    • Initial support for AMD Radeon VII graphics cards
    • NVIDIA Alternate Graphics Drivers have NOT been updated for macOS Mojave. Users of NVIDIA Maxwell or Pascal graphics cards should stay on macOS High Sierra.

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 10.14.5 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; each time Clover picks the correct boot partition. So, sit back and relax.

:ch:There are new Mojave 10.14.5 Port Limit Removal Patches:

:ch: Done! So far, another easy update! :thumbup:

Too soon to tell. Maybe if another USB Port Limit patch is needed and Luli, WhateverGreen and AppleALC kexts are updated. BTW, the latest versions of the kexts are currently in the Downloads section.

During the update, I did see some random purple lines on the screen for a few seconds. I ignored it and the update continued fine.
