would much prefer if it was Nvidia drivers :)

 

I guess we just have to draw a line under the possibility to see one day webdrivers for Mojave. Apple just released 10.14.4, the next one should be 10.14.5 then macOS 10.15 (only ~2 months before WWDC keynote) and certainly a last 10.14.6 - I do not see how this could change.  :(

 

Maybe Apple will change its policy with macOS 10.15 but I deeply doubt.  :(

looking forward to 10.15 no doubt it will exclude my mac mini 2012

 

i think the good thing is that the Mac OSX different  versions are not that much different, yea?

 

and I agree with PippoX0 who needs dark mode in safari when addblock is such a pain to add to Safari?

 

speaking of which, my Firefox lately does dark mode all on it's own

Smooth update to 10.14.4 on my legacy Dell XPS M1530, thanks to @dosdude's macOS Mojave Patcher ...

 

Spoiler

Ver 1.3.0 has post install patches to re-enable graphics acceleration for legacy graphics cards (including my Nvidia Tesla based GeForce 8600M GT) and a fix to enable previously unsupported BCM94321 WiFi cards :thumbsup_anim:.

 

Edit:  I noticed that I was getting CMOS resets on my legacy Ga-P55aUD3 desktop (system 2 in my sig) after updating to 10.14.4.  This was fixed by replacing the AppleRTC.kext in 10.14.4 with the vanilla kext from 10.14.3 (and rebuilding kextcache/pre-linked kernel).

 

Maybe one of the Clover developers can update Clover's automatic AppleRTC.kext patching to handle the newer version - attached are the vanilla kexts from 10.14.3 and 10.14.4 :angel_not:...

Only CMOS reset? Was better #LoL, on my case is EFI Partition has corrupted with 10.14.4 for unknown reason; with or w/o EFICheckDisabler.kext. I then retried with 10.14.4 clean install (not UpdCombo) to a pure GPT Disk; rebuilding Clover + EFI stuffs there with only mandatory kexts (SMC & PS2Controller only); weird is once rebooted my ESP became unreadable again.

 

Ah, nevermind.. I've updated to 10.14.5 Beta and having no issue with ESP. Using RTCMemoryFixup get no CMOS reset. Could be, specific issue with my old UEFI 2.0 firmware, or my bad mach though.

 

#EDIT: Previously with 10.14.4, once CMOS reset occurred.. my EFI Boot Loader Entries created with `bcfg boot add` were cleansed upon booting either, cool.

Hey @fusion71au, did you tried use the RTCMemoryFixup?

 

Yeah, I tried injecting RTCMemoryFixup.kext from /CLOVER/kexts/10.14 with boot arg rtcfx_exclude=10-FF as mentioned in this post by @lvs1974.  Unfortunately, doesn't seem to work for me, maybe because I'm not fully understanding how to use it :|.

 

Just hoping that one of the Clover developers is able to update the AppleRTC patch for 10.14.4 as this is a simpler solution for me...

 

Edit1

Adding the following code from @RodionS in Clover's config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KextsToPatch prevents my BIOS/CMOS from resetting when booting into 10.14.4...

 

<key>KextsToPatch</key>
		<array>
			<dict>
				<key>Comment</key>
				<string>AppleRTC for 10.14.4</string>
				<key>MatchOS</key>
				<string>10.14.x</string>
				<key>Find</key>
				<data>dTMPtw==</data>
				<key>Name</key>
				<string>com.apple.driver.AppleRTC</string>
				<key>Replace</key>
				<data>6zMPtw==</data>
			</dict>

Thanks to @Rodion for the code and @ctich for pointing me in the right direction to this post.

 

Edit2

Issue fixed in Clover r4911+, thanks to @Sherlocks :).

      I have tried to install clover via no UEFI legacy mode (and with UEFI method) using the method here (http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-desktop-guides/144426-how-install-os-x-yosemite-using-clover.html)
      both times I can get to just past the clover boot screen and it freezes after that.
      I have verbose (-v) selected in boot options: On the non-UEFI install then it hangs on:
      "Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key>...."
       
      I have had a lot of issues with trying to get the installer working and many different things that had to be disabled but now it just gets to here and stops. Some times it will glitch out on this screen and give me a the circle with the line through it and text garbage around it where the text in the pictures are.
       
      Need help please.
       
      This is the laptop im using the specs are the same nothing has changed.

      TLDR: I've gotten myself up a creek without even a working keyboard and mouse. 
       
      My setup
       
      Asus X99 Deluxe motherboard
      Dual Asus Radeon R9 280x GPU's
      i7 5930K CPU
      G.Skill - Ripjaws Series 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
      Highpoint 2721 RAID controller + 4 hard drives
      EVO 850 Pro SSD
      Mojave 10.14.4
      Profile: MacPro6,1
       
      I had installed Mojave and had set it up to boot directly into my user account with no need for a password. Both Clover and IORegistryExplorer were set as log-in items. This was because I was working on activating my SS ports. The X99 Deluxe USB ports are set up as follows:
       
      USB3_E1 to USB3_E10 at the rear (Asmedia controller)
      USB_13 & USB_14 at the rear (Intel)
      USB1112 & USB1314 (headers on the motherboard)
      USB3_12 & USB3_34 (front)
       
      This adds up to potentially 34 ports, far more than I need. I had three patches enabled to remove the 15 port limit but they weren't doing the trick. So I disabled the ten USB3 ports on the rear that are subject to the Asmedia controller in BIOS. I also disabled the Asmedia USB3 controller. All I really need are the four USB3 ports on the front panel, along with one of the motherboard USB2 headers. This should have gotten me down to under 15 ports. One SS port appeared in IORegistryExplorer but I couldn't locate it when I tested every active port.
       
      I'm not sure what I did but everything went sideways. I found that I was booting into Mojave, Clover and IORegistryExplorer were launching but the mouse cursor was frozen in the corner and the keyboard was dead. Moving the keyboard and mouse to different ports didn't help. Meanwhile the OS was giving me a message about looking for a BT keyboard which I don't have. 
       
      I've tried the following to no avail:
       
      -- reinstalling Mojave
      -- various combinations of USBInjectAll.kext, XHCI-X99-injector.kext, X99_Injector USB 3.kext, and GenericUSBXHCI.kext
      -- resetting the CMOS
      -- enabling and disabling the ten Asmedia USB3 ports on the rear
      -- enabling and disabling the port limit patches below:
       

       

       
      I haven't reflashed my BIOS which is something I do when starting from scratch, although I don't see why it would matter. I'm open to that, burning incense, whatever will help.  In the end, I need at least 1-2 working USB3 ports. But right now, I just need to get my keyboard and mouse working again. I've been going in circles on this all day and could really use some good ideas.
       
      Thanks so much.
