For anyone still following this that was having issues with USB-C hotplug on the Thunderbolt port, this technique here solves the problem. (Assuming it also works for TB3 proper, but I don’t have any TB3 devices.)

Hi,
now hotplug is possible.
With usb-c accessories you can hotplug and unplug.
With eGPU it is possible to hotplug but no unplug.
To do this you need to add the attached pach to your plist and add the two ssdt in clover / acpi / patched.
Delete ssdt V1
let me know if it works for you.

I've been trying to get OSX running on a 15" Spectre x360 with i7 8750h off and on over the last few of months. I got successful install of Mojave running but lots of components were not working. That was back in Oct. Just gone back to it but it's not booting anymore and I'm not really sure whats wrong or where I got to! The process of getting this working is tough and if you step away from it for a while it is kind of like starting again...

A note for anyone curious: I upgraded the RAM to 32GB in this machine with no problem—it worked perfectly and was relatively cheap. (I bought 2x16 Corsair chips, if you’re curious.) I’m also looking into upgrading the SSD to 2TB in the coming months, though I haven’t tried it yet and am hoping for prices to drop a little.

Also, I recently bought a 4K monitor and have been running into issues plugging it in using both DisplayPort and HDMI. HDMI works after modifying WhateverGreen to support 2048MB on the iGPU, but only upon first boot; it stops working after a sleep/wake cycle. However, just plugging in a USB-C to DisplayPort cable causes the machine to restart. If anyone has cracked that nut, let me know.

I’ve been trying a number of things on my end. I’m using the Thunderbolt 3 fix I laid out above, but also following the Framebuffer patching guide. That fixed some slowness issues with HDMI, but it doesn’t work on every profile—I had to switch to Macbook15,2 to get it to work.

Will offer a current Clover EFI when I get a free moment. On 10.14.6.

Hi, I succeeded setting up my hackintosh mainly thanks to your guide, and the Vice article, thank you for your work :)
I will try to update to catalina and install the Intel 9260 which seems to be compatible in catalina.

EDIT:
No trouble updating to Catalina 10.15.5 and using the wifi card with the AppleIntelWifi.kext
