Although this is about Mojave - can perhaps someone share his extension folder for Catalina? I tried a lot but only get a black screen after updating...then reinstall....and again...X2G2 i7...
I've actually used this to install both Mojave and Catalina onto a G1. The main issue I have with the installs is that the trackpad isn't working (on either Mojave or Catalina). It doesn't even work in the installer. I've read the entire thread and looked everywhere but can't seem to get it to work. Maybe it's because my processor is the M7 not the M5, I dunno.

I'm running Catalina, upgraded through software update from Mojave. The SSDTs are fine as is, but you need to make sure that you update all of the kexts to their latest versions and use the Bluetooth kexts from the acidanthera repo (Brcm3 instead of 2). If I get some time, I'll do a clean install write for Catalina.

The USB configuration is slightly different for the G1, you are probably using the wrong SSDT-UIAC file so the port for the touchpad is disabled. Take a look at post one and you'll see a separate SSDT-UIAC meant for your machine. Hope that helps.

SMC Battery manager works fine for me on Catalina. Make sure you have updated all your kexts to their latest and rebuild your cache. If that doesn't work, then post your troubleshooting files and I'll take a look when I can.

I'm not really clear on what the benefits might be. Clover works well and is pretty easy to set up.

for now is OK, Opencore much like Clover Pro. anyway thanks your guide and looking for your Catalina version if possible.

because i download your EFI to drive Catalina.not working at all.
beside Mojave to Cataline and also your's X2 G2, and mine is X2 G1, much hardware difference.
and finally i decide to clean install Catalina.
without any SSDT/DSDT or hot patches.
but it's stuck reboot loop when power on. would u help me ? thank you.

Processor: Dual-Core Intel Core m7
RAM: 8G
HDD:1T samsung 860EVO

The picture doesn't mean much without your EFI folder, I would only be guessing. In terms of hotpatching, there are only subtle differences between the G1 and G2. And finally, using the EFI folder from post #1 would never have worked with Catalina because none of the kexts have been updated.

right, so I just use your #1 EFI to install Catalina, so the system is clean.
after that, I install Clover 5103 ,canceled all the hot patchs, DSDT/SSDT files.

and just made mofication base on the default config.plist:
1. change GFX0 to IGPU.
2. Device - Properties: AAPL,ig-platform-id - Properties Value:03001E19
(G1 should be HD515, platform-id 0x191e0003)
3. just keep basic drivers

and I upload my EFI folder, any suggestion would be fine, thank you.
