Important PSA: Update your m1n1 before updating to macOS Sonoma 14.5

macOS Sonoma 14.5 System Firmware introduced a change in the memory layout that triggered a bug in our code. This breaks display output on M2 series desktop Macs (Mini/Studio).

We have released a new m1n1 version (v1.4.13) with a fix. To update, run the Asahi Linux installer from macOS again (curl | sh) and choose the Upgrade m1n1 on an existing OS (m) option when prompted, then follow the instructions. This will resolve the issue regardless of whether you have already updated to macOS 14.5 or not.

In the next day or two we will release a m1n1 stage 2 (Fedora) package upgrade which will work around the issue for existing users who update Linux first. Nonetheless, an update of stage 1 via the Asahi Installer is still recommended for all users.


This has now been fixed.

Do not install this update on M1 / M1 Max / M1 Ultra desktop devices. It is unfortunately broken and will break the display. A fix is already queued and should be deployed over the next hours.
