I'm not under illusions that we'll approach the achievements of the Dell XPS 9350-60 userbase overnight, but this thread has not charted much progress history since highlighting the way to boot clover natively using the Linux renaming trick.

Actually I'm happy to report there has been a lot of successful developments with the new HP X360 devices (Envy and Spectre) in the last six moths, its just isn't consolidated into a single thread as its all still WIP .. you just need to search the forums for the info.

Almost all issues with the exception of TB hot swap have been resolved ..

Cheers
Jay

my 2 cents in my case: it appears to me the brightness fix doesn't work for high sierra, but works fine with sierra.

I am hoping someone have enough knowledge to come up with a full guide on every single tiny details, currently we are still have many folks have problems here and there.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

@jaymonkey Did you ever have any success with enabling the touchscreen on your HP Spectre? I've got a similar model and suspect most of the power usage by OS X is due to the touchscreen never powering down due to a lack of a kext controlling it.

@ddegrasse,

Since it was a low priority for me its kind-a-of been pushed to the bottom of my to do list, I did contact the developer of VoodooI2C and run some test and debug .. The good news is the Intel I2C driver is supported which has access to the touch screen and pen input devices which on the 15" 2017 Spectre X360 are both controlled by a Elan controller ....

It should be just a case of adding the Elan Controller ID and its events to VoodooI2C to get them to work but like i said i'm working on getting the main system stable first before looking at getting the Touch Screen and Pen working in OSX ..

I will revisit it at some point in the future ... of course your free to investigate and work on it yourself.
First place of call is the VoodooI2C git hub which has all the links to the dev and support pages.

Cheers
Jay

Update: Touchscreen and Pen now working ... see new thread here

HP ENVY x360 13-y013cl – Kaby Lake
Got this at costco: https://www.costco.com/HP-ENVY-x360-13-y013cl-13t-Touchscreen-2-in-1-Laptop---Intel-Core-i7---QHD+-.product.100317294.html
Link: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05318836

Works –
OSX 10.11.6
Microprocessor - Intel® Core™ i7-7500U (2.7 GHz, up to 3.5 GHz, 4 MB cache, 2 cores)
Memory - 16 GB LPDDR3-1866 SDRAM
Video graphics - Intel® HD Graphics 620 [use FakePCIID.kext & FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext & HD config_HD620.plist].
Hard drive - 256 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD [works with class-code spoof + HackrNVMeFamily*.kext]
Display -13.3" diagonal QHD+ UWVA eDP WLED-backlit multitouch-enabled edge-to-edge glass (3200 x 1800)
Sleep – Sleeps when lid shuts and wakes up when lids open. However, can’t wake up system with keyboard/trackpad.
"Disk Not Ejected" USB error fix – Install Jettison Mac App
Trackpad/Keyboard – Install SmartTouchPad_v4.6.5
Backlight - works with DSDT edit + IntelBacklight.kext
App Store - works with NullEthernet.kext + NullEthernetInjector.kext
AppleLPC - tried DSDT edit but didn't work so ejected manually with AppleLPCInjector.kext
HiDPI – works
1. Enable HiDPI mode:
a. In terminal – sudo defaults write /System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides/com.apple.windowserver DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool YES
b. copy attached DisplayVendorID-4c83 folder to /System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides/
c. Install RDM 2.1 and enjoy!
Touchscreen - works OOB

Doesn’t work –
Sound – Conexant CX8200 (14f1:2008) [Tried using VoodooHDA; it works but but it stutters]
Battery - tried battery_HP-DV6-3165sf DSDT patch + APCIBatteryManager.kext, works but the time remaining goes up and down consistently and the backlight becomes laggy so I removed the patch.
WiFi – Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 [Bought a DW1560 (BCM94352Z) card, will replace once the card arrives)
Keyboard Backlight Controls – Temporarily fix with Karabiner but would like it working with DSDT edit.

Pre-installation
1. Boot into BIOS and do the following
a. Restore to BIOS default
b. Disable Secure Boot in BIOS
2. Create Clover UEFI USB using post #1 of the following guide - http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...de-booting-os-x-installer-laptops-clover.html. I used the createinstallmedia method.
a. Download the attached EFI folder and copy the files into your USB’s EFI partition. Make sure to overwrite the files.

Installation
1. Boot into USB and follow post #2 of the following guide - http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...de-booting-os-x-installer-laptops-clover.html
2. Install clover to your new OSX partition on your HDD
3. Copy EFI folder from your USB to EFI partition on your HDD.

The HP Envy X360 has a different Touchscreen and pen controller to the Spectre X360 .. i think it works as a PS2 device (or emulates one) ... if you look at the Voodoo I2C Dev pages and download the IO Reg files form Envy users you can see this for yourself.

Hello!

Someone is under High Sierra??

A few months ago I was trying to install macOS in my X360 Spectre (7500U) without success after a lot of attemps. I'm thinking about try again this weeking and I am reading all the related threaths.
Sadly my English is not so good and I have no experienc with DSDT patching.

So... Siera or High Sierra?

Thanks in advance.
