    I was contacted by member @plastikman about a potential universal fix for the troublesome DW1820a cards. Hugotai posted again at Voldemort's place early december 2019 about a property injection that apparently fixed the stability issues encountered with so many DW1820a on so many laptops. Said property is pci-aspm-default and the value to inject is 0. Hugotai gave no explanation or description whatsoever so I cannot say whether the solution comes from him directly or not. A quick search on the Net revealed to me that ASPM means Active-State Power Management and relates to PCIe devices. Basically it's a protocol that offers dynamic power management through different possible states ranging from idle to powersave or performance. I also understand there is a default state which usually means power is controlled by BIOS, not the OS/kernel. This is totally unknown territory until I read more about it but setting ASPM default state to 0 probably means ASPM is disabled. On reading a little further, I came across writings that mentioned potential conflicts between idle timers or that ASPM compliance varied by device. So, the troubles experienced by so many people may indeed come from that. Anyway, I tried the property injection posted by Hugotai on the other 2 x DW1820a/BCM4350 cards I still possess and that did not properly work in my Latitude 7490: the 096JNT model (subsystem 1028:0021) and the T77H649 (subsystem 17aa:075a). Results were as follows: 096JNT: Without injection of ASPM property CPU load up to the roof after a few minutes, system freeze as expected and experienced before. IOReg reveals pci-aspm-default parameter natively set to 0x102 under the wireless card's ACPI device. With injection of ASPM defaut set to 0 All Ok, was able to use the laptop without any issue, performance degradation of wifi problems for well over 1hr. IOReg confirms pci-aspm-default parameter set to 0 under the wireless card's ACPI device. T77H649: Without injection of ASPM property CPU load up to the roof after a few minutes, system freeze as expected and experienced before. IOReg reveals pci-aspm-default parameter natively set to 0x102 under the wireless card's ACPI device. With injection of ASPM defaut set to 0 All Ok, was able to use the laptop without any issue, performance degradation of wifi problems for well over 1hr. IOReg confirms pci-aspm-default parameter set to 0 under the wireless card's ACPI device. I remind everyone that all I use is the Clover property injection detailed in post #2, in order to declare compatibility with Broadcom chips 14e4:4331 or 14e4:4353; no AirportBrcmFixup plugin kext, no bcrmfx-driver boot argument and no pin masking. So, it would seem we now have a definitive solution for DW1820A/BCM4350-based cards. I've updated the above posts to reflect on the good news. All credits to Hugotai and/or whoever identified this as a fix.

    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.

    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>

    Hey, Max. I Found a good solution to fix the slash/? key on pt_bt layouts of lenovo thinkpad. Background information: Followin the apple tn2450 table i found the key code 0x87 https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/technotes/tn2450/_index.html Now, i follow the apple usb 2 adb table and fount 5e correspondent adb code to 0x87 from hid_adb_2_usb_keymap https://opensource.apple.com/source/IOHIDFamily/IOHIDFamily-606.1.7/IOHIDFamily/Cosmo_USB2ADB.c to check keyboard events, use ioio -s ApplePS2Keyboard LogScanCodes 1 it to trigger the logging of the adb codes and look at console filtering by "ApplePS2Keyboard" Finally, the simplified solution: Add a custom map in VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist The remap: e01d=5e Using PlistBuddy (i have a automated script to build my efi folder) plist=VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist node=':IOKitPersonalities:ApplePS2Keyboard:Platform\ Profile:Default:Custom\ ADB\ Map' /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Add ${node}:1 string 'e01d=5e'" $plist manually: open VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist find IOKitPersonalities -> ApplePS2Keyboard -> Platform Profile -> Default -> Custom ADB Map and add a line <string>e01d=5e</string> results like: <key>Default</key> <dict> <key>Breakless PS2</key> <array> <string>;Items must be strings in the form of breaklessscan (in hex)</string> </array> <key>Custom ADB Map</key> <array> <string>;Items must be strings in the form of scanfrom=adbto (in hex)</string> <string>e01d=5e</string> </array> <key>Custom PS2 Map</key> <array>

    Hi all, have been playing around with the driver to see if I can get firmware upload in Mojave to work on my dw1820a without needing windows to upload the firmware. It seems to be working ok , but am still testing to see if it works consistently. Attaching the kexts if anyone else would like to try with their dw1820a. These need to be uploaded to /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other. Make sure you don't have any equivalent kexts in /L/E or /S/L/E. Let me know if you have any success.

