macOS 13.5.1 Update


Once again, thanks to the TonyMac & OpenCore community, unparalleled success!
Yet another quick and easy update to Ventura 13.5.1 on all three of my daily drivers.
12 mins to install once the update had downloaded + the usual three reboots.
Booting via OpenCore 0.9.4 + latest kexts.

Had to do some processor tweaks to the Kernel "Patch" section of my config.plist for Ventura 13.3+ - but I eventually got it. I was on 13.2. Initially, it wouldn't boot to the updater image at all. Switched over to verbose and saw where it was halting.

For Ventura 13.3+ you need to pay close attention to the "_cpu_id_set_info" patch in the kernel settings. The hex values are different for Ventura 13.3+. The updated plist entries are out on Github for anyone wondering.

Updated to OC 0.9.4
Everything went smoothly.
Would not install using the update. I had to download the full OS and install it. Still working on OC 0.8.5, no kext updates needed.
An easy update to Ventura 13.5.1 with OpenCore 0.9.4 and the newest kexts.
