Sleep/wake still not working... Why they always have to break sleep/wake. Can't they break some less useful feature during the development process?

First, AirportBrcmFixup has to be injected via Clover. No installation to /L/E or S/L/E works.

Second, AirportBrcmFixup need to be compiled from updated source. Version 2.0.2 works fine.

AirportBrcmFixup.kext.zip

Thank you, will try. Do you use any Clover Airport patch?

I downloaded the latest Debug version of Lilu (which is 1.3.6) from github repository and AirportBrcmFixup source code 

git clone https://github.com/acidanthera/AirportBrcmFixup

After that I put Lilu.kext inside of AirportBrcmFixup folder and tried to compile the source code with the command: xcodebuild

I have:

** BUILD FAILED **. 

/Users/val/Desktop/AirportBrcmFixup/AirportBrcmFixup/kern_start.cpp:50:17: error: no member named 'Catalina' in 'KernelVersion'

What am I doing wrong?

I am doing this on my Mojave system.

 

Thanks

the GitHub Debug version under releases to now work for that version of AirportBrcmFixup repo. You must compile Lilu debug version yourself and use it to compile AirportBrcmFixup.

even with the shikigva=32 and shiki-id=Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94 parameters, so nothing is gained with the correct SMBIOS.

  

Should work with these boot flags. Do you have IGPU enabled? If so, disable it and try again.

It looks like beta 3 has solved my issue with excessive logging causing performance issues.

 

I think the debug level in Catalina beta 1 and 2 was set too high (or some kext's were compiled with excessive logging). For example I was getting log messages for every in report received by my KVM hid device:

Hey guys, was surprised my ancient GTX 670 is working great. I saw in an earlier post someone els had there's running on Catalina, so thought ok can't be too hard and will give it a try2095789715_ScreenShot2019-07-02at6_40_48PM.png.c1a06386d7ba10ea6a00f856f1ec4299.png

 

Thanks for the help with the plugins and everyone here. 

Sound working, and restart and shut off work. Sleep is a mystery and is not working however works in some versions of macOS. 

To install without the updated plugins Lilu.kext, you need to change the SMBIOS to 14,2 to get video working and not a black screen. 

Once installed use AGDPfix.app or whatevergreen.kext. Audio: AppleALC.kext an issue until the updated plugin. 

And something I always forget to mention for my Asus X79 Deluxe use ApfsDriverLoader.efi and AptioMemoryFix2 not ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi with AptioMemoryFix something about the version that just kills it.

Successful upgrade to Catalina DP3_19A501i on my legacy XPS M1530 core2duo laptop with Nvidia Tesla 8600M GT.  

 

Prepared installer USB from full app with @dosdude's macOS Catalina Patcher v1.0b6 ---> boot to installer with opencore 0.0.3, bypassing machine compatibility checks ---> installed over existing DP2_487l apfs installation.  

 

Applied recommended post-install patches for MBP 5,1 SMBIOS including @ASentientBot's latest acceleration patches for unsupported (non metal) legacy graphics cards.  These are unchanged from DP2.

 

I also copied his CatalinaAutoMountWritable.plist into /Library/LaunchDaemons which auto mounts the root volume as R/W at login (sudo mount -uw /).

 

End Result...

What is the major thing to be patched for C2Duo?

It was com.apple.telemetry.plugin on Mojave

 

Correct.  To avoid kp for Core2Duo machine in Catalina, have to also delete/rename or replace /System/Library/UserEventPlugins/com.apple.telemetry.plugin with the one from 10.13.6.

Hi guys,

 

I know this is most likely an APFS issue...and I'm hoping it will get better with future updates (though I'm not counting on it), but is anyone else having incredibly slow performance with Catalina (any beta) on HDDs? I can't even watch a simple video on youtube. Animations are more like slideshows.:)) Not a good experience at all. I'm only curious if this is just me.

Anyone experiencing intermittent blackscreen once clover (latest as of today's compilation) kicks in?

Only way to get out of it is to reset and hope it works on the next boot.

mmm no... not really. I'm on 4979. No black screens here... At least not on Clover side. On which of the two machines are you getting this? Both Desktop or Laptop or just one of them? I'm thinking it's probably a specific issue. But I don't think it's a general one.

Hi @arsradu

Desktop.

Im on dual boot since Catalina came out (HS & Catalina). Clover only resides on the main SSD which is HighSierra. this never happened before dual booting.

I did try removing Catalina SSD and the issue never happened.

I see.... I'm also dual booting Mojave and Catalina. But they're on different drives. Mojave on the SSD, Catalina on the HDD. Both booting off of Mojave's EFI (so from the same SSD). Your Desktop rig only uses an iGPU, right? Maybe this is not Clover....? Maybe it's one of the kexts responsible for fixing your iGPU...? Or the config patches for iGPU.

