  1. Sometimes when trying to access the forums, Firefox and Microsoft Edge for Mac will show me a "Certificate Expired" warning page and potential security issues. The forums will also occasionally get painfully slow to the point the browser gives up waiting for a response and bails out. Edge says the site's certificate has expired 14 days ago.

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    You can use the same tool from the beta 1. Makes no difference.
  3. As soon as Apple released build 19A471t of Catalina for testing, I tried to install it on my machine, which was running Mojave 10.14.5 completely fine. The initial install went fine... Up until the "Start MacOS Install Prebooter from Preboot" part. Right when the OS tried to load the display driver, pink stripes would appear on the screen and it would just sit there for almost 40 minutes... then it would continue the install, just to get stuck again on the next reboot. I was almost giving up and had already downloaded a fedora Linux ISO to remove macOS from the computer... After reading up a bit, I found that this was due to Clover 4934 not being able to inject kexts correctly onto Catalina... Then a user on a Facebook group posted Clover 4937 and updated Lilu+Plugins kexts... It worked! But Catalina was still running a little sluggish... I thought it was because I upgraded from Mojave... Did a clean install... Still I felt something was not OK... Then earlier today I decided to reinstall Mojave and upgrade to Catalina again, but this time, using Clover 4940 and updated Kexts found here... Result: Now macOS Catalina is running very well, very stable and smooth. Will install and test every beta! Thanks to Community Members who took their time to compile updated kexts and Clover to give us, end users, a better Hackintosh experience

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave 10.14.3

    Out of curiosity, why is Apple still using Darwin Kernel version 18.2.0 for this release? (They've used it in 10.14.1, 10.14.2 and now again on 10.14.3). I was expecting 18.3.0 or 18.4.0.

    Question Regarding Updates.

    My current hackintosh is an Intel-based tower running a vanilla install of High Sierra 10.13.6. Can I install future security updates and OS updates in general without too much headaches? For example, let's say Apple releases a critical security update for High Sierra on August 9th... Can I install that update without too much hassle? (I am fine with updating Clover, backing up kexts from the EFI folder and so on...)
  9. I have everything working, except for sleep. Sound, video, network all is working fine. But how do i upgrade the OS to v10.10.5? Could anyone help me? I tried installing the combo update, replacing the kernel, then replacing system.kext.... but no avail. Just keeps rebooting. This is my current system: Mobo ASUS M5A78L-M LX/BR (all USBs work, as well as the DVD drive); CPU AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz (Shows as an Intel Xeon in "About This Mac"); 8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM (Shows as DDR3 667MHz); GPU XFX Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 (works perfectly, with full QE/CI support).
