First updated the latest Kext files, unhide the Preboot & Recovery drives with Clover Configurator and updated to the 10.15.5 SU successfully (coming from 10.15.5).

The 10.14.6 (mojave) system I am running has removed the kext you listed. And run Kext Utility to rebuild the kernel cache.

But in the beginning, because it could not start, I restored these kexts from the backup and then deleted them. . . After a few loops, I am not sure to run Kext Utility every time. Later I found a terminal command in your original post

cd /

kextcache -i/volume/Mac S970

This problem can be solved, but I don't know how to enter it or the exact format. Can you teach me?
Sure, please do this:
  • Boot the macOS Recovery volume
  • From the Tools menu, select Terminal and type:
Bash:
cd /
kextcache -i /Volumes/"Mac S970"
  • Then select Reboot from the Apple menu (top left of screen)
  • When system reboots, try to boot Mojave again; does it work?
I'm sure I booted from a USB flash drive. You can also enter macOS recovery

Similarly, using SSDT-USBW.aml will not start the system. The other files in Catalina 10.15.4 Fresh Install.zip run very stably
Feel free to remove both of these files:
  • CLOVER/ACPI/patched/SSDT-USBW.aml
  • CLOVER/kexts/Other/USBWakeFixup.kext

I have Magic Mouse 1 and 2. Both have the same problem, they will not connect. I have suspected that the wifi BT card has been causing the sleep problems (without any legitimate reason to do so) and have tried three of the WiFi BT cards from Amazon that claim to work with Hackintosh but I have the same results with all of them.
My Magic Mouse 1 and Apple Trackpad 1 have always worked. Just wondering why this is not consistent across all users.

Hello, @CaseySJ
Is there no progress on using SSDT to activate the Thunderbolt bus? The firmware that I modified was invalid, and I could only flash it back to the original version.
Hello @Mace,

Unfortunately some motherboards respond to the SSDT very well and others simply do not. The Gigabyte X99 Designare-EX seems to be one of the problematic boards. The Intel NUC 7 also did not respond well to the SSDT.

Have you considered purchasing any of the following:
  • Gigabyte GC-Alpine Ridge
  • Gigabyte GC-Titan Ridge
  • Asus ThunderboltEX 3

Hi @CaseySJ,
I use your guide with my new Configuration (Z390+Core i9). Everything is great and working. Thunderbolt Hotplug is very good. Thank you for all your work.
I have issue with your Vega64 enhance process si I use @mattystonnie AMD Radeon Performance Enhanced SSDT guide with VGTab to solve Noisy Vega Fan. I don't find anywhere a guide with advice value for VGTab and I want to check if my values are good (I find them on a german forum). Is anybody can advice me?

With this method only DP port are working (not the HDMI).
Hello @rogers76, have you seen @jaymonkey's VGTab guide here:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...vega-power-and-fan-control-properties.267519/
I have a question about audio with your guide. I think my audio map is not good, I use the green audio output to connect my speaker but in Mac OS sound prefpan I must check headphone output to have sound on green audio output. And the front panel headphone output don'work (I test all audio setting in mac os audio prefpan) ! Have you an idea to solve it ?
...
Are you using Layout ID 11? If you're not sure, please post your config.plist but remove serial numbers from SMBIOS before posting.

The CNVW module should ideally be disabled by placing SSDT-Z390-DESIGNARE-NO-CNVW.aml into CLOVER/ACPI/patched.

Is it possible to replace the onboard Intel Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax on Z490 with a macOS compatible m.2 like the BCM94350ZAE?

Hi!

I upgraded clover to 5118 today, alongside with LiLu (1.4.5) , WEG (1.4) and Apple ALC (1.5) as a preperation for installing Mojave Security Update 2020-003.

Everything worked, but after the restart my bluetooth is gone :(
Using the BCM94360CS2 adapter,

It works in clover boot selection and windows, however in macos it says "no information found" in system report/bluetooth.
Before the updating everything worked silky smooth including AirDrop etc.

Can somebody point me into the right direction how to maybe get it working again?

I already tried resetting the (emulated) nvram.

Edit: Could updateing have interfered with the USB-Mapping somehow?

thank you very much for any help!

Unfortunately not because that's an Intel CNVi slot rather than a general purpose M.2 slot. So it will only accommodate CNVi devices.

Please do two things:
  1. Run IORegistryExplorer and scroll the device tree on left side until you see XHC. Don't use the 'search' field. Then you'll see HS11 and HS12. Capture and post a screenshot (CMD-SHIFT-4).
  2. Go to System Information --> Bluetooth and post screenshot. But blank-out any private information from the screenshot.
