Swapping the wifi card may void warranty, but all it takes to revert to a stock system is that you don't sell the killer card and swap it again in case of hw issues.

thats exactly what i was thinkig about :)

After a long battle it seems I got my XPS 13 QHD Touch Stable (Finger's crossed). It seemed that the audio driver hates sleep or switching to my external soundcard on my mixer. I suspect the audio driver was making kernel_task skyrocket in CPU usage.

Question: My 9360 came with an M2 SATA drive, anyone know if it will take an M2 NVMe?

I have good news. Regarding the Wifi/BT chip. I bought a BCM94352z without an A-key. BUT, I was successfully able to cut a notch into it with a dremel (cutting disc) and it works perfectly. Mine was a Lenovo one from eBay.

SO, finding a unicorn A-keyed BCM94352z isn't absolutely necessary - if you have a dremel, a steady hand, and balls, you can do it with an E-keyed one.

For anyone who attempts this... be very careful. I take no responsibility for if you break anything.

Yes it will take NVME drive mine came with Hynix PC300 512GB and it works fine with bozma88's instructions.

Have you handle this about camera? @RaymondXie
I got the same problem as you.
I know nearly nothing about the camera kext. What I can do is waiting for the camera light fading out(taking a long time), which means it will work again

Found a sad bug for me...
When I use Safari with the language option (Chinese), a click of CapsLock can lead to a non responsible state. So I could only force quit it.

Try different encoding, it might help

Hey guys,
I've got a problem about bluetooth.
It seems a bug of sierra. My bluetooth become "not available" after sleep when I left.
Energy Saver setting "Put hard disk to sleep when possible" on. I don't know if it related.

If you guys meet same problem, try this.
[Solution]:
1.Open Finder and go to /Library/Preferences/
2.Find "com.apple.Bluetooth.plist" and remove it.( ! IMPORTANT: empty trash or it won't work.)
3.then shutdown( ! IMPORTANT not reboot)
4.open your XPS and enjoy

I'll test if it's about the Energy Saver setting "Put hard disk to sleep when possible" .
