Today Apple released macOS 10.15.1 Update, a major software update to macOS Catalina. Update any supported system using the built-in Software Update functionality through the System Preferences pane or by using the standalone installer available from Apple.com.
What we know about the 10.15.1 Update so far...
  • macOS Build 19B88
  • Updated Intel and AMD graphics drivers
    • Initial support for AMD Navi graphics cards
    • AMD users may need to update to WhateverGreen 1.3.4
  • Updated audio drivers- established users of Catalina with AppleALC or VoodooHDA should not need to update.
  • Updated USB drivers- those using Port Limit Removal patch may have to update to new patches for 10.15.1
  • Install macOS Catalina App has been updated - If you downloaded macOS Catalina from the App Store prior to today, and you want to have the latest version on your backup installer USB, simply log into the Mac App Store and click Download. The updated Install macOS Catalina App can be found in the Applications folder.
Testing is now underway- this post will be updated. Good luck, and let us know how it goes! Report your results here.

Please post help requests in the Catalina Desktop Support Forum section (not in this thread).


Pre Update Notes
:
- This update may break some of your Catalina functions, like audio. Make sure you backup first. See @CaseySJ's CCC script that not only backs up your Catalina installation but also your EFI folder. :thumbup:

- Make sure you use the latest versions of the Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext and WhateverGreen.kext. They will be in the Downloads > Kexts area.

Here's the step by step way to update:
:ch:Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner (see the link above to CaseySJ's script) or SuperDuper;

:ch: (Optional - See Note) Update to the latest Clover
Note: If you don't use the tonymacx86 Clover Builds (in Download menu) to update Clover, be advised that Clover r5000+ may cause problems as it revises the Clover folder contents.

:ch: Update Lilu, WhatEverGreen and AppleALC using KextBeast. (Remove any kexts on your Desktop; place the three kexts on the Desktop; and run KextBeast choosing the /Library/Extensions/ folder. If you have these kexts in .../Clover/kexts/other/ folder, don't use KextBeast, but just drag and drop into the .../other/ folder.

:ch: If you are updating from 10.15.0, then you don't need to apply any new Port Limit Removal Patches. If you are updating from macOS before Catalina, apply any 10.15.0 Port Limit Removal Patches. Better yet, if you have created a SSDT-USB, then you're all set.

:ch: Download the Catalina 10.15.1 Update in Post #1 or the update from Apple's Mac App Store and run it - the updater will reboot upon completion.
Note: Update will reboot twice; each time Clover picks the correct boot partition. So, sit back and relax.

ch: Done! So far, another easy update! :thumbup:

The download speed is now very slow... I may let it update itself and sleep at the same time.

Hmmm... I updated and lost graphics on my dual Vega 64. I am using the latest Lilu/Whatevergreen. Still trying to figure it out...
Same here...
Black screen on install and nothing after reboot

Clover r5098
WEG, lilu are up to date..

I hear the sound when I change the volume with the keyboard, macOS booted correctly but black screen.

I have set my iGPU in headless mode. So I can’t have picture with integrated graphics.

I had this same issue with the beta. There’s a boot arguement you need to add to Clover. Unfortunately, I’m not at home and don’t remember it, but hopefully it’ll help limit your searching for a solution.
