Strange. Since I've done the update to 10.15, my system seems to be much more unstable. The Boot-time skyrocketed up to 2 minutes, starting from the Cover Boot screen. I've encountered problems with sleep and reactivating my computer afterwards. Problems I didn't have with 10.14. The problem is that I have no clue where to start to improve it. What things and settings need a change? Do you have any clue?

As I have no idea what you have done or tried, that's a very difficult question to answer.

If you have followed my build, you should be good. If you have varied, well, that's a bit tougher to deal with.

I found the reason for the slow boot. It is connected to Filevault 2 and likely outdated UEFI drivers.
With the help of these to posts (link1, link2) i changed some UEFi drivers, seems like I have now a weird mixture between Clover and OpenCore. I'm not yet prepared to change to OpenCore, but will likely change in the next few months. Somebody else changing soon?

Ps. Updated to 10.15.1, but needed to install WhateverGreen 1.3.4 to make it work.

FileVault is broken for me with Catalina 10.15.1 + Clover. It worked with Catalina 10.15.0 + Clover.

FileVault works with Catalina 10.15.1 + OpenCore.

Yes, i managed to enable FV2 as well, with changing these drivers and kexts:
Basically remove:

AppleImageCodec.efi
AppleImageLoader.efi
AppleKeyAggregator.efi
AppleUITheme.efi
AptioInputFix.efi
Ps2MouseDxe.efi
FirmwareVolume.efi
SMCHelper.efi

And add:

AppleGenericInput.efi
AppleUiSupport.efi
VirtualSmc.efi

Of course, replace FakeSMC kexts with VirtualSMC kexts.
As far as I know, i use now Clover and OpenCore elements. Is that true?

I looked into OpenCore, however, given it is still "beta", I am not moving to it just yet...

I'm not using FileVault, so I guess that explains why I'm not having trouble...

You are using the drivers from vit9696 that he developed prior to OpenCore's release. Many of those elements have evolved even further since OpenCore. Some have become part of OpenCore itself.

I had the same drivers you are using installed and FileVault is still broken with Catalina 10.15.1 + Clover.

Strange. For me it works so far. Did you update to WhateverGreen 1.3.4 to use 10.15.1?

Yes, same for me, I think I will still wait some months due to my limited knowledge... :)

Yes. Please post your EFI folder. I'd like to compare differences with mine. TIA!!

Yeah, limited knowledge here too. Would like to understand more of how the internals work, but maybe that's a couple years of study...
