    Last update: 11 Apr 2019 I've finally been able to play with that card on a laptop, fitted with an M.2 2230 Key A+E WLAN slot, that I targeted for Mojave. /!\ The 1st thing I want to report is that I encountered difficulties booting my Mojave USB installer and installing macOS with the card plugged in and without any particular tuning for it. I had to disable wireless in BIOS to be able to install Mojave. Once it was installed, booting Mojave with wireless enabled in BIOS would cause quite severe lag and performance degradation once at the desktop, as if the card just clogged up CPU ressources. /!\ Searching through the Web for that DW1820A/BCM4350, I came accross a few forum posts/threads that mentionned: rolling back the Yosemite IO80211Family kext to get the card to work, although with instability and regular KPs removing AirPortBrcmNIC plugin kext from IO80211Family kext, patching AirPortBrcm4360 plugin kext with the id of the DW1820A and installing AirportBrcmFixup kext with a couple of parameters (Credits to Hugotai, cf. his post @Voldemort's place, 2nd Dec 2018) Whilst I did not really contemplate doing the 1st thing, I did envisage the 2nd one and started to look at the differences between Yosemite's version of IO80211Family kext and Mojave's. The main difference I had already noticed was that device id 14e4:43a3 was handled by AirPortBrcm4360 up to Sierra 10.12 and by AirPortBrcmNIC since High Sierra 10.13. Building on Hugotai's success, I seeked to work out an easier solution that would not require kext removal and Info.plist patching but, instead, something that could be implemented through hardware properties injection, either through DSDT patching or Clover configuration. Once Hugotai's solution was verified and confirmed, I worked out the following Clover-based solution for HighSierra/Mojave: identify the IOReg/ACPI device to which the DW1820A card is attached (use IORegistryExplorer app to that effect) inject the following properties either in DSDT or through Clover (latter recommended): compatibility of the card with Broadcom chips 14e4:4331 or 14e4:4353 that are handled by IO80211Family's PlugIn kext AirPortBrcm4360 optionally, add SysProfiler's cosmetic info such as PCIe Slot, card's make and model, etc. if your raw/BIOS DSDT has no individual entry under the PCI root bridge for the device, select "FixAirport" ACPI Fix in Clover. That'll create a device "ARPT" @0 under the root bridge and that's what you'll inject properties to. and that's it ! Nothing to do to IO80211Family kext ir its PlugIns which all remain untouched/unmodified/full vanilla in /S/L/E. It really could not be simpler... NB: if your card's country code requires to be changed, add the following steps: install AirportBrcmFixup kext in /L/E + repair permissions + rebuild your cache or inject it through Clover's EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other add boot argument brcmfx-country=XX (where XX is the target value, eg: US, FR, #a, etc.) to the Boot section of your Clover config but, beware, I found that using AirportBrcmFixup has some non-negligable negative impact on wireless performance (much reduced rate). Example: On my laptop, the DW1820A was found attached to device RP03.PXSX located at IO address 0x001C0002, i.e. 1C,2. The DSDT patch required to inject properties could look like this (devices names will differ from one computer to another of course!): Device (RP03) // PCIe Root Bridge { name (_ADR, 0x001C0002) [...] [...] [...] Device (PXSX) // DW1820A card attached to this device (FixAirport fix required if such device is missing) { Name (_ADR, Zero) [...] [...] [...] Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }) } Return (Package () { "AAPL,slot-name", // Optional Buffer () { "WLAN" }, "device_type", // Optional Buffer () { "Airport Extreme" }, "name", // Optional Buffer () { "Airport" }, "model", // Optional Buffer () { "Dell DW1820A 802.11ac wireless" }, "compatible", // Mandatory Buffer () { "pci14e4,4331" // Declares compatibility with BCM94331; "pci14e4:4353" for BCM43224 may also be used } }) } } } An easier alternative is to inject those properties in Clover via Clover Configurator app. This can be done within the Devices section by injecting the desired properties in the Properties sub-section: In the left part, add the PCIe address of the targeted device in the form PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(<root device address>)/Pci(<actual device address>) In the right part, add the above properties in single lines and with the right types (String, Data, Number) For instance, in the case of my laptop, the target device will be PciRoot (0x0)/Pci(0x1C,0x02)/Pci(0x0,0x0) for PCI0@0->RP03@1C,2->PXSX@0. Then, properties will be injected as lines of keys of 3 x possible types: strings, hex data blocks or numbers. For instance, to declare compatibility with 14e4:4353, the line will consist of Property Key set to compatible, Key Value set to pci14e4,4353 and Key Type set to STRING. The complete properties injection will be: Device = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1c,0x02)/Pci(0x0,0x0) Key = compatible | Value = pci14e4,4353 | Type = STRING Key = AAPL,slot-name | Value = WLAN | Type = STRING (optional) Key = device_type | Value = Airport Extreme | Type = STRING (optional) Key = name | Value = Airport | Type = STRING (optional) Key = model | Value = Dell DW1820 (BCM4350) 802.11ac wireless | Type = STRING (optional) Once the device properties are injected in Clover or DSDT, there's nothing left to do but reboot the computer. The DW1820A card will then be fully active and capable to connect to 2.4/5GHz networks at full speed. On the Bluetooth side, once the usual Rehabman's kexts are installed (BrcmFirmwareRepo + BrcmPatchRAM), the BT4.1 module will be fully operational and capable of supporting AirDrop and Handoff!

