  • 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

#Please find above files in the link:

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

Realtek ALC255: Use AppleALC.kext, Clover Audio inject =3
# /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGFXHDA.kext must be removed (ID matched but not actually compatible)

As this is a optimus configuration Laptop, the NVIDIA Card will never work. No PR files attached.
