my wifi usb key maybe?

That's what I was thinking... Can you try to create an account on a different Mac and then connect ?
To be honest I have no idea...

is the integrated CardReader working for you?

I don't have any SD card to try atm. But I guess that means it's not working for you ?

I'll check to see if I can fix this.

Try to install Realtek drivers from #####.

Also, if you are unable to click anywhere while experimenting with different Trackpad kexts, it is an incompatibility with the pointing stick (the joystick between G/H/B keys). Touch that pointing stick until you can click again.

@m45k ; Ethernet enable with inelE1000 kext, via mutlibeast 4.1 ;)
icloud and FaceTime not work over ethernet (working with chimera 1.6 and ##### install)
AppleHDA.kext needed maybe? you tell me to delete it...

thank you for your help :)

how to know that dsdt version?
graphicsenabler = no --> iTunes crash, luminosity control on keyboard work, graphic card 5mb
graphicsenabler = yes -- iTunes works, no luminosity control, graphic card nvs 4200mb 512mb

with the new dsdt the graphic card is recognized with graphicsenable=no, so i think it is not possible to get brightness control with the new dsdt atm.

the trackpad thing is driving me crazy, I'm still trying to get it working.
