The name of your macOS SSD is "iMac Pro". So let's check on FakeSMC and perhaps get rid of it. We can also rebuild the kernel cache.
Code:
cd /Volumes/"iMac Pro"/Library/Extensions
ls
Please post the output. Then if any other third-party kexts are still present, we can remove them. For example, if FakeSMC is present, we can do this:
Code:
rm -rf FakeSMC.kext
And we can repeat this for each FakeSMC sensor kext. When we're done we can rebuild the kernel cache:
Code:
cd /
kextcache -i /Volumes/"iMac Pro"
So I proceed to remove all fakesmc kexts and post the output.

P.S. I just had a freeze.

Did the freeze occur while booted into Recovery?

There are other Hackintosh kexts in the photo:
  • AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext
  • AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext
  • FakePCIID.kext
  • FakePCIID_Intel_GbX.kext
  • IntelMausiEthernet.kext
  • SmallTreeIntel82576.kext
  • USBInjectAll.kext
  • XHCI-unsupported.kext
These should also be removed.

In fact, it would be best to copy kexts from the Zip file at the bottom of the Catalina Mini-Guide (copy them to CLOVER/kexts/Other).

It's also recommended to use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC, but that can be done later. One thing at a time...

It's working and it's updated also!

CaseySJ, as part of my upgrade to 10.15.4 I decided to go ahead and bring my system up to snuff with a couple of the items that have been added in the past recent months. These are enabling native NVRAM and move from using AptioMemoryFix.efi to OcQuirks.efi.

The move to native NVRAM went off without a problem. No issues

However testing OcQuirks has produced less than favorable effects.

My test was to build a USB stick with my current Clover EFI on it. (this is all that is on this USB stick). I then tested to make sure I could boot and get to Clover and select my "Macintosh HD" for booting MacOS, this all works no problem. I then modified the USB stick EFI by removing AptioMemoryFix.efi and adding OcQuirks.plist, OcQuirks.efi, and FwRuntimeServices.efi to my EFI (clover/drivers/efi). Booting off this stick now hangs at the Gigabyte "Insist on Ultra Durable" Logo (2nd display of the Logo without the menu options at the bottom of the screen for entering the BIOS or boot menu). I have also tried the OcQuirks-4.efi and corresponding FwRuntimeServices.efi file and these too produce a hung machine.

Any thoughts as to why I might be failing where so many others have had great success?

@CaseySJ The problems with 10.15.4 may relate to KernelPM and AppleIntelCPUPM patches breaking because Apple changed some things to add Comet/Ice Lake support.

Anyone having issues that has an MSR patched? I installed it no problem so far and am still in 5105 Clover, though all kexts are latest release version.

Yes the freeze occured while in terminal in recovery mode.
So I removed the rest of the kexts you suggested. The "extensions" folder is attached.
I copied all the kexts from "mini catalina guide" to efi. The "other" folder is attached.
I rebuilt kextcache and repair permisions using hackintool (photo attached).
I changed from clover configurator inject kexts from "detect" to "Yes".
Also shall I leave applealc, lilu and weg from catalina mini guide or download the latest ones?
Is everything ok now?

P.S. I just noticed that both fakesmc and virtualsmc are in kexts/other so I deleted fakesmc.

Good job!
  • First make a bootable backup! :) You must know I was going to say that...
  • Then yes it's okay to update to latest Lilu, WEG, and AppleALC.
  • Because you're running VirtualSMC, please check the CLOVER/UEFI/drivers folder to make sure SMCHelper.efi is not present. If it is, remove it.
