  1. @Blaggah yeah you will need SSDT-PNLF for brightness
  2. sorry. i just updated the zip (now) to have the latest files. so maybe you should pull it down again.
  3. @Blaggah this thread guide refers to this file repo: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover - cloning your macOS HD is a great approach. i just did that very thing for my 2 systems to get them in sync. each system has is own folder for their specific config files, ACPI, kexts - CLOVER/OEM/<board_id>/... - so everything works on the X1 but the audio? what is the audio codec? AppleALC supports so many codecs now but the config.plist file may be setting an invalid layout.
  4. the more recent Whatevergreen replaces AppleBacklightInjector. - you need to make sure the _UID in SSDT-PNLF.aml is set to 16 (0x10) vs 10 (0xA) - remove AppleBacklightInjector.kext - remove levels patch in config.plist - so it wont change level range for 0-1000
  5. the github repo is up to date for latest EFI (clover and kexts), but i would look at the config.plist in DSDT.T470 by @kolodzieski to be the most current for 10.14

    if you using the SSDT-T420-PS2K-keys.aml (default) then the F1-F12 are remapped to apple functions like F1/F2 are brightness, F10/F11/F12 are audio. F8 turns on/off trackpad. not sure about blurryness?

    @namisloc - odd i saw the same thing on Sierra . but installed the final Sierra Security patch and somehow the trackpad started showing up.

    same with me.
  9. sorry. i just don't have a box to test and verify the configs anymore. but yeah - there are about 18 patches in config.list related to SKL/Gfx and AppleHDA that are now obsolete since they are handled by the new AppleALC and Whatevergreen kexts. moving from 10 to 16 for PNLF UID - is good to be consistent with RehabMan (and other's) tools. - or using generalized RehabMan's SSDT-PNLF.dsl/aml - may be the best thing... the BackLight Injector function is now handled by WEG as are the memory patches etc. @kolodzieski try removing the kextunload/kextload lines from your /etc/rc.sleep and /etc/rc.wake scripts - or remove these as they may not be needed anymore. should not need to unload VoodooPS for sleep!?

    @leaddonkey - get these kext from the T460 repo vs T420 - these 4 kext may make it work: FakePCIID.kext FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext BrcmPatchRAM2.kext BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext @tonyyang123 - the HD3000 kexts are in the kext/10.14 folder just as part of the zip (people asked for them instead having to get them from a High Sierra install) - they don't work right fully unless you put them in /S/L/E in my experience. so having these kexts duplicated in ESP is ok - the ones in OS /S/L/E should be used
  11. @nijhawank yeah you should move towards Whatevergreen.kext - and the recent 1.2.5 version adds support for backlight and which may conflict with AppleBacklightInjector.kext. the kext patch above sets the max brightness from value 1388 (0x56C) to 1000 (0x3E8) - not sure why i did that?! so you can remove that patch. change UID from 10 to 16 in SSDT-PNLF - there is the F16Txxxx profile in WEG.kext to do backlight. remove the AppleBacklightInjector kext

    @alcheng3344 did you properly install the HD3000 in /S/L/E? if not you may not have fully accelerated graphics QE/CI with Mojave @namisloc - you need to see if the VoodooPS2 kexts are loading. run: $ kextstat|grep voodoo 59 2 0xffffff7f82de1000 0xb000 0xb000 org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Controller (1.9.2) 39822203-AB99-38FA-85DB-A83BA02A60CA <11 7 5 4 3 1> 87 0 0xffffff7f82e0f000 0x6000 0x6000 org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Keyboard (1.9.2) 3D5B784B-4D8C-3838-BD2F-3AB5E20742A9 <59 48 15 7 6 5 4 3 1> 88 0 0xffffff7f82e15000 0xc000 0xc000 org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Trackpad (1.9.2) E616F856-B251-31D5-8A8F-767E322E1C24 <59 48 15 7 6 5 4 3 1> should see 3 items if good, then check ioreg: $ ioreg -l -w0|sed -n "/o ApplePS2SynapticsTouchPad/,/RM,Build/p" should look like this: | | +-o ApplePS2SynapticsTouchPad <class ApplePS2SynapticsTouchPad, id 0x10000028d, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (32 ms), retain 10> | | | { | | | "StickyMultiFingerScrolling" = No | | | "UnitsPerMMX" = 50 | | | "DisableZoneBottom" = 4200 | | | "HIDPointerConvertAbsolute" = <00> | | | "IOProviderClass" = "ApplePS2MouseDevice" | | | "HIDScrollResolution" = 52428800 | | | "MomentumScrollTimer" = 10000000 @leaddonkey did your wifi work before you upgraded from el cap to high sierra? if so, then maybe missing a kext? @Dabman1988 moving to Mojave is almost as easy as upgrading from Sierra to HighSierra. but i dont know about nvidia ? other than to recommend to disable it. 1) update your ESP with a recent version 2) get your current system running with a mojave config.plist which essentially means you change the model from MPB8,1 to MPB9,1. 3) install Mojave 4) on the post install side you need to install the HD3000 in /S/L/E. all of this is outlined in the Guide.
  13. i have a Dell M4800 with "switchable" graphics - HD 4600 + AMD 5100. with the IGPU HD 4600, the laptop works great but i cant use the HDMI (only LCD) and with AMD - the reverse is true. i was wondering if anyone has figured out a way to use both. say use IGPU - single buffer to power LCD and then have AMD power the external ports? anyway just looking for ideas. thanks.

    @namisloc what model laptop do you have? what version macOS? did you put all the zip contents into the ESP as is?

    what model do yo have? if you read the guide, you will see the note: Enable (turn on) Bluetooth so the green light is showing on the LCD bezel (do from Windows or Ubuntu). Also make sure the side switch is set to green too! on trackpad - use the apple system prefs to turn that feature on under trackpad - called tap to click
