You just use Xcode to build it, the build is somewhere in the developers folder of Xcode. You can also find it in products in the Xcode file viewer panel on the left. I did build it thought and I attached the kext but I didn't try yet.

I'm interested in helping with this project.

Do you have spec sheets for any of these intel cards so we don't have to reverse engineer the linux code? I'd be specifically interested in the 8265.

Since intel hardware is strictly closed source, there is probably no other way...

This thread is probably very dead and apologies for being late to the party.
Im interested in how @ydeng managed to reverse the headers from the IO80211Family kext. If anyone could give me any pointers (or links to articles) on the subject I would be very grateful.

With so many incomplete attempts at getting Intel WiFi cards running on Mac OS I've been looking into how each project is attempting to fix the problem in an attempt to *hopefully* use some of these ideas to produce a working solution. Obviously no promises, but for now running on Mojave, I need some help to update the header files in order to get some of these products compiling and running on the latest builds.

С таким количеством неполных попыток получить Intel WiFi карты, работающие на Mac OS я изучал, как каждый проект пытается решить эту проблему в попытке * надеюсь * использовать некоторые из этих идей для получения рабочего решения.

Hello, sorry for my english, whats help u need? i have intel ac3160
