Hi Thanks a ton for this. I have the exact same configuration. except the CPU is the 10th Gen I5-1035G1. Can I use the given files for my laptop too? Or, do I need to tweak some things?

Hello @MaLd0n thanks for posting your Hack, please have there been any new changes with 10.15.4? Or a new BIOS?

I am looking around to get one but in QWERTY that is hard here, so wanted to make sure that the Hack is still good to go!

A lot of people complained that it's slow (on eBay or Amazon, not sure) so not sure if they refer to Ryzen or Core i3 version...

 

(I guess I will see you over at olarila.com when time comes and I get it, as attachment files belong there)

Hi @MaLd0n unfortunately I missed the chance to buy the model you posted here, the only model I can find with Core i5-8265U is the Lenovo S145-15IWL

The only difference I can spot is the 15-inch screen that supports 1920x1080 compared to the 14-inch screen, if I am not mistaken.

So the video will still work as expected yes? (via WhateverGreen of course) as it the same has Intel UHD 620 graphics inside...

Does it make sense to get the i7-8565U variant you think? In CPU benchmarks, performance is approx 10-12% more, I am surprised...

 

P.S. Some images in your original post cannot be displayed anymore... Thanks

P.S. I see that the IdeaPad S145 got upgraded to i5-1035G4 so is it safe to assume that due to next CPU generation, your patches will not work? The model is S145-15IIL

Hi @MaLd0n I finally managed to order the Ideapad S145-14IWL but with wrong keyboard locale, unfortunately I had no choice...

Do you know perhaps a good article/method/video to swap keyboard keys and make AZERTY to QWERTY?

More importantly can you provide more info on the Dell DW1560 you purchased? What chipset is inside, manufacturer ID etc.? (dare I ask for shop like eBay or Ali?)

Is it easy to install at the bottom of laptop, I assume? Please PM me if you prefer. Obrigada

@MaLd0n sry for asking noob questions, but I want to be sure before I buy this laptop. Can you please confirm if this model is compatible with your folder and DSDT? Thanks a lot in advance. If it is, I will buy right away.

EDIT: Also, if possible, can you tell me how is battery life on macOS? I will use for travelling, so need decent battery. Thanks again, and sry for disturbing with noob questions.

Hi @MaLd0n I received just before the weekend the S145-14iWL model and I must admin I am not happy, because each time I go into the BIOS to change so I can boot from USB stick (with your EFI package, thanks!) the computer just restarts after few seconds. I can assume this is a bug in the BIOS as I have ASCN33WW and not sure if you ever had this problem... the moment I enter BIOS even doing nothing, it restarts. But during the (default) Windows use (on SSD) it's normal and stable.

 

According to https://support.lenovo.com/fr/en/downloads/ds506465 the BIOS today is ASCN44WW. I will try updating this tonight before returning the laptop...

 

Please, two questions a) your EFI and OC packages, are they based on the latest DSDT extracted from latest BIOS?

b) What are the absolutely necessary BIOS settings to disable except "Secure Boot"?

 

Thank you, obrigado

@MaLd0n I found a 15-IWL model but it has a 1080p display instead of your 768p. Can all these fixes still work on that model? Thanks in advance.

yes ;)

Hi @MaLd0n I hope you are well and safe, thanks for the update of the original URL in the first post, I will try downloading it and test it.

I eventually got the S145-14iWL but when I had tried your (previous) Clover folder, it kept crashing for some reason and I could never make it work. I updated to latest BIOS ASCN44WW.

 

As a first step, I managed to boot the Catalina installer with some Clover-config tweaks and started the normal Catalina boot after some more tweaks and main DSDT edits, i.e. EC0->EC, SBUS+BLC0, AWAK fixes for now.

 

I am waiting for the BCM94350ZAE WLAN card and I must remove the Intel P660 NVMe that came installed (with Windows) as it is reported to not work with macOS in a stable way... Now I boot from external SSD in USB 3.0 box (works just fine for getting the system stable!)

 

But I have an issue with trackpad, I cannot make get it work. I used the kexts you have in your Clover.zip folder, I think it's ELAN and not Synaptics. Can you please help? Do you want me to send you the original DSDT extracted in Clover (F4 button) ? What would possibly help you? Do we need DSDT fixes for trackpad?

 

Many thanks, obrigado!!!

