The latest build of OpenCore Legacy Patcher for macOS Sonoma has been updated with several new features and the most important update is that it doesn’t require to download the KDK (Kernel debug Kit) anymore.
No more KDK installation:
I’ve tested the lates build on macOS Sonoma Developer Preview 6 (Public Beta 4) and the root patches were installed instantly without the need to download the KDK.
This is important because after each developer preview or public beta release the OCLP had to download the KDK and installed to apply the root patches.
Connecting to Wi-Fi Networks:
Another update is about the Wi-Fi networks. Previously we were not able to connect to WiFi networks just by clicking the Network’s name, we had to open the System Settings -> Wi-Fi and then select the network we needed to connect to but now if you click on a network name on in the Wi-Fi menu bar icon the password window will pop up.
macOS Sonoma non-Metal GPU Support:
OpenCore Legacy Patcher has been updated to support Macs with non-Metal GPU which mostly applies to Macs that have been manufactured before 2012. This is an experimental update for now but as far as I can tell it worked on my 2011 21.5″ iMac with an AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU with 512 MB of VRAM.
