Anyone tried OpenCore instead of Clover on this laptop?
I’ve wanted too. I’m ordering an external hard drive and may try with OpenCore.

Thanks this worked for updating my blade 15 gtx 1070 but now my trackpad doesnt work. I've tried everything including repatching my DSDT (did the DSDT dump also)

Anyone know what it could be?
Sorry, so to clarify did you repatch your GPIO pinning via Stonevil’s Hackintosh guide?
If not, give that a try first and then can you attach your EFI and L/E. Thanks!

I am stuck on the step of setting the System Agent Configuration to [USER] in AMIBCP. Whenever I go to save the file, it says "error occurred in BIOS rebuild (#0000D00D). Does anyone know why this is happening?

Hi @SimplyNick, would you mind telling me what your BIOS, EC, and MCU FW versions are? Make sure they are up to date. Also note, if you are following Stonevil's guide, you will have a different versions from that guide so go to Razer Blade site and find your BIOS/Firmware upgrades if you have not done so yet.

If that does not work, try to use a more up to date version of AFUWINGUI. I do know that I used the version that Stonevil provided and it works just fine for me. https://github.com/stonevil/Razer_Blade_Advanced_early_2019_Hackintosh

Also, make sure to run the program as Admin. Let us know if this helps. GL

Haven't tried myself but I think it's interesting. Although if you boot Windows through OpenCore as well it gets all the DSDT patches too. So Razer Synapse might not work and also the dGPU because we disable it. But I didn't dive into OpenCore yet so there might be ways around that.

I am using the most up-to-date BIOS available for my Blade. The BIOS version is 1.08 and the EC version is 1.02. Both of these are up-to-date.

Just wanted to give an update on why my trackpad stopped working. After hours and hours of troubleshooting, moving kexts around from l/e, etc it ended up being the version of clover I was on. I reverted back to the clover version 2.4 r4701 (on r3habman's github) and viola it worked! The latest version I was using I think 5108? Everything was working except the trackpad.

https://github.com/n-d-k/OpenCorePkg this can solve dsdt thing on windows.
Please let know if you need any help on going with OpenCore, I'm really interested in it, but it seems way too hard to handle it on my own, can help though.

Very interesting, but I don't have the time to play with it at the moment unfortunately. But I'll keep it in mind.
