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 )

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.

      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger
      - macOS Mojave 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\ .app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader

      Download the RehabMan's CloverEFI fork (used 4701) and install with this options on "Install macOS Mojave":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - ApfsDriverLoader-64
      - UEFI Drivers - AptioMemoryFix64


       
       
      Make things works

      Will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop.
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
                    If you have modded BIOS with Advanced Menu and enabled 128MB DRAM-prealloc use 128MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
                    If no, then use 32MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.3.2.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the FakeSMC.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0915.
      - Download the VoodooPS2Controller.kext from here. I used version 2018-1008.
      - Download the IntelMausiEthernet.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1031.

      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 (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      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 /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.9.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation 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.
       
      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.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      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 install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the config.plist inside your destination disk EFI parittion with config.plist inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.
       
      Last step
       
      Copy all Kexts from flash drive to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       

       
      And last but not least
