Tutorial

Kevin Shroff brought us awsome Full Installation Guide.See it firstly and you should kown as below before installation:

Configuration Plist

config_install.plist

This is used for installation phase, the purpose is to inject a incorrect ig-platform-id = 0x12345678, and disable graphic card, so that the system can enter desktop after complete installation.

config.plist

This file is used for XPS 9570 8750H 4K model. The following sub-item injects the correct graphic platform and enables graphic acceleration.

  • Devices/Properties/PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)
    • framebuffer-portcount = <04000000>
    • framebuffer-con1-enable = <01000000>
    • framebuffer-con1-alldata = <01050900 00040000 87010000>
    • framebuffer-con2-enable = <01000000>
    • framebuffer-con2-alldata = <02060900 00040000 87010000>
    • framebuffer-con3-enable = <01000000>
    • framebuffer-con3-alldata = <03040a00 00080000 87010000>
    • enable-hdmi20 = <01000000>
    • enable-lspcon-support = <01000000>
    • framebuffer-con3-has-lspcon = <01000000>
    • framebuffer-con3-preferred-lspcon-mode = <01000000>

It's different from config_install.plist is that the correct ig-platform-id = 0x3e9b0000 is injected into our system.One the other hand,the maximum link rate of the XPS 9570 8750H 4K model is fixed by the following field:

dpcd-max-link-rate = <14000000>

config_1080P.plist

This file is used for XPS 9570 8750H 1080P model.The difference from config.plist is only that:

dpcd-max-link-rate = <0A000000>

Installation

1. Replace EFI of installation volume

Delete the clover folder from original EFI partition and replace it with the Clover folder of this repository.

2. Complete Installation

Use config_install.plist to enter installation UI and complete the installation; if there are installation failure problems, try multiple times to enter the installation UI.(3~5 times)

3. Rebuild kext cache

Run sudo kextcache -i / command in terminal to rebuild kext cache after entering desktop.

4. Use config.plist(for 4k)

If your model is 4K, use config.plist to enter desktop directly.Otherwise,use config_1080P.plist instead.

5. Install some drivers into L/E or S/L/E (optional)

It is recommended to only keep VirtualSmc.kext/FakeSMC.kext in CLOVE/kexts/Other, install the rest of kexts into L/E or S/L/E. Delete all kexts in CLOVER/kexts/other which already are installed.Finally, rebuild kext cache again and restart your computer.

Upgrade

Switch back config_install.plist to complete upgrade, run sudo kextcache -i / to rebuild kext cache immediately after entering destop.
