I practiced the upgrade on a HDD copy. Then bit the bullet and upgraded the main SSD. It worked! I was reluctant to give up some 32-bit apps (like Photoshop CS3) but can always boot back into a Mojave clone I made.
Three restarts and good to go. I appreciated the careful instructions to remove all Hack kexts to the EFI first. All seems solid at this point - though I never got sleep to work on this rig and haven't tested that yet.

An easy update.

I moved the kexts as suggested by Stork, and, after 25 minutes, the system was up again.
The first test showed no audio, but after another reboot I had my AppleALC back again.

Thanks for all the hard work to the team at tonymacx86.com!

Done, took about 20 minutes. @CaseySJ and @pastrychef - Rumor has it that Thunderbay4 will not cause kernel panics with 10.15.3. Testing to follow.

Updated via download the macOS 10.15.3 Update from 10.15.2, no issues. I had to select the correct drive in Clover 5103 on three reboots. Install took about 21 minutes.

Pulled all my extra drives, then updated Clover, Lilu, and Whatevergreen, and then updated to 10.15.3 with absolutely no problems! Didn’t even have to pick which drive to boot with each restart.

Thanks to all the help from everyone here!

Hi, maybe a noob question; do you copy your kexts to the new folder or reinstall them and delete the old ones ?
Kind regards, Michiel
You'll need to use "Clover Configurator" to mount the EFI folder, then copy the extra kexts from /Library/Extensions/ to EFI/.../Clover/kexts/Other/. Then delete the old kexts from /Library/Extensions/, and rebuild the MacOS Cache using the code mentioned.

You may want to have a quick read on Clover Configurator first, before attempting the upgrade. Good luck! :)

I don't get it. The update installs flawlessly, but then it just boots to 10.15.2 like nothing happened. I'll try the combo updater now.

check that you have enough disk space before you start (macOS Catalina requires not less than 16GB)
if you are running out of disk space, the update process seems to be OK, but it will go back to the old version
