e7470 Issues - Catalina


Recommended Posts


I have successfully installed macOS 10.15.3 Catalina on my Dell Latitude e7470.

It is generally working fine, but there are a few issues that I have not been able to solve:


1. Caps Lock key - Regardless of whether I have Karabiner-Elements installed, in order to toggle Caps Lock, I have to press the key twice. Really frustrating.


2. Brightness - When dimming the screen, it flickers and doesn't stop flickering until readjusted to max brightness. Strangely, this problem goes away if I put the laptop in sleep, then wake from sleep.

Already tried EmuVariableUefi and AppleBacklightFixup.kext. Neither of those solved the issue.


3. Battery Consumption - Compared to Windows, the battery drains quickly on macOS. By quickly, I mean 1 percent per minute. Spotlight is out of the question. Battery health is very excellent. Again, I don't have this issue in Windows.


4. Bluetooth is not working - Although it is detected.


I have attached my Clover folder and /L/E/ folder.
