    macOS 10.15.6 Supplemental Update

    Easy update for me: • Clover was already up to date. Updated Lilu, Whatevergreen and VirtualSMC. • On the first restart, the UEFI reset to defaults, so I had to go in and change the settings to be compatible. (This seems to happen more often than not when updating my system.) • 2 restarts...

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    In my opinion the current hierarchy of UI's goes MacOS, Windows, Linux. MacOS is still the most polished and usable to me, but Windows 10 is a lot better than previous versions. Linux is somewhat primitive as far as the UI is concerned, and I don't see it catching up as the development is...

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    Wow! This has such a different feel and many more unknowns than the switch from PPC to Intel X86. This is a much more complex transition than anything done successfully before in the PC world. Here are a few thoughts... From my perspective: Apple seems to be completely abandoning the enthusiast...

    macOS 10.15.5 Supplemental Update

    This one was tricky for me... I updated to 10.15.5 with no problems so I thought this would be easy as well. I installed the latest Lilu, Whatevergreen, and VirtualSMC. I was already on the latest Clover 5118, so no changes there. Then I backed up my system. This "supplemental" update was...

    macOS 10.15.4 Supplemental Update

    Easy update for me. Backed up first of course, just in case. Updated to Clover v5109, VirtualsSMC 1.1.2, Lilu 1.4.3 and WhateverGreen 1.3.8. It went smoother than the initial update to 10.15.4. The first restart went to the UEFI again instead of Clover. After restarting from the UEFI, it booted...

    macOS 10.15.4 Update

    Wow! I'm really late to the party this time due to a move. Updated to Clover 5108 using the new Clover App. Updated Lilu, WhatEverGreen and VirtualSMC. Update went mostly good, but took about an hour. There were several long pauses where it seemed it was stuck, but just needed more time to work...

    How to Update Clover v2.4k r4xxx to v2.5k r5xxx (v2.4k r4972 to v2.5 r5018 example)

    This is an expected and standard message. Clover is not recognized by Apple, so it is listed as not compatible no matter which version you try to install it on. Just choose to continue and you should be able to install it successfully.

    [GUIDE] Remove extra Clover BIOS boot entries & prevent further problems

    Did you try resetting the CMOS? Q-Flashing the bios may help. I can't imagine why you can't boot from a Windows 10 Installer USB. Perhaps your Windows 10 Installer USB is bad, or perhaps it was not set to boot UEFI systems. Try disconnecting any internal HD's and SSD's and just having the...

    macOS 10.15.3 Update

    Backed up my 10.15.2 installation - of course. Checked my /L/E folder and found a duplicate FakeSCM kext (deleted), a deprecated internet kext (deleted), and an old IntelMausiEthernet kext (deleted). (I was impressed with myself as I had labeled these kexts when I installed them with a red dot...

    [GUIDE] Remove extra Clover BIOS boot entries & prevent further problems

    First, try resetting the CMOS on the motherboard, and then try the installation USB again. If that doesn't work you can try this... Note, I have had success with this sometimes, but I don't really know exactly why it worked. At least it will not make anything worse: Format a USB drive with...

    macOS 10.15.2 Update

    All working well. Updated Lilu and Whatevergreen, and also Clover to v5100.

    How to Update Clover v2.4k r4xxx to v2.5k r5xxx (v2.4k r4972 to v2.5 r5018 example)

    If your system is working with the older Clover, then there probably won't be an immediate advantage to updating. Apple constantly changes things, however, so moving forward you are generally better off with the newest Clover builds as they do have continual improvements. Obviously, I didn't...

    macOS 10.15.1 Update

    Apparently the repository location has changed. This is the old repository: https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/files/Installer/ If you download the latest one from there, 5071, you get this message: You are in the wrong place, go here...

    macOS 10.15.1 Update

    Updated to Lilu 1.3.9, WhateverGreen 1.3.4, and Clover 5098 before trying to update. All worked as planned with no issues:

    macOS Catalina 10.15.0 Supplemental Update

    Update went fine. It took about 60 minutes, but that was because I did other things while it was happening. It probably would have been about 40 minutes otherwise. I am on Clover v5070 and did not update to v5071 because there is an odd message about a location change when the 5071 installer is...
