Hey @headkaze! Just got back from my trip, and trying to finally sort out my USB ports. I think I might have a new bug for you: all of my ports are duplicated! Anything I can do to help bug fix?
It's not really a bug just the backward compatility isn't working. If you do a "Clear All" then "Refresh" it should correctly list your ports again.

Woo hoo! That did the trick - I have all my USB ports working exactly as they should now! Thanks so much for all your patience and help!!

I did a fresh install of Catalina and installed kexts using Hackintool to L/E. I was expecting problems and/or a prompt to mount the root partition as read/write, but none of this happened and it just installed the kexts. Is mounting the root as read/write no longer needed? And what about disabling Gatekeeper? Also no longer needed? (no prompt for that either)

Anyone who can confirm this behavior?

@XanderW,

You are correct in that Gatekeeper needs to be disabled and the system drive flagged as Read/Write to install kexts into /L/E on Catalina.

Hackintool automatically does this when you use the install kexts feature (on a Catalina system) so you only need to enter your admin password once. The process is documented in this guide :-

Thanks! I read that, but in fact none of this did happen when I installed the kexts. So I wonder: is mounting as read/write and disabling gatekeeper not needed anymore as of macOS 10.15.3? (I tested also using finder and I can just add/delete files in L/E without having to mount the system drive as read/write or without having to disable gatekeeper)

@XanderW,

Hummm that does not sound right, Catalina 10.15.3 still needs Gatekeeper disabled and the system drive flagged as R/W in order to install kexts in to /L/E/.

Sounds like the drives permissions have been globally changed or SIP is completely disabled.

Cheers

Hi, headkaze, it's a great work! I have a suggestion, Boot and Extensions tabs have 3 buttons under the window. Refresh and Download are mutual buttons. Boot's button order is Download, Refresh whereas Extension's Refresh, Download. For consistency and UX I suggest Refresh - Download - X order for both of them or at least same order for both pages.

Btw, Boot Refresh button on v3.2.5 is no longer working for me.

Cheers

There's a strange renumbering of version 5105 which is throwing it off.
