no, InjectKexts -> Detect
Oops my bad :)

I changed it to "Detect" but the camera still does not work. I appreciate the guidance though :thumbup:

I'm just experimenting with my camera on a much older system (Dell Latitude E6410 running Mojave 10.14.6 as a MacBookPro6,2). On my laptop, IORegistryExplorer shows my camera as "Integrated Webcam" where your camera USB Interface Name is "HD Camera." Otherwise, our IORegistry entries for the camera look the same.

How are you testing your camera? If I open Facetime, my camera is detected and works.

I tried opening Photobooth and Facetime both only show a black screen and after a few seconds it shows me an error. I also tried using the CamerControl App (I read in a different thread that that was a good step) but same black screen issue.

@NONITS I noticed that you are using USBInjectAll.kext but I don't see a custom SSDT-UIAC.aml. Is that intentional?

I placed the ssdts that hackintool created per the custom ssdt tutorial I followed. Should I be adding that SSDT?

@NONITS I have not used hackintool (but I have heard about it), so I'm the wrong person to ask. If you use hackintool, do you still need USBInjectAll.kext?

EDIT: I just did a very quick read of Dallansky's Hackintool Tutorial. If you know what you're doing with this tool, then ignore me; however, it looks to me like there may be multiple ways to use the tool and one way requires you to delete USBInjectAll.kext after you detect your USB ports. Hopefully someone who is familiar with hackintool can chime in and advise you. The guide also mentions a USBPorts.kext file (generated by hackintool) that I don't see in your kexts folder. Again, if you know what you're doing with the tool, ignore me. If you don't, this might be a place to start looking.

if you use USBPorts.kext then you do not need USBInjectAll.kext

if you use SSDT for USB ports, then you do need USBInjectAll.kext

I didn't see USBPorts.kext in the kexts folder and I didn't see the SSDT for USB ports in the ACPI/patched folder. Is it possible that something is missing?

yes, you need to create them using the hackintool

@Feartech It might be better for you to look in @NONITS ' debug files (specifically at his kexts folder and ACPI/patched folder). I haven't used hackintool before, so it's quite possible that I didn't see the files because I don't know what I'm looking for.
