    Have some bad news… suddenly started getting frequent kernel panic from this mod.

    when I installed, it worked flawlessly until July 25, 2019 when I started getting kernel panic when on battery.

    I knew I had to replace my battery soon, it was just under 90% of design capacity. But the error was always kicked out by iokit specifically from IONVMeFamily 2.1.0

    Bought an iFixit Battery, installed it on 28 July. Calibrated it according to the instructions. Still get at PPT004 warning in the hardware diagnostics program on startup. (battery not functioning correctly).

    I feel however, based on the 22 July system update to Mojave 10.14.5 to 10.14.6, may be the culprit.

    In the meanwhile, i’ve gone back to the original SSD, will try to properly re-calibrate the battery, as during initial phase, the magsafe disconnected momentarily.

    Thankfully, I have a backup machine to work on, albeit a windows-based one. :-( Anywho, will keep y’all posted.

    I just installed the same update last night and also have a Crucial P1 1TB PCI. I will keep you informed. You installed the corrected update not the original right? The original was cause kernel panics across the board. I believe the corrected update came out on July 29th

    Dan -

    Yeah, I’m on the oops-we-casused-kernel-panics-for-everyone-here-try-this macOS update. lol.

    So a strange turn of events…

    In my desperation, after I removed the P1 and put the original back in to see if it was battery or the disk, I made a bootable USB installation of same kernel-panic free updated macOS Mojave 10.14.6, put the P1 back in, ran some diagnostics from USB installation, all clean, and then proceeded to work, KERNEL-PANIC-FREE riiiiight up until yesterday at 10:38:27 (thanks Console.app) while re-syncing my OneDrive account… part of me wonders if I’ve got some corrupt data in there that is causing havoc with the NVMe driver.

    For the time being, I’ve disabled sleep (always happens after it goes to sleep and I wake it up),

    Thanks for the back-n-forth. Will also keep you posted.

    UPDATE:

    I had no luck with clearing the battery error with the iFixit Battery after re-calibrating.

    Things worked well for a brief period: 4 days of no KPs. Cannot identify any corrupt data.

    KPs started up again. In desperation, I opened up the case, and reseated the P1. Again noted that the drive seemed almost loose in the key-slot. Tightened the lock-down screw to a bit more than hand tight.

    That was 24 hours ago, and no KPs after suffering 5 or 6 the day before while trying to get some fricking C-code finished. Thanks to the reprieve, got it done. Now trying to make sure everything is okay.

    I wonder if this still applies for the 2019 model.

    Max Fiedler - Antwoord

    You’d have to see if the SSD is removable, the form-factor etc. perhaps the tear-down is a good place to check.

    • Before proceeding, power down your MacBook. Close the display and lay it on a soft surface, top-side down.

    • Use a P5 Pentalobe driver to remove ten screws securing the lower case, of the following lengths:

    • Two 9 mm screws

    • Eight 2.6 mm screws

    Pulling the fan cable out was terrifying but you actually just pull on the cable itself. No way to get any leverage at the connector to dislodge it. Did come out easily but like I said, scared me!

    Do you have good Test Point Voltages? It appears there are silver colored Test points on the I/O Board. I am working on a water spill and trying to troubleshoot if both the I/O board and the Logic need replaced.

    It's probably not necessary but may be a little safer to completely discharge the old battery before replacing it.

    P5 pentalobe screwdrivers are too big! The correct size for these screws are p4 pentalobe. P5 pentalobe was just able, with difficulty, to turn some of the screws. If the screws were at all tight, my p5 was unable to get them out, and started to strip the screws. A p4 screwdriver fit better and removed the screws with ease. (I was using high quality Wiha brand screwdrivers.)

    William Skinner - Antwoord

    I had same experience (with MacBook Air 13-inch Mid-2012) … had to get P4, which worked swimmingly

    eric -

    Very simple installation. The screwdriver heads were exactly what we’re needed, one head for the outside case screws, the other for the screws holding the battery in place. The computer started right up. Now to see how the battery holds up, but I have a good feeling about this!

