Notes:

  • Original Intel WiFi/Bluetooth was replaced with a macOS compatible one. (Used here: Broadcom BCM94352Z. But the Dell DW1830 should work better if you are dual-booting with Windows)
  • Intel WiFi/Bluetooth card can be made usable with itlwm project
  • EFI based

How to use this repository:

OpenCore

/EFI/ has a general config for OpenCore. Consider the current supported macOS version of this repository

  • EFI/OC: All necessary OpenCore files (with kexts, configs, patches, etc.)
  • EFI/Boot: Has other necessary boot files

Clover is not supported

Working

USB Based Devices

  • All USB ports (2.0 + 3.0)
  • Card Reader (3.0)
  • HD Camera (2.0)
  • Keyboard (2.0)
  • Bluetooth (Internal 2.0)

Network

  • Ethernet card
  • WiFi + Bluetooth

Power

  • CPU power management
  • Battery indicator
  • USB PM
  • Shutdown/*Sleep/Restart
  • Ambient Light Sensor & Saving/Restoring screen brightness on reboot
  • **Disable eGPU to save power

* For Sleep to work, add -wegnoegpu to your boot-args (Mojave/Catalina+). However, this makes USB-C external monitors undetectable after boot

** Prefer to use SSDT-Disable-DGPU.aml patch to save power, as it ACPI disables the eGPU. This also makes USB-C external monitors undetectable after boot

-wegnoegpu can be used in conjunction with SSDT-Disable-DGPU.aml

  • Intel graphics card
  • HDMI (High Sierra only with Nvidia GC)

Misc

  • Sound (internal speakers + mic jack on/off)
