I`m trying to update my hack from Catalina 10.15 to Monterey but
after some time I got the error:

Não é possível prosseguir com a instalação porque o instalador está danificado.

or something like:

Cannot continue install because setup installation is broken

someone know how to fix that ?

The correct translation is this:

"Unable to proceed with the installation because the installer is damaged."

So, you need to remake your Monterey installer.
By that I mean the following:
  • Delete your existing copy of Monterey.
  • Download a new copy of the Monterey installation app from Apple.
If you are trying a direct upgrade from Catalina to Monterey use the new installer.

If you are using a USB installation drive, then you need to do the following:
  • Erase the USB drive.
  • Recreate the Monterey USB installer, with the CreateInstallMedia Terminal Command.
  • You can use your OpenCore EFI, just remember to update the kexts etc. so they work with Monterey.
But under no circumstances should you try to recreate the USB or upgrade Catalina with the same Damaged Monterey installer.

Are you deleting the Data folder that is created on the Root of your macOS drive, as well as the damaged installer?

Look on the Root of your macOS drive. There are usually only 4 folders.

Do you see any other new folders on your macOS drive?

If yes, and it is the temp folder created by the installer you will need to delete this additional folder before you can try with an undamaged installation app.
