macOS Mojave 10.14 on the ThinkPad X220

With the release of macOS Mojave 10.14, Apple is ending support for their own notebook models with specifications comparable to the ThinkPad X220.

Specifically, Apple’s transition to the Metal graphics framework involves¬†depreciating¬†OpenGL and OpenCL. The Intel HD Graphics 3000 found in the X220 as well as MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models produced before 2012 is not compatible with Metal.

While Mojave can run on the X220 by patching in graphics kexts from previous versions of macOS, we believe the lack of native graphic support in Mojave makes this an appropriate time for us to stop creating new guides for installing macOS on the X220.

We hope you understand this decision. All of our existing guides will remain where they are and we will continue to provide support for these versions of macOS on the X220 into the foreseeable future.
