  1. many Thanks Leook, Replacing both those kexts and rebuilding the cache seems to have resolved the issue . Already had the latest AppleALC.kext but did not think of replacing lilu.kext.. but replaced both anyway.
  2. well everything works fine after upgrading to latest Mojave on my Dell E7440 except headphone jack is not outputting anything. (to be honest it probably didn't before the upgrade either.. It was working fine under High Sierra. (been over a year since i used it before upgrading to Mojave late last year due to personal health issues <CANCER> i was forced to take 2018 of University studies so had no real need to use the hackbook. No i am back at University and wanting to use my external speakers via the headphone jack and i get no sound at all. In the sound settings it switches to Headphones but no audio. Bluetooth Audio functions fine (i can and have been using that with my powerbeats headphones.Internal speakers also working fine. any assistance as to what could be the cause of the issue appreciated. I did have an older codeccommander.kext duplicate in my SLE folder but i have removed that and rebuilt caches. I have codeccommander.kext and AppleALC.kext in my LE folder. so i am not sure why the headphone jack is not working :(.. Someone wiser than I may be able to sort it out.. most likely a simple setting. Attached clover config.plist and my DSDT.aml. If you need anything else let me know.. Any help muchly appreciated. config.plist.zip DSDT.aml.zip
  3. laptop is purely MacOS no windows installed at all.. (although i have though of using a 120GB mSATA with windows on it as a dual boot option under clover but i have not explored that option to date.
  4. currently AppleHDA_ALC292.kext is installed to /S/L/E but i have also tried it in /L/E (not in both at same time naturally)
  5. I believe it is being patched on the fly in clover config.plist I am tempted actually to reformat and reinstall everything fresh (only way to get rid of APFS)
  6. files uploaded DSDT.aml config.plist AppleHDA_ALC292.kext.zip
  7. Well opted to do an update using a full installer USB as the app store updates never work (unable to find install files after it reboots). that all went well (except i forgot to manually disable the APFS feature and it converted my SSD to APFS which now throws up errors before loading clover, but then loads up ok if a little slow). Upgraded clover to v4438. Everything is working but audio. I have re-installed the AppleHDA_ALC292.kext Installed latest Lilu.kext Installed latest CodecCommander.kext Repaired permissions and rebuilt caches as per standard -- no errors were reported Still can not get Audio working. No audio hardware found.. No changes to clover config.plist from 10.13.3 checking system info it shows the AppleHDA_ALC292.kext is loaded but the newer AppleHDA.kext (vanilla 10.13.4) has not loaded.. What am i missing here... ??
  8. Hi Bronxteck, I can confirm that all requirements are met. the DW1550 supports Bluetooth 4.0 LE. the OS believes Auto Unlock is supported it offers the Unlock this Mac with Apple watch option in privacy.. but when clicking on it it will not find the apple watch.. (it actually shows both mine and the wife's apple watches (as all apple devices are under my iCloud account) ) since there is a lack of information on the various hackintosh forums (some have got it working by using a wi-fi card from an actual mac) there is also a large amount of people who have been unable to get it working with genuine apple hardware, so may just be a gimicky thing that does not work 100% right even with genuine Macs. Sure would be nice though.
  9. Searched high and low on this forum and google in general and there is not much information out there. Anyway my E7440 High Sierra 10.13.2 does not want to communicate with my new Apple Watch (wifey bought them today) Wi-Fi / Bluetooth combo is the DW1550 1/2 PCIe card. everything else seems to be working.. Handoff/airdrop.. Maybe the 1550 is not compatible with Apple Watch ???
  10. SPOT ON... that fixed it.. Cool .. now to prep for 10.13.2
  11. E7440 Wi-Fi Card: DW 1550 (BCM94352HMB) MacOS : 10.12.6 In preparation to update from 10.12.6 to High Sierr 10.13.2 I updated my Clover version from 3994 to latest 4359. Now my wi-fi card does not work (No hardware Detected) Obviously I will not be updating to 10.13.2 until i can get this issue fixed. my clover config.plist is unchanged from 3650. so i do not know why it is no longer working. as an aside, i have installed the Lilu.kext and the airportbrcmfixup.kext to S/L/E and rebuilt cache in an attempt to fix the issue and still no go I checked the extensions in about this Mac and they are indeed loaded. I have also installed the latest fakepciid.kext and the fakepciid_broadcom_wifi.kext to S/L/E (the later is not being loaded). unsure of what to do next. I have attached a copy of my config.plist herewith for inspection.. Any help muchly appreciated. config.plist.zip
  12. Cool.. been holding off updating untill Uni finishes in a few weeks. Nice to know update went ok. Did you have to replace any kexts (ie Audio) after the update or did everything work straight off the bat ?
  13. I am using the Dw1550 card which is similar. See my post here https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9585-e7440-probs-with-clover-3994-and-sierra-10123/page-2 post #19. add in that code just after the fcvo patch under KextsToPatch in your clover config.plist. It should not be needed with the latest versions of the FakePCIID.kext and BRCM kexts, but I found that the FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext was not being loaded for some reason. those kext patches solved my wifi issue even though the FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext was not being loaded. i'll give 10-1 odds that if you check your system information that the fakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext is not being loaded.
  14. Yes i am.. But as i said FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext is not being loaded for some reason.
