Requires kext and DSDT edits. Follow instructions in post #48.

 

Upgrading OS X point version will depend on your procedure for installing... Many updates contain changes to kexts you may have patched, and thus will be overwritten.

Thanx for the info. If i create a DSDT now would that affect my current running mavericks instance. Is there a possibility to create a DSDT only for the brightness fix. Any guide to create DSDT would be a real help.

Not sure I understand the question. The whole idea of patching DSDT is to "affect... current running mavericks instance", right? The idea being to fix backlight control.

 

Basic instructions for using MaciASL are provided at my github link for my laptop repo (first link in post #48). Have you read it yet?

My question was can i create a DSDT only to fix the brightness issue or would i have to create a DSDT to configure for the entire system. My current Mavericks (10.9.0) installation works with out any DSDT. I did try to use a close DSDT to my machine config but i failed to boot so was not sure how to create it

Not true. BIOS is providing native OEM DSDT. A DSDT, whether patched or not, is always in play.

@Rehab,

    I have a completely working snappy system. Thank you so much for all your help. I would like to know how to enable iPad charging using the USB ports and suddenly my camera stop working for FaceTime. Any help on this

hi Uoc Nguyen, thanks for your great effort.

 

may i ask 2 questions,

 

1. is this installation under UEFI+GPT or Legacy+MBR?

 

2. how do you deal with the wireless card finally? is a replacement of wifi card possible? or we can only use a USB-Wireless-Card?

Hi 
 
if you refer to my installation post and relative package, the setup is totally based on UEFI+GPT.
For  the WiFi i use a Linksys ExpressCard based on Broadcom chipset  that work OOB with OSX. I prefer this solution, because i use my system in working environment and i need to use WPA2 Enterprise authentication that is provided by original Apple extensions. Otherwise the USB wifi dongle,often use an external app for wireless discovery and authentication and is recognized by the system like a classic ethernet device.

@eilatuno,

    Could you specify the linksys express card model no and which was the latest supported mac os x OOB

@Demonbane

 

1. I'm using UEFI with GPT partitions.

2. I'm using the USB wifi dongle, as eilatuno said, USB wifi dongle will be use an extra application to scan and authenticate wifi network, it is annoying as you will need to start it up when login and wait for it ready before connect to wifi network, and yes, it is recognized as a wired network (ethernet) in network setting / system. So it you will not able to use AirDrop without force enable it before. I have not used express card yet, but I think it will be better than USB dongle option.

The card is the Linksys WEC 600N, i bought it on ebay at this link http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Cisco-Linksys-WEC600N-Dual-Band-Wireless-N-Ultra-RangePlus-Expresscard-/400344427648 (search on internet for other sources..).

I choose this card because i found a guy on the web with original Macbook Pro out of warranty and with airport broken, that use this card for replacement.

UocNguyen you have sleep working ? My brother has a T430 comes with only HD4000 ( no Nvidia GPU ) resolution 1600x900 and sleep isn't working ( shutdown immediately ). How comes you can get yours to sleep ? I patched the DSDT using Rehabman repo, the DSDT is almost perfect except for the sleep issue, otherwise things are good

Good to see another Vietnamese fella here

Make sure you have properly implemented native power management.

 

Also, make sure you're not dropping an OEM SSDT that is needed (typically... the one with IAOE object is needed, for example).

I have sleep work well. As RehabMan said, you will need to patch ACPI Power management kext and make sure the DSDT section for it is patched also.

The sleep start working since I upgrade to 10.9.3. It was something changed from Apple core / kernel.

Hi  I have a problem with my  laptop Model  Thinkpad T430 2344BMG , I installed OSX mavericks  using   niresh distro maverick usb and  files  from post #1  for 10.9.3  and post #42 for graphics fix   everything work's  but graphics QE/CI  and an USB no.

 

 

I using Chameleon-2.2svn-r2344.pkg  bootloader because clover not show  win 8.1 partition I do not know why. USB working when conect mouse or usb storage but  when connect iDevice  system freeze  in terminal see kernel  panic.

 

USB

 

I tried severals IOUSBFamily.kext  but not works  also  I treid GenericUSBXHCI.kext  for 10.9.4   and  Delete AppleUSBXHCI.kext from stock IOUSBFamily.kext  System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBXHCI.kext   every experiment was unsuccessful   on some cases usb not work's absolutely.

You should follow this guide http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2945-guide-for-enabling-vga-and-hdmi-in-intel-hd4000-gpu/

 

My hex is writing in form of vim + xxd, it is default to 1 word (4 digits) per column. The `0300 6601` is platform id and `01 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 02 00 00` is for LDVS (Laptop built-in display). Depend on version of OSX, you can try: `01 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 02 00 00` or `05 03 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 02 00 00`.

Hi all.

 

I would like to share the results of  mixing my work and work of  other before me on my T430s (2355).

I use the post of UocNguyen as template(Thanks for the work!)

