Now that downloads for 5.8.1 are available, I'm back in business.

Sorry, 5.8.1 is not yet posted on the direct download link, but you can reach 5.8.1 using "Check for Updates" inside SoftRAID.

Catalina 10.15.1 fixes the SIP (System Integrity Protection) bug.

5.8.1 removes the warning about SIP.

However, Secure Boot must still be disabled (Internet boot and disable Startup System Security by setting to none.)

Hi just to clarify? Do you mean that I still need to set as “csrutil disable” on my Mac after I have successfully install 5.8.1?

Hi,

I'm working on an iMac (27-inch, Late 2013), so no T2 chip. However, i do get the error that I can't install the driver.
When rebooting in recovery mode the only option Startup Security Utility gives me is to turn on or turn off a Firmware Password. I cannot find the menu to turn off secure boot, my guess because I have no T2 chip. Either way, a have no solution to download/update the driver. I have Softraid XT 5.8 installed.

What am I missing here?

SIP no longer needs to be disabled at all.

So yes you can use CSRutil enable and activate it again.

Joricaeser;
What is the exact message you are getting? "Can't install the driver" is not the same as needing to update the driver each startup, so perhaps you have a different issue.

So now that 5.8.1 is available, what is the best order of operations to follow if we’re still on Mojave and 5.8?

1. Update to Catalina
2. Disable secure boot
3. Install 5.8.1
4. Re-enable secure boot?

Or does 5.8.1 still only function if secure boot is disabled, but now works if SIP is enabled?

If you update to 10.15.1 (any new Catalina installation automatically installs the update), then you do not need to touch the SIP settings.
If you have a T2 computer, you do need to set Secure Boot to "no Security", then run SoftRAID 5.8.1 to update the driver.

This should be reliable

I have a T2 Mac. I have turned off the Security Boot, but still can't update SoftRaid. Any suggestions?

Are you running 5.8.1?

What is the error you are getting (or specific issue)

Thanks very much, did the updates to 5.8.1 on Mojave, then updated to Catalina with secure boot disabled and just had to reinstall the driver once on Catalina.

Looks like all is working now.