    Last update: 28 Jan 2020 Dell DW1820A: Ok Ok Ok DW1820A is a pretty good combo card providing 2.4/5GHz 802.11ac wireless at 867Mbps + Bluetooth 4.1. As stated at Wikidevi, there appears to be a few different models of the card. Whilst they all carry the same Broadcom id 14e4:43a3, they each carry a different subsystem id/part #: 1028:0021 (part # CN-0VW3T3) -> 100% Ok with ASPM disabled (originally tested 100% Ok on my Latitude 7490 without ASPM tuning) 1028:0021 (part # CN-096JNT) -> 100% Ok with APSM disabled 1028:0022 (part # CN-096JNT) -> 100% Ok with APSM disabled 1028:0023 (part # CN-0VW3T3) -> 100% Ok with APSM disabled 1028:0023 (part # CN-08PKF4) -> 100% Ok with APSM disabled I acquired a Dell DW1820A a few months ago and was able to play with that card on a Latitude 7490 laptop (fitted with an M.2 2230 Key A+E WLAN slot) that I targeted for Mojave. The model I received was CN-0VW3T3. Before it was later established that not all DW1820A were equal, I purchased a 2nd one and, as it turned out to be, was lucky to receive another 0VW3T3 model. /!\ 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. 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. This was because I had not applied any particular tuning for the card and, of course, this was resolved once I implemented the necessary fix detailed below. /!\ 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. Further reading and experimenting showed me that AirPortBrcmNIC kext was the root cause of the problem. Building on Hugotai's success, I seeked to work out an easier solution to bypassing AirPortBrcmNIC kext 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). Eg: [email protected],yy->[email protected] in the absence of individual ACPI device entry under the PCI bridge for the card, select "FixAirport" ACPI Fix in Clover. That'll create a device "ARPT" @0 under the bridge and that's what you'll inject properties to. This may also require to select "AddDTGP" ACPI Clover fix if your DSDT does not possess any DTGP method. Use Clover Configurator app to that effect. inject the following properties either in DSDT or through Clover (latter recommended): compatibility of the card with Broadcom chips 14e4:4353 or 14e4:4331 that are handled by IO80211Family's PlugIn kext AirPortBrcm4360 ASPM disabling (required for most cards to avoid CPU clogging and system freeze) optionally, add SysProfiler's cosmetic info such as PCIe Slot, card's make and model, etc. and that's it ! Nothing to do to IO80211Family kext or 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 absolutely requires to be changed, say for full 5GHz/80MHz operations, 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 (v1.1.9 at time of writing) with country code other than default's US setting of the card impacted my wireless performance (fluctuating and reduced RX/TX rate). For instance, with country code set to FR (for France), I would not connect at 80MHz on my 5GHz Wireless network, only to 40MHz which resulted in a local wireless connection limited to 400Mbps (vs. 867Mbps) and reduced my overall Internet RX rate by about 60% and TX rate by about 10%: with country code set to #a (to get full 80MHz connection), I could not obtain DFS channel mode to my local router and I noticed fluctuating/unstable RX/TX rates: without AirportBrmfixup, my wireless connection runs solid at 867Mbps and SpeedTest returns a solid TX and RX rates at 300Mbps (i.e. the maximum speed of my Internet connection). Properties injection through DSDT: 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 () { "pci14e4,4353" // Declares compatibility with BCM43224; "pci14e4:4331" for BCM94331 may also be used }, "pci-aspm-default", // Mandatory for most cards Buffer (One) { 0x00 // Disables ASPM for PCIe device } }) } } } Properties injection through Clover config: 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 [email protected]>[email protected],2->[email protected] 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 = pci-aspm-default | Value = 0 | Type = NUMBER 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. Results: On the Bluetooth side, once the usual Rehabman's Broadcom firmware patching kexts are installed (BrcmFirmwareRepo + BrcmPatchRAM2), the BT4.1 module will be fully operational and capable of supporting AirDrop and Handoff!

