I think @daliansky already send a solution, maybe you can try.
To set verb code permanently, you have to edit info.plist inside CodeCommander.kext

I may workout on this in this weekend.
You can try daliansky's reply.


You have to install CLOVER by using install package before copy.
Also just copy config.plist, DSDT file, SSDT file, UEFI drivers, and kexts to CLOVER.

BTW, you may need to update ur profile included ur hardware spec.

Thanks installed Clover
So could you help me with the trackpad and power management

Thanks

I already tried yesterday and it broke my system. I had to reinstall it. Even the recovery didn't worked. :(
I don't know why.. I think it was this code in the end of the install file. :think:

Code:
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/ && sudo kextcache -u /

Luck me the EFI partition was intact, so I just installed the system, updated and everything was already working :D




Ok. Thanks. I'll try it in the afternoon.
I already tested modification of CodecCommander.kext, and it can work without ALCPluginFix.

First, remove ALCPluginFix files.
Code:
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchAgents/good.win.ALCPlugFix.plist
sudo rm /usr/bin/ALCPlugFix
sudo rm /usr/bin/hda-verb
sudo rm /Library/LaunchAgents/good.win.ALCPlugFix.plist

Please reboot after deletion, and check audio jack, it should have output but no sound.

And Here's how to add:
  1. Open CodecCommander.kext/Contents/info.plist
  2. Direct to IOKitPersonalities/CodecCommander/Codec Profile
  3. Add new profile and settings, follow the red box inside below picture.

(Oops! Please change Comment from "0x19 SET_PIN_WIDGET_CONTROL 0x25" to "0x19 SET_PIN_WIDGET_CONTROL 0x20")

Save, install CodecCommander.kext into /L/E, then reboot.

DELL Inspiron 7560 sound card is ALC256,It has 4 valid nodes: 0x12 0x14 0x19 0x21, 0x19 is Mic Ext, so far it still does not work under macOS. My solution is to have 0x12 (Mic Int) work to solve the sound input problem regardless of whether the earphone is plugged in or not.
To this end, I recompiled ALCPlugFix, which is located in my github repository.
At the same time I recompiled the driver of ALC256 and submitted it to maintainer vit9696 of AppleALC. Now you can use layout-id: 13 to inject and use it. For better sound, please use layout-id: 56, AppleALC updated to v1.2.1 and above.
By the way: AppleALC + CodecCommander + ALCPlugFix to make your ALC256 work perfectly
my github: https://github.com/daliansky/dell7000
Hi, thanks for advice!

I tried layout-id with 56, and I'm sure using AppleALC v1.2.1, but no sound device found after reboot.
And it works normal when change layout-id back to 13.

Confirmed that layout-id=56 worked after upgrade AppleALC to v1.2.2
And the sound quality seems little better than before.

Thanks for ur contribution, really appreciate.

So, do you think it's impossible to make a DSDT to make all gestures work out? :think:

Impossible, I guess.
You can use more gestures by modify keyboard hotkey.

But for others......Apple's trackpad is very different than normals.
So want to use full functional gesture, no further to do unless buy independent bluetooth Apple trackpad.

I'm saying that because a friend made hackintosh with another notebook and the guide where he followed teached how to make a DSDT for the trackpad and worked almost all gestures worded out.
But I don't know if there is so much difference. But his notebook has a new touchpad type.. I2C..

But, I wonder if we could make this works on our notebook :)
