Here is the full Instructions summed up.
1) Download the stub High Sierra Installer from App Store.
2) Run the installer, select the volume to install to (To make sure that there will be no data loss make a new volume ~25GB and select that as the volume to install to.) and select install,
It will now download all the files to the volume selected.
3) After downloading, it will automatically reboot in 30s. Make sure to quit the installer when the countdown starts. VERY IMPORTANT.
To Quit, Right Click the Installer's icon on the dock and select Quit
The files will be downloaded to the Volume you selected.
4) Open terminal and run the commands in order
mkdir /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport
cd /Volumes/<name of the volume you created here>
cd /macOS\ Install\ Data
find . -mount | cpio -pvdm /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport
10) Press Ctrl + D to exit from super user.
cd /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport
xar -xf InstallESDDmg.pkg InstallESD.dmg
sudo rm InstallESDDmg.pkg
open -e /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallInfo.plist
15)Search for InstallESDDmg.pkg. You'll get to a section like this. There may be small differences so don't just copy paste the entire code block.
<key>Payload Image Info</key> <dict> <key>URL</key> <string>InstallESDDmg.pkg</string> <key>chunklistURL</key> <string>InstallESDDmg.chunklist</string> <key>chunklistid</key> <string>com.apple.chunklist.InstallESDDmg</string> <key>id</key> <string>com.apple.pkg.InstallESDDmg</string> <key>sha1</key> <string></string> <key>version</key> <string>10.13.6.0.0.1532145923</string> </dict>
Replace InstallESDDmg.pkg with InstallESD.dmg
Replace com.apple.pkg.InstallESDDmg with com.apple.pkg.InstallESD
Now it will look like this (there may be differneces especially in the last line. ie version)
<string>OSInstall.mpkg</string> <key>Payload Image Info</key> <dict> <key>URL</key> <string>InstallESD.dmg</string> <key>id</key> <string>com.apple.pkg.InstallESD</string> <key>sha1</key> <string></string> <key>version</key> <string>10.13.6.0.0.1532145923</string> </dict>
For Mojave steps seem to be the same just replace High Sierra with Mojave. And delete a file named incompatibleapps.pkg.
You can create an install media DMG,bootable USB or ISO.
Make an ISO for VMs.
Do the hackintosh steps to get ito to boot for hackintoshing.

Alternatively you can use the macadmin-scripts to make the full installer. The follow the hackintosh steps.
