  1. Thanks. I now have a new revision of the bootpack here that also seems to greatly reduce the time to display for the filevault 2 screen. Brightness keys aren't working, but the volume keys are functional (with the on-screen display). That has me rather confused. No joy with HDMI - machine locks up, also get a boot error screen if HDMI plugged in then CLOVER_working6.zip
  2. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure. It is somewhat of a combination of your bootpack and the archive from here : https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11155-latitude-7480-install-mojave/ Some of the efi and kext packages were updated as well, to match current releases.
  3. So I ended up with the attached which gets me booting with FileVault 2 on my 7600U based E7480, but HDMI causes an instant lock-up and the display isn't responding to the special function keys (changing brightness, etc.). I was originally using Jake Lo's bootpack, but there I couldn't get the FileVault 2 login window to come up. I wondered if anything obvious stood out. clover_7480_fv2_r1.zip
  4. OK. This seems to work. I took Jake Lo's original bootpack and rolled in elements from https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11155-latitude-7480-install-mojave/ clover_7480_fv2_r1.zip
  5. Not sure whether the attached might be useful. Still no joy in getting FileVault2 bootable. efi.zip
  6. I couldn't figure out where to post this, so hopefully this is close to the correct place. Looking at the installed Clover version (4910), the efi drivers have -64 behind them. I was wondering whether the drivers from (https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases) might help with the FileVault LoginWindow being missing, but those lack the -64 in the name and make me uncertain about whether this is the right thing to do.
  7. Rough estimate from Philippe would be minimum of two months and ~1600 USD as a contract job to bring the driver up to par.
  8. I am waiting to hear back from Philippe to see what it might cost/take to get the driver updated. I'll use your troubles as an excuse to follow up with him. I should note that 'worked' turns out to be a little optimistic in my case. It recognizes inserted media, but doesn't really want to do much with it (e.g. formatting an SD card results in an obscure error message).
  9. It seems to be loaded : 141 0 0xffffff7f81198000 0x9000 0x9000 org.tw.CodecCommander (2.7.1) 114866EA-9E10-3A75-8084-CEEE9D344D9F <96 13 12 5 3 1>
  10. I have a working Mojave 10.14.4 install on a Dell Latitude e7480, having followed the guide here (https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-vostro-xps-clover-guide/?do=findComment&comment=87342) and using the bootpack from here (https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11315-dell-lattitude-7480-mojave-install-need-help/?tab=comments#comment-88501)
  11. I originally thought this was working well and got a surprise today when I put my headphones in and was subjected to a loud high pitch squeal/whine. Poking around a bit, it looks like this happens after the 3rd or so wake from sleep. This is with the bootpack from https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11315-dell-lattitude-7480-mojave-install-need-help/?tab=comments#comment-88501 and the rtsx kext I've been looking at for the SD card reader. I just wondered if others had experience this. I did notice the 7440 thread that talks about 'static', but am not certain if this is a similar issue.
  12. Depends on what it would cost. I'm waiting to see how practical this might be.
