Thanks! However, MultiBeast prompts me to save a new config.plist. How do I apply the patch to the current file?These patches replace the USB patches in your /EFI/.../config.plist file. If you've never modified your config.plist, then it would be confusing at first. The current MultiBeast for Mojave has a port limit patch for the config.plist (Drivers > USB > Remove XHCI USB Port Limit), but it is for 10.14.4. The next update to Mojave will have the 10.14.5 patch.
Thus, you'll have to replace the 10.14.5 Port Limit patches in config.plist with Post #1's Port Limit patches with TextEdit or use Xcode and the patches listed in Post #4.
Update: I've applied this on 10.14.3 via Clover Configurator, but I think the ports are still operating at USB 2 speeds despite being listed as USB 3 in System Information
