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.

Sleep was working for me under 10.14.3.
Not working now since this update.
But I also updated Clover to 4862 before installing the update.
I might troubleshoot with some other Clover versions

10.14.3 went fine, but 10.14.4 does not like something. At reboot it hangs. I am trying to figure out where exactly it hangs.
Update to latest Clover boot loader, download the update, install, and, when it hangs, restart and boot with Mac installer from Clover selection. It will install the update and will restart.

Had the exact same issue when I was trying out beta version on a test drive. Looks like the issue still persists with the final version.
Important. U must to have latest Clover boot-loader. Do not touch anything. Clover know wat to do.

After a good SuperDuper backup and updating the bootloader and all pertinent kexts the installation of the 10.14.4 update went without a hickup. The only mod was the usual port limit update (Thanks @ModMike,) My build is ASRock Fatal1ty Z7270, I7 7700K (Kaby Lake) with a Radeon RX 580. Everything working now, including iMessage and sound. Still breathing fire!

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 for Mojave as of this date/time. 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: Download the Mojave 10.14.4 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.
...
I had a different experience, and a few things didn't go well, but, since I heeded your primary statement [BACK UP!] all ended well.

I first tried updating to the latest Clover build (here) but it was bugging out and the install failed [>once], and I also [first] tried to upgrade directly from the [upgrade] preference panel--no joy. After a few mishaps, I just did a retroactive backup to a relatively recent snapshot and started over...using the older Unibeast USB I had used for 10.14.3.

I ended up going to the Clover site ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ ) and got the most recent stable build at that time (4910), and it installed successfully. Then, after restart, I used the link provided here to download the [basic] update (not the combo), and installed that without a hitch.

Upgrade didn't take long, and after a couple restarts, in which the correct drive/partition was automatically chosen through the update software process (unlike some in recent past upgrades), so I booted into 14.4 -- woohoo!

Everything seemed to work OK except the audio, which was expected, based upon experiences.
Using current MultiBeast, I then installed driver for audio (ALC and 3-port option), and my HDMI audio was all set for selection and setup using Audio MIDI Setup, after restart. Although I haven't checked EVERYTHING exhaustively, everything seemd to work well, and I have sleep/wake, etc., sound and graphics seem great etc.

Success! Thanks, to yall and the resources here at TonyMac ;)
Thumbs up doods!
