Upgraded from 13.6 to Mojave via App store.

Came across few problems. The worst one is not 'looking' great :/

Some things have been bigger unwantedly (the most annoying one is the profile pic of welcome page)
Everything looks WEIRD (blurry and eye-irritating!) including both visual elements and TEXT.

Both above problems convenient me that there's something wrong with my graphic however the Display section show the resolution correctly (1920*1080)

Anyone here who upgraded to Mojave let me know please if the welcome page has been larger or not.

I have Lenovo G570 which is a Sandy Bridge Core i5 CPU with Intel HD3000 for this laptop I always used the MacbookPro 8.1 SMBIOS. what would be the better option for a direct update because I am not able to download from Appstore(Hardware not supported).

No support in Mojave for HD3000.

I will be doing some updates/review to all existing guides.

Any guess on when you'll have them ready? Just wondering as switching the configuration to Lilu + Whatevergreen for the framebuffer for my hdmi out is kicking my butt and I need to do some more reading to understand it better. Your guides have always been some of the best for this.

You can already read about WhateverGreen:

And if you look at my guide plists, you'll see examples:

I've successfully installed Mojave. Can I use hotpatch for post installation?
