Use this version of driver.
Because this is an old version, a few hours after installing it, Windows will automatically update to the newest one unless you didn't disable automatic driver update in the System policy. In that case, go to Device manage -> Ultranav device properties, tab Driver and click Roll Back Driver, it will keep this version forever.
I second this driver. This driver worked flawlessly for me on Windows 10.


BTW does the trackpad work for you guys? A week ago it stopped working for me. The 3 buttons and trackpoint work perfect, but the trackpad simply derped out, and I'm not sure why. The tracking does not work with one finger and instead I have to use two fingers at a time, and the gestures also don't work. I'm using latest versions of VoodooPS2Controller and VoodooInput

Sometimes randomly when I boot, the trackpad does not work. A reboot will fix it. Not sure why that happens. Yes, I have the latest versions of VoodooPS2 and VoodooInput drivers from Acidanthera.

@CoBrA2168 thanks.

Yes, after a clean install i went straight to download the TouchPad driver from T450S Lenovo Support - Drivers site which is:
(jbg218ww.exe) version: 19.3.4.224 release date: 03 Feb 2020
And installed it right away before Windows Update install the wrong version, rebooted and:
It is working correctly now as it was pulled from a real T450S and not bought on AliExpress or eBay.

@Fobos531
As for the n10gx25w it is the one for the chinese trackpads with different firmware versions.
Even for this there is a newer variant but what the main problem is, is the fact that even those models from china may work fine but they are just unspecified from/for what model they are/came from.
There are many variants. The best way would be for people to post their Hardware IDs on a specific forum for the entire **50 series so we know which models we got and go get that specific driver from that model that it was meant to.

It's a ALCPlugFix problem combined with AppleALC.
Im working to get all these problems resolved, we are close but need a bit more time to iron out 1 more remaining issue with static noise on cold boot and then Audio should work perfect only with AppleALC and without CodecCommander and without ALCPlugFix.
Thank you very much! I salute you for all that you are doing :)

@Sniki would you mind sharing your brcm (94352z) wifi drivers for windows 10? I'd really like to try them out as you said they work perfectly for you while I have the aforementioned issue where the wifi adapter is detected but it cannot actually find any networks.

I don't have the driver for the moment as im not using that card anymore.
I have original 2x Apple Bcm94360cs2 cards on my T440S and V330 and the DW1820A on the X240.
I remember that i had that issue once where wireless networks were not showing up but after another clean install and installation of drivets from Windows Update via Lan, drivers were installed correctly and i had wireless network connectivity.
You can try DriverEasy, it will download you the latest drivers or go to dell website and download the DW1560 drivers from there, they should work.

@Sniki any updates on progress on the updates needed for Catalina? I'm still very satisfied on Mojave. I might end up skipping Catalina all together :lol:

Have you installed Clover onto the hard drive? What exactly is the issue when booting from the hard drive? Please be more descriptive with your issue.
