Use this to mount the EFI then remove the Clover, Clover install log and Boot folders.Hey guys I installed clover by mistake and I can reboot the computer and everything works normally, but I don't want to brick it.
How do I fix the EFI partition?
I would really appreciate your help guys!
Well I didn't but I had issues booting earlier and then had to do boot linux and remove AMD GPU NVRAM Variable.Did you use or install Clover to this MBP ?

AFAIK OpenCore doesn't create any problems with real Macs the way that Clover does. It's probably best that you try posting in another online forum that is MBP specific for these kinds of booting problems. None of the problems you have are Clover or OC related.Way earlier I did try to boot via an OpenCore USB stick.
Hi! Check CheckM8 EFI firmware removal tool - the CheckM8 tool provides a quick solution to remove Mac EFI security firmware (BIOS) password protection and disable secure boot for all Apple Mac computers with a T2 security chip. Also on this site, you can find the bypass activation Lock tool for Mac T2 device!If anyone is wondering, I followed the instructions from the site GhostlyHaks how to reflash the EFI chip.
GhostlyHaks also provides clean firmware files, but be careful as the one for this machine was not cleaned, so you have to replace the serial AND the Intel ME Region on your own. The latter is quite hard to get right. (And almost impossible to get right without the corrupted dump)
I also tried to do the same on another 2015 13" MacBook Pro, but it had a different chip on which the POMONA clip won't work, so the only alternative was the EasyFlash 4.0.3 adapter (also from GH) BUT it COULD destroy the 2015 13" MacBook Pro which is stated clearly on the site. As it was the only option apart from buying a new Logic Board, I bought one and tried it. It did however destroy the Logic Board (no charger light, completely dead) and now I have to buy a new one.
Don't blame GH for the dead Logic Board, I was fully aware of the risk.
Also why does writing a reply lock up the site every 30 seconds for about 10 seconds? Really annoying. (Android 7.1.1, OnePlus 3, Chrome 60.0)
