Hi, It's really great! Could you please share the EFI?
I've struggle for long time.
MLB, Serial number & UUID has been blanked out

Bluetooth also works now w/ the latest Kext Updates

However Low Power Mode seems to freeze my system


Note: I'm using the latest UEFI

BTW I've also tried undervolting, however (as already mentioned in this thread) it's not feasible w/ the current firmware.

Therefore I was curious whether anyone actually tried a downgrade (I'm afraid of bricking my device and having to reflash it via an EEPROM flasher)

Really Thank you!
I've try it. But the Bluetooth still not working.
I need to upgrade new kext? or this pack is the newest one?
I use the DW1830 card.

I deleted BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext b/c it's no longer necessary in Monterey.

But you could readd it and set MaxKernel to 20.6.0 (I believe, check w/ uname -v; so the Kext is only loaded when booting into Big Sur and lower)

Thank you! There is one more question,
When I use your kext USBPorts.kext I can't get my second harddisk(Even in Disk Utility, not show )
When I replace with my old one. It shows, also could be read and write. but all usb was broke.
Any idea? THANK YOU

USBPorts.kext is specific to a certain SMBIOS. If you are using 14,3 vs 14,1 etc. you will have to modify Info.plist. I prefer to use SSDT for USB mapping.

Should have Monterey and OC 0.7.5 EFI post up later this week for all. For those who cannot wait, here's a live copy of my EFI running Monterey 12.0.1. It incorporates the changes mentioned above - removing BluetoothInjector and (disabling) FakePCIID and HDMI spoof, which may break HDMI audio until a fix is released. Additionally, as I mention, my USB Ports are outlined via SSDT rather than kext, so adjust accordingly.

I strongly advise you use my EFI as a reference for your own instead of copy/paste. As always, SMBIOS info is stripped out. I am currently using MBP14,3, but others may be using MBP14,1.

A (very slightly tweaked) guide to Monterey with the above EFI has been posted.


This is @blazinsmokey's guide - all credit to them - with updated tweaks for Monterey support.
