Computer Specification
Hp Pavilion x360 13-s122ds
i3-6100U @2.3Ghz 12Gb RAM
No Idea about the chipset :)
HD520 (1366x768)
Dell Dw1560 aka BCM94352Z wifi
256GB SSD

Whats Working:

I have tested the following features:
- UEFI dual booting via Clover
- built-in keyboard (with special function keys)
- built-in trackpad (with gestures)
- native WiFi via BCM94352HMB
- Bluetooth (with handoff) using BCM94352HMB
- native USB3 hub without patches
- Audio with Voodoo (works okay)
- built-in mic
- built-in camera
- native power management
- battery status
- backlight controls with smooth transitions, save/restore across restart
- accelerated graphics for HD520including OpenCL
- Mac App Store working
- touchscreen (single touch only)
-sleep and wake up

Not tested/not working

The following features have issues, or have not been tested:
- Messages/FaceTime (not tested, see guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/general-help/110471-how-fix-imessage.html)
- some special Fkeys not working (??)
- card reader is not working
- HDMI video/audio with hotplug


Known Problems
There are no pressing issues. pretty sure these issues can be solved. Just need to spend some time
@todo
- USB 2.0 port, webcam ,BT,Touchscreen ports needs to be patched in USBInjectAll.kext.
- Wired LAN (too lazy to search internet, ill update about this over the weekend)
-cant right click/scrolling with touch screen

What you need

- The laptop
- OS X El Capitan or Yosemite downloaded from the Mac App Store
- 16GB USB stick ( i used usb 3.0 but usb 2.0 is recommended )
- Broadcom BCM94352(HMB) for native WiFi (i bought dell dw1560)


BIOS settings

To start, set BIOS to defaults.

Then insure:
- UEFI boot is enabled (its default)
- secure boot is disabled

Preparing USB and initial Installation

This guide for creating USB and installing using Clover UEFI works well for this laptop: http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...de-booting-os-x-installer-laptops-clover.html

-create USB using GPT
-use SATA-100-series-unsupported.kext
- GenericUSBXHCI.kext is not necessary with this laptop since AppleUSBXCHI.kext appears to work well natively. Also, GenericUSBXHCI.kext does not work on 10.11, so do not use it.

The installation will go without any issues and you should be able to boot without usb in minutes

Post Installation

1)Graphics

The Graphics should be working without any additional drivers. But you will notice graphic glitches in menu bar. There is no known fix for this.

Temporary fix: Sytem Preferences-->Display-->Color-->Select SRGBIEC61955-2.1.

2)WIFI
install FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext from here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Fake-PCI-ID

3)AUDIO-ALC282
Download:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/voodoohda/

Put kext into EFI/CLOVER/kext/Other
Go to System Preferences/Sound/Output/ --> select Speaker (Analog)

issues: The speaker output is not good.
If you want perfect audio then you should patch AppleHDA or you can request a patched AppleHDA from Here
http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293863-applehda-patch-requests/page-1
If you do get patched HDA please notify me, so that i can add it to the post

4)DSDT
Follow this guide to generate DSDT for your laptop
http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-patching-laptop-dsdt-ssdts.152573/

Note: I generated DSDT with the clover . While compiling it by following the guide, i found lot of error. And i commented all the errors. Then i placed the DSDT in EFI/clover/patched

5)Brightness Controls
Add "http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master" to sources in preferences of MaciAsl. And apply Brightness Fix patch to your DSDT.

And Install https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-intel-backlight/downloads kext

You can remap Brightness Keys under System Prferences/Keyboard/Shortcuts/Display

6)Battery Meter
Install this kext to get the battery meter working
https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-acpi-battery-driver/downloads

7)BT + WEBCAM +TOUCH SCREEN +USB2.0
These devices will not work by default.
You need to install the kext from here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All

The kext is not intended for long run. ill provide the patched kext once i get some time.(if you do it before me please let me know)

install https://github.com/the-darkvoid/BrcmPatchRAM/releases to get the Bluetooth working

Follow this guide to get the handoff working

Hi,

Can you see the attached image and tell me if this card will work with Pavilion x360 13-s102tu? I already bought the card but am yet to open my laptop to see if it is installable. In a dilemma after reading your post :|

BCM94352Z NGFF M.2 WiFi WLAN Bluetooth

What i wanted to know was can BCM94352Z NGFF M.2 be used in my laptop or will I need the HMB version, since themaskofwraith has alternatively used both card names - Computer Specification says its the Z version whereas later in the post he mentions HMB version to be working well, and once again mentions that he got the Dell DW1560 which is basically the Z version. So, I am confused which card I should have bought (Z or HMB).

His specs are same as mine apart from the screen, I have a full HD touch screen version.

Your computer is likely using WiFi M.2 (2230). But you should verify with physical inspection or by reading the service manual.