Hi @MaLd0n thank you for posting the Clover folder, I managed to boot eventually, as the boot process was freezing all the time... I tried many options in Clover screen, and it seems that on my Lenovo S145-14iWL with firmware 44WW there is a need to activate the DellSMBIOSPatch for a reason I cannot understand. Also, HaltEnabler is not needed it seems, as well as KernelLAPIC option not needed (I managed to boot without them and a couple more).

 

My worry is that this need for whatever DellSMBIOSPatch does is not available in OpenCore... I will need to test maybe but it's more difficult as OpenCore doesn't have live-options-to-choose in boot like Clover (for now).


A question please: All the kexts you have in the Clover kext folder in your latest ZIP, are they all available for later updates from Git (acidanthera, VoodooI2C, NoTouchID etc.) or are you building them via Xcode for specific use for Lenovo here? Maybe with code changes? (whatever Hackintool reports)

 

Thanks!

 

P.S. I see now that the Display allows for brightness control (great) with the PNLF device but there's a tick under it for Ambient Light Sensor... as the S145-14iWL doesn't have such a light sensor that I know of, is it not a risk (for crashes etc.) to have this declared in your patched DSDT you think?

Good evening @MaLd0n I hope you are well and safe.

While waiting for decent NVMe offer from shops, and for the Broadcom WLAN/BTLE card (in the post, still) I have been booting from USB3 external SSD and checking all features (10.15.5) and I would like to ask you a few things for my S145-14iWL, I hope you will have time to reply!

  • The Brightness Up/Down keys on your laptop use F13/F14 as you have the 15" large keyboard, but on the 14" we have F11/F12 and the DSDT injection in _Q11 and _Q12 of EC0 device, the Notify (PS2K, 0x0406) and Notify (PS2K, 0x0405) values but they don't work :(  Any idea what we need to use for F11/F12 for us 14" users?
  • The 14" laptop I have, came with 1xSODIMM of 8GB and no soldered on-board memory. However, despite declaring it as MacBookPro15,2 in System Profiler I can see no memory at all displayed, no modules or RAM etc. at all. Do you get the memory on your S145 shown OK? Did you inject something special in the SMBIOS section of Clover?
  • Please note that the Clover config keys InjectHDMI and InjectLAN are apparently an error of CloverConfigurator and they are officially LANInjection and HDMIInjection.... just FYI... I read it on the Clover Wiki as I got puzzled by the settings :D
  • Since the laptop (well at least, mine) doesn't have any Light Sensor, do we need to include in DSDT the Device (ALS0) really? I see the check-mark under the screen's display brightness in System Preferences, but not sure if it's good to have as there's no hardware (for mine, at least).
  • I have been studying the different DSDT patches for Device (PNLF) and saw that despite others having _UID as 0x10 or even Zero, you include 0x13 instead. But most of the modern SSDT hacks (including OpenCore) tell that this value is found to be 0x14 for IvyBridge and then higher values for macOS above (see inside WhateverGreen.kext ZIP the file SSDT-PNLF.dsl for example). Are you basing this value on something specific from WhateverGreen? There's nothing in its Info.plist to be honest :(
  • Does your trackpad work without hiccups? Sometimes I feel mine is a little jumpy... I read over in Olarila.com the discussion about the polling (and the code needed) but don't know your experience with trackpad? Mine has _HID as "ELAN0629"
  • Finally, would it make sense to provide some feedback to VoodooPS2Controller by acidanthera and provide Lenovo values for the Info.plist of the plugin VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext maybe? They have Dell, HP and Intel codes... I have no way of contacting acidanthera...

Thank you very much again for your time! Obrigado

      Hi all,
       
      I have been trying to install Big sur on Opencore and i believe i'm almost there but i get stuck on a grey screen with my mouse pointer just before i can see the installer screen.
      I have applied the various SSDT patches for X99. I thought that was linked to VirtualSMC which I replaced by FakeSMC but same issue. I also declared my graphic card in config.plist as i thought it could come from there but that's not the issue (Radeon RX 570).
      I have been scratching my head for some time now. Any idea from anyone please.
       
      I have attached my EFI folder and my ioreg extract. Let me know if you need anything else.
       
      Thanks a million.

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the tedious steps or problems of other simlar apps.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install your bootloader of choiche on the usb (or just leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac).
       
      Features:
      - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process.
      - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers).
      - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly).
      - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too.
      - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal.
      - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code.
      - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk.
      - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you.
      - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool.
      - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update.
      - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer.

      Requirements:
      - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer).
      - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer.
      - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).
