is there a tutorial you used for the ideapad 720s?

Everything has been self learned since 2017 when I bought this fantastic laptop!

I haven't had a lot of free time these days, but maybe at some point I can make some tutorial!?

I don't know if there are instructions in other forums?

Lenovo Ideapad 720s use Synaptic. Here is Kext if needed.

VoodooI2C.zip

 

You're using VoodooPS2Controller.kext with those I2C kexts, Right?  If so, we both have Synaptics trackpads but they must be different models.  Also did you try the Synaptics I2C kext and it didn't work?

Hey everyone I upgraded to Catalina and everything works so far, but was wondering I saw some people mention about high CPU power in Intel Power Gadget and mine is the same. When my laptop is idle my Power PKG stays at around 3.00. On Mojave it was sitting at 0.50. I compiled the updated CPUFriend for 10.15 and my frequency does go below 1.30GHz like it did before so wonder what is using more power.

 

My dGPU is still disabled through my SSDT-PTSWAK and other aml files so maybe it is because Catalina is still in beta.

Hello all,

I have acceleration with @AsentientBot  fixes and most things work,\. Thanks to these developers my ancient hackbook seems good for another macos at least for now.

 

Only problem is in one of the track pad functions.

 

Almost all features in track pad work except the drag option.

I have checked this option in accessibility pane and used both vodoops2controller.kext and the i2c one posted in response to @mnfesq post couple of replies earlier.

Other features work, except only dragging/drag drop not functional.

Trackpad fully functional with vodoops2 in mojave.

 

Any suggestions/fix for this?

Thanks

Hmmb, different case on NVDA Fermi unfortunately.. -_- that's weird that GeForce, NVD*, IOAccel, IOGraphics, IOSurface, AppleGraphics.. all are loaded but having no acceleration on GT 520M (GF119), no dependencies issue appear on logs though.

Sidecar support on older Macs

renderTimingPixel.png

Not every Mac that supports macOS Catalina will support the Sidecar feature. I could not find any official info, but here are my own findings. There’s an explicit check that the Mac is newer than these models:

 

  • MacBook, MacBook Air: Early 2015

  • MacBook Pro: Mid 2015

  • iMac: Late 2015

  • Mac mini: Late 2014

  • Mac Pro: Late 2013

 

I managed to make Sidecar work with my Mid 2014 MacBook Pro work and iPad Pro. It’s great in terms of minimal lag, but the image quality is bad. I guess the limitation is about hardware HEVC encoding which requires Intel Core 6th gen processoHere’

 

If you need this feature on an older Mac despite low image quality I suggest filing a bug report with Apple. A hidden option to disable such hardware check would be great.

 

That requires disabling System Integrity Protection and editing SidecarCore private framework to exclude your Mac model from the blacklist.

Edit: To enable unsupported Mac and "display" devices use this Terminal command:

defaults write com.apple.sidecar.display AllowAllDevices -bool true; defaults write com.apple.sidecar.display hasShownPref -bool true; open /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Sidecar.prefPane

I had discovered the AllowAllDevices settings before writing this post, but for some reason it did not have effect at first so I resorted to patching the files. Looks like the patching is not needed.

      This guide is a work in progress and will be updated as I refine the installation.
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
       
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec SMBIOS MacModel MacMini 8,1 Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.  
      Installation Steps: To be provided
      See attached EFI and /L/E kexts in EliteDesk.zip archive See installation methodology here See references here  
      What is not working
      Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).  
      What is not tested
      USB c 3.1 port Microphone port  
      What is working
      Everything not mentioned above Sleep / Wake Multiple displays with IGPU graphics acceleration, hot pluggable display ports and DP->DVI adapters USB 3.1 ports Audio (internal speaker and headphone jack) Ethernet Auto-sensing headphone jack automatically switches to internal speaker when headphones removed  
      Known Issues and their solutions
      (Solved. Cycle power on the new display) A new display may not be detected if the new display is plugged into an unused display port while the HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini is sleeping. Solution is to cycle power on the new display after waking the EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. Cycling display power on the newly added display causes displays to be re-detected. (Solved. Problem resolves itself after a few boot cycles) After applying the Catalina 10.15.5.02 supplemental update, Catalina booted to a single display.  After a few boot cycles, multi-display operation was restored to normal. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Unable to upgrade from 10.15.4 to 10.15.5 when using IntelMausiEthernet.kext.  Solution is to switch to IntelMausi.kext (Rev 1.0.2 here). (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Some USB devices were not recognized. My SSDT-UIAC.aml was incomplete and did not specify all required USB port types (missing SSxx ports). The attached EliteDesk.zip archive includes this fix. (Reported this as a possible Clover issue - no solution yet) Clover boot loader may default to Recovery volume after a normal shutdown.  Work-around is to select your normal macOS volume.  This may only happen when Clover is configured to boot LastBootedVolume and may be "fixable" by explicitly setting a boot volume (haven't tested this). (No longer observed) At least one display blanks (sleeps) when plugging / unplugging USB device (observed in front USB 3.1 ports).  Display wakes immediately on keyboard and mouse activity, so this is a minor issue but may be indicative of another issue. (Solved - this is a BIOS setting and requires no macOS changes) Safari has problems loading insanelymac web pages after sleep / wake.  I suspect that the problem is with the embedded video on the pages.  Also observed video problem in AppStore after sleep/wake.  Console: VideoDecodersUnavailable.  Solution is to enable Intel ME in BIOS. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Display does not fully wake after resuming from sleep (needs an extra mouse or keyboard stimulus to fully wake).  Solution is to change boot arg darkwake=0 to darkwake=2.  Other values of darkwake may work as well, but this is the first I tried and it worked. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) -disablegfxfirmware boot arg is not required with WEG.  I inadvertently left this boot arg after I encountered an endless gfx firmware update boot loop while working on my FB patching.  This boot arg is no longer necessary after completing FB patching with WEG. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive): Sometimes, CMOS time is lost on shutdown or restart.  Solution is to enable Clover's Apple RTC fix in config.plist. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) headphone jack doesn't work.  Solution is to change HDEF layout-id to 28. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) System freezes on wake from sleep because of a kernel panic related to hda-gfx (my system does not have HDMI and my DP->DVI adapters do not drive monitor speakers).  Solution is to add No-hda-gfx property to HDEF as described here.  This property is recognized as a Lilu flag and prevents loading hda-gfx. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Device (PMCR) is not defined.  Solution is a SSDT that "injects" the missing device. (Solved and included in the attached archive) eficheck is loaded (not sure why this is bad, but may be a privacy issue - see here). Solution is to add updated EFICheckDisabler kext that include Q370 chipset.  See here.

      Hi,
       
      I followed the OC guide, and installed Catalina 10.15.5 on my PC.
      The installation went very well. Most parts also work well after I login to the desktop except the following
      issue:
      Each time I tried to log back into the desktop from sleep, I would get a black screen very shortly after I entered the desktop.
      And black screen will last from a few seconds to a few minutes, no exact lasting time.
      Keyboards and mouse are still working during black screen, I can see the operations after the monitor works again.
       
      It connects LG monitor via DP port and I tried to modified the dp version between 1.2 and 1.4, got the same issue.
       
      Attached my entire OC folder, I'm so appreciated if someone could help me check it out, or tell me which part I should focus on.
       
      Thanks in advance!
