Prior enabling RadeonDeInit, I have WEG. But it freezed. I read the guide AMD compatibility at #1. It says my card RX570 uses RadeonDeInit. After enabling that I have not encounter freeze yet. I removed WEG because I read somewhere if it uses RadeonDeInit I should remove WEG.
I recalled I did put back WEG at one stage while troubleshooting but it didn’t solve my airdrop issue though RadeonDeInit was enabled. I can try disable and enable WEG and observe the freeze and airdrop.
Thanks.

Pay particular attention to what year the guides were written. Most of what you are linking to is pre-Catalina and quite obsolete.

I just read the first post. I suggest you ignore it, assuming Catalina, and focus on WEG, getting rid of any RadeonDeInit stuff. It's not required anymore. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/still-need-radeondeinit.258478/ implies that the last time it was required was all the way back in 10.13.x. That's now years-ago.

As of 10.13.6 RadeonDeInit likely isn't needed. Make two config files, one with it enabled and one without, so you can easily flip between them at bootup, and try without. I don't think you need it.

Your fakesmc files are out of sync, as of the zipfile you posted yesterday.

Apologies for not being make clear earlier. I am running on HS 10.13.6. I will try once I get home on my MAC.
Thanks again.

You are right. However, the price will drop very soon I think already somewhere in january, because in this moment the price was set so much high, that nobody will buy it. On the other hand the polaris line, 570, 580 cards are terrrible, in terms of noise, heat and power consumption. I wish nvidia would be supported again with the great 1660ti, or 1650 super but they may never will be....

I agree and 570/580 has proven to be extremely reliable with macOS.
