Hi.
My system works perfectly, but I have a problem: After waking from sleep, the menus of the finder and the dock go very slow and stumble.
If I force to sleep always when returning the same happens.
If I restart the user session everything is correct.
I think it didn't happen to me before.
Has anyone got the same?

very grateful to the forum and teacher Caseysj

tanks to all

Stage 1: Boot a working copy of macOS like this:
  • Do you have a bootable backup?
    • If so, please boot from the backup disk.
  • If you do not have a working bootable backup:
    • Reinstall macOS from scratch on a new SSD.
    • You can use a cheap SATA SSD mounted inside a USB 3 enclosure.
    • Then boot the new installation of macOS.
Stage 2: Run Terminal and "cd" to the correct "usr/bin" folder like this:
  • After booting from a working copy of macOS, we are ready to try and remove ACL entries from your /usr/bin folder.
  • Open Terminal.
  • cd to the original (bad) macOS drive.
    • Example:
      • If the original macOS drive is called MacHD then type this:
      • cd /Volumes/macHD/usr/bin
Stage 3: Remove ACL entries:
  • Now that you are in the correct "usr/bin" directory, type this:
    • sudo chmod -N sudo
  • If there are no errors, type this:
    • sudo chmod -N *
Stage 4: Verify result:
  • Now let's make sure ACL entries are gone. Type:
    • ls -l
  • There should not be a "+" sign after the set of file permissions on the left.
  • Here's an example:
    Code:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 70288 Sep 29 13:28 AssetCacheLocatorUtil
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 67360 Sep 29 13:28 AssetCacheManagerUtil
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 57792 Sep 29 13:28 AssetCacheTetheratorUtil
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 31488 Sep 29 13:28 BuildStrings
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 31456 Sep 29 13:28 CpMac
  • Note that there is no "+" after "-rwxr-xr-x".

Thanks Casey, I'll try that as soon as I can, but it's a little complicated right now. I'll keep you informed

I've reported this issue in the forum before. But it has not been fixed yet. My mac freezes randomly.

After a while, the screen returns to the login screen and all applications are terminated. Or freeze all the time until I kill ...

Only the mouse pointer works. I can only turn off the system from the power button.

This behavior happens a lot when I use FCPX. However, it freezes sooner or later when using mac.
This problem persists when I enable IGPU in BIOS or set Vega 64 as primary in BIOS.
Is it related to PlatformID?

I will upload config.plist.
Please help someone. I thank you for reading this.

Thank you for offering to help with this... Please note that I probably misplaced or placed random kexts while trying everything I could from the guide to get back to stability. Here is the latest version of my configs.

Thanks!

Let's start with this:
  • Delete the files in the red boxes.
    • When using VirtualSMC, we must delete SMCHelper
    • The other 2 red boxes are duplicate files
  • Screen Shot 2019-10-21 at 4.18.18 AM.png
  • Try the attached config.plist, but copy serial numbers back into SMBIOS and RtVariables. This version adds External Icons Patch in Kernel & Kext Patches.

Since installing the Catalina update my system appears to be booting quicker, but I'm still having a weird problem with Bluetooth. On starting the computer, Bluetooth will either play up and drop connections or refuse to connect at all. If I delete the Bluetooth preference file and reboot, everything will be fine and will continue that way until I switch off. Next time I boot up I'll have the same problem again.
I have a card similar to the Fenvi with a Broadcom 94360 module, which worked 100% under Mojave
Any ideas anyone?
Following up on this, my system is now behaving itself and I haven't had any bluetooth issues for a couple of days now.
The only thing I changed was the name of my system disc which I'd changed from Mojave to Catalina - I've now switched it back.
I have also noticed what looks like a mistake in the bluetooth preferences file - at the bottom I see the following lines :-
<key>PrefKeyLoggingEnabled</key>
<false/>
<key>UplaodStatus</key>
<integer>2</integer>
<key>UploadStatus
</key>
<integer>2</integer>
</dict>
</plist>

Look at the third line, UplaodStatus? - looks a bit suspect to me

Is this line in everyone else's preference file, or is there something in my system causing this?

Thanks

@CaseySJ: i have the case like you Phanteks Evol X, do you manage to make second front USB 3.0 works? The one in the middle. Mine still doesn't work since day 1.
Yes, all three front-panel USB ports have been working since Day 1.
  • If you have Windows or Linux on this machine, does the port work on that OS?
  • Are you using the standard USB SSDT from the build guide (SSDT-UIAC-DESIGNARE-Z390-V7.aml)?
  • Are you using SMBIOS iMac19,1 or iMacPro1,1 or Macmini8,1?
    • Do not use iMac19,2 because USBInjectAll.kext will not work. (There are patched versions of this, however.)
  • Is the port physically damaged? If you use a flashlight to look into the good USB 3 port and compare with the bad USB 3 port, do you see any physical differences?

O you haven't updated your Mojave install?

I know that the iMac Pros use a different platform, but I've seen a few posts in this thread mention switching to iMac Pro1:1 for better performance with audio/video. I think one of the revisions of the original guide even mentions this, though I could be wrong. This is why I'm hoping to get some input from those that work with audio and not just video, about their experiences with either of these SMBIOS and performance. Furthermore, does leaving the IGPU enabled if using iMac19:1 perform better? Or would it be better to turn it off (will Logic crash just like FCPX)? Just a few questions based on what I've been reading across this thread, since I know that status of things can change with new OS updates, kext updates, different config settings etc.
Using iMac19,1 may be the best choice for Catalina and beyond. Because you have not yet installed macOS, you are in a good position to compare both iMac19,1 and iMacPro1,1.
  1. Start with iMac19,1 and install just your one or two key music production apps.
  2. Test performance and check how many simultaneous tracks/instruments the apps can support.
  3. Make a backup copy of the config.plist before taking the next step.
  4. Now switch to iMacPro1,1 -- this will create new serial numbers, which is okay because you're in the very early stages and you can re-license your apps if you switch back to iMac19,1.
  5. Repeat step 2.
  6. Now determine whether one SMBIOS is substantially better than the other.
    • If there is no substantial difference, switch back to iMac19,1 by restoring the config.pilst from Step 3.
    • Otherwise stay on iMacPro1,1

The funny thing was I really wanted to update to the latest Mojave, but the "Software Update" gave me the only option is to upgrade to Catalina which is the last thing I wanna do.
...
Click below and download the Combo update for macOS 10.14.6. Make a full backup of 10.14.4 before attempting to update!
