Does everything work?

Core functions work flawlessly. Notable non-functional features include the fingerprint reader, WWAN, and USB 3.1 Gen2 hotplug.

Is this project maintained?

Yes, until eventually my x1c6 dies or macOS phases out update (even then, it'll likely last a few more years).

Can this brick my laptop?

Not very likely, expect drive wipes and lost time, however.

Can you port this for X machine?


How do I keep my Hackintosh setup updated?

Currently, there is no automatic solution available. For now, I recommend you create a GitHub watch alert and update the EFI as it comes along.

Basic References


Please read, or at the least, browse through these great resources to get an idea of what's going on before proceeding. This is especially important if this is your first time (OpenCore) Hackintosh-ing.


If I missed something here, refer to the official OpenCore docs first, then Dortania's docs. Only then, if you still haven't found what you're looking for, seek Google or forum help.

  • Additionally, references specific to the x1c6 are located in docs/references/

Function Summary


Feature Status Dependency Remarks
Apple Music Lossless (DRM) iGPU is incompatible with Apple's Lossless DRM. Try using an external DAC.
Fingerprint Reader DISABLED in BIOS to save power if not used in other OSes. Linux support was only recently added
Wireless WAN DISABLED in BIOS to save power if not used in other OSes. Unable to investigate as I have no need and my model did not come with WWAN.
Load Apple's Graphics Micro Code (GuC) See Issue #103. Will never work AFAIK due to inherent incompatibility.
