Has anyone installed this update? I did earlier and everything seems to work except that USB HDDs are not detected on the front I/O but are on the ports on the rear I/O on the mobo.

The issue you have encountered following the update is more likely to be related to your hack's USB configuration than the update to 10.13.6.

Do you have a SSDT-UIAC.aml in EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched, that paired with USBInjectAll.kext identifies and activates the Intel USB ports on your Hack?

What other USB fixes have you applied to your Hack in respect of the Asmedi and Realtek USB ports? Patches in config.plist; DSDT Patched and copied to EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched; or custom USB related SSDT's?

Your motherboard has 3 different USB controllers - Intel, Asmedia and Realtek, see below information from Gigabyte for your motherboard: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z370-AORUS-Gaming-7-rev-10#sp

Chipset+2 ASMedia® USB 3.1 Gen 2 Controllers:​
  1. 1 x USB Type-C™ port with USB 3.1 Gen 2 support, available through the internal USB header
  2. 1 x USB Type-C™ port on the back panel, with USB 3.1 Gen 2 support
  3. 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port (red) on the back panel
Chipset+Realtek® USB 3.1 Gen 1 Hub:​
  1. 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports available through the internal USB header
Chipset:​
  1. 5 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports on the back panel
  2. 4 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports available through the internal USB headers
The final 'Chipset' USB ports will be the Intel ports.

USB configuration with any hackintosh has been a bit of a pain since El Capitan. If you haven't already done so, you need to create a custom SSDT_UIAC for your Hack. Rehabman has created a guide over on Tonymacx86 showing how to do this - https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-creating-a-custom-ssdt-for-usbinjectall-kext.211311/

Thanks Edhawk. Refreshing my memory, I believe I opened up the config file for Olarila and copied over the Kext patch 'com.apple.driver.sub.AppleUSBXHCI' settings to my main config file. However that no longer seems to be enough to make USB work on the front I/O.

Update: Upgrading to 10.14 from 10.13.6 using the suggested com.apple.driver.sub.AppleUSBXHCI kext patch has resolved the front I/O USB3 connectivity issues. I was going to follow the suggested advice to resolve the USB3 issues in 10.13.6 issues but this conveniently occurred first (but if it breaks with a later update I will). Cheers.
