I was able to get my laptop working on Sierra with the Clover provided by darkhanz: https://github.com/darkhandz/XPS15-9550-Sierra. Try the latest 12-7 except first couple of lines of the config.plist.

For my laptop, I had to make minor changes:
- To get my USB drive to work, had to add 15 port limit patch in Clover and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext. See the attache config.

Will report back what is not working:
- Loses sound after sleep. WIFI unreliable after sleep.
- Immediate wake up from sleep.
- Trackpad using Voodoo v1.8.25. I tried out, but when my laptop when to sleep last night, it had a kp. Reverting back to ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext.

For my laptop, I had to make minor changes:
- To get the sound working, also put AppleALC to SLE. Removed AppleHDA fixes from the config
- To get my USB drive to work, added 15 port limit patch. See the attache config.
- Using ApplePS2SmartTouchPad in Clover/kexts

I would tend to prefer patched AppleHDA the Clover way vs. patched AppleHDA via AppleALC...

Will report back what is not working:
- Trackpad from Preference is empty

Report the problem to the ApplePS2SmartTouchPad author.

- Loses sound after sleep

Patched AppleHDA via Clover did not work, so I used AppleALC then I got the sound.

CodecCommander.kext is installed on my SLE, but no sound after wake.

Check in ioreg to see that CodecCommander is started. You should find it under HDEF.

I see CodecCommander under HDEF/AppleHDAController/IOHDACodecDevice/Driver/Function. See the attached.

Must be some other issue then.

Here is the zip file.

Note: Your issue is probably an AppleALC.kext issue. You should try patching AppleHDA the traditional way instead.

Note 2: The patches you have for BCM943252HMB are wrong. See FAQ and 10.12 thread.

Download patchmatic: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-maciasl-patchmatic/downloads/RehabMan-patchmatic-2015-0107.zip
Extract the 'patchmatic' binary from the ZIP. Copy it to /usr/bin, such that you have the binary at /usr/bin/patchmatic.

In terminal,
Code:
if [ -d ~/Downloads/RehabMan ]; then rm -R ~/Downloads/RehabMan; fi
mkdir ~/Downloads/RehabMan
cd ~/Downloads/RehabMan
patchmatic -extract

Note: It is easier if you use copy/paste instead of typing the commands manually.

Attach contents of Downloads/RehabMan directory as ZIP.
