIOS to the latest version when I first got this laptop. FML. any ideas?
  8. [GUIDE] OS X Lion on ThinkPad W520

    After you've downloaded the exe, when you'll run it (in windows), it will "unzip" to C:\DRIVERS\FLASH\8buj12us Inside that folder is where you will find the environment.dll file Gothic is talking about. I've gotten a hex editor called HxD & opened environment.dll in there, however... no luck finding either " C4 83 14 89 45 E0 83 E0 7D 00 74 31" or "C4 83 14 89 45 E0 83 E0 EB 00 31 7D" - Gothic, please elaborate on this!

    i've replaced mine with the DSDT.aml.zip you attached at the end of the guide. here's what happens (right after I back up AppleRTC.kext.orig) if i restart, it lets me put in the commands just fine (& asks me for password like it's supposed to) but still, no sleep. it wakes itself up & reboots in about 20 seconds. UPDATE: decided to fix my speedstep/turboboost in the meanwhile & followed all of your steps / deleted NullCPUPowerManagment.kext - now sleep works as well. Again, Gothic, killer guide!!!!!!
  10. [GUIDE] OS X Lion on ThinkPad W520

    tried it again. it did prompt me for a password this time. still restarts after about 15-20 seconds of going to "sleep". any ideas?

    S / L / E looks like this....

    Hey Gothic, thanks again for an excellent guide! I used your DSDT.aml at the end of your post. Worked like a charm. ScrLk/Pause for brightness = awesome! Play/pause/skip buttons work, etc. I had an issue with getting the comp to sleep. I've followed everything in "Now click "Patch" -> "open ..." and apply the EHCI Fix from SandyBridge Patch folder (for working sleep). The next thing you must manually change to avoid the CMOS-reset (in my case I had to change one number to a "0"): http://www.insanelym...howtopic=174396 This line: 0x00, / / ​​Alignment Now save it again "Compile" and "save AML as..." in /Extra as DSDT.aml. In Terminal type following to avoid CMOS checksum problem: sudo cp -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext.orig (In case something should go wrong) sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x8b\x45\xc8\x39\x45\xcc\x74\x0b|\x8b\x45\xc8\x39\x45\xcc\xeb\x0b|; s|\x8b\x45\xb4\x39\x45\xb8\x74\x08|\x8b\x45\xb4\x39\x45\xb8\xeb\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC " but when I hit FN+F4, the comp starts going to sleep (the power button blinks) & in about 40 seconds, the computer restarts. I've double checked by extracting my current DSDT & verifying: " Device ( RTC ) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00")) Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate () { IO (Decode16, 0x0070, // Range Minimum 0x0070, // Range Maximum 0x00, // Alignment 0x02, // Length ) }) } "..... mine is Device (RTC) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00")) Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate () { IO (Decode16, 0x0070, // Range Minimum 0x0070, // Range Maximum 0x00, // Alignment 0x02, // Length ) }) } They look identical. What do you think may be the problem? Oh, PS: the second line of terminal sudo code didn't prompt me for a password, is that normal?

    YES, YES, YES. Gothic, I love you (no homo) =) i tried messing with the google translated version last night & decided there were way too many variables (between me being a newb & some communication getting lost in translation) Will be giving this a try later tonight!
  14. фишка была в MBR partition. бутает как надо. заказал Atheros AR9285. теперь только бы brightness починить и еще хотелось бы проверить работает ли turbo-boost.
  15. Не работает: запуск без диска, яркость экрана, sleep/hibernate, wi-fi. Метод поставления: в BIOS поменял "Nvidia Optimus" на "Discrete Graphics". Потом... iAtkos L2 (или L1 + Apple Update) и кексты из [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Бутает только с помощью диска LionBoot. Сам слишком нуб чтобы разобраться. Пожалуйста помогите (особенно что сделать чтобы комп запускался без LionBoot).
