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?

Got a lot of kernal panics :p
But it seems only I have this problem. So no need to look out for something.

But the positive thing I got from this. My trackpad is working without installing the Kext to L/E or S/L/E.

And with clover 3 (i think) USB C is also working very well. Only a third display is not working. Dual display is working.


And i have a hdcp error when I want to watch ITunes movies. But I am looking for a way to fix it. Because nobody else has this problem...

I have an XPS 9550 and I have the same problem sadly. It is an annoying problem and havent found any solution. I have tried the guide from here but nothing I try fixes it. 10.14.3 is a lot more stable and with Clover 4844 and latest kexts there is far less crashes. It might also fix VoodooPS2 on coldboot as I haven't had it happen to me since updating.

Anyone have any luck with multiple displays on the 9560? I can't seem to get the WD15/Intel 630 to do anything but mirror with two external monitors, lid closed. It's very frustrating.

I also still cannot get WD15's ethernet adapter working, despite it seeing it. I did some searches and have not found any solutions for either.
