I'll upload updated bioses today when back to home and try to check your dumps too. To much deadlines on job in this month

 

(mostly) cool and monitor preferences are bound to Alt/Opt + ScrLk :-)

 

Decreasing the brightness with ScrLk works, while increasing with Pause does not, any idea?

 

You already has been able to build a current (1.44) BIOS for the T410 with disabled whitelist for Wifi and WAN?

 

And finally, did you found some time to look into the logs I attached in post #209 to eventually give me a hint how to get working the sound with speakers?

 

 

Thanks a lot for your brilliant work,

 

Yeah. Default clover installation is little bit slower than Chameleon because of its nature. Clover creates real EFI enviroment for OSX, chameleon just leave some tables and signs that EFI was loaded successfully and then boot OSX thats why it much faster...

 

And good news about clover and slow resolution modes. Currently I'm able to use higher than 1024*768 boot screen resolution, in my case its 1920*1200 for external display. Didn't have time to test it with common resolutions like 1366*768/1600*900/1920*1080 (maybe some different ones too) for Lenovo screens.

 

Hope to release cClover config update this weekend

 

Installed Clover today. Everything's fine, but it's loading much longer, than Chameleon (I mean bootloader itself, not OSX). Is this OK or i did something wrong? =)

Brightness controls is binded to ScrLk/Pause by VoodooPS2. Its impossible to bind Fn+Home/End to do this because this combo doesn't generate any key codes and talk with bios WMI features only available from Windows, so we can't use it at all...

 

About speedstep and boost - see in boot log text like AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement success and Turbo Ratios 0035. First one is for speedster, second is for boost. OSX doesn't show boots ratios in monitoring software.

 

Thanks, sadly ScrLk/Pause doesnt work for me either, but the applications "ScreenDimmer" and "Shades" (shades only sometimes). They dont look like they adjust the brightness the same way though.

 

As far as the boot log text, i didnt know where to look. But i went into the system log queries and found the following (relevant) entries:

 

 

11/28/12 11:36:05.000 PM kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: Turbo Ratios 1169

11/28/12 11:36:05.000 PM kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: (built 00:59:42 Aug 25 2012) initialization complete

11/28/12 11:36:05.000 PM kernel[0]: AppleIntelE1000e(Info): changing MTU from 0 to 1500

11/28/12 11:36:05.000 PM kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient: ready

 

Also maybe something of note, i have sound assertion crapping all over the log file, like this:

 

11/29/12 12:08:08.000 AM kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAWidget at line 3095

Can't say "little bit", but much slower =) I have UEFI motherboard at home, so don't you know if it faster on UEFI MoBos?

Speedstep and boots works in your case

 

About brightness... easiest way to check it go to system preferences - displays and see if brightness slider exist. If not - keys will not control it.

 

Screen brightness depends on two things in Lenovos

 

PNLF device in dsdt

 

and strings in PCI0-PEG-VID devices in section DSM

 

"AAPL,backlight-control",
						    Buffer (0x04)
						    {
							    0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
						    },
						    "@0,backlight-control",
						    Buffer (0x04)
						    {
							    0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
						    },

On UEFI motherboards its much faster cause it doesn't use some emulation layer stuff to make some dummy EFI for OSX

 

And also there is silent boot option available for clover when it boot osx without entering GUI

Yes, this should be enough for brightness. And you got slider in display prefs?

 

Could you post your ioregestry explorer dump here?

No unfortunately i have never seen the slider in display prefs.

 

I am using clover boot loader and I have that DSDT.aml in /EFI/ACPI/PATCHED/ as well as /Extra

 

Is there anyway i can verify that is the DSDT.aml that is being used? When i tried using different ones, i just renamed them to something like DSDT1.aml and iput them in the /EFI/ACPI/PATCHED folder. Then in the boot options of clover, i changed the name of the DSDT.aml, it was only for that boot as the name setting wouldnt persist through reboot. It always affected boot = crashed, or didnt work, so it seemed like my setting change was being used.

 

That seemed the best way to try different dsdt files without hosing the boot.

 

That said, assuming that is the DSDT being used, i am unsure why i dont see the slider.

No slider -> wrong dsdt used in boot loader. You need proper config for clover to get GPU working well with brightness settings

Test this AppleHDA, changed some nodes configs in it. Possible it should help. If not I can try to change one more thing

MiniDock Series 3 audio outputs...

 

Dealing with t410 had I possible figure out what two additional audio ports listed in linux dump

 

post-120553-0-25891900-1354203631_thumb.png

 

This two ports is located on Lenovo mini Dock 3 or soooo... I think its possible to get it working well with auto detection disabled for output but cant test it without proper hardware

 

 

Clover boot resolution patch

 

works fine with 1920*1080, i'll test 1600*900 and 1366*768 tomorrow

As it turned out, my MB cannot boot from EFI partition of GPT-formatted drives. Only from EFI partition of MBR or hybrid. Maybe it fixed on new "BIOS" versions, but i don't want to update because of hackintosh boot problems (as people say on this forum).