    Mojave Clover Guide Warning: Follow guide at your own risk, I hold no responsibility if you brick your system or destroy all data during the process. If you're creating the installer from a real Mac, make sure you don't accidentally select the real Mac drive when installing Clover loader. It may cause your Mac to not boot again. You've been warned! New Installation BIOS: Set to Default, apply, then set SATA Operations to AHCI, set Boot List Option to UEFI, Disable Secure Boot Note: By default, upgrading or new Install of Mojave on an SSD drive, it'll automatically convert to APFS format. (1) Create the USB installer via Terminal with "createinstallmedia" (a minimum of 16GB UFD is needed or an external USB drive) sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"target_USB" --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction Note: target_USB = name of the USB drive you're writing to. When done, USB Drive will automatically renamed to "Install MacOS Mojave" (2) Install Clover with following config, add appropriate Bootpack to /EFI/Clover UEFI: Install for UEFI booting only Install Clover in the ESP Drivers64UEFI\DataHubDxe-64 Drivers64UEFI\FSInject-64 Drivers64UEFI\SMCHelper-64 Drivers64UEFI\ApfsDriverLoader-64 Drivers64UEFI\AptioMemoryFix-64 Drivers64UEFI\PartitionDxe-64 Install Clover Preference Pane Finally add to Drivers64UEFI\HFSPlus.efi (not included in Clover installer) (3) Boot with the USB installer, start Disk Utility and initialize your SSD as an APFS drive, name it "Mojave". You can partition drive now if preferred. Close Disk Utility, select Install MacOS. (4) System will auto reboot after files has been copied (5) Boot with USB installer, select "Boot macOS Install from Mojave". Installation will continue installing and reboot (Might have to do this rebooting a couple of times) (6) Boot with USB installer, finish the customization (7) Follow post install steps from Post # 1 Upgrading to Mojave Before upgrading, do the following: (1) Update to latest Clover (2) Upgrade kexts you're currently using found under /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ and kexts you have installed to /L/E or /S/L/E Common links for new kexts: https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/releases https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/blob/master/KnownPlugins.md https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/ (3) Make sure it's still bootable with the above 2 updates (4) Follow this guide to update Config file and generate USBPort kext Note: Mojave, Lilu + WhateverGreen You cannot use the Clover's KextsToPatch for framebuffer patching in Mojave for Skylake and above MacOS 10.14.1+ does not work with the USB port limit patch, so best to create the USBPort kext in HS Some Mojave bootpack links: E7x70 (Skylake), might work on similar Skylake systems with some tweaks https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/9179-dell-latitude-e7x70-clover-uefi-only/?do=findComment&amp;comment=86790 E7x50 (Broadwell), might work on similar Broadwell system with some tweaks https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/8514-dell-latitude-e7450-clover-uefi-only/?do=findComment&amp;comment=86791 E7x40 (Haswell), might work on similar Haswell system with some tweaks https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/6472-dell-latitude-e7240e7440/?do=findComment&amp;comment=86943 /!\ When posting for HELP, please include full system specs and attach debug files.

