@Megafc2000 mostly yes but a few things changed because of Mojave itself...

Does anyone managed to find an Aptio file that boots whenever the internal Thunderbolt is enabled? As soon as I turn it on, every single Aptio file available I try doesn't pass boot time with the standard "Error allocating pages" error messages.

Yes it works for mojave. OSX is even easier to install now, a lot of tools available on this site such as hackingtool etc and newer versions of kexts (WhateverGreen, Lilu) simplify builds vastly. Gone are the days of shiki, intelgraphicsfixup and nvidiafixup kexts.

@vk2fro I am considering upgrading to Mojave, but the old saying "If it 'aint broke don't fix it " keeps coming up in my mind. Any advice or "look out for" comments my wise friend?

Your GTX 1060 is not supported in Mojave due to the lack of Nvidia web drivers.

Thanks BreBo! Perhaps I should just spend the money and buy a SAPPHIRE Radeon RX580 PULSE 8GB card and be done with the NVIDIA issues. I am running DaVinci Resolve which is graphic card heavy.
