can you elaborate on what wa done to make brightness keys work natively without app for key mapping?

I can not answer your question directly; but I've disabled all those modifications as I wanted to add my own key combinations and macros to the function keys. I used Karabiner of MacOS its OpenSource

Hi guys, I need some help.
Everything works great on my 9560 except when I plug and unplug power, the computer will restarts after few minutes.
I'm using 3.4 and followed every step OP posted.
The only thing I changed in config.plist is kexts to Patch:
IONVMeFamily - find F6C1100F 85410100 00 - replace F6C1010F 85410100 00
without this I can't boot.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know how to get the USB ports working on a dell TB16 Dock? I can output 4k@60Hz through Displayport, but the USB ports won't work at all using either SSDT-TYPC, SSDT-TB3-V1, or nothing at all. All SSDT-TYPC does is crash the os when I unplug it.

Are you not using APFS? Still using HFS? If so you'll need the HFS driver.

Hi,

Thanks blazinsmokey and everyone working on this thread.
everything works well except 2 issues.
1. bluetooth will be unavailable
Sleep is working fine and bluetooth also works fine from wake up when the laptop lid is opened.
Sleep is also working fine while the laptop lid closed and with only 1% or 0% battery lost, but the bluetooth will be unavailable after a long time sleeping when wakeup by open the laptop lid.

2. can only wakeup with power button, can't wake up with keyboard, just to confirm with you, if it's expected.

Does anyone have these problems?

So, I recently got a TB16 dock yesterday and it's actually working well out of the box. First time I used it, all the USB and ethernet worked after a while they stopped working but I did a reboot and plugged the TB16 back in at the Clover screen and all was good. I'm using SSDT-TYPC so I know I'm not doing true TB, but I don't have any TB peripherals right now anyway. I'm going to play around with it a but and press my luck to see if I can see if there are any limits with it. I'll report back and provide more info.

What do you mean with Bluetooth will be unavailable?


did you try masking pin 54 and 55 on the dw1830? sounds like the issue I was having with dw1830. maybe try masking the Wifi/ bluetooth disable lines

Hm, since I got a lot of problems with the DW1830 for a really long time, I ordered a DW1560 from Dell a while ago (costs 20 Bucks).
But Bluetooth still doesn’t work with the DW1560.
