[...] you should remove [...] DSDT Edits ...
On my HM67 mainboard the IRQ Fix (FixTMR, FixRTC, FixIPIC & FixHPET) is still needed for AppleALC to work.
AirportBrcmFixup

If necessary, you can over-ride the default MacOS WiFi local and explicitly set the country code for your WiFi device using the boot argument brcmfx-country=XX, this is sometimes necessary to get 5Ghz WiFi working at full speed with your router.
Not setting this option results in US by default.

Always had it set to my location (brcmfx-country=DE), but still had slow rates at ~25 kbit/s. I just discovered minutes ago that setting brcmfx-country=#a solves this (>200 kbit/s now).

Does anybody know how to set this option via AddProperties/Arbitrary?!

As it states in the guide brcmfx-country is a boot argument not a device property.

Updated post #12.

I can confirm this for for my DW1550 (Broadcom BCM94352HMB). In addition, after disabling ACPI->DSDT->Fixes->FixAirport and Devices->FakeID->WIFI the card is now marked as built-in.

Faced a few problems when download big files. They were useless due to corrupted files. Re-enabling ACPI->DSDT->Fixes->FixAirport fixed the problem. Therefore, the fix seems to be still needed.

@Henties,

You could try asking the WEG Devs for confirmation on the WEG official support thread :-

https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/325987-whatevergreen-support-topic/

Would be interesting to know what they say so i can update the guide if necessary.

Cheers

I have finally got this reply from @scj312 in the other "universe" concerning the validity of the shikigva=xx bootflag.

"You can still use shikigva boot args with WhateverGreen exactly the same as you could before. On my system I don't need to use the boot arg."

The fact that the old shikigva boot flags are not listed, although seemingly still usable' makes me view the "merged" Whatevergreen.kext with suspicion. It still seems only to be a half baked egg. I am not presently using the shikigva=xx flag and have so far not been able to detect anything untoward with my Skylake build as is evident from the attached screenshot depicting a continuous 70 hour uptime and sleep behavior that is consistent with the usage pattern spanning that period. I am happy and will therefore leave my configuration as is. As the saying goes. If it ain't broken don't fix it, no sorry that is wrong, it should actually read, If it ain't broken break it :) of cause only if one is stupid enough :)
Greetings
Henties

@Henties,

Thanks for update ....

The boot flags are still listed in the "Manual" sub folder on WhatEverGreen's Git-Hub page, however these are essentially the old readme.md files from each of the merged plug-in's. As I previously mentioned in the case of shikigva I believe thats it's enabled by default if applicable to the IGPU as there is no real reason not use it, I suspect that the boot flag is still left in there just incase a user needs to over-ride the defaults, I suspect the same is true for the other merged plug-in's in that commonly used options are enabled as default hence the reason WhatEverGreen works so well with minimal configuration on many systems.

Thanks for your explanation, now this all makes more sense to me.
