Hi,
Getting this error after trying to create unibeast installer. "couldn't create USB installer" see image below
I have tried following all the troubleshooting suggestions (the mojave installer was downloaded using the macOS Mojave Patcher tool as i am running snow leopard on an older mac and cannot run Git )

  1. UniBeast version 9.2.0
  2. UniBeast choices Mojave, UEFI, no graphics
  3. USB partition scheme, GPT or MBR and size of the destination partition. GUID and 18GB size partition on a 64GB drive
  4. System specifics where UniBeast was run including hardware configuration and macOS version. 10.6.8 on a Hackintosh Macmini5,1 Processor Intel Core i3 with GeForce 8400 GS
  5. Error message see attached picture
  6. Contents of UniBeast.log see attached
  7. Contents of install.log see attached im not finding /var/log in the console but have other log

think I may have figured it out...did not notice that unibeast needs a newer mac than mine to make the USB, ill try on another machine....

It was the age of my machine or OS... apparently the ivy bridge machine and or 10.6.8 will not make the unibeast USB so used a newer Imac running El Cap
