10.14.6 Update Quick Notes:

Hackintosh 10.14.6 Install Overview

Clover EFI Bootloader: I recommend updating to a new version of Clover r4862 or later to avoid kext injection breaking in 10.14.6.

Clover should handle the update automatically after rebooting, if not when the computer requests a reboot after installing in the app store you will have to manually select: Install macOS from “drive_name” to complete the update in Clover EFI Menu on boot.

Nvidia Graphics: Nvidia Drivers have never been released for macOS Mojave and looks like they will never be coming.

Graphics Injection: if your coming from  an earlier version such as 10.14.0 or Mojave Beta its super important you adapt the new version graphics is handled in clover by setting the proper property values and no longer using Inject Intel. I have some examples provided in Step 3.1 of the Mojave Desktop Guide for different setups. If not set properly as an example their could be super slow login times along with slowdown in apps reopening with Intel Graphics or  if using AMD graphics they could boot to a black screen, both situations can be avoided by setting ig-platform-id properly in both places and updating graphical related kexts.

Download Mojave 10.14.6 (Build 18G95)

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. However if the update isn’t showing as available you can alternatively update by downloading and running the .dmg version of the update from Apple’s support page:

Hackintosh 10.14.6 USB Patch

If anyone has trouble booting after updating to 10.14.6, I’m providing a basic EFI that is a part of the Mojave Install Guide

The EFI is configured for a Z370 build so if you are using something else you will need to configure the config.plist with the proper settings for your build.

Hi thanks for your continuous Updates!

My problem right now: My disk speed is terrible. I just compared to a Macbook Pro 2018 and the result:

Macbook Pro: 2667/2570 MB/s
Hackintosh: 303/1673 MB/s

Any idea how to fix this?

My specs:
CPU: Intel i3-8100 | Board: MSI Z370-A Pro | GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX580 | RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX | Drive: Samsung 960 EVO m.2 250 GB

Is it that you have such drivers installed? What it is? Why so many drivers? Send your EFI

As far as I can tell, these are the standard drivers, installed by Clover. What drivers are wrong in your opinion?

I updated and used the provided EFI file. My current rig is:

i7-8700k
16gb ram
Radeon rx580 Pulse

However, I’m noticing that when I open MacX Video Converter Pro, its saying that hardware encoding is NOT supported. However I seem to be getting good speeds with Bruce x (12 seconds) and FCX doesn’t appear to have any hiccups yet.

Will enabling hardware encoding speed things up even more or does it not matter with this update. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

You want to enable the igpu (headless) to have intel quicksync also it will use that for basic UI stuff

This was a bitch to update,
but I have everything working again, except my wifi card!
Everything was fine before hand, but now it just says “No hardware installed”.
Have I missed out on a kext I should have updated?

I did the update last night from 10.14.5 to 10.14.6 and all went smoothly. Everything seems to work as before. I am at Clover 5058 with updated kexts, on the ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero Build.

Hello, I was wondering after iMac release new smbios 19.1, is that the right configuration for 8600k + RX 570, iGPU is disabled?
I’m using currently 18.3 as you suggest on earlier posts or EFI file.
Will 19.1 solve problem with iGPU/RX 570 with QuickSync and HEVC. I must use shikigva=32 and shiki-id=Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94 which doesn’t exist anymore for Preview to work normally but still don’t have HW encoding. When I remove shikigva Preview won’t work anymore…
Is there some new solutions?

I’m in version 10.14.3
When installing the update using the dmg file
I cannot select the current MAC partition
Because it is in HFS format and the update requires AFPS partition
Is there any way to fix it?
