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.

Hackintosh 10.13.6 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.

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.
