Hi!

I've been working for a while on this project but I am stuck. I am using a Lenovo x240 laptop as a Hackintosh running the latest El Capitan release. It is stable, fast and usable, but I am missing two key features to complete this project. The first one is Audio, the second is sleep/wake.

I use the latest Clover with custom DSDT to make it functional. I attached my EFI/CLOVER folder if someone is interested in making the X240 OS X compatible.

Sound works with VoodooHDA obviously, but I would like to have a patched AppleHDA and get rid of the VoodooHDA. I've seen some people were able to do it with the Realtek ALC292, but I couldn't crack it yet.

Sleep wake is also not functioning properly. The laptop goes to sleep is I close the lid or press sleep from the menu and that's it. I am not able to wake it no matter what I try. Power button, lid, keyboard, mouse it doesn't matter ignores all these attempts to wake it. Before I applied the custom DSDT it was not able to sleep only the display turned off. I've seen some people with the Lenovo T440, which is quite similar to the X240, were able to do it with out problems. I must miss something easy, but I am stuck for now.

For Bluetooth and Wifi I use USB adapters and they are working well.

Any ideas?
Can someone with more experience check my configs what am I missing?

Thanks!

USB WiFi is known to cause instability, especially with sleep. Always test sleep without external devices plugged in.

For testing sleep/wake functionality I disconnected all external devices (USB BT, Wifi). First I would like to make this work without anything connected, then I can proceed. Can you give me some advice?

ACPI patching and power management is covered in the FAQ.

This is where I figured out all the other stuff like, battery status, backlight control, SSDT script. I just couldn't proceed anymore.

I will read the FAQ all over again I must have missed something, but in the meantime any help is much appreciated :)

You can fix the headphones and AppleHDA with my build of CodecCommander.kext.

Hi;

I'm new to Hackintosh and I managed to install El Capitan on a lenovo X240. Unfortunately audio, trackpad, keyboard, wifi and bluetooth were not working, together with the sleep function.

I have downloaded your clover folder and installed your .kext files with kext wizard and now keyboard and mouse worked. Battery management shows a low value without indicating how much.
Audio is not working, could you please send me drivers or indicate how to proceed?

Thank you all for the contribution.

Bye

Hi

I have tried to follow the guide on the link but I can't manage to proceed. Many functionalities are not working, but I'm worried about the most useful things such Audio, Video, sleep and battery. Trackpad, ethernet and keyboard are working fine, wifi is external. Attached is the ioreg. I could do some kext installation using a software that just drag and drop kext files.

Could you please help?

Thank you
