What doesn’t work
Sleep Wake — I have no idea how to fix it as it is required DSDT patch I guess.
---> Realtek I2S Audio (PG0.35 for DELL)
In DSDT entries is HDAUDIO\\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0282&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_1000\ Which indicates ALC282
Audio ALC3263 (As it shown in BIOS) - Broadwell rt286 - Card1/Codec#0 (Utilised in I2S Mode) there is nowhere in BIOS to change to HDA mode). Drop OEM HDA and Fix HDA don’t do anything, still show 3 HDMI Audio outputs. If there is a DSDT patch to force HDA Audio mode, Please do enlighten me.
As a result Internal Speaker, Internal Mic, and Headphone Jack doesn’t work.
Touchpad on Travel Keyboard Dell K12a001 (Should work with DSDT Patch with pin configuration) I have no idea how.
Obviously, Intel Wireless 7265 AC. For experimental purpose. https://github.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh/issues/330 — Knock yourself out. I managed to get it work for awhile but the real problem is kernel panic so I gave up. Ordering compatible card instead.
Config.plist got it from Rehabman laptop config.
BIOS version A20
- Legacy Boot Rom
- Secure Boot
- TPM 2.0
SMBIOS - I use MacBook8,1. —- MacBookAir7,1-7,2 (Min Freq is at 1.2 GHz) MacBookPro12,1 Min Freq is at 800 Mhz and it is the default this cpu should be. Again, there is a way to set it right somewhere in this forum.
-->> DSDT Windows 8 patch
System sees only one I2C Controller which control Touch Screen.
Touch Screen registers as Magic Trackpad 2.
Pen as Mouse
-->> DSDT Windows 8.1 Patch
System sees two I2C Controllers which control Touch Screen and Accelerometer.
Touch Screen registers as Magic Trackpad 2.
Pen as Mouse
OOO>>> With Windows 8.1 patch which it should run with this one because it can see more of HID devices and controllers.
Problem is Accelerometer (SHUB).
Device can automatically rotate screen as it should be BUT it flips the screen wildly even with slightly movement. It stops only when device stays completely still. Eventually it breaks internal screen graphic. It becomes grabble. I restored internal screen graphic by connecting it to external monitor and set rotation of external screen to 0 degree. Then it is back to normal. (I guess it conflict with rotation setting) I disable SHUB in DSDT.
During Installation process Full Graphic acceleration can be activated straight away by Lilu and Whatevergreen.
AppStore, iMessage and, FaceTime activate by NullEthernet and SSDT by Rehabman
USBInjectAll needed for keyboard and other usb peripherals. Use other tool to keep certain ports active as Rehabman mention this KEXT is not good for a long run.
Please do Correct me if I did something worng. Or any suggestions to make this thing runs better.
I have just re-made the Catalina installer, with the updated OS. It could not install from it, like it could not copy. Then I have tried to reinstall Mojave, it worked pretty cleary last year the exact pen drive. It failed as well, saying something like: not package found, contact the system administrator. I was able to boot from USB pen drive Linux and install Windows from DVD. But no macOS from the pen drive, even from what worked fine before. I have reseted the BIOS several times, no succes. The first sign of something wrong was this: When I first tried to boot Catalina, it said something about BIOS (BIOS, not UEFI) reset and enter setup. I hapenned several times on my attempts. If something screwed in my hardware? The USB ports? The BIOS perhaps?
I have a strange issue with my MacBook air (guess it's software, and I used the premium version of Avast to check any viruses). Some of the keyboard lettering doesn't work. I mean not the keyboard keys but really the letters. For example : when i Push the A on an azerty keyboard it doesn't work. But if I switch to Qwerty it's still the A who doesn't work. The keys working perfectly fine.
If I plug an USB keyboard this one works absolutely fine.
Also, when I click only the alternative click is working. With the trackpad or a bluetooth mouse.
But here is the strangest thing of all :
If I go to accessibility -> keyboard -> and click on enable sticky keys everything works perfectly fine : the click and the keyboard but not for a long time (actually it changes, sometimes it works for hours and some other for minutes)
To be totally exhaustive : When I tried to access my session I needed to type the password. But I needed the "a" which wasn't working (with the USB keyboard and the other). I went to the recovery system. There, the USB keyboard was working fine so I changed the password to use usable characters. But...The password wasn't changed.
So I used a bootable version of Catalina on a USB drive. The problem with the trackpad and the keyboard remained, but the UBS keyboard was working fine. And, this time the password asked to access the contents of the other users...was the one I changed and not the original one.
I erased the integrated drive, and re-installed the OS. But the issue remains.
I guess I need to go deeper in the system but i don't know how.
The MacBook has an other issue for a long time. When I close it, it doesn't go on standby. And now, even after going in standby he wakes up 2 minutes after.

I just installed. Everything works fine. I'll test final cut pro, premiere pro with 4k footage and get back with you on performance.
For now moves like a performant Mac book pro.
I installed Catalina first but I could not make the Intel UHD 620 Graphics get proper QE/CI.
Mojave is just fine. I want to use this system for quick video editing on the go.
Geekbench in my signature.
