    HP Spectre X360 (15" 2017) - I2C Touchscreen and Pen Working in OSX

    I've tested the new version with my pen. It still works.

    HP Spectre X360 (15" 2017) - I2C Touchscreen and Pen Working in OSX

    Nice! Just installed myself. Man, being able to use two-finger gestures again makes such a difference.

    HP Spectre X360 (15" 2017) - I2C Touchscreen and Pen Working in OSX

    This looks interesting! I'll try messing around with it soon. Was curious about the status of VoodooI2C as it didn't seem like there had been a release in a while.

    HP Spectre x360 w/ i7-8550U... Compatible?

    No problem—I've done a bit of research on this. It's a bit disappointing that HP is moving toward soldering these components, but as far as I can tell, it seems to be in the service of improving the thermals, which makes sense as the machine tends to get a little toasty. The board on the gem-cut...

    HP Spectre x360 w/ i7-8550U... Compatible?

    That's correct; the Coffee Lake version of the 13 inch x360 has a soldered WiFi card. The 15 inch version of this specific generation of the laptop still has removable WiFi card, but neither size of the recent gem-cut version has an upgradable WiFi card. So your best bet if you want to run with...

    Success - HP Spectre X360

    Heads up that I was noticing corruption on my APFS-formatted drive—it wasn't completing Disk Utility runs and I would see occasional freezes during daily use—so I did a Carbon Copy and moved back to HFS+. Saw an increase of about an hour and a half in battery life. If you let it move to APFS...

    Success - HP Spectre X360

    Mixing up KextsToPatch and KernelToPatch is easy though. I think as long as you remove the added code from KernelToPatch, you should be OK. I might recommend looking at RehabMan's starter config.plist file for your device and compare it to what you currently have to ensure something didn't get...

    Success - HP Spectre X360

    I would recommend leaving FakeSMC in /L/E. Seems like what happened here is that your removal of that kext made some other kext you already installed in /L/E stop working. That's no good, obviously. I'm not sure which kext that was off the bat (you might have to dig into your notes), but I think...

    Success - HP Spectre X360

    Have you installed VoodooI2C properly? Admittedly, there will be limits to what the trackpad can do in comparison to a real Mac. I would recommend getting a tool like BetterTouchTool to help with its functionality. You won't replace everything but you might be able to replace some of the more...

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    Update on the sound: I stumbled upon an ALCPlugFix specifically for ALC 295, which appears to have made all four speakers start firing properly. (I've only had the bottom two firing for the longest time.) Headphones work, but internal mic doesn't. However, the better audio quality is noticeable...

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    Also, if you're on High Sierra rather than Mojave, you should look into going back to the pre-Mojave versions of VoodooI2C, as the scroll function only works with three fingers on the latest version, rather than two fingers on the older version—an issue that's due to the pen support. There...

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    Is it still showing the same error in verbose mode—or is it something else? Are the brightness controls working, by chance? If you've made any recent changes to your EFI folder kexts/Config.plist, might be worth sending along. I will say that this is not how my machine usually handles things...

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    That's a good question—one I don't know the answer to, sadly. I'd ask for help in the thread. (FWIW, I just tried my pen, which I rarely use, and it worked.) I know I've had my ins and outs on that.

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    Just compared my config.plist to yours. One other thing I saw that may play a factor here: Both IntelGFX and ig-platform-id are currently commented out; remove the hashtags from in front of each.

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    Well, looks like we confirmed the issue, at least. Just double-checking things—that advice I gave you is slightly out of date, as IntelGraphicsFixup is now part of WhateverGreen. You need to put WhateverGreen.kext in your /Clover/Kexts/Other folder on your EFI. (Once you get it installed, you...

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    Though I can't be sure because your problem reporting files aren't attached (see: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/), this sounds similar to a problem I had when first installing. If you boot from Clover in verbose mode (hit the space bar on your...

    Success - HP Spectre X360

    Currently testing NoTouchId kext with this, as I'm finding the most recent version of 1Password is extremely sluggish/unusable due to constant polling of BiometricKit—which is a problem as the Spectre of course doesn't have a fingerprint sensor on most of its models. (Part of this might be a...

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    I didn't have an issues, it works as is laid out in the guide. One thing I'll say is that the touchscreen works on this device without having to dive into GPIO changes, so it's significantly less painful than with other devices—and will help you avoid the headaches mentioned. Jaymonkey's guide...

    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    I'm really sorry to hear that. General rule of thumb for most HP Spectre x360 models is that the 13-inch models have everything soldered on minus (I believe) the SSD; the 15-inch models are generally upgradeable. (This seems worth mentioning, @ctxdl.) If you would like to still go forward with...
