What kext are you guys using with Mojave, ALC3232 or AppleALC? Especially with regards to Mini DP audio.

Hello everyone, I have some questions before I will order a wireless card and move from Arch Linux to Mac OS Mojave.

First off; which wireless card is recommended for the T440p with whitelist removed? I would like to get the DW1830 for the 3-antenna capabilities and BT 4.1. I do not use a WWAN card so I have two antennas to spare. I might also go with the DW1560 depending on the availability of the DW1830.

Cheers,
Emil
I can answer this question - go for DW1560. DW1830 do not fit entirely into the slot. Chassiss is designed for Intel cards which are shorter, cards are also screwed to it. In case you will use DW1830 you will not be able to screw it to the chassis, not mentioning that you need to make additional hole in the screw hole to fit it.

Cheers, I thought as much after having measured my card. I'll also keep an eye on the DW1820a thread.

I've got Mojave 10.14.3 up and running near perfectly using the following configuration: https://github.com/jloisel/t440p

However, the monitor output is behaving a bit oddly. VGA doesn't work at all (expected, as no MBP has VGA), and the mini displayport output doesn't work when using a miniDP->HDMI or miniDP->DVI adapter. It works perfectly with miniDP->VGA. I haven't yet tried with a displayport cable. Has anyone else had this issue, or have any idea as to where I can start fixing it?

Try these kext2patch:

name find replace
AppleIntelFramebufferAzul - 01050900 00040000 87000000 - 01051200 00080000 87000000
AppleIntelFramebufferAzul - 02040900 00040000 87000000 - 02041290 00008000 08700000


and disable DSDT patch:
Change BOD3 to HDAU.

Forgive me, I've not done this before. Is this all I need to do for KextToPatch?
As for DSDT, running MaciASL I cant find any BOD3 entries at all, but HDAU exists already.

Thanks

Regarding DSDT you can find it in the first tab in Clover Configurator under "ACPI" - scroll through the patches and see if you can find "Change BOD3 to HDAU" or else you can skip it.

Try it out and see if it works don't forget to reboot between changes in Clover.
I might have some other fixes for you if it doesn't work, I had the same issue and have tried to solve it for a few days and successfully managed to do so yesterday.
