  • Updated WhateverGreen to 1.3.3

In addition to the notes in v2.1 beta:

  • Fix SPDIF and front headphone jack (#4 #6)
  • Fix installer issues with 10.15 (#45 #61)
  • Fix ethernet driver issues in installer (#54 #67)
  • Better power management for USB
  • Re-worked Thunderbot fixes: TB firmware will be visible in System Preferences, proper NHI driver matching works, this should improve compatibility with Apple Thunderbolt devices (such as 5K display and EGPU eject), but we need testers!
  • Fixed an issue where if nothing is plugged into Thunderbolt port, then system might panic on wakeup

Please note there is a known bug where if you boot/wake with only a TB device and no USB device as well then the computer freezes on wakeup. This is being worked on.

This release migrates to OpenCore and VirtualSMC as a replacement for Clover and FakeSMC. The main reason is stability and the fact that acidanthera will eventually stop supporting Clover. Additionally, the use of OpenCore will result in faster boots, better compatibility with Windows, better security, and a more stable boot due to the removal of many unneeded legacy patches from Clover+plugins.

Additionally, Lilu, WhateverGreen, and AppleALC has been updated to the latest release.

This release also includes a working version of Clover + drivers. The reason for this is due to recent changes with Clover, things get broken and names get changed so it's easier to maintain if everyone uses the same version.

  • Use WhateverGreen to enable QuickSync and resolve boot-up panic on verbose boot (#18)
  • Disable USB companion controller to fix IORegisteryViewer freeze bug and sometimes wakeup freeze bugs (#13)
  • Fix issue where incorrect number of compute units for Vega M GH (#30), untested on Vega M GL, please test and give feedback
  • Show proper model string
  • Fix Metal issues on 10.15 (#24)
  • Fix SATA boot issues (#33)

Make sure you read the guide. You can get support in github issues or in this thread. Do not use tonymac because their site does not permit talking about non-tonymac approved installation methods and they WILL ban you for even mentioning this hack. You’re advised to join a less draconian community like insanelymac especially if you want help.
