    macOS Big Sur 11.1 update is out

    Released December 14th, 2020.
    Build 20C69.
    This update brings back support for late-2013/mid-2014 Haswell MacBookPro11,1 models which had been dropped in Big Sur 11.0.1 (build 20B50) due to a bug. Apple have obviously fixed the issue. I was able to successfully use the SMBIOS of this model on my Haswell/HD4400 Toshiba laptop as shown below.



    Also released at the same time:
    Security Update 2020-001 for Catalina 10.15.7 (build 19H114) Security Update 2020-007 for Mojave 10.14.6 (build 18G7016)

    OSXL 10th Anniversary!

    🎆 🎂 🍾 🎇
    Dec. 2010-Dec. 2020
    It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years already!
    What a road since the early days of Snow Leopard on the Latitude D430!
    To celebrate this, we've undertaken a small forum clean-up, implemented some optimisation on the hosting server side, upgraded the community board and splashed out on a new forum Theme.
    We hope you'll all enjoy it and thank you for your loyalty to OSXLatitude.

    Big Sur 11.0.1 regression

    Nov 19th, 2020: Apple released a statement related to severe issues affecting Late 2013/Mid 2014 13" MacBookPro. These are the Haswell MacBookPro11,1 models.
    In order to prevent further widespread of the issues and pending an eventual fix, Apple released a new Big Sur 11.0.1 version (build 20B50) that basically excludes MBP11,1 platform from the list of supported Mac models.
    15" models of the same generation, i.e. MacBookPro11,2 and MacBookPro11,3 are not affected by this and remain on the list of supported platforms.
    The direct consequence of this on Hackintosh is this:
    Hackintosh computers running with MacBookPro11,1 SMBIOS can no longer obtain Big Sur as a software update or download Big Sur from the AppStore. Hackintosh computers running with MacBookPro11,1 SMBIOS must use the -no_compat_check boot argument to install Big Sur. A workaround to this is, of course, to run Big Sur with a different SMBIOS such a MacBookPro11,2 or MacBookPro11,3.  
    EDIT: regression/bug fixed in Big Sur 11.1 (build 20C69).
