@tperfitt - How are we planning on getting around FileVault authenticated logins to macOS Recovery (cmd+R) in Catalina? In Mojave, the disk was locked when trying to get into terminal, so one could format the disk and then gain access to run MDS. Now in Cat beta 8, I’m being sent into the Recovery Assistant to unlock the disk before macOS Utilities pops up. Only other option is Erase Mac from the File(?) menu which presumably pulls the OS down from Apple, which defeats the purpose of MDS (local reinstalls).
This is a 2016 13" MBP w/Touchbar (T1 Mac?) Trying to avoid the T2s at the moment because of the BridgeOS rollback problem.
