macOS on Lenovo ThinkPad T480s

This repository contains a sample configuration to run macOS (Currently Mojave 10.14) on a Lenovo ThinkPad T480s

Used Hardware Configuration

  • Lenovo ThinkPad T480s
    • Intel i5-8250U
    • 8GB RAM onboard + Crucial DDR4 2400-SODIMM
    • Samsung 970 evo NVMe SSD
    • Dell DW1560 Wireless (original Intel AC8265 not working)
      • Wi-Fi device ID [14e4:43b1], shows as Apple Airport Extreme due to AirportBrcmFixup.kext
      • Bluetooth device ID [0a5c:216f], chipset 20702A3 with firmware v14 c5882 using BrcmPatchRAM2.kext
    • Realtek ALC257 by AppleALC.kext with layout-id 11 (requies a patch, already patched in this repo)
    • Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Nvidia MX150 disabled, Optimus not supported by macOS)
    • Power management and battery status by ACPI hotpatching
    • Integrated camera (works out of the box)
    • Keyboard/Elan Touchpad (PS/2) using ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext v4.7b5 by EMlyDinEsH
      • Support multi-touch gestures
      • Need to disable Trackpoint in BIOS (otherwise touchpad would be disconnected)
      • Requires to patch the binary ApplePS2SmartTouchPad, already patched in this repo (otherwise the driver reports unsupported model):
        Offset    Original  Patched
        0000ABF5  72        EB
        0000AC2D  01        04
  • Disabled devices
    • WWAN (no module)
    • Trackpoint (can be enabled when using VoodooPS2Controller.kext)
  • Untested devices
    • SD card reader
    • Fingerprint scanner
    • Thunderbolt 3 (USB type-c works)
  • Firmware Revisions
    • BIOS version 1.26


  • (Important) You need to generate a proper config.plist with unique serial numbers:
    • Run ./tools/ (macOS) or tools\gen.bat (Windows) to generate config.plist.
    • Add -f or --force flag to forcibly regenerate config.plist with new serial numbers.
  • All SSDT hotpatches are located at EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/dsl. You can update the compiled .aml binaries by running (macOS) or update.bat (Windows).
  • The SSDT-KBD.aml is tuned for ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext. If you want to switch to VoodooPS2Controller.kext, use SSDT-KBD.aml in backup folder instead.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
