Hey, Max.

 

I Found a good solution to fix the slash/? key on pt_bt layouts of lenovo thinkpad.
Background information:
Followin the apple tn2450 table i found the key code 0x87
https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/technotes/tn2450/_index.html
Now, i follow the apple usb 2 adb table and fount 5e correspondent adb code to 0x87 from hid_adb_2_usb_keymap
https://opensource.apple.com/source/IOHIDFamily/IOHIDFamily-606.1.7/IOHIDFamily/Cosmo_USB2ADB.c

to check keyboard events, use ioio -s ApplePS2Keyboard LogScanCodes 1

it to trigger the logging of the adb codes and look at console filtering by "ApplePS2Keyboard"

 

Finally, the simplified solution:

 

Add a custom map in VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist

 

The remap: e01d=5e

 

Using PlistBuddy (i have a automated script to build my efi folder)

 

plist=VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist
node=':IOKitPersonalities:ApplePS2Keyboard:Platform\ Profile:Default:Custom\ ADB\ Map'

/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Add ${node}:1 string 'e01d=5e'" $plist

 

manually:

open VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist

find IOKitPersonalities -> ApplePS2Keyboard -> Platform Profile -> Default -> Custom ADB Map

and add a line <string>e01d=5e</string>

 

results like:

                <key>Default</key>
                <dict>
                    <key>Breakless PS2</key>
                    <array>
                        <string>;Items must be strings in the form of breaklessscan (in hex)</string>
                    </array>
                    <key>Custom ADB Map</key>
                    <array>
                        <string>;Items must be strings in the form of scanfrom=adbto (in hex)</string>
                        <string>e01d=5e</string>
                    </array>
                    <key>Custom PS2 Map</key>
                    <array>

Hey, @Max.1974

I'm happy to be able to help, keeping in mind that your post is very old, I even thought it had already been solved.

At that moment, I got an even better solution, keeping the kext untouched and applying the patch via SSDT according to this code:
