  1. Enabling graphical acceleration on Intel HD Graphics is not an exact science. But I can say that it depends on the Framebuffer used. The tip I give you is: use the same Framebuffer used in the Sierra or High Sierra. Ahm, we're talking about an Upgrade, right? Anyway, there is a material on which I have based all the experiments described so far. It's a bit long, but you can go directly to the part of choosing the right Framebuffer for your system. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ I strongly recommend the reading and a bit of persistence. Try this FakeID: 0x12345678 If that works, you can configure FakeID from the Clover Configurator so that it will always load. If it does not work, you will need to test the Framebuffer following the guidelines of the above knowledge base. Good Hack!
  2. Hello Michael. The Kexts used are those made available in Olarila's macOS with the exception of a few. In this Guide I describe my experience with the High Sierra, version used in the Update for Mojave. https://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=6075 I recommend translating the page because it is in Brazilian Portuguese. Good Hack!
  3. Update for MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 As commented in the Guide, including dosdude1 on your site and YouTube, the APFS partition scheme receives updates normally. But I decided to recreate the Pen drive with the most current version of MacOS Mojave Patcher, 1.3.2. To download the Mojave image, I opted for the utility itself that downloads the latest version of macOS directly from Apple servers. Downloaded and re-created the Pen drive, follow the steps in the Guide. The only detail was regarding the video of this hardware. I needed a FakeID to load it after installing Mojave and applying the Patch to Post-installation. In this case the FakeID was 0x12345678 and "Voilà", macOS ready to be reconfigured. And as expected, two days after the Update, the dosdude1 Patch Updater reported on the availability of a new Patch. Good Hack!
  4. Probably because it is an update. If you already have a previous installation of macOS like the High Sierra, you can simply upgrade to Mojave with the dosdude1 MacOS Mojave Patcher. What you will need to do is to reinstall the installed Kexts directly on the system as they will be overwritten. It worked for me and I hope it works for you too. Good Hack!
  5. Thank you, MaLd0n! It was the best I got from the knowledge I gained.
  6. https://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=9574 Based on the experience described in the MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 Guide - Intel HD Graphics (1st Gen - Arrandale) and lack of references on the subject, I decided to write a bit more about this bold and successful partnership. https://Olarila.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=51&sid=fb9c63ad66bb888da9cfd77bd85cd725 Very well thought out and versatile, the versions of Olarila's macOS can be considered as complete in the Hackintosh universe. Not quite, the Olarila forum is among the best regarding support offered and diversity of guides. http://dosdude1.com/mojave/ In another follow-up, this time aimed at Mac users, dosdude1 has a powerful tool capable of running modern versions of macOS on older Apple hardware. Universities that are distinct and at the same time parallel with a common goal, get the richest experiences of using macOS in different hardware. With this reflection and the desire for such an experience of use, Olarila's macOS and dosdude1 were added together and the result could not have been better. The near-perfect run of the latest Apple OS on third-party hardware at nearly 10 years. MOVING ON The Olarila forum provides its members with an image of Mojave to be installed on compatible hardware. However, due to the requirements of this new version of macOS, older systems were stuck in the High Sierra version. But the most notable feature of Hackintosh is the ability to run the tightest operating system ever created almost universally. Considering this, to better exploit the potential reached up to the High Sierra was the route taken for the Mojave. With Clover Bootloader non-Apple systems gain the ability to run macOS. In terms, it creates the ideal ecosystem for the operating system to understand that those are Apple hardwares. It is clear that "not everything is flowers" and the biggest hacks for Hackintosh start right at this stage. However, Clover is powerfully versatile and has several features for loading and installing macOS into the system. Once this step is completed and the post-installation with the Kexts, Patches and Utilities is done, the system is completely capable of use and possible upgrades. UNDERSTANDING MORE By comparing the stability, success rate and use without fear of many users of the overvalued old Macs, dosdude1 has become a sure bet. However, it was necessary to understand a little more of the tool. In the portal where macOS Mojave Patcher is distributed, the developer describes in detail the supported systems. As well as unsupported systems. After reading and finding that the target system of the first Guide was supported, it was time to proceed with the experiment. But in the Hackintosh way how to know about the supported systems? Through the Clover Configurator, under the SMBIOS option, below the question mark icon, a list can be loaded with information from almost all Macs already created by Apple. Based on this information, the system would be able to receive the Mojave. So the question arises, the list described by dosdude1 would serve to delimit the systems in the Hackintosh universe? Not necessarily, as the list descends through the Clover Configurator points primarily to the processor model. And one more, then would any system receive the Mojave? Probably not, because even for earlier versions of macOS the technologies present on the processor determined whether or not the hardware was eligible for upgrade. So the title "Mojave for almost everyone". GET TO WORK Following the steps outlined in the dosdude1 site for creating the Mojave installation pen drive, it was time to put theory into practice. The High Sierra has since been restarted with the pen drive still inserted. However, the first finding was that dosdude1 does not use the Clover to load the system, but Apple's own bootloader. With the device turned off, the thumb drive was removed to restart the system. Within seconds the Clover Bootloader was loaded. With the pen drive inserted again the Mojave installer appeared and the system loading process was commonplace until the graphic part was displayed. At that time, unlike the notice that it was not possible to proceed with the installation, the installer would inform you about the options to proceed. So far the experience had proved to be successful, but it was not over yet. One of the prerequisites for Mojave, especially for future upgrades, is the use of the APFS partition scheme. In the experiment this was the system chosen still in the High Sierra. However, according to dosdude1 the Mac OS Expanded (Journaling) scheme is also supported, but this would prevent the new macOS from automatically updating. As described in the Guide (1st Gen - Arrandale), the Mojave installation was performed as an upgrade. The reasons were: 1 - The need to maintain the pre-existing EFI partition already configured in the High Sierra; 2 - The dosdude1 does not load the Mojave installer with just the Clover present on the Olarila's macOS flash drive. After the long update, it was time to run dosdude patches1. However, once again it was necessary to remove the Mojave pen drive for the Clover to load. As a precaution, the equipment was turned off. With the pen drive inserted again, the installer appeared next to the partition where Mojave was installed. However, dudude1 works in two steps and it was necessary to load the installer as if it were the first time and then the installation would be finished. In this step, the model compatible with the experiment system was selected and the macOS Mojave Patcher automatically displayed the patch options. Although some did not make sense in Hackintosh, all suggestions were retained and to finalize the target volume where the Mojave was installed selected and Patch! GOAL ACHIEVED The first boot was like all the others, without the beauty and feature of the macOS and very slow. But soon after the installation of the Kexts that were overwritten in the update, running utilities and some Mojave commands was ready. After restarting, something already expected, the clear theme presented unusual features like no transparency in the sidebar of the Finder and Menu Bar. However, in the dark theme everything was as it should and Mojave presented beauty beyond expectation. In addition to the new theme, applications and functions of Mojave, another interesting point is the presence of Patcher Updater installed by the macOS Mojave Patcher. With it updated patches are automatically suggested as soon as they become available. All this care is for macOS to remain stable and functional even after receiving updates from Apple. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS "Think out of the box". Just this, think differently, try it, move on. Of course some experiences in the Hackintosh universe are almost revolutionary depending on the perspective. The experience described here is one of the least shocking, and it comes down to guiding those who wish to take older systems to a new level. Although subtle. This text was baptized as an Article not for importance but for the less summarized form, distancing itself from the usual Guides and Tutorials. Being evident the didactic character of the reports without prejudice of other sources of knowledge, even mentioned here. There were no modifications of instructions other than those required for the experiment described. In addition, allowing a better and broader understanding of the use of two distinct tools, Olarila's macOS and dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher, which together have overcome one of many barriers already existing in the Hackintosh environment.

  7. erroruser, I was thinking about your suggestion and observing the lack of interest of the Brazilian public, I decided to translate the guide. I hope this experience helps other people reach the Mojave macOS. Thank you.
  8. erroruser, Only if I translate for Google. But I thank you for the compliment.
  9. The experience described in this guide is not limited to the hardware and version of the discussed macOS. The macOS Mojave, despite the desert inspiration, is a watershed between the traditional versions of macOS and the future planned by Apple. But why not take advantage of this innovation in older hardware? This question motivated me to seek solutions until I came to the conclusion that it was possible, but with the ideal conditions. Looking at the successful experiences of old Mac users and comparing to the Hackintosh universe, I decided to add two powerful tools to achieve this goal: Olarila High Sierra 10.13.6 and dosdude1. With the Olarila High Sierra, properly installed and configured on the laptop, conditions were created for dosdude1 to understand that this was the hardware of an old Mac. The process occurred as an upgrade from High Sierra to Mojave, because in a clean install the configured EFI partition would be lost. In the present experiment, updating was the only way. For dosdude1 did not only load the Mojave with the Clover present in the Olarila High Sierra. It is possible that in other experiments the process only flows with the pen drivers. Requirements 1 - MacOS Sierra or High Sierra version previously installed and configured. (Maybe it will work with earlier versions of macOS). Download - 2 - APFS partition scheme so that Mojave can receive future updates via the App Store. It also works with the Mac OS Expanded (Journaling) scheme, however, Mojave will not update automatically. 3 - Mac OS installer Mojave 10.14.4 already downloaded and loaded in Applications. 4 - Latest version of dosdude1 macOS Mojave Patcher. Download - http://dosdude1.com 5 - 16 GB drive pen. 6 - Backup of all Kexts installed directly on the system (Library / Extensions or System / Library / Extensions), as they will be overwritten. Update Based on the previous installation of macOS with the APFS partition, the update was started only by clicking Continue. After the delayed update, it was necessary to remove the pen drive with the Mojave installer so that the Clover could be loaded. Post-installation With the pen drive inserted again, just like the older Macs, it was necessary to load the Mojave installer again so that the Post-Installation utility could run. In this step the Mac model corresponding to the hardware used was selected and the patches were automatically suggested. Then select the disk where macOS was installed. First startup After the usual setup steps it was the first time the initial boot. Despite the slowness, Mojave started with an Optimization process. Installation of Kexts The update overwrites the Kexts installed directly on the previous version of macOS and had to be reinstalled with the Kext Utility. Among the overwritten Kexts is (1st Gen) Intel HD Graphics. Donwload – https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/208-1st-gen-intel-hd-graphics-kexts/ AirPortAtheros40 installer (Wi-Fi) It escapes the subject of the guide, but I found it interesting to comment. Mojave no longer supports Atheros Wi-Fi adapters, preventing the wireless network from working. To work around this situation, you ran AirPortAtheros40 installer. Download – The result was immediate. The AirPortAtheros40 installer required the restart of Mojave, but it was necessary to fix the system slowness. TRIM (SSD) Another issue besides the subject of the guide, but equally important. Although Mojave has been installed on an SSD, without the TRIM feature enabled, the experience of using macOS can be very unpleasant. To correct the problem the command was executed in the terminal: sudo trimforce enable Post-configuration After the settings and restart of the macOS the graphic result was expected. Because of Mojave's requirements and the capacity of older graphics chips, the light theme had unusual color and opacity. But in the dark theme the result was quite satisfactory as can be seen in Safari. As well as in the Launchpad. Still in the Launchpad, in Others, you could find dosdude1's automatic updates utility. Shortly thereafter the utility displays alert for new updates that are more geared towards older Macs. Installation in the Hackintosh scenario is not mandatory. To finish, a more recent screenshot displaying transparency under the dark theme in the Finder.
