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


  • It seems that the full gesture will be enabled, I haven't tested it yet. If anyone has interest in it, try the kext, patches and instructions mentioned in the following link, ELANSMBus

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