    DisableTurboBoostBatery.kext doesn't work with VirtualSMC.kext and SMCBatteryManager.kext. Problem is here: void DisableTurboBoostBattery::actOnChangedPowerState() { if (pPowerSource && isOnAC != pPowerSource->externalChargeCapable() && pPowerSource->batteryInstalled()) { if ((isOnAC = pPowerSource->externalChargeCapable())) enable_tb(); else disable_tb(); } } Reason is simple - externalChargeCapable returns different values with VirtualSMC.kext and SMCBatteryManager.kext than with FakeSMC.kext and ACPIBatteryManager.kext. ExternalChargeCapable property has same value as ExternalConnected in case of FakeSMC.kext and ACPIBatteryManager.kext. On battery both values are false, on charger both values are true. With VirtualSMC.kext and SMCBatteryManager.kext only ExternalConnected property change value. It's true on charger and false on battery. ExternalChargeCapable is always true. This is the reason why disable_tb() is never called with VirtualSMC.kext and SMCBatteryManager.kext and Turbo Boost remains active. Fix should be simple as this: void DisableTurboBoostBattery::actOnChangedPowerState() { if (pPowerSource && isOnAC != pPowerSource->externalConnected() && pPowerSource->batteryInstalled()) { if ((isOnAC = pPowerSource->externalConnected())) enable_tb(); else disable_tb(); } } This should work in both usage cases - VirtualSMC.kext with SMCBatteryManager.kext and FakeSMC.kext with ACPIBatteryManager.kext. VirtualSMC implementation of ExternalChargeCapable looks proper based on documentation: ExternalConnected Type: bool IORegistry Key: kIOPMPSExternalConnectedKey True if computer is drawing external power ExternalChargeCapable Type: bool IORegistry Key: kIOPMPSExternalChargeCapableKey True if external power is capable of charging internal battery

    LAST UPDATED: 11 APRIL 2019 Hi all, I am very excited to finally hack this world famous GPU mining motherboard and pleased to share with you all the clover bootpack. Specification Asrock H81 BTC Pro Ver 2.0 4th Gen 3.5 GHz i3-4330 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz Memory Intel Graphics HD 4600 HDMI output on 24-inch LED Monitor (1920 x 1080) Clover Bootpack The Clover bootpack can be downloaded from the following link: CLOVER 10.14.4.zip Support for Mac OS Majave 10.14.4 (Clover 4910) CLOVER 10.14 Beta 4.zip Support for Mac OS Mojave 10.14 Beta 4 18A326h (Clover 4586) CLOVER 10.14 Beta.zip Support for Mac OS Mojave 10.14 Beta 18A293U (Clover 4517) CLOVER 10.13.6.zip Support for Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6 (Clover 4635) CLOVER-V4.zip Support for Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.4 (Clover 4428) Updated all kexts to latest versions CLOVER-V3.zip Support for Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.2 (Clover 4360) Updated all kexts to latest versions CLOVER-V2.zip Support for Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.1 (Clover v4293) Updated all kexts to latest versions Added IntelGraphicsFixup.kext and Shiki.kext Combined all ATI & Intel GPU configs & kexts into single bootpack for multi GPU support CLOVER-Intel.zip Support for Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.1 (Clover v4293) with Intel Graphics CLOVER-ATI.zip Support for Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.1 (Clover v4293) with ATI Graphics General Notes (1) The UEFI Bios does not detect Clover EFI natively. For first boot into Mac OS, you will need to boot Clover EFI using the Installer USB. In order to add Clover EFI into UEFI Bios, you will need to manually add it using the Clover UEFI shell using the following command:- (a) bcfg boot add 3 fsX:\EFI\BOOT\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.EFI "Clover" (You will need to replace X with the location of your Clover EFI partition. This is shown in the list when you first enter the UEFI shell) (b ) Lastly, do bcfg boot mv 3 0 to move the Clover boot order to the first. (2) I found that this motherboard is very compatible with Mac OS and patched DSDT / SSDT is not required. Notes on Mac OS Mojave 10.14.4 (1) Everything works (2) Whatevergreen.kext now autodetects the graphics card. Make sure no graphics injection is done in Clover. Notes on Mac OS Mojave 10.14 Beta 4 18A326h (1) Everything works (2) Updated from Mac OS Majave 10.14 Beta 18A293U via Software Update in the System Preference. Notes on Mac OS Mojave 10.14 Beta 18A293U (1) Everything works including sleep. (2) Dedicated GPU Radeon Pro 560 not displaying on monitor. May need to wait for WhateverGreen.kext to be updated with support for this Mac OS version. Notes on Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.1 (1) Everything works including sleep. (2) For those that need to update 10.13 to 10.13.1, you will need to install the latest clover (version 4293 is the one I used). If there are error messages, you may try to remove EmuVariableUefi-64.efi from Clover EFI temporarily, clear NVRAM using sudo nvram -c in terminal, download the update directly from apple website and install. Notes on Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.2 (1) Everything works including sleep. (2) For those updating from 10.13.1 to 10.13.2, you will need to install the latest clover and lilu including plugins (or download latest bootpack above) as well as download and install the update directly from apple website. Updating via App Store doesnt seem to work for me as I get the mkpg not found error message after reboot. Notes on Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.4 (1) Everything works including sleep. (2) For those updating from an earlier version of 10.13 to 10.13.2, you will need to install the latest clover and lilu including plugins (or download latest bootpack above) as well as download and install the update directly from apple website. The OS X installer will reboot several times. Notes on Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6 (1) Everything works including sleep. Notes on Mining (1) As all you miners know, this motherboard can take up to six (6) GPUs, I have yet to test additional GPU on the PCIEx1 slots. At the moment, the single GPU that i'm using is installed on the PCIEx16 slot. I will test it once I have opportunity to get additional GPU. In the mean time, for those miners who already have this motherboard in their rig and are already using Windows or Linux, Mac OS may be a good OS to try since some miners (like ethereum's ethminer) are also released for Darwin and both NVIDIA and ATI have provided drivers for their latest GPUs. This does open up a good possibily of using Mac OS for GPU mining! (2) I was able to use the dedicated RX560 GPU for both as primary display as well as for mining. However, it causes the system to slow down and created artifacts when I rebooted / shutdown. I was able to make the system more stable by using the integrated HD4600 GPU as primary display and the dedicated RX560 GPU for mining. In order to use both integrated GPU and dedicated GPU, both Intel and ATI need to be injected by Clover. In the case of ethereum miner, ethminer was able to recognized all GPU but I only selected the RX560 for mining. This made the system more stable. (3) [10-11-2017] I just installed a third old AMD Radeon HD 7750 GPU on the first PCIEx1 slot and am very happy to see that Mac OS recognized it straight away. In the case of ethereum miner, ethminer was able to recognized all GPU. Attached pictures below:- 22nd December 2017 Update (4) One of my main concern is I am still not able to get HWMonitor to show GPU temperature which is very important to monitor the current health of the GPUs. We would not want the GPU to overheat due to unforeseen reasons. Let me know if you are able to solve this issue. (5) During my discussion with crew member Rhyker, we were discussing on ways to tune the GPU from within Mac OS. As you know, currently the manufacturer only provide tuning software for Windows and to a limited extend Linux. We were thinking of running Windows under a virtual machine to access the GPU tuner to tune the GPUs. However, based on my last attempt, accessing native GPU from a virtual machine is still not possible although there are projects that are attempting to do this. Let me know if this idea is workable. Let me know if the clover bootpack works for you. Credits goes to Jake Lo and Bronx Teck Cheers!

