    Hello Elan PS/2 touchpad users! SmartTouchpad kext was decent until Voodoo came with Magic Touchpad integration. Since then our friends with Synaptics PS/2 and I2C touchpads had much better support for their touchpads. Therefore, I have ported Elan support from Linux kernel into VoodooPS2 so that now Elan PS/2 touchpad can also emulate magic touchpad and it means it can support all native macOS gestures, including tools like BetterTouchTool! Why this is not included in VoodooPS2? Because the kext has to be tested first. It works well for me (asus laptop), but I would like to hear feedback from more users, from more devices. Both if it works and if it doesn't. Once it is confirmed the kext works well, it might be merged into VoodooPS2 main project. What should work? Actually, everything. Basic touch, two finger scroll, multitouch, three and more fingers gestures, apple touchpad settings panel - everything. How to install: Just like normal VoodooPS2 controller - just copy the kext to Clover/OC (and add appropriate entries to OC config in case you use OpenCore). If you already have VoodooPS2 controller - just replace the file with this release. Download: https://github.com/BAndysc/VoodooPS2/releases Special thanks to: Kishor Prins and whole Voodoo Input team Please leave feedback even if it works, it will help me to merge it into official Voodoo PS2.

    Enabling 4K External Display I had been seeing some queries about enabling 4K display for E7440 lately so I decided to spend some time on the matter. Unfortunately I don't own or have access to a 4K display but I do have a 2K display to test with. As expected the default settings can only display as high as 1080p. I did some experiments following existing guides found here in the forum and was successful getting 2K to display, I believe it should work for 4K as well. So here are the steps required: 1) Raise the DVMT pre-alloc from 32mb(default on this model) to 128MB in the BIOS. Since you can't access this setting from Dell's BIOS, you'll need to use the EFI shell to accomplish this. See my guide here. Below are the locations found for DVMT Pre-allocated and CFG Lock Set DVMT @ 0x255 to 0x4 Set CFG Lock @ 0xC8B to 0x0 (not sure if this necessary, but it didn't break anything) Here are the commands from EFI Shell: setup_var 0x255 0x4 setup_var 0xC8B 0x0 2) Update Config.plist file from bootpack above under Devices/Properties/PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) the following: framebuffer-cursormem = 00000003 framebuffer-fbmem = 00000003 framebuffer-stolenmem = 00000008 uncomment #framebuffer-unifiedmem by removing the # in front (Optional) That's it. FYI, the DVMT & CFGLock value will restore to default if you ever select Load Default in the BIOS. You'll need to redo the steps in #1 Updating BIOS does not remove the settings.

    While the EM7430 works with my kext. (I guess the product ID needs to be adjusted still). The EM7455 seems not. What I did: Wrote the kext for DW5811e / EM7411 according to the correct PID & VID attached above. Which after it appears on WANN section (location id show xxxxxxxx / 0 as others also have in their screen). Then with the correct APN the error shows: So I updated the firmware and all config settings using LIVE UBUNTU CD 18.04 with: https://github.com/danielewood/sierra-wireless-modems His autoscript is perfect for updating FW, configuring the whole card according to our needs & sets the PID/VID to generic to bypass any vendor locks. Whilst I updated the kext to reflect all MC/EM7455 cards PID/VID (Lenovo / DELL / Generic). Still the error "Network Connection ... " shows. Please also see the location difference: NOTE the firmware: SWI9X30C_02.08.02.00 r5428 CARMD-EV-FRMWR2 2016/01/06 20:38:53 While at!priid? shows the updated firmware: SWI9X30C_02.33.03.00_00_00_GENRIC So I manually check the connection using COM port: screen /dev/tty.wwan 115200 screen /dev/tty.wwan 115200 Which after I'm able to manually connect using at commands. Any ideas where to look? Perhaps it is the interface mapping? <key>InterfaceMapping</key> <dict> <key>0</key> <dict> <key>name</key> <string>wwanDM</string> </dict> <key>2</key> <dict> <key>name</key> <string>wwanGPS</string> </dict> <key>3</key> <dict> <key>name</key> <string>wwan</string> </dict> </dict>

    It's got nothing to do with TrackPad; it's just plain & basic keyboard definition. We've got a few threads on the matter, look them up. You may also give Karabiner app a try. You know, experiment...

    Check if Ukelele contains a Logitech keyboard definition for a German keyboard. https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/2616-keyboard-mappings/?do=findComment&comment=19895 If it does, copy/paste the files into /Library/Keyboard Layouts folder. You'll then have a new German keyboard layout available to pick in your keyboard PrefPane.

    Seems to be a well known issue among the newer CoffeeLake Desktops, guess some laptops too in your case. Found this in the OpenCore guide AWAC system clock. This applies to all 300 series motherboards including many Z370 boards, the specific issue is that newer boards ship with AWAC clock enabled. This is a problem because macOS cannot communicate with AWAC clocks, so this requires us to either force on the legacy RTC clock or if unavailable create a fake one for macOS to play with.

    What button would that be? If you're actually talking about a key such as this: the characters usually are available on some other key(s) of the keyboard. For instance, on a French keyboard, they can be available on this key: which is located left of the 1 key, right above the Tab key. It does not just depend on the kext you use but also on the keyboard layout you've selected in macOS. If it's available at all, select German PC. Alternatively, try one of those Logitech layouts, they may be more suitable.

    This could run Catalina and in dual boot mode of course. No risk of bricking a laptop by trying to install and run macOS on it. Plenty of fully compatible laptops in our guides section though they usually all require a change wireless card by a macOS-compatible one. These days, by far and large it's also Intel iGPU graphics only with very few models able to run on a dGPU. Good Skylake models include the Dell Latitude E7x70 models.

