I just waited until it restarted, after that it showed that around 12 minutes remaining and then it successfully booted.
How long did you wait? My installation was stuck on "Estimating time remaining..." for about a half hour with no progress made, so I just reverted back.

Successfully updated. USB3, Audio, Video, Ethernet, Wifi, iMessage, AirDrop is working! I had to change the last boot option on Clover to boot from my macOS partition. I also updated Clover and kexts with Kext Updater and made a Time Machine backup before updating. Other than that, updated like a real Mac.

Ever since i changed from GTX 960 to RX 580 (in order to run Mojave) and took my time and made a custom DSDT for USB3, i've been updating my Hackintosh without any issues since first or second release of the Mojave. Before it, i mostly run into the problems with Ethernet, Audio and USB3. First two wasn't a big problem to fix, but USB3 bugged me a lot. Now it's just a breeze.

I was actually watching a TV show on the laptop while i was updating my Hackintosh, but it sure wasn't stuck for half an hour. I just glanced at the screen and i saw that it doesn't show how much time it was remaining, i thought that it's odd, but then in around 5 minutes it restarted, after that it showed that around 12 minutes remaining and then it successfully booted. I don't know how long it was stuck with no time remaining, but not for 30 minutes for sure.

Catalina put all the system folders in read-only, in try to change perditions without success.
Actually you should try to change partitions not perditions. Not much you can do if you're in a state of perdition.

Up and running from a fresh install - That's my thing kind of pedantic I know, but it gives me the feeling of getting rid of all the accumulated possible crap picked up from the Betas.

Has anyone tested the AppleTV app with previous purchases? I'm interested to know of there's any handshake issues or DRM issues (please start a new post for that though)?
NO problem here!

Had to upgrade to the latest Clover - but no issues otherwise - do we still need to use -lilubetaall for the whatevergreen/lilu kexts?
