Removing this DSDT causes strange video glitches.......
Hotplug isn't very reliable, sometimes it stops working and I have to reboot and connect the dock while I'm on clover, but then I can disconnect it and reconnect and it works fine...

I'm going to have some time in the coming weeks, have you made any advancements?

Hi
Was wondering if there could be some erratic issues maybe i miss the right kext for dw1830?

Sorry not sure about the dw1830, I may have some time soon if you still need help.

However, my brightness and volume keys still don't work. Any idea how to go about fixing this?
Try to rebuild kext cache.

Hi @blazinsmokey,

First of all, thank you for the awesome guide! The effort is much appreciated!!
I just completed an upgrade from 10.13.6 to 10.14.2 - took a while as I had to clean up and decided to switch to WEG and VirtualSMC, but now my machine is running sweeter than ever.
I have two small problems though - well... one problem, and an interesting oddness. Perhaps you, or someone with the same system, can help with the problem.

The interesting oddness:
On @RehabMan 's suggestion, I put all injected kexts into /L/E, but noticed that with VirtualSMC.kext in there, boot would timeout with:

AppleLMUController::getSMCProvider Error: Wait for AppleSMC provider timed out
AppleLMUController::startError: Could not get SMCProvider
busy timeout[0], (60s): 'AppleACPICPU'


Removing VirtualSMC from /L/E (but keeping in CLOVER/kexts/Other) would enable the machine to boot.
(Looking at the gen_debug logs, I should do the same with SMCBatteryManager.kext but whatever)
Just putting this here in case it helps out anyone who has the same issue. I guess it's a load sequence issue?

The problem:
I have a Dell monitor that accepts a DP connection over USB-C, so I'm using that (through USB-C on the XPS).
When the monitor is attached, audio only comes through the laptop speakers, and there is no option in the Sound System Preference to switch to Display Port.
If I then connect the monitor via HDMI, I get two options - one for output through HDMI, and one for output through DisplayPort.
Switching to DP output gives me sound through attached speakers (as does HDMI), and then removing the HDMI cable enables the DP option to remain and work still.
Pulling the USB-C cable and then reattaching removed the DP option and it doesn't come back, until HDMI is plugged back in.
It's not really a major problem, as I have the above workaround, but I would love to get it sorted.
I tried both having USB-C attached before boot, and attaching it after I've logged in - no difference.
Is this something you (or anyone reading) has come across?

Just in case, I've attached the gen_debug output.

Thanks for any guidance you can give!
