    Today I tried replacing my CLOVER folder with the latest master branch of @the-darkvoid. I ran into a few issues:
    • Bluetooth, brightness keys and audio stopped working. I tried everything mentioned in the previous pages and have bluetooth working again, but no luck with audio.
    • Sleep/wake works for me, but with a little twist: namely a flash for a split second of the Apple loading screen when the machine is waking up.
    Luckily, Clover automatically backs up the EFI folder, so what I did was rollback my previous working configuration (again the-darkvoid's, but from about a month ago) and overwrite the files which were updated since a month ago. Somehow audio is working again... IDK I'm a total newbie in these affairs, so if someone can clarify what exactly happened, it'd be greatly appreciated.
    ----
    I also updated to 10.13.6 and it's still working as expected. Using the new CPUFriend kext, I was able to see frequencies as low a 500MHz when idling, is this even possible?

    One last thing: connecting external monitors works, but only if I put the laptop to sleep and let it wake up. Only then it will recognize the monitor. I have to do this every time I unplug the USB-C connector which is pretty annoying. Does someone know how to fix this? Much appreciated and thanks in advance!

    UPDATE:
    It seems like it depends on the type of display that's being used...
    The issue does happen with a LG 27UD88-W, but not with a AOC G2460FQ for example.
    I have no clue at all why.

    After considerable testing, the best I have been able to get for pkg power is 1.48w w/o inject and 1.59w w/ inject. Are you still getting 0.7w total for the package? and if so, could you please share details of your config (EFI dir, additional kext details, etc)? At this point this is just about the perfect laptop, only thing missing is better battery life :) Thanks so much.

    I just have the basic configuration from the GitHub repo from the dark void + the modified IOPlatformPluginFamily, I've noticed that sometimes directly after the restart of the system the POWER PKG idles around 1.6 Watt, after some time, or when the computer was for a longer time closed (aka sleep) the PKG works correctly and it reaches the 0.7 Watt

    that seems crazy low. how did you patch IOPlatformPluginFamily? Did you use the freqVectorsEdit script?

    EDIT: I get a reading of about 0.6 Watt idle on Windows as well, so it appears to be correct at least. However i am wondering if this even has anything to do with IOPlatformPluginFamily? As far as i know, when HWP is enabled X86PlatformPlugin should be irrelevant to the frequency stepping of the CPU, or am i wrong? I thought the CPU itself handles everything?

    I really liked the responsiveness of VoodooI2C with the touchpad, but got quite annoyed by accidental palm touches and the inability to disable the touchpad when using an external mouse.

    These functionalities are really great on VoodooPS2Controller. Hence, I have now refactored the notification system on VoodooPS2Controller to allow interacting with VoodooI2CHID.

    Compiled updated kexts are published to my XPS9360 repository in kext and CLOVER/kexts/Other/ folders.

    Hello,

    Recently I updated my Clover and some SSDT files, kexts from darkvoid and have the following issues:

    - Audio not working (Worked fine before the update)
    - Touchpad not working (Worked fine before the update), if I rolled back to my backup Clover, it works again.

    AppleALC, AppleHDA and CodecCommander are loaded as seen from kextstat
    Running ioreg -l|grep layout-id gives me layout-id=<07000000>
    I guess it is the problem but Idk how to modify it

    Remove AppleALC from Clover kexts and run XPS9360.sh --patch-hda to create an AppleHDA injector.
    Layout ID when using AppleHDA injector should be 0x000001

    I tried looking through the entire thread and i couldnt seem to find how to change the ownership and permission of the kext inside the sle postinstall folder. Not only that but it does not specify if to change the permissions of the entire folder or just the 2 files that are added into it. It would be helpul if soemone got back to me. Ive been stuck here for the last 24 hours. I’m also running Mac OS high Sierra 10.13.6 through the clover file dark void made. I boot into Mac fine the only things that don’t work are the track pad and the audio. If this step isn’t necessary for this Mac OS please let me know.

    If using AppleALC, you should be using layout ID 0x38 (56). If using my script with AppleHDA injector kext, the layout ID is 0x01 (1).
