    What happened at Apple WWDC 18? macOS Mojave unveiled

    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!

    • One problem remains for having full working system. I'm using the folder you sent me but I'm having audio problem. Audio is fine from internal speakers but when I connect headphones , they are recognised , but audio is a mess with a high frequence pitch.
    • boot with verbose + debug 0x100 so you can see where it KP
    • Hi griftopia, I have same laptop as your's except cpu difference, I have tried many ways to let mojave to working, but finally failed, Could you share your complete EFI folder? 10x Thanks.
    • The purpose of this post is to provide a solution for anyone who might want to use the wireless switch on this model of laptop. It will enable toggling the wifi and bluetooth power (as well as wifi LED see Note 2) in a manner similar to Windows by using the switch. Download the attached zip file then extract its contents to a temporary folder and follow the instructions below.   Configuration:   Dell Latitude E6230 Laptop Dell DW380 Bluetooth Module (built in) Supported wireless card   DSDT Patches:   The following two patches are required. The first enables the switch ACPI notification by simulating Windows 8. The second will assign the unused F17 key through the VoodooPS2Keyboard ACPI keystroke function. Open your DSDT source file in MaciASL, click Patch and paste the code in the top section then click Apply and save the new DSDT file. Copy it to the Clover-ACPI-patched folder and restart.   #Add Darwin check to Method OSID. into_all method code_regex If\s+\([\\]?_OSI\s+\(WIN8\)\) replace_matched begin If(LOr(_OSI("Darwin"),_OSI(WIN8))) end; #Use VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext ACPI keystroke function. into method label NRBT replace_content begin If (LGreaterEqual (OIDE (), One))\n {\n //Use F17 key for wireless switch\n Notify (^^PCI0.LPCB.PS2K, 0x0368)\n }\n end;   Wireless Switch Support:   Copy Wireless Switch Service.workflow to ~/Library/Services Open terminal and type: sudo cp blueutil /usr/local/bin Copy activate_services.app to a local profile folder of your choice. Add activate_services.app to System Preferences - Users & Groups - Login Items (See Note 1) Go to System Preferences - Keyboard - Shortcuts then click on Services on the left. Scroll down to Wireless Switch Service under General on the right then click Add Shortcut Click the wireless switch on the side of the laptop to add it as F17 Close System Preferences then click Finder - Services on the menu bar. The Wireless Switch Service should be displayed in the list. Click off the Services Menu without selecting anything and click the wireless switch again to test.   Notes:   activate_services.app is needed to automatically refresh the Services menu after logging in due to a long standing bug in Mac OS (detailed here) that prevents single key shortcuts functioning for Automator scripts. Without it the Wireless Switch Service won’t work until the menu is displayed. An additional feature when using the internal Dell Bluetooth module is the wifi light will come on if there is a paired device (such as a phone in my case) present in the Bluetooth settings. Bluetooth is enabled using Rehabman’s BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM.kext on my system.   This procedure can likely be adapted by others for use with other laptops that have either a wifi switch or hotkey.   Credits:   WiFi Toggle Service/Script: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/194368/turn-wifi-off-on-with-a-single-key   Blueutil: https://github.com/toy/blueutil wireless.zip
    • I did everything you suggested but nothing, is rebooting. 
    • Try this, replace these into /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other The 2 you have are a bit outdated Audio.zip
    • Add DropTableID CpuPM and rename it to CpuSsdt Simple as that