    Search for PW934, that should get you the same card. For the card you have which is DW1520 to work, you can change your SMBIOS to MBA5,1 or MBA5,2, but AirDrop might not work as it doesn't work for me.

    Last update: 17 Sep 2017 UPDATE: 17 - 09 - 2017 Just wanted to clear few things about my commitments to community, and development on my projects which has been going slow due to my personal life as I have been hit really hard since an year, and I am trying to sort out personal things still. So decided to take timeout on my commitments to my projects and put my attention on personal life first. Don't expect any regular updates on this project and others projects of mine till end of this year 2017. It does not mean I will not be working, and it is just that I won't post any update or respond to you all unless I have something worth to share. I know many of you are disappointed with me and some of my choices/decisions for the last one year, but believe me I had no other option and good reason for that. So your patience will be rewarded properly once I have started releasing updates as I have big plans and willing to commit myself to long term development, and I apologize for not keeping up with promises so far. In case I fail to keep up like I promised above, then I will give up and release all of my work to others to continue. Hope you understand and support me with beta tests when I need them Thanks Hi everyone, This is a multitouch driver for ELAN, FocalTech and Synaptics touchpad for Mac OS X based on the documentations available and some ideas from VoodooPS2, ApplePS2 and Linux open source code. I have successfully accomplished everything so far and added many new features to take advantage the touchpad completely to make it close to Apple touchpad in every way. Also my driver is implemented with my own universal logic for all the features, so it can be adapted to all touchpads easily and I'm still improving these to achieve even better results. My driver supports every hardware version of ELAN touchpads except version 1 (which is too old and can't find in existing notebooks will support that if i get some testers), mostly all available FocalTech touchpads and Synaptics touchpads (still experimental) with firmware version v7.5+. NOTE: For Synaptics, it was developed based on my touchpad hardware i have, so support is limited to touchpad with firmware version 7.5+ only, but will try to improve support other hardwares also if users interested in my features and help me with beta testing. FOR BUG REPORTING: Please read the below threads which explain the features after installing the driver, so you can understand and learn how to use every feature. If anyone still have doubts/issues then PM me to get help from myself (or) post them in other thread about issues so others can help you. I will respond to you mostly during weekends only for some time. FEATURES DETAILS: (UPDATED FOR v4.6) Touchpad features: Click here to learn Keyboard features: Click here to learn Supports OS X version 10.6 or later (10.6 support is only from v4.4) For Prefpane, try to install the version from this link, and add the prefpane to start up items: http://www.hackintosh.zone/file/997-correct-preference-pane-trackpad-macos-sierra/ UPDATE: 06-06-17 Hi everyone, It has been long time since I have given you all an update on my development. The reason for this was I had a pretty rough personal life and busy time in my job last few months, so I was really under big stress and had busy days which did not allow me to do any progress on my projects. Good news is that I was able to sort some of my issues, and find some time to continue my projects again. I have already done some analysis on my project, and figured that I had to do some major code rewrite (most of the code was depending around work arounds which are not optimized well for the time being back then) in order to better support future hardwares and also improve features with ease. My plan is Setup a way to support and track bugs from users Setup a way to gather feedback from users Re-build the project from the scratch with good design for cross-platform support in mind, to support multiple touchpad vendors and interfaces (thinking about I2C) as universal driver Refactor the project code with as much clean code (so when I make it open others can understand) as possible of mine from the scratch Finish basic features (Keyboard and Mouse emulation) Integrate basic vendor specific features Develop and Integrate basic prefpane of mine Release first beta to test Integrate and implement my old driver features one by one for better stability Update prefpane for new features and release another beta Update and improve support for newer hardware based on linux and other sources Finish integrating all the features of old driver by reviewing each one with community feedback Add new features and improve it's stability and performance I have big list of TODO's, but I promise this time that I will try to finish each of them as soon as possible with a beta release happening very soon before the end of this month in best case. Understand your patience is really needed here, as I do not want to rush and have limited time of mine. Also, I am gonna give weekly update on my progress if