  1. I am not able to get WiFi Personal hotspot working between my iPhone and laptop - Any ideas on what might need to be done? The personal hotspot is enabled and BT and USB Cable connection works. But Instant Hotspot does not work and getting the message after a couple of minutes appear: Failed to enable Personal Hotspot on "iPhone" Check to see if the device is turned on and in range of your computer. - Laptop has WiFi and BT Enabled - iPhone has WiFi and BT Enabled - Both devices are paired No Instant Hotspot icon ever appears.
  2. Hey @Jake Lo I tried adding BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext along with BrcmFirmwareData and BrcmPatchRAM2 to have the following in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other AirportBrcmFixup.kext AppleALC.kext BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext BrcmFirmwareData.kext BrcmPatchRAM2.kext CPUFriend.kext CPUFriendDataProvider.kext FakePCIID.kext FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelMausi.kext Lilu.kext NoTouchID.kext USBPorts.kext VoodooBatterySMC.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext WhateverGreen.kext However when adding these kexts the BT and Wireless stop working.
  3. I have been running a Dell DW1560 on Precision 7510 however the BT recently stopped working. As per wiki supported Dell DW1560 NGFF/M.2 14e4-43b1 BCM4352 A/B/G/N/AC Y Y Y Y N DSDT/Brcm4360 patch I used to use: BrcmFirmwareData.kext BrcmPatchRAM2.kext However these now do not work and when dropping them in to CLOVER Kext Other directory the wireless stops working. Wireless is working Ok with the most recent version of AirportBRCMFixup 2.06 10.15.4 (19E287) BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter: Name: pci14e4,43b1 Type: Network controller Driver Installed: Yes MSI: Yes Bus: PCI Slot: [email protected],28,0/0,0 Vendor ID: 0x14e4 Device ID: 0x43b1 Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x106b Subsystem ID: 0x0019 Revision ID: 0x0003 Link Width: x1 Link Speed: 2.5 GT/s
  4. No Idea why this was such a pain. Reverted back to using the other method to disable dGPU No problem using Intel FB when doing it the other way.
  5. @Hervé Not sure what I am missing here. Any chance you could advise on what needs inserting? i have the following config : https://github.com/nickelnoff/Dell-Precision-7510-OSX/blob/10.14/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist these are the working keys: <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key> <data> BQA7GQ== </data> <key>device-id</key> <data> GxkAAA== </data> then I think I need to set as follows: ig-platform-id: 05003B19 device-Id: 1B190000 I therefore set as follows: But this gives Graphics Driver Failed to load as shown:
  6. @Hervé all patching was already in place this is why I am puzzled to why I see this error. 193B0005 is what is defined in CLOVER Device Properties I tried specifying it again (even though it is in CLOVER) as shown here: however when starting I see: not sure on next steps
  7. @Jake Lo just to clarify this is what happens: 1.enable switchable graphics in the BIOS 2. Set Clover debug: -v -debug=0x100 3. machine seems to stop wegnoegpu is set as well - tried booting without tried setting 0x12345678 for igpu same result. Tricky to capture due to small font size Edit: attached best I could do screenshot
  8. @Jake Lo I put this in place and Set switchable graphics but her kernel panic
  9. Thanks @Jake Lo- managed to get booted up. I seemed to have needed to clear other config renames out as well as SSDTs - not entirely sure what was responsible but now writing on very choppy graphics with the NV dGPU running. Will try and disable. Any help appreciated. Currently seeing: DSDT.dsl.zip
  10. @kushwavez agree to a point. Never used windows much on this system. I seem to recall when the system was first bought through I was getting a little bit not load more battery life. But then NVidia dGPU was not disabled. i was however getting 3+ hours battery life with Ubuntu 18.04 though. Again with NV disabled. As you say could just be the OS but I suspect there is some thing draining since I’ll get jump decreases when doing things like rebooting. another thing I have seen is that the fans can be noisy and then I’ll sleep the system and wake and the fans have quieted down and battery drain seems to have slowed. @Hervé I removed the UEFI disabled method last night and ran a CMOS reset to get back to default settings. Clover now shows (under Graphics option) both GPUs a present however unable to boot successfully back in to Mojave. Kernel panic seems to occur followed by a reboot. I tried removing boot option: -wegnoegpu tried adding -nv_disable=1 tried adding checking InjectNvidia using FakeId: 0x12345678 any suggestions on how to proceed?
  11. @Hervé Agreed my take on this the UEFI method was that if its not getting picked up in the IOREG then it's gone. Any suggestions on other elements of the system to check to what might be draining battery ?
  12. Thanks @Hervé was aware of these Skylake particulars. The method I used to disable dGPU was via UEFI configuration method does this not have the same end affect as SSDT disabling?
  13. I have pretty short battery life on my laptop (specs in sig). Basically I am not sure why but in around 2 hours of web browsing the battery is just about gone. I seem to have speed stepping working and the frequency can be seen to vary with the Intel Power Gadget. However AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext does not seem to be loaded. Any help appreciated.
  14. Here's an updated EFI - not sure the last post was quite what I was using. Kudos @Kernel_Pan1c for the USB-C fix. Only thing looking for now is USB-C Hot plug fix. @Hervé and of course the F11 F12 Brightness EFI.zip
  15. @Ahmed Essam Here's my EFI Folder - same build as yours. BIOS Disable the dGPU using the EFI Utility EFI.zip
  16. @Hervé @Jake Lo Thanks for your help on this for the past month or so. Attached is my final EFI zip which I am running 10.14.6 with. Post with archive if you see fit. I have most things working and decided I can't afford to invest any time in trying to get the things that don't work working. As far as I can tell these are the things that aren't working: USB-C Thunderbolt Not too worried since I only have one USB-C device F11/F12 Brightness keys - this I did have working through Karabiner but decided I preferred to keep the system "Clean" - Fn+B nd Fn+S work anyway for Brightness p and Down. Obvious things such as smart card reader and fingerprint reader and SDCard reader. Following work ok: Display outputs Sound out from laptop Sound out over DP and HDMI 4k Display with additional 2 monitors Battery seems ok but not great 2.5-3 hours - Windows and Linux however had less battery life. EFI.zip
  17. Wierd thing is that it only started once I changed graphic platform ig. Wasnt there out noticeable before. Any suggestions on getting the Alpine Ridge TB controller working? It getting USB pass in NG through?
  18. ok that was simply solved by adding string hda-gfx keyword with value "onboard-1" to the HDEF Device Property. Get a slight boot glitch towards the end of the booting. Apple log sort of spreads itself horizontally across the screen for a split second.
