Has anyone gotten this build up to Sierra yet?

I get to a gray screen and the beachball, and it's stuck.

Not sure what I'm missing in the upgrade steps...

Make sure that you have FakeSMC.kext in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other.

Hey guys, I just want to report that this build can easily upgrade to Sierra without any problem. Remember to use 16Gb USB thumb drive, and the process is straightforward just like previous version of MacOS. After the post installation, remember to remove the installation USB otherwise the screen will never displays the correct resolution. Reboot your computer and you done.

For my system, I did a fresh installation and everything seem to works very well. All USB ports, Ethernet port, sound and my three monitors are working fine.

Did you have to change your system definition or anything else? I'm still running 3,1 - heard that the older Mac definitions arent' supported any longer...

Thanks!

Yes, If you use Multibeast 9, the default system definition is 14,1.
I'm using 14,1 and everything work very well so far.

Anybody successfully upgrade to Sierra on this rig without having to perform a clean install?

I'd like to make the leap from El Cap to Sierra but I'm currently running a smooth 3,1 and have always had strange audio pops on 14,1 or otherwise

I just did yesterday. The only issue was sound, everything else was perfect. Took 2h30 (30 to instal, 2h to fix the sound :p). Same build except for the GTX being a non ti 660.
