HackinDROM EFI 1.0.4
Looks good! Very intuitive. Love that it doesn't close the window down like EFI Agent does, and I immediately figured out that double clicking on the name will open it in Finder. I get the 'spinning ball of death' for a few seconds when first clicking on the icon. Besides that, making it more compact would make it faster to use, and also reducing the animation time. Great work! What got you into developing this?

So that list was from back in the CLOVER days and before the Thunderbolt controller flashing was a recommended config.
Yes that is correct and I am currently using those files and have been since moving over to OC. No issues with them at all. Although I have not flashed Thunderbolt so am uncertain if you need anything different for that

Could you please upload Bios F9i to the forum for those who flashed F9j and want to go to back to F9i?
F9g is still available but its a Beta version, would be nice to have an official release here!

Just found on my iCloud.
Z390 Designare Bios F9i
Are there any benefits to using F9i over F9g? In principle I would guess there must be improvements, but it sure is nice not having to worry about CFG-Lock on F9g. Likewise, should F9j be used if we don't need USB 3.X on thunderbolt?

One again my Extreme machine is horked from trying to update to 11.2 My other machine worked perfectly...
I have a backup running 11.1 on an external USB-c / thunderbolt enclosure. It exhibits the same problem with updating apps from the store or even seeing the updated macOS 11.2 but at least it boots and runs the os.

I am running on OC 0.6.5 or 0.6.6 though the OC version has never made any difference. The original M2 internal drive is stuck after running the 11.2 installer from the store which i downloaded approx 12.5 Gig i did this since running the check for updates kept saying 11.1 was up to date. After the 2nd reboot you reach a point where selecting the installer from the picker runs the bar about a 1/4 way then just reboots. If you select the macos drive it now runs the line about 1/3 and just freezes there. I am losing my mind with this machine. I had previously erased/repartioned the internal M2 and restored it from the backup but it also would not load updates for apps or recognize the subsequent macOS updates as they roll out. I can grab another M2 drive at best buy locally. They have the 970Evo Plus and a WD Black SN-750 1TB drives. Should I avoid the Evo Plus, my current one is the 970 Pro 1TB

On my main machine I'm using 970 EVO Plus with the latest firmware flashed (check Post #1 about this firmware history).
Look the difference of Temperature °C in the same system:

Never had a problem with the NVMe. But, personally, on my next buy Ill look for something else than 970 EVO Plus.

Try checking your config.plist file. If crs-active-config is anything other than 00000000, try changing it to that (temporarily if you need it to be something else). Reboot and clear NVRAM.

Will it do the update now?
