So is it only me having the brightness controls not working? And if not, any easy workarounds?

I find out the headphone jack will not give any output if I insert a Apple headphone with mic in it.
I used to have it work. What would possibly go wrong?

@Ocytoxin,

Rebuild your kernel cache.
@the-darkvoid

First, thank you for your answer!

I tried, but it doesnt change anything.

Here is the output i get :


mbp-de-loic:~ lobo$ sudo kextcache -i /
Password:
Kext with invalid signatured (-67062) allowed: <OSKext 0x7f858a81a6f0 [0x7fffa60fd8f0]> { URL = "AppleBacklightFixup.kext/ -- file:///Library/Extensions/", ID = "com.hieplpvip.AppleBacklightFixup" }
AppleBacklightFixup.kext - dependency 'as.vit9696.Lilu' not found.
AppleBacklightFixup.kext is missing dependencies (including anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere)
KernelCache ID: 54FA3CC2817C148F8C96BCE870D18012
Kext with invalid signatured (-67062) allowed: <OSKext 0x7f90dedfb950 [0x7fffa60fd8f0]> { URL = "AppleBacklightFixup.kext/ -- file:///Library/Extensions/", ID = "com.hieplpvip.AppleBacklightFixup" }

I have no idea how to fix kenel dependencies, should I look into it? Or is it likely to be related to something else?

AppleBacklightFixup.kext does not exist in my git repo, so not sure what files your setup is based on.
That is likely the cause of your issue.

Darkvoid, when OP left did they put you in charge of this thread or something? You act as though you're the guide author even though you never went to the trouble of writing one.

Ocytoxin, it appears you're missing Lilu. If you want to use kexts that need Lilu (it's typically the case now) and install them into /Library/Extensions, then you'll have to use LiluFriend too. And in my case, i found that also required switching from VirtualSMC to FakeSMC. With kexts in EFI/CLOVER, it's a little simpler.

@kylec,

I don't believe @bozma88 left, but he hasn't done any updates in quite a while.
Additionally, it would be appreciated that, before you point fingers, you actually know the history:

Over a year ago, @bozma88 had already posted he was doing a High Sierra guide, and I replied the following

@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.
In the meantime people in this thread started using the hot-patch based repository I posted in this thread some 100's of replies back.

Personally I believe there is a lot more time invested in actually keeping a hackintosh repo up-to-date compared to writing a guide which follows the default hotpatch method described by @RehabMan.

On top of that drivers you are using today, were written by me from scratch, and later enhanced with @RehabMan's such as FakePCIID and BrcmPatchRAM. Feel free to look at my git repositories for other work, the XPS 9360 is not my first hackintosh.

As this is an open community, driven by contribution, it would be fantastic if you would contribute a guide, since you feel it is lacking.

That's the type of reply I should have expected. Fine - I don't wish to argue.

Just don't put words in my mouth. I have no desire to write guides. That's an ad hominem, anyway.

@the-darkvoid

First thanks alot for your commitment to the XPS 9360! It is a wonderful machine indeed ;)

I'm going to attempt my first hackintosh install next weekend after the arrival of my DW1560. I gathered quite alot of knowledge already, including mark perez guide and all the stuff regarding the correct CPUFriend kext (with voltage tables) aswell as making sleep work.

However, there is still one thing I still do not understand: as in post #1 stated, we do not need DSDT patches anymore, because "hotpatching" is used. I tried to find anything on Google relating this topic, but failed to find a comparison between the old and new method. In your GIthub repo I noticed, that your DSDT folder got updated 19 days ago - so it seems to me, that it is still used.
In mark perez guide however, the folder is not even touched and not copied to any EFI partition - is it of any importance?

Thank alot in advance to all of you!
And wish me luck with my first hackintosh experience hahah

Anyone else having a problem with the trackpad just stopping randomly, requiring a reboot? Is there some configuration of the VoodooI2C kext that addresses this issue?
I also have/had the problem of the trackpad not working when installing OSX, but after running through the steps to configure and reload the kext cache, it would work on boot, and post-sleep, etc. Now, it's randomly stopping, requiring a reboot.
This hasn't occurred again after pulling the latest version of DarkVoid's repo and updating my Clover/Kexts as such.
