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.  :(

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





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...



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...


				<string>AppleRTC for 10.14.4</string>

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



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