After 15 hours of trying to get OpenCore to work, I switched to clover and got the whole hack running in just 2.

I spent days reading over the OpenCore guide and figuring out what I need. After building everything, I tried to boot. On first boot attempt, it gave me an error saying "Invalid OpenCore Configuration" After changing some minor values in the plist file, I tried again and from that attempt onwards, whenever I selected the flash drive as the boot device, it would just reset back to the motherboard BIOS. After doing the whole process from the top 3 times, I just gave up on OpenCore and went to clover instead. Its running super stable now without a single error.

What works:

  • iMessage
  • FaceTime
  • Wifi
  • SleepWake
  • All USB Ports \just not internal usb2.0 ones*

What doesn't work:

  • Bluetooth
  • AirDrop
  • Unlock with watch
  • \For bluetooth, I believe the problem is I couldn't get the internal USB2.0 header to work. That's why its not running. Because the card work on windows. I have ordered a internal to external converter so I'm planning on just plugging it into an external port on back of the motherboard. I'm currently using some random usb bluetooth adapter from my old PC and its working. Although not for unlock with watch& airdrop which I desperately need.*
  • Microphone In
  • \As for microphone, I'm not 100% sure what the issue is. I plugged it in the back port as well as the front port and selected that in system preferences but still couldn't get anything.*
