There's no way to upgrade without use an enclosure for the 970 Evo Plus ? Even with the bootable USB ?
If it’s this one, then it’s only for SATA M.2 instead of PCIe M.2. The 970 EVO Plus is not compatible with it.

You may either use a PCIe M.2 enclosure such as this one or try to search the Samsung site for the ISO file. It should be in the instructions.
The firmware ISO is located here:

Just expand the section Samsung SSD Firmware(24).

Yes it works with iGPU enabled. We just add shikigva and shiki-id to Boot Arguments. Please search this thread for "shiki-id" by member "CaseySJ" to find the settings. Or click below.
welcome back @CaseySJ thanks for replying, yes I tried shikigva(shikigva 32 and 40)and shiki-id. ATV just play for 1 second and stop.Imovie works fine though

I have both computer and display set to never.

The first build I went thru, you mentioned most of these issues can be caused by USB port issues. So I made sure to include USB map files from “fresh install” folder as well as removed USBport.kext, and replaced it with USBinjectAll.kext but still occurring.
What is the make and model of your RX 5700 XT? @heyelly is experiencing the same issue. Wonder what components the two of you have in common...

No issues at all in safe boot. My GPU is a Sapphire Nitro+, everything freezes after 5-6 mins. I think this is 99% GPU depending as I replaced almost everything else in my computer.

Have you tried an AMD RX 570, 580, etc.? Or the iGPU?

I didn't try anything else. I can try with the iGPU (but I need to replace the config.plist?) or with a GTX 770 which is natively supported.

Please try the 770 first. Using iGPU requires switching platform ID to 0x3E9B0007 and enabling HDMI port. So the 770 is simpler.

No issues with the 770.
