I tried to patch the DSDT (battery) for my thinkpad L380, but to no avail. Could anyone help me on this?


Here are my hardware and software:

Bootloader: opencore 0.5.9 (DSDT and EFI in the attached file, SMBIOS removed)
Hardware:thinkpad L380 (detail info: https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_L380/ThinkPad_L380_Spec.PDF)
CPU: I5-8250U
GPU: UHD 620
SSD: 970 Evo plus
Wifi card: native broadcom card (wifi worked without kext, bluetooth doesn't work due to not properly patch USB)
OS: MacOS Catalina 10.15.7


Thank you and good day.

Thank you, I added DSDT.aml at the first column but forget to put on the SMCBatteryManager.kext. It's working now. 


One more thing I want to ask, my WIFI card is natively supported by macOS, but the broadcom bluetooth doesn't work. AFAIK, the bluetooth uses USB connection, so if I want it works to use airdrop, wireless sidecar and handoff, I only have to map the USB correctly? Or do I have to do something else for broadcom bluethooth to work?


Thank you again. Good day.
