Hi Guys,
Yesterday I successfully managed to install a hackintosh on my 9560. Its my first time and Im loving it.
I used another Clover to install the hackintosh and now I want to update to the V3.4 Clover mentioned in this post.

Im a newbie to hackintosh and it would be really helpful if someone can help me on how to update the kexts and others files provided in Clover V3.4 zip.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

This is explained in OP

after updating to 10.14.6 multitouch (and so on - gestures) stopped working. tried clover 3.4 from this theme, and tried to update VoodooI2C to latest version - but no luck. Is anyone solved this problem ?

UPDATE: rebuilding kextcache solved problem

Hello guy,
Ive reinstalled 10.14.6 completely using the Clover v3.4. Im having a problem with the screen. Whenever I try to maximize a window, it stutters or flickers. In the previous version it ran pretty smooth but now Im facing this problem. Any help is appreciated.
Thank you.

I've made a small ssdt patch, in order to remap caps lock to f19 (i'm using caps lock in order to change input source and mojave-embedded functionality for changing input source with caps lock works unreliable for me) and swap alt and win key ( so win key will act as cmd key on mac). All that you need - place .aml file into CLOVER/ACPI/patched. After this you can set caps lock to change input source in keyboard settings.

Ok guys after using my Hackintosh on my 9560 for a good week now. I only have 2 issues that are bugging me, 1 is a little bit more problematic that the other. It is with the Dell TB16 Dock.

1. My USB ports don't work on the dock(not a major problem but id love to get this working 100%)
2. My NIC card on the dock shows up in preferences as USB 10/100/1000 and it shows cable is disconnected, when a cable is connected. This one is more of a problem, as sometimes I need to be connected to my works LAN.

If anyone has ANY experience getting the dock to work 100% please enlighten me as i am stumped. :)

Thanks for being such a great community!!!

What do you by 'listed'?

If I am understanding your question, then maybe the following screenshot will help. This is my own EFI folder, which I use to boot my Filevault drive every day.

Thanks again sir, got FV2 working with your help. Only issue that I'm facing is that the trackpad isn't working at the Preboot FileVault screen. Other than that, fully functioning. :thumbup:

Done, got iMessage and Facetime working perfectly with NullEthernet. Thanks sir.
Could you help me with installing null ethernet? I installed the NullEtherent.kext using Kextbeast. What's the next step? Should I apply the patch mention in the link, If so how do I do it? I'm currently using Clover 3.4 from here. Please help me. Been on it for a week.

NullEthernet.kext must be installed under /Library/Extensions folder, not your EFI Kexts folder.

You'll have to inject the kext with KextBeast and copy the SSDT-RMNE.aml file to your EFI>CLOVER>ACPI>Others folder. Then you need to delete all your network entries in settings and delete your networkpreferences.plist file under /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist. Once done, unplug any WiFi dongles if applicable and reboot. Immediately after you must go to Settings>Network and click the "+" icon to add "Ethernet".

I'm using a wifi USB dongle(TP-link AC600 nano). So if I delete the networkpreferences.plist will the dongle work after plugging back in or should I reinstall the drivers again ?

I'm using the same dongle, the dongle will still work after you plug it in after deleting the networkpreferences.

I also recommend this to replace the ugly TP-Link icon - https://github.com/yunyu/OSXRealtekWifiIcons
