Only FakeSMC? VirtualSMC for Laptop?

Can Virtualsmc be used? I’d also be interested in learning if virtualSMC is better to use.

in that repository, what is the different between these config files?
config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist
config_HD615_620_630_640_650_spoof.plist
config_UHD630.plist

I have HD 630, which plist should I choose?
You need "config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist" if you don't have a Ultra HD display and you want to use Mojave or High Sierra. This is the one I used and I have the same CPU/GPU.

config_HD615_620_630_640_650_spoof.plist (For macOS prior to 10.12.6)
config_UHD630.plist (This file is for 10.14.x with native CoffeeLake support)

Hey guys, I'm trying to fresh install Mojave 10.14.5 on my laptop. I tried creating several installers using createinstallmedia, but in all cases I get a validation error when installation starts (saying download is damaged). Time and date is correct (checked in installer terminal). Tried re-downloading. Tried different USB drives and USB HDD's. Really nothing helps. Anyone had same problem or knows a solution? Thanks!

UPD: Problem solved by disassembling laptop and physically disconnecting battery for 15 minutes

Have made an USB installer with 10.14.5 following guide; boots properly, however once in installation it's asking for bluetooth mouse/keyboard (not recognizing integrated peripherals).
You'll probably need VoodooPS2controller & VoodooI2C kexts. I had the same just plugged in a USB keyboard and mouse for the installation

I've got them--that's what's strange... Procuring keyboard.

Hi,

I'm trying to install Sierra on my HP pavillion g6 1240sa. I've successfully created an installation usb using this guide, and booted it into clover (legacy boot)

Using the boot args -v - s -x

I get the the following kernel panic

If anyone has any pointers I'd be very appreciative.

Thanks.

Is there any fix for headphone jack not working on Mojave(10.14.5)? The speakers work fine, the line-in works fine but not the headphone(it's a combo jack).

Thanks
