- Find* [Hex]: 83FB0F0F 838F0400 00
- Replace* [Hex] : 83FB0F90 90909090 90
- Comment: USB Port limit patch 10.14.1
- MatchOS: 10.14.1&2
Gosh, 10.14.1 got me a hard time! It installed OK but then, it just got stuck with no error message, with no crash or whatsoever, just not willing to start the GUI.
I even restored my previous 10.14 conf. from Time Machine backup 3 times, before I thought about changing the SMBIOS Product Model from iMac 17,1 to iMac 18,3 in the Clover options at boot time. Stupid me!
Then at last, it accepted starting, but with an intolerable flicker of the display, which I had already noticed with iMac 18,3 on Mojave.
Finally, after multiple trials, it turned out iMac 14,2 stopped the flicker for me.

Can you send them to kexts please?
I'm hoping someone can affirm or deny that APFS will be mandatory from this point forward. I've also discovered that if I'm booted to the HFS+ version, and go into Update in SysPref, the system says I'm up to date at 10.14, and that there are no updates available... but if I clone and then convert to APFS, now the system is willing to download the update... which again seems to say the HFS+ ship has sailed. I'm about to try that download and install method next but still looking for some more experienced wisdom on all this.
I picked up a used rx 570 8gb for $120. Or you can get a rx 560 4gb for about $70 on ebay.
