I was using macOS Catalina GM without any problems with my setup, but after trying a new install with macOS Catalina Final Version, when i reach the setup screen my main screen keeps on flickering. Should i update any kexts for my Radeon VII?

Does someone have the same problem?

you guys with the ASUS boards, you definitely enabled -disablegfxfirmware, and put the WE/Lilu kexts in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other, right? (and maybe -lilubetaall, but that's only something I saw, didn't help me in the end) sorry I don't have the stamina to read the whole thread, and my answers are uncontrollably wordy even when I want to say something simple... hope you guys manage to get it working soon
I tried that but the boot process is stuck at "apfs_module_start:1683"
I'm giving up for now..

Direct upgrade from Mojave to Catalina using App Store. No issues so far. Took about 30 minutes total, of which about 20 minutes was just a black screen with HDD activity lights blinking. Patience is the key. Only preparations made were the usual create a bootable backup (I use CCC), update kexts (Lilu, WhateverGreen, AppleALC) using Hackintool. So far so good, no obvious issues as of yet. Thanks again!

EDIT: FYI, Clover version used is 4961

If you attempt the installation in verbose mode and see "apfs_module_start:1683", see Post #264.
