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.

@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!
