    No QE and backlight control with WhateverGreen 1.2.5

    So, updating WhateverGreen.kext from 1.2.4 to 1.2.5 broke my QE acceleration and backlight control on 10.11.6. It works just fine on 10.12.6. Downgrading to 1.2.4 brings QE back. Any ideas?

    AiportBrcmFixup vs BroadcomWiFiInjector vs FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi kexts

    Can someone explain the differences between these three? I know that AirportBrcmFixup.kext provides patches for 5ghz, country code etc., but I don't know which one is the best to use. In 10.11.6, AirportBrcmFixup.kext works but the wifi card (BCM94352Z) is detected as "Third-party Wireless...

    Laptop reboots at wake from sleep.

    Hi. I have a problem with sleep. If I select Apple menu -> Sleep, the laptop sleeps fine but when I try to wake it up, it reboots instead of resuming. Anything obviously wrong with my setup? I fixed the instant wake issue by patching the DSDT with usb_prw_0x6d_xhc.txt. Also, there is a long...

    24-bit screen color depth

    Hi guys. As you probably already know, High Sierra has changed the 32-bit color depth to 24-bit. It really annoys me because the picture/color quality is worse than previous versions of macOS and it's the only reason I haven't updated to HS. So, is there a patch/hack to change it to 32-bit?
