When macOS Catalina comes out, Catalina guide will be up, it's too early to know what changes might happen.Once again thank you for your efforts on keeping this guide updated for Mojave, I'll make sure to go through it this week. @Sniki If I'm right, you will release a new guide once Catalina is out, or will Catalina require only config.plist and SSDT changes with the rest of Mojave guide applicable?
I usually publish new guide, no matter how minimal the changes are.
This is the full guide, temporary post was just a quick guide for people who couldn't wait.
Everything that i added on the guide i did make sure that is needed / necessary.
AirportBrcmFixup Documentation on their site:
From there i have choosed the best working option that can be the all in one solution no matter which card variant IDs that you pick / purchase.Installation types
- Clover Airport Fix + AirportBrcmFixup
- Clover Airport Fix + AddProperties(fake device-id) + AirportBrcmFixup (preferable)
- Clover Airport Fix + AirportBrcmFixup + FakePCIID + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext
- AirportBrcmFixup + FakePCIID + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext
If you browse other forums you can clearly see that for many people the only working solution from all of these installation types is FakePCIID.kext & FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, especially on Catalina
Some non US countries use one of the bands that are not available on US, therefore people end up with no connectivity.
- Regarding country codes for WiFi, usually there's no need for customization of country codes, right? I also don't recall doing any modifications to that in the "temporary" Mojave guide and everything working just fine so I guess it should work fine if I don't touch it. (even if I'm in Europe).
I posted that for people who need it, if you are fine with US it's all ok, mine works with us as well.
2.36 is the way to go for beginners and people who don't want to disassemble their laptop.For others here that are running macOS: which BIOS version do you use? Personally I've always used 2.36 since it's pretty much hassle-free. Even though Sniki recommends the latest BIOS version, I couldn't use it as I have some issues with the test clip/USB programmer. I can't even get the computer to recognize/read from the BIOS chip, maybe it's a faulty clip, but I'd rather not mess with it if it works. Besides, personally I've found 2.36 BIOS to work just fine with the computer.
I had latest bios version of T440s patched and all the process worked on first try. YMMV.
Your test clip was most probably damaged as they are very fragile.
2.36 works all fine but personally if i have the skills i would always go for latest version patched.
The biggest concern is security, there are so many security holes that need to be addressed/patched on Bios level.
The other things like additional bug fixes, stability improvements and enhancements are also welcome.
It all depends on personal choice.
Luckily we have two working options that can fit everyones need.
