Amazing work man, this is definitely a revolution, well done!

 

I just installed it and it works like a charm! Feels absolutely native!ely going to keep it!

--- EDIT AFTER 1 DAY OF USE --
It still have issues with palm detection, but works flawlessly for the rest. I'm definit

Palm rejection will work when RehabMan releases the new version of VoodooPS2 with the-darkvoid's new features. There is nothing I can do at the moment to hasten that. Alternatively you can build VoodooPS2 yourself with the-darkvoid's changes incorporated - v2.1.1 of VoodooI2C will automatically support it if you do that :)

Since I have this laptop myself, I thought I would let you guys know: I have just pushed v2.1 of VoodooI2C which replaces our custom multitouch engine with fully fledged native gestures. This means that your I2C trackpad will work almost identically to a Magic Trackpad 2 (save for force touch of course). Keep in mind that v2.1 doesn't support Mojave yet but I will push a new release to support it when it goes gold.

Note also that, thanks to experimental USB support on VoodooI2C, v2.1 supports the USB touchscreen on the XPS. As a result, we now have proper gestures on the touchscreen without purchasing touchbase's drivers.

Please make sure to read the "Supported Gestures" page for important information when using native gestures.
 

 

this is awesome, can't thank you enough!!

how is the pinch to zoom in/out working for you? (or is it not supported?)

 

I get it to zoom in most of the time, zoom out is more finicky :)

 

not complaining though, since the rest of it is smoother than it has ever been

 

(and now i get what you meant with palm detection, i usually use docked with external peripherals, so didn't realize :D)

      This follows my previous guide for macOS Sierra.
       
      0. What works and does not
      Works
      - CPU power management
      - QE/CI on Integrated Intel HD 4000
      - Keyboard/Trackpad
      - HDMI and LVDS output
      - Audio: Headphone, speaker, HDMI (?).
      - Ethernet
      - Camera
      - Battery info
      - Bluetooth
      - USB
       
      Does NOT work
      - Internal Wifi. Workaround: USB wifi or replace your internal wifi with a supported mPCI-e card.
      - Sleep: does not work with an USB wifi. Workaround: Replace your internal wifi with a supported card.
      - VGA out. Workaround: Use an « active » HDMI to VGA adapter. I use this way to connecting my laptop to projectors.
      - Discrete AMD GPU
      - Card reader. Workaround: Use an external USB card reader.
       
       
      1. Specs
      My Dell Inspiron 15R SE still has the following specs (I haven't upgraded it since Yosemite) :
      - Intel Core i7 3632QM with Intel HD Graphic 4000
      - 8GB + 4GB RAM (12GB total)
      - 128GB Samsung EVO SSD + 1TB HDD
      - AMD Radeon 7730M, won't be used by any Hackintosh build
      - Full HD 15.4" screen
       
      2. Requirements
      - A Dell 7520, of course
      - An USB Stick, minimum 16GB. Any 16GB should work.
      - A pair of USB Mouse / Keyboard during the installation and fixes (you can use your built in keyboard and touchpad later)
      - An existing Hackintosh (or a real Mac, if you have any )
      - Downloaded «Install macOS Mojave Beta» from App Store.
      - A GPT-partitioned hard drive
      - A 20GB (minimum) partition as the target.
      - Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher
       
      3. Create USB Install. For full guide please see here
      - Boot your existing Hackintosh or real Mac.
      - First you need to be sure that you have downloaded the app «Install macOS Mojave Beta» from App Store (Developer account is required).
      - Use Disk Utilities to partition your USB stick with 1 partition in GPT mode, and choose «OS X Extended (Journaled)» as partition type. Note: don't use any space in label of your disk.
      - Run Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher, select the installer app, select usb disk as target.
      - Be patient. It's quite slow.
      - Download and install Clover Bootloader v4658 to the usb disk, note to install using EFI boot only
      - Copy attached config.plist to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/
      - Copy attached kexts to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/
      - Download NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and put it in /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/
      - Reboot after finishing creating your USB for installation.
       
      4. Install
      - During boot, press F12 to have boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004 to boot the installation.
      - It should boot directly to the installation UI. Choose language.
      - On top menu, select Utilities and Disk Utility.
      - Format your target partition as OS X Extended (Journaled). APFS can be used but it's your own risks
      - Exit Disk utility.
      - Start Install, choose your newly formatted partition. Follow the instruction. Wait for a while (in my case I waited around 10 minutes).
      - It will restart your computer as soon as it finishes the file copy.
      - You still need to boot from USB. Hit F12 during boot to show boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004, select your installed partition and press Enter.
      - You will be able to see user creation. Follow the instructions on screen. When you get to your desktop.
      - Reboot, you should be able to use both LVDS and HDMI outputs (with ig-platform-id 01660003) with proper kext and config.plist attached.
       
       
      Welcome to macOS Mojave!

       
      5. Device fixes
      Most of the fixes are included in the attached kext zip.
      5.1. CPU Power Management
      Works fine with macOS Mojave (official version) as long as you use ssdtPRGen.sh as instructed here. Don't forget to delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext afterward.
      5.2. Wifi
      The integrated wifi doesn't work. At all. I used an external wifi dongle TP Link WN725N (v2) for Internet access. After that I replaced the internal wifi with a Atheros AR5B29 and it works natively
      If you use this AR5B29, copy the attached AirPortAtheros40.kext into /System/Library/Extensions
      config.plist.zip
      kexts.zip
      AirPortAtheros40.kext.zip

      Hi, there
      My desktop hackintosh cannot enter the Sleep Mode.
      I mean it can enter the sleep mode for a few seconds and it will automatically wake up itself.
      How can I fix this issue.
      Thanks for your help.
