ComboJack Support

In previous, the 3.5mm audio jack is combo, which supported microphone and headset that use only one plug. And this is not working under OS X. Today I found there're some people successfully developed and it works.

Below is how to install it.
  1. Delete CodecCommander.kext under /L/E & delete ACPI/patched/SSDT-ALC256.aml under CLOVER.
  2. Use git clone or directly download from git site https://github.com/hackintosh-stuff/ComboJack
  3. After clone/unzip, install ComboJack_Installer/VerbStub.kext into /L/E.
    (The guide recommend put into CLOVER/kexts/Others, but it will not working since we already set config.plist/SystemParameters/InjectKexts=Detect)
  4. Run install.sh under ComboJack_Installer by using terminal.
    Code:
    sudo ./install.sh
  5. Reboot and try.
Initially tested with headset and it works well, the microphone will input from headset and build-in microphone will muted.
I'm not going to update my archive until this method is stable.

Thanks to the developers who made it!

So do I replace the DSDT first then update the BIOS through windows? Everything should work fine

Is that right?

The BIOS included security fix about CPU security loophole, so suggest to do update.

You can put it into CLOVER first, boot into Windows to do BIOS update, then go back to OS X.
If you forgot, using DSDT version for 1.8.0 BIOS after update is acceptable. (I tested.)
But it's hard to say in the future release.

Hello everyone, I am currently running the macOS 10.13.6 on my machine and I want to install the Mojave in it. But I am not able to boot the installer, neither with my current clover setup or the new one provided by missle0407 for Mojave.

I am using the bios 1.10.0 but I tried to install the mojave in the previous bios versions and the results was the same.

In the attach is the clover that I use to boot the 10.13.6.

Please boot with verbose mode and enable "Don't reboot when panic", and see what happen.
Also, have you done BIOS hot-patch or not?

I figured out that I not finished the bios hot patch when I tried before, I do the hot patch now and I can boot and install the Mojave, thanks a lot man.
