Speaking out loud to inanimate objects is strange. It could be my generation...

The problems listed here are likely to be experienced by anyone installing macOS Sierra 10.12 on a laptop.

SysPrefs -> Trackpad is empty

You can work around by copying the prefpane for the trackpad from 10.11.

Details here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-trackpad-preference-pane-is-blank.199946/


SysPrefs -> Display may fail with an error

Affects only certain laptops. No clear pattern yet.


Run Apps from Anywhere is now missing from SysPrefs -> Security & Privacy -> General

If you had "Anywhere" already selected, upon updating to 10.12, it will still be available. But if you did a fresh install, this option is no longer present.

Never mind though, you can enable it in Terminal:
Code:
sudo spctl --master-disable


VoodooPS2Controller.kext versions prior to 1.8.24 will cause a KP

Update to 1.8.24.


Caps lock is unreliable

Using VoodooPS2Controller.kext, you will notice the capslock key is unreliable.


Karabiner is broken

Ouch! I really like that app. Hopefully it is fixed soon with an update.


Brightness and Volume keys will not work

It is some sort of change in the IOHIKeyboard base class. Maybe we will know more when Apple releases updated source code.

For now, use the menu bar to adjust volume and you can use Brightess by bergdesign to similarly adjust the brightness via the menu bar.

Some audio codecs will require an additional patch (AppleHDA)

If you are using target codec 0x11d4198b, you may need to also zero out codec compare 0x11d4198a (a new supported codec in 10.12).

eg. in KextsToPatch:
Comment: 0x11d4198a to zero
MatchOS: 10.12.x
Name: AppleHDA
Find: <8a19d411>
Replace: <00000000>


Broadcom WiFi BCM94352 requires an additional patch

The patch was created by the-darkvoid.

eg. in KextsToPatch:
Comment: AirPortBrcm4360 - fcvo, 10.12.x (credit the-darkvoid)
MatchOS: 10.12.x
Name: AirPortBrcm4360
Find: <81f952aa 00007529>
Replace: <81f952aa 00006690>

Graphics boot glitch patch for 10.12

A new patch is required.

eg. in KextsToPatch:
Comment: Boot graphics glitch, 10.12.dp1 (credit denskop)
MatchOS: 10.12.x
Name: IOGraphicsFamily
Find: <01000075 25>
Replace: <010000eb 25>


new USB port limit patch

A new patch is required. Keep in mind the port limit patch is for temporary use only. You should plan on creating a custom SSDT to configure USBInjectAll.kext such that the port limit patch is not needed.

eg. in KextsToPatch:
Comment: change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)
MatchOS: 10.12.x
Name: AppleUSBXHCIPCI
Find: <83bd74ff ffff10>
Replace: <83bd74ff ffff1b>


New patch for SMBIOS whitelist AirportBrcm4360 abgn WiFi

eg. in KextsToPatch:

Comment: AirPortBrcm4360 whitelist patch (board-id), 10.12.dp1, credit RehabMan
MatchOS: 10.12.x
Name: AirPortBrcm4360
Find: <31db4c3b 7dd87512>
Replace: <31dbffc3 90909090>
After direct update everything working fine only trackpad is empty but I solved that problem. I also update voodoops2controller 1.8.24 its working fine, Brightness key has working fine but Audio keys are not working.
my old patched AppleHDA( Codec CX20590) not working so right now I am using voodooHDA, should I need to re-patched AppleHDA ?
