Hello everyone, this is my first post on tonymacx86
I created a video walkthrough on configuring macOS Mojave on the laptop:
I am having only one issue: How to I make sleep functionality work?
When I configure the Library Kexts from darkvoid's folder, it makes the laptop
unable to sleep and wake up. Without those kexts, the laptop can sleep (but I prefer having Bluetooth enabled).
Thanks for providing that walkthrough video Mark, it was definitely helpful in a few steps that I had not gotten correct in my build.
I have managed to get Mojave 14.0 (not 14.0.2) installed on my XPS 9360 using your video, Darkvoid's setup, and the many comments/suggestions on this thread and others.
I am dual-booting with Windows (which I had to reinstall from scratch after reformatting to 4k sectors) and am using Clover as my boot loader for both OSX and Windows 10.
I am using the VoodooHDA for Audio, as I have not had luck with the AppleHDA or AppleALC Kext, but I have not added additional Layouts as per the Mojave guide, which may be required. My issue with the audio (so far) is that the microphone gain is set way too high, and doesn't appear to be adjustable making video conferencing not possible with the onboard mic. I'm also not using the ACPIBattery kext in Darkvoid's GitHub as per Mark's suggestion. On preliminary studying of it, it shouldn't be affecting the issue I am seeing below. I'm injecting the majority of the main kexts in CLOVER, rather than installing them in /Library/Extensions, so I'm not sure if that's an issue or not.
The biggest issue I am getting though, is consistent full-machine freezes where the screen blanks out, as is from sleep, but cannot be woken up, and the machine needs to be hard-booted by pressing the power button down for several seconds. This only seems to happen when the machine is going into some sleep/C-State mode. (I have C-states enabled in BIOS), and have specified all of the other recommended BIOS settings as per the original guide.
Any idea why I'd be getting these hard-crash/freezes? I've attached my CLOVER directory from EFI, my output from IOReg, console output from the various kext commands, and the DSTD files.
Any help with fixing the frequent (I think) sleep related freezes, and possibly the microphone gain issue would be greatly appreciated. I haven't tried upgrading to Mojave 14.0.2 as when I tried initially, the lack of trackpad support in the installer prevented me from selecting my OSX APFS drive, even with keyboard shortcuts. From the release notes on Apple, it doesn't appear that this is that important of an update, but if it's recommended to stability, I can give it a try.