possible when I have finished my milestones. I will try to respond to your PM during weekends, and if you want to be beta tester then send me your skype ids with GMT time via PM. One more thing, current version of my driver is deprecated and so will not be continuing this. But, I will try to give you some support if there is a need before I finish my new version of driver for any issues which are not big enough for time being. Thanks for your support and co-operation. PS: Sorry for those who want my project to be open sourced now, as I cannot do that until I finish above TODO's. Hope you understand, and support me as I really worked hard on this project. I have worries to get this open right now, and understand that with more people development can progress faster but opening this right now might create issues and end myself supporting to the development in the long run due to fragmentation. I would request you to go through plist editing for controlling the features (as I have a lot of them and its important users to know about those details, because it will allow the driver to be tweaked as you want and my default values are not going to be best for every touchpad or user) for now (will make my own prefpane very soon within 3 months, and its a promise). Going to update my thread which details the features every week one after another for keeping it updated with latest version. Version v4.7 beta 5 (10 - 12 - 2016) (work in progress, available to try from attachments). Added back feature multi finger drag due to users request (can be dragged using 1-3f, Note: This drag wont be as smooth as 1f because the data is not as good as 1f in 2-3f which is why I stopped working on this long time ago, but currently it works nicely and usable in my touchpad. So its usage varies to each touchpad). You have to hold fingers for 2-3 sec at fixed position and move to trigger drag. Improved support for Sierra Support for new style prefpane (most of the features wont control my feature, but I will fix them by next weekend to match them) [Drag, scroll, double click speed can be controlled inside Accessibility Settings->Mouse & Trackpad] [Experimental] USB mouse can now stop trackpad if you enable Accessibility setting of Ignore Trackpad [Works only in 10.10 or lower (?). Will find a way for new OS X versions asp] Improved scroll inertia with more control options in Plist to choose Fixed Sierra Caps Lock bug using a workaround Fixed a bug with some new ELAN touchpads which have issues with virtual buttons acting weird if pointing was enabled at button area, so added option to diable/enable this in plist Fixed sierra OS X functions like Launchpad, Dashboard, Mission control etc., which are not working by redirecting to new keyboard shortcuts. (Needs to be configured at Keyboard shortcuts) Updated support for Asus keyboard backlight with two levels Several minor bug fixes and improvements And more to come as am still looking at improving others things that are buggy and also using feedback from users Version v4.6.5 Released Major code optimizations Updated support for 10.12 (Still some Fn keys wont work, will try to fix close to release) Added plist options to control Apple Trackpad prefpane values for 10.12 Several bug fixes and improvements Version v4.6 Fixed CapsLock key change plist option Fixed a firmware bug in ELAN v3 hardware Updated driver to accept new revisions of ELAN Touchpad to be recognized as Version 4 Added plist option to disable the touchpad when LID id closed (Enable back auto when its opened)) which will stop strange behavior from touchpad when using HDMI in some systems. Pointer acceleration enhancements (new plist options to control) Partial support for the extra buttons and track point from Synaptics trackpad Improved support for synaptics Updated documentation for features Several minor bug fixes and optimizations Version v4.5 Added new plist option to control touchpad edges dead zone Added plist option to change 2f and 3f tap default actions Added option to tweak pointing acceleration Added 4f pinch gesture and plist option (ELAN and Focaltech) Updated plist options to better organize Improved 2f dragging in clickpads Improved edge swipes Fixed synaptic touchpad sleep issue seen in some systems Fixed some keyboard bugs Several improvements, minor bug fixes and optimizations Version v4.4.5 : Improved support for Synaptics touchpads (Clickpad working fine now) Updated support for new ELAN touchpads Improved edge swipes Fixed a bug with Karabiner app to allow mapping Several bug fixes and optimizations Version v4.4 : Released (For Asus keyboard backlight auto off, use updated DSDT patch and v2.5 Fn keys kext) Improved support for Synaptics touchpad (Clickpad still have some issues so i need beta testers) Improved support for some new ELAN and Focaltech touchpads Improved pointer acceleration Reworked scrolling Improved Swipes, Zoom and Rotations Added more plist options to tweak the gestures and option to control delay after sleep Added GIGABYTE Fn key mode layout Added support for 10.6 (32bit build) Fixed several bugs in both keyboard and Touchpad Optimizations Version v4.3 : Added support for Synaptics touchpads (Firmware v7.5+) found in new laptops but still its experimental for others as it has not