You must add your own serialnumber. I recommend GenSMBIOS. Remember to use
Use this a a starting point, this is no replacement of your own research, trial and error.
What is working
XCPM power management is native supported. HWP is fully enabled as well.
Wi-Fi & Bluetooth
This laptop comes with an Intel WiFi + Bluetooth combo so, I replaced mine with BCM94352Z (DM1560). Airport, Handoff are working correctly.
Camera is functioning normally.
USB ports are working as expected.
Use USBInject-All.kext then with Hackintool disable all unused ports and generate a USBPorts.kext
Working fine with hardware acceleration.
Detected and correct values.
Fan Speed, CPU temp and voltage.
Audio and microphone works, but headphone jack requires a workaround.
Driven by AppleALC with
layout-id: 11. Working fine but headphone jack requires a workaround and is not detected by default (HDMI Audio output has not been tested).
Built-in mic is working
Fn Keys not working. Also strange behavior sometimes after waking up, see Sleep.
Functioning with multigestures, but sometimes “teleports” doing certain gestures.
Requires a workaround and is not detected.
Sleep and Wake
Working but sometimes weird behavior ensues. Example, if a key if pressed when waking up, the keyboard will stop working correctly, and the key pressed will repeat indefinitely in the password field, and touchpad stops working.
Internal SD card Reader
Additional info, quirks, findings, etc
Remove kexts asociated with BCM94352Z(DW1560) if you do not have installed one.
CtlnaAHCIPort is absolutely necesary to Big Sur. Using
MinKernel this kext only loads in BirSur
AirPortBrcm4360 only loads in Catalina (using
19.9.9). This kext makes Big Sur unable to boot.
Added and updated a ton of kexts.
Updated to OpenCore 0.6.7
Big Sur now working (yay)!
Audio now works via
XHCI-unsupported.kextbecause is not needed
SMCSuperIO.kextfor CPU and fan sensor support
Fixed: Wrong iGPU in
Updated: Sleep and Wake findings
