Patch Big Sur installers to run them on some unsupported Macs.

Overview

Patched Sur is a UI patcher for macOS Big Sur, designed to make it easy to run macOS 11 on unsupported Macs. This patcher hopes to allow any user of any knowledge to patch their Mac, while still giving you freedom on how you want to use your Mac. You can view the list of supported Macs

What's new in Patched Sur

Version 0.0.4:

Version 0.0.4 is a pretty big release with fixes that should close a couple of issues. This also works on making it easier for me to diagnose problems, especially with the number of people submitting a screenshot instead of the actual text

  • Click to Copy now appears under error boxes so that people learn to stop giving me screenshots, and give me the actual error
  • Fixed disk1x clipping, in cases where the selected USB is mounted at something greater than disk9 (so disk10, disk11, etc up to disk99 this will work)
  • Patched Sur now uses a dynamic micropatcher version, so I can tell it to use v0.5.2 instead of v0.5.1 when it comes out without having to publish a new release of Patched Sur
  • The Settings screen in the Post Install app now looks a little bit different so I can add more things in the future
  • The password is invalid bug should now be fixed. I took out the quotes enclosing it (there will still be some problems, but this removes a couple)
  • The How It Works text now has some (unfinished) contents including some much needed credits
  • The EFI Boot and Install macOS Big Sur boot options should now have some Patched Sur styled icons (not all boot screens will show them, but it helps for those that do)
  • Your build number has now been added to the custom About This Mac screen in the post-install app
  • The "Beta" word has been taken out of the custom About This Mac screen if you don't have a beta macOS
  • You can now skip the Installer USB is plugged in check for patch kexts (you'll have to rename the installer USB and app to have Beta in the name)

A lot of fixes, but a lot more is to come! I have big plans for the next release v0.1.0!

I used this yesterday on my unsupported 15" MacBookPro 10.1 (mid 2012) with Quad-Core Intel i7 2.3 GHz and MacOS Big Sur 11.1-beta (developer version) with total success! I had been sad about that it wasn't supported any more and I was gradually migrating to a new 6 core i5 MacMini 2018 with MacOS Big Sur and external graphics. I downloaded the installation instructions on the developer site and followed step by step (14 steps!) - somewhat hard to understand as there are multiple restarts with the option-key down and inbetween relaunching the patching software, but it worked very smooth and exacly as described with no glitches ending up in a well working MacOS Big Sur installation. I used an external 128 GB Usb SSD to build the patched MacOS Big Sur installer on instead of a slow Usb-stick. This will also serve as your future MacOS Big Sur updater with help of a "Patched-Sur.app" that this software places on the drive. This is a multi purpose tool! VERY Convenient !!!

No problem installing 11.01 on my MacBookPro 9,2. I'll be installing 11.1 shortly. I am hoping for an installer that works on my 2012 Mac Pro. Any info on that?
