READ BEFORE REGISTERING SO YOUR ACCOUNT WORKS

In order for your account to be activated INSTANTLY, your PayPal email MUST MATCH THE EMAIL YOU USE TO REGISTER YOUR ACCOUNT ON THIS FORUM!! If your PAYPAL email address differs from your FORUM email address, your account will have to be activated MANUALLY when a customer service agent gets around to it.

I realize this sucks, and I do apologize.

    Just an update for people reading this topic with similar issues

    Got an email from the customer that the MacBook Air suddenly decided to boot up fully (he sent me a photo of the login screen)
    This absolutely baffles me. have no clue what the issue was and will probably never know now.

      Thanks to Discord chat, piernov and ChrisB, we found a solution for this problem.
      Q1920 is a Strap to temporarily disable ME region. I had 2 boards, 820-3437 and 820-00165, both with the same "boots till 100% than freezes" and "iGPU kext timeout" in Verbose mode.
      3437 had some water damage on R9120 and R9121, 00165 was completely clean but after i repaired the first one i've found that there was a low resistance between GND and SPI_DESCRIPTOR_OVERRIDE_L lines.
