macOS 13.2 Ventura Update under OpenCore Legacy Patcher

The update installs without problems.

If you have a Mac for the first time and are running an operating system that is no longer officially supported, you may feel a little jittery before an update.

macOS 13.1 update with OpenCore


With the current macOS 13.1 update on an old Mac, everything worked wonderfully for us. The 13.1 update was displayed normally in the system settings and installed as usual.

After the last reboot, however, the font size was very small, or the resolution was not adapted to the retina display on the 2015 MacBook – similar to a new installation. But don’t worry: The OpenCore Legacy Patcher recognizes this fact and reinstalls the appropriate files.

You can ignore any notices from macOS, as the small tool will point this out again. Another reboot is enough. And everything is as usual and runs flawlessly.

macOS 13.2 update with OpenCore Patcher

Meanwhile, there is the 13.2 update of macOS Ventura. This also installed with us just like that. After a reboot, however, the display resolution was again too small because the graphics patch was not installed. This time, we had to manually run the OpenCore Legacy Patcher and simply post-install the patch using the “Post Install Root Patch” option.

There are also ongoing updates to the patcher. We had updated it and then post installed the graphics patch. When restarting, the patcher noticed that it was a new one, but the patch on the SSD was still created with the older version and automatically asked if it should be update here as well. After that, it rebooted once and was done.

The OpenCore Legacy Patcher team does a great job for users of older Macs.

    1. I checked again. Maybe you did upgrade from Monterey to Ventura? That is not a good idea as the graphics acceleration is only available in Monterey right now. Please stick to that version for Macs up to 2012.

  1. On my MacBook Pro from 2015 everything on the Desktop is still very small after installing macOS 13.1. How can I fix that?

    1. You have to run the OpenCore Legacy Pater again with the graphics patch. That should be no big thing.

  2. Found the solution:

    I had to run „Post install Root Patches“.

    After that and a reboot everything is fine.

  3. This Post Install Legacy Patcher works on a MacBook Pro 2015 for the graphics issue. Many thanks following update to 13.1 from an OpenCore install of 13.0.1

  4. For me the resolution is still small. MacBook Pro 2015. Open core keeps failing to update graphics kernels.

  5. What exactly does failure (-10) mean when trying to perform post installation root patching mean. Still stuck on very small resolution.

  6. Problem resolved, reinstalled open core after rebooting with usb flash plugged in. Working great now.
