@Qola currently its at a very basic phase, it can recognize the hardware and get the appropriate config for the device. Programming is slow for now because I'm trying to figure out what each little puzzle piece does in the bigger picture, but once I start to get an intuition development should speed up rapidly.

A short time ago, I bought my new Zenbook Flip notebook with a AX201 Intel WiFi card in it. Is there any chance it will work with the supported Linux driver on MacOS? Or I want to test first with running your project so I can post the driver results here if that helps.

My project isnt done yet so you wont be able to test that, and that wont be ready for the next few months. Plus for now it will only be supporting MVM cards (7000,8000,9000) series from what I can remember. DVM will probably be supported at a later point but for now it reduces the code base by a decent size, making it a bit easier to implement.

Hello again @champgoblem Have you tried posting in r/hackintosh or the hackintosh discord server for some help in your development? They might be able to help.

Just wanted to say thanks for all your time and dedication to this project. I have an Intel 8265 in my Dell XPS 13 which is soldered to the motherboard. Eagerly awaiting this project :)

I'm currently on 10.15 with no real issues aside from the wifi. I'm using a TP-Link micro adapter plugged into a USB-C to A adapter. Works for now but getting the built in card working would be amazing =)

Thanks again!

Hi guys! There's some good news. Someone made a driver for intel except it is quite unstable but you can now connect to the internet. Some users say that it is best to try the kext with 7xxx versions instead of 8xxx/9xxx because of it being more stable than newer versions. This requires Mojave/Catalina installed as they made the driver for Mojave and may not work with lower macOS versions. Check this github issue here, it's a thread and worth reading. Scroll down the issue to download the latest kext rev.


EDIT: The driver is currently closed-sourced as per what the users are saying.

@cmulittlechild 7260 also works fine. However if I put the laptop to sleep and open it again the kext stops working. As far as I know 7xxx works best and 8xxx with few crashes and 9xxx with instant crash.
