HoRNDIS on macOS Big Sur

Today, we will be installing HoRNDIS on MacOS Big Sur for USB Tethering on a real MacBook Pro because Apple dropped Wi-Fi support. If you have a  HackBook system that has a poor wireless connection or lost support as well, this workaround will be successful for you if your previous attempts failed.

You may also utilize an alternate method which is not shown in the video that works only on a Hackintosh and HackBook as it uses the bootloader software in the EFI System Partition (ESP) to make your Android Smartphone appear to be a secondary Wi-Fi/Ethernet port to provide a working connection.
