OK here we go again!

Happy 2019 and 10.14.3 was just released. Lets see how we do.

Our previous two releases gave us a roughly consistent 75/25 split between No and did before+No and never did / Yes and never did + yes and did before.

So lets see what happens this time.

I may have been lucky but have had no kernel panics or major errors with my 2018 since I got it in August.

My wife has a 2.9 w the works which has also never had as much of a hiccup and its in constant use. And judging by the poll numbers you're in the majority.

Hopefully don’t jinx myself, but I got my 13” i7/16/1 on January 6 and have yet to have a kernel panic. Knocking on wood!

I just looked and I don't have 10.14.3 served to me (as of yet).

I'll reboot and check again, but to answer your question, I had better not have any Kernel attacks start happening. I have yet to have a single one since I got this laptop.

I wish I could go back and see all of the error reports from the last few months and read that macOS crash string or whatever it was called in the other thread. I’m very curious what it is causing all of the crashes. At least then I would have a clue as to what started it all. My machine was golden for the first 3 months of ownership.

Doesn't it skew voting to allow people to vote so soon after release? If someone votes "no..." but they only installed 10.14.3 two hours ago, is that representative?

Not trying to nitpick, just saying. :)

Great point and that's why I wrote that people can and are encouraged to change their responses as their situations develop. If you look at past threads people are in fact reporting having spoken too soon etc. I think there's just as good a chance somebody will attribute a crash to this issue or think they've had a KP when its something else.

The bridge os crash reports are all but useless. they don't seem to really point to what the cause is other than bridge os related. As far as the new os, it's a little too early to tell. Give it a week or two. My imac pro has been behaving pretty well since the last few beta releases and not this one. But, I do have everything possible that is T2 related turned off and that isn't going to change one bit since I don't really want any of those features. What has been fixed in this last update is the slow boot if you had been booting off external drives for any reason.

“Not this one” meaning that it’s already acting badly?

Dropped off my 15” today at FedEx with printouts of the crash screens, and a very lengthy explanation of the problem and what causes it. I figure it’s 40/60 on them not reading it, but why not, right? It will be in the hands of Apple tomorrow. I’m very curious as to what they will do.

Good luck, and I would hope that they do read it.

I'd like to start by saying that I've had 2 BridgeOS crashes ever and I use my laptop almost everyday and 40+ hours each week. Overall it hasn't really been an issue for me but I remain very aware and plugged into the T2 issue as I am shocked that it's affecting so many users, and some particularly very negatively.

I had a BridgeOS crash today, running on the latest 10.14.3. Verified a log was created for the crash. Interestingly enough, in my case, both crashes have occurred when using Screens to control my Mac via my iPad over Wifi. I have Remote Management enabled under 'Sharing' in System Preferences, and I've read somewhere on this forum in the past that at least some of the T2 crashes were attributed to having this feature enabled. The issue is not reproducible, or at least I have not discovered the reproducible steps for this issue. I have used Screens many times on my iPad, and only twice have I had a T2 crash.

Thanks for the info. Interesting case. I wonder what could be going on there. Can you vote in the poll?

Wow very strong lead on No and never did. What are we to make of that? Many folks say that only those w problems watch these forums. This kinda flys in the face of that.

I make nothing of that, but I do think things have gotten better or maybe less noticeable. Now today a new beta. Almost afraid to try it after all of this. I would be interested in hearing from some people who have secure boot on and actually use many of the T2 functions such as file vault, sleep etc to see if they have any recent issues or is that better too.

Currently running 10.14.2 and not having any issues. I normally update as soon as the new version comes out but this time I haven't.
Should I put off the update??

Mine always has the KP after waking from sleep. Happened this morning on 10.14.3 for the first time, but approx 1-2 a week when running 10.14.2.
