not at the moment, still on the trip
ok I'm finally back home

@dmitry_matora have you any tb3 device to test thunderbolt i remember you mentioned it before?
I can't find my TB3->TB2 adapter at the moment
I've tested Anker A8303 USB 3.0 Data and Ethernet Hub for USB-C Devices
1567951281180.png1567951391917.png
Couldn't get it running with SSDT-TB3-V1.aml
With SSDT-TYPC.aml it works (with hotplug) but hub is detected as USB2.0 Limiting speed of both Ethernet and USB devices

If anyone has ANY experience getting the dock to work 100% please enlighten me as i am stumped. :)
I'm thinking about purchasing Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD
It should have native Ethernet support and people say EarPods volume control buttons work when plugged into this dock (and connected to Macbook)
Will update on my experience once I get it.

Is anyone having the same problem? My audio works from the internal speakers but when I plug in headphones, there isn't any sound or I have to turn up the volume all the way to barely hear anything.

Thunderbolt TW16 Dock into two 4K screens (at the moment one is at 60hz the other at 30hz because I dont have a mini Display cable). Works and charges laptop as well. Very happy. Hopefully I will be able to run the second monitor at 60HZ as soon as I get the right cable :)

Dual 4k @60hz each confirmed to work over TB16 Dock Station using DisplayPort and MiniDisplay Port cables. This is both for MacOS and Windows. If anyone wants to use the dock in that configuration is perfect. Make sure you update all Bios, drivers etc... in Windows before trying to get the dock to work!

OK now THAT is cool. Which SSDT implementation did you go with here?

blazinsmokey,

Would you or anyone else do a quick walkthrough tutorial on how to install the SSDT-typec.aml or the ssdt-tb3.aml on clover? I had to redo my Hackintosh and that is the last step but i cant find anything on how to accomplish this :(

@nikoel I would love to get a look at your CLOVER dir if you can get to it. I've had a TB-16 from the beginning and it is pretty much useless except I use it to charge my laptop so I can use the power supply on the road. I still have to plug in my monitor and USB hub to the laptop to get those working.

Alright Ladies

I'm sharing my entire Bootable Disk. To help anyone trying to pinpoint why it's working from memory I have done the following but I also did many other things and reversed many others - (for me my dock worked first go so I did not ask any questions)

Configuration:
XPS 9560, 4k, i7, 32GB RAM, 1TB HD, 97Wh battery, MCB14,1 Configuration, Vents taped, Vrams padded - Undervolt GPU -100mv, Undervolt Processor -135mv - Battery performance shithouse at 5 hours maximum (which is still better than windows for some reason, i gave up)

Dual Boot Windows 10 - In windows 10 Speedshift is enabled, custom GPU frequency curve via Afterburner undervolt as above with Turbo Clocks limits disabled and locked, All core boost at 3.8gHz - I get 6000 in 3Dmark Firefight (whatever it's called) benchmark

thunderbolt drivers from intel installed via intel driver updater I have thunderbolt icon in my windows 10 tray when a thunderbolt device is connected

all updates were run in windows prior to the connection of the dock - in windows. Restarted into windows multiple times

Cleaned NvRam like 4 times after

Then ran mac os and installed SwitchResX and configured everything to work. Everything works including coming back from sleep. However it does it's screen turn-off, turn-on, turn-off dance for 20 seconds before being usable. Good Enough

Oh right my folder. Here. If someone can share how they got iCloud to work without Ethernet I would appreciate it very much. Like seriously would go a long way
