    [SOLVED] E7440 - Broken Headphone Audio

    Ah, sorted it. Missed this step:- - Those kexts should be copied to /Library/Extensions

    [SOLVED] E7440 - Broken Headphone Audio

    I have the same issue, running 10.13.6 Static on headphone port, when built in speaker audio is fine. Plugging in the headphones gives static (LOUD), and the output device name changes from Dahili Hoparlorler to Kulaklik Named kexts appear to be in the right place, and have done repair permissions and rebuilt the cache. Any ideas?

    Holy crap, 2 random reboots later, and it works. THANKS!

    [SOLVED] E7450 Wifi card installed, but not working

    OK, done. No joy. I had those 4 kexts already, so assume I now just have updated ones. Still no bluetooth stuff shown in System Information under 'Bluetooth', and similarly nothing about bluetooth under USB. Under Network, I see Bluetooth PAN, and the same Wifi Airport as before. I still can't turn the device 'ON'. thanks
  5. A17 seems to have fixed it, thanks.

    Thanks Jake Lo. I've not sourced kext files before. Where do I get these from?

    [SOLVED] E7450 Wifi card installed, but not working

    I found an article on here about 'origin' folders. Mine was empty. Have pasted in the contents of the given ZIP, but it hasn't helped. If anything, it's worse. System Information is now just showing it as a 'AirPort' again in type and hardware.

    [SOLVED] E7450 Wifi card installed, but not working

    Update - have now used Clover to edit plist on Kernel & Kext Patches Page. I had a line for "AirPortBrcm4360" that was set to disable. I've now enabled and rebooted. About my Mac now shows:- Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x24) Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (7.77.37.31.1a9) That's a step forward. Nothing shown under Bluetooth devices. Suspect I need kext or more patches, but no idea where to start.
  9. Hi I've been running an E7450 with an external wifi dongle, due to incompatibility with the built in Intel card. I've now been able to install a Broadcom card (Dell DW1830 WiFi + Bluetooth card HHKJD BCM943602BAED). This is showing up on the top-bar in finder, and is visible in preferences and About this Mac. I can see it's come up as en4, and that it has a MAC address. However, it's "off". Turning it "on" does nothing. About Mac shows it as Type 'Airport' and Hardware 'AirPort' It's shown as 'status: inactive' when I run ifconfig -a Any ideas on getting this working?
  10. System is clean as a whistle. Recent new install, so not any crud in startup or indexing.
  11. Hi, My kernel_task process always seems to run at 10% CPU, even if the laptop is idle... and it's taking 1GB of RAM. Normal?

    [SOLVED] E7450 - Cannot install 10.13.5 update

    That install process is now completed. Machine rebooted. I'm back into my desktop (hoorah!) About this Mac reports 10.13.5 . SWEET, thanks.

    [SOLVED] E7450 - Cannot install 10.13.5 update

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply and the advice. I ran "diskutil cs revert /dev/disk1" as advised, and rebooted. Ran installer. Machine reboots at the same point on the black screen with white progress bar. Then appeared to boot normally (slowly)until boot progress bar at around 60% then rebooted again. Next reboot the same, gets to 60% and reboots. Rinse and repeat. At this point I thought I was locked out. Then it rebooted and repeated the above 2 or 3 more times. Then another very slow boot, and now in a grey window with round picture at the top, message saying 'Installing on "macOS" ', and 'About 43 mins remaining' Don't recall this on the 7240. Minutes later, still showing 'About 42 minutes remaining'. Now about half-way on progress bar, and 30 remaining.
