Guys, mind testing this please?

Please remove your AppleACPIPlatform roll back (which comes from 10.6.2, are you kidding me?) and install the one enclosed in the archive, it's a genuine one from 10.8.5. I've patched your EC RAM registers to support new ACPI interpreter and thus you no longer require the rollback for battery to work properly. This will make the test in regards to shutdown more cleaner!


I basically split your registers into 8 bit ones down from 16, 32 and 128. Then rejoined them by appropriate methods so that the integrity would remain. Only those registers that are actually used in ACPI were changed:

 

                    Field (ECOR, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve)
                    {
                                Offset (0xA0), 
                        SBR1,   8,

well - my latest bundle posted had us using ErmaC's patch for AppleACPIPlatform (v1.7) (10.8.4 i believe?) + Rehabmans battery stuff.

i switched over this newer version ACPI when i found that rehabmans AppleSmartBatteryManager was found to work with DSDT unchanged. 

previously yes was using a very old snow leopard 1.3.5 ACPIPlatform since VoodooBattery required it.

 

but sure, i will implement/test your package. hang on.

Has nothing to do with what you were testing. If you want this error gone patch AppleSMC binary

4885c075 10488d3d 7d50 to 4885c0eb 6e488d3d 7d50, this will make it fall back to old mode right away without trying the new one. This error is even present on genuine Apple hardware.

It seems _BIF is not properly parsed. The easiest way to debug would be to compile the debug version of the kext. 

Also I still see you haven't disabled the "UseExtraBatteryInformation" key .. your laptop doesn't have a register to store cycle count as far as I can see, so approximation has to happen.. 

Please install this: http://puu.sh/4BttQ.zip

And see Console for errors..

Yeah, pretty much _BIF method fails to be evaluated.. gonna look into that.

 AppleSmartBatteryManager::getBatteryBIF called
 AppleSmartBatteryManager::getBatteryBIF: validateObject return 0x0
 AppleSmartBatteryManager::getBatteryBIF: evaluateObject error 0xe00002bc

Ok, i've simplified the thing for testing a little bit.. so lets see if it works: http://puu.sh/4BvBq.zip

                    Method (GBIF, 3, NotSerialized)
                    {
                        Acquire (BATM, 0xFFFF)
                        If (Arg2)
                        {
                            Store (B1B2 (SBB1, SBB2), Local7)
                            ShiftRight (Local7, 0x0F, Local7)
                            XOr (Local7, One, Index (Arg1, Zero))                 // Power Units 
                            Store (B1B2 (SBD1, SBD2), Index (Arg1, One))          // Design Capacity
                            Store (B1B2 (SBF1, SBF2), Index (Arg1, 0x02))         // Last Full Charge Capacity
                            Store (B1B2 (SBDA, SBDB), Index (Arg1, 0x04))         // Design Voltage
                            Divide (B1B2 (SBF1, SBF2), 0x14, Local2, Index (Arg1, 0x05)) // Design Capacity of Warning
                            Divide (0x00030D40, B1B2 (SBDA, SBDB), Local2, Index (Arg1, 0x06)) // Design Capacity of Low
                            Store (B1B2 (SBD1, SBD2), Index (Arg1, 0x09))         // Model Number
                            Store (B1B2 (SBS1, SBS2), Local0)
                            Name (SERN, Buffer (0x06)
                            {
                                "     "
                            })
                            Store (0x04, Local2)
                            While (Local0)
                            {
                                Divide (Local0, 0x0A, Local1, Local0)
                                Add (Local1, 0x30, Index (SERN, Local2))
                                Decrement (Local2)
                            }
 
                            Store (SERN, Index (Arg1, 0x0A))                      // Serial Number
                            Store (B1B4 (SBC1, SBC2, SBC3, SBC4), Index (Arg1, 0x0B)) // Battery Type
                            Store (L1L4 (SBM1, SBM2, SBM3, SBM4), Index (Arg1, 0x0C)) // OEM Information
                        }
                        Else
                        {
                            Store (Ones, Index (Arg1, One))
                            Store (Zero, Index (Arg1, 0x05))
                            Store (Zero, Index (Arg1, 0x06))

                        }
 
                        Release (BATM)
                        Return (Arg1)
                    }

Edit: 

ok I see the issue ...

