:beachball::beachball::beachball:

1. From now my config will support only z370n with external GPUs. I disabled all patches that are used for iGPU;
2. I disabled Audio patches. Z370n works fine without them;
3. config.plist ▸ Devices ▸ IntelFGX = 0×3E928086 (value for i5/i7 CPUs, before it was 0×3E918086 for i3);
4. config.plist ▸ Graphics ▸ ig-platform-id = 0x3E920003 (actual for external GPUs);
5. config.plist made from scratch.

Lilu ▸ 1.3.1
WhateverGreen ▸ 1.2.6


The easiest way to update Clover:
1. Backup your config.plist;
2. Download my current EFI folder;
3. Replace your EFI with my EFI;
4. Delete my config.plist and use your config.plist instead.

Kexts:
1. Navigate to downloaded Kexts for LE folder in Terminal;
2. Run command to copy kexts from to L/E;
Code:
sudo cp -R *.kext /Library/Extensions
3. Then, rebuild kext cache:
Code:
sudo kextcache -i /

Is the Sleep function still working with your current configuration?

Mine is waking up at some point after sleep and freezing the whole system, requiring a full shut down at the case switch to come back. :crazy:

Works fine. Run the script, I will check.

I took a look at the pmset log and apparently this is what's causing the sleep error: Platform Driver Failure during wake due to 0x00000021

However, a google search is not being very useful at helping understand that... Any ideas?

Thanks a lot! It happened again, so I'm definitely attaching the file. Please take a look when you have a chance.

I was wondering if by any chance you saw this post? https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/an-idiots-guide-to-lilu-and-its-plug-ins.260063/post-1805653. It look like Lilu 1.3.0 is breaking some plugins that are dependent on version 1.2.x...
I had this issue, but they fixed it in Lilu 1.3.1.

So, what I found:

1. You are using the beta version of Clover (4832). The last stable release is 4813;
2. Your drivers64UEFI and drivers64 have duplicated or unnecessary files;
3. You pmset -g is different. Try to match mine — https://github.com/b166ar/Mac-Mini-Killer#sleep

Try to use my EFI folder and my config.plist. Just remove all boot options that you don't need. And then edit your pmset settings.

I found a few syntax errors in my previous config.plist, so it is important to use my new config.plist as a template.

Install and run EssentialsList.command. It will generate archive with «problem reporting» files on your /Desktop. Attached this archive to your post and I will take a look.

I've also experienced random reboots. But this was a PSU problem…
-hi
still experience random reboots. other than that all seams to be working fine.
I've run the script.
cheers for making all that.
