    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.

    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!

    @duypham312 Yes, that's the same behavior I have for my E7470, but only if you just boot up the system. If it had gone through a sleep cycle prior to inserting the external monitor, it'll work fine.

    There are existing bootpacks here You can follow my Catalina Clover guide here to create the installer After that, you can either install Clover or OC, both EFI are available in the 1st link Just replace the entire EFI folder. If you also have Windows, make sure to keep the Microsoft folder and add it into the EFI folder

    @duypham312 You can disable the top 3 patches from the Config file. From the Hackintool.app with the USB configuration in your diagram, press export. Copy the USBPorts.kext to kexts/Other, removing USBInjectall.kext Copy only SSDT-EC-USBX.aml to ACPI/Patched. You don't need SSDT-UIAC.aml If you want to use SSDT-UIAC.aml, then you keep USBInjectall.kext and leave out USBPorts.kext. Hope that's clear. I see Sinetek-rtsx.kext is loaded in the IOReg so it should be working. You might just need to eject and insert again several times, give it a few seconds to mount. For audio, you could try adding CodecCommander.kext to /Library/Extension, then repair permissions and rebuild cache. For shutdown after sleep, I'm not sure. I see you have a LiteOn SSD, there's some issue with LiteOn NVMe drive that requires patching but not Sata SSD.

    Seems right enough. USB port limit patches basically means that: it removes the limit of 15 x USB ports and extends it to something like 24 if I'm not mistaken. Check the comments further to the right since you probably copied this from an existing config. Usually, that patch is not required on a laptop so it probably is of no use on your E5470.
  19. 1 point
    you just need to eject and re insert it again to work. Yes, it's not perfect but at least it's semi supported now. With USBPorts.kext + EC.aml if available will replace USBInjectall.kext + disable the (2) 10.15.x port limit patches in the Config file under KextsToPatch.

    You can get the latest SDCard reader kext from here (version 2.2 is stable). Weird although you mentioned never able to locate the kext, yet in the IOReg file you posted, it shows it's already installed. It won't show under system information under Card Reader but it'll work once you insert an SD Card. For USB issue, download Hackintool.app and generate an USBPorts.kext + EC*.aml file. Not sure what your sleep issue is, you'll need to provide more details. Have you disable Hibernation? See here HDMI issue??? Please explain what's the issue. No HDMI video? no HDMI audio?

    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.

    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>

    Last update: 06 Jan 2020 Questions around this Broadcom BCM4350 chipset (in particular the Dell DW1820A) have resurfaced again so I digged into the matter since most people reported it did not work. Outside the model fitted to Apple MacBooks (subsystem id 106b:0131, rev. 05), Wikidevi lists a few cards cards for this chipset, including: Dell DW1820A (several models with different part numbers) Foxconn T77H649.00 (Lenovo part number 00JT494) Lite-on WCBN808B (Lenovo part number 00JT493) All those cards carry PCI id 14e4:43a3 and normally offer high speed 802.11ac wireless + Bluetooth 4.1 services. Broadcom BCM4350 chipset is supported since Yosemite 10.10 and its hardware id is listed in the Info.plist file of IO80211Family's PlugIn kext AirPortBrcm4360 up to macOS Sierra 10.12, then AirPortBrcmNIC since macOS High Sierra 10.13: <key>Broadcom 802.11 PCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AirPort_BrcmNIC</string> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IODefaultMatchCategory</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>pci14e4,43ba</string> <string>pci14e4,43a3</string> <string>pci14e4,43a0</string> </array> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>1241</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>TruePowerOff</key> <true/> </dict> - - - - - - - - - - Edit: 06 Jan 2020 Removed the warning about DW1820/BCM4350 cards following tests confirming that disabling ASPM does fix the stability issues previously encountered by most users.

