Pre Update Notes
:
- This update may break some of your Ventura functions. Make sure you backup first. :thumbup:

Note: Before you update, make sure your USB ports are properly mapped. I recommend you use this procedure:

Here's the step by step way to update OC:
- Make sure you use the latest versions of the Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext and WhateverGreen.kext.

:ch:
Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;

:ch:
Update to the latest Clover or OpenCore 0.8.6 or newer.
See the tonymacx86 Clover Builds (in Download menu) to update Clover. To update your OpenCore, see this guide. To convert from Clover to Open Core, see this guide.
:ch: Download OCAuxiliaryTools (OCAT):
https://github.com/ic005k/OCAuxiliaryTools
:ch: Follow the OCAT Guide:
https://github.com/5T33Z0/OC-Little-Translated/blob/main/D_Updating_OpenCore/README.md
:ch: After completing the Update, reboot.
:ch: Upon reaching the Desktop, open the Terminal and execute:
Code:
nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:opencore-version
Confirm you have updated OC to 0.8.6 or newer.

:ch:
Download the Ventura 13.1. Update from Apple's Mac App Store using System Preferences > Software Update, and run it - the updater will reboot upon completion.
Note: Update will reboot two times; each time Clover/OpenCore picks the correct boot partition. So, sit back and relax.​

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

Unfortunately OTA didn’t allow me to update further that it had to download the whole this time. Hope 13.1 won’t happen again.

Successful update, but already finding lots of new bugs.

These are two annoying me the most and affect real macs and hack:

If you attempt to do literally anything with iCloud in settings app the settings app just deadlocks. you can't even drag window around without it being a slide show. iCloud utterly hoses settings app.

Also, if you get texts on Messages app and read them, they are still sent to iPhone/Apple Watch anyways because macOS isn't properly flagging the app as in use on device.

Already updated last week when this was the RC release. So far, so good (my system does have an issue staying asleep but I think that's due to switching from a Fenvi Broadcom-based WiFi 5 card to an Intel-based WiFi 6E one).

Updated from 13.01 to 13.1, using software update. Running OC 0.8.7 and updated kexts. Updated as it should, and I walked away. I needed to reboot manually when I returned to my machine.
