    sanity checking config.plist for accumulated detritus?

    I agree. I'm slowly moving in that direction and have been using OcQuirks for a couple of months. Is there any migration tool that would take an existing config.plist and migrate it to OpenCore, while striping out the detritus or at least warning of problems? It probably is time to start...

    sanity checking config.plist for accumulated detritus?

    I recently had an issue where a config.plist patch, apparently incorrect or no longer valid, had existed for Years on my config.plist as shown in this thread on the correct patch for SATA Hot-plug. Many others had the exact same problem, which had a number of side effects. I'm curious if there...

    Installed 10.15.4 Supplemental Update But Get Blue Background/Unreadable Test

    You might try downloading the Clover.app_v1.17.pkg from Github and use it to 'Optimize' your theme. My understanding is that process will "convert all non png images to png, all images to png8 ... and will also resize each images to a fixed size by taking into account the various sizes for...

    Any KextToPatch for SATA Hot-Plug ?

    For some reason, I must have had that incorrect patch there for Years! All is working for me now with 10.15.4. My internal NVMe shows in grey and the SATA hot-swappable shows in yellow/orange. I can also eject from PathFinder. Note, that the main container (for the 2 drives 10.15.x breaks...

    is VirtualSMC.efi needed with OcQuirks?

    I'm considering moving to VirtualSMC.kext. In the past, this has been paired with VirtualSMC.efi, but now OpenCore includes support so VirtualSMC.efi is no longer needed with OpenCore. I'm using OcQuirks with Clover r5107 running 10.15.4. I'm guessing that OcQuirks includes support, so that...

    macOS 10.15.4 Update

    took about 20 minutes with 3 restarts. 3 monitors with no issues (DVI and DisplayPort). Used Clover 5107, OcQuirks ver 20, latest Weg/Lilu/AppleALC, Sniki OSC-USB-Inject-All, etc., USB aml I built several years ago for my motherboard - all from Clover with nothing in /L/E. Had to select...

    [GUIDE] Installing 3rd Party Kexts - El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina

    In case this of benefit to someone else, I'd been trying to upgrade from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 without success and assumed that it was something in my config.plist causing my problem as obviously there were a Lot of successes with leaving the kexts in /L/E. But, for me - after I removed the...

    Upgrade failure from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 SOLVED!!

    I finally got my upgrade from 10.14.6+ working. Clover_v2.5k_r5104 I did remove all kexts from /L/E (and rebuild caches using Hackintool), including the AppleAHCIPortHotplug.kext that Hackintool installed for Hot Swapping SATA drives. kexts in Clover/other are: USBInjectAll.kext...

    Upgrade failure from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 SOLVED!!

    Ok, I now understand the purpose. If there was no EC device to begin with , my custom .aml would be useless, and the only want to deal with that is with that specific .aml that provides a named EC device. Thanks for clarifying that, no sense having me confuse someone who might read this thread...

    Upgrade failure from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 SOLVED!!

    I agree - I've seen that 1683 error in many threads. However, I have a custom SSDT-USB.aml compiled for my motherboard (included in the zipped EFI in post #1). I'm including an image of the IORegistryExplorer that seems to indicate I have an EC device, unless I'm missing something basic...

    Upgrade failure from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 SOLVED!!

    i just tried your SSDT-EC.aml. There was no effect. Upon more research, SSDT-EC.aml is related to USB power and the steps to take to see if you need it are outlined on TonyMacx86 here. I already have SSDT-USB.aml in my Clover/ACPI/patched (compiled specifically for my motherboard a few years...

    Upgrade failure from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 SOLVED!!

    Interesting about the SSDT-EC.aml being needed for 10.15.2. Did you generate it for each machine specifically? I'll definitely have to try that sometime today - I generally prefer to have the source code on Github somewhere that I can look at. I guess I've been in the Installing 3rd Party...

    Upgrade failure from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 SOLVED!!

    There shouldn't be any redundancy. With (InjectKexts=Detect), no kexts will be injected if they exist in /L/E. Or, am I misunderstanding you? There's definitely movement towards ONLY having kexts in Clover/other (if that's what you mean) - but I'm unclear on whether the final verdict is in...

    Upgrade failure from 10.14.6+ to 10.15.3 SOLVED!!

    I have a working 10.14.6+ system and am attempting to directly upgrade to 10.15.3. I'm using 5104 CloverHacky and have 10.14.6+ running on a bootable Crucial SATA SSD. A Samsung 960 Pro NVMe is also visible (no way to disable with GA=Z270XP-SLI). Kexts in /L/E very latest AppleALC, WEG...

    macOS 10.15.3 Update

    I just re-read your first post in your excellent [GUIDE] Installing 3rd Party Kexts - El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina thread where it outlines "5. How does Clover know to Inject kexts or Not ? " It mentions that Clover uses FakeSMC to determine whether to inject ANY kexts...
