Developer Beta Sonoma prohibits thunderbolt charging, need some help!
I used the developer beta macOS 14 Sonoma since it came out. At some point the version blocked the charging. When the cable was plugged in, the MBP froze and went into kernel panic.
Apple got the feedback and the reports. While the battery was charged I tried the usual resets and keyboard combos. From Apple they confirm that with the next version of Sonoma I can charge the MBP as usual
Unfortunately, the laptop was already with not battery %. The hardware and the battery have a good status. When the laptop was running in battery, there was no kernel panic. It was happening immediately when I was plugging in the cable to recharge
I went to Apple and asked if they could collaborate and give a quick recharge to the battery not through the thunderbolts and they wanted to replace the logic board, battery and recover the system to the current latest Ventura. I refused because the price was 3 times more on the trade in value of the MBP. Now I want to open and fix it.
Update: I have studied all the articles here in iFixit and I have done an extensive research online, read articles, watched repair videos etc.
The question is: Once I open and disengage the battery, how to I recharge it without removing it? Furthermore, is there a way to power the device from the thunderbolts or from the battery connection spot, after disengaging the battery?
I just to power it enough to get and install the update, then it will charge normally.
I'm in Berlin, Germany. I am not willing to spend much therefore I will get the iFixit tools and if there is a battery charger for such cases.
There should be a method to charge the MBP battery without removing it but just using its connections. Thank you
Is this a good question?
