Unfortunately, the repo does not have Y530 support in the mean time. However, there’s a possibility I might add support for it sometime in the future if I get enough data for the Y530 model.
Question: is your lock screen working ? Cause every time I try to lock then screen stays lock down mode few seconds then goes black screen, any problem in your end ?

I have successfully installed macOS Mojave according to this guide on my Y520. Sound works with AppleALC method injected on layout 28 (successfully switches on headphones and back, no lagging), IntelHD630 works (solved 7mb issue), also Bluetooth works on factory installed Intel 8265 WiFi/Bluetooth Card (successfully connected to AirPods and mobile internet on my iPhone via Bluetooth. So, there is a question is Wifi will work if Bluetooth worked?

Gentlemen! I have the following issues to fix:

  1. No keyboard backlight on Y720. Other function keys are working (Brightness, Volume)
  2. Strange behavior AirDrop: I can send files to my Hack from an iPhone but not from the Hack to the iPhone. AirDrop contacts on the hack are only visible when I search for AirDrop contacts on my iPhone. If I turn off Blutooth on the iPhone the contacts on the hack disappear. The iPhone itself is never visible on the Hack and Handoff also works only from iPhone to Hack, but not vice versa. Continuity Camera is not able to establish a connection to the iPhone. I have a BCM94352Z installed.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Has anyone thought about trying to get the keyboard backlight to work? Would it be possible?

Hello and thnx for creating such great guide @RehabMan, @the-braveknight.
Following your guide I created my first hackintosh with ease. I had a few problems though, I had to disable my Discrete graphics card to be able to boot up or it would reset before loading (black screen with apple icon and loading bar) ends.
After all I have one problem unsolved, though my blue-tooth works fine and connected to my blue-tooth mouse with no problems, yet I can't connect to wi-fi. Do u have any suggestions on solving this issue?
And I have 2 question:
  1. can I update this hackintosh?
  2. I did not set SMBIOS (actually idk how to do it), is it important to set it? if yes can u explain why or when it is important?
Thnx a lot.
