    macOS Catalina 10.15 is out !

    Following the release of GM version a few days ago, Catalina 10.15 was released Monday October 7th, 2019.



    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.

    • try using Hackintool.app utility to repair the permission
    • @spidey123 It has.   Patching the original AppleHDA kext is a pretty bad way to get sound working. :)) But it is/was commonly used on other forums for a while. So, I get where you're coming from. But also, as you noticed, you don't need that anymore. With this method (Lilu + AppleALC + layout-id), AppleHDA stays the same and the updates don't break sound anymore.    Enjoy!
    • hi sorry for the late i do that on the article .  = this article =   and still getting  this ?? 
    • What Codec does it have? ALC255? Can't you use AppleALC.kext with the corresponding layout-id? Post the kext you're using for Audio and layout-id used  
    • Where are you updating from? In theory, if everything is correctly configured, and if you're not upgrading from Yosemite to Catalina or some really old version of MacOS, then yeah...it should work pretty smoothly.   What I would recommend is just making sure the following things are up to date: 1. Clover (here's the official place to download it from) 2. drivers and kexts (you can use Clover Configurator to update those)   Also, before anything, copy your existing EFI folder to the EFI partition of a USB drive for safe keeping. This way, if anything happens with the Clover update, you still have a backup.   When you're done updating Clover and kexts, before starting the upgrade to Catalina, try to see if you can still boot your current installation with updated files.   If everything ok, download the update directly from your current version of MacOS, or make a bootable USB drive with Catalina on it and try to install it. In case the updated EFI folder is still ok, you can add that to your USB, as well.  
    • For Yosemite, I think you also need boot-args: "kext-dev-mode=1".
    • Hi guys, I just took the latest update for Catalina and lost my sound, which is normal until I reinstall my AppleHDA.kext, but even after re-installing my custom AppleHDA.kext (I have done this for the past two years) and installing the newest Lilu and Whatevergreen Kexts.  I still cannot get sound.  First time this has ever happened.  Sound was perfect on Catalina 10.15.4     Did the update change the way sound kext work?   Update.  I reinstalled Vanilla AppleHDA 10.15.5 and added latest AppleALC to /EFi/Clover/Kexts/  and all is well again.   I guess I missed that you didnt need a custom AppleHDA kext anymore.  Probably been that way for a long time.
