Hey zacmks,

I have the Aero 15x 4k, i7-8750H, Nvidia GTX 1070, 512GB Toshiba.

Thanks to your post, I got motivated to try Hackintosh my Aero 15x.

After working on it for two weeks on it, I am pretty happy with it.

Everything works fine: Sleep/Restart/Shutdown, WLAN, BT, Sound, Touchpad, CPU PM.

The only thing I can't get better is my battery runtime. No matter what I try, I can't get it over 4-5h.

First I tried to get everything work. Then I tried optimising my CPU PM. Seems to work pretty good. On Idle I have something around 1.3-1.7W. While browsing or writing this text in Safari I am at 2.1W Package Power.

I also replaced my m2 NVME with a 1TB Crucial SATA SSD I had laying around.

Yesterday I also tried removing all internal SSDs and installed Mojave on external 3.5" HDD with its own power source.

Didn't affect the battery runtime.

Brightness is reduced as well (60-70%). Bluetooth is turned off. Tried also shutting down all programs. Normally I only have iStat Running.

But no matter what I do, don't get over 4-5h. On Windows 10 I had battery runtimes around 8h.

How is your battery runtime and do you have some tips for me?

Attached is my EFI. Running on Mojave 10.14.5.
I am pretty happy with it. I am also in contact with Headkaze, the founder of Hackintool. He has the same laptop as me.

Best,
Chris

Download Mojave from the Mac App Store on a 2012 or newer iMac or Mac mini running Mountain Lion or newer versions of macOS. A Mac Pro should be 2010 or newer and the eligible MacBooks that can be seen below should be 2012/2015 or newer models. A hackintosh must also be running Mountain Lion or newer and use one of the following minimum system definitions or newer. Then the CustoMac will appear as Mojave eligible at the Mac App Store.

If you have created your unique serial numbers with Clover Configurator you can sign in to the App store and update. It's perfectly safe.

Hello all, sorry that I’ve been absent for a quite while.

I’ve been very, very busy with work so I haven’t had time to give updates either here or on the repo.

But I do plan to give some updates as soon as I get some time here (soon). It will include some Mojave updates with issues in general. And updates on things that got better in regards of this guide.
Will try to answer as much as possible the questions here as well.

Best wishes
