@jake lo

Is anybody there who can guide a bit... I successfully installed Sierra on my L502x but can't get the clover installation to work as I was previously dual booting with Windows and Yosemite with chameleon bootloader with almost everything working... Now on Sierra I can't get to boot with clover because I am unable to understand how to install it successfully plus my battery status is also unable to show...I installed the previous kext installed on my yosemite version but it gives me a kernal panic regarding AppleACPIPlatform... Please guide me through some important kexts

@Jake LoThanks a ton for your reply...I needed a small help from you.. I installed Sierra Mac Os Successfully and I didn't install clover on it. just copied the boot1h file in my main drive and it worked great. Until I copied the dsdt patches you provided in this post.. The 2 things I can't get to work are

1: Graphics HD3000 (It works with brightness ) but fn keys don't work on this specific dsdt ... and the biggest issue is after installing Graphics Kexts my laptop hangs a lot.. works really slow.. don't know why..

2: Sleep doesn't works I installed the power management kext from here ( for 10.12.3. But it doesn't seems to work , only the screen goes blank . if I press a button it comes back.

 

Please help me resolve these two issues ... else than this everything is working like a charm. Wifi/Ethernet, Battery, trackpad/mouse/keyboard ...

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

No No, I am using clover. Cause I guess chameleon is not supported on Sierra . HD3000 is not natively supported I am attaching the kexts I used for graphics.. whereas the powermanagement kext I downloaded from here

version(10.12.3) as I am running the same .

 

 

One more thing sir. I have attached two DSDT files as well. One is from you as you posted in this post for L502x I copied that to my clover folder and I have this issue that my brightness function key doesn't works whereas it works on my second DSDT patch file.. but the graphics glitches remain the same on both plus does the sleep issue..

 

Thanks in advance

You should create a new thread for Sierra so it won't get out of hand

1) Since you're on Clover, you should restore the graphics kexts to vanilla, should work with the DSDT/Config file

2) I update my DSDT with patch from yours, see if it makes a difference

3) Post your Clover folder for review for further assistance in the new thread.
