Mine gets a longer battery than 2 hours. Did you create a DSDT, or are you using my old one that I had removed?
:eek: Now that you mentioned it...
I tried creating my own DSDt, but MaciASL reported problems compiling.
So I left the patched folder empty.
Now that I copied your DSDT over it seems to give a slightly better battery life.
Gonna do more testing and try compiling again.

I saw your config.plist but you set ig platform id 591b0000, is it not ig platform id 59160000 for graphic hd 620?

Ok so I am getting closer to being done. I have done everything but patching the DSDT files. I dont understand how to patch them. I follow everything to the t until I'm supposed to patch them in MaciASL. so i am supposed to open each of my extracted .dsl files and do what exactly? click the purple patch folder and paste what in? can you help a noob out? thanks

Using patched ACPI files from another computer is a bad idea.

Always patch your own.

I'm trying to, keep getting syntax errors during compile.
That happens even when I tried compiling the unedited DSDT.dsl

disassembled the files using : iasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt DSDT.aml SSDT*.aml
Done this refs.txt with and without the "External(MDBG, methodObj" line
still getting reports of unresolved external control methods

not sure where the error is from

No, just run iasl and edit the DSDT. You don't need to do anything else with the origin files. I would suggest reading RehabMan's Laptop Patching Guide.

No files attached, therefore no idea.

Yes ! Finally succeeded ! Used the instructions on the page and manually fixed the DSDT.dsl file
Thank you @krosseyed @RehabMan for the original instructions there

Played a 1 hr mp4 clip - estimated the battery life to be approx 5+ hours from that :)
Its a massive change

Haven't figured out how to apply the BRT6 fix, but am using karabiner-elements to get around that
so no problems.
