2nd question: I temporary have Asus WiFi USB-AC56 (AC1200) that works excelent. But, when i do USBInjectAll.kext its's stop working but HD cam and Bluetooth start to work,  if i remove USBInjectAll.kext, HD Cam and Bluetooth stop to work, WiFi start to work again.... uuhhh. Also i have ordered DW1820A WiFi that will work good how i know.


so, what i have:



Graphics with Nvidia GTX 1070

WiFi (as I described above)

HD Webcam (as I described above)

Audio with VoodooHDA.kext - not works, then i have installed VoodooHDA-2.8.8.pkg and audio start to works, both, speakers and headphones, but built-in microphone not works (microphone jack not tested)

Keyboard Backlit

Bluetooth (as I described above)


USB2.0 and USB3.0

Strange Working, more not working:

Touchpad (works from time to time, for example do High Sierra loading, works. Then restart - Not works, restart again, not works, restart again - works)

  • GTX 1070 is Pascal and, as such, unsupported in Mojave (which only supports nVidia dGPUs of Kepler generation). So, no, you cannot have graphics working on that dGPU. In previous OS X/macOs versions, Pascal dGPUs require the nVidia Web Driver because they are not natively supported. You'll have to disable the dGPU through patched SSDT in order to save battery life and run exclusively on the HD 630 iGPU of your Kaby Lake i7-7700HQ. That may also exclude external displays if the secondary output ports are physically wired to the dGPU (eg: DP and/or HDMI).
  • Re: CPU power management, you just have to set your Clover config properly and set PluginType to true in ACPI section; that's all. Use Clover Configurator app to that effect.
  • Re: TouchPad, you probably have an I2C model and those are not entirely supported to date.
  • Re: DW1820A, read all our guides + topics related to this card because you have no guarantee that it'll work in your laptop.
  • Re: Fn-Z, what's that meant to do?
