ok so question for everyone....My wifi keeps grabbing the en0 but i want it to use en1 so i can set my usb ethernet as en0. I have tons of issues getting messages to work...how has everyone else handled this?
This is not how things work, in order to get iMessage working en0 must be built in network card, which usb ethernet IS NOT, and your wifi card IS. Your issue with iMessage is not related to en0

Are you still using it docked? I've tried CLOVER v3.4 and I can only wake my 9560 using lid or power button.
This is really irritating, I have to open lid and press power button each time I want to wake laptop when "docked".
Thinking of selling XPS and moving to MacBook for this single reason.
Anyone have this working properly?

Hey everyone,

I've got issues with booting to the system after Catalina upgrade. I use FileVault2.

1) My original EFI config displays the error related to the graphics (?). I can boot with single-user mode, mount drivers etc but I cannot run GUI.

2. Clover config uploaded by @LeLunZ (after adding the missing filevault2 drivers) just displays the empty screen (or apple logo without verbose mode). If I remove the filevault2 drivers it says that it cannot load cursors, ui etc.

3) When I updated my original Mojave clover config (from 1.) with drivers and kext provided by LeLunZ I get different error:

Do you have any suggestions where to look, what can be the root of the issue?

I read some posts where a lot of people say FileVault2 takes a very long time to start 2-5 minutes. So just try to start with my config and FileVault driver and then let it run for 5 minutes. if the display turns black try to hit a key on the keyboard.
I got a weird problem with my startup, that sometimes the apple logo goes away and screen stays black. If I don't press a key the laptop will shutdown itself. if I press a key the apple logo comes again and login screen comes after a while!

My guess is that its some weird sleeping bug.

Hey, the thing is that with your config I cannot even get to the login screen (to provide encryption key). With my original config (or with kexts and drivers pulled from yours) I get past the apple logo almost immediately. I provide my password then the issue with gui comes up :(

Ugh, I've made it work with my original CLOVER config (probably the first or second oldest version available in the thread) with drivers and kexts pulled from your config @LeLunZ. To be honest I am not really sure what changed, probably some fv2 files. Anyway thanks for help, I was very close to reinstalling the system.

Guys, remember to update and backup your current configuration before you try to update the system to Catalina!

Häää, when you tried my config. Did you also tried my Clover Efi file?
And did you download the newest clover/uefi drivers?

I think that in the end I've used my old clover efi file with the drivers/kexts updated from your package.

Ok i previously had my Mojave running perfectly. I upgraded to Catalina and everything is working good, but i am having issues with Messages. it will not send SMS texts from my PC. I have logged out of all accounts, changed the SMbios info. anyone have any ideas why it would not be working?
