    system clock + screen brightness

    hi,when I switch between windows and macOS the system clock changes pretty drastically. Then I reboot and sometimes it fixes on its own. secondly, can't get the screen brightness +/- keys to work. Any thoughts? attached is debug. thanks! debug_Feb5.zip

    AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    InsanelyDeepak --- THANK YOU! I can now see internal speakers in preferences>sound, but sound still doesn't quite work. When I play music I see the internal mic volume going up, but internal speakers volume level were flat-lined. It's like it's mixing them up or something. Seriously though more progress than I've seen in a LONG time! Out of curiosity what did you change in the config?... so I can share what you changed to help others with similar problems. Anyways, here's the output from kextstat APPLEs-iMac:/ apple$ kextstat | grep -y hda 102 2 0xffffff7f820ca000 0xc000 0xc000 com.apple.iokit.IOHDAFamily (282.10) 917C1366-DF57-3FE5-A81C-D1111AB3DA4E <6 5 3 1> 103 1 0xffffff7f820d9000 0x1d000 0x1d000 com.apple.driver.AppleHDAController (282.10) 41CE33FB-FED7-36D3-A3DF-03B036329B10 <102 94 90 13 8 7 6 5 3 1> 137 0 0xffffff7f83362000 0xb7000 0xb7000 com.apple.driver.AppleHDA (282.10) 9BB2B0F6-EDD8-397A-9EBB-05508910C3EC <136 103 102 95 94 90 7 6 5 3 1> 138 0 0xffffff7f83419000 0x2000 0x2000 com.apple.driver.AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver (282.10) 85D7FB08-FE70-34A5-8525-0A3AA29225E9 <5 3> thanks!

    AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    Hi all, hoping someone can help me get audio working. I've been more or les lucky with things so far and have got most aspects of Mojave working EXCEPT THE AUDIO. It's brutal because I've been trying for about a month now on and off. I put lilu and audioHDA in library/extensions. I did an audio dump and I think (based on other's responses) that my codec is alc275, even though that's not my audio card. See attached. I tried putting in layoutID 3,13,and 28 as is suggested elsewhere. NEVER do i see any device in my sound settings. I've started down the path of trying to patch things myself and am running into non-stop walls. Really hoping I have overlooked something and can get audio without the patch route. see attached debug and codec dump. THANK YOU kind strangers. codec.txt debug_22944_DEC9.zip

    135 pgs of discussion? What do I do with the apple alc patches? I see a folder for alc275... Do I copy all these files ?

    AUDIO not working on Mojave (L421X)

    updated debug. Did an audio codec dump and tried layoutID 3, 13, and 28. Nothing working. debug_22944_DEC9.zip

    AUDIO not working on Mojave (L421X)

    have updated my profile information. Sorry about that! attached a latest debug package. I have lilu and alc installed to library/extensions. I have read elsewhere this is the best way to do it. Is it not? debug_3438_DEC8.zip

    AUDIO not working on Mojave (L421X)

    attached debugging files. I have most of Mojave working, power and video, etc. The remaining item is my audio ! I've been struggling for a while now and don't feel like I'm making much progress. I have the correct config file I believe. I think my problem is that I'm not injecting the audio correctly. I've opened up config in plist editor pro, went down to properties and removed the "#" from in front of layoutid, hdagfx, and comment. That did nothing. See attached photo. anyone have any thoughts? thanks in advance! debug_23916_DEC7.zip
  9. Below are details of how I installed Mojave on my dell xps14 (L421x) with windows as subsequent install/dual boot. I followed various tutorials and YouTube videos, and it took about 10 attempts, but here's what I have got! Hopefully this can be helpful to someone. I have merely installed Mojave but now need to install kexts (drivers) and have zero idea what I'm doing. Please see the end for my questions. Hopefully someone can help out. PREPARATION Backup everything. Need, at minimum, a USB mouse. Good idea to get list of hardware including motherboard. Make bootable windows USB (use Rufus) and hirens boot USB. Download Mojave from Mac store on a computer that doesn't have Mojave. Used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to make bootable macOS. Also make a folder on the USB and put into it Clover Configurator and clover installer. Bios settings change SATA to ACHI. UEFI rather than legacy. INSTALL MOJAVE Start by inserting Windows boot USB. Recovery. Disk part. Format and convert full hard drive to GPT (rather than MBR). Use hirens boot disk to get into temporary windows. Open disk management. Partitioned my SSD to NTFS except for ~300mb that I left as RAW unpartitioned. Shutdown. Boot up with macOS. Get into installer. Disk utility and 'erase’ the main drive and format as APFS. Install macOS on this drive. Once macOS is installed I will add a new large partition of NTFS to install Windows on. Note: during install my keyboard didn't work. For user and pass I right click-copied the word “Apple” from the terms agreement. When Mojave is running launch Clover installer. Install to main drive. Customize setting to turn on clover for UEFI booting, and under UEFI drivers turn on only vboxhfs, apfsdriverloader, and aptiomemoryfix. Launch Clover Configurator. Mount EFI. Mount partition for the USB. (Side note: go to finder, menu at top, finder, preferences, check box for hard drive). EFI folder appears in desktop (white drive). Copy EFI contents from there to the grey EFI folder on desktop (the macOS EFI) to replace them. Now can boot without USB! INSTALL Windows 10 and SET UP BOOTLOADER Reboot with Windows bootable USB. May need to hit F12 to select USB as boot option. When you get to hard drive selection wipe clean the drive you will install windows on and leave it RAW. Then install. Wait before doing major updates until all of the bootloaders are working. Copy the file CLOVERX64.efi from the EFI bootloader on your Mojave bootable USB. Copy that to C:\ drive. Reboot and enter BIOS. Create a new boot option called “clover” and for file location put “C:\CLOVERX64.efi Reboot, enter BIOS again and under “boot” put “clover” as the top boot option for UEFI. This will now open Clover on each boot and you can select either WINDOWS 10 or Mojave. I have tested, and they both work on my system. MY QUESTIONS How do I now get my keyboard, touch pad, and sound working? Do I scour the web for .kext files and randomly trying to place them in the EFI folder of my macOS clover install? Is it strictly a .kext file that I can use? When I tried adding the voodoops2controller kext to the USB folder EFI/clover/kexts/ to get the keyboard working I couldn't get passed the first progress bar after clover bootup. Is my setup safe for my computer and motherboard? I didn't do DSDT at all because it seems quite complicated. Do I need to do this in order for my computer to be safe? Is my current setup safe to run or are there no sensors in for processor temperature etc? Lastly, if I do want to try so.e DSDT configs can I do so without reinstalling macOS? In the bootloader I have a bunch of clover stuff that is cluttering things up (prebooter, etc.) Can I get rid of these somehow to clean things up to just: Mojave and Windows?
