You can have as many patches as you need. Some people have a screenful. Useful too that you can actually enable or disable each one if you need to for testing etc.

So yes, mouse-click on the small "+" bottom-left of the KextsToPatch list and add the two new lines, leaving what you already have alone.

:)

Beautiful, thank you for the clarification!

Say can I use the same USB port limit removal patches that worked in 10.15.3 for 10.15.6?

It seems I can't find any info on this online, posts are always only refering to 10.15.0 or .1. Or are port limit removal patches not the way anymore (with a succeeding USB kext creation via Hackintool)?

Hi all. Hope everyone is keeping safe. I'm seeing Microsoft Edge appearing in my USB list in IORegistryExplorer. Is that normal?

With the release of macOS Catalina 10.15.0 you'll probably need a port-limit removal patch to begin your USB configuration on a new build.

Here it is:

As you can see we only need two patches for Catalina as opposed to four, for Mojave.

Line 1 -

Name*: com.apple.iokit.IOUSBHostFamily
Find*: 83FB0F0F
Replace*: 83FB3F0F

Line 2 -

Name* com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCI
Find*: 83F90F0F
Replace*: 83F93F0F

Remember you will need USBInjectAll.kext installed to enable this to work.

Thank you!

Just for my understanding what this patches do. All USB ports got recognized and are working. Is this patch to boost up a downgraded speed of the USB ports or moreover to get the ports working as such?
