You may have passed the 15 port limit (correct me if I'm wrong: but the patch for the 15 port limit doesn't work in Mojave)
Remember that one USB3 port is actually two ports (a USB2 and USB3)
Unfortunately that means you have to choose what ports you want, and what ports you can live without (I made the ports closest to me both USB2 and USB3, whilst the ports that I don't use common as USB2, so that it works with both USB2 and USB3)
looks like I'm

8 back USB 2
2 front USB 2
4 USB 3
1 BT

Yeah, you have yourself setup for about 18 USB ports there. So, any of the Blue ports on the back are actually USB 3.0. The only ones that are actually 2.0 are the two above the legacy PS/2 port on the far left.

As for me. I have everything working and stable except for graphics acceleration. For the love of #$%@, I cannot get graphics acceleration to work.

I had SO much trouble with graphics acceleration.
Try using ig-platform-id 0x3E920000 (I used this with HDMI) and 0x3E9B0007 (I'm using rn with DP).
I think I attached my EFI recently in the thread, you could try using my graphics settings in it.
Good luck!

So are you using any other injections than that? I have placed that information previously in clover settings, added the device information to Properties and then added the platform and device IDs in graphics but still had not acceleration.

I am using other injections inside of my config.plist, however it's all a jumbled mess, and I'm not sure which injections are actually making the graphics work. Try these out, however:
Boot>Arguments>-disablegfxfirmware
(NOTHING IN DEVICES>FAKE ID>INTELGFX)
Devices>Add Properties> Device: IntelGFX; Disabled: NO; Key: APPL,GfxYTile; Value: 0AAAAA00
Graphics>Inject Intel

and that's all I can find in my config. I do not believe that I have any external injections.

I have attached my EFI. If you have a backup ready you could maybe try booting with it, however I think it's best to look at the settings and see if you can make something work.

Good luck!

Sorry hadn't been getting much traction on this thread up until about this week so had somewhat given up on forum responses.
Setup is pretty much exact same as Eriks
ASRock Z370m-itx
i5 8400
UHD 630 integrated graphics
swapped over to Broadcom 2z chip for WiFi/BT

However, I was able to get everything but the integrated graphics working up until last night. On the other major forum another user posted he was able to get my almost exact same setup working with a users clover folder from here. Grabbed that this morning and dropped the clover folder in and bam everything is working now. Looks like my biggest mistake was that when I was attempting to do the framebuffer patching I was only adding the minimum stuff in for the ig-platform-id and device id (meaning the framebuffer patch enable stuff) and the one I am now using has all the pipe information and everything for both the ig-platform as well as the device-id.

Do you mind attaching that EFI folder? I don't know how well I configured my graphics :p

Yup will do tonight when I am home from work. It is setup for an H370 Gigabyte board but aside from having to go through and re-enable all my other USB ports and do the cleanup with hackintool everything else works perfectly from what I have seen.
