    DW5570: how can i use the WWAN under High Sierra?

    Let's try to communicate with device itself and check what we will get. If you device is used you might get a notification that resource is busy and you will not be able to use any of those commands. Since I haven't found a way to release previously used device under macOS I can only suggest you to restart your system and to open Terminal before trying to connect. Please note that delete doesn't work, so type commands slowly in order to avoid mistakes. If you made any mistake, just press enter and type whole command again. Restart your system, open Terminal and type: screen /dev/tty.wwan 115200 You will only get a cursor at top left corner. Type ATI5 and press Enter. You should get response from your modem. Something like this: Manufacturer: Sierra Wireless, Incorporated Model: EM7305 Revision: SWI9X15C_05.05.58.00 r27038 carmd-fwbuild1 2015/03/04 21:30:23 IMEI: 3X3XX605XX20XX2 IMEI SV: 18 FSN: FL5211XX23XX10 +GCAP: +CGSM OK Type AT!GSTATUS? and press Enter. You should get status report: !GSTATUS: Current Time: 5426 Temperature: 28 Bootup Time: 0 Mode: ONLINE System mode: LTE PS state: Attached LTE band: B20 LTE bw: 10 MHz LTE Rx chan: 6300 LTE Tx chan: 24300 EMM state: Registered Normal Service RRC state: RRC Idle IMS reg state: No Srv RSSI (dBm): -64 Tx Power: 0 RSRP (dBm): -93 TAC: 2XX5 (1XX73) RSRQ (dB): -9 Cell ID: 001XX8X0 (15XX2X2) SINR (dB): 2.6 OK What is your Mode? ONLINE, LOW POWER MODE or something else? Based on your PPP log I am 99.99% sure that you will not get LOW POWER MODE, but I want to be sure.

    [SOLVED] E7450 (Optimus) - miniDP issues

    @black.dragon74 I am very sorry, but looks like I jumped to conclusion (as usual). ROM value is actually masked before base64 encoding while I expected encoded value itself to be masked. I saw that SMBIOS values are set to XX-MASKED-XX, but I saw that ROM data is set to WFgtTUFTS0VELVhY, while I expected it to see XX-MASKED-XX there too. I thought it's base64 representation of newly generated ROM value, while it is actually base64 representation of XX-MASKED-XX. I would see that ROM value is changed if I was comparing config from archive with config I used to run a script, but I was already restored my original config just after script finished. Thank you for a great tool and sorry for a confusion I made.

This doesn't look like low power issue to me. I would say that it actually connects, but doesn't pass the protocol negotiation for some reason. I can see from your previous post that you are using Plus GSM. Have you tried to set your APN, but to left user and password blank as suggested? APN: plus Username: left blank Password: left blank btw. it's better to attach your log in your message, since some people would not bother to go to download host just to download your log.

    [SOLVED] E7450 (Optimus) - miniDP issues

    I am little paranoid about my serials, so I changed all of them first, since I didn't know that they are masked. At the end turns out that it actually was a good call, since manually entered ROM value in RtVariables is not masked. You can find debug archive in attachment. If you need anything else, just let me know. debug_8574.zip

    [SOLVED] E7450 (Optimus) - miniDP issues

    MiniDP works perfectly for me, even I am using MacBookAir7,2 without that patch. I just played Youtube video over both MiniDP and HDMI. Connects instantly on both and sound works without any problem. If you need any of my files for review, just let me know.

    DW5570: how can i use the WWAN under High Sierra?

    Please go to System Preferences / Network, select your WWAN card, click on Advanced and go to PPP tab. Select Use verbose logging, apply everything and try to connect. Find and send your /var/log/ppp.log after that. Let's see what we can figure out from there.

    DW5570: how can i use the WWAN under High Sierra?

    Before you give up, can you please check and post info about your card from Hardware / USB and Network / WWAN from System Information, so we can compare few things with info I am getting. Even I have different card (DW5809e) in different Dell laptop (E7450), some basic things should be same. Your card should be shown correctly in all of those places. My card is under USB 2.0 Bus inside Hardware / USB and info about it looks like this: Dell Wireless 5809e Gobi™ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband Card: Product ID: 0x81b1 Vendor ID: 0x413c (Dell Inc.)

