Thanks for this info i need to test it! I also have sometimes laptop booting to RTC issue, let's say one every 4/5 boots, i am on opencore though. I also don't have VGA out in opencore (works in clover )
For RTC, I think you need to use Quirk to bypass RTC checksum fix, and also DSDT patch maybe:

RTC fix
FIND: 47017000 70000108
REPLACE: 47017000 70000102




For VGA try this:

EXTENSION PATCH
com.apple.driver.AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer
FIND: FF000000 01000000 20000000
REPLACE: 03060A00 00080000 87010000

Followed Rehabmans guide in 2022 with all the recommended files, pre-isntall and install to
make fresh new 10.14.6 usb installer, works
and fresh clean new 10.14.6 install, works

post install
followed rehabmans guide for post install
didnt boot. reboot loop.

updated to clover v5102 on usb and pc
copied all files in original efi/clover/* made by rehabmans guide to the new v5102 clover/drivers, /kexts
no audio, no track pad, no wifi.

can see the *.efi *.kexts with -64 on end of filename corelate to the files created by new clover version 5102, is the bootloader double loading 2 versions of the same files. delete the old files made with rehabmans guide, with -64 at the end?


someone also did a recent fresh new usb installer and fresh new clean install?
solved?

thanks

i use xplist app to alter config.plist as it's an opensource app "see pic"

"delete the EFI.?

./install_acpi.sh install_4x40s_hires RM

maybe if theres a bug if the RM switch is used? not sure how to undo to test

"./install_acpi.sh install_8x0g1G1_haswell RM"

"./install_acpi.sh install_8x0g1_haswell"

Copy the appropriate plist for your hardware to EFI/Clover/config.plist on your EFI partition.

for wifi you need probookatheros.kext in efi/clover/kexts others and also airportatheros40.kext in Library/extensions
Also if you want bluetoooth, you need some more kexts

I should warn you, you will probably get some slight artifacts/graphics glitches with mojave or catalina, although I had both fully working I've gone back to High Sierra for the moment

look in folder your user name/project/hotpatch and copy to efi/clover/acpi/patched

agree - mojave 10.14.6 to be exact

tested clean install with clover 4920, completed the post install guide of rehabman

the clover boot screen is messed. can just see enough text to pick what to boot.

can only see

root device uuid is...
end initbootstruct
start load ramdisk
end loadramdisk
startrandomseed
end randomseed

long boot time. after a longer than usual wait for boot 5 mins. made it past login screen

wifi bt appears to work.

filevault works very slow wait for encrypting to finish.

for audio try acidanthera's applealc 1.7.1 with the boot argument -applbklbeta,

thanks tried it again. just the audio not working. greyed out in menu bar.




followed the science again in 2022. Rehabmans guide with some mods.

thanks. testing with usb lan to get the xcode-select install working

next trying clover v5119.
