  1. For what it's worth, when I check my video capabilities with VidProc version 3.2, it tells me that HEVC is supported. When I use VidProc version 3.4, it tells me that HEVC is not supported. Here I have them running side-by-side.

    macOS Catalina 10.15 is out !!!

    I deleted my Xcode from my apps folder and then ran the installation from the App Store. That worked after multiple failures before that.

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    Same issue with your compilation.

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    Perhaps this article is correct and tomorrow (October 4th) is the actual release date. https://www.techradar.com/news/macos-catalina

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    I compiled version 1.08 using @headkaze's Hackintool. After installing it in Clover/kexts/other, I couldn't boot. No "DSMOS has arrived." Everything else seemed to have loaded including graphics drivers.
  6. I suspect your booting issues are not hardware related but driver related. If you want to post your EFI directory, I can take a look. (P.S.- I no longer own my Envy 17t-3200 CTO. I sold it to a friend and it is still working just fine but he runs Win10 on it only. I have a Zotac Z83 with the same chipset and Intel HD4000 GPU so I still know how to run Mojave on it just fine. I will put Catalina on it when it is officially released.)

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    For me, the kext that caused my KP after restoring from Time Machine was ~/Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPortHotplug.kext. Yours may be different but I suspect you have a kext in ~/Library/Extensions that is causing your KP.

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    No fusion drive for me. My specs are in my signature. I just deleted the kext. I didn't need it to run Catalina. Once I deleted it, no more KP.
  9. I had this issue too. I don't know whether you have a laptop or desktop and whether you are using your Nvidia GPU exclusively or whether you are using the onboard Intel GPU. Therefore, I don't know if my situation is even close to yours. I am using the Intel GPU with the Nvidia GPU disabled in my DSDT since my BIOS does not allow video switching (video switching only occurs within Windows 10). The problem for me is that my HDMI port is hardwired to the Nvidia GPU and with it disabled, it didn't work. What made it work for me was the following: I added the NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext to my Clover kexts (along with Whatevergreen kext, which is not recommended) and I enabled Nvidia Graphics in my config.plist along with Intel Graphics. In macOS, it still does not show my Nvidia GPU at all but these changes had the effect of restoring power to the HDMI port and allowing it to work with my Intel GPU. I have no idea why this works or why Whatevergreen alone isn't enough but it does work.

    This happened to me when I installed Catalina. For me, I had a kext in ~/Library/Extensions that was causing the problem. I don't recall the name of the kext but it had AHCI in its name.

    Looks like we'll need to wait a bit more for its release.

    You still need IPG.

    Hackintool v2.8.6

    The "installed" window is not picking up your update to the BrcmFirmwareStore kexts.
  14. On my old HP laptop, I had a problem with the Clover mouse driver and could not have it in my driver folder and could not enable mouse functions on the Clover page. The driver conflicted with the PS2Controller kext. See if that has anything to do with it. Also, take a look at the command line fix in this article and see if that helps. https://appuals.com/fix-trackpad-scroll-not-working-on-macos/4 Another article I read suggested that you delete your trackpad and mouse preferences and reboot. Your ioreg looked fine now that you cleaned out the duplicate kexts. BTW, I use Force Touch mode 2 and get better control. I manually changed that in the info.plist for the trackpad.
  15. Your ioreg says that you are using RehabMan's ps2controller kext. Is it possible that you have his kext somewhere beside Clover/kexts/Other on your laptop, such as L/E? That would prevent you getting the prefpane with acidanthera's version in Clover kexts.
