Hey! I have a perfectly working Dell latitude e6430 with Wi-Fi dongle only external device. Everything Else works ok.


What problems will i face if i just press update to High Sierra?

Yes you can upgrade directly to HS but you need to update a few things first:

1) upgrade to latest Clover

2) update kexts if there are newer version

3) update Config file using latest Clover Configurator


Brightness control has change since 10.12.4. If you're upgrading from older OS X, you'll need to update the kext and patches as well.

I think I had posted a High Sierra bootpack for this model somewhere, use the search option 

See here for more info regarding upgrading to HS

Now. What kexts do I need to update?



And how do I do the config file update thing. I downloader clover configurator. Sorry if I'm stupid but i just don't know which kexts to download and where to put them.


Thanks :)

there is a photo. All i did recently was i used kext Wizard to install applehda and some other kexts. Then i did everything i could to config.plist change in the Clover configurator. I ”Created” some random numbers to the firmware features and the other sections. Put on the fixheaders.


it is Simply giving Kernel Extensions in backtrace:






waiting for remote debugger connection
