    I'll keep an eye on the clock speed and temperatures for a few days but it looks like this mess is finally solved for good, fingers crossed!

    Well it's going to be hard to solve with such information... I have installed Pop!_OS 19.10 and 20.04 several times on this machine and never had any issue with the install process.

    Hey man, I'm planning to install pop too on the same system. Did you have to do anything specified in this thread during the pop installation to get it working? Anything I should look out for?

    thanks

    First of all, I want to thank you for this guide, literally saved my day last week and has been user-friendly enough even for a 15 years away from Linux user to understand.

    I only upgraded the kernel to 5.7.11 (as of July 29th) which also fixes nVidia Graphics, so if someone is struggling about it with 5.6 or with the patching of 5.4 (I got a lot of errors on the diff command so I went on to the latest stable kernel), this is a good option.
    And if you want to update the tutorial, the 5.4 kernel patch is not working anymore (at least, it didn't for me).

    Code:
    mkdir kernel5.7.11 && cd kernel5.7.11
    
    wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.7.11/amd64/linux-headers-5.7.11-050711-generic_5.7.11-050711.202007290540_amd64.deb
    wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.7.11/amd64/linux-headers-5.7.11-050711_5.7.11-050711.202007290540_all.deb
    wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.7.11/amd64/linux-image-unsigned-5.7.11-050711-generic_5.7.11-050711.202007290540_amd64.deb
    wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.7.11/amd64/linux-modules-5.7.11-050711-generic_5.7.11-050711.202007290540_amd64.deb
    
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    Hi, i've been following this thread for a while looking for a solution on this issue. So far i haven't been able to get rid of the thermal throttle, mainly because i can't update the kernel of due to the speed of the laptop when it's throttled, so i'm looking for any linux image with kernel 5.7+ preinstalled. @albator1932: Does Pop! comes with this or you also had to update? I would appreciate any help as i need to work on my thesis on linux in this laptop. Thanks

    Hello! Sorry for off topic but can you recommend some model please? Something with a bit shorter Ubuntu instruction
