Hello, all
Updated 2 machines from Mojave like real Mac (i3-5010/i5-5250, HD5500/HD6000)

1. Update Clover to Clover UEFI Boot Mode v2.4k r4961
info.plist from working Mojave - no changes
2. Download and install update from AppStore
3. All works fine except sound
Steps to fix sound (works on both machines):
1. Turn off sound hacks in Clover
2. Delete Voodoo from /Library/Extensions
3. Download latest AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext and put them into /Library/Extensions
4. Search vanila AppleHDA.kext (I found from Mojave) if there is no such file and put into /Library/Extensions
5. The new files unable to work even after the kext rebuild because of the permissions, fix it
Code:
sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions
sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions
6. kext cache rebuild
Code:
sudo kextcache -i /

Good luck )

This worked perfectly for me. Thanks a lot for the instructions! Here a back-up link, just to make sure that this doesn't get lost elsewhere:

Also, I've reformulated your solution a bit. It was a bit confusing for me at first (I'm an amature on hackintoshes). Hope you don't mind. Thank you once again for the fix you provided.

Steps to fix sound:

1. Turn off sound hacks in Clover if applicable
2. Download Sound Fix.zip and unzip
3. Place Kext files (AppleALC.kext, AppleHDA.kext, Lilu.kext) in /Library/Extensions
4. Update the above Kext files with Hackintool.
5. Move Voodoo.kext from /Library/Extensions to another folder (as a back-up) if applicable
6. Fix permissions:
Code:
sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions
sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions

7. Kext cache rebuild:
Code:
sudo kextcache -i /

8. Reboot PC

English is not my native language, so I write as I can ))

Uploaded files were downloaded from GitHub projects (AppleALC.kext, Lilu.kext)
AppleALC
Lilu


AppleHDA.kext was taken from working Mojave.
In addition, maybe remount root partition is required, but that step do all, who uses hachintosh, after the installation, so I missed it.
Code:
sudo mount -uw /

4. Move Voodoo.kext from /Library/Extensions to another folder (as a back-up) if applicable

This is a third-party sound driver that do not work on Catalina, there is no sense to backup it.
