Is WhatEverGreen.kext required to use shikigva=32 and mac-id method?
Hello shuhung,If it is a bug, you can upgrade 10.14.5 beta2 AMD kexts and frameworks to 10.14.4 manually.
Backup below kexts and bundles

Then install above kexts and bundles from Mojave 10.14.5 beta 2 to Mojave 10.14.4 /System/Library/Extensions/
Backup below frameworks

Then copy and replace above frameworks from Mojave 10.14.5 beta 2 to Mojave 10.14.4 /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/
Work fine with Ryzen3 2200G + RX560 on 10.14.4 (recently not able upgrade to 10.14.5).
I installed above kexts from beta 2 18F108f combo update dmg by Pacifist, select then right click, install to default location.Tried the replacement mentioned with 10.14.5 beta 3 bundles and kexts (AMD drivers and AppleGVA frameworks):
I've tried different smbios along with board id and shiki flags, but always get red screen playback when dummy kext is installed (on safari netflix and itunes stream). Even swapped RX 570 from my haswell system to make sure it wasn't the graphics card. Sapphire works perfect in haswell system, and Power Color Pulse RX 570 that was in haswell system and worked perfectly displays the exact same behavior in sandybridge system. I've tried about every configuration possible and am convinced that it is processor related.With this settings hardware encoding and decoding is working with the RX580, but Netflix on Safaris doesn't work.
If I switch to Smbios imacpro1,1 everything is working as well as Netflix on safari.
Maybe I wasn't clear: I've replaced the AMD drivers and the AppleGVA and AppleGVACore frameworks with the 10.14.5 beta 3 ones. The frameworks replacement broke iTunes movies playing. Rebuilding dyld cache did nothing to help.
iTunes DRM movies working with beta 2 frameworks? By your profile, it is an RX570? Which SMBIOS are you using? I should try with the RX560 instead of the RX580 maybe...Not sure, I use beta 2 kexts and AppleGVA, because it has better transcoding performance than beta 3 on DaVinci, not tested beta 3 kexts/AppleGVA on 10.14.4.
