Hello guys, the forum seems to have no updates now. I have tried few things for opencore with the official guide, that woouldnot boot properly so I fixed a lot of things by searching here and there but some problems still remain. Like the performance is not good and brightness keys do not work, while volume key if pressed for a second and released, it goes to max. Trackpad does not work but I think I can fix it. Has anyone done opencore perfectly? I'm on the latest version 0.6.2

I wonder if the the Lenovo V330-15IKB has gotten old, and everyone's moved on? But it's also unbecoming to have this thread in the Mojave section when we're really all using Catalina.

I'm not going back to Clover. I think OpenCore is mature enough that this is what you want to be using from now on. Actually, there is one thing about OpenCore—upgrading is completely manual, and you also have to tweak the config.plist file, so you can seriously make your system unbootable if you make a mistake there. Otherwise, I still prefer it to Clover.

The Lenovo laptop is just as slow in Linux or Windows, so I shrugged and thought it's what I paid for. Is there a configuration that's faster?

The F-keys could use some remapping for volume and brightness to work properly, but I haven't needed them so I haven't looked. I think I was using some kext fix for them with my previous HP laptop. That's probably where the solution is.

But as for the trackpad, I can get it working with VoodooI2C and VoodooRMI. There's a slight version conflict that makes the system unbootable that's not worth my time fixing, though. I've gotten too used to using a mouse and Bluetooth trackpad. They're both more ergonomic than the laptop trackpad, and my shoulder and back thank me for that. itlwm gets the WiFi going, and IntelBluetoothFirmware gets Bluetooth going.

I'm going to be upgrading my Lenovo to Big Sur and OpenCore 0.6.4 this weekend.

But VoodooI2C causes a kernel panic during boot in Big Sur, so I have to use a USB mouse or Bluetooth trackpad.

Let us know if you fix the problem with the VoodooI2C. Can I have a copy of your OpenCore folder please. Thank you

Did the Dec 10, 2020 BIOS update break things? I could only try if there's a way to revert.

There no way to go back. I checked. It did break the sound. But if you make a new DSDT you can get the sound working again. I am not sure what else what broken. Maybe the sleep. I havent got to work yet or fully test it.

I can't get the Lenovo to wake from sleep in Windows or Linux. I've never trusted a hackintosh to wake from sleep. Or was it hibernate that doesn't work?
