Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.2 Update Guide

The macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update brings stability, compatibility and security to your “Mac”. This update is light on features and only has improvements to compatibility with usb audio devices, voiceOver navigation for PDF’s in Preivew, Braille in it’s release notes.

The update also probably brings a number of undocumented fixes, improvements and changes to macOS.

10.13.2 Update

High Sierra 10.13.2 has been released along with it updated Nvidia Web Drivers. It’s safe to update to after updating Lilu.kext and apfs.efi if you have an Intel Hackintosh and not using a RX graphics card. For those with the RX 560, RX 570, RX 580. 10.13.2 breaks sleep functionality. For Ryzen users a fresh install of 10.13.2 is required

This update is done a little differently and is not automatically. When the computer reboots you may have to select: Install macOS from “drive_name” to complete the update.




Before updating follow these steps:

1. Update Lilu.kext

Lilu.kext version 1.21 or greater(+) is needed to successfully use High Sierra 10.13.2. Replace Lilu.kext in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other of your mounted partition.

2. Apple File System Users

If you already have a HFS+ drive it wont be converted to APFS if your worried about that.  A new version of apfs.efi is out with 10.13.2 update to the latest version if you have  an APFS formatted drive, unzip it and place it  in EFI/Clover/Drivers64UEFI/

3. Nvidia Web Drivers Update

If you are using a Nvidia graphics card in High Sierra either update your Web Drivers to the latest version or unistall them before installing the High Sierra 13.2 update.

Nvidia 10.13.2 Web Drivers:

Remember to enable SIP  when you install the web drivers and then disable them again after installing.

What about the sudden sleep problems with AMD GPUs that is happening with the macOS 10.13.2 updates? Is there a fix for it, yet?

I’m having a similar problem. Maybe wouldn’t call it sudden sleep — but sudden reboot. Has happened twice — and both times after I stepped away from my computer, so not sure what led up to it rebooting.

Also, wake from sleep is no longer working. Monitor won’t wake up.

hopefully Apple will fix this with 10.13.3… I had to go back to 10.12.6 once I moved up to 10.13.2 and find out it broke sleep with my RX 560..

Thanks for the guide. worked like a charm. for some reason I had to change my audio ID number from 11 to 1 in ALC1220.

For those of you you want a clean APFS file with out verbose try this one: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327584-apfsefi-without-verbose-boot/?p=2542660

Hi, first mega thanks you for all the work you share. your site is simply nice and amazing. i got a few question i’m running 10.13.1 on a GA-B75M-D3H, 99% perfectly (no native sound, no USB3) with a GT670 and a 4K2K Acer sound via HDMI … Well my question is: do you think i can follow your guide to build a USB stick with a full image of 10.13.2 the same way you show us instead 10.13 ? PS: if you have any advice regarding the choice of mobo i would like to build a good but cheap i7… Read more »

Thank you for your excellent guides. Their clarity has enabled me to fix problems video, audio, and USB problems that required a lot more digging on other sources. I have a Skylake machine with a GIGA mobo and nVidia 950 card.

Finally i was able to push the update trough, thanks for the tips !
the only problem i have (and it’s the same thing on fresh install on my other hackintosh) if i disable verbose mode, the system loads but grey apple screen stays on top for some reason…

Isaac

Seems the same to me… Load finishes and progress bar and apple logo still “on Top” and no way to use macos, anyway seems to be loaded correctly. Booting in verbose mode does the trick… Maybe a Clover update soon will arrange the problem.

I run 10.13.2 on a MacBook Pro and an Hackintosh, and on both the options Wake for Ethernet Network access and Enable Power Nap are no longer in Energy Saver; anyone has the same?

It shows up in my Hackintosh on 10.13.2. I have no WiFi on this machine so, by default, have an ethernet cable plugged in. Just an idea, but it may not show up if there is no ethernet cable plugged in. After all why show this option if the machine has no ethernet access!

Yes, it would make sens, since both computers are connected on WiFi

Finally got sick of seeing Update Available so went to upgrade. All was fine apart from no sound, Internal Speakers had vanished.
Board is Asus z270G with S1220A Audio.

End result, I had to use 1.2.2.RELEASE of AppleALC.kext as well to get Internal Speakers’ back.

Hi after done all the preps mentioned (Lilla etc) the update to 10.13.2 was very smooth.
But after reboot I noticed that my Bluetooth is gone. I mean 10.13.2 does not find any BT hardware even. It worked fine in 10.13.1 and If a boot on my backup disk with 10.13.1 BT works, but not on 10.13.2. Wifi works fine, and its on the same card.
:-/
using :RehabMan: OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM
Any ideas?

I have replaced the original Intel wifi/BT card with the Broadcom BCM94352Z

Lilu not Lilla, sorry for that. Updated apfs.efi, Lilu and Nvidia drivers, but BT is “Not Available”, not even in HW report

So I just finished building my first hackintosh and a strange, but not super major, problem has surfaced. When I shutdown my system and turn it back on I get an almost blurred picture of what is on my screen. To fix this I just change the resolution and set it back to my original settings and it’s gone. I always wondered why this was, but after further inspection on my “about this mac” tab I realized my hack thinks the monitor I’m using is a 71-inch TV.. I am currently using a 27-inch TV as my display ran through… Read more »
