    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¬†ūüėü, but we got a nice update from macOS¬†in the name of¬†Mojave (10.14)¬†ūüėĬ†(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!

    • Hi Jake Lo, yes, I set it to ANSI but all combinations with Fn or AltGr do not work. Besides that, it is quite good ¬†
    • User Dr Hurt's VoodooPS2Controller kext r6. Works perfectly on the E6440.
    • Why keyboard type did you set it to? Use ANSI
    • Hello everyone, ¬† unfortunately, on my Latitude E6440¬†the Alt-Gr Key is not working, so that I can't get a pipe-char | or backslash for example. The Fn-Key isn't working either. ¬† Are there others e6440 owners out there, having (had)¬†the same problem? Or someone, who solved that issue? ¬† Looking forward to reading from you. All the best, h123 ¬†
    • Go to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Origin and clear al the files Reboot to Clover GUI, press F4, continue booting Mount EFI partition, compress and attach the Origin folder for review. ¬† For static noise in headphone, download latest CodecCommander.kext and move it to /Library/Extensions Repair permissions and rebuild cache ¬† ¬†
    • You would need to make up your own "Mojave" legacy QMI kext (in case you wondered, the Sierra part of skvo's kext means¬†Sierra Wireless, not macOS Sierra); any legacy QMI kext made for another OS X/macOS version probably won't do because the inner syntax of the CellPhoneHelper kext it's based on will probably have evolved again. Apple has a string tendency to do version after version. ¬† Consider the Legacy_Sierra_QMI kext as an injector. All that it does is define a profile for the target WWAN module based on an existing Sierra Wireless module natively supported by OS X/macOS. Obviously, things that you change in your new hardware definition profile are the module's PCI ids. You obviously still need the CellPhoneHelper kext and make sure you keep this fumble vanilla in /S/LE/. ¬† An alternative to the Legacy_Sierra_QMI kext is to inject the new profile in FakeSMC. I've detailed this in previous WWAN¬†module threads several years ago. ¬†
    • I have a Dell E7450, I have attached the sys profile below. I have been trying to get my DW5808e WWAN card to work. It works fine under CENTOS 7, and I have changed the USBCOMP to 6, I have tried 8 and 14 as well. All work under centos, but cannot seem to get it working under Mojave.¬† ¬† I have installed the Legacy_QMI as posted by Herve in another thread. I have read every thread I can find; however, there appears to be some conflicting information related to Legacy_sierrra_qmi.kext and CellPhoneHelper.kext and the need to have one or both or if either of them are required. I have tried almost every configuration I can find and cannot get the device recognized. There is not /dev/tty device, I see the device under USB in System Report. I do not see the device in the WWAN section.¬† ¬† I am sure I am missing something, but for the life of me I cannot seem to find it.¬† ¬† TIA, ¬† Tony¬† ¬† debug_19592.zip
