    Cypress PS2 Trackpad kext

    Any idea on the sensitivity? Between the trackapd only working as a mouse and getting random freezes all the time, i finally gave up and just put windows on my machine, but would love to try again. The multitouch did work on my XPS 13 L321X, but it wouldnt ignore my palm, and just putting my finger on the pad would act as a click. Is it just a case of changing some of the values of the info.plist to decrease sensitivity?

    Cypress PS2 Trackpad kext

    The Sierra version is extremely sensitive for me on a Dell XPS L321X. Just placing my finger on the touchpad is registering as a button press. Any ideas how to make this work better because I really would like to have multitouch gestures (at minimum two finger scrolling)
  3. This worked for mic and sound with my n4110. AppleHDA-276.26-ALC269VB_v4.zip
  4. Unsure on audio then. I assumed they were all the same. Keyboard FN keys are a known issue with Sierra, its affecting all hackintoshes.
  5. You have the two patches and the injection to config.plist? Also, you did rebuild cache, right? If it doesnt work, im not sure why. I didnt patch it, so I dont totally understand what would be different. I would think these laptops would all have the same audio
  6. Many Many thanks to Mirone for helping with AppleHDA. Here is working sound and mic for ALC269VB in Sierra for this N4110 AppleHDA-276.26-ALC269VB_v4.zip
  7. for the kexts 95% of them are the first results in google... just type the exact name, rehabman hosts a majority of them
  8. Im not sure if mine was the newest. Try getting the newest one from the link I provided.
  9. VoodooPS2Controller.kext versions prior to 1.8.24 will cause a KP Update to 1.8.24. Do you have the newest one? https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller
  10. What are the specs of your N4110? I cant guarantee what worked for me will work for all as they have different chipsets. If yours is stopping at pullmode[1] txrlngsize[256], i have never seen that one so I am not sure. If you have similar specs to mine, follow my steps regarding El Capitan install/and or copy my Clover folder and make sure you have the right requirements in place as specified for El Cap.
  11. Note regarding CPU power management and SSDTs If you're getting a panic in AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement and/or SMC_ACPI_PlatformPlugin it may be related to your OEM CPU power management related SSDTs. Some systems may need to drop some of the OEM SSDTs. This happens most frequently with Sandy Bridge systems (but not all). There are two configurations for DropTables in the provided config.plist files. The default is minimal. The alternate is named #DropTables and is a bit more aggressive. Each configuration resides in config.plist/ACPI. You can use the alternate by renaming DropTables->##DropTables and renaming #DropTables->DropTables (in that order). Depending on how the OEM labels the tables, this may or may not work. If you still have issues, set config.plist/ACPI/SSDT/DropOem=true. You will need to set config.plist/ACPI/SSDT/Generate=true (or the individual CStates/PStates=true) to use DropOem=true or the alternate DropTables. Always use a plist editor (such as Xcode or PlistEdit Pro) to edit config.plist. Try deleting the DSDT and SSDT in /ACPI/Patched. You obviously will need one for your own hardware after install. The config.plist i provided should already have the above in it, but double check it. I used the more aggressive option. You shouldnt need a patched DSDT and SSDT for the installer AFAIK
  12. Here is my clover folder from the usb i used to boot the installer. Keep in mind it doesnt have the theme folder, so you'll need that with the bluemac theme. IMPORTANT: Download and install Clover r3625 to your usb. Under theme choose bluemac. *Basically follow the clover guide from Rehabman (mine was for UEFI booting). My N4110 has Realtek 8105 ethernet and Fresco Logic USB 3.0, so the kexts in the /Other folder might not work for you. Let me know if you have any luck! CLOVER.zip
