Move Lilu.kext from /S/L/E to /L/E

AirportBrcmFixup.kext won't load without it in the same location.

Repair permissions and rebuild cache. 

Or move both to Clover kext. Same for Whatevergreen in Clover kexts, missing Lilu.kext.

DW1550 requires patching:

  1. card PCI id injection either through DSDT or Brcm4360 kext patching; you may also use Rehabman's fake PCI id kexts as an alternative
  2. possible further patching to enable 5GHz band support (aka "fcvo" patch)

Thank you Jake Lo and Herve for your help.

 

Jake I have done as you have suggested , however still no WIFI , I have also added into L/E.   BroadcomWiFiInjector.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext

 

Herve there is no BRCM4360 kext in Mojave unless I am missing something? 

 

I don't know how to do PCI id injection through DSDT however this sounds like a good option , would either of you be able to guide me on how to do do PCI id injection through DSDT I have MaciASL which I think is the correct app to patch my DSDT.

 

Thanks again.

Details are provided in the 1st link I posted, you have to read it. I'd patch this for you but I could not see your Wifi card in the IOReg you provided. Make sure wireless is not disabled in BIOS...

 

As for the Brcm4360 kext, well... it's a PlugIn of IO80211Family kext in /S/L/E.

When I goto Clover configurator and goto kexts to patch and enter the name AirPortBrcm4360  and the follow the instructions below

 

<dict><key>Comment</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360 - fcvo</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>gflSqgAAdSk=</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>gflSqgAAZpA=</data> </dict>

 

after I enter gflSqgAAdSk= into find with or without the = it then says FAAD?

Thank you Herve when I enter gflSqgAAdSk = into the Base64 to HExa converter tool in CC I get the following message Invalid base64 data , however when I enter gflSqgAAdSk = data into the text to Hex tool in CC I get a value , so I have patched the AirPortBrcm4360  with the values I shared in my post above using the using the text to Hex converter in CC then repair permissions and rebuild cache still no wifi ? I have uploaded an image from CC for you too look at

@satchitananda

 

when you replace something, it must be of the same length...Go ahead and remove it. AirPortBrcm4360 - fcvo patch is already integrated into FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext

Add this to Device FakeID under wifi 0x433114e4 in Config file

and since you already have FakePCIID.kext already in /L/E, add to it FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext

Repair permissions and rebuild cache
