Hello I am new to this but I managed to install macOS Mojave on my Lenovo Thinkpad E570 (for iOS development). I have ironed out most the kinks but the main issue now is that my IntelHD 620 shows up with only 7mb of ram I also have no 3d acceleration (grapher doesn't show 3d graphs). I tried installing lilui and whatever green but that did nothing. I also have an Nvida Geforce gtx 950M but I want to figure out the intel graphics first.

Also another issue is that I don't have a battery indicator on my status bar. I was told Intel Wifi cards don't work so I will have to buy a USB Wifi dongle or something.

@benthewolf,

When using WhatEverGreen make sure you inject the correct PlatformID for your IGPU by setting the Device Property AAPL,ig-platform-id, see this guide for more info :-

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/an-idiots-guide-to-lilu-and-its-plug-ins.260063/

For battery indication you will need to patch your DSDT and install Rehabmans kexts, see guide :-

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-how-to-patch-dsdt-for-working-battery-status.116102/

For WiFi you should be able to swap out the Intel card for a Broadcom based one :-

Hello I solved the vram problem by using one of rehabman's intel gpu config.plist files, but I don't really understand the process of dsdt patching for the bar is there any chance you could walk me through it ?

@benthewolf,

Battery patching for laptops is pretty straight forwards these days thanks to @RehabMan ... he has written many great guides and has created a MaciASL Patch repo with all the patches your likely to need.

In summary you need to press F4 in Clover to save the ACPI tables from your BIOS ... these will be saved in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Origin. Copy the DSDT.aml file and any SSDTXXXX.aml files to a work folder. You will then need to decompile the .aml files using the method in this guide :-

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-patching-laptop-dsdt-ssdts.152573/

Once you have successfully decompiled the DSDT.aml file you will then need to fix any errors so that in can be re-compiled in MaciASL, this process is also covered in the above guide.

Finally once you have fixed the compile errors you can then use one of RehabMans MaciASL battery patches to automatically patch the battery code in your DSDT.

It sounds complicated if your new to it but if you read rehabmans guides and take things steady you'll soon learn the skills necessary. If you get stuck or need help with the process then it would be best to create a new dedicated thread in the Laptop Forum.

Thanks !, one of the dsdt patches in his gitbub repo supported my laptop and I installed it sucessfully. The last thing is mapping my brightness keys, I followed @RehabMan new tutorial and got the brightness slider in sys prefs but tried generating sys logs for key presses on both ps2 and acpi and none work but I think I will just make a new thread for that. Thanks again for everything

@benthewolf,

Well done patching your DSDT for Battery reporting .... Working with MaciASL and patching DSDT and SSDT is a key skill in creating a fully working hackingtosh.

The last thing is mapping my brightness keys, I followed @RehabMan new tutorial and got the brightness slider in sys prefs but tried generating sys logs for key presses on both ps2 and acpi and none work but I think I will just make a new thread for that.


I Just noticed that you don't have any details about your laptop's hardware in your profile, as per the site rules, please update your hardware profile so that others can help you easier, see the Profiles section of the rules for more information:-

https://www.tonymacx86.com/rules/

You can configure your side bar hardware profile in your account settings :-

https://www.tonymacx86.com/account/

You can add additional information about your hardware in your signature :-

https://www.tonymacx86.com/account/signature

See my side bar Profile and Signature for examples, the more info you can put, the better.

When you create your request for help make sure that you generate and attach Problem Reporting files, it will be the first thing Rehabman will ask for .. see this guide for more details :-

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/tool-generate-proper-problem-reporting-files.235953/

Thanks again for everything


Happy to help, glad your on the road to a fully functioning laptop hackingtosh.

Cheers
Jay
