I use Dell 1560 m.2 card ( Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter) for wifi/BT so in the kext folder and in config you will see a bunch of kexts with BRCM word appearing in their name.
Thank you very much for sharing Rajkhand, rrviega and rramón
I have managed to change from clover to oc and I have dw1560 running in big sur

I have the same configuration as you
but my d1560 card doesn't work
with clover and catalina if it works
with OC and catalina does not work
with clover and OC and big sur does not work
use AirportBrcmFixup.kext from my EFI Folder as you are suppose to remove a kext from the plugin folder of this kext.

If this is your card and is working it should work with my setting
this is my card specification as per Hackintool

Updated to 0.6.2 + Kexts + Open Canopy GUI. Tested on Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 (19H2) with F13 BIOS and SMBIOS 19,1. IGPU + GPU (rx 580 8gb). DRM Content on Safari 14 (Mojave/Catalina/Big Sur) is broken even on some "real" macs. Use another web browser instead to avoid this issue (with shikigva=80).


I'm glad you solved your problem. Sorry for my absense, friend.

boot smoothly rrviega, thanks!

I have a problem though from a long time and never got rid of it and start thinking it's hardware related. Randomly after wake up by keyboard I get distorted/cracking up audio I've attached a recording I made with my phone mic. at the same time I also get error in the IOJones/IORegistry like in the pictures. It looks like the USB keyboard disconnect and reconnect all the time. It goes away with reboot

Do you have hint that could help me figure it out

@diamonddust

Have you tried out every single alcid suitable for 300-series boards?

If not head over to Dortania‘s guide to see which ID‘s can be used, try them out one by one and check if the problem persists.

Thanks for the heads up, it's ok to edit directly the DeviceProperties right? I'll start with the 5 that I used before

I am on OC 0.6.3 and I have problem with the latest update of appleALC.kext and lilu.kext but let me explain I detail. Recently the following Kent which I use are updated
I have BCM4352 Broadcom card.
Airportbrcmfix
AppleALC
Lilu
Whatevergreen
Virtualsmc & sensonsor

If I update all, my Bluetooth doesn’t function and booting takes very long time, in verbose mode I saw that it is trying different channels for appleHDA. Then I tried installing it one after another appleALC alone no sound device and with airportbrcmfix works with old lilu. whatevergreen there is no errors.
In short latest lilu and appleALC gives problems
Anyone having this problems?

hi,

I am on the F13 BIOS on the Z370WIFI. I am not able to get the BIOS to identify the UEFI on the USB disk. I have used the EFI from the post #873 above.

I understand on page 88 there is some reference to some mysery Bootx64.efi which is no longer available for download (links are dead). I thought this was some version of https://github.com/datasone/grub-mod-setup_var, so I took the pain of recompiling the EFI from scratch, but in vain (still wont boot) to this EFI.

Can someone post a link to a working Bootx64.efi which enables the shell which enables the user to make the changes suggested in #505,

Code:
setup_var 0x5A4 0x0
setup_var 0x507 0x1

I am trying to install OC latest with BigSur...

I think you are doing something wrong as the EFI for OC 0.6.4 works perfectly with BIOS 13. In OC you don’t require the special bootx64.efi
