    Today Apple released macOS 10.14.2, a major software update to macOS Mojave. Update any supported system using the built-in Software Update functionality through the System Preferences pane or by using the standalone installer available from Apple.com.
    What we know about 10.14.2 so far...
    • macOS Build 18C49
    • Updated Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD graphics drivers
      • NVIDIA Alternate Graphics Drivers have NOT been updated for macOS Mojave yet. Users of NVIDIA Maxwell or Pascal graphics cards should stay on macOS High Sierra for now.
    • Updated audio drivers- established users of Mojave with AppleALC or VoodooHDA should not need to update.
    • Install macOS Mojave App has been updated - If you downloaded macOS Mojave from the App Store prior to today, and you want to have the latest version on your backup installer USB, simply log into the Mac App Store and click Download. The updated Install macOS Mojave App can be found in the Applications folder.
    Testing is now underway- this post will be updated. Good luck, and let us know how it goes! Report your results here.

    Pre Update Notes:
    - This update may break some of your Mojave functions, like audio. Make sure you backup first.:thumbup:

    - There are NO Nvidia Web drivers. So, this update is for non Nvidia graphics card users.

    - Make sure you use the latest versions of the Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext. They will be in the Downloads > Kexts area. AppleALC.kext is located here.



    Please post help requests in the Mojave Desktop Support Forum section (not in this thread).



    Here's the step by step way to update:
    :ch: Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
    :ch: Update to the latest Clover: Downloads > Clover Builds.
    :ch: Update your apfs.efi according to tonymacx86's guide How to Update + Current and Past apfs.efi Downloads; (May substitute ApfsDriverLoader.efi)
    :ch: Check to make sure your config.plist USB patch is:
    Code:
    <key>Comment</key>
                    <string>USB 10.14 by PMHeart,FredWst</string>
                    <key>Disabled</key>
                    <false/>
                    <key>Find</key>
                    <data>
                    g/sPD4MDBQAA
                    </data>
                    <key>InfoPlistPatch</key>
                    <false/>
                    <key>MatchOS</key>
                    <string>10.14</string>
                    <key>Name</key>
                    <string>com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCI</string>
                    <key>Replace</key>
                    <data>
                    g/sPkJCQkJCQ
                    </data>
    or if you use PlistEdit Pro:
    Find: 83FB0F0F 838F0400 00
    Replace: 83FB0F90 90909090 90​
    :ch: Download the Mojave 10.14.2 Update or Combo Update in Post #1 or the update from Apple's Mac App Store and run it - the updater will reboot upon completion.
    Note: Update will reboot twice. So, sit back and relax.
    :ch: Done! So far, easiest updated ever! :thumbup:

    macOS 10.14.2 up and running. No issues with the update. System restarts itself twice.

    User with Intel 9th gen CPUs still need to spoof 8th ben IGPU ig-platform-id.

    Oh goody, will test it out on my Clone drive soon (had surgery and it's still painful to sit on the Hackintosh for now), before updating my main Hackintosh drive. Having a clone internal SSD ready has been a lifesaver for me and my video editing work. I just reboot to that installation, experiment the new updates, then if all good, update my main working drive.
