Is your sidecar working with that config.plist?
Sidecar is not working - I do not see e.g. my iPad in the panel

@CeeeWeee
Is it necessary to do the Multibeast installation? even if there is no version for Catalina only the one for Mojave
I would say yes - I see there it is a couple of weeks since your post. How did it work out for you?

However I am getting random crashes that cause the system to reboot. How do I go about tracking the issue?
It can be lots of things. Not sure how to track it. Do you also have Windows installed and is the behavior also seen there? Do you monitor temperature?

I have Windows installed, it is stable. Which bios version are you using on your board? 22f was very unstable for me (both OSX and Windows), I am using 22a at the moment. I haven't monitor the temps.

That PCH Die is normal.

The console app has lots and lots of logs of your system. I do not really know the details and how it is structured - but there is a system log there. Start it up and see what happens just prior to when your system crashes

I swapped out my Sapphire RX580 with GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5700 XT GAMING OC

Process was:
- Remove old - insert new :clap:
- Add agdpmod=pikera to the bootflag
- Remove ATI Injection
=> Works

****** This means the guide might be limited on RX 580 advice going forward ********

Hi !

I have the exact same motherboard and the same cpu as this guide, I even copied the EFI folder attached in the conversation, i'm able to boot, to install all the exact kext in multibeast, I followed every step but I'm not able to have audio (except from hdmi), wifi or USB3. Did I miss something ?
