T60p wide (15.4)" Palmrest Dilemma

Hi everybody, the palmrest of my faithful T60p widescreen didn't survive the last "accident" (a hard impact on the ground) so it's time to replace it. (the thinkpad continued to work without a glitch 8) ). According to the manual, the FRU is 42W2211 (or 42W2209 w/o fingerprint reader) Seems hard to ...

Re: 10.8.4 successfully installed on T60P

Stumbled upon this very interesting thread, Great Work! hopefully I can be as successfull as you installing 10.8. , on my T60P. I'm successfully running 10.6.8 but now some apps are any more supported, and I was trying to get further. As the poster before me I was unable to solve the V5250. It's a d...

Re: T60p 10.6.8 ATI v5250 on battery: screen turns blue

Yes, noticed the same behaviour. What are you using: stock 10.6.8 ati drivers with atinject (with EDID or without?) or patched 10.5 atindrv? Are you using a external monitor on VGA? I noticed that just the internal LVDS turns blue not the external. It can come from an incorrect setting in the frameb...

Re: 10.6.3 on a T60p 8741-CU1, thanks to Silencer! Some issues..

Hi, having a very similar system, and all I can say that the "prepackaged setup" is almost impossible for this system. But if you have specific Q, feel free to ask. BTW v5250 is a big PITA. It's very similar to the x1700 mobility card but works AFAIK only with the ATINDRV from 10.5. 10.6.7 changed t...

Re: DSDT Patching for Dummies - SnowLeo with 100% vanilla /S/L/E

Hi all, great guide! Step by step I'm getting a working 10.6.4 system. Slightly different setup (v5250 @ 1680x1050) is a huge PITA: the only way i'm getting the video to work is through RadeonHD in S/L/E w/ patched ATIRadeonX1000.kext (w devid. 0x71D41002) All other methods failed on my system (EFI ...
