Hi! I followed your guide in 10.14.2 and everything is fine. With clover v3.0, the USB-C is not working. I tried to connect usb-c hdd when laptop is turned off to test cold boot, and nothing. Ive tried too after sleep, not success. Are you working ok with clover v3.0? For me, 2.1 works ok with USB-c hot plug atm.

Hi @blazinsmokey . Im working OK with clover 2.1 atm, with ps2controller installed in /S/L. But, after wake up from sleep, sometimes the trackpad stops working. The touchscreen works, but not the trackpad. Any solution?
fixed :)

How do I keep the kext files up to date? There was a github link in the post, but there are no instructions on how to use it. I added my clover + kext files on my EFI partition if it makes any difference.

Also, for me the keyboard still doesn't work on cold boots (even after copying to L/E).

Overall amazing guide, and gestures are amazing

There Is a Utility Kext Updater.
It is working fine :p

I have tried this Guide and my XPS had a lot of errors.
So i tried a Chinese one:
https://github.com/jardenliu/XPS15-9560-Mojave?files=1

Which also did not work for me.
But after combining a few Files and change a few things everything worked.

I have everything installed in Clover/kexts Folder.
But my Trackpad is working every boot. Never had an Not working trackpad.
And i didn’t even installed the Kext to L/E.

I will upload my files later.

But for you, repairing permissions could fix your system.

A lot of errors like what? Mine is working out of the box. Anything I should look out for?
