Did anybody successfully upgrade to Catalina using dosdude1's patcher and a defect Macbook with AMD GPU?

I have a Late 2011 MBP and think about updating to Catalina. But I fear, that after updating I won't be able to boot again. So it would be great to read some reports.
Did you get a solution for upgrading to Catalina. I have attempted it but cannot reload AMDRadeonX3000.kext which solves the thermal issue on High Sierra.

I get a link error when trying to load the AMDRadeonX3000.kext

My mac remain in El Capitan

Today, suddenly, after 2 years regular use, nothing new installed, no software update, got freeze and KP

Did again the linux procedure (successfully) and again, KP after reboot

Sometimes i can reach desktop and freeze, sometimes no.

Tried to reinstall el capitan via usb, but got freeze in the installer also

Any clue? Hint?

EDIT: nevermind, was a corrupted ram...
