I got 2 main problems:

If i load the AppleHDA.kext and AppleALC.kext I got a bootloop, without them, no audio device is detected.
The only way to get it working is loading voodoohda but it seems that the pin config is wrong, to make the external audio work I have to pull out the jack just e little bit until I can hear sound (mic and line inverted?)

With the battery at 96% I have 3:33hours (cpu usage at 5%).

It takes about 5 hours to full charge the battery, it is as expected?

Thank you :thumbup:

@the-darkvoid @bozma88 I think we need a new guide created in the HS guides because this one is now getting overrun by HS questions and problems that Sierra doesn’t have. More confusion will happen.
@bozma88 has posted previously that he was going to do a High Sierra guide. My github, based on some of the work of @bozma88 is solely High Sierra, but I don't want to take away from his work by authoring a guide.

I solved the audio issue, now it works using AppleHDA , @the-darkvoid ALC256 patch and editing the info plist, before I had bootloop after patching, this is what I did:

- Restore AppleHDA.kext from High sierra install disk in S/L/E
- Remove any AppleALC, CloverHDA, VoodooHDA,CodecCommander in S/L/E or L/E
- Run alc256 patch
- Move L/E AppleHDA_ALC256.kext on desktop
- Open it and edit Info.plist set LayoutID 13

I have a couple of questions:
- Is the sound still operational after restore from sleep?
- I have similar setup but your procedure does not work for me on 10.13.3 but does if I drop in AppleALC and VoodooHDA into L/E (Drawback: Audio breaks on wake from sleep)
- Do you still have @the-darkvoid AppleHDA 'Kernel and Kext Patch' x4 entries?

Yes audio is working after sleep and I still have 4 AppleHDA patch, probably different audio card.

Take a look here and try different layout id, most used are 3,13,57.

Does this happen after waking from sleep? Because i remember having wifi connectivity issue after sleep, and disabling wake on WiFi in SysPref > Energy Saver did the trick.

Samsung 850 EVO is not NVMe.

I'm using the 1TB done, PM works fine.
Noob question here. I am looking to hackintosh a 9360 i7-8550u and plan to replace the stock SSD with a Samsung 850 Evo 500gb. The 9360 setup guide however says the M.2 drive can only support up to 128gb of SATA storage (though NVMe/PCIe are listed as 1TB). Why would the capacity be listed so low?

These are dell's default capacities offered during the order. There are no limits in os, nor the UEFI for both NVMe & SATA, so you can install the drive of any capacity and speed you need.