 

Store (SBDN, Index (Arg1, 0x09))

I forgot to split the register and mistakenly used design capacity register there!! Gonna fix that now!

 

Edit2:

 

done.. please give this a test - > http://puu.sh/4BvRa.zip

What a stubborn piece of code.. let's try the simplified one, with model number registers properly coded in:

http://puu.sh/4BxU3.zip


If it fails to evaluate _BIF again we are just going brutal for sakes of testing - not using any registers what so ever, just defining values based on the screenshots you had shown. It's only for the sakes of testing whether the issue is inside the algo in general or it's register fault (my fault, hehe).

http://puu.sh/4Byi2.zip

 

 

                        If (Arg2)
                        {
                            Store (0x00, Index (Arg1, 0x00))
                            Store (0xb9a0, Index (Arg1, 0x01))
                            Store (0xa474, Index (Arg1, 0x02))
                            Store (0x2a30, Index (Arg1, 0x04))
                            Store (0x839, Index (Arg1, 0x05))
                            Store (0xc8, Index (Arg1, 0x06))
                            Store ("45N1001", Index (Arg1, 0x09))
                            Store ("17832", Index (Arg1, 0x0A))
                            Store ("LION", Index (Arg1, 0x0B))
                            Store ("SANYO", Index (Arg1, 0x0C))
                        }

If you want this error gone patch AppleSMC binary

replace 4885c075 10488d3d 7d50 to 4885c0eb 6e488d3d 7d50,

this will make it fall back to old mode right away without trying the new one.

This error is even present on genuine Apple hardware.

sorry could you please give more detail to do so

 

i thought about add this in clover config

Replace

but not sure

tluck, 

give this a shot.. I have avoided using L1L4 and B1B4 for now, let's see if plain 8 to 16 bit registers would work.

It is hard coded for sakes of testing, as I've said already. I've purposely replaced every B1B4 and L1L4 conversions with hardcoded strings to see if it ends up working. But I fail to see how this is possible that it is reporting current state as capacity of warning.. unless it reads the values from SBFC and dividing it by 0x14 ends up lower as the actual current capacity reported from _BST.. 

This Lenovo unit is a mess :S

ok. we have another break through of sorts. on top of the shutdown hang mixup,  a further rewrite of the DSDT by TimeWalker75a has provided a way to eliminate the ACPIPlatform rollback - so we can have one less custom kext to deal with.

 

Note: Rehabman updated and renamed AppleSmartBatteryManager to ACPIBatteryManager.kext so it does not conflict with the native one. anyway ... Huge thanks to Timewalker75a on helping making the T420 practically a perfect Hack!

 

will repackage and post ASAP with new DSDT so hang on and wait if you have not upgraded to the bundle from yesterday.

limited testing so far points toward goodness on dsdt shutdown fix. seems very consistent when i only have 1 disk.

 

but i have an esata and usb3 PCI express. And these extra disks seem to introduce same old random problem.

Good to know, hope it's fixed for good!

What is the custom ssdt that you were referring to in Clover's thread that gives you more P-States on your i5? I'm wondering because I'm not really happy about how things are on my i3.. I get 8 11 15 19 and 22 (whilst the highest one should be 23, really). Care to share what was the origin of that ssdt or just the table itself?

just posted Clover b2165 for T420 at post #397

 

Update 29-Sep-2013

  • Revised DSDT (again!)
    • for Shutdown hang (thanks to TimeWalker75a)
    • for native AppleACPIPlatform kext - no need to rollback or patch this kext - use unmodified v1.8 from 10.8.5
  • Updated Clover to b2165
    • minor tweaks/refinements to config.plist (e.g. dont think darkwake is needed anymore)
    • has 2 OEM configs - 1 for high-res and 1 for low-res
    • Note: recommend use of ssdt.aml if it fits your cpu - seems to get a bit more out turbo mode (get 32x at times instead of 30x with just Clover Generate P/C states)
  • Updated FakeSMC
    • includes modified ACPI/Plugin Info.plist to remove DISABLED features so FAN speed shows up in HWMonitor (with stock AppleACPIPlatform.kext )

verhleinix was the one who created the ssdt.aml table. I recall he may have used revo girls ssdtPRgen script? the ssdt.aml is in the clover bundle i posted in             #397            .

Hi tluck,

the script is based on RevoGirl's script modified for i-core mobile processors found at tony's side.