Inside Network / WWAN I can see this info: WWAN Information: Dell_Wireless_5809e_Gobi____4G_: Device Version Number: 6 idProduct: 0x81b1 idVendor: 0x413c IMEI: 3535XXXXXX20XX2 IMSI: XX00XX00XX32XX4 locationID: 0x1d180000 @ 0 LOCK_STATE: UNLOCKED Manufacturer: Sierra Wireless, Incorporated Model: EM7305 Modem Software: SWI9X15C_05.05.58.00 r27038 carmd-fwbuild1 2015/03/04 21:30:23 Network Name: Unknown Serial#: 3X3XXXX53XXX9X2 WWAN_TYPE: GSM I am especially curios about your LOCK_STATE and Modem Software. Can you see your WWAN inside Network along with your Ehternet, WiFi and Bluetooth? Have you tried to use Default configuration without any Account Name or Password and empty APN?

    [SOLVED] E7450 HS: No sound after lid close

    At the end I removed EAPDFix.kext and replaced it with CodecCommander.kext I had to modify Info.plist inside CodecCommander.kext, since there is no entry for my card ALC3235 (ALC293). <key>10ec_0293</key> <string>Realtek ALC3235</string> My codec dump is very similar to ALC292 dump (0x1a and 0x15 are basically same), so I just duplicated and adjusted ALC292 config. <key>Realtek ALC3235</key><dict> <key>Custom Commands</key> <array> <dict> <key>Command</key> <string>0x01a70724</string> <key>Comment</key> <string>Node 0x1a - Pin Control (In Enable / VRefEn)</string> <key>On Init</key> <true/> <key>On Sleep</key> <false/> <key>On Wake</key> <true/> </dict> <dict> <key>Command</key> <data> AVcIgw== </data> <key>Comment</key> <string>0x15 SET_UNSOLICITED_ENABLE 0x83</string> <key>On Init</key> <true/> <key>On Sleep</key> <false/> <key>On Wake</key> <true/> </dict> </array> <key>Perform Reset</key> <false/></dict> My speaker and headphones now works even after lid close.

    DW5570: how can i use the WWAN under High Sierra?

    I hope that admins would not treat this post as off-topic, since purpose of this post is to help you and probably other people to change USBCOMP mode on their WWAN cards in order to use them under macOS. Looks like you do not have persistent storage enabled on your USB, you do not have universe repository added or both. If you have Windows machine, it's probably easiest to use LiLi (LinuxLive USB Creator). You can find instructions here. It is possible that persistent is not enabled by default, even if you created USB properly. You might need to check your grub config to see if persistent is enabled: /boot/grub/grub.cfg Your LIVE menu item probably looks something like this: menuentry "Ubuntu 16.04 LIVE" { set gfxpayload=keep linux /casper/vmlinuz.efi file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet splash --- initrd /casper/initrd.lz } Just add new menu entry that looks like this: menuentry "Ubuntu 16.04 LIVE persistent" { set gfxpayload=keep linux /casper/vmlinuz.efi file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet splash persistent --- initrd /casper/initrd.lz } In case it still doesn't work after all this, add universe repository and do update: sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo apt-get update

    DW5570: how can i use the WWAN under High Sierra?

    I made a kext for HS based on what Hervé suggested to me, but card didn't work until I changed USBCOMP mode. You absolutely need to change card's USBCOMP mode (from Linux or Windows), since card can't work in macOS with it's default mode, even if kext is perfectly fine. I would recommend to set USBCOMP mode to 14, since that way card will work in macOS, Windows and Linux and you will probably not have to change it ever again. If you do not care about other OS, you can set it to either 14, 6 or 8 - all of them will work in macOS. It is probably easiest to change USBCOMP mode from Linux with swi_setusbcomp.pl script. Just use a Ubuntu USB stick with persistent storage and install those packages (even I am not sure if modem-manger-gui is actually needed): sudo apt-get install perl sudo apt-get install libuuid-tiny-perl sudo apt-get install libipc-shareable-perl sudo apt-get install modem-manager-gui Download script from here and run it like this: sudo perl swi_setusbcomp.pl --usbcomp=14 I changed PID value in my Legacy_Sierra_QMI_10.13.kext in order to make it work for you (in attachment), but it would only work after you change USBCOMP mode. Good luck. Legacy_Sierra_QMI_10.13.kext.zip
  11. When you press caps lock button for the first time, led on that button turns on and case is switched. When you press caps lock again, only thing that happens is that led turns off. Just try to remember that every time when you need to switch case, you should press caps lock button twice and you should be good.

