This guide will provide you basic instruction to install macOS High Sierra/Mojave on your Asus Zenbook laptop.

This build uses @RehabMan's hot patch technique.

Supported models:
- UX310 (KabyLake)
- UX330 (KabyLake) (not tested)
- UX330 (KabyLake-R)
- UX410 (KabyLake)
- UX430 (KabyLake)
- UX430 (KabyLake-R)
To add support for your laptop, please provide full specs and original ACPI files from Clover, and AIDA64 reports if possible. Recent models are preferred.

What's working now:
- Trackpad has some minor bugs (random cursor jumping, etc.), but gestures are great
- Wifi/Bluetooth: replace with DW1560. Stock Intel card will never work
- Audio not working 100% on UX430
- Everything else works well

Notes:
- If you have problems with trackpad, ask for support here! Don't ask on official VoodooI2C's repo. This build uses modified VoodooI2C kexts by me.
- If your laptop has Optimus nVidia GPU, it will be disabled. macOS doesn't support it.

hi, thank you very much for this guide. I used it to set my Asus UX430UNR up. Luckily my touchpad is working now :) But I had to insert some lines to the config file in order to get my Intel HD 620 working. The Courser is jumping sometimes around, but I saw that this is a known error. My problem is that my laptop gets very hot on the upper left side(maybe Nvidia card is not disabled ? how do I do that ?) and also HWSensor application doesn't start. Do you have an advise ?
(report files are attached)

Installation is OK.

Headphone not working.
Double click on physical trackpad not working.

Like @Fifikus, I need to graphics fix.
Also brightness control via FN not working at all.
