I'm on the keyboard about 6+ hours a day and I don't have many mistaps with tap to click. My palm does not touch the keyboard/touchpad; I find that if I dangle my fingers/hand over the keyboard while typing, my wrist doesn't hurt at all after extended use. It did take a while getting used to, but worth it if you're typing over long periods of time (nothing beats taking short breaks to stretch though). But most of my coworkers/people I know don't use tap to click, so I can see where you're coming from.

I also have the bluetooth problem where it goes "Bluetooth unavailable" after I wake from sleep, as I use a bluetooth speaker. I don't know how to replicate the issue, but it always goes away when I restart the laptop and happens maybe 1 out of 20+ times after I wake from sleep.

I tried installing the Bluetooth kexts to L/E, along with keeping it with kexts/other and Detect Kexts on, but no luck. There was still bluetooth unavailable from time to time.

In a second attempt, I removed the Bluetooth kexts from kexts/Other and kept it in L/E and it resulted in a kernel panic after 30 seconds after logging in, 100% of the time. I don't know if I had to remove any hotpatches or anything else besides stuff from Kexts/Other. I quickly put the BT kexts back from Trash to kexts/other as fast as I could before any more kernel panics.

Kext cache rebuilt after every kext change.

But that is a minor annoyance; would be great if it could be fixed though. My network card is a DW1560.

I also had the same issue as you where my laptop woke up from sleep in my backpack. It was extremely warm-hot and my battery was drained from 100%. It only happened once in the past 3-4 months since I had hackintosh on it (never happened with Windows/Linux), but like the previous issue, I can't replicate it and it was months ago.

Thanks, sure the tap thing isn't a big thing, but would be nice not to have bt going off, i didnt see it mentioned before thus at least i know i am not alone here on this one :/
Anyways after restart it is still there unavailable, anyways looks like i get bt unavailable when getting of from sleep only when after charging but also sometimes it went away also during just doing things on laptop...

ok rebuiding kextcache and then restart made in available again.

overheating while sleep happened again now, i just came and laptop is hot, battery is only at 50% so i guess it must have started just now who knows for what reason, kernel_task was having most of cpu percentage..

Thanks for this guide. This is so much cleaner. My only problem is the keyboard not working randomly every reboot or cold boot. I have to mess around the kextcache to make it work again.

Very nice guide! Is there a specific way to install Kexts? I can install Mojave just fine using the latest Clover (rehabman). MacOS boots up fine without the USB but as soon as I install the kexts provided and try to reboot, I get stuck in a bootloop. I'm using kextsbeast and installing to L\E. Am I missing something?

Had the same issue, used kext updater to scan for an updated versions of what was provided, once I overwrote those and installed via the provided kextbeast all was good!

Seperate question. I had to do this when I installed high sierra but it's been a while and can't seem to get this working.

Is there something specific for mojave that I need to do to get my wireless adapter to be recognised as built in? Wanting to do this so I can get imessage etc. working

@ALL,

Has anyone noticed the Framebuffer Depth Value in Hardware-Graphics/Displays? it is 30-bit, Shouldn't it be 32-bit?
I have not a macbook*, Can anyone help confirm this value on real Macbook and hackbook? What are your values?

Here is my screenshot:
