Your EFI folder is a bit messy.

Delete /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI and install Clover from here with the following settings

  • Clover for UEFI booting only
  • Install Clover in the ESP
  • UEFI Drivers\Recommended drivers
    • AudioDxe
    • DataHubDxe
    • FSInject
    • ApfsDriverLoader
    • AptioMemoryFix
    • HFSPlus
  • Additonal drivers
    • PartitionDxe
  • Themes (optional)
  • Install Clover Preference Pane (optional)

Remove from /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other:

  • BrcmFirmwareRepo <- goes into /L/E not clover kext, you already have BrcmFirmwareData
  • FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics <- not needed with Whatevergree
  • FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio <- not needed with Whatevergreen
  • FakePCIID_XHCIMux <- for USB 2.0 only
  • LiluFriend <- goes in /L/E if you want Lilu and plugins to run from /L/E. Not needed if Lilu and plugins in clover kexts

thanks, Jake .

      I was make the clover to the v2.5k_r5058.

AND  do as you said .

BUT when I close the top ,it sleep and then wake up ,the chrome and the player cannot work.

IT is something wrong with the config.plist??

do you have the problem ?

No issue with sleep / wake on my E7470 but mine don't have touchscreen. I don't think that's related though.

Remove BrcmPatchRAM2 and BrcmFirmwaredata from Clover kext since you already have them cache in /L/E

You can remove FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi and FakePCIID from Clover kexts too or remove from /L/E


I guess HorNDIS.kext is for your wireless, you could try removing it for testing sake.