    Better later than never... As explained in past system/model-specific threads, there are further patches that may be used to modify the framebuffer memory size (useful on Latitude E6x30) and the VRAM allocation (nice to increase). Those parameters are defined in the 2nd line of the sample Capri layouts we've illustrated throughout this thread (bearing in mind the reversed byte order of kexts' binary code). For instance: LoRes mobile layout 0x01660003: 03006601 01020402 00000004 00000001 00000060 10070000 HiRes mobile layout 0x01660004: 04006601 01030101 00000002 00000001 00000060 10070000 Desktop layout 0x0166000a: 0A006601 00020302 00000002 00000001 00000060 10070000 Desktop layout 0x0166000b: 0B006601 00020302 00000002 00000001 00000060 10070000 1) Framebuffer memory size: This is defined in the 4th 32bit parameter of the layouts. Default value is 0x01000000 (reversed code 00000001), i.e. 16777216 in decimal which, when divided by 1024*1024 (=1MBytes), equates to 16MB. Some laptops such as the Dell Latitude E6x30 models suffer from corrupt/garbled display on screen unless this value is reduced to 8MB, i.e. 0x00800000. The patch required to change this is: Find: xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx 00000001 xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx Replace xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx 00008000 xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx For instance, to reduce the FB mem. size of layout 0x01660003 to 8MB, use this patch: \/\/ Find: 03006601010204020000000400000001 Replace: 03006601010204020000000400008000 /\/\ 2) VRAM allocation: This is defined in the 5th 32bit parameter of the layouts. In most recent versions of OS X/macOS, the default value usually is 0x60000000 (reversed code 00000060), i.e. 1610612736 in decimal which, when divided by 1024*1024 (=1MBytes), equates to 1536MB (i.e. 1.5GB). This is shared memory and systems with, say, 8GB of RAM, may want to increase this. The patch required to do this is: Find: xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx 00000060 xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx Replace xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx 000000YY xxxxxxxx [...] xxxxxxxx -> where YY = desired VRAM Qty Reminder: 256MB = 1000 0000 in hex 384MB = 1800 0000 in hex 512MB = 2000 0000 in hex 768MB = 3000 0000 in hex 1024MB = 4000 0000 in hex 1536MB = 6000 0000 in hex 1792MB = 7000 0000 in hex 2048MB = 8000 0000 in hex For instance, to increase VRAM allocation of layout 0x01660003 to 2048MB (i.e. 2GB), use this patch: \/ Find: 0300660101020402000000040000000100000060 Replace: 0300660101020402000000040000000100000080 /\ Naturally, those framebuffer modifications can be combined in a single patch. For instance, to reduce FB mem. size to 8MB and increase VRAM to 2GB, layout 0x01660003 is patched as follows: \/\/ \/ Find: 030066010102040200000004000000010000006010070000 Replace: 030066010102040200000004000080000000008010070000 /\/\ /\

    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.

    As @arsradu suggested, just update to latest Clover and update the kexts to the latest. If you have 3rd party kexts in /L/E make sure to update those as well, repair permission and rebuild cache. See if it still boots. If no issue, then continue upgrading. For sure you'll need a minimum of Clover v5107 to boot 10.15.4. I would recommend just upgrading to the latest v5118 at the time of writing this.

    Just to be sure, you're following the Catalina guide for Catalina, right? Because your initial link pointed to the Mojave guide. Would I be right to assume that you're installing Catalina 10.15.4? I might need to revisit Catalina's installation guide given that there were many issues with the 10.15.4 update. Will try a fresh 10.15.4's installation on the 7490 to see...

