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.

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

Hello.

I am building my hackintosh using i5-4590T and Intel HD4600.

I am using platform-id 0x0D0220003 and spoof device-id to 0x412 for Intel HD Graphics 4600, but the patch generated state that it is "Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller".

Is it normal? I want to have it specify as Intel HD4600 Graphics, is it just as simple as I changed the string to "Intel HD4600 Graphics" while keeping the other entry in the patch? I have used Hackintool v2.9 and already update to newest version, but both results the same, i.e. Intel Xeon etc etc.

The display works normal though, with Metal and QE/CI support.

Thank you.
