Thanks Rehabman. Audio is working again. I had uninstalled codeccommander and booted without caches. Reinstalled AppleHDA and it works well now.
The headphone jack sounds echoey when I plug in my earpiece, however, if I plug a "powered" speaker or if I connect a cable to my HDTV, the sound coming from the headphone jack sounds normal.
Is this also related to codeccommander?

You likely need CodecCommander to fix your headphones.

It got it to work. Thank you Rehabman for all the help.
I think I'm going to call it off for now. It's been months of trial and error! Too much for my non techy brain :lol:

What works:
- Brightness
- Audio (Native) ALC255 (Patched AppleHDA)
- Graphics
- VGA Output
- Touchpad (works but it's kind of limited)
- USB 2.0 & 3.0
- Webcam
- Sleep (when closing laptop's lid)

What doesn't work:

- WiFi (only with USB dongle) - I'm about to purchase: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IFYEYXC/?tag=tonymacx86com-20
- HDMI (Audio)
- HDMI (When I connect to projector or HDTV the screen goes black and it shuts down)

If you lead me to the right direction for future troubleshooting, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks again!

EDIT:
HDMI (Video) works!
only thing to fix would be HDMI audio in order for it to be 100% native!

Look forward to your comments.
Thank you!
