Hey there. I am currently trying to replace Clover with OpenCore by following this guide. It states:

These four steps are fully described in the OpenCore 0.7.0 guide below. Please follow that guide now.

The linked guide doesn't seem to fully describe those steps, however. I have found another post (** Using HackinDROM App to Create New EFI **) ... am I supposed to use this? I'm a bit unsure of what to do next after removing Clover RC scripts, so I figured I'd just ask to be safe. I also see ** OpenCore 0.7.3 EFI for Designare Z390 ** but this seems to be a guide for upgrading OpenCore.

Thanks for the help.

Hi, @CaseySJ! I followed your method explained under "Injecting audio and Enabling on-board HDMI". Now I am able to boot to my desktop screen. Thanks a lot for your support!!!.
Can you please confirm if my "Devices" section in config.plist is having only what is needed for the long run stability?
Glad to hear it. Yes it’s good for long term stability!



Thanks a ton!!!
Update : in VideoProc max redolution of 4K is support in H.264 and HEVC.
In about Mac the memory shown is 1536MB. Don't know if this value is correct....
Don't know if there is anything more to be done!!!...thanks
1536MB is perfect. Nothing more to do! Just note that sometimes we experience minor graphics glitches when using iGPU. This has gotten a lot better in latest releases of macOS.

I'll update the Clover-to-OpenCore conversion guide momentarily. You are right, however, that we can Use HackinDROM to generate a fully configured EFI that even includes custom serial numbers. We can use the Create EFI button (click here). Screenshots in the HackinDROM guides are from an earlier version, but it's straightforward to apply those guides to version 2.0.0. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hi guys, just a question about the monthly process of updating OpenCore. I am having a hard time finding a forum location where people discuss compatibility of the latest OpenCore configurations vs the latest OS X configurations. Probably a dumb question, but is it safe to assume that the latest release of OpenCore has generally been tested against the latest release of OSX? I am guessing that this is the purpose of monthly OpenCore updates. Thx in advance, you guys rock!
The Acidanthera team that develops OpenCore and numerous other kernel extensions we rely upon has been doing a phenomenal job of preserving and even improving compatibility with both trailing and leading versions of macOS.

For example, OpenCore supported Big Sur since the first public beta. OpenCore supported Monterey since the first public beta (some changes were necessary for Bluetooth firmware injection in related kexts). OpenCore has kept up with macOS and promises to continue doing so.

Is there any harm in using the older OpenCore 0.6.4 with the latest version of Big Sur 11.6

I just updated from Catalina to Big Sur with success (thanks again to Casey's superb guides), and I was on OC 0.6.4 prior to the upgrade. So thinking to keep as is as it is working well....

The following OpenCore 0.7.3 EFI folders have been uploaded to HackinDROM (v2.0.0 or newer needed):
  • Gigabyte Z390 Designare
  • Gigabyte Z390 Designare w/Intel Wireless
  • Gigabyte Z490 Vision D
  • Gigabyte Z490 Vision D w/Intel Wireless
  • Gigabyte Z490 Vision G (not D)
  • Gigabyte B550 Vision D
  • Gigabyte B550 Vision D (BIOS F13)
  • Asus X99 Deluxe II
  • ASRock X570 Taichi
Casey,

Just downloaded HackinDROM v2.0.0 beta. I'm running OC 0.7.2 Z490 Vision D Intel Wireless which I also have installed on my test flash drive. When I mount the flash drive using HackinDROM, I'm told that I have OC 0.7.2 and that I'm up to date. Checked configuration settings and they seem correct (correct MB with intel wireless). Am I missing something?

Thanks
Rand

It's perfectly okay to stay on OpenCore 0.6.4 for the time being. If everything is working, then it's mostly optional to upgrade. Under the hood improvements are regularly made, so at some point it would be a good idea to install the latest. This can always be done initially on the EFI partition of a USB flash drive without touching the main macOS SSD.
