Everything works except for audio which worked in Beta 1 (ALC 889) with the usual fix.
Update: I'm in shock audio works with the AppleHDA.kext!!
I found out by accident . Returned machine to stock for the audio before trying the new fixes and sound started right up, after a restart, very odd but great. It does pop loud at startup otherwise works well.

My laptop works with MacOS Sierra, the installation was smooth. The instillation procedure was the same as MacOS Sierra except for getting newer VoodooPS2.kext, updating clover, and adding a patch to my config.plist to make the Wireless card (Dell DW1560) work. Everything except webcam and touchscreen work (I didn't make a USB injector for El Capitan or Sierra and the two can be fixed with that).

BETA 1 crushed my WIFI and Audio. I got Audio working after some post installations. WIFI not.
BETA 2 crushed my Audio (ALC898) again. Can´t get it to work again. If anyone has an idea - thank you a lot.

UPDATE:
Now it works. I installed the original, native AppleHDA again. Ran the script from

And installed ALC898 from Multibeast. Audio is fine now.

But still no WIFI since BETA 1