At this point, this is only speculation. But...since it's the same Clover...I think it's either a specific issue with Clover + Catalina + iGPU...ooor the issue is not with Clover in the first place, but with one of the kexts (WEG for example)?

Are you using lilubetaall boot flag to boot Catalina? Or compiled newer versions of those kexts (Lilu + WEG) yourself (which would not require that boot flag anymore)?

@arsradu

Im only using iGPU.

I think it must have something to with clover's theme changes on newer revs.

 

You see, i have my own custom theme which i have been using since sierra. I only update clover if needed, but i always retain my custom theme.

Problem only started when i installed catalina (dual boot) and updated clover.

 

Currently, i changed my theme on one of the available themes from the package and have yet to encounter the issue i was having.

So i guess my custom theme was the culprit.

And since this is now an off-topic, il stop here and probably fix my own theme.

 

Arsradu, as always, thanks again :)

      Hi,
       
      I have recently installed Mojave. Went flawlessly. Then I upgraded to Catalina 10.15.1. Went almost flawlessly as well. The only problem I have detected so far is a problem with the sleep/wake cycle. It is possible to let the computer fall asleep, but no wake up then. Hard reset required.
      In the process of investigating I discovered that it is impossible to safe boot into safe mode. So I downgraded to Mojave, only to discover that the safe boot problem wast there too.
       
      These are my specs:
      Motherboard Gigabyte GA H77 D3H  rev 2.0
      MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.1 (Build 19B88)
      Kernel                         Darwin 19.0.0 x86_64

      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger
      - macOS Catalina install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction  This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader
       
      Download the CloverEFI from official repository (used 5099) and install only with these options on "Install macOS Catalina":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - FSInject (I still don't know if it's really necessary)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - ApfsDriverLoader (Support to APFS partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - VBoxHfs (Support HFS/HFS+ partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - Memory fix drivers - AptioMemoryFix (Fix the memory management of de UEFI/BIOS)
      - UEFI Drivers - Additional drivers - NvmExpressDxe (If you are going to use NVMe)
       
      FileVault 2
       
      If you plan to use FileVault 2, you need to download additional drivers, since what comes with Clover is not up to date and use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.
      Follow instructions bellow:
       
      From current Clover installation, check these options to USB keyboard/mouse work on password screen:
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbKbDxe
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbMouseDxe
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      Download the versions 2.1.0 and 2.0.9 of AppleSupportPkg from: https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases
      We need the last version of AppleGenericInput.efi that is inside 2.1.0 and last version of AppleUiSupport.efi that is inside 2.0.9.
      OR download attached bellow.
       
      Put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
       
      That's it! FileVault 2 will work without problems.
       

       
       
       
      Make things works
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below according to your processor version.
      - Put all SSDT-*.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.8.0.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Copy the Clover Configurator to flash drive because you will need later.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC.kext, SMCProcessor.kext, SMCSuperIO.kext and UEFI driver (put VirutalSmc.efi inside /Volumes/EFI/EFI/drivers/UEFI/). I used the version 1.0.9.
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.9.
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.4.
      - Download the AppleALC.kext from here. I used the version 1.4.3.
      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
      - Download the IntelMausi.kext from here. I used the version 1.0.2.
      - Download the SmallTree-Intel-211-AT-PCIe-GBE.kext attached bellow to enable second ethernet.
       
      Important! If you are coming from my previous Mojave guide, please note that I am using some kexts from other repositories / authors.
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM94360CS)
       
      Works out of box (plug 'n' play).
       
       
      Now you can start the installation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock (Geekbench 4: 5840/27384) and another with overclock [5.0 GHz] (Geekbench 4: 6360/30348)
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      Then:
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - Choose the flash drive (white icon).
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press ESC again and select the flash drive.
       
      Choose the internal disk (gray hdd icon) if not already selected.

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.

       
      Post installation
       
      Bootloader

      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to make the system disk bootable.

      Open the Clover Configurator from flash drive that you copied before.

      Mount and open the flash drive EFI partition. (Inside Clover Configurator, Mount EFI -> Select flash drive in Efi Partitions list -> Mount Partition -> Open Partition)
       
      Copy the EFI folder to desktop.
       
      Go back to Clover Configurator, unmount the EFI partition of the flash drive and mount and open the EFI partition of internal disk.
       
      Move the EFI folder from Desktop to EFI partition of the internal disk.
       
      Eject the flash drive.
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition of internal disk to /Library/Extensions and make kext cache, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
      Last thing
       
      Run this command in Terminal to disable hibernation (doesn't work in macOS):
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0  
       
      It's done!
       
       
      System Updates
       
      Will be added here.
