[ref]vrondena[/ref], don't use kexts in l/e or s/l/e, use into clover/kexts/other and reboot, don't need rebuild

System volume in Catalina is RO while running even with SIP disabled.


You can boot into a second mac OS install such as Mojave and write to the Catalina system and/or Data volumes.


Keep in mind that if you use Mojave that disk utility does not have exactly the same functionality as the Catalina version.


Better if you have a bootable backup of Catalina to do mods.


Use a bootable Catalina USB installer/disk utiility to clone your Catalina install to something inexpensive such as an SD card via a USB reader/writer. SIze matters. A 32 gig or larger SD card should have enough room for future updates and it is better if your backup is only one APFS container with only Catalina installed.


Booting from a Catalina SD backup is not as fast as hard drive but gets the job done.


Use USB 2 SD card reader/writer to avoid issues with unsupported hardware/specs.

Doing this causes my system to crash and reboot randomly. I stick with clover it works fine.
