HoRNDIS on macOS Catalina

Today, we will be installing HoRNDIS on macOS Catalina (works for macOS Big Sur as well) for USB Tethering on a HackBook system that has a poor wireless connection. If you have a real MacBook or MacBook Pro with a poor connection or that Apple dropped support, you will require an alternate method which is not shown in the video.

The method that you are about to see utilizes bootloader software to make your Android Smartphone appear to be a secondary Wi-Fi/Ethernet port to provide a working connection.
