Work for me.
Can you share your codecommander.kext with me? I ran into a headphone audio problem and heard louder noise when playing a song.

What model of SSD are you using now? I want to add an NVME SSD to the 5570 hackintosh. But I don't know how to choose. I am a newbie
Any m.2 2280 PCIe either 3.0x4 or 3.0x2 should work except for EVO 970+ which is known to not work. macOS support only 4K block but atfs converts 512B to 4K block automatically. So no problem.

I am using local brand(Inland premium 512GB PCIe 3.0x4 sold by microcenter). It has 512B initial sector but atfs converted it to 4K. It’s now EFI 512B, macOS atfs 4K, windows 512B.

Dell 5570 supports maximum 512GB PCIe m.2 but I think it does not take the benefit of full 3.0x4 speed. My ssd supports 3.2GB read but benchmark shows only 2.0GB. I guess dell 5570 use only 2 lanes, i.e., 3.0x2.

@yoel07 , you are clearly not using my config.plist. You have modified it and it is a lot of mess there.
Same goes with your kexts folder. You cannot use oth fakesmc and virtualsmc. Choose one.

Thanks for sharing! At the same time you can use the above kext to get the headset function.
