I have the following Dell Laptop running Mojave. 

 

Dell inspiron 5558 Haswell i3-4030u

-HD4400 works

-Ethernet Works

-Touchscreen Does not work

-Sound Works

-Wifi intel - Will never work

-Usb - Works

Battery works

-Webcam Does not work

 

I noticed most people with this laptop have the touchscreen working once they install OSX but it does not work for me. Anyone know what I am missing?

 

thanks

Jake,

 

It was definitely a usb issue. Thanks for pointing it out. Now working on the audio. I was using voodooHDA but the audio would sometimes disappear when i rebooted. Working on getting AppleALC to work

 

thanks for the help

Jake,

 

I took the short route, but i really should build the USBport.kext

 

EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other >> USBInjectAll.kext

 

Library/Extensions >> GenericUSBXHCI.kext, FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext, XHCI-unsupported.kext

 

I rebuilt the kext cache with sudo kextcache -i / and after reboot the following devices appeared in system information, Hardware > usb

 

Touchscreen, Bluetooth-HCI, Integrated_Webcam_HD, USB2.0-CRW (All internal to the laptop)

 

I attached a picture. Haven't tested USB3.0 yet

 

Still need to order some Dell Wifi cards that will be compatible with Mojave. Using a USB one for now but it is only 802.11n speeds

 

thanks
