At first , SO Many thanks for the hard work of the PIE- this tool help me Install a perfect Hachintosh on my new EliteBook 820 G1 -- with i54200U- 8GB rom- .

Because I ever installed Mac OS X 10.10.2 on my working laptop - Thinkpad X230, the installation of G820 is so Easy -- I only used about 35 minutes - and got everything work fine: the HD4400\the battery\the Volume Fn Key\ the brightness Fn Key\the bluetooth and hibernate. with PIE and the installation guide - the installation almost like an OpenBox process - So easy ! BTW - I have buy a BCM94224 wifi card - It's on the way. And I use AR9285 now.

BUT-- a little defect: the trackpad works excellent, I can use it with two and three fingers, but the trackpoint can not working. I found VoodooPS2Controller.kext in the CLOVER kext directory , but I don't know how to enable the trackpoint -- is there anyone can help me ?

So many thanks again

The trackpoint is not supported.

If you have C++ skills, you can modify VoodooPS2Controller.kext to add support for it.

WOW! I meet the author !
Thank you for your kind replay , My program skill is JAVA -- about the knowlegde of C++:crazy:, Very poor.

So maybe I have a big challenge in modify the voodooPS2conller.kext, do you have a plan to add the trackpoint support in next version ?

On the other hand, if there are some guide of modify the kext , maybe I will try it -- but now , I can not find any document .

The code for the trackpad is in VoodooPS2SynapticsTouchPad.cpp.
