    Nice job @invait53! Mine is an AC with Bluetooth too. Haven't tested the speed yet bec my wifi router not an AC. My BT mouse (elecom) works on both my OSes. However, pairing my generic bt speaker with my hackintosh Sierra is unsuccessful. This escapes me. Why does my elecom bt mouse pair with my hack, but refuses to pair (continuous connect/disconnect) with a generic bt speaker? OffTopic: I love this laptop to bits now. Eversince the SSD upgrade, boot time has significantly improved. It uswd to take me 45 secs up to a minute to boot when I was still using HDD, now it takes me to win10 login in 8 secs, hackintosh sierra in under 10. Yay! Plus, I'm no longer scared of accidental bumps that may damage the hard drive, because hey, no moving parts any more!

    I'll stay with version 14xx. It's not broke so I ain't fixing it. I'm afraid we are the only ones left using this amazing piece of hardware from the dark ages. Methinks everbody has moved to thin and ultralight form-factor laptops already.

    Doesn't happen to me on Windows 10 (ver 16xx), nor on my main OS MacOS Sierra (hackintosh). It's most likely your Windows powersaving settings.

    @mikmaze @juandante May I ask what's the purpose of setting the multiplier by 38T? I have i7 3612QM. What multiplier should I set it to before starting TS Bench? Thank you.

    I went for the Broadcom BCM04352 Wireless-AC WiFi and Bluetooth combo. Works on my 2570p dual boot Windows 10 / Hackintosh MacOS Sierra. WiFi and Bluetooth works on both OSes, but I needed to do the bluetooth enabling hack to make bluetooth work. While it has been 6 years, I believe wireless AC is still the fastest wifi standard, so going for BCM4352 is still the best decision to make.

    By HD, you mean 1080p? I don't think there's one for 2570p. From what I understood from a couple of posts back, the latest mod for the screen is still for 720p resolution, only that the screen is made with different technology resulting in better viewing angles.

    Dumb question, is there a possibility to use m.2 ssd now given the development on disabling the firmware whitelist?

    @adrian_sa please continue your great work. I hope you would be successful in enabling the m.2 slot of wwan. Also, can you please link the website where you found the info about whitelist modding? Thanks

    After a year of using, my eyes are starting to get strained from looking at the monitor. T.T

    I'm still on Sierra 10.12.6. I want Mojave but I have to read more and hear more people who have 2570p reporting they have working Mojave on their machines. I'm trying to solve the reboot issue (laptop would restars instead of shutdown) on Sierra after bridged the wlan usb to usb dock. Good to know hackintoshers are alive in this thread.

    True. The cable works with 2.5" sata hdd.

    Also, I'm a little stumped at the moment. I bought an esata power to sata connector for the purpose of booting off from my 3.5 sata hdd. However, interrupted boot, BIOS cannot find the HDD, nor does Windows 10 or Mac OS Sierra (I'm on dual boot win10 and macOS). Is our elitebook providing power on its esata? There is a guide here about booting off of esata and he seemed to be able to boot (or at least made the bios detect his hdd) just by using that special cable. Mine just doesn't work. Any ideas why?

    Earlier today I checked back to see for replies but having seen none, I decided to bite the bullet. I took my motherboard to an electronics repair shop and asked them to solder the jumper for me. I brought thin cables that I took from a spare USB charger cable, and wires from cat5 ethernet cable. The technician used the the thin cables from the USB cord. I bought this wifi-bt combo card from AliExpress and 802.11ac 867Mbps Wireless-AC For AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352HMB WLAN+Bluetooth BT 4.0 Half Mini PCI-E WIFI CARD AW-CE123H Wi-Fi works natively on Windows 10. Bluetooth needed some searching for driver so I let Windows find it for me, and afterwards, BT worked. Checking back here again to report my progress and am happy that @viasat took the time to give his insight. Thank you nonetheless. I appreciate it. Last upgrade would be to replace the mechanical hdd with SSD, but that's until Black Friday / Cyber Monday arrives. Cheers!