been tested on many laptops. (Tested only on Lenovo Z50-70 and G400) Added support for unsupported touchpads to work in enhanced mouse mode without multi touch Improved support for Focaltech and ELAN touchpad (especially ELAN v2) Improved pointing and scroll with new smoothing features and other improvements which can be controlled in plist Improvements and optimizations for all features Added plist option for keyboard to make Num Lock into clear instead of soft controlled num lock mode Added Fn keys mode layout for Lenovo Added support for ACPI brightness controls from EC calls (You have to use DSDT patch) Fixed many bugs For the complete change log of all the updates follow this thread: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1966-elan-touchpad-driver-issues/ FEATURES OF ELAN v4 HARDWARE, FOCALTECH and SYNAPTICS: (Supports up to five fingers touch) Mouse mode with Virtual Buttons Left, Right and Middle Tapping - Up to 5 fingers Clicking - Up to 5 fingers Dragging : Tap to release and Finger Lift ⃠Left Button Drag, Double Tap Drag, Single Tap Drag and Click Drag Corner Tapping Scrolling - Single finger Edge and Two Fingers swipe Continuous, Linear, Sling and Inertial scroll effects Finger Press - Up to 5 fingers Swiping - Edge, Three and Four Fingers Zoom - Two fingers pinch zoom, OSX Zoom with Keyboard 4 (Elan, Focaltech) & 5 fingers Pinch gesture Rotations - Arc and Swipe Rotations Accidental Input/Palm check when typing Fn Keys Mode Features Toggle Full customization FEATURES OF ELAN v2 and v3 HARDWARE: (Supports up to three fingers touch) Mouse mode with Buttons Left, Right and Virtual Middle Tapping - Up to 3 fingers Dragging - Tap to release and Finger Lift ⃠Left Button Drag, Double Tap Drag and Single Tap Drag Corner Tapping Scrolling - Edge Scroll and Two Fingers Continuous, Linear, Sling, Circular and Inertial scroll effects Finger Press - Up to 3 fingers Swiping - Edge and Three Fingers Zoom - Two fingers pinch zoom, OSX Zoom with Keyboard Rotations - Arc, Circular and Swipe Rotations Accidental Input/Palm check when typing Fn Keys Mode Features Toggle Full customization HOW TO INSTALL: Remove any existing "ApplePS2Controller, VoodooPS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, ApplePS2Keyboard and old Elan Touchpad" kexts if you have already installed from the HDD '/System/Library/Extensions ', '/Extra/Extensions', and '/System/Extensions/Library/myHack.kext/Contents/Plugins/' (if you used myHack USB installer for OSX). If you use USB installer to boot (used to install OSX), then you have to remove the above kexts from USB '/Extra/Extensions'. Install the Kexts (Recommended to use Kext utility for installing) inside the attached zip file using any kext installing methods (In clover, some systems may have problems with kext injection, so try to install them to System/Library/Extensions in that case). 
 ​ NOTE: From v3.3, there is only one kext as my driver in the attached zip file. For Support PM me or POST here . I may respond slowly sometimes due to busy life. NOTE: Please don't mirror my files at other places, let the people know about this thread for the latest version and support. NOTE: I've worked very hard on this driver (especially ELAN v2, 4 and Focaltech without hardware) and will try to continue support in future. I do the development everyday with some time dedicated to this and many other projects. But i need your support so i can get more time to spend on these projects for improvements. Also we maintain this website without ads for all of you and it costs a bit for us to host. IF POSSIBLE PLEASE MAKE A DONATION BY CLICKING BELOW PAYPAL DONATE BUTTON FOR ME Paypal: FOR WEBSITE DONATE HERE: http://www.osxlatitude.com/donate/ THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT I would like to thank following people for beta testing the driver and providing valuable feedback: Leon, Ramalxlama, Shin zon, Sherlocks, Dragon, Ðнтошка, Thomas benhamou,68x, Eli and many others. SOURCE: Project source code: https://github.com/E...Touchpad-Driver I am still doing some major work with beta testers to improve the features and stability, so I cannot update my git until its done, because it may allow others to modify and distribute their own version which can miss my changes and also worried about something else too which I do not want to mention here. I want to support this project for very long time and did spend hundreds of hours so far with testers (without hardware) and implemented many of the features myself from the scratch. So, I deserve and have rights to not to update my project source until I feel confident. The base of the Apple PS2 open sources I have used for my project are pretty much same which you find in the source from my above git link and rest of the changes from that are based on documentation and my own ideas. CREDITS: ELAN - Arjan Opmeer for ELAN linux documentation/source FocalTech - mgottschlag (github) for linux source Synaptics - Synaptics official documentation and linux source I would like to thank the VoodooPS2 team (Slice, King, rehabman and many others who contributed to the VoodooPS2) for ideas, Apple for their PS2 open sources which i've used as base for my driver and linux sources for the touchpad initialization and packet info.

