      Following the release of GM version a few days ago, Catalina 10.15 was released Monday October 7th, 2019.
      https://www.apple.com/macos/catalina/
       
      Build is 19A583. It is available off the AppStore for download. Those who run on beta versions through the beta enrolment program should probably 1st revert to default mode before attempting to download as the new macOS version may not be otherwise be offered.
       

       

       

       
      Our 1st few guides have just stared to roll in so we invite everyone to bring in their new contributions.

      Released May 26th, 2020.
      Build 19F96.
       
      Seems safe to install on our Hacks. Ended up with a macOS could not be installed on your computer error message on the Latitude E6230 and 7490 laptops due to bless tool being unable to set the boot disk. But these are like false alarms because the Catalina partitions of those Hacks remained bootable and were properly updated to 10.15.5. The macOS Install Data folders in /System/Volumes/Data, however, had to be manually removed to get rid of the temp partition so, clearly indicative of a minor problem in fully completing the update at the end of the process.
       
      As for 10.15.4, refresh Lilu + WEG kexts and Clover to latest available versions (v1.4.4, v1.3.9 and r5118 at time of writing) before initiating the macOS update. If you cache your kexts from /L/E (or /S/L/E), remember to also update the kexts in the E/C/k/O folder of your EFI partition as the temporary update partition boots only with kexts injection.
       
      Security Update 2020-003 for High Sierra 10.13.6 and Mojave 10.14.6 released too (build 17G13033 and 18G5053).

      Released March 24th, 2020.
       
      Watch out folks as this update can be problematic on Skylake and later platforms. Update Lilu + WEG kexts to latest available versions and Clover to r5107 before initiating the update. If you cache your kexts from /L/E (or /S/L/E), remember to also update the kexts in the E/C/k/O of your EFI partition as the temporary update partition boots only with kexts injection. Faking a different CPUID should no longer be required but boot parameters -lilubetaall and/or -disablegfxfirmware may be so until the update has fully completed.
       
      I've also noticed that 10.15.4 no longer supports XCPM on my Ivy Bridge laptop (Latitude E6230) so it's back to generated CPU power management SSDT + AICPUPM patch.
       

       

       

       
       
      At the same time Safari 13.1 + Security Update 2020-002 were released for Mojave 10.14.6 and HIgh Sierra 10.13.6.
       
       Warning to all those who run Catalina on officially unsupported graphics platforms (eg: 1st gen Intel HD, Intel HD3000, nVidia Tesla), the patches/tricks previously used to gain OpenGL-only graphics acceleration no longer work in 10.15.4. As such, stick to 10.15.3 for the time being!

      Unsurprisingly, Apple issue a 10.15.4 Supplemental update today. This brings 10.15.4 to Build 19E287. Looks safe to install on all systems running Clover r5107. Had trouble on Latitude E6230 running with Clover r5108 (and reverted to r5107).

    • I have done all of that in fact except for EC, but that wasn't a problem for me yet. I tried to install the update and got a kernel cache problem, i tried to do ti manually from recovery terminal and got so many errors. I did update the kexts to their last version since i am installing the last version of catalina (seems logical)  here is the kext cache output : -bash-3.2# touch /Volumes/APFSMAC/System/Library/Extensions/ && kextcache -u /Volumes/APFSMAC kextcache -u /Volumes/APFSMAC Warning: /Volumes/APFSMAC/AppleInternal/Library/Extensions: No such file or directory

Error 107 rebuilding /Library/Apple/System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel I really don't know what to do exactly do i just delete the kexts with the errors and add deal with them later after the update, especially when one of them is VirtualSMC and that is mandatory to boot. or should i inject them from clover only for now ?  
    • Source: http://matthewlewis.ca/disable-or-uninstall-synology-6-1-universal-search/   Synology DSM 6.1 has removed File Station from the core and swaps out the Search functionality from File Station into its own individual package. I’ve noticed some users (myself included) have been posting on forums and stated they no use for this package and did not want it installed, and it cannot be disabled or uninstalled via the Package Center. So here are some simple SSH commands (assuming you already have SSH is enabled in Control Panel / Terminal & SNMP) you can execute on your DiskStation to either disable or remove the package permanently.   So login into your DiskStation with a ssh client such as PuTTy with your username and password followed by:   sudo -i   Enter in your account password, you should now be under the root account.   To disable:   synoservicecfg --disable pkgctl-SynoFinder   To remove completely:  synopkg uninstall SynoFinder   And to logout of root account:  logout   You will have to logout and log back into the DSM to notice the package has been completely removed! How to stop and uninstall Universal Search?   There's a lot of good, more advanced advice here, but the easiest way to do it for me was described on page 2 of this thread by quadcore:   Control Panel =>Task Scheduler => Create => Triggered task => Under "General Tab" give the task a name of your choosing, and set "Event" to 'boot-up'. Under the "Task Settings" tab, in the "user-defined script" box, add:   synoservice --disable pkgctl-SynoFinder synopkg uninstall SynoFinder  (this is optional AK)   Reboot, and observe in your Resource Monitor there isn't like 20 'synoelasticd' processes running. It works fine. I add the warning, you do this at your own risk.
    • Sir    The error page (the one with "go to https://") this is the full screenshot top to bottom of my laptop screen which i am able to capture,  but before this am not able go at top, and because it just so fast to take screenshot, but i tried and only am able to get this which i attached here.
    • The error page (the one with "go to https://") is the one we're interested in. But we need the entire page, not just the bottom part.   In other words, we need to complete (entire screen) version of this screen. The one you sent is cut off at the top.  
    • Sir   the first image which i send you is the last of the boot process and it stuck on (Please Go To https://panic.apple.com to report this) panic that's it. I wait here for 5 min but nothing happen & the last image which send you it just appear before the first image for few second.   and first image is screenshot of entire screen as you can see top to bottom.   Hope you understand sir.
    • I don't know how moving kexts from Clover/kexts/10.15 into Clover/kexts/Other (not all in /kexts) would cause that error...but ok. :)) Anyway, I've never seen that disk issue in my entire life. It doesn't recognise any drives. Not just NVME. There's no EFI partition, nothing. Can you post a screen of your Disk Utility window? I'm guessing you're trying to boot off of the USB now?
    • Please find the attached screenshots for diskutil output.  Also, I got a KP when I moved all the kext together under kexts folder (screenshot attached). So reverted the changes.
