Use Debug Versions

Switch to the Debug Version of OpenCore

  • If you encounter problems during booting, you should utilize the debug version of OpenCore. As explained previously in the Misc section, make sure you have activated debugging and then Select Menu -> Edit -> OpenCore DEBUG

  • Next, select Menu -> Edit -> Upgrade OpenCore and Kexts or click the Upgrade OpenCore and Kexts button.

  • Then click: Get the latest version of OpenCore

  • Then press the Start Sync button.

Back to release version

Once everything works, switch back to the release version by taking essentially the same steps:

  • Select Menu -> Edit -> OpenCore DEBUG - This will uncheck OpenCore DEBUG in the Menu.

  • Select Menu -> Edit -> Upgrade OpenCore and Kexts or click the Upgrade OpenCore and Kexts button.

  • Press the Start Sync button.

  • Also revert relevant debug settings in Config.plist:

    • AppleDebug = NO

    • ApplePanic = NO

    • Target = 0

  • In order to remove any remaining effects of the debug session, also Reset NVRAM (then check the correct BIOS boot order and set your default boot volume in OpenCore)
