Hey guys, first of all, i hope all of you and your families are doing well.

Received a Transcend M2 2242 256GB SSD which fits into the WWAN port.

Now i have dual boot on my T440S and will be able to keep my projects fresh and up to date more often hopefully.

Yesterday i installed 11.2.1 with latest OpenCore version and kexts.

The great news is that now the Card Reader works perfectly fine even after wake from sleep with latest version.

Latest version of VoodooRMI is not satisfying on the Upgraded Touchpad, it was perfect but now is kind of annoying whereas the standard one, people are saying that it improved decently.
I barely managed to install yesterday as it was late, and as soon as it finished, i tested card reader and went to sleep.
Tonight i will do some more testing and cleanup and update the guides during weekend-next weekend depending on my schedule, i want to include additional improvements and not only update the EFI with latest OC and kexts.

As for iMessage, it’s no use on trying, it is not blocking your machine but in never Apple ID’s it is impossible even if you correctly generate matching values.

Only way is to dump a ROM and MLB value from a genuine Mac that is not in use anymore and use these and generate your own Serial and UUID and that way it will work.
Thanks for the update! While I'm still running Mojave/Clover, I still follow this thread pretty closely. Glad to hear some updates were added to the card reader kext - I'll be giving that a shot later today.

I always thought about snagging one of the m.2 cards and putting it in that slot. Glad to hear it works fine - maybe I'll snag one and throw Big Sur on it, so I can keep Mojave on the main SSD for my legacy needs.

Yes, Card Reader works perfect now.

About the M.2 SSD the one i got is the:
Transcend MTS430S 256GB, it is the M2 - 2242 form factor that fits well.

I will grab another one for my X240 as well.

It would be easier for you to try OpenCore on the new M.2 and have Big Sur.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I can have the best of both worlds.

I will let you know if I pick one up.

EDIT: Also, the latest card reader kext with the appropriate boot parameter seems to be working great on my legacy Clover + Mojave install. I didn't actually test sleep/wake yet, but I can do that later this week just to confirm it's working.
