@AppleiPad556 here is the link. I found it while looking at my thread on the other forum.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-gigabyte-h370m-ds3h-i5-8400-mojave-10-4-2.267428/

I literally just took his entire clover folder and replaced mine. Everything is working for me, bluetooth, wifi, ethernet, even has sound with notes as to what color each input is! Only thing that did not work straight out was all of my other USB ports (mouse and keyboard were plugged in at that time). So I have to go through Hackintool to create the USBPorts.kext file to map all my USB ports.

I had the same problem when I downloaded the above linked clover folder. You will need to use Hackintool to clear out and reset your USB ports. I believe the clover folder already has USBInjectAll.kext in there so once you clear the ports with Hackintool you should have all discoverable (will need to restart after you clear the ports).

As @mizznfizz pointed out, I didn't add any USB configuration files, as I am unsure whether it is universal with the same MB. You can configure it using the Hackintool (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/release-hackintool-v1-8-0.254559/), or by creating an SSDT file using RehabMan's guide (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-creating-a-custom-ssdt-for-usbinjectall-kext.211311/)

Hello PPL, Many thanks to the author of the guide and all the users who are helping in it. I have a question that arises to me since I think to mount the same configuration except the wifi that is the BCM94350ZAE and a RX 580 pulse 8gb. watching the expectations of the pass on your page, do not reach the limit of 15, the 6 USB 3.0 back I think use, USB 2.0 back will use the keyboard and mouse and there is 1 header USB 3.0 internal would be for the case and would not use the last internal USB 2.0 header. Is it worth the work of the SSDT or do I leave them all active? Only with UsbInjectAll would it be worth it? and renaming the USB in the DSDT? this is the configuration that brings:

- 1 x USB 2.0 Header (Supports 2 USB 2.0 ports) (Supports ESD Protection)
- 1 x USB 3.1 Gen1 Header (Supports 2 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports) (Supports ESD Protection)
- 2 x USB 2.0 Ports (Supports ESD Protection)
- 6 x USB 3.1 Gen1 Ports (Supports ESD Protection)

There are twelve, what I do not know if there is some other limit? Is there a limit of 8 too?

Thanks everyone, good hack

Remember that one USB 3 actually counts for two USBs: USB 3 and USB 2.
Yes, do check out the SSDT guide (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-creating-a-custom-ssdt-for-usbinjectall-kext.211311/), or the Hackintool USB guide. It's not too bad, and once you finish you have flexibility as to which USBs to use
USBInjectAll does pose problems when used on its own, and it does not offer flexibility as to which USBs to use (you may not get the right USB ports)

The Hackintool website (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/release-hackintool-v1-8-2.254559/) has a guide under USB Port Patching. Read through that, and you'll get all the instructions you need
Once you finish deleting all the USBs you don't need, press the Export button to create a .kext file to put inside of EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other

Thanks a lot it works, but I noticed another problem, the audio does not work after the stop I have to restart to make it work.
