Hackintosh Mojave 10.14.2 Update Guide

The Mojave 10.14.2 update is the second major update for macOS Mojave. This update is very minor with some small change that addresses issues with certain Macsas well as some bug fixes. There are of course likely to be numerous changes not included in the release notes.

10.14.2 Update Quick Notes:

Hackintosh 10.14.2 Install Overview

This update is not automatic, when the computer requests a reboot after installing in the app store you will have to select: Install macOS from “drive_name” to complete the update in Clover EFI Menu on boot. I personally had to select Install macOS From… 3 times experiencing  before finally getting a loading bar and screen to appear so don’t worry if it restarts a couple times after selecting install from the Clover Menu.

Note: Mojave 10.1.4.2 should be a  smooth update for those already on 10.14.1. Those upgrading from earlier version of Mojave (10.14.0 or Beta) or a High Sierra build will need to update their EFI folder by adding the latest version of WhateverGreen.kext, Lilu.kext, uncheck inject intel in config.plist and change their ig platform id to a 10.14.1+ compatible id to avoid any issues with the new update. I personally was able to get away with installing the update and booting with making the changes above, but choose to after.

Warning: 10.14.2. is not for those relying on Nvidia Graphics to drive graphics as Web Drivers have yet to be released this is for Intel Graphics and AMD Ryzen/Vega GPU users only.

Download Mojave 10.14.2 (Build 18C49)

The latest update of Mojave can be downloaded from the App Store by going to the Mojave page or through Software Update in System Preferences.

Note: If you have trouble updating with the above method as a few have experienced updating to 10.14.2 you can alternatively update by downloading and running the .dmg version of the update from Apple’s support page:

Hackintosh 10.14.2 USB Patch

High Sierra 10.14.2 requires the USB patch from 10.14.1 to get all USB/USB3 ports recognized and working. You will also need USBInjectAll.kext if you don’t already have it.

Lilu.kext will need to be updated to the latest version to patch the USB issues that first appeared in 10.14.1 which carry over to 10.14.2.

  1. Mount EFI Partition with Clover Configurator
  2. Navigate to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/
  3. Right-click open config.plist with Clover Configurator
  4. Click Kernel and Kext Patches under SECTIONS of Clover Configurator
  5. Click the “+” button near the bottom to add this patch:
    • Name*: com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCI
    • Find* [HEX]: 83FB0F0F 838F0400 00
    • Replace* [HEX]: 83FB0F90 90909090 90​
    • Comment: USB 10.14.1+ by PMHeart
    • MatchOS: 10.14.x
  6. Save config.plist
  7. Download the latest release of Lilu.kext
  8. Paste Lilu.kext into /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/Other

Clover Hackintosh 10.14.1 USB Patch

Hackintosh Nvidia 10.14.2 Web Drivers

Nvidia Web drivers have yet to be released for 10.14.2 or for any version of Mojave and therefore anyone who relies on Nvidia will be stuck in Limbo for the time being. As to why it’s taking so long the problem may not entirely be Nvidia’s fault, according to Nvidia there have been drivers posted for Mojave since 10.14.0, but they are stuck waiting for approval from Apple as the drivers likely need to be signed to work properly without requiring all Nvidia users to disable SIP/Gatekeeper on their Mac.

You mistyped Macs with “Macsas”

I upgraded with a Aorus Z370 Gaming 5 and Radeon RX580 with no problems I can see. Required 3 restarts. Took about 40 minutes.

The USB patch doesn’t work for me. In 10.14.1 I got the USB to work but only at USB 2.0 speeds, now in 10.14.2 the drives won’t mount at all…

I’m using a Radeon RX 580 8192 MB myself, looks like we’ll need to wait for WhateverGreen.kext to be updated.

Update: I got by the black screen issue.

I updated Lilu and WhateverGreen to the latest; they were updated 2 days ago as of this post.
I updated Clover to the latest r4813

Installation completed and went smoothly with no black screen or video output signal loss.

typing this post from 10.14.2.

Boots to black screen when selecting MacOS Installer from Clover.
Radeon R9 280 using DVI cable. Tried with HDMI cable, same result.
Restarted and selected Mojave from Clover and it booted back into MacOS, still at 10.14.1.
I gave it about 40 minutes at the black screen, just in case it was actually installing but with no video output for some reason.

Risky to reboot, but here I am.

tried now to update lilu and other kexts to the latest, including FakeSMS.

it reboots as soon as it shows the first white section on the install progress bar.

So I can install 14.2 when I boot from my USB, but the black screen problem persist with my internal EFI folder… Hear me out, as is my computer running mac os cannot have the Rename HDAS to HDEF Patch and support external storage devices on ports other than the USB 3.1. The crazy thing is on the system report the computer still recognizes the USB 3.0 bus while showing the mouse and keyboard on the USB 3.0 bus. On my install USB the HDAS to HDEF, XHC1 to XHC, and XHCl to XHC patches are disabled and it can boot 14.2, just without sound, and my mouse and keyboard still work. No sound is a major deal breaker so I did a time machine restore back to 14.1, I’m not updating until I can keep most of my config.plist settings, but I do think that there might be a major issue with some ACPI patches on Mojave.

aside from FakeSMC and Lilu kext, I run a pretty vanilla setup, so I don’t think any of what you wrote has to do with the problem I am seeing.

It’s an ATI problem, as most users with ATI cards are experiencing the same issue.

Just to let everyone know, the new Lilu.kext that was just released solves both the 14.2 black screen and USB issues.

The EFI on your hackintosh drive is most likely set as hidden; there’s an easy fix if you have windows on another drive. Download Easy UEFI and set the hackintosh EFI boot to the top of the list and reboot from Easy UEFI’s GUI, not from the windows start menu.

After doing the usb patch, my Hackintosh hangs on the Apple logo screen. Any way I can roll back before the usb patch?
