Notes on Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4
 

(1) Everything works except for the following:-

  • NVIDIA® GeForce® 940MX 4GB GDDR5 (Disabled as cannot work on Mac OS)
  • USB 2.0 Realtek CRW SD Card Reader (Detected but not working)
  • Built-In Intel WLAN Card (Not supported by Mac OS and using USB WLAN for now)
  • This bootpack does not inject any graphics platform-id. Seems to resolve the screen flickering after wake from sleep issue. Using the usual graphics platform-id of 59160000 will cause major screen flickering issue after waking from sleep.
  • HDMI does not work without any graphics platform-id injected. However, with platform-id injected, I have yet to resolve my screen going blank or system hang issues when I connect external monitor to hdmi. Further, injecting the usual platform-id will cause flickering issue after sleep wake. So for now I rather live with no HDMI output so that it can sleep without any screen flickering after wake LOL.