Update - if you downloaded the zip bundle before now.... please redo it! I found a mistake in the DSDT.

 

(re-)posted Clover b2165 for T420 at post #397

 

Update 30-Sep-2013

  • Revised DSDT (again!)
    • for Shutdown hang (thanks to TimeWalker75a)
    • for native AppleACPIPlatform kext - no need to rollback or patch this kext - use unmodified v1.8 from 10.8.5
  • Updated Clover to b2165
    • minor tweaks/refinements to config.plist (e.g. dont think darkwake is needed anymore)
    • has 2 OEM configs - 1 for high-res and 1 for low-res
    • Note: recommend use of ssdt.aml if it fits your cpu - seems to get a bit more out turbo mode (get 32x at times instead of 30x with just Clover Generate P/C states)
  • Updated FakeSMC
    • includes modified ACPI/Plugin Info.plist to remove DISABLED features so FAN speed shows up in HWMonitor (with stock AppleACPIPlatform.kext )

      - First version.
       
      What works and what does not
       
      - Processor: Intel Core i5-4300M ->  Work. All SpeedStep stages.
      - Video Card: Intel HD4600 ->  Work. QE/CI and Metal.
      - Chipset: Intel QM87 ->  Work.
      - Mini DisplayPort ->  Work. But no audio, yet.
      - VGA ->  Not work. Normal.
      - Audio: ALC292 ->  Work.

      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) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - Choose the flash drive (white icon).
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install
       
      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
       
      Choose the internal disk (gray hdd icon) if not already selected.

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.

       

      Post installation
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to make the system disk bootable.

      Open the Clover Configurator from flash drive that you copied before.

      Mount and open the flash drive EFI partition. (Inside Clover Configurator, Mount EFI -> Select flash drive in Efi Partitions list -> Mount Partition -> Open Partition)
       
      Copy the EFI folder to desktop.
       
      Go back to Clover Configurator, unmount the EFI partition of the flash drive and mount and open the EFI partition of internal disk.
       
      Move the EFI folder from Desktop to EFI partition of the internal disk.
       
      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.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      System Updates
       
      10.15.1
       
      Updated without changing or updating anything.
       

       
       
      10.15.2
       
      Before install, update the following kexts:
      - VirtualSMC.kext and all kexts and VirtualSmc.efi. I used version 1.0.9.
      - Lilu.kext. I used version 1.4.0.
      - WhateverGreen.kext. I used version 1.3.5.
      - AppleALC.kext. I used version 1.4.4.
      - VoodooPS2Controller.kext. I used version 2.1.0.
      (all download links above)
       
      Download the latest CLOVERX64.efi.zip build. I used version 5100.
      Mount EFI partition and unzip to:
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi (rename the copy of CLOVERX64.efi to BOOTX64.efi
       
      Install update. Will reboot at least four time.
       
       

      And last but not least

      The following files exist on the github:
       
      a) Clover.app-v1.11-5100.zip
      b) Clover_v2.5k_r5100.pkg
      c) CloverISO-5100.tar.lzma
      d) CloverV2-5100.zip
      e) CLOVERX64.efi.zip
       
       
      Is (a) for installing as an app on OSX? What is it for?
       
      What is (b) for, the .pkg? Not exactly familiar with .pkg. I've seen it used in UNIX, but I believe it's also a PKG format for installing packages on OSX. So, what is the difference between this (b), and (a)? (a) is labeled v1.11-5100, while (b) is labeled v2.5k_r5100.
      (c) contains only this file, Clover-v2.5k-5100-X64.iso, which I assume is a pre-bootloader.
      (d) looks like the NON ISO version, to build an ISO?
      (e) Contains CLOVERX64.efi, which is the same CloverX64.efi for Clover.app-v1.11-5100 and CloverV2-5100.zip
       
      Thanks for any explanations.

      Hi all, I have been using an x240 thinkpad for more than 2 months as hackintosh and it is very stable. As of now I am in Catalina 10.15.1 and it’s running great until I updated it to the new clover build r5100. My laptop won’t automatically sleep when I close the lid down now. I reverted back to 5099 and close-lid automatic sleep works. I don’t know what caused the problem but I think 5100 fixed a dsdt patching of some sort that that conflicted with my config plist? Thanks in advance!
