Introduction (Welcome to QQ (tencent chatting program) group:97986046)

My purpose is to allow ThinkPad P52 to run mac OS mojave as natively as possible

Tips: If you want to use built-in network adapter, you'd better buy a new pcie card, and I suggest DW1560 or DW1830, considering baout the size and space. Also, P52 does not have whitelist upon WLAN hardware, you even do not need to modify your BIOS

What do you need

  • Lenovo ThinkPad P52 Series Notebook, It seems that P72 can also work with this clover, not tested
  • Mojave disk image is prepared, nomally .dmg file, 10.14 & 10.14.2 & 10 ver.14.3 version has been tested
  • USB storage (at least 8 Gigabyte)
  • Broadcom DW1560 or DW1830 WLAN PCIE card (DW1830 requires modified antenna)

BIOS Configration

  • Boot mode: UEFI
  • security boot should be disabled
  • Storage mode: AHCI

Full Compatibility

  • Boot clover with UEFI mode
  • Built-in keyboard (partial function key and Num keyboard works well)
  • native USB3 / USB2 ports (USB type-c can work, but two thunderbolts has not been tested)
  • AppleHDA native audio, Speakers + Internal Mic + Headphone
  • Built in Camera
  • Native power management
  • Battery Status (Percentage can be displayed)
  • Brightness control
  • Backlit keyboard (Use Fn + space)
  • INTEL iGPU UHD 630 1536MB Vram (DGPU has been disabled by hotpatch)
  • Ethernet port
  • Mac App Store works normally
  • CPU SpeedStep
  • Sleep + Wake
  • Wireless LAN (Broadcom DW1560 or DW1830)
  • Bluetooth (Broadcom DW1560 or DW1830)
  • AirDrop, AirPlay and HandOff
  • Trackpoint
  • 4K display (Use 4K version config)

Partially working devices

  • Touchpad can work with one finger gesture by using VoodooPS2 kext
  • in the future touchpad can work with ApplePS2SmartTouchPad kext by patching hopefully

Disabled devices

  • HDMI, HDMI port is connected with disabled NVIDIA DGPU
