Hi,

I did not manage to get ALC269 to work. With not work I mean that the Audio Volume setting in the top panel is greyed out and there are no audio output and no input devices are listed in the system preferences.

I started with toleda's before installing audio guide and then realised that ALC269 will not be compatible.
Tried: AppleHDA Patcher by Mickey1979. Tried to follow all explanations, still not sure if I did the right thing. What I did:
- Apply generated patches to DSDT.aml
- Put AppleHDA.kext to /Library/Extensions
- rebuild kextcache
- Applied created config.plist
- But CodecCommander.kext into EFI/Clover/kexts/Other

Did a reboot.

Please, find attached all files requested by FAQ: Problem Reporting.
Please find my systems description in my profile.

Thanks for the support and great guides!

EDIT: I do not know how to find out if I have ALC269 VC or VB and V1 or V2 or V3.
I read that my ID is ALC269 VC when googling it, but I do not know if this is reliable. I tried VC/V1 and VC/V3 but both did not work out or I did something wrong. Please if anyone knows, can you tell me how to reliably find out if I have VC|VB and which version V1|V2|V3?
EDIT2: Replaced 4 .zip files with 1 .zip file for more convenient use.

Your patched AppleHDA is installed to the wrong location.
Replacements of system kexts must be installed to the original location, /S/L/E, not /L/E.

Also...
You should try with FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext.

Thanks for the answer.

After reading a lot in your guides, I realised, that I made several mistakes on the way (mixing different approaches, installing kexts to Clover/kexts, ... many more). So I decided to start from scratch and formatted my disk and created a new installer USB Stick.

I have now the problem, that I reach the installer, but I do not have trackpad working neither does my USB mouse working. No pointing device. When I reach the step where I can select the disk where OSX should be installed, I can not select it by only using the keyboard.

Please find the EFI folder of my installer USB stick attached.

Patched ACPI not needed for the installer (remove ACPI/patched/DSDT.aml).
Keep in mind it is possible many USB ports won't work until you properly configure USB, sometimes for the installer, better without USBInjectAll.kext, sometimes better with it.
If you have only one USB port working (eg. the one with the USB installer), you might use an external USB hub to connect a USB keyboard/mouse to the same port.

Your profile needs fixing as per FAQ:

Thank you for the answer.

Just wanted to note if someone finds this thread, that I got audio working on 10.13.4 on Tuxedo InfinityBook 13v2 (which is some kind of Clevo rebrand) with ALC269 VC V3. I did it now via AppleALC.kext. Steps I had to do:

  1. Remove all changes from previous tryouts and remove all Audio kext except original AppleHDA.kext from /System/Library/Extensions and /Library/Extensions
  2. Download AppleALC.kext (https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC) and put it into /EFI/Clover/kexts/Others/
  3. Make sure to have also Lilu.kext in /EFI/Clover/kexts/Others
  4. Try according to your codec the listed audio layout-ids here (https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC/wiki/Supported-codecs) by:
    1. Inject layout-id in /EFI/Clover/clover.plist using either Xcode or TextEdit (CloverConfigurator not recommended)
    2. Reboot your system
    3. Check with IORegistryExplorer by searching HDEF if the layout-id was injected properly
    4. Check if audio works with it (if yes go to 5, otherwise try next layout-id and go back to 4.1 until you find the one working)
  5. If audio works install CodecCommander.kext (https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-eapd-codec-commander/downloads/) into /Library/Extensions by doing:
    1. sudo cp -R ~/Desktop/CodecCommander.kext /Library/Extensions/
    2. sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions/CodecCommander.kext
    3. sudo touch /Library/Extensions
    4. sudo kextcache -i /
  6. Reboot

Note: A good way to find very detailed audio codec information is to create an Ubuntu usb-stick and boot in try-out mode. Then:
  1. Open a terminal
  2. cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 > ~/Desktop/codec0_info.txt
  3. Now on your Desktop you find a codec0_info.txt with very detailed informations
Thanks for the help, I learned a lot. Problem is solved.
