Kernel attacks? As in hackers? How did you downgrade?So I am going to reverse the course here...
After more than a week using Big Sur, I have downgraded to Catalina.
Big Sur was causing a lot of issues -- mainly constant kernel attacks that shut down my computer and when I thought I finally had that under control, Safari kept crashing with every reboot.
Now mind you, I was on the final Gold Master version and then the latest Developer Preview that was above that.
Most of the time my laptop ran fine. However, those kernel attacks combined with Safari crashes were just a bit too much to put up with.
I am going to stay on Catalina for the foreseeable future.
No, hackers have nothing to do with kernel panics. It is a shutdown when the system detects an internal error it cannot safely recover.Kernel attacks? As in hackers? How did you downgrade?
The word attacks is what made me think of hackers. I would have thought you could have restored with Time Machine in one step.No, hackers have nothing to do with kernel panics. It is a shutdown when the system detects an internal error it cannot safely recover.
The downgrade is a bit involved. You need to create a bootable flash drive as well as disabling startup security protocols that Bug Sur puts in place.
Once I was able to get Catalina installed I used SuperDuper to transfer over the backup I had made before the upgrade.
You may be disappointed then. The App Library is a mess and you’re probably better off creating folders and organizing apps manually.My iPhone 11 is telling me that its going to install iOS 14.1 tonight...
I'm at 13.7 now.
I'm looking forward to having a new way to organize my apps. I have never found it an easy process to move them around or create folders for them.
