Reporting minor bugs I've found after updating to Catalina: 

  1. Sidecar doesn't work: switched to any iMac model that uses iGPU and enable iGPU will make sidecar work. (have to use iGPU DSDT) enabling the iGPU while using Vega56/VII DSDT resulting KP. Nothing we can do because that's how Apple new Pro machines rely on its T2 chips to do the encoding + provide additional layer of data protection for Sidecar. 
  2. Plugging in iPad to USB 3 port before power on will create KP 
  3. Running Photoshop filter that requires GPU acceleration (for example: Alien Skin Exposure X5, etc.) then switching to other applications while the filter is doing its job will break GPU acceleration in Photoshop. (not sure if it's happening in real Mac too) 
  4. Slow to wake from sleep: Tapping on keyboard wakes the system but screen remains black, then pressing mouse button to wake the screen. 

 

Update to AMD RDNA card (5700 - 5500), latest Catalina Beta doesn't include the kext for those cards. So we have to wait for the next 2 beta version to have the beta driver. Apple already pulled out the support for the beta 1 on their dev site. 


Buddy most your problems in your bug report are not happening to me.

wake from sleep is normal (darkwake=0) 

no KP from iPad on usb 3.

Sidecar same problems as you but photoshop is fine (latest version)

interesting :)

I'm not getting the clover splash, so I guess I have to make that change in my clover config and then revert it back right?

Package buddy,

if you haven’t done it before then watch glasgoods short video on how to update clover. 
 

p.s finish the Catalina update before updating clover as you have already started that process.

@AudioGod I'm receiving this message when I try to update (I followed glasgood's guide)

I pressed Install Anyway and it worked, but when I booted in clover I choose macOS disk but nothing happened :/ 

 

Update:

There was a second drive "MacOS - Data" I chose it and is now installing the update. I hope I won't have to do that process from now on when there is an update available

Didn’t happen to me when I updated pal but looking online it’s happening to some people and not others.

the message you got from clover is because it’s not officially Catalina certified yet but it works just fine so don’t worry about it and just enjoy. :)

I got this.. had to remount / as rw and kill finder. It installed after that.. suspect it was due to the installation of a new clover settings panel that points to the new location on github.. just a guess at this point though.

@AudioGod Get the Beta 2 and try your 5700 XT. Driver is on. 

Ok will do,

il do it tomorrow as I have a z390 master I might swap into my system too for my pro...

I have a super golden 9900k now. 5.1@1.325v with no offset and prime stable with a average temp of 80c and highest temp of 82c while never drawing more then 186w. How insane is that?

that is the most golden 9900k I’ve ever seen or tested and I’ve had so many go though my hands..

I reckon on a hero or the master it’s gonna hit 5.2 with no effort and the z390 master is sitting here telling me to use it so what’s a man meant to do? :hysterical:

Oh dear, Please try it and get a DSDT for Gigabyte Z390 Designare. I love those 2 thunderbolt ports. Now the summer heat is gone. OC time LOLZ.

sounds like you messed up your clover upgrade to me bud. Download my efi again and try again without updating

I got some random kernel panic when booting after upgrading to catalina, but it's really rare. A quick restart always solve the issue.

@larabee I’ve gone and switched boards from the pro to the master, I couldn’t resist so now I’m all out of Wack with you guys but I’m hoping bar the dsdt nothing else will be any different. My motherboard settings are the same so far but let’s wait and see what happens once the dsdt is created. Fingers crossed il be extending this guide to include the z390 master if it all works out otherwise your going to have to take over keeping the EFI in check. Let’s see what happens but I will report back soon. :)

Hello everyone!

 

Today I had to unplug my computer from power source for about an hour or so, when I plugged back in everything my Apple logo on boot screen is huge instead of the small nice apple logo it used to be, even though in my clover configurator I have placed the resolution properly for the boot screen. Also I noticed that while previously when I was booting only my main display was showing the logo, now my 3rd display also shows the logo and I'm not sure how to revert back to previous state since I didn't do anything to my EFI, I only unplugged my computer from power.

 

I upgraded clover to latest version and I noticed that with VirtualSMC v1.0.8 all USB devices are stop working after a few seconds inside the OS. It's like that the USB interfaces are working for 10 - 15 seconds after boot and then they are disabled (including USB2/3/3.1), any ideas? I have now placed VirtualSMC v1.0.7 since it is working.

 

Also, could you please explain me what are these settings for?

 Power  Platform Power Management  Enabled

 Power  ErP  Enabled  (can be enabled or disabled, your choice)

 Power  RC6 (Render Standby)  Disabled

 

I'm attaching my EFI with VirtualSMC 1.0.8

 

Thanks!

Double check your motherboard battery, it may be depleted, then double check the Bios settings to see if anything has changed. 

Using the Virtual SMC 1.0.8 EFI, try updating to Catalina and see how it goes. I myself prefer the 1.0.7 because it's more stable to my rig. Newer is not always better. Whenever you do an update to important Kext such as virtualSMC / fakeSMC, always have a backup just incase. You never know what will happen next. 

 

 Power  Platform Power Management  Enabled Allow your motherboard to manager advance power configuration such as setting different voltage control, power saving features, different C states for your CPU. 

 Power  ErP  Enabled  (can be enabled or disabled, your choice): ErP Support determines whether to let the system consume less than 1W of power in S5 (shutdown) state. Basically this enable power on by mouse or keyboard. I have a cat and she loves to take a nap on my keyboard, so I must disable this one haha. 

 Power  RC6 (Render Standby)  Disabled : This specifically addresses the iGPU to enter deep sleep to decrease power consumption. Doesn't quite compatible with the way Apple does its power management. Therefore, it must be disabled. 

