Hi! Did you have problems with the “white list”? Or you just changend you’re wifi card without problems and everything worked?
I can happily report that as of 20190129, on BIOS version 1.07, there are no issues using a Dell DW1560 on the Yoga 730.

Oh thanks God! Can you post the ssdt patched for the bluetooth injection on this laptop? Please, I’ll thank you so so so much!

This problem is covered in my Post #16. You need to make sure your USB ports are properly patched; you can read how I did it in Posts #23-28, or follow this guide.

Dear Sir:
The solution you said is to replace the hardware first? (Broadcom BCM94352Z DW1560 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN + Bluetooth 4.0 M.2 NGFF mini Card).
Thank you very much anyway!

You just need to replace the wifi card (it also includes the bluetooth chip inside it). I did it three days ago and I can say it works perfectly!

hello, I'm not new to hackintosh topic (already running flawless on HP Elitebook 840 G4), but I'm facing some difficulties on my new Yoga 730 15 2018.
  1. Sleep not working - screen turns black and no wake up possible.
  2. Trackpad working with all gestures, but I have issue with buttons. No possibility to press left button and move with other finger. Right button not working (for right click only two finger tap works).

Lacedaemon, can you share your latest clover directory?

Hi guys!
I am so very thankul for your work.
I basically just copied the Clover EFI zip file form the first post and installed Mojave 14.3 and its FINE (except Bluetooth and WiFi but a dw1560is on its way).
The only thing i am unhappy with is that i have to disable sgx as i like to use the fingerprint reader in windows 10. Is there any solution ? I AM able to use Mojave with intel trust ENABLED so its just sgx.

P.S. i am dualobooting with clover of course and i can even start my w10 under Fusion on hackintosh fpr a quick shot :)

P.P.S. it seems none of the "usually working" USB2Ethernet Adapters work, is there any special problem with that on hackintosh ? They all work without additional installs on my high sierra MacBook Pro...

P.P.P.S. A TB3 eGPU case also works fine except there are no OSX drivers for the RTX 2060 yet, arghhh...

For those of you with issues where the installer reboots abruptly while formatting the disk or writing files out, in any phase of the install, the Samsung drive that shipped with my 730-15IKB (15” variant of this machine) was causing the issue. I replaced the disk with another NVMe drive from a different vendor and everything started working immediately. Hopefully this information helps others in the future, as I struggled for two straight days of trying different Aptio memory fix files in vain trying to get my machine to stop spontaneously rebooting (-v and debug=0x100 would never give output at the time the reboots happened, so I had nothing to go on).

Hello, I have a Yoga 730 13-IWL with screen IPS Full HD (1 920 x 1 080) 33,78 cm (13,3”) . The hardware is identical withe dragonfly laptop, except the CPU which is an i5-8265U.
I managed to install Mojave by using Fake GPU 0X12345678.
Then on my hard drive I installed clover and your EFI folder. I can not start, unfortunately. The laptop screen remains black.
If I plug an external screen with HDMI to USBC, it works. I have a Intel UHD620 GPU with acceleration.
I tried using AppleBacklightFixup + SSDT-PNLF but it does not work. I have also tried to change the GPU with Hackintool for iris 655 and the laptop screen occasionally turns on with low brightness.
Does anyone have any advice? Thank you :)
