[Post-Installation] L702X Sierra+Clover | What kexts?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I created 'Bootable Sierra USB' and successfully installed it on my old laptop 'Dell XPS 17 (L702X)' and it boots just fine.
Now I need to figure out which are the best kexts for my hardware to install.
So I'm asking for help from the experts, I need the following kexts for my hardware:

  • Ethernet
  • Audio
  • TouchPad (Synaptics)
  • Fn+Brightness Control
  • USB 2.0/USB 3.0
  • Any other important kexts I should install?

So can anyone guide me with links for the following kexts?

I also have 'config' and 'DSDT/SSDT' files from my old 'Yosemite' build can I use them on my 'Sierra'?

You need to identify your hardware specs in order to look for and (hopefully) find the relevant kexts. So you'll have to find out the exact model of your Ethernet/LAN card (for instance Intel i217-LM) and audio codec (for instance ALC292).


If you cannot identify the specs yourself, lookup the PCI ids in Windows Device Manager (you'll find vendor (VEN) + device (DEV) ids under one of the driver's tabs) or some other hardware scanning app. Dell's own online documentation should be checked too of course!

    • Nice @yapan4 then we can join forces to make this as good as possible.
    • I had a weird situation, after running great for a while: yesterday I did a reboot and got a KP. Turns out the AstekFusion2Adapter kexts were causing the KP, strange thing is I didn't recall applying any update or a like.  I had to boot with the USB installer, mount the EFI partition to delete the old AstekFusion2Adapter kexts and replaced with the patched version contributed by despeinao. I'm glad the system is working again, not having to reinstall OSX.
    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie   Ho creato un configplist , se vuoi provare , dovrebbe essere pulito da ogni impurità , se funziona dovrai adattarli tutte le tue personalizzazioni x il boot ..... config.plist.zip
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