I hope that helps. 

 

 

@AudioGod not a big deal. I think we should expanded the support for more gigabyte Z390 boards. I'll have my designare ordered next month. Time to get to play with the new rig haha.

Awesome bud I’m glad you think that as I want to do the same thing and have a few different dsdt for different boards on here.

my dsdt for the master is 80% there now....few bugs to iron out and it will be done.

the difference in performance and overclock stability is ridicules. 5.1ghz needed 1.325v on the z390 pro and now on the master it’s rock solid at 1.296v. 
EFI is different but a lot of the changes might translate into the Z390 pro EFI too so I might have a test EFI for you to try out later if you don’t mind brother?

@larabee hey! Thanks for the answer! It was very detailed!

 

I'm on Catalina already, and I now realised that even with VirtualSMC 1.0.7 my USB devices are disconnected after a few seconds I boot into my OS :(

 

After I updated to Catalina I feel that the OS became less stable :/

 

The settings in BIOS are intact so I guess there isn't motherboard's battery issue, could it have something to do with GPU? I used to boot with only my main screen and now my main screen and my 3rd screen are mirrored when I boot while my 2nd screen is turned off and turns only when I enter login screen

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F10, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8700k, 9600k, 9700k, 9900k

      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, 5700, 5700 XT
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
       
       
       @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install.

      Salve a tutti,
      ho provato diverse volte ad installare macOS sul mio laptop ma sempre senza successo, non riesco mai ad arrivare nemmeno all'installer!
      Ho tentato ormai diverse configurazioni/driver ma non capisco mai da cosa siano derivanti gli errori o i blocchi che mi trovo davanti e sto quindi cercando aiuto per capire come procedere 
      Nello specifico il config che sto provando ad utilizzare non mi trova per niente la partizione con l'installer, mentre un altro vecchio (presente sempre nella cartella di clover allegata con estensione .orig) si inchioda subito dopo la scelta della partizione di avvio.
      Qualcuno mi sa dare una mano su come superare ciò?
      Grazie in anticipo,
       
      Giacomo
       
       
      P.S. Le mie specifiche sono:
       
      - Modello ASUS N552VW-FI202T
      - Schermo 3840x2160
      - CPU Intel Core i7-6700HQ
      - RAM 16GB ddr4 2400mHz
      - Intel HD Graphics 530 + nVidia 960m 4GB (anche funzionasse solo la Intel sarebbe perfetto)
      - SSD 256GB
      - HDD 1TB

      SleepOnLowBattery (“SOLB”)
      by BugsB, based on a script by Toggi3 * + more code snippets from the www
       
      For those of us whose HackBook (or even real MacBook) doesn't automatically and properly go into power saving mode on very low battery but just powers down coldly, crashing macOS: “SOLB”, a small and RAM/ CPU wise very low footprint AppleScript based utility that checks the battery level every 2 minutes, running via daemon in the background.
       
      You can choose between two versions, either with or without sound. Both display a notification in the top right of your screen.
       
      Between ≤10 and >8% battery charge:

       
      Between ≤8 and >5% battery charge:

       
      On ≤ 5% battery charge you will see a 10 seconds countdown dialog box in 1 second intervals:

       

       
      which you can cancel, or have your your *ac*Book be sent to sleep when down to 0.
       
      The version with sound uses the pleasant macOS US female voice Allison. If the lady is not installed, you can download "her" via System Preferences, Accessibility, Speech (pane tab should get opened by the install script), click onto the two arrows to the right of System Voice, Customize, English (Unites States) -- Female, activate Allison, OK (macOS downloads voices to /System/Library/Speech/Voices - Allison consumes 120 MB).
       
      If you want to see/ see and listen first, disconnect your Mac from its power supply and double click the “run Demo” file in either folder, with or without sound.
       
      The launcher is installed per user, so one user can use the script with and another user the script without sound.
       
      Run your desired install.command, with or without sound. The script should be active right away without restart.
       
      Regarding the sound version, you can also:
      - download any other English voice of your liking and edit the name inside the script at the very top
      - download any language voice and translate the text inside the script
      Edit with Apple Script Editor, save, install, reboot.
       
      Tested working in macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.1.
      Please feedback if this utility also works for you.
       
      If you have ideas, experience bugs, etc., please contribute as precise, succinct, productive and friendly as possible. In case of a bug, always include your version of macOS for me or others to try and help. Thank you.
       
      ENJOY
       
      VERSION HISTORY:
      2019-11-15 v. 1.1
          •    BUG FIX: changed all occurrences of ExternalChargeCapable to ExternalConnected in all Apple Script .scpt files (SleepOnLowBattery.scpt, SleepOnLowBatterySound.scpt, demo.scpt) to restore functionality
          •    IMPROVEMENT: made queries of MaxCapacity and CurrentCapacity more compatible to work with hopefully any system
          •    NEW: added Catalina compatibility to install scripts; verified Mojave compatibility
          •    NEW: Sound script uses voice Allison if installed, otherwise automatically defaults back to another English standard voice (Daniel, Alex or Fred)
       
      2018-11-10 v.1.0
          •    initial version
       
      IDEAS TO IMPLEMENT IN FUTURE RELEASES:
      Have the sound version install script check if Allison is installed, and if not, offer to download and install it. Purely cosmetic: find a way to have the display notification in the top right of the screen not display the Script Editor icon but the one of the utility without turning the utility into an app but by maintaining a script to keep the load footprint low. This is currently neither possible with an Apple Script nor with an Apple Script Bundle file, only with the script compiled into an app. One possibility might be a Perl approach, if someone volunteers. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
