Yes, thank you!

I saw that and thought, Oh, ok this should be easier... :rolleyes:

I followed all the instructions, and rebooted and then got the Apple logo... no progress bar, and stuck. Got back in with my installation USB device and am trying to figure it out.

Using OCC 2.36.0.0, in the Kernel section, all the entries have an ExecutablePath of: Contents/MacOS/xxxxxxx
If I put one in for RadeonBoost, I get the stuck Apple. If I go in and wipe that out and leave it blank, then all is good... but I assume RadeonBoost likely is NOT working, and there is some other "secret steps" that weren't mentioned or have changed recently.

Anyone?

Ah, right forgot to clarify that:
You need to leave the "ExecutablePath" empty, and fill "Contents" in to be "Contents/Info.plist."
Then make sure you've got the check box enabled if you're using OCC.

Make sense?
Awesome man! I appreciate your help... OK, going to try that now.

Ok, yep, that's how I last left it.

I suppose it's running then... Is there a quick way to confirm if it's running or not?

Only way I know is to Geekbench it without, then with and compare the scores.
I'm using Hackintool v3.4.0 and under extensions, I can see the following running, but NOT RadeonBoost:

AppleALC
IntelMausiEthernet
Lilu
NVMeFix
USBInjectAll
VirtualSMC
WhateverGreen

So I suppose there is still some trick to getting it to go. :roll2:

FWIW: I've started putting my boot drives into my Thunderbolt-connected Blackmagic Design Multidock II and booting into verbose mode so that I can monitor disk activity on a new clean install without using Migration Assistant: Those posts you've seen around the web about periodic black screens/unresponsive screens on startup or shutdown in Mojave or Big Sur? I can now see that there is sometimes extensive disk activity on startup and sometimes on shutdown. Although I'm running Open Core and I run my rig 24/7, it seems that running sudo kextcache -i / after a major install still has its use. It's happened a couple times and it seems to be related to a problem with Keychain on a brand new unmigrated account/user setup. After I signed out of all iCloud services and nuked the associated user account the problem vanished. My workaround for iCloud services: Continue using a real Mac for everything iCloud related. Anymore, I never have a Mojave SSD and a Big Sur SSD plugged in at the same time.

This is correct. RadeonBoost is a “codeless” kext.
