I was able to create a new USB Kext that enables all the USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports on the laptop, integrated camera, bluetooth, and all the USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports on the ultra dock. I've been using it for a few weeks and have had zero issues. I am on Mojave... not Catalina. I attach the kext i made to this post.
Will test!

No benchmarks yet but I'm happy to drain the battery and charge it up with the computer on to see how long it takes. I never really timed how long it took with my 90W charger. The apple charger is 87W so I assume the charge rate and time would be the same.

Good work! Fixed my camera issue.

@Sniki I would like to know what configuration you used for your X240 with the original x40 series trackpad (aka. clunkpad). I'm currently struggling with some glitches on this trackpad that I use with the t440p such as, buggy 2 finger click/tap for menu, buggy gestures and very weird palm protection behavior. I've tried using multiple kexts but it seems that for every thinkpad it either defaults to t420 trackpad or t460 clickpad. I don't care for trackpoint usage since it's really useless with the clunkpad. Any ideas?

When I upgraded the stock i5 to the i7 4910MQ, the laptop would reboot black screen and warn AC is not sufficient. It needed a 135w charger instead of 65w to run.

Things you could try:

- Booting in safe mode from Clover and see if the reboots still occur.
- A different lenovo charger that matches the power requirements of your CPU.
- Check your BIOS settings to see the behaviour of your laptop is correctly specified under AC power.
- Update your drivers and BIOS with Lenovo Vantage.

I would expect the issue is with your charger if your laptop is stable with battery.
Hi,

I am facing the same situation here but with a i7-4810. Did you manage to fix this?

Put the stock CPU back in to debug.

If the laptop now boots, the issue will likely be that your charger does now have enough power for the 4810.

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply! I put the old one back on and it boots fine. I have a 90W charger so that should not be the problem right?
Is this how you fixed yours?

The 4810 is a 47W CPU, 4300/4600 is 37W.

You'll need a 135W charger, as your CPU consumes more power.

Does the 4810 boot on battery?

The laptop does not boot at all, Battery or not. I have the integrated graphics T440p. In the manual it specifies that the AC for quad-core CPUs (the 4810mq is one of them) with integrated graphics is the 90W one. I am very confused. I just want to be as sure as possible that the CPU is faulty... Thanks for your help!

Attached are screenshots of the T440p specs.

Do you have a message on boot that says there is not enough AC power or just black screen?

Can you access BIOS with the 4810?
