This might be of interest to all:
... There are EFI firmware updates apparently for all Mojave-capable Mac models.

Among the major apps to be replaced are:

  • App Store, remaining at version 3.0, now build 1003.3.
  • Automator, 2.9 build 444.42.
  • Books, 1.19 build 1645.
  • Calculator, 10.14 build 123.
  • Calendar, 11.0 build 2245.5.2.
  • Contacts, 12.0 build 1894.
  • FaceTime, 5.0 build 3080.
  • iTunes, which is accompanied by a second update to address potential issues in syncing iOS devices with the iTunes app, version 12.9.5.5.
  • Mail, 12.4 build 3445.104.11.
  • Maps, 2.1 build 2132.25.12.18.12.
  • Messages, 12.0 build 5500.
  • News, which has some improvements for the News+ service where it’s available, version 4.3.
  • Photos, 4.0 build 3451.7.120.
  • Preview, 10.1 build 944.6.16.1.
  • Safari, which fixes many WebKit bugs and changes to version 12.1.1 build 14607.2.6.1.1.
  • VoiceMemos, 2.0.
  • Activity Monitor, 10.14.
  • Console, 1.1 build 3.0.17.
  • Disk Utility, 18.0 build 1667.3.
  • Terminal, 2.9.5 build 421.2.
In the system folders, the greatest volume of replacement files is in the /System/Library folder, which accounts for almost 5 GB of the installed update.

  • /bin and /sbin have many replacement tools.
  • Marzipan support is extensively updated.
  • Automator actions are largely replaced.
  • Most of the tools and components in CoreServices are replaced, although most don’t appear to be new versions as such.
  • All Apple kernel extensions appear to be replaced.
  • AppleKextExcludeList.kext gains a new Property List, ExceptionsLists.plist, as part of the changes in KEXT security.
  • Fonts updated include Apple Color Emoji and Apple Symbols.
  • Most public and private frameworks are replaced.
  • Much of the contents of the folders within /usr are replaced, including many of the tools in /usr/bin and /usr/sbin.
APFS has been updated from version 945.250.134 in 10.14.4 to version 945.260.7, which is another small increment comparable in distance the last update, but includes new versions of all the file system’s command tools.

Yes, they work fine but you must either create an SSDT (prefered method) or apply the new patch.

Got the little purple lines on boot, but removed the -no_compat_check, and everything worked. In fact, one step forward, and one step back: VDA Decoder works, but I lost the drives hooked to my mobo internal 3.1 USB.

take away: internal usb 3.1 not working right.
Hey, dude! Ii think I have the same problem. Where do I find that no compat check option?

Successful update from 10.14.4 to 10.14.5 but as with Pastrychef

"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."

Upgrade from 10.14.4 to 10.14.5 by combo update without any change and issue.
2 reboot and, because of hiding partition on Clover, I have to to choose right boot on boot-loader.
Everything works well.
