Hi guys,

Just a quick update on my hackintosh. I spend the last two days trying to install Mojave but I was stuck even before loading the installer.

If you want to use this board, you need to use the 1.20 bios.

I did a downgrade and now everything is working, wifi, bluetooth (I changed the wifi card in the m.2 slot) , sound and sleep/restart.

I will try to do a guide in the next few days.

Quick fix from pupin if you have another bios (1.29 or 1.30)

For all guys with problems on the new Asrock BIOSes (for this board, and for other Asrock boards), add in Clover's config.plist,
under ACPI\DSDT\Patches the following patch (I already posted my patch in the General Z390 thread):
Code:
        <dict>
          <key>Comment</key>
          <string>Fix AsRock Z390 BIOS DSDT Device(RTC) bug</string>
          <key>Disabled</key>
          <false/>
          <key>Find</key>
          <data>
          oAqTU1RBUwE=
          </data>
          <key>Replace</key>
          <data>
          oAqRCv8L//8=
          </data>
        </dict>

The problem his an uninitialized variable in Device(RTC) that makes OSX DSDT parser freak out.
I am quite sure AsRock will eventually fix this, but for now, it is a usable solution.
Regards,
Ben

Thanks for posting this, is the thunderbolt controller working?

What's the reason behind downgrading the BIOS?

Not yet but I didn't look for it. I will give it a try.

With 1.29, you will get stuck with an NVRAM problem while loading the installer. As sound as I downgrade the bios to 1.20, everything worked.

v1.30 released, still not fixed.

I have reports from many Asrock boards it works, if you want me to see if it should work on your board, send me your DSDT.aml.
Or perhaps you didn't put it at the right place.

Hey guys! Thanks for the patch pupin!

I do have a Asrock z390 phantom gaming itx too and I was wondering what works for you.

Did you manage to make any of this work:
- USB3 at full speed (for me it's working but only at 480Mb/sec)
- Integrated bluetooth
- Thunderbolt port

- USB3 works for me at full speed. Check ioreg to see if your USB ports are getting injected as USB 2 -- even with the associated AppleUSBXHCI kext patches in Clover (the updated one for 10.14.1), I faced this issue with 10.14.1 and USBInjectAll, but not 10.14.0 and below. I used USBInjectAll kernel arguments to inject the correct ports in this situation.
- Before I replaced the stock card, integrated bluetooth was recognized but didn't actually work for me (devices would not be visible & vice-versa).
- Thunderbolt/USB-C port charged my cell phone, but I don't have any other devices to test with. I picked up a USB-C to USB adapter and will be giving it a shot soon.
