[Guide] Dell XPS 13 9370 Mini Guide for Mojave

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Work in progress

 

This is mini guide and config files for installing Mojave on a Dell XPS 13 9370.

 

I took inspiration from sensibleJoe at on reddit

 

My laptop's specs

 

  • i7-8550U
  • Intel HD 620 Graphics
  • UHD Display
  • 256GB Samsung NVMe SSD PM961
  • Killer 1435 Wifi

 

Here is what works

 

  • Intel HD Graphics 
  • Sleep
  • Sound & Mic
  • USB Wifi (Internal Killer Wifi will not work)
  • Bluetooth
  • Power Management
  • Battery Management
  • Screen Brightness Control

 

What does not work

 

  • Internal Wifi
  • Camera
  • SD Card reader

 

 

 

I followed the vanilla guide here to create the Mac OS Mojave install USB. I used Mac OS 10.14.3.

 

Here are some rough steps

 

1. Create the USB installer for Mojave. You can use apple's own instructions

2. Once the installer USB creation is complete, Install the latest version of clover to the USB disk with the following options 

  • Install Clover for UEFI booting only

  • Install Clover to the ESP

     

    Leave everything else as default (minimal install without a bunch of drivers)

     

3. Then mount the EFI folder on the USB drive and replace the files in the config folder with the ones from the attached zip file over writing the files already there. This config is specifically for Dell XPS 13 9370.

4. Go into the UEFI/BIOS on the laptop, Make sure your SATA mode is set to AHCI (And not Raid). Save and Exit

5. Boot with the USB disk and install Mojave

6. After the install is complete, Use the USB to boot again but this time boot into the newly installed Mojave partition.

7. Install Clover on to the SSD with the same options as before.

8. Then copy the config files to the EFI folder on the SSD overwriting the config folder there.

9. Acquire the backlight AppleBacklightFixup.kext from here and install to /Library/Extensions (Thanks to Rehabman for the kext)

10. Reboot.

 

EDIT: V4 fixes many things, like powermanagement, backlight control etc. you also need to install AppleBacklightFixup.kext to /Library/Extensions

Hi,

did you also format the ssd for APFS with 4K sectors, using nvme-cli, 

and apply changes to the UEFI variables (CFG Lock, DVMT Pre-allocation, DVMT Total Gfx Memory)?

I got the axactly same XPS 13-9370 and had it intsalled mojave 10.14.4 with your efi configs.

the biggest problem is that the headphone jack doesn't work.

https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/releases 

in release 1.3.6 

  • Added ALC299 layout-id 22 for Dell XPS 13 by andreszerocross

i tried layout-id 21, 22 and they didn't work on my device.

wondering if you could make a try :D

Hmm. Have not tried the headphone jack. Let me see if I have the same issue.

      I have tried to install clover via no UEFI legacy mode (and with UEFI method) using the method here (http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-desktop-guides/144426-how-install-os-x-yosemite-using-clover.html)
      both times I can get to just past the clover boot screen and it freezes after that.
      I have verbose (-v) selected in boot options: On the non-UEFI install then it hangs on:
      "Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key>...."
       
      I have had a lot of issues with trying to get the installer working and many different things that had to be disabled but now it just gets to here and stops. Some times it will glitch out on this screen and give me a the circle with the line through it and text garbage around it where the text in the pictures are.
       
      Need help please.
       
      This is the laptop im using the specs are the same nothing has changed.

      TLDR: I've gotten myself up a creek without even a working keyboard and mouse. 
       
      My setup
       
      Asus X99 Deluxe motherboard
      Dual Asus Radeon R9 280x GPU's
      i7 5930K CPU
      G.Skill - Ripjaws Series 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
      Highpoint 2721 RAID controller + 4 hard drives
      EVO 850 Pro SSD
      Mojave 10.14.4
      Profile: MacPro6,1
       
      I had installed Mojave and had set it up to boot directly into my user account with no need for a password. Both Clover and IORegistryExplorer were set as log-in items. This was because I was working on activating my SS ports. The X99 Deluxe USB ports are set up as follows:
       
      USB3_E1 to USB3_E10 at the rear (Asmedia controller)
      USB_13 & USB_14 at the rear (Intel)
      USB1112 & USB1314 (headers on the motherboard)
      USB3_12 & USB3_34 (front)
       
      This adds up to potentially 34 ports, far more than I need. I had three patches enabled to remove the 15 port limit but they weren't doing the trick. So I disabled the ten USB3 ports on the rear that are subject to the Asmedia controller in BIOS. I also disabled the Asmedia USB3 controller. All I really need are the four USB3 ports on the front panel, along with one of the motherboard USB2 headers. This should have gotten me down to under 15 ports. One SS port appeared in IORegistryExplorer but I couldn't locate it when I tested every active port.
       
      I'm not sure what I did but everything went sideways. I found that I was booting into Mojave, Clover and IORegistryExplorer were launching but the mouse cursor was frozen in the corner and the keyboard was dead. Moving the keyboard and mouse to different ports didn't help. Meanwhile the OS was giving me a message about looking for a BT keyboard which I don't have. 
       
      I've tried the following to no avail:
       
      -- reinstalling Mojave
      -- various combinations of USBInjectAll.kext, XHCI-X99-injector.kext, X99_Injector USB 3.kext, and GenericUSBXHCI.kext
      -- resetting the CMOS
      -- enabling and disabling the ten Asmedia USB3 ports on the rear
      -- enabling and disabling the port limit patches below:
       

       

       
      I haven't reflashed my BIOS which is something I do when starting from scratch, although I don't see why it would matter. I'm open to that, burning incense, whatever will help.  In the end, I need at least 1-2 working USB3 ports. But right now, I just need to get my keyboard and mouse working again. I've been going in circles on this all day and could really use some good ideas.
       
      Thanks so much.
