      We were all excited for Apple WWDC 2018 for some updates on mac OS, and also expecting some hardware announcements along to get improved support for latest CPU and GPU hardware. Unfortunately there were no hardware announcements 😟, but we got a nice update from macOS in the name of Mojave (10.14) 😀 (even though its expected every year, but this year they introduced many new user oriented features which are really useful in our day to day activities). It is coming this fall!
      The new macOS Mojave has full of features!

      Here are a list of the new features:

      A new side bar shows full metadata and includes quick actions like routing, markup, and more
      Side bar is contextual and changes based on file type, such as PDF, images, and documents
      Automator actions in the quick actions menu let you make custom buttons for side bar, such as watermarking a PDF

    • Really strange ... masked 3 Pins and worked perfect one day without any issue. Started today and Wifi could not get activated....   What's going on here?  
    • I believe I had explained in may guide that combining compatibility with 14e4:4353 injection + boot parameter brcmfx-driver=1 caused issues to me. Try without the boot parameter.   What's interesting though -and that's probably key- is that your system runs Ok if you restrict the card to 40MHz. But is that on the 5GHz or, presumably, the 2.4GHz network band?  
    • For wifi I accidentally able to get full speed (80MHz ~ 867Mbps) when booting via the clover from https://github.com/the-darkvoid/XPS9360-macOS/commit/c7149ab350682310bf2c091bc0a082cc8f9b66b8.(I was using this repo until my DW1520 break). I'm able to boot by just having brcmfx-driver=1 and added pci14e4,4353 device properties.  After boot up I saw that wifi interface was using AirPortBrcmNIC.kext instead of AirPortBrcm4360.kext and I'm able to get full wifi speed, but the system was getting freeze and hang very often especially when it's consuming high bandwidth 700-800Mbps for long periods. Do you guys have any suggestion? b/w I'm back to 40MHz for now because it's very stable and 300Mbps is not bad at all.  
    • Could the Xeon processor be interfering with things not running as expected? Should I try spoofing a supported CPU Id?
    • Yes, both bluetooth and wifi working perfectly after sleep&wake 👍.  
    • Open Config.plist with Clover Configurator Under Devices, go to Properties, look for PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1c,0x02)/Pci(0x0,0x0) and delete it Go to Kernel and Kext patches, and enable DellSMBIOSPatch Save file Add AirportBrcmFixup.kext to /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other for wifi Add BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext & BrcmPatchRAM2.kext to /L/E for Bluetooth Repair permissions and rebuild cache Reboot