So, i stay on Chimera =)

Hi joshhh,

 

thanks a lot for the answer.

 

Test this AppleHDA, changed some nodes configs in it. Possible it should help. If not I can try to change one more thing

Unfortunately it doesn't work, with this AppleHDA I don't get any audio at all (volume is grayed out).

 

 

I figured out, that the "AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHDA" are quite different, the mostly working version is "1636848 12 Jul 23:21" while the not working version you attached says "830120 20 Aug 02:11".

 

The version.plist seems to be the same:

 

BuildVersion: 7

CFBundleVersion: 2.3.1f2

SourceVersion: 231004002000000

 

Any Idea? And is there s.th. I can modify by my self to get it working?

Hi joshhh,

 

thank you very much for your patience.

 

ohh its Lion version=) check it tomorrow with same changes as for ML ands attach it
well, I have 10.7.5 installed I think this is Lion?

 

And the AppleHDA that is working with headphones comes from the Lion-directory in your "T410-files" available in the first post.

 

 

A quick look in the zip-files tells me that I'm using the correct version and that you probably attached the ML version (not too bad, because if a ML USB-Install-stick will be available, I will buy it and perhaps will upgrade to 10.8):

 

 

$ ll OSX\ 10.6\ Snow\ Leopard/System-Library-Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/

2074024 3 Sep 20:37 AppleHDA

 

$ ll OSX\ 10.7\ Lion/System-Library-Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/

1636848 12 Jul 23:21 AppleHDA

 

$ ll OSX\ 10.8\ Mountain\ Lion/System-Library-Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/

830120 25 Aug 00:28 AppleHDA

 

 

 

PS: Sorry for the inconvenience, I thought that you still had "in memory" about which system I was speaking. In future I just will add:

"I've installed Lion on my T410 i7 with NVidia/256 and it works mostly perfect. Lion is 10.7.5 and BIOS is updated to the latest original-lenovo 1.44."

Hi all,

 

I'm probably wrong but is the battery indicator meant to be working? (I asked before sorry)

Everything else seems ok.

 

(I know built-in wifi doesn't)

 

Also I am thinking of using eSata cable for additional drive, will I have issues (will need to buy enclosure) ?

 

Thanks!

in the very first post it says that both should work OOB. And for my T410 with 10.7.5 I can confirm that.

 

On the other hand, sound also should work, but it does not work for me. So if you do not have the exact same machine with same BIOS and same OS, your results may differ, but anyway I would recheck the installation again.

no, it seems that I can't :-(

 

I was looking in the differences of the two patched AppleHDA's for 10.8, I found out that the MacOS/AppleHDA-binaries are different and that Joshhh changed two "NodeIDs" in the compressed Resources/Platforms.xml.

 

But I have no clue what was patched in the MacOS/AppleHDA and in addition there is no Resources/Platforms.xml.zlib in the 10.7 kext that could be changed.

 

I even was not able to determine, from where Joshhh got the information about the pin-layout for input-/output channels.

 

So I just have to wait (or always attach headphones/speakers) : -)

Battery indication works great with VoodooBattery and eSata works great too but eSata port in OSX doesn't work well with hot-plug. If OSX booted and you connect esata drive it gets detected, but if you unmount in and change physical disk in esata dock OSX won't show it until reboot

Here is "fixed" AppleHDA for Lion. If it won't help I can try to 1) unpair speakers-headphones in sound config - easy fix 2) try to change something else in config - needs deeper analysis

I've seen that you added a "Platforms.xml" to the resources-directory, unfortunately it does not change anything either.

 

 

What do you mean with "unpair speakers-headphones in sound config" and how is it done?

 

If I go to the Audio-Preferences, I see on the "Output"-tab, that I have "Name: Internal Speakers, Typ: Integriert" (funny it's mixed German and English language), if I plug in my headphones, it changes to "Name: Headphones, Typ: Integriert" and the audio is played.

 

On the "Input"-tab I have "Line In" (not tested) and "Internal microphone" which is working if I select it.

 

 

On my old T60 with SL I had running the VoodooHDA, but I had several problems with it, like KPs and non-working audio after resume, so I do not want to try this again.

 

Does it make any difference that I am using the latest 1.44 BIOS on my T410, would it make sense to downgrade to your patched 1.43-version?

 

Is there a way to get audio working without patching the AppleHDA and just changing the DSDT for the laptop?

First off, thanks for all the hard work Joshhh. ML works well on my T510.

 

Could anyone confirm that HDMI functions correctly? Because I can get the video output works but not for audio output.

In the system->sound->output panel, there is only internal speakers found.

Thanks

My T410 (2522-CTO) has some problem after update to 10.8.2. I've follow this post:

 

Install Update and rollback AppleACPIPlatform and AppleHDA before reboot

 

And this thread (Step 4):

http://lifehacker.co...ng-a-hackintosh

 

Now it works well as 10.8. Many thanks to Joshhn, you've bring Mac OS X to my Lap :) )

still no luck :-(

 

Headphones and Internal Speakers now are seperated in the Audio-prefs, if I select "Headphones" I get sound through them, if I select "Internal Speakers" I get nothing anymore.

