@stonevil thanks man! -- can I use the same EFI folder as yours in the github or it has to be different?

I am trying to see if @suyukai method actually works and have finally installed Mojave on a pen drive using my friend's mac. I am trying to figure out how to go from here. He mentioned DiskGenius but I am not sure how to go from there.

Have anyone tried new kexts and/or Catalina public beta, did they fix the audio issue?
I currently am dual booting Mojave and the Catalina beta. I had to build Lilu, WhateverGreen, and AirportBrcmFixup(1.1.9 causes a kernel panic) kexts from github. I also had to update my clover to revision 4973 to boot. I also had to add FakePCIID, and BroadcomWiFiInjector to make wifi work again, but that breaks Bluetooth.

I highly recommend that if you choose to live dangerously to create a second APFS volume and dual boot. Catalina is very slow and I've had a few problems with applications.

Edit (6/27/19): After updating AppleALC from github, adding BrcmBluetoothInjector, updating BrcmPatchRam2 and BrcmFirewareRepo. I also updated NoTouchID. I fixed my Bluetooth, Audio(Still doesn't work if booted on battery) issue on Catalina. I previously switched to VirtualSMC since I have having issues with FakeSMC on Mojave. I switched back to FakeSMC which fixed the kernel panic I was getting on shutdown.

Edit : Fixed it.

@stonevil definitely a few other issues in the guide.

Guide mentions:

In Patch window on left panel scroll and find [gfx0] Disable from _INI (DSDT) and click Apply. Do not close window!

Options listed are [gfx0] Disable from _REG (DSDT) which shows as an applicable options
or [gfx0] Disable from _INI (SSDT) which does not show as applicable

your option seems to combine the two which isn't there.

NEXT


  • Click Compile button in toolbar. DSDT should complied without any issues.
  • Choose Save As… from File menu.
  • Down below in Save window select ACPI Machine Language Binary from File Format: menu. save as what exactly? because in the next line below it says to copy the newly created SSDT to the location listed. According to the instructions we were working on DSDT not SSDT so was there a rename needed?

  • if not where did SSDT get created? perhaps from origin? not specified.
  • Copy newly created file SSDT-12-OptTabl.aml to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
  • Does DSDT need to move to patched as well because that isn't mentioned either.
Next step is hot patch ACPI to disable Nvidia GPU in macOS for save battery and decrease overall heat.
Nvidia GPU disable
  • Open SSDT-12-OptTabl.dsl with MaciASL application.
  • Find this header

  • Find this line of code

  • Above this code, paste this line of code

Hi Guys so I have successfully been able to fix a lot of things and am at the final stretch. I was hoping If I could get help with Audio

1. My Speakers work but headphones do not.
2. Brightness is very jerky. Is everyone's brightness control like that? Shouldn't changing brightness be smoother.

Attached ioreg and debug file

Sorry, I can't check this or verify.
