would you mind to share a short step by step guide? what method you use to get sierra? also what boot args you use, some modified config file, maybe modified dsdt? I had kernel panic at apple boot logo after installation finishes, seems to be kext/kernel issue. I use direct update method from tony forum. btw thanks before

thanks, after 12 hours of workaround, finally it's working good. just need some optimizing. do you think I need to use nvidia web driver for performance stability? oh yea, also I don't need nullcpupower kext anymore ight? since I use your dsdt.

I forgot to mention, would you mind to share a geekbench result of your g73sw to compare with mine? so that I can see if I my cpu is already well configured or not

I didn't try the web drivers.

You don't need NullCPU but the DSDT isn't enough, you need AsusAICPUPM=True in Clover config as for Yosemite.

last question, is it fine if I update to 10.12.3 via App Store? is there any additional step or I can just do it right away?

btw so much thanks, I wouldn't get into Sierra without you xD

You can update via App Store, you will just need to re-patch AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy, or you can try this

sorry for taking your time, last question. how can i fix usb3 port? if i just plug the usb 3 port it won't detected, if i try to reboot while the usb3 port still plugged in, when get inside desktop it was detected, but somehow if i try to copy/open files, it's corrupt. using usb2 is just fine, no corrupt at all. already tried to put appleusbxhcipci patch to clover but still not fixed.

sorry for my bad english, i hope you can still understand my issue xD thanksss

It works with RehabMan-Generic-USB3-2015-1215.

It doesn't show up in system profiler but it works.

Hello, is anyone using high sierra? It seems to have serious problems with this notebook(graphics flickering , unstable , not possible to use it). Any suggestion? Thanks!

I'm no longer using this laptop, the video card bricked and I couldn't find a replacement at affordable price in Brazil. The latest version I used was Sierra, it was stable. I had to patch AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy to avoid black screen since 10.10 and other fixes for 10.11 and 10.12 as I posted here
