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

Note: Before you update:
- Clover users must first disable or remove BlueToolFixup.kext in order to update. Otherwise the software update doesn't initialize it crashes System 'Settings'.
- 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.

Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;

Update to the latest Clover or OpenCore 0.8.8 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):
:ch: Follow the OCAT Guide:
:ch: After completing the Update, reboot.
:ch: Upon reaching the Desktop, open the Terminal and execute:
nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:opencore-version
Confirm you have updated OC to 0.8.8 or newer.

Download the Ventura 13.2. 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.​

Done! So far, another easy update!

OTA still doesn’t work for mine.
Success using software update on my Dell desktop.

10 minutes of pre-boot running, restart
10 minutes or so of boot into main system, with installation running. All works automatically.

Also note updates for my iOS 15 phone and my iOS 12 old iPad.
Uneventful update. So far, it's all good here. :wave:
OC 0.8.8. Just under 30 minutes, 3 reboots. All works well!

Updated to 13.2!

Standard problem with these Ventura updates. The first attempt with the smaller updater file fails, then when I try again, it downloads the larger updater, and it proceeds without any further problems.
OC 0.8.8 on i5-10400F, Asus Prime B560-Plus, RX 580, all went smolth!
Updated on OC 0.8.8 without any issues.
