Also , the brightness slider it's not present even if I tried your patch..

You didn't follow the guide (AppleBacklight patch is missing from your config.plist).
Read here:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...rol-using-applebacklightinjector-kext.218222/

Sorry, this are the files that u requested. Also, I found another issue: if I open an app, the OS X it's very slow until it loads it..any ideas why? Also, I don't have my driver formatted as APFS+, it's as hfs+

Your setup is a mess (wrong kexts installed, kexts not installed properly, config.plist is a mess, etc).
Start over with the guide:

Also, read FAQ for other topics:

Use this in either /S/L/E, CLOVER kexts directory. Use layout-id 3. You may or may not require the attached Lilu. There is a minor bug, where sound doesn't work after waking. Just plug in and then plug out a AUX cable, and it'll start working. BTW, I have everything else working. Let me know if you need anything else.

kexts should be installed to /L/E

Hello almeidabr, does USB 3.0 work? I tested it and found that it only works on USB 2.0 devices, and same on Type-C.

RehabMan, Thanks!! I just follow your guide:
-EHC1->EH01 and EHC2->EH02 rename(in config.plist)
-install USBInjectAll.kext(I download the latest one)
-use the latest port limit patches in config_patches.plist
then it works magically:thumbup:

AND....
How to map the "screen brightness control function key" on my keyboard?
(Sorry for my poor English, I'm just a student from Taiwan.)

You are not done until you create a custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext...

Hello!

I once installed SIERRA (10.12) to my laptop whereas first on ssd came macOS and afterwards windows.
I needed like 2 weeks to accomplish this as these things are way out of my league and I barely got it working had stuff like brightness not work but that was ok for me.

Now I need to update sadly because of Xcode needing High sierra to be able to update through the app store.
I totally forgot how all worked and I can not find my resources and also people say with High sierra stuff is alot different.

I have this same Laptop with a little variation (512 GB ssd + 1TB hdd) rest should be the same I think.

I tried to follow your "guide" but I failed almost immediately. Now I tried creating the usb installer from my Sierra hackintosh.
I did follow TheRehabMans tutorial for that but I had problems when I was at clover EFI installer where I had to choose a driver for Drivers64UEFI so I chose two or so which seemed ok, idk for sure how to tell whats needed . One of them was like "Aptiodrv64" or similiar.

Now that part was already making me dizzy =D

Then I kinda just copied his config.plist and kexts into the clover efi on the usb. not sure what I'm doing again xD


Anyway now when I boot to the USB Clover it only shows me Windows EFI as boot partition.
BUT if I boot into my existant (on SSD) Clover it will show me Windows / macOS / macOS repair / macOS High Sierra Installer
boot partitions.
Why is that not working?


Then I started it from the SSD clover but got this https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...-only-ran-for-0-seconds-with-dual-gpu.233092/
and there I have totally zero ideas how to proceed. Its like alien language to me xD

Could one of you guys with the laptop who set it up guide me through or make a FULL guide?!

Thanks for the read. Good bye!

Edit : Just for clarification I am trying to install macOS High Sierra on this laptop by wiping the old Sierra one. Someone told me thats better and that the upgrade thing wont be a good idea.