    Not all of your hardware is compatible as already stated by JakeLo. For instance, there is no support for nVidia Pascal graphics cards beyond High Sierra (and they required the Web Driver). I'm not certain your LAN and wireless cards would be supported (I have not checked) and same for your SD card reader. Laptops are not specifically difficult to run as Hackintoshes but, like anything else, some are more difficult than others depending on the hardware specs. Then, of course, there is the added complexity of hardware lockdown, unlike most desktops. This being said, you can follow the general guidance required for any laptops and tuned for Skylake platforms. Let me finish by being crystal clear with regards to the info shown on that last screenshot you posted (now removed): no support for distros such as the one you use and no support for TMX-related installs/tools either. It's specifically stated in our rules which I strongly suggest you read.

    The specs are mostly compatible with Catalina. Make sure you follow the minimum requirements posted in our dedicated thread available in "Our Picks" list. You're likely getting stuck because your Embedded Controller was not renamed.

    hi @Daniel PN You can try my update OC 0.6.0. Enter your own Serial Number and your own device properties, I'm only put graphics and audio on properties. SD Card reader is disable in BIOS due I don't have SD Card for testing it. Wifi card swap form DW1708 to BCM943224PCIEBT2 and Mac OS Using Catalina 10.15.5 (Build 19F101), and touchpad is ALPS V8. My system is touchscreen and working properly with this EFI. I2C kext still using release 2.3 due last time when update to 2.4, the touchscreen is not working. FYI, since I'm use Opencore (0.5.6 - 0.6.0) on my e7270 must add boot option manualy in BIOS. EFI 7270 OC 0.6.0.zip SSDT on this EFI is mixed to 1 file. If you want separated SSDT herewith the file ACPI separated.zip

    @diepnt You were following the desktop guide of OC, SSDT-EHCx_OFF.aml disable your USB ports. USBInjectAll won't help Try my working file with OC v0.5.9, just put the whole folder into a Fat32 formatted drive or replace your Clover EFI folder entirely. The only thing is getting Wifi to work with DW1510. With Clover, I have IO80211Family.kext and IO80211FamilyV2.kext replaced from Mojave to /L/E. I might have to replace it in /S/L/E for OC, not sure. Haven't try yet. Update: Replacing kexts to /S/L/E worked. Wifi working in OC E7440_OC_v0.5.9.zip

    yes it booted indeed , installed then rebooted once to continu the installation (as step 5 in your guide), took about 30 min then got stuck at the end (the apple bar was nearly full) then showed up a message box saying the install cannot be achieved, i uploaded the error log, i tried again removing the vboxhfs reoplacing it by the HFSplus you provided , same error, i needed to use an external mouse during the installation and kept it in during the whole installation until the error showed up, lol the more i use the virtual hackintosh the more i get excited and addicted to it, i'm writing this from the virtual machine Historique de Programme d’installation 9-Jun-2020.txt.zip

    HI, I'm also using BCM943224PCIEBT2 in my Dell e7270 Catalina 10.15.5 with Opencore 0.5.9 and working properly. you need add on device properties , using hackintool you can see the device path , I think it will also work on clover. herewith mine setting on OC config.plist. I believe it work also on clover, but check it firt using hackintool for pcie. And still need AirportBrcmFIxup.kext

    use BrcmPatchRAM3.kext for Catalina Also make sure you have updated Lilu, Whatevergreen, and AppleALC to the latest. Make sure you don't have these same kexts in /L/E or /S/L/E that might be of different version.

    With Catalina 10.15, Apple went further into increasing the security of its OS and the system's/root partition is now locked upon system startup. One of the consequences is that, by default, /System/Library/Extensions folder (/S/L/E) is locked and can not be modified in any way. In the same respect, other reserved folders such as /usr/bin or /usr/sbin are locked too. This can be a problem for such situations where a vanilla kext has to be replaced in /S/L/E or a file of /S/L/CoreServices has to be patched. The trick is basically to mount Catalina's root partition in Read-Write (RW) mode instead of Read-Only (RO) mode. This can be accomplished through Terminal with the following command: sudo mount -uw / followed a restart of the Finder through Terminal command: sudo killall Finder or simply by relaunching the Finder from the Apple menu:

    Well I am sorry, But I am not seeing anything in the menu that says Guides. If you want to quote and tell someone to check a section, it should be clearly labeled with Guide(s) so we can find it. if it is titled ot labeled something other than what you mention, please say what I am looking for. If you are talking about the forum section OS X INSTALLATION GUIDES, then I found it, but I can not say they are very helpful. But I really appreciate your help. Doing a hackintosh is something not to be taken lightly. I look forward to learning more about this and building a few while it is still possible.

    I hear that the DW1802 is Atheros AR4962, and it is supported with Ath9KFixup.kext or Atheros40.kext plugin info.plist edit. I have this same card, and I am going to try this with patched IO80211Family.kext later tonight... I will report my findings here! Not holding out a lot of hope for this Qualcomm AC combo card, but worth a try at least. If it works, I will be so happy (and it will mean I won't have to reinstall a new OS again). Here is the line from "Supported" list: Dell DW1802 NGFF/M.2 168c-0034 AR94621 A/B/G/N Y Y ? ? N (=AR5B22) Y Y is Sierra and High Sierra OOTB... Mojave is ?, but reported working with 10.13.6 kext edit + replacement. It is definitely NOT an AR5B22 tho, and mine is marked Wireless AC as well... it actually is a DW1802 and AR94621 and the Device and Vendor ID are correct too?!?!