 

What about others on their T410, do they get audio through the internal speakers?

      Extras
       
      - FullHD 1920x1080 display upgrade: 
      Replaced with AU Optronics B140HAN01.1 30pin eDP (B140HAN01.2 and B140HAN01.3 also compatible).
      Apparently same screen as Dell Latitude E6440, E7440, Lenovo Ideapad U430 and E129.
       
      - CPU upgrade:
      Replaced the stock Intel Core i5 4300M 2.6Ghz (3.3Ghz turbo) 6M cache with Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4Ghz (3.4Ghz turbo) 6MB.
      I initially had problems with overheating. The processor ran at full load above 90 degrees.
      After using a quality thermal paste I can work between 70 and 80 degrees.
      Acceptable taking into consideration that the new processor has 47TDP versus 37TDP which is recommended.
      I also had no problem consuming the battery while charging. The original 65W source seems to have figured out.
       
      - Touchpad upgrade:
      Replaced the stock with T460 touchpad.
      This is serious: you have to do it! It should be stock. Touchpad with precision and absurd quality!
      Just do it!
       
      - RAM upgrade:
      16GB (2x8GB). No mistery here. Just upgade.
       
      - Wireless upgrade:
      Previously I have the DW1560 working almost perfectly, now replaced with BCM94360CS2 that is full native supported. 
      More info below.
       
      Todo
       
      - Make DP audio work.
      - Make Card Reader work.
      - Make trackpad appear in System Preferences
      - Make Instant Hotspot work.
       
       
      What you need to install

      - Running install of macOS
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger
      - macOS Catalina install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader

      Download the CloverEFI from official repository (used 5097) and install only with these options on "Install macOS Catalina":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - AudioDxe (Just to have nice sound on boot)
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - FSInject (I still don't know if it's really necessary)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - ApfsDriverLoader (Support to APFS partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - VBoxHfs (Support HFS/HFS+ partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - Memory fix drivers - AptioMemoryFix (Fix the memory management of de UEFI/BIOS)
       
      FileVault 2
       
      If you plan to use FileVault 2, you need to download additional drivers, since what comes with Clover is not up to date and use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.
      Follow instructions bellow:
       
      From current Clover installation, check these options to USB keyboard/mouse work on password screen:
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbKbDxe
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbMouseDxe
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      Download the versions 2.1.0 and 2.0.9 of AppleSupportPkg from: https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases
      We need the last version of AppleGenericInput.efi that is inside 2.1.0 and last version of AppleUiSupport.efi that is inside 2.0.9.
      OR download attached bellow.
       
      Put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
       
      That's it! FileVault 2 will work without problems.
       
       

       
       
      Make things works
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.6.2.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Copy the Clover Configurator to flash drive because you will need later.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC from here. I used all Kexts and UEFI driver (put VirutalSmc.efi inside /Volumes/EFI/EFI/drivers/UEFI/) from version 1.0.8 (If you followed the steps to enable FileVault 2 above, skip to the next item).
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.8.
      - Download the VoodooPS2Controller.kext from here. I used version 2.0.4.
      - Download the IntelMausi.kext from here. I used the version 1.0.2.
      - Download the VoodooHDA.kext from here. I used the version 2.9.2. (Need to turn up the volume on Info.plist, more instructions below)
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.3.
      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
       
      Important! If you are coming from my previous Mojave guide, please note that I am using some kexts from other repositories / authors.
       
       
      Audio volume adjustment
       
      - Open the Info.plist inside VoodooHDA.kext/Contents/ with TextEdit.app or any text editor of your choice.
      - Change:
      <key>PCM</key> <integer>90</integer> to:
      <key>PCM</key> <integer>140</integer> Or, download the versions 2.9.2 attached bellow.
       
       
      Keyboard swap Command with Option (optional)
       
      - If you prefer, you can swap Command and Option keys, to map Win Key - Command and Alt - Option.
      - Change /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/OEM/S400CA/UEFI/kexts/10.15/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist:
      <key>Swap command and option</key> <true/> to:
      <key>Swap command and option</key> <false/> Or, download the version 2.0.4 already adjusted attached bellow.
       
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM94360CS2 + M2 NGFF adapter)
       
      Recently I replaced the DW1560 with BCM94360CS2. Now I have fully wireless and bluetooth working (including Instant Hotspot) without any kexts.
       
      See: 
       
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (Ask on UEFI hack forums over there to someone patch for you. Every dump is unique, so mine don't work to you.);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 2.0.3. (To enable Wireless)
      - Download the BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext from here. I used the version 2019-10-17. (To enable Bluetooth)
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.4. (To enable Handoff and Continuity)
       
      Keep in mind that the bluetooth kexts are currently in development and the official releases will be available in future in the repository: https://github.com/acidanthera/BrcmPatchRAM/releases
       
       
      Now you can start the installation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW)

      Eject the flash drive.
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition of internal disk to /Library/Extensions and make kext cache, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (March 2020) Updated to Clover r5105 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
