The Apple MacBook Pro 2017 models are nearly identical to their 2016 counterparts, except for the use of newer Intels Kaby Lake processors instead of Intel Skylake processors, faster memory and updated AMD Radeon GPUs in the 15-inch models.
I used a USB-C Monitor with a USB keyboard.

What doesn’t work
Get WiFi working
This MacBook model uses a Broadcom wireless board which is not great but at least we’ll get decent wifi. There’s an issue with the brcmfmac module used by the kernel. Here’s how to fix it.
- Download this file: brcmfmac43602-pcie.txt
- In Terminal:
sudo cp ~/Downloads/brcmfmac43602-pcie.txt /lib/firmware/brcm/
Soundcard & Suspend/Resume
If you have any idea how I can get the sound card and Suspend/Resume working, let me know!
