Cool! Can't wait for that!

P.S. How the hell do I extract rom/bios file out of A07.exe bios update from Dell website?

AFAIK, you can't. You need to use a tool called UniversalBiosBackupToolkit or something along those lines. That's what I did anyways.

I figured it by JUST putting that efi shell on my fat32 usb drive and then booting it to run the commands. Didn't actually need any bios files :confused:

I now need to figure out how to enable touchpad gestures, how to make touchpad more fluid, how to make animations (eg opening launchpad/application menu) more fluid, and how to enable brightness regulator and touchscreen. If anybody could give some tips for this I'd really appreciate it.

Thank You!

And I heard the more detailed guide is for sure in process of being done.

You need to enable full intel graphics by

Patching your IOkit:


git

mkdir ~/Projects

cd ~/Projects

git clone https://github.com/RehabMan/Lenovo-Y50-DSDT-Patch y50.git

cd ~/Projects/y50.git

curl -o XPS9530.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/the-darkvoid/XPS9530-OSX/master/XPS9530.sh

chmod +x XPS9530.sh

./XPS9530.sh --patch-iokit

And then setting intel inject = true in the config.plist


And reboot

This should fix animations problems and make the system smoother.

For the Touch features and audio you need to extract and Patch the DSDT

You do not need the y50 project to patch iokit.

This will work:
Code:
cd ~/Downloads
curl -o XPS9530.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/the-darkvoid/XPS9530-OSX/master/XPS9530.sh
chmod +x XPS9530.sh
./XPS9530.sh --patch-iokit

Thank you for reply, I've already done exactly that, and enabled intel graphics, animation improved but it's still a bit choppy.



adele.xps13,

I didn't do any DSDT patching yet, but my audio works just fine after installing all the kexts from the youtube video description posted on the last page. I'll try doing patching later. Is there a way to do a backup of my current state, just so I wouldn't mess everything up by trying to patch DSDT to the point where I have to reinstall everything all over again?

Also, do you by any chance know how to get brightness control to work?

Thank You!! You guys rock!

I set 0x183 and 0x184 to 0x3 and I double checked that it was set to that, I think thats 96MB?

I've also attached the ioreg below. Thank You!

edit. I could also make a short video demonstrating the problem if needed

CPU Power management is not implemented.
Also IGPU PM is not implemented.

Both could seriously impact performance.
