With latest Lilu and WhatEvergreen, I found that Inject Intel and ig-platform-id are not longer necessary for my build (RX580 + iGPU). You can try if you want to remove some useless entries on Clover.

I really like your build (the only thing that jars a bit is the brown Noctua fan) :)

Confirm, works.

Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your EFI folder - I have the exact same setup as you have with the BCM94360CS2 and everything works flawlessly!
One thing that tricked me up was the fact that I downloaded your EFI folder prior to you updating it and removing the BT kexts from /Other - my keyboard didn't work during boot and sleep also didn't work. After cleaning up the /Other folder for kexts everything is working like it did on 10.13.6!

Thank you again!

You are welcome. I will keep this thread updated.

Z370N WIFI | i3 8100 | HD 630 - my config - i used ur efi folder for mojave & cant load new system at all
here ss

First of all, my EFI configured for eGPU. Then notice, that there are no more Kexts in Other folder. And as I remember, there are some extra steps to make i3 work. My config is not for you.

You should make a new thread.

the BIOS file attached to your first post - is that a settings file to load BIOS settings?
It's BIOS and settings. Hold END while booting.

Having used it some more I am having issues with sleep. I can manually sleep and wake, but it never enters sleep automatically as it did with High Sierra. Also if I manually sleep and let it sit overnight when I come back the machine is unresponsive and the fans are at 100%
Did you make additional changes to make sleep work consistently?

I didn’t have this issue. Everything seams to work ok. But I had an issue with long sleep in HS, computer just woke up. I have not tested it yet with Mojave. Will try it tonight.

Show me your pmset -g from Terminal.

I haven't changed anything between HS and the upgrade, but maybe something is out of whack after the upgrade.
here is the pmset -g log

Hm...Similar to my config. I also set autopoweroff=0. Try another Darkwake options.

I noticed that there is a new option in Mojave — proximitywake. Need to figure out what is that for. Here is a discussion on Reddit.

Tried darkwake=2 and now it sleeps as per the energy settings as in HS. I’ll leave it overnight night and check back.

Great! With darkwake=2 mine slept for 5h without a problem too.
