macOS(10.14.x support) on Lenovo ThinkPad X230.

This is a backup for f23258’s article, check it to know how to install macOS on X230. Big thanks to him.

Also you can visit here to know how to buy a X230 and made it happen.

Some issues you should know:

  • WiFi network not work!
    • Change BCM94325HMB as your wireless card and programming that.
    • Set AirPortAtheros40.kext into System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Plugins then rebuild cache is not work for me.
    • I solved this issue through by a EDUP USB Wireless driver which named EP-N8508GS.
  • Audio sometimes not work well.
    • Commonly I made X230 go to sleep then wake it up, the audio work well.
    • Now, you can only set audio pannel in preferences the audio work well.
    • Actually I need some time to fix this issue, maybe later.
  • Touchpad just have basic function like move, multi finger gestures are all not work, I dont know why yet, fix later.
  • No other problems or you tell me.

Note: I use EFI file directly, it’s work on macOS 10.14/10.14.5 which I test it by myself.
