Just follow the guide! https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Post-Install/universal/update.html#updating-opencore-and-macosHey guys i don't know if this is the best place to ask but I was wondering where can I find good intuitive information on how to upgrade Open Core versions. my updates have always been messy and i can't find any good tutorials online. If you could share a guide, link or point me in the right direction, that would be great.
Once you replaced the needed files (EFI/BOOT/BOOTx64.efi, EFI/OC/OpenCore.efi and EFI/OC/Drivers/OpenRuntime), use OCConfigCompare to see what needs to be deleted/added in your config.plist. You can also use ocvalidate but it might mention syntax issues that are not necessarily fundamental.
If your config.plist passes both tests, you're good to go.
My personal advice, although having switched recently from Clover: there seems to be many changes between one version and the next, so that you're better off updating from 0.6.x to 0.6.x+1 when it's released (every first monday of each month) instead of waiting and updating a few months later.
And of course follow @miliuco's excellent "Opencore 0.6.x > 0.6.x+1 differences" threads that sum up all the important information.
