So I got a graphic issue (like display flickering or something? and laggy when using photoshop) when using dark theme on Mojave, it was fine when I disabled it with
Code:
defaults write -g NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool yes
so I got to have pre-Mojave dark theme.
So is this mojave's issue or is this my own issue? not gonna do problem reporting yet since I'm just asking about the root of problem first (whether it's bug or just my own problem).

@RehabMan once your thread/readme about MacOS Mojave is done, feel free to remove this thread, edit or do whatever you want/have planned to with it.

OK, thanks.

I plan to do a lot of updating as I move guides/FAQ over. More extensive use of Lilu and its plugins changes a lot of recommendations and specific procedures even though we are still really doing the same thing.

Will work on it as time allows... pretty busy all over the place lately (WhateverGreen, Clover, here, my own guides, new hardware begging me to work on it, house remodel, etc).

Hello Guys,



I have a Skylake i5-6600k with an asus z170-a, and with Mojave I faced most problems than ever. I cannot even boot now, and Clover is slow, even the transition from apple logo to the FileVault password is slow which is a first for my build. I have tried your config.plist, whith some changes for my system, but nothing. I attach a picture of my boot, at the time that it stops.

you have broken your config.plist by adding the port limit patch wrong, also you have FakeSMC and VirtualSMC.kext in clover/kexts/other

best to grab a fresh config.plist from the guide and then follow the guide as is:

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
