@CaseySJ Hey mate! The Bluetooth keeps dropping connection after the 10.15.5 update, any idea about the issue?
I am using the Broadcom BCM94360CD wifi card.
There is no definite solution. We experiment with different options until we find something that works. For example:
  • If you made a full bootable backup before updating to 10.15.5, try booting the previous version of macOS to re-verify that Bluetooth is or is not reliable. There's nothing in 10.15.5 that specifically impairs Bluetooth functionality, so you might be reaching for a causal connection where none exists.
  • We also recommend using an outboard antenna such as the 2-prong antenna that comes in the Designare box. We can connect the middle two ports of the BCM94360CD to the 2-prong antenna. One of those middle two ports is used for Bluetooth.
  • Also try resetting the Bluetooth Module (simply search this thread for "reset bluetooth module").
  • Some users have found that disabling 2.4 GHz band on their WiFi router helps because Bluetooth also uses the 2.4 GHz band, but different channels.
If the problem persists, please let us know.

Has anybody found a fix for this? I would like to be able to plug in the usb for corsair AIO for RGB control.
There’s a Mac port in the works for OpenRGB, check out the macos_devel branch, I’ve used this to control the RGB on my NZXT AIO GPU cooler and fans.

It lists your ram modules as controllable, but I don’t have those modules so can’t confirm it works.


edit: this wont help with your sleep issues, but at least you won’t need a VM anymore

Is there a rev2 of this board coming out?
and what does that really mean... should i wait before purchasing another z390 Designare?
We're referring to Gigabyte's new GC-Titan Ridge version 2.0. A link was provided here:

Thanks for your suggestions!
If your webpage uses any of the functions in @joevt's ThunderboltUtil, please add an acknowledgement statement. Something like this:
  • Uses 'ThunderboltUtil' by joevt.​
  • (notice that 'ThunderboltUtil' is hyperlinked to the gist.github source)​
I even don't know how to open and use ThunderboltUtil :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I need the mini guide of that script because every time I want to test a SSDT I must ask to you 2.

My script is based on my own php + Sunshine's JavaScript to calculate CRC 8, my own JavaScript to convert Vendor Device names to HEX, a modified Sushine's script to calculate and get Cheskum 32_c, again some php and Javascript to assemble all together and make it easy to use. Ill publish it on GitHub when everything is done.

First, the title "HackinDROM" becomes too small on this screen, so it should be same size as the home screen.
Easy to fix!

Proposal:
  • After user selects motherboard or Thunderbolt add-in-card from the main menu, then show them something like this:
This is how I wanted to do but I also wanted to keep the one-click method for those who don't want change the names

@Ayvan pointed this out a couple of weeks ago in the Z490 Vision D thread. Once the Mac port is available, it could be an impressive all-in-one solution (with GUI).

Understood. @Elias64Fr and I were not able to get the correct CRC32_C checksum from sunshine's website. Do you know if your checksum is correct? This can be tested by actually using the DROM and checking IORegistryExplorer --> Thunderbolt Switch (or in some cases we can check for IOThunderboltFamily error message in system log).

My proposal is still (pretty much) one click! :)
