Lenovo Thinkpad T470s: tweaking Mojave

Recommended Posts

Hi Jake,

 

Building from previous work with High Sierra, got little further progress on the t470s. Have attached debug files for review.

 

Mojave 10.14.2 however still issues on trackpad (jumpy and battery status shows 0%). Apart from that everything seems good.

 

Happy new year to you

 

Dan

Hi Jake,

 

Got quite bit further on the t470s - System is now fully functional, battery status, wifi, trackpad. System works solid.

 

Got some tips from the Max 1974 thread and a few other members of the community that you helped out - 

 

Only real issue I'm having would be battery life - battery drains really quickly from a full charge - approx 1 hour. Is there any tricks to get this better? I installed the intel power gadget and could not see any resources hog that would indicate as such. Hoping you could take a look at my debug files and offer any assistance (again) if you could.

 

Many thanks in advance

Dan

Hey max - yes mate thank you soo much. System is very nice and obviously very similar to yours.

 

the trackpad is still a little jumpy however can live with that, will carry out a few more tests to see if it can improve.

 

battery life is poor - hopefully @Jake Lo could shed some light.

 

thanks again man,

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T470S with an Intel Core I5 7th Gen 2.7MHz, Intel HD620 Graphics, and  16GB.  Here is my Clover folder that is in my EFI folder. It is based on the work of Max.1974 and Jake Lo's work at the above post. 

 

Everything works but the battery indicator and the screen dimming. Still working on that, but they are relatively minor things still to wrap up. This file should give folks a good jump start. I will post an update once I get the last two things running. 

 

Special thanks to Max.1974 for his thread on the E470 and how detailed he got, including Bios settings to use.

Herve, (and JoT470S)

See if this one is okay.

It is my full Clover folder from my EFI partition. 

 

I am now running Mojave 10.14.6. I did try to jump to Catalina and the install failed. Mojave does everything I want, so I returned to it. 

It seems to be running about 95% of the things correctly.  It seems that I hit an occasional bug here and there. I am sure open to any improvements.

I also installed HWMonitor and it seems to be working fine to monitor the CPU temps, frequency and battery percentage accurately.

 

Let me know what you think!

Again, thanks to Max1974 and @JakeLo for all the prep work they did before I started.

Here is the Lenovo card I swapped out to based on Max1974's work. It is about $40 on eBay. Note,  you need to take a dremmel tool and add the second notch. It only takes a moment to do.

Best to opt for a wireless card with Key A/E directly in order to fit straight into the Key A slot of the T470s. Eg: T77H649.00 (Lenovo FRU 00JT494), WCBN808B (Lenovo FRU 00JT493) or equivalent.