  15. FIXED WI-FI YES!!!! added the below code to Clover config.plist KextsToPatch and Wi-fi is working and it even connects to my 5G Access point so looks like i am back in business again Interestingly the FakePCIID_Broadcom_WIFI.kext is still not being loaded. but so long as Wi_Fi is working again all is good. credit: Neo.aka.Darkman/Post #15/http://www.insanelym...0121/?p=2281834 <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360 - PCI Error 1</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> QTnEdRs= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> QTnEZpA= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360 - PCI Error 2</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> QQ+3zTnBdQw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> QQ+3zTnBZpA= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360 - PCI Error 3</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> g33EBHQG </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> g33EBGaQ </data> </dict>
  16. Unfortunately that still failed to activate wi-fi.. Track preferences are working (downloaded the build called Jake lo 2.zip).. not all gestures work but i am guessing that that is more or less to do with limitations of the trackpad hardware. 1 finger and 2 finger clicking is working. 2 finger scrolling is working but that is it.. edge scrolling does not work ( i found it annoying anyway so i am not overly concerned) so only puzzle no to solve is wi-fi. Further investigation shows that the AppleAirPort4360.kext was not loading. So forced that to load under clover.config. however FakePCIID_Broadcom_WIFI.kext is not loaded either (probably why AppleAirport4360.kext did not load. Bluetooth is working. But i get a greayed out Wi-Fi symble in task bar say no Wi-Fi hardware installed. Looks like i am chasing something else. Maybe a DSDT edit somewhere (but all was fine with El Cap 10.11.6 and that was using same DSDT. and i can boot 10.11.6 from external drive with curent Clover config and Wi-Fi is working. so a real mystery.. I am at a loss..
  17. Well i solved the KP problem by relocating the 2 BRCM kexts to S/L/E from L/E and rebuilding the cache.. I am guessing they are looking for dependent kexts in the S/L/E folder (or same folder in which the BRCM kexts reside). Still no wi-fi system tells me the kexts have loaded so not sure. Applied your config.plist still no help. Audio also seems intermittent.. every now and then after a reboot i have no audio, rebooting again often brings it back... its a little annoying but i remember having this issue with El Cap in the beginning too.. can't for the life of me remember what i did to resolve it. Trackpad Preferences in settings brings up a blank page???
  18. ok installed those updated kexts to L/E and removed the old ones from S/L/E rebuilt the cash. and rebooted and now getting a KP Kernel Extensions in backtrace: com.apple.driver.AirPort.Brcm4360(1130.3.1a5)[0B58D249-D524-3A17-95E3-93D6E97AEBC3]@0xffffff7f81b57000->0xffffff7f82317fff dependency: com.apple.driver.corecapture(1.0.4)[48A77E3A-3C66-39EE-9285-F116DF59470C]@0xffffff7f81a2d000 dependency: com.apple.driver.mDNSOffloadUserClient(1.0.1b8)[DFE569DA-088F-3773-95A7-1C98F4E80CEF]@0xffffff7f81a5f000 dependency: com.apple.iokit.IO80211Family(1200.12.2)[A08E69B1-9559-358F-A363-9083B344DA10]@0xffffff7f81a67000 dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.9)[57960DC6-4099-31BC-9B47-52CD647779C7]@0xffffff7f80cb9000 dependency: com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily(3.2)[6326DB88-5330-3F0C-91F6-D478AB5E7503]@0xffffff7f80d06000 it eventually did boot after about 4 KP's but still no wi-fi sound is working again though (have not tried HDMI yet but one step at a time.. need to resolve the Wi-Fi issue
  19. yup saw the wireless patch in there cheers.. ok with the voodooPS2kext of drHurts i got keyboard and track pad working again.. (where do i stick the trackpad settings app??) Also audio and wi-fi/bluetooth still non functional
  20. Thanks Jake.. I just opened my original config.plist and your modified plist in Xcode and looks like the only thing required was disabling one of the on the fly ALC 292 patches ??? will volume keys work with these changes or is that still an unresolved Sierra issue? Ok i made the same Modifications
  21. Yeah i remember patching the kexts and or clover plist. I am guessing it was the clover plist i patched and lost the modifications when i upgraded to the newer clover version ... Heres my clover.plist Jake.. Please advise what changes you make for my future reference. config.plist.zip
  22. Broadcom 1550 ??? the one that does both the WI-FI and Bluetooth. Please point me in the right direction.. I found a post speaking about new on-the-fly patches for the audio but do not understand where to make these modifications.
  23. Yeah was looking through the Dell E-series forums exclusively should have expanded my search criteria. I'll give DrHurts builds a try.. (mind you will have to boot into El Cap from the external USB drive to grab the files.. As no wireless networking is available under Sierra ) What about Audio and wi-fi/Bluetooth ??
  24. Well i decided to upgrade my working 10.11.6 installation and have encountered some snags. After finally getting a working USB installer happening, I have still not resolved the issues, I think part of the issue is to do with Clover 3994. After i installed this in (with 10.11.6) i lost Audio but everything else worked, I created a Carbon Clone of the system on an external 1TB USB drive + a time machine backup for good measure. Then proceeded to download the latest Sierra from App store and do an in situ upgrade.. and BOOM KP every boot.. VoodooPS2Controller kext was causing the KP. So i booted the system from the El Cap Carbon Copy on the 1 TB drive (which worked a treat mind you) and browsed to the internal SSD L/E folder and removed the voodoops2controller.kext Rebuild the caches in the usual way and sierra completed installation. Naturally without keyboard and trackpad due to no PS2 controller. After logging back in to the system i had the following issues. No Keyboard trackpad (due to no PS2 controller installed) No Audio (does not seem to be detecting hardware). No Wi-FI or Bluetooth (again not detecting the Broadcom wi-fi card. Funilly it is loading the kexts) I have been scouring these forums for the past 3 days to find little resolution of these issues. The PS2 controller issue seems to be common enough and mentioned often.. But no real solution ??? However little mention of Audio and wi-fi/Bluetooth issues. Any assistance rendered would be appreciated.