    [FIXED] E7450: issues with audio and trackpad after sleep

    Few days ago I installed A18 for a quick test and I was prepared to restore A17 immediately, but everything works the same, so I decided to keep it. I have few slight issues, but those issues are same with both versions of BIOS. I also have a slight screen glitch on boot when progress bar is around 50%. It lasts about half of a second, but I still can notice it. Second stage boot patch just doesn't work for me. I am using 10.13 version of that patch (since I am on 10.13.2). I even tried to add new Clover flag HorizontalSyncPulseWidth (witch is introduced as second part of solution for that specific issue) with values of 100, 32 and 35, but none of them worked for me. I tired with Clover 4369 and Clover 4380. I have no idea what else to try, but you can try to use that patch alone or with HorizontalSyncPulseWidth=100 in boot params. Maybe it would work for you. I also have a slight problem with sound, but only if I close the lid when I am on battery. You can try to experiment with values inside EAPDFix.kext as Jake suggested to me to resolve similar issue. Brightness and trackpad works just fine here with both A18 and A17.
  13. I recently noticed that sometimes I have no sound. Everything starts to work as soon as I reboot. First thing that I suspected is that I have no sound after sleep. It turns out that if I choose Sleep from main menu, I have sound after wake, with or without power supply connected. Finally I figured out that if I close the lid while I am not on power supply, laptop goes to sleep (as expected), but I have no sound after wake. Everything looks correct in output screen even after sound stops working. I checked my config. Layout ID is 11 with Lilu and AppleALC and I have EAPDFix. Hibernation is properly disabled: System-wide power settings: Currently in use: standbydelay 10800 standby 1 womp 1 hibernatefile /dev/null powernap 1 gpuswitch 2 halfdim 1 networkoversleep 0 disksleep 10 sleep 1 autopoweroffdelay 28800 hibernatemode 0 autopoweroff 1 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 10 lidwake 1 I am using patched files that Jake made from my origin while I was struggling with my first HS installation. Am I missing something obvious as usual? Should I try with patched files from latest E7450_Disable840M_A17_HS.zip instead?

    DW5809e: how can i use the WWAN?

    Thank you very much Hervé! I finally found some time for reading and experimenting and I successfully accomplished my goal to make DW5809e work in both High Sierra and Windows 10, since I have dual boot on E7450. Patch that you sent helped a lot. I might done some minor tweaks, but essentially I am using the same patch that you posted. Everything is actually very easy and can be done in few minutes when you have all information and when you know what you are doing. Funny thing is that for me it was easier to change USBCOMP mode from Linux then to make card properly loaded by OS. Looks like that use of FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext instead of USBInjectAll.kext is always preferred way of solving issues with loading of internal USB devices. I found out that is better to use USBCOMP=14 instead 6 or 8, since it sets both 6 and 9 in same time. MacOS will use 6 and Windows 10 will continue to use cards default USBCOMP mode which is 9. Card debranding is not needed and I would not recommend it. I had to set APN, Account Name and Password manually. Connection is stable, but speed test shows only about 10 Mbps. I will need to investigate this. Also, I am not sure why network name is listed as Unknown even when I am connected. btw. looks like you were one of those lucky guys with high speed modems. I remember downloading a single 800x600px GIF image for 5 minutes at 2800 bauds.

    E7450 : Problem with High Sierra installer

    In previous post I sent you my complete Clover folder with all 3 file system drivers: HFSPlus.efi, apfs.efi and NTFS.efi (you would probably only need HFSPlus), patched files for E7450 that have both graphics and config that use those patches. All needed HS patches and drop tables are also properly added to that config. That should boot on any E7450 that have both graphics without any problem, as long as BIOS version is A17, USB device and used USB port works, USB is properly prepared and BIOS is correctly set. Since I was struggling with some issues myself when I installed HS for the first time, I would advice you to check all those things: 1. Are you sure that your E7450 have both intel and nvidia graphics and not only intel? If you only have intel you need different boot pack then those I sent. If you are not sure and do not have Windows installed, run some live Linux from USB and check. 2. Are you sure that you use A17 bios and not A15, or A18 that just came out? I don't know if A18 works since I haven't tried it yet, so please use A17. 3. Have you reset your BIOS to defaults and set necessary options? Check your BIOS. A17 should be displayed in System information. Load Defaults and set Boot List Option to UEFI, SATA Operation to AHCI and Enable Legacy Option ROMs. Do not apply DVMT patch, use IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup.kext (already in both, latest bootpack and in archive I sent). 4. Are you sure that your USB stick and ports works properly? Try to use another USB port and (or) another USB stick. 5. Are you sure that your USB is properly prepared? Try to remove everything and made new USB install from scratch.
