USB Configuration -> XHCI Pre-Boot Mode Smart Auto / Enabled
SATA Mode AHCI
Boot -> Launch CSM Enabled (For Reducing boot graphics glitch)

What's Working?

  • QE/CI Intel HD Graphics 5500 with VRAM 3,5 GB (3584 MB), Nvidia Geforce 930M (Disable)
  • Audio Conexant CX20751/2 with layout-id 21 + Internal Microphone (SSDT-CX207512.aml + Lilu.kext + AppleALC.kext)
  • Display brightness PNLF and Fn Keys (DSDT Patch Fix Graphics Broadwell from RehabMan Repo + ASUS DSDT Patches Brightness FN Key + AsusSMC.kext)
  • Qualcomm Atheros AR9565 Wifi (ATH9KFixup.kext + ATH9KInjector.kext + Lilu.kext)
  • LAN Ethernet Realtek RTL8111GU/8168GU/8411GU (RealtekRTL8111.kext)
  • FocalTech TouchPad PS/2 (ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext)
  • Battery Indicator (DSDT RehabMan Battery Laptop Patch for ASUS + SMCBatteryManager.kext)
  • WebCam for Facetime HD Camera Built-In (CustomPeripheral.kext)
  • USB3.0 Port + Power/Speed (Rename XHCI to XHC in config.plist + SSDT-EC-UIAC.aml + USBInjectAll.kext + Remove Port Limit Kext to Patches in config.plist)
  • Native Power Management CPU (SSDT.aml combine from ssdtPRGen.sh Pike R. Alpha and ssdt_data PMheart + CPUFriend.kext + CPUFriendDataProvider.kext)
  • Apple Graphics Power Management (AGPM) edit Info.plist VirtualSMC.kext for Macbook Pro 12,1
  • Etc..

Not Working?

  • Nvidia Geforce 930M (Optimus Tech) not supported by hackintosh
  • AirDrop, Handoff, Continuity, Because this chipset and module not supported
  • Bluetooth Atheros AR3012 v4.0 Controller, ID Vendor 0x13D3 (5075), ID Product 0x3423 (13347), Because no Firmware Key or Kext for this Chipset, Alternatively must be Load to Windows for Pairing or use Sleep and Wake Method with BTFirmwareUploader.kext (Edited Info.plist)
  • Etc..

Not Tested?

  • HDMI
  • Etc..

Notes

  1. OC Folder still under development, because version 0.6.0 DSDT not included anymore, maybe many not works/issues for laptop such as ADBG, AC0/ADP1, Log Battery issues, and other
  2. Don't use my patch DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml if you have different ACPI Tables/BIOS Version and Model/Freq CPU PM
  3. To get match on/off my BT, edit Info.plist (BTFirmwareUploader.kext + BluetoothDevQAtherosInjector.kext + BluetoothDevBroadcomInjector.kext) then add for Product ID (3423) and Vendor ID (13D3), and install to /Library/Extensions But need Sleep and WakeUp for load firmware bluetooth, or use another method, follow this tutorial, not for Catalina

macOS Mojave

  1. For Wifi Atheros AR9565 need boot args "-ath9565" to load ATH9KFixup.kext + ATH9KInjector.kext in /Library/Extensions
  2. "XX-MASKED-XX" in My config.plist just cosmetics, You need regenerate of them or find another serial number for your mac, Use Clover Configurator
  3. And many more apps