    Virtualsmc.efi driver is only needed for filevault. for normal booting all you need is virtualsmc.kext in clover/kext/other folder. if you are not using fakesmc.kext.

    That's normal in Hackintosh for those brief seconds. Lilu.kext + Whatevergreen will remove some but not 100%. If you boot with verbose mode, you won't see it, so take your pick.

    No need to patch the kext or DSDT. Add Arbitrary under Devices in Config file. You just need to determine the PCIAddr by looking at the IOReg file under RPxx/PXSX, search for pcidebug. In this example it's RP01/PXSX@0, pcidebug = 01:00:00 You can also use dspci (app attached below) to find the address Change the PCIAddr accordingly If the card reader is not on this list, it might not be supported by this patch dspci.zip

    1) To fix boot issue, go to BIOS, enable Legacy Option ROMs 2) Best to install internal wifi - DW1560 is my recommendation 3) In Config file, under Boot, change Default Boot Volume to what you name your MacOS SSD (case sensitive I think). 4) Right click "install MacOS High Sierra.app" , select show package contents Go to Contents/SharedSupport, mount BaseSystem.dmg Go to /S/L/E, grab AppleHDA and replace it back to your running MacOS /S/L/E folder Repair permissions and rebuild cache

    You forgot to mention it has discrete graphics as well. Your system is not Kabylake, not sure why you have MBP 15,2 as SMBIOS. So you have no graphics acceleration.

