Here are my "problem Reporting" files generated by gen_debug and my clover folder.

Would be nice if someone could check them. Got also some usb-c issues and my Bluetooth :/

MacOS Catalina is released!
If someone tried with the Official Version not the beta, please report :p

Okay, I upgraded. Couldn't wait any longer.
Upgrade was smooth. Rebooted 2 to 3 Times.

sudo kextcache -i /
solved trackpad issue as always.
Everything is working except my Bluetooth issue :[ and my shitty DHCP can't watch iTunes (now called TV) movies.

So, went to jardenliu's git and checked what he did the last days.

Seems like adding BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext to Clover kexts folder solves my Bluetooth issue.

Yep, you need to use these kexts:

- BrcmPatchRAM2.kext
- BrcmFrimwareData.kext (haven't tried it myself, you should be able to use BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext for L/E)
- BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext

You should use all three to get your bluetooth working after the update.

Compiled (and modified) version of kexts

Can you share your EFI?

Had few trouble with bluetooth not working using :
- BrcmPatchRAM2.kext
- BrcmFrimwareData.kext

Instead - BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext worked for me. If you do, only use this only kext in favor of the 2 above. You can't use both.

So i tried upgrading to Catalina and now i just get a black screen with a white Apple logo. Anyone have a way to fix this? i have an old Mojave boot disk and a new catalina install disk, but it would seem that both just boot to the black screen :(

I am using all 3 kexts and its working pretty well.
Are you sure that you can connect to devices with your bluetooth setup?


EDIT:
Like noted in a post before. There is a new fork of RehabMan's BRCMPatchRam.