    My P5 and the T5 worked perfectly with my early 2015 Air 13”! And it is super fast! Thank you iFixit!

    Pennny Beach - Antwoord

    Nikolay Andreev - Antwoord

    Comments that the P5 pentalobe are too large are absolutely spot-on. There is no way the P5 pentalobe bit I have will work with the MacBook Air without destroying the screws. Hard target search for P4 pentalobe bit in progress…..

    Bonjour j’aimerais changer mon SSD de 128 Go pour en mettre un de 512 Go. Je ne sais pas ce qu’il faut prendre car il faut qu’il soit compatible avec le macbook air A1466. J’aurais vu un Samsung Evo 970 500 Go mais si je ne me trompe pas, il faut un adaptateur.

    Merci pour votre aide.

    chicco33 - Antwoord

    oui, vous aurez besoin d’un adaptateur, pour completez le changement.

    The tool kit should include tweezers for re-inserting the battery connector.

    P5 pentalobe worked perfectly for me. Instructions were spot-on. Antenna connections were a bit fiddly to refit but got them in ok.

    michaelquinnell - Antwoord

    Maybe the problem some are experiencing is that the designations are confusing (blame Apple rather than iFixit). the P2 is also known as PL1. The P5 is also known as PL4. The P6 is also known as PL5. So it is possible to mistake the P6 (PL5) for the P5 (PL4), meaning it (P6-PL5) will be too big, while the P5 (PL4) will be just right. Sort of a 3 Bears explanation, but it is very confusing.

    • Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

    There is a nub on the inside of the case which is attached to the battery. When you try to pull it open, it appears to be attached to the plastic casing of the battery, which sometimes splits. I gently unhooked the nub from the battery before removing the case fully. This seems to happen if the battery has suffered some drop damage (plastic parts broken around screws and parts of plastic frame split). Just an FYI in case your lower case doesn't pull away easily.

  3. Remove the single 2.9 mm T5 Torx screw securing the SSD to the logic board.
    • Remove the single 2.9 mm T5 Torx screw securing the SSD to the logic board.

    I'm using a T5 Torx screwdriver to remove the SSD retaining screw but it's simply not working, the screwdriver seems slightly too big and I even tried plyers to grab the ends of the screw and turn it but that didn't budge. Are the screws super tight or something? I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong

    smokey9112filmz2 - Antwoord

    I would also like to know that, i have the same problem tried using a standard T5 Torx and the Pentalobe P5 screwdriver, but the both dont work/fit

    I opened mine with a T-6.

    airshack - Antwoord

    I ended up using the T5 with a rubber band in between. I wish I would have done this earlier. I stripped a little bit of the screw. You live you learn.

    Am I able to upgrade my Macbook Air early 2015 from 128Mb SSD to the SSD Samsung 960 (EVO or Pro) 1TB or 2TB?

    If so, do a need special adapters?

    I really don’t recommend using M.2 SSD’s!

    As someone who services Mac’s I tend to see the failures and I’l warn you I see a lot of these M.2 drives with adapter with problems. As one of the first diagnostic processes I pop in my custom Apple Samsung SSD to see if the system works with it. If it does I recommend the power to replace the SSD.

  5. Carefully insert the new SSD into the adapter, using the length of old drive as a reference for when the SSD is fully in the adapter.  The lengths should be the same. Insert the SSD and the adapter into the Socket, pushing inward in a straight fashion.

    • When reinstalling the SSD, be sure it is properly seated before reinstalling its retaining screw.

    • NVMe Drives can cause kernel panics due to sleep /hibernation issues. This can be turned off with the following command.

    • From a Terminal, use the following command to disable hibernation: ----"sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0" ---- If you later want to enable hibernation, use: "sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3"

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
