    Thank you for following up!

    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.

    joshuafiddler -

    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.

    joshuafiddler - Ответить

    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.

    Awesome to hear, I am running 10.14.6 and not having any issues.

    Dan -

    I wonder if this still applies for the 2019 model.

    Max Fiedler - Ответить

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

    thanks for the feedback!

    Dan -

    From what i read before, for a MacBook Air early 2015, we have confirmed that the following work fine :

    a. One Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD

    b. One M.2 NGFF M-Key SSD Convert Card to Nvme PCI-E.

    But which adapter ? There are several brands ranging from €10-€40 … Any thoughts ?

    Can anyone confirm the overall length of the original M2 ssd on the above MacBook air ? The Crucial M2 states total length of 80mm. Has anyone the length of the adapter that fits ?

    Also will the above work on a MacBook Air early 2015 with latest High Sierra 10.13.6 ? I am not ready to migrate to the new file system on Mojave.

    • 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!

    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 - Ответить

    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!

    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.

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

    michaelquinnell - Ответить

    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.

    I have not replaced a display on the A1369 but have done many A1466 which is a newer 13” model. They seem really similar and its not clear why one needs to remove the logic board to remove the display. The antenna cables on the A1466 dont have to rest under the logic board but can be tucked in the hinge crevice. Cant this same thing be done with the A1369?

    • 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.

    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

Hi Dan,

In 2015 MBA guide, you noted that:

“The 2015 MBA only has 4 PCI-e lanes so you will not be able to take full advantage of NVMe drives*”

How many PCI-e lanes are there in 2017 MBA?

I’m wondering if the 2017 MBA would be able to take the full advantage of the NVMe drives.

Update: MBA 13” 2015 4 PCI-e lanes

I did a google research.

Seems that both MBA 13” 2015 and MBA 13” 2017 both has 4x PCI-e 3.0

The blog written about this classify MBA 2015 and 2017 as “Generation 4”.

See “Generation 4” section in this blog: https://beetstech.com/blog/apple-proprie...

The blog further commented that for MBA 13” 2015 and MBA 13” 2017, the hardware is PCIe 3.0, but this product line doesn’t support PCIe 3.0 (See “MacBook Air (Early 2015 - Mid 2017)” section): ''

- “The 13″ MacBook Air used the same Gen. 4A drives as the rest of Apple’s product lines, but didn’t support the PCIe 3.0 connection the newer drives were capable of. “

- MBA 2015 (PCIe 3.0) only had a modest improvement over MBA 2013/2014 (PCIe 2.0): “Early 2015 release still saw read/write speeds that were 90-120% faster than the 2013/2014 models”

Do you think it’s true that MBA 13” 2015 and 2017 cannot support PCIe 3.0?

Did you hear of success stories of upgrading MBA 13” 2015 or 2017 to NVMe?

Hey Tyson, you will certainly notice a speed difference, depending on the drive you chose some more than others, but sadly all the MBA only have PCI 2.0 you will achieve solid perforce but it will not be the same as the claimed speed by the drive maker.
