Had a much better experience updating my desktop than my laptop!

On my desktop (Dell Inspiron 3670), I updated to Clover 4910 via Clover Configurator after making a copy of my EFI folder. Before rebooting, I checked the drivers64UEFI folder on my EFI partition, and noticed it had removed Aptiomemoryfix-64.efi and had added Audiodxe.efi. Thinking I needed aptiomemoryfix-64, I copied it back in from my backup EFI folder. I removed Audiodxe.efi. Rebooted and was able to boot into macOS just fine.

Next up, kexts. Via Clover Configurator, I downloaded the latest Lilu, WhateverGreen and AppleALC. I moved them from the OTHER folder to my desktop and installed with Kextbeast. Rebooted. Holding my breath, I was happy to see my macOS come right back up with new kexts.

Finally, macOS update. From system preferences, I initiated the update. Download complete, reboot. First Clover boot screen I chose the Preboot option. After a bit, it rebooted and chose the Install macOS option. Less than 15 minutes later, I was in macOS, no other reboots. 10.14.4 complete.

So, regarding Clover removing aptiomemoryfix-64...do I need that or has it become unnecessary? And, the addition of Audiodxe? It was not there before...do I need it now?

Desktops seem so much easier to update than laptops! Not sure if I'll ever get my laptop (Dell Inspiron 7559 updated!).

I'm having trouble every time I reboot or shutdown my Hack after update. Gettin' "system posted in safe mode" BIOS message

Same here. Solved by replacing AppleRTC.kext from 10.14.3

Easiest and fastest update yet. Updated Clover to r4910 via Clover Configurator. Already had latest Lilu & Whatevergreen.

From hitting the Restart Now button after the auto download, there was just 1 more reboot after that one and I was logged in and running after only 4.5 minutes from that initial reboot. Wow.

Everything is working, including sound after sleep, that I saw some people were having trouble with.

As I have a custom SSDT (@RehabMan's method and USBInjectAll.kext), all my USB ports work as before.

Happy bunny here.

Thanks for the reply, but you can pass me the links from where to download
In the latest version of CloverConfigurator, go to the "Kext Installer" tab, 2nd to the bottom in the list on the left-hand edge of the app's main screen.

This video processing display right above ^ -I've never found it via System Info, etc. Is it a special app?
I never get the "Hardware Accelerated" logo on my "About" page, though everything seems to work.
BTW, love the logo!

Hi, the video processing display is a third party app called VideoProc. The free version will let you assess your decoding ability under settings. Like you, I was looking for an indication of whether or not the acceleration was working. This seemed to be the easy way to do it. Just remember to hit the refresh arrow after you make any system changes.

For the logo I had to recompile assets.car in order to put in a custom picture. There are some tutorials floating around if you can be bothered. It is much more of a pain in the ass than it used to be.

Updated to 10.14.4 using combo update.
Have a GA-Z97N motherboard with ALC892 audio.
No audio on wake from sleep after updating to 10.14.4.
Downloaded and installed most recent AppleALC kext (1.3.6) used Kextbeast to install updated kext, restarted and then cleared cache using Kext Utility.
Followed An iDiot's Guide To Lilu and its Plug-ins
Audio now working after sleep.

Started on my 10.14.3 experimental SSD. First, updated all relevant kexts via Clover Configurator. Reboot. Updated Clover booter itself. Reboot. Downloaded combo updater(bit slow), then ran the updater. It rebooted three times, I had to babysit the update otherwise it would boot from the wrong boot partition(I have several). Took 20 minutes or so. Geekbench is fine. Getting ready to upgrade my main 10.13.1 system to 10.14.4. Will do more testing first.
Clover Configurator is getting better and better, btw.
