Troubleshooting :

 1.No Audio after installation : basically this happens due to CloverHDA is not loaded or LayoutID is not used either via DSDT(HDEF Patch) or Clover (config.plist) , also make sure that VoodooHDA or AppleALC is not installed.
 2.Headphone/Microphone is not working : you have to use Codec_commander , if still issue exist you need to make custom profil for Codec_commander so it can work with your codec.
 3.No Audio after Sleep : use EAPDFix or Codec_Commander , customize its info.plist as per your requirements.
 4.Device show but no Audio : Some laptops requires to use FakePCIID , use always latest version of FakePCIID from rehabman.
 5.if still not geting sound devices then : please report with Requested files ,

Note : for KabyLake System , use FakePCIID + HDMI kext from below link


Note : Recommended to Use EasyKexPro for installation , Repair Permission and Rebuild Caches.