    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:

    I don't have garbled screen with my patched A19 DSDT. I would get a garbled screen if I update to BIOS A12 or higher and run DSDT from an earlier BIOS version (could be from A11, could be from before). All I get with my patched A19 DSDT is a screen corruption at the point where desktop shuts down after initiating a restart or a shutdown. It does not bother me the slightest. I won't get that if I revert to BIOS A11. It only comes with BIOS versions starting at A12. Nevetherless, I tried the patches you posted and only the binary mod. of the Capri FB kext did the business: Find: 03006601 01020402 00000004 00000001 Replace: 03006601 01020402 00000004 00008000 Thanks for the info! 2nd DSDT patch alongside Latest Lilu + WEG changed nothing at all.

    Hi all, Just built my first budget desktop hackintosh and pleased to share the clover bootpack. Specification Gigabyte H81M DS2 4th Gen 3.5 GHz i3-4330 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz Memory Intel Graphics HD 4600 (Working but unusable. See notes below.) AMD Radeon 7750 1GB (See other post here : https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11048-amd-radeon-hd-7750-supported-by-mac-os-mojave-catalina/) Note: This bootpack should also be compatible with any supported 4th Gen Intel CPU on H81 Intel Chipset Motherboard. OpenCore Bootpack The OpenCore bootpack can be downloaded from the following link:- macOS Big Sur Beta 2 (20A4300b) (OpenCore 0.6.0):- OpenCore-11.0-Beta -20A4300b.zip macOS Big Sur Beta 1 (20A4299v) (OpenCore 0.6.0) :- OpenCore-11.0-Beta-20A4299v.zip Clover Bootpack The Clover bootpack can be downloaded from the following link:- Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4 (Clover v5116) :- CLOVER10.15.4.zip Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1 (Clover v5070) :- CLOVER-10.15.1.zip Mac OS Catalina 10.15 (Clover v5070) :- CLOVER-10.15.zip Mac OS Mojave 10.14.4 (Clover v4910) :- CLOVER-10.14.4.zip Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 / Mac OS High Sierra 10.13 (Clover v4241) :- CLOVER.zip Credits goes to Jake Lo, Bronx Teck & Herve Notes on Big Sur Beta 2 (20A4300b) (1) So far everything works except sleep. System freezes after wake. (2) This bootpack allow both updating of existing beta 1 to beta 2 and installing new hard drive by running the installer app from an existing Mac OS system. (3) USB installer created from createmediainstall still cannot be booted. Resolved. As @Jake Lo advise, with latest lilu we can omit "-lilubetaall vsmcgen=1 booter-fileset-kernel booter-fileset-basesystem" stuff. Make sure to reset nvram on first OC boot and boot the usb installer on reboot. However, looks like "booter-fileset-kernel & booter-fileset-basesystem" need to be remove when booting usb only and 1st stage installation. 2nd stage looks like it still need those to boot. Notes on Big Sur 11.0 Beta (20A4299v) (1) USB installer still cannot be booted using clover or opencore. Big Sur need to be cloned from existing real mac disk image. (2) So far everything works except for sleep. (3) Downloaded the real mac disk image and followed installation guide from here: https://www.olarila.com/topic/8977-guide-installrestore-bigsur-with-opencore/. (4) Initial bootpack for OpenCore obtained from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/fuf6z7/open_core_056_catalina_10154_gaz87mxd3h_i74770/. Updated network card kext from my clover bootpack and updated OpenCore to version 0.6.0. Notes on Catalina 10.15.4 (1) Updated Clover, Lilu.kext, VirtualSMC.kexts & Whatevergreen.kext to latest versions. Notes on Catalina 10.15.1 (1) Whatevergreen.kext updated to 1.3.4 to resolve blank screen after boot. General Notes on Mac OS Sierra 10.12 / Mac OS High Sierra 10.13 / Mojave 10.14 / Catalina 10.15 (1) So far, everything works including sleep with power nap! So far this motherboard is very compatible with Mac OS and patched DSDT / SSDT is not required. (2) Although the integrated HD4600 GPU can be enabled by simply injecting intel from clover, the GPU cannot be utilized since the motherboard does not have a HDMI output! Using dedicated GPU such as RX 560 while the integrated HD4600 GPU is enabled may cause video playback in chrome to be jibrish and iTunes video playback to freeze the desktop. The integrated GPU need to be disabled from bios to resolve this. Let me know if the clover bootpack works for you. Cheers!
