Hey, I'm trying to follow the steps on toleda's guide to get my audio working, but in the steps it shows I need to original AppleHDA.kext. I downloaded the install file, used pacifist, but am unable to locate the actual .kext file. I only end up with an exec file :S




EDIT: Reinstalled Mojave to get original AppleHDA.kext

Attached is original AppleHDA.kext for macOS Mojave 10.14

unable to locate the actual .kext file.
A kext is a directory consisting of many files as your screenshot shows
Use Pacifist/Extract as noted
Link goes to a deprecated thread

Much simpler to run the Mojave installer over the current install, automatically restores native Mojave AppleHDA.kext

Thanks for posting this. I don't know why there are so many guides with thousands of words in that don't post the actual kext when this is exactly just what most people need.

It is not a good idea to install files from unverified sources, you could be open to all kinds of malware.
It only takes a few minutes to extract from the installer yourself.
