Yoga 520 Hackintosh

Lenovo Yoga 520-14IKB Hackintosh EFI partition and installation notes for macOS Mojave 10.14.5

This build is a Work In Progress


What Works

  • Keyboard
  • USB 3.0
  • Full TrackPad support
  • Touchscreen and active stylus (tested with Wacom Bamboo Ink)
  • Graphics acceleration
  • Speakers and 3,5mm jack
  • Microphone
  • Built-in card reader
  • Sleep and hibernation (with delay)
  • Bluetooth
  • Webcam
  • Hotkeys (Audio controls, TrackPad On/Off)
  • Battery indicator


  • HDMI output
  • USB C port

What DOESNT Work

  • Internal WiFi (unsupported card Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377, can be replaced with one of the supported Broadcom cards)
  • TouchID (probably never will)
  • Hotkeys (Refresh, Airplane mode, Lock, Brightness controlls, Webcam On/Off, Mic On/Off
  • Messages and FaceTime (Probably a consequence of incompatible network card)

Installation notes

  1. Installation was done using a Unibeast USB (RehabMan's Clover build would not boot) with RehabMan's HD 620 config.plist on a secondary machine. This can be avoided by using the EFI partition posted here for booting the installer.
  2. At this point booting worked only in safe mode (ig-platform-id: 0x12345678 caused kernel panic), BT and USB 3.0 worked out of the box
  3. After installation Hackintool 2.6.9 was used for framebuffer patching using Kaby Lake Platform ID 0x591B0000
  4. Card reader support was enabled using Sinetek-rtsx.kext (Placed inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other)
  5. Audio was enabled with AppleALC.kext and layout ID 15
  6. TrackPad support was enabled with VoodooI2C.kext and VoodooI2CHID.kext and patching the DSDT with Windows 10 patch in MaciACL
  7. Hibernation was fixed by setting hibernationmode to 25 in Hackintool 2.6.9
  8. Battery and charging indication was enabled using RehabMan's ACPIBatteryManager.kext, which also seemed to enable full TrackPad support (before this right click and tap to click did not work)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
