Why not? Hotpatching should make BIOS updates less problematic.
1.3.7 likely updates Kaby Lake microcode, like the newest BIOS for 9560...
Just updated to 1.3.7, several key components have been updated (EC, USB-C firmware).
Everything seems ok.

Meanwhile, the new BIOS retained the value of variable 0x785

and everything works!
except the type-c to usb3 hot plug (needs reboot)

I have the previous generation system (9350) which has the exact same audio chip set and layout. Using the CloverHDA and Codec Command with the ALC SSDT I get a fairly strong static thorugh the headphone jack. I mean you can still hear the audio fine but it is annoying. Speakers work fine without static. Anyone else have this problem?

Hey,
I use Dell 7560 i7 7500U DDR4 8GB, 940MX, Intel 620.
I have achieved a proper working Hackintosh on this laptop. Everything is working, Battery, Sound, Brightness, Bluetooth. Graphics 620.
But there are still few minor issues.
1. Battery doesn't shows how much time ?
2. Headphone not working, no sound from headphone jack. And sound from speakers is also low. Realtek ALC 256 (3246)
3. Keyboard Command Key.

I am attaching the DSDT.aml and DSDT.dsl file. Can anybody please help me solving the 6 errors left for compiling. Once compiled, i will be able to solve these issues. Please help solving DSDT errors. Please find attached DSDT file.

Regards,
Ravi Singh

Updated to 1.3.7 bios, new PC300 NVMe SK hynix firmware & 10.12.6.
Getting an increase of performance, specially in graphics (Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640) by using native KBL drivers.

I'm also getting noise with same config on my laptop (9360).

1) At which % do you get red battery icon and which % do you get the low batt popup?
2) RSSI is fluctuating up and down, icons from other networks show different signal strengths, its the active network that will always show at 100% on menubar.
3) Sorry, I meant fn + ins, it reboots instead of sleeping.
4) Will try to fix this :)
5) I always map caps lock to alt key because old keyboards don't have alt key so I'm used to that

1) It's showing the popup and red icon, but need to wait until 5%

No noise here... I don't know how to help you. Maybe there's some sort of mic loop (mic active and routed to headphones)?

@bozma88 when I have an 512b formatted SSD. Do I need the SSDT-NVME. I thought it´s just for the Samsungs SSD´s so I deleted it. Is this ok? for example to to prevent corrupt data?
Thank you.

NVME 512b drives need the ACPI PCI spoof to disable native storage controller and a patched storage controller. Read the guides, it's important. You need to disable hiberantion and darkwakes to prevent rare occurrences of FS corruption. To completely prevent darkwakes, the only solution so-far is to stay with non-native PM.

1. Normal in 10.12.3(?)+
2. Check to have SSDT and Codeccommander and CloverHDA properly installed and loading.
3. You have to swap them in KB configuration in SysPrefs

Same here. Problem exists from first tutorial, on my device with all headphones -> earpods, hyperx cloud, beats, etc.

Static noice and very noticeable punches on sound card start are very annoying.

Hello @bozma88,
thanks a lot for your nice work. Could you also provide human readable versions of your SSDTs (.dsl) for those who would like to learn what's inside?
