  1. Hi all. I've been using the machine daily for a couple weeks, traveled with it. Fantastic. Even has decent battery life. I need to fix the display brightness buttons, but that's it functionally. Still have the issue of the large monitor however. I've tried the hotpatches etc from the various sites. Any ideas on how to get my high res running? Thanks, JM
  2. I didn’t experience the WiFi slowdowns. Maybe it’s random with that card. Anyone have time to look at a 4K monitor issue? @Hervé this has been my daily driver for two weeks. It’s going well.
  3. Small update: Re: bluetooth with my "almost-recommended card" is working fine. I only use a BT mouse, not mobile hotspot. DW1820A WLAN Wifi Wireless Mini Card Module 8PKF4 Re: camera, decided to start working on its own. Initially not detected by zoom or Webex, but after I received an incoming FaceTime call it unexpectedly has been working fine. I wonder if I had to start FT and assign a camera for the rest of the apps to work properly?
  4. IOReg file. @Hervé perhaps you could diff this against yours so I can see if I've got a different version of camera. Pls thanks. 7490.zip
  5. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAGUZ8SC2488 I purchased this one, not realizing the Model matters. Wifi works OOB, BT no. It's got a nice "genuine" hologram sticker covering part of the info on the front so I know it's genuine. /grin . Using a BT dongle for now. Haven't had time to look at the BT. @Hervé the time spent last week was worth it, running well. Not hot (but warmer then windows, I run fusion and a bunch of other stuff) and I need to figure out the key maps for the brightness. FN lock, Audio, sleep FN keys work. Presenting has been fine too. Need to test HDMI on a TV, lower quality monitors. Yesteday in a presentation the screen was perfect but purple toned. Also the camera isn't working but IO reg sees it.
  6. Ahh... got it. Don't apologize, you're doing work few can accomplish! Anyone have an opinion if you were to buy a new Dell today for daily driver and no limitations which would you pick? Don't see a thread on that. Also, please verify the shasum matches your expected pack. 9831a9fcc12bb07d676c402147e2e37786ca3b0a Clover_Pack_7490__5.zip I deleted the files form EFI entirely and placed yours there. Same result, no trackpad at installer.
  7. Not being obtuse... I dd my usb and am seeing the same thing as @muttonhead411 no trackpad at all. This is my USB.
  8. @muttonhead411 does you keyboard light up when you touch the pad? this is what mine did prior to adding the Kext to /L/E
  9. Thanks @Hervé I did use #4. The TP didn’t work until I copied the next to /L/E I formatted the drive - any chance I missed a partition or something?
  10. @Hervé Update, had to install kext to L/E. Trackpad works, 3/4" at a time. Not usable for daily driver, hence the recommendation I assume for an external one. Any others that might need this? DP over USB-C works too, but at default resolutions. I had this working at full 4k at one point, but don't recall how I pulled it off. JM
  11. @Hervé Should I assume I have to install i2c manually? Your install works fine ( I erased my USB3 SSD and started from scratch) so thank you for that but my trackpad still isn't working. The keys light up when I touch it, so the system does recognize the device to some level. What data can I provide? CLOVER.zip
  12. Got it. I’ll reload mine, and report back on the video output (DP over USB-C).
  13. That's hilarious! Do gestures work?
  14. Hi. I figured out I had removed (somehow) the voodoo kext and fixed the keyboard. Did you have specific I2C satellites you used for the trackpad? I'll have time to poke at it in a few hours. At this point I have three issues, the USB-C nic doesn't reconnect after sleep, the trackpad and most important to me is the external monitor issue - I've made a transition and have loaded the machine up with work and am on it daily now (even using docker and fusion), it's been reliable.
  15. I still don't know what to look at deeper for the USB-C DP video issue. Any ideas? It's detecting my monitor incorrectly.