    Broadwell is supported from Yosemite (forgot which version) up to the latest Mojave. You'll need to replace the Intel wireless card of course since it's not supported with a DW1560 or a USB device. Your system's specs: Inspiron 3558, supported devices: i3-5005U HD 5500 Synaptics touchpad ALC255 Webcam

    You probably didn't have the DVMT Pre-allocation patch. You need to add it to the properties section under Devices, can't use KexttoPatch for FB in Mojave on Skylake and above See here for more info https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/335018-intel-fb-patcher-v164/

    To save your time, here's my kext. Put in /S/L/E, rebuild permission/cache or put inside IO80211Family.kext, whatever works. Also I attached the injector kext, put it in Clover/kexts/Other Remove the two obsolete kexts you use as well. AirPortAtheros40.kext.zip Ar9285Injector.kext.zip

    It's required after any kext addition, removal or modification, whether in /S/L/E or in /L/E. To repair permissions, type the following Terminal commands: sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E* sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E* ` To rebuild kextcache and prelinked kernel, type the following Terminal command: sudo touch -f /S*/L*/E* sudo touch -f /L*/E* sudo kextcache -Boot -U / ` Sometimes, the system returns an error message about not being able to modify/rebuild the cache and/or the prelinked kernel. In this case, the existing cache and prelinked kernel can be deleted using the following Terminal commands: sudo rm -Rf /S*/L*/PrelinkedKernels sudo rm -Rf /S*/L*/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches The cache and prelinked kernel can then be rebuilt using the above touch and kextcache commands.

    Sierra Guide See here for install guide, just replace with Sierra bootpack. E7x70_Sierra.zip - See Update files below Known Issue & Workaround: HDMI-Output works but if connect HDMI-Cable the local Display goes off and never recovers. I had tried different configurations but none panned out. Here's a workaround: Close the LID until you see the HDMI display becomes the primary display, then open the LID. It'll switch LCD as primary and HDMI as secondary. NOTE: Workaround is only needed on clean boot, no issue if system has gone through a sleep/wake cycle Post Install: Enable Brightness Control and Trackstick Scrolling Trackstick Scrolling Download and install Smartscroll for trackstick scrolling Touchpad - 2 fingers scrolling, 2 finger tab for right click, tap and drag Brightness Control Download and Install Karabiner-Elements Launch Karabiner-Elements Copy karabiner.json to ~/.config/Karabiner karabiner.json.zip or copy the settings according to diagram below Now use F11 & F12 for Brightness, use F1, F2, & F3 for Volumes Control

    My E7440 has an SD card reader. With some relative minor patches, I was able to get the Apple AppleSDXC.kext driver to load and work. Here are the details. The SD card reader in my E7440 uses an O2 micro part. Here is the lspci output: 03:00.0 SD Host controller: O2 Micro, Inc. Unknown device 8520 (rev 01) The driver matches on IOName, which has a default value of pci14e4,16bc. This needs to change. First I patched the binary driver AppleSDXC with the following perl script. perl -pi -e 's|pci14e4,16bc|pci1217,8520|g' AppleSDXC Next you need to modify the following section of Info.plist from: <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>pci14e4,16bc</string> </array> to <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>pci1217,8520</string> <string>pci14e4,16bc</string> </array> I added the correct value for the O2 Micro part: pci1217,8520. You most like only need to replace the old line with the new one, but I added it. Lastly I modified the RP05.PXSX device to match the Apple device SDXC. My modified PXSX function now looks like this: Device (SDXC) { Name (_ADR, Zero) // _ADR: Address Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized) // _PRW: Power Resources for Wake { Return (GPRW (0x69, 0x04)) } Method (_RMV, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (0x00) } } I doubt this last step is necessary, but I like to match the Apple names when possible. After you make the changes, regenerate the cache and reboot. I have tried this change with 10.9.1, 10.9.2, 10.9.3 and 10.9.4 and they all work. I have not had a chance to try 10.9.5, but it should work. I will attach the modified files from 10.9.1 as a reference. Joe SDXC_10P9P1.tar.gz

    @Hervé I figured out, that the wireless receiver for my mouse is preventing the system from going to sleep. If I unplug it from the USB port the system is going to sleep correctly (hibernatemode=3) It even doesn't matter which hibernate mode I use (0 or 3 or 25). With the receiver attached the system won't go to sleep... @mtpiplod I have attached my clover folder for you. The "AirportBrcmFixup.kext" + "FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext" are only inside my kexts folder because I replaced the original Intel Wifi card with an DELL Wireless 1520 from an old Latitude E5510.

    Just wanted to share that I was successful on installing Mojave 10.14.2 on a Precision T1650. This system was shipped with an Intel i3-3220, I was not able to get the iGPU (HD2500) working correctly after installing macOS. I just got a flickering screen with a mouse cursor shown, the only way to get some screen output was booting with "-x". Therefore I decided to put my old Geforce GTX650Ti into the system to get at least some metal support. Now the. system is working perfectly. For everyone else, I attached my CLOVER folder. Feel free to use it for your own build. CLOVER_Precision_T1650.zip
