  • 1.Use the Clover EFI Mojave Installer to install Mac OS Majave(10.14.6)
  • 2.Boot into the system and replace the "EFI" Folder on you System Boot Disk EFI partition
  • 3.Install all the kext contained in the Kext "other" folder into your /Library/Extensions, rebuild kextcache and reboot
  • ACPI Patched: DSDT, SSDT-DDGPU, SSDT-PNLF/PNLFCFL, SSDT-UIAC, SSDT-XHC, SSDT-XOSI
    UEFI Drivers are used: ApfsDriverLoader, OsxAptioFix3Drv(clover 5108 stock,work fine), DataHubDxe, EmuVariableUefi, 
      	FSinject, HFSPlus or VBoxHFS, NvmExpressDxe, PartitionDxe, SMCHelper.
    Kexts are used: ACPIBatteryManager, AirportBrcmFixup, AppleALC, BrcmFirmwareRepo, BrcmPatchRAM2, 
      	BT4LEContiunityFixup, FakeSMC, Lilu, NoTouchID, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll, 
      	VoodooPS2Controller, WhateverGreen, XHCI-unsupported.
    

Clover Config

  • Acpi: AutoMerge, DSDT Patches(_OSI to XOSI, HECI to IMEI,GFX0 to IGPU, HDAS to HDEF,no need to rename EHC* as Chipsets post Skylake removed USB2.0 native support), SSDT PluginType checked
  • Boot Args: dart=0 -igfxnohdmi darkwake=0 -v -lilubetaall keepsyms=1 -wegbeta
  • Kernel Patches: Kernel LAPIC, KernelPM and AppleRTC enabled
  • SMBIOS: MacBookPro15,2
  • SystemParameters: InjectKexts Detect, InjectSystemID YES.

DSDT Patch (only two static patches needed )

Sleep and wake

Use "USB _PRW 0x6D (instant wake)" patches for Skylake(and later). This patch will add 
	Method(_PRW) { Return(Package() { 0x6D, 0 }) } to relevant Devices.
There may be missing a "}" after applying the patch, which cause compile syntax error. 
	Search for Method(_PRW) and find out the syntax error. If there is still wake problems 
	(“wake reason” :XDCI CNVW XHC etc.), use Log Show to find the wake reason and search the
	specific Device (XDCI or CNVW) to see if Method(_PRW) is missing in the specific device.

Brightness adjustment keys

working by modifying /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/DSDT.aml
 Scope (_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC0) {
 ...
 Method (_Q11, 0, NotSerialized)  // _Qxx: EC Query
 {
     Notify (PS2K, 0x0405) // Brightness down
 }
 Method (_Q12, 0, NotSerialized)  // _Qxx: EC Query
 {
     Notify (PS2K, 0x0406) // Brightness up
 }
 ...
 }

Hot Patches -

 1.Disable NV GPU: SSDT-DDGPU
 2.Backlight Control: SSDT-PNLF/PNLFCFL
 3.Removing unused USB ports: SSDT-UIAC
 4.inject properties for XHCI: SSDT-XHC
 5.XOSI simulation to "Windows 10": SSDT-XOSI

USB

Actual Port Information:

  Port		       Type	            Description
  HS01/SS01  USB 3.0 Type A	    Front--Left side

  HS03	     USB 2.0	          Rear--Left Side
  HS07	     Proprietary	      Webcam
  HS14	     Proprietary	      Bluetooth

  Use above information to make specific Hotpatch SSDT-UIAC.aml(based on SSDT-UIAC-ALL).     

Audio

  Realtek ALC255: Use AppleALC.kext, Clover Audio injection =3

HDMI

  USE the latest Hacktool to creat a patch,the below section should be take care:      
  
  framebuffer-con1-busid                        01000000(the only work-out id) 
  framebuffer-con1-enable                       01000000
  framebuffer-con1-flags                        87010000
  framebuffer-con1-has-lspcon                   01000000
  framebuffer-con1-index                        01000000
  framebuffer-con1-pipe                         12000000
  framebuffer-con1-preferred-lspcon-mode        01000000
  framebuffer-con1-type                         00080000(used as a HDMI identifier),
  framebuffer-patch-enable                      01000000

  As the MacbookPro 15,2 do not have HDMI port actually, the check of the board-id should be ignored by 
  using the WhateverGreen boot-arg agdpmod=vit9696.please check the details in my updated config.plist.
  Kindly note that the kext of WhateverGreen, Lilu and AppleALC should be updated to the latest version.
