Good news everyone: I managed to make native HWP work.
I am seeing 20% more battery life with this new configuration.
A normal usage pattern will now go beyond 13 hours of use.
With a more Efficiency-inclined EEP (~200) the savings are even more interesting.
I am still perfecting the power management .plist, will explain everything once I update the guide.
I'll release updated files in a few days.
Meanwhile I want to share my AppleIntelInfo log with you:

Oh, there's still room for improvement: I have to enable SSD power management and to test this thermal management hack: http://www.ultrabookreview.com/10395-dell-xps-13-9550-iris-540

Today I tried to swap my 1535. Unfortunately, I incautiously broke the AUX port of my 1535 and my black antenna.
Is it OK that I only connected the white antenna and the Main port of BCMcard. My 9360 is totally the same with yours, so I used your EFI folder but didn't find where to open WiFi and AirDrop.
Could you please help me? Thanks a lot!
Edit:After rebooting, WiFi is working! Bluetooth seems unable to connect my Android but AirDrop is working! But I don't know why my camera light couldn't close after using camera, and when I want to use camera it can not be connected(by FaceTime etc.).

Just want to inform you all that today I received my usb-c to HDMI adapter, usb-c to usb-a adapter, usb-c power delivery charger and microsd card reader flush adapter, so expect a new wave of R&D.

@bozma88 were you able to try the HDMI adapter to a TV to test if you get audio and video output?

How did you manage to install WiFi ? i copied all the files in the efi folder, and restarted multiple times, but still no wi-fi (Yes, i have a new BCM94352z card).

After install, copy the two Brcm... .kext packages into /System/Library/Extensions

For each package, run:
sudo chown -R root:wheel [filename]
sudo chmod -R 755 [filename]

Reboot.

I just found out the part. I will install all kexts in the other folder. I do have 2 follow up questions :

While I do appreciate the personalised keyboard for the dell 9360 , I have a British laptop version. Is there any chance I could find somewhere the British version of the file?

I have a Microsoft arc bluetooth mouse, which connects fine. But if I reboot, it is not recognised anymore. I can see the old one paired in the bluetooth setting, and if I try to pair one again, a new one will appear (which I don't think is how it is supposed to work)

Thank you,
Cosmin Cucu

I was going to play around with Ukelale when I have time to try creating a British layout for this laptop.
In the mean time I found the standard apple "British - PC" layout works for everything except backslash, which is swapped with the key just below ESC.

I didn't copy those two kexts into SLE but it's working too. Will it be better if I do that?

Oh, there's still room for improvement: I have to enable SSD power management and to test this thermal management hack: http://www.ultrabookreview.com/10395-dell-xps-13-9550-iris-540

I tried installing all those heat fixes. It basically uses the underside of the laptop as a heatsink. And i don't know about yours, but mine gets VERY hot . Performance wise, don't know if you'll see a big improvements except for cpu heavy applications.

Yeah! I managed installing them and now audio is working! Excellent~
Now I'm waiting for my BCMcard. Tomorrow I'll try to swap 1535 and turn this laptop into a wonderful Hachintosh~
Thanks again, Bozma88. Hope your later delivery~