    A few of us with old C2D/C2Q platforms (mostly desktop) experienced CMOS reset since updating to 10.15.4. During troubleshooting, the issue was pinpointed to 10.15.4's new boot.efi file (located in /S/L/CoreServices) which, as many of us noticed, was displaying some new info when booting in verbose mode. Initially, replacing 10.15.4's boot.efi file with that of an earlier Catalina release or even an earlier macOS version was found to get rid of the problem without adverse affect on booting Catalina 10.15.4. However, this only worked for Hackintosh systems running Clover, not for systems running OpenCore. 10.15.3_boot.efi.zip File ownership needs to be re-adjusted to root:wheel upon replacement: sudo chown 0:0 /S*/L*/CoreServices/boot.efi Update: 15 April 2020 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Following further troubleshooting with vit9696, telepati and a few others, vit9696 worked out a temporary workaround for OpenCore in the form of a 5-bytes NVRAM variable wake-failure set to 00 00 00 00 00. All details and explanations are available here. For Clover users, this workaround alternative to replacing boot.efi can implemented as follows in Terminal: sudo nvram wake-failure=%00%00%00%00%00 Of course, this needs NVRAM to be working properly on the target Hack. For Hacks with no natively-supported NVRAM, it is required to install EMUVariableUEFI.efi Clover module + RC scripts on the Catalina boot volume. Once the variable is set and the system rebooted to take it into account, no more CMOS reset on rebooting from 10.15.4.

    I probably should add a note in the guide regarding Alps v7/8 support. Currently there is NO Alps kext that would run smoothly on E7270/ E7470, that's why I have ApplePS2Controller.kext in my bootpacks for models with Alps touchpad above v5. Although it doesn't detect it in Trackpad preferences it'll work perfectly smooth. 2 fingers scrolling works(only up and down, not sideway), 2 fingers right click, drag and drop. There is a slight issue with CAPS lock, you'll need to tab twice to lock and twice to unlock. As for VoodooPS2ControllerR6Bronxteck.kext, although it fixes the CAPS lock issue, I find it harder to use. It's not as smooth, perhaps I could adjust the ZFinger value for better support but I have not bother to since it disables the Trackstick on the E7470 and E7450 which I prefer over Trackpad. With the additional 3rd party software like SmartScroll.app, I was able to scroll smoothly up and down, side to side with ApplePS2Controller.kext. I guess it's up to your preference since E7270 does not have the Trackstick.

    Last update: 22 Mar 2020 EDP being in semi-permanent revamp, here are full packs for the Latitude D620/D630 series. The packs do not require any subsequent EDP tuning at all, they provide everything required to obtain a fully working system (CPU power management, graphics, LAN, audio, keyboard, trackpad), non-OOB wireless, bluetooth and any other devices excluded of course. However, some manual tuning for proper Sleep/Wake operation is required: setting hibernation mode to plain old sleep and deleting any eventual sleep image file. This is done through the following Terminal commands upon final OS X installation: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 sudo pmset -a hibernatefile /dev/null sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage Vanilla support stops at Lion 10.7.5 for all Intel GMA based models and the D620 nVidia due to GPU support limitations. For those systems, ML may be installed and tuned back to 32bit operation through MLPF hack. Look at the Dell installation guides forum subsection for MLPF'ed ML guides and packs. It's not 100% bug-free though... Only the D630 nVidia supports vanilla installation of Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra and High Sierra (Sierra & HiSie only with Penryn CPUs). For all models, read the Performance tuning thread for CPU + GPU tuning if required but the FakeSMC kext included in the packs below brings it all.

Use myHack v3.3.1, except for SL which requires v3.1.2 (there's a bug related to SL in v3.3.1). For Yosemite and beyond, we recommend manual USB installer creation using instructions that have been detailed in numerous guides posted here. NB: For Chameleon-based Yosemite installations (i.e. no Clover or otherwise), not all kexts load from /E/E. Eg: VoodooHDA + HDADisabler or lspcidrv. In such cases, copy the kexts to /L/E, repair permissions and rebuild the cache with the following Terminal commands: sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R 0:0 /Library/Extensions sudo touch /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -Boot -U / Update to Chameleon r2468 is recommended for proper hardware support such as good CPU detection. Chameleon-2.3svn-r2468.pkg.zip NB: For Enoch-based Yos/EC/Sierra installations (recent Enoch versions such as r2795 and beyond for instance), you may use a kernel.plist file in /Extra with parameter KernelBooter_kexts set to Yes to load kexts from /E/E directly. Those kexts will not natively be considered for prelinked kernel/kext cache generation so boot time will be a little slower. To maximise boot time, you can either move kexts from /E/E to /L/E or copy them from /E/E to /L/E and set KernelBooter_kexts to No. You will then repair permissions and rebuild the cache as detailed above. macOS Sierra and later can only be installed on D630 nVidia models fitted with a Penryn FSB800 C2D CPU (e.g.: T6xxx, T8xxx, T9xxx).

