Step 2: Download DummyHDA here. Copy LayoutX.xml.zlibPlatforms.xml.zlib from AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/ (this is the working AppleHDA) to DummyHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/

Step 3: Open Info.plist in AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext/Contents/ (this is the working AppleHDA). Copy all the value here:

Step 4: Reinstall vanilla AppleHDA and DummyHDA to S/L/E by Kext Wizard, rebuild cache/repair permission then restart. You may need to restart once more to get the sound.