Working:

  • CPU PowerManagement  (SpeedStep enabled using ssdt-gen script and clover states generation option)
  • Intel HD4000 with AppleIntelFrameBufferCapri patched at latest version (10.9.3) to use internal LVDS and external DP port (i read apple removed support for embedded VGA start from 10.8.3 kext, from my tests i'm able to use a VGA monitor while start laptop from docking station with lid closed but there are something bad with EDID probe and with refresh so i think the very big problem is the VGA output use the same channel of internal LCD/LVDS)
  • Audio work with patched AppleHDA (and IOAudioFamily from 10.9.0) Speaker/Headphone/Internal Mic/Mic on headphone/
  • Ethernet work with AppleE1000.kext
  • Trackpoint, touchpad and keyboard work with VoodooPS2
  • Patched Bluetooth kext with support for BCM20702A0
  • USB 3 with GenericUSBXHCI ( Run at 5gbps), all 3 ports are capable to charging an iPad
  • Battery recognized with ACPIbatteryManager
  • WWAN HSPA Working with SIM inserted, modded CellPhoneHelper.kext,IOSerialFamily and modded CCL in /Library/ModemScripts/ (tell me if work!)
  • UEFI boot with latest version of CLOVER
  • Sleep, wake, restart and shutdown fully working (10.9.2 seems to resolve this issue)
  • Keyboard. Multimedia keys: Sleep, Prev / Play / Pause / Next (Brightness control with Fn-F8/F9 not work, mapped in DSDT with Fn-K/P)
  • Windows Installation on other SSD partition run fine with VMware Fusion Bootcamp and directly form choose it in Boot selection menù (when you boot with windows you must restore Clover EFI boot option manually in UEFI BIOS to start osx later, because the Micro$oft Boot loader set itself as primary when start  :yes: )

Additional external device:

* NOT working and know problem:

  • Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Wireless adapter( simply no kext exist for this device....)
  • I tried to install mPCI-E Broadcom WLAN used in my old T420s but it's seems not possible to flash modded bios without external programmer. No success with any other methods like tape pin 20 of mPCI-E or placing in second mPCI-E slot.
  • Card reader (Partially working with VoodooSDHC kext, but sometimes system hangs. I removed the SD reader for using Wifi adapter)
  • Brought video from iTunes doesn't play on LVDS device (LCD display attached on VGA on board doesn't support HDCP)
  • WWAN icon in status bar appear only after sleep/wake cycle :huh:
  • Headphone jack sometimes not work after sleep (it's seems to fixing itself after another sleep/wake cycle :blink:)
  • Headphone Volume control 

 

 

 For install use info from T420 thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only/page-25?do=findComment&comment=1952283

NOTE: need to change the SMBIOS hardware section and CustomUUID to your own hardware.

My pack: https://www.firedrive.com/file/9991150C50684CB7

 

I want to thanks all creators of any components used for this test.

 

PS: sorry for bad english  ;) 

 

why couldn't the battery of my device be natively recognised by ACPIBatteryManager? have you done some kind of DSDT patches for Battery? 

 

and i'm also curious how did you rename all the "VID" to "IGPU"? the patches of Rehabman don't work for me...

 

and in additional, which patches did you do to your DSDT? only the ig-platform-id in graphic part and the layout-id in HDEF?

hi Demonbane

i used some patches found in Rehab repository, especially the Lenovo Patch x220 and t430u(if you see in patches notes, you read the compatibility for other lenovo product, so after a little research i find that many lenovo products share same chipset, components, maybe same motherboard like t430 and t430s).

i copied and pasted only parts those i think need for my config for example HDA, ig-platform, battery and AC, thermal and fan. i've created and tested many DSDT before find the best.

Then i tell you to study a functional DSDT and find/replace the parts who interest you or using the patches on the repository.

 

For example, if you have a T430s (like me) you can use the DSDT parts of T430 with the same specification, or copy and replace the parts you need, like ALC269 (audio) or HD4000 (video) that are used in T430 and T430s model.

thanks bro,

 

did you meet such kind of problem: if the laptop get sleeping, then wake up and reboot, the laptop will stuck at the initial of GUI... i should force the laptop to shutdown by pressing the power button, then the it become normal again... seems there're problems with sleep.

 

PS: i didn't use all your stuffs, because there's problem with the graphic card. the GUI is much larger as the resolution, as the screen is exploded...

Hi

I've encountered this problem with an old version of UEFI firmware.

Update fw and retry, by my experience it solve many kind of problem, like sleep and nvram persistence.

 

For resolution you need to patch framebuffercapri and edit DSDT to reflect your ig-platform.

I have re-apply some new patches from Rehabman and get mixed up many patch for Battery, Sleep / Shutdown ... stuffs from tluck, some section need to specified patch caused it not work like T420.

 

I was keep VID in last DSDT but was changed all to IGPU for apply patches from Rehab repo.

 

For HD4000, it is fine with last patch (with binary patch also), but now I'm using Nvidia most of time as it is only way to make miniDP work well (with Dell external monitor)

 

I will attach my new package soon, included 10.9.x and 10.10. Same DSDT can be used for both OS X versions.

Oh, forgot to mention that since I not used Intel HD4000 so I was not intent to fix QE/CI for it atm. I will rework on it after Apple release the final version (in this month).

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?

      Hello everybody. I need some help in trying to fix native AppleHDA sound on my X230T.
      VoodooHDA works perfectly but without needed HDMI audio channel so I need to try fix my sound in native mode.
       
      AppleALC told us here (README) that in v1.2.1 Added ALC269 layout-id 18 for Thinkpad X230 by Hypereitan. And if it works I didn't need to create this topic.  Unfortunately layout ids 1,2,3,18 and 55 didn't help me to fix sound issue.

      I've also uploaded some screenshots of what I've seen after 5 reboots in a row changing layout ids. Please help me to fix this issue.

      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 - 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.
       
       
      10.15.3
       
      Updated with success without changing anything.