  13. I have Sierra running pretty great on my N4110. Used the same procedure I posted to get El Capitan installed I posted several posts back. Works: Wifi 2.4/5.0 Bluetooth Sound Mic Battery Meter Brightness Graphics USB 2.0 & 3.0 This should be 100% from what I can tell. Sound required ALC269VBv4 (patched AppleHDA.Kext attached here), plus some patches applied via Clover. I added the following to my config.plist. Wifi/BT I changed the oem card to the Azureware BCM94352HMB. It requires fakepciid.kext and fakepciid_Broadcom_WiFi.kext. In Sierra it now requires a patch (see the config.plist screenshot) USB was USBInjectAll.kext (newest one updated for Sierra) and USBXHCI_FL1009.kext (Fresco Logic USB3 only) Battery Meter required DSDT patch from Rehabman for XPS13 and ACPIBatteryManager.kext Brightness Meter was DSDT patch from Rehabman for HD3000 Bluetooth was BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext AppleHDA-276.26-ALC269VB_v4.zip
  14. I was able to get 10.11.6 to successfully install and boot, and have eliminated most problems with it. This is my specific hardware. USB3 and Ethernet were tracked down in ioreg. I cant guarantee this will work for any other model, but this should help at least some people. Intel Core i7-2640m - Series 6 - HM67 chipset - 6GB DDR3 - HD3000 1366x768- Realtek RTL8105 Ethernet - Fresco Logic FL1009 USB3 - Azureware Broadcom BCM94352HMB wifi/bluetooth (this is replaced from the OEM Intel Centrino card) Rehabman was a HUGE help in figuring this all out. First off, previous posts state that if you had Realtek 8100 ethernet you had Renesas/NEC USB3, and if you had Realtek 8111 Gigabit you had Fresco Logic USB3. Turns out, this particular laptop has 8100 Fast Ethernet with Fresco Logic FL1009 USB3. Im not going to write a guide on how to put the El Capitan installer from appstore onto a usb stick. There are plenty of guides out there. I used a 16GB USB 2.0 stick. USB stick is GUID and formatted HFS+J Ill give the specific details on what I did unique to make this all work: Clover r3625 Options checked on clover install customize: Install for UEFI only Bluemac theme OsxAptioFixDrv-64 from Drivers64UEFI After install, download HFSPlus.efi from https://github.com/JrCs/CloverGrowerPro/raw/master/Files/HFSPlus/X64/HFSPlus.efiand copy it to copy it to /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI Remove the folders EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, leaving just 'Other' In the Other folder install the following Kexts: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-FakeSMC-kozlek https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-usb-inject-all/downloads In google, type injector kext + FL1009 + rehabman. Choose the first result from google. In the 2nd post download the file USBXHCI_FL1009.kext . Place this file in the Other folder as well. Next we need to install a config.plist file that matches our hardware. https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config/archive/master.zip From the file, we need config_HD3000_1366x768.plist. Copy it to your desktop and rename it config.plist Before putting it in our EFI/Clover folder, we need to modify it, or we will get a kernel panic in AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. Use a plist editor, like Xcode or similar to open the .plist file. In conflig.plist/ACPI rename DropTables to ##DropTables and then rename #DropTables to DropTables Next under config.plist/ACPI/SSDT/Generate, change CStates and PStates to true for both (YES in Xcode) Save the changes and place the config.plist file on your desktop in /EFI/Clover/ overwriting the file thats there. Done, boot from USB, select the installer and it should do its magic. From this point update Clover onto the HDD, and install all kexts to the system volume. You'll still need to install kexts and/or DSDT edits for wifi, battery, audio, ethernet, bluetooth, brightness slider, etc. Im not going to get into these. There are several guides out there for these and they are straight forward.
  15. This was resolved thanks to help from Rehabman. Turns out I was fighting the wrong battle. I thought my USB3 ports were Renesas, but it turns out they were Frisco Logic FL1009, and this was playing havoc on kernal_task (and on boot, there were lots of usb errors). The fix was to remove GenericUSBXHCI.kext, and install a port injector from Rehabman. Google kext injector + fl1009 + rehabman, and it should be the first result on google, 2nd post on the link. This fixed the problem right away.