    Hi there, X-mas comes early this year - so from all of us - to all of you - we have now upgraded the internet backbone of OSXL from 100/100mbit to 250/250mbit. Early tests shows that the page loads faster and downloads is blazing fast. Merry x-mas everyone Leon

    Fn+B will work. For F11 and F12 to work, you need to install VoodooPS2Controller.kext but it's not very functional for this model

    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:

    Processor i5-xxxx @2.3GHz 16GB RAM Intel HD5500 graphics had to change some acpi information to get the installer to boot due to usb issues. installed 5070 clover for the USB and changed (change ECDV to EC) for the double check to boot the installer (took 5 min to boot) after the OS finished I reinstalled all of my previous kext including the new Brcm kext and got every major part working including HDMI Audio. I include my clover installer EFI and my Boot Drive EFI to download CLOVER.zip the only 2 things that bothers me is drm videos in safari and now the new Apple TV app and all the function keys aren't set right and I have no clue how to set them. does anyone know any fixes for this?

    30-06-2019 Update Attached Files in First Post ( Google Drive Link 50 MB ) This instructions is for Dell Precision m6800 (and similar Dell Precision Models - Experimental) Before you start Please note that : I am using Dell Precision m6800 with these SPEC : Intel I7 4900MQ 2.8 Mhz - Intel HD Haswell 4600 32 GB RAM Nvidia Quadro K3100M 4GB Samsung EVO 250 GB Dell DW 1560 WiFi and BT Adapter BIOS A25 ( Latest 30 Oct 2018 ) This Process has been successfully tested with High Sierra and Mojave 10.14.5 Both IGPU and DGPU are Working Together Correctly like a Desktop No Bios reset issue when reboot , Works with Dual Boot ( Win + OSX ) ******* Step By Step ******** 1- Reset BIOS to its default and Update it to A25 2- Modify BIOS setting ( Press F12 to see Options ) * Advanced Boot Options = Enable Legacy * Integrated NIC = Enable * Parallel Ports = AT * Serial Ports = Disabled ( If you are using Dock station then Enable it - Expermental ) * Sata Operation = AHCI * Drivers = Check all * Switchable Graphics = Enable Switchable Graphics * Secure Boot = Disabled * Virtualization = Disable 3- Create your OSX Installation USB ( Search How , its not my Topic ) * Then I recommend to install Clover bootloader to create EFI Folder on your USB (UEFI Method) 4- Once you create OSX Installation USB ; mount USB EFI PARTITION and DELETE EFI Folder 5- Decompress my attached files 6- On my attched files ; Find ( install Folder ) Copy EFI Folder and Paste it in your USB EFI PARTITION ( instead of deleted one in step 4) 7- Now you are ready to Install OSX for Dell Precision M6800 * Power On your PC * Press F12 to see Options * Select BOOT from ( your USB ) * Start Installation Process ( it will reboot several time during installation so press F12 each time to boot from your USB ) - search Youtube videos to see the installation process 8- Once installation done and you reach your OSX desktop *Copy my attached files to your Desktop and Eject USB * Mount your OSX Drive EFI PARTITION and delete ( EFI Folder if existed ) * On my attached files Find ( Boot Disk EFI ); copy EFI Folder and Paste it in your Drive EFI PARTITION instead of deleted one "same as step 6" 9- Now the last step ( very Important ) - on my attached files Find (L/E Folder) - use any method or tool to install ALL KEXTS to Library/Extensions - Rebuild kextcache and repair permissions - I recommend using Hackintool by @headkaze to install kexts and rebuild kextcache 10- Reboot your PC and check everything is working correctly ( Audio , Bluetooth , WiFi , Internet , USB 3 , Trim ... ) IF you are using Mojave ; No Cuda drivers available till now but Nvidia GPU works with 4k External Monitor via DP Fully Accelerated Qi-Ci , also you can Disable Bios graphics Optimus to disable Intel HD GPU and use only Nvidia GPU - The same thing with High Sierra except that Nvidia Web Drivers are available and Cuda are ready - I use this PC all time with 4k external monitor while laptop led screen is closen using external mouse and Keyboard for Graphic design and video editing; H264 with hardware acceleration is working but no H265 hardware acceleration I think due to Haswell limitation - also I've found useful app to disable CPU turbo boost . I use it sometimes to reduce CPU temp ( search google ) Note : in case you have booting troubles ; Try to change SMBIOS in config.plist to diffrent model as MacbookPro 10.1, MacBookPro 11.2, MacBookPro 13.1 also you can try iMac 14.2 ( works nicely with me I don't know why ) Little Tweak for CPU and RAM : go to CPU section in config.plist using clover configurator and add values to this sections according to your CPU frequency (Be careful) For example: - Add 2800 to "frequency mhz" if your CPU base is 2.8 mhz ( 2700 if 2.7 and 2100 if 2.1 , ...) - Add 99790 to "Bus speed khz" - Add 47 to "TDP" ( Look intel CPU spec page for your model to know more info about your CPU and TDP value for your CPU ) For example in my case https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/75131/intel-core-i7-4900mq-processor-8m-cache-up-to-3-80-ghz.html GPU Power Management: Delete my dAGPM.kext from clover/Kexts/Others and make your own Kext according to your SMBios ID to get the correct power management There is a tool developed by @pavo to generate your Kext and another method by @toleda search forum and google to know more about that Disable Nvidia GPU: If you want to disable dGPU and use only Intel HD 4600 drop SSDT-4600.aml to clover/ACPI/Patched . But in this case no external monitor will be working only internal Disable Intel HD GPU : If you like to use only Nvidia GPU so disable Optimus Graphics in Bios and you can use internal and external monitor USB 3 Ports Fixes : Please Modify The Info.Plist inside USBPorts.Kext to Match Your SMBIOS Find and change this text (iMac 14.2) change to (Your Model) every where in plist For Example (iMac 14.2) To (MacBookPro 11.2) Now All Your USB 3 Ports And Camera Will Work Correctly Have Fun Franckenstien 30 Jun 2019 SSDT-4600.aml.zip

