There is one thing that is inevitable for everyone and things: The passage of time. It makes people more mature (and older) and things more outdated. Those things end up disappearing and it also happens with Macs. Every so often some devices fall into oblivion starting by not accepting updates to new operating systems and then falling into oblivion little by little. However, there are those who resist it and on this occasion a group of developers has created OpenCore Legacy Patcher and with this we can run macOS Ventura on non-compatible Macs.
Certain Mac models, such as the first MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, will not officially support macOS Ventura. That means that little by little it will fall into the drawer of oblivion. Something that can be delayed a lot thanks to the creation by some developers of a tool called OpenCore Legacy Patcher which allows you to run macOS Ventura on computers that are not compatible with this OS.
The tool is based on same OpenCore bootloader used for Hackintosh, which is a well-known method of running macOS on regular PCs. It even lets you run macOS Big Sur and Monterey on older computers that aren't compatible with them.
The developers behind this tool have admitted that macOS Ventura will not be easy, but that the team have already made progress in some crucial areas, which should allow owners of some older Macs to keep them up to date for a little longer.
The team was able to run macOS Ventura without support for AVX2 instructions thanks to the old system files which are still part of the Rosetta 2 technology, which emulates the functions of an old CPU to run Intel applications on Apple Silicon.
In this Twitter entry seen as developer Mykola Grymalyuk shows off a version of macOS Ventura running on a 2008 Mac Pro, 2012 Mac mini, 2014 Mac mini, and a 2014 iMac.
A whole esperanza for those of us who don't own the latest from Apple.
