It might be just a coincidence, but by using alcid=11, instead of 56, I'm getting both a functioning internal microphone input (instead of a fake line-in), and normal stereo output (although perhaps not at the highest output volume) and most importantly, stable sleep(!)
Current remaining issues:
My kernel-task issues are definitely not nearly as prevalent as before, and the only thing I monkied with is the alcid.
- Bluetooth doesn't always re-enable from sleep, but it can be toggled on and off in preferences, and that fixes it. Otherwise works great, for both a Magic Mouse, and external audio (most of the time, see below)
- Audio doesn't always work when connecting/disconnecting a bluetooth audio device. E.g. sometimes, I'll get audio, other times I won't, like when using Hangouts for video chat and switching audio sources, or enabling/disabling the bluetooth audio.
- Right-click on the trackpad doesn't work, but my work-around is two-finger tap.
BTW, I found the '11' layout option by looking at the https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/wiki/Supported-codecs and matching it to the codec in the XPS 9360: Realtek ALC256 (3246)
I was able to resolve some of these issues by updating with the latest from @the-darkvoid repo: https://github.com/the-darkvoid/XPS9360-macOS/
Also, there is some good information in some of the issues discussions that is missing from this forum:
macOS Catalina on Dell XPS 9360. Contribute to the-darkvoid/XPS9360-macOS development by creating an account on GitHub.
Specifically, I was able to resolve both the trackpad right-click issue, and the headphone jack issues I encountered as they are both discussed there with proposed resolutions.
Many thanks to @the-darkvoid for doing the heavy lifting after @bozma88 's original guide has become stale, and for continuing to update and maintain the repository.
