I made a minimal OC folder for Catalina
One thing is missing : the Brightness buttons that doesn't work anymore.
Is there a specific SSDT to add or Kext ?
Thanks in advance

Regarding darkvoid files, at least SSDT-PNLF and SSDT-BRT6 are responsible for brightness control. Dunno if there are more.
thanks
I'll try that
EDIT : not working with those two SSDTs ... unfortunately
Keep searching
EDIT : Brightness is working in Monitor the Prefpane with its slider ... but not the Keyboard

FYI : I made A custom French keyboard layout with Ukulele ... impossible to configure combo 'Fn' Key
Sound up and down are working but no brightness up and down

I had success with Big Sur Beta 8 on the XPS 9360 Kaby Lake HD620 FHD 1920x1080. Used the EFI from Acer Swift 3 SF314 54 2018 MacOS Big Sur Guide. Updated the SMBios to MacBookPro 15.2, installed CPUfriend kexts and Usb wifi kexts.

Graphics,Sleep, brightness, Trackpad gestures, Bluetooth, battery, sound, andUsb C (Dock and Hdmi) all work. Not sure about power usage as Intel Power Gadget does not work with Big Sur.

Edit: Intel Power Gadget working on Big Sur Beta 9.

No need for Intel Power Gadget. Use coconutbattery or Battery Doctor and monitor current usage (mAh). A stable and well-configured system on idle load should consume between 800-1400mAh across the range of 9360s.

Big Sur B8 is running really well on my 5-year old MBP, better than any other pre-release macOS in the last few years. When the OS reaches GM I'll upgrade the Mojave installation on the 9360 and post an updated CLOVER configuration.

On that note, I need some suggestions as to a good partition backup software in case all goes t*ts up. I've previously used Symantec Ghost32 (yes, restoring mac via Windows. primitive but 100% effective) but now looking for something more modern that isn't CCC or time machine.
