NOTICE: The official AppleALC now contains layout-id 72. There's no more need to download the AppleALC.kext.zip file from this post.
After several weeks of toiling (it's July already?!), here's a new audio solution for perfect working audio. I basically ported the linux driver and created a GUI popup menu to configure the combo jack (see screenshot).
Fully working Combo Jack! (Heaphones, headset, AND line-in!)
New verb sending kext (no more need for CodecCommander on systems without EAPD troubles; VerbStub is simply a direct port of hda-verb for Linux)
Launchdaemon with Windows-like pop-up menu monitors the jack for insertion
Automatic OMTP (Nokia)/CTIA (iPhone) detection for headsets!
Fully commented sources
Line-in mode disables audio output. I haven't been able to re-enable the speakers when the jack is purely an input, but that's the only "issue"
Zero "no audio after sleep" issues so far
Make sure to turn off "Use ambient noise reduction" when using an input that isn't the internal Mic (unless you find that it helps)
How does it work?
Simple! Due to the way the Realtek codec is set up on this machine, the ComboJack program watches the jack and switches the codec selector (node 0x22) to the correct input after applying all the requisite processing coefficients and pin widgets. This means that Mac OS only sees a built-in mic, but behind the scenes it actually is connecting to the headset and line-in ports. This works because all input paths lead through selector node 0x22 and into capture node 0x09, and the OS only acknowledges the capture node.
How to install (uses modded AppleALC):
Disable SIP (I use 0x67 for CSRActiveConfig and 0xEE for booterconfig) Remove ALCPlugFix from /usr/bin (may need to kill with Activity Monitor first) Remove good.win.ALCPlugFix.plist from /Library/LaunchAgents (may need to launchctl unload first) Remove CodecCommander from Clover/kexts/Other (unless you need it, but it looks like the 9560 doesn't) Copy VerbStub.kext to EFI/Clover/kexts/Other Copy AppleALC** to EFI/Clover/kexts/Other Change layout-id to 72 (in SSDT-Config -- 0x48 is hex) Run install.sh and read what it says Reboot (and enable SIP if you want)!
Download "ComboJack Installer.zip" and "AppleALC.kext.zip" for everything. The other zips are sources.
(Also included in "ComboJack Installer" is a folder containing the platform, layout, and pinconfigs used.)
**AppleALC now includes this layout (layout-id 72) in the official release.

If you have a working Brightness Slider and you might be using Brightness slider or manual hotkeys to control brightness then this guide may help you to use your Native hotkeys of laptop.
(All the Credits goes to @RehabMan For OS-X-ACPI-Debug Kext and DSDT Patches.)
This step assumes that you are using RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller or Acidanthera's PS2Controller
Install the kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Debug
Open MaciASL and click on patch.(Add rehab man repo)
Apply "Add DSDT Debug Methods" and "Instrument EC Queries" that are under Brightness Fix.
Save the DSDT and restart
Look in Syslog as you press the key corresponding to brightness to determine which _QXX methods handle the keys
(UPDATE: From Sierra Apple changed logging process. So you won't find ACPIdebug result using syslog command. Instead use following command )
log show --last 5 | grep ACPIDebug
6. Then patch DSDT:
into method label _Q1D replace_content
// Brightness Down\n
into method label _Q1C replace_content
// Brightness Up\n
Change the variable _Q1D/_Q1C as per the log.
7. Try compiling and check if it generates errors 8. If it does, then change the PS2M to PS2X according to the one found in your DSDT 9. Save and place the compiled DSDT. 10. Now you should see that you have your corresponding keys to change your brightness

Greetings from Brazil! I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.2 on my Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK laptop. Everything works smoothly, except decent battery management, so I decided to rebuild my DSDT from scratch, so I can patch it properly. It was a bit messy to start with.
I followed Rehabman's guide (to the letter) posted on tonymacx86. However, I keep getting a compile error, no warnings at all, just 'syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_ARG1'. Please refer to attached PNG image and .dsl file.
I've searched endlessly for a solution, but can't fix it no matter what I try. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? I really appreciate your time and help.
I’m running macOS Catalina 10.15.2 on my Lenovo Ideapad 300-15isk laptop. Everything works, except HDMI audio. I can’t get it right no matter what I try, and I’ve tried every guide I’ve found. I was able to patch AppleHDA.kext and sound is working great, but still no HDMI audio in the sound properties window, only 'internal speaker out'. Here are my specs:
Lenovo Ideapad 300-15isk 80RS Intel core i5 6200U @ 2.40 GHz Intel HD 520 Graphics 16GB of DDR3L RAM @ 1600Mhz 480GB SSD as primary boot and system drive 1TB SATAIII HD as secondary. Backup drive Dual boot (macOS Catalina 10.15.2 and Windows 10 Pro)
Please refer to attached .docx file containing a picture of DPCIManager window and picture of Kexts installed in EFI-EFI-CLOVER-Kexts-Other. Also, in case you wish to look at it, I am posting the link to my RunMe files. Thanks a lot for your time and help!
Hello a few days ago I installed a wireless card to get wifi called: Broadcom DW1820A model: 94350ZAE. Could someone help me to modify my efi folder to let the card work correctly? When I switch on the laptop everything is running ok in verbose mode but when later it appears the Apple logo to finally load everything all the computer get stucked so I can’t do anything (there is only the apple logo and a bar), the only way to use my laptop is disabling the wifi card from bios or using the boot arg: brcmfx_driver=1, and I don’t know why it happens this.
I tried to follow/use some guides but I can’t fix it, so I need help from a professional of Hackintoshes…
My laptop is a DELL vostro 5568 8 gb ram, i5 7200 2,4GHz, intel hd graphics 620 and the ssd 250gb.
Here you can download my efi folder and a IOreg file of my computer
If you need more information etc tell me.
I only can upload 10mb and my efi folder is 25mb so I'll upload the most important files.