    Nawcom's sort of disappeared from the Hackintosh scene but tribute can still be paid to him and his great tools. It sure is dated today but it did the business back in the days and greatly so. These may still be useful for those novices who want to setup a Hackintosh on a platform capable to run Snow Leopard but have no access to a Mac or an existing Hack. Snow Leopard remains the Mac OS X version from which many platforms can upgrade to subsequent OS X/macOS versions as long as their profile (SMBIOS) meets the requirements. Provided one has the Snow Leopard retail DVD or a USB key with retail SL restored to it, Nawcom's modCD or modUSB can be very useful to setup a temporary basic SL installation to work from. It does not have to be fully tuned up... Nawcom's tools are hard to find on the Net today, so here are copies it. I hope (and think) Nawcom's would not mind... OSX86_ModCD-032311-151021.zip -> rename from .zip to .iso and burn the image to a CD/DVD (can be done from Windows or Linux) OSX86_ModUSB.pkg.zip -> unzip this Mac app and run from OS X to create a bootable USB installer (cannot be used in Windows/Linux)

    Hi guys, @Ahmed Essam The difference between your specs and mine is only the processor. My laptop uses Intel i7. @taras_hetman My EFI folder => https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JnItAK8Fx0nSv70_9nCWFKALD9Z_qS8E I've successfully updated to the latest mojave (10.14.2). Cheers! Rafael Siqueira

    If you had been patching your own DSDT recently, you most likely encountered this common error dialogue when clicking on the 1st 2 errors, they'll take you to these set of codes To fix the errors, I created this patch which you can just apply with latest version of MacIASL This will fix all 3 errors listed above. Enjoy!
