    Color banding/gradient display glitch in Catalina RX 580

    Since upgrading from Mojave to Catalina 10.15.7 I've noticed banding in my gradients around the UI and even in Youtube videos. I tried the Hackintool fix in this thread but no luck: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/colour-banding-issue-on-some-displays.280349/page-2#post-1982695 The best I...

    Getting CPU sensors to work in iStat Menus 6 but not using VirtualSMC?

    Ah, thanks for clearing that up. I suppose I could switch to VirtualSMC but I don't want to mess my system up over some sensors not working lol.

    Getting CPU sensors to work in iStat Menus 6 but not using VirtualSMC?

    I updated to Catalina and am trying to get my CPU sensors to display in iStat Menus 6. It has never worked for me, I've always used Intel Power Gadget to get my CPU temps. Other threads mention using VirtualSMC and it's corresponding plugins to get CPU temperatures but I'm using FakeSMC. Maybe...

    [Success] Updated Directly to Catalina from Mojave

    Probably unlikely but I'm also waiting to see if they smooth out some of the questionable UI decisions with the next major update. Badly designed icons, bulky cartoony elements, iPadOS touch elements (in a non touch OS?), hard to read font colors on top of transparency, extra wasted pixels under...

    [Success] Updated Directly to Catalina from Mojave

    I'm holding off on Big Sur, maybe I'll install the next version of macOS 11 released. I tend to wait at least a year after an update is released before I mess with installing it. No point in breaking a working hackintosh just for fun!

    [Success] Updated Directly to Catalina from Mojave

    I (finally) updated from Mojave 10.14.6 to Catalina 10.15.7 tonight. At first I could only boot in safe mode, but after removing all the 3rd party kexts from Library/Extensions it booted with no problems, everything was working. As others have mentioned Catalina boots better if you keep all your...

    Anyone had success with Big Sur using Clover? Upgrading from Mojave.

    I think I might just end up sticking with Mojave or Catalina for a while. I'm hoping Apple improves the GUI with their next update in September because man it looks ugly right now. Like why are we turning MacOS into iPad OS/ iOS again?

    Anyone had success with Big Sur using Clover? Upgrading from Mojave.

    So if I get OpenCore working I should be able to update directly to Big Sur from Mojave using System Preferences?

    Anyone had success with Big Sur using Clover? Upgrading from Mojave.

    I'm running Mojave and have a couple questions about updating to Big Sur. 1) Do I have to upgrade to Catalina first? If so, do I need to do anything other than updating Clover to the latest version? (I plan on cloning my working Mojave installation to an external HD so I can revert if I run...

    How to Prepare for Big Sur

    Am I able to update from Mojave to Big Sur through Software update? I'm using iMac 18,1 system definition. Is there anything I need to do to prepare besides updating to the latest Clover?

    Is there any good reason to update from Mojave to Catalina?

    Honestly, Mojave has been by far the most stable macOS for hackintosh in my experience. (I've run Snow Leopard, Mavericks, El Capitan, Sierra). Once I got everything set up I've had no kernel panics anything like that for almost 2 years of use. With the exception of when I accidentally updated...

    Is there any good reason to update from Mojave to Catalina?

    Thanks for the info, I have a friend who's even having bugs with Catalina on his iMac and Macbook! Mojave seems to be more stable overall, and Catalina doesn't really bring anything new to the table worth risking my stability. It's another one of Apple's "major OS updates" that is basically the...

    Is there any good reason to update from Mojave to Catalina?

    Is there any good reason to update from Mojave to Catalina or should I just wait until Big Sur is released? I don't see any features worth updating for when I have a stable Mojave install, in fact the removal of 32 bit apps is a reason not to upgrade on it's own. I'm wondering if maybe I...

    Apple Previews macOS 11.0 Big Sur - Available Fall 2020

    Catalina didn't add any new features to make upgrading worthwhile for me and OS 11 looks like the most dismal "major macOS update" ever. Case in point, remember OS 9 to OS X? Completely different UI and architecture. It felt like a decade long leap in technology was happening. OS 11 just looks...

    No audio after 10.14.6 update. VoodooHDA stopped working!

    As far as I know 10.14.6 completely bricks VoodooHDA... I had to use the AppleALC audio method which has been working fine for the last few months.
