Just an update on my hack status-

After trying this build with High Sierra and failing, and realizing with the help of the forum members that my RAM was falsely labelled, sending it back and waiting three weeks for a new set, deciding to go with Mojave anyway and re-installing the whole thing I can officially say-

I have completed the build and it is unbelievable. @CaseySJ, I followed your guide word for word and everything runs great. Still some issues to figure out, but the main thing for me was the video driver (that works 100%) and the stability (which until now is amazing). Thanks for the guide and for your help and advice!

I believe that's the one I have -- can verify later this evening. It was downloaded from SourceForge.

Just updated BIOS, Loaded Optimized Defaults, applied BIOS settings, updated clover to version 4910 with IGPU enabled. Now everything went ok.

Will update now to 10.14.4

I’m having a problem with Airdrop: Always after sending a few pictures (one after the other) from my iPhone to my Hackintosh via Airdrop the screen goes black. I don’t know if anything else is still running or if it’s a complete crash. Fans keep spinning (but not spinning up like crazy, just normal) and no error to find in the system log. Sometimes it takes about 15 pictures until the screen goes black.
I had this with my old Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64 and now also with my new Asus ROG Strix Vega 64. While I was waiting for the new GPU I was using IGPU only, and during that time these issues were gone. On the first try the screen froze, too (but didn’t go black), then I added AirportBrcmFixup.kext and it worked fine. Now with the new Vega installed I still have AirportBrcmFixup.kext enabled, but the issue is back.
Can anybody try to confirm these issues? As I wrote, sometimes it takes 15 (or maybe even 20) pictures that I have to send (one after the other!) to my Hackintosh until it happens.

After the update, we no longer need "device-id = 0x3E9B" because the real device ID 0x3E98 is supported in 10.14.4.
So update went trough, and I'm now with 10.14.4 with IGPU enabled on BIOS. What do you mean with the above statement? Should I delete Device-id from devices properties in clover configurator (as picture attached)?

Yes, you can delete just that line (with macOS 10.14.4 and up).
