RX 560
MacBook Pro, Mac mini
Mobile Phone
Sadly the MB has died of old age. After 7+ years it is now time to move on.
To Coffee Lake that is with an i5-8400 and 6 cores...
I will make a new install post for 14.2 in the appropriated place.

GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 with I5-2500k OC on 4.6 GHz and 16 GB memory
  1. Clone boot drive with Carbon Copy Cloner 5.1.5
  2. Update Clover Configurator to version
  3. Mount EFI from boot drive and clone drive.
  4. Copie EFI on boot drive to EFI on clone drive.
  5. Restart and make sure your clone is bootable and working.
  6. Download the latest revision of Clover v2.4k_r4741
  7. Update Clover on the clone drive.
  8. Restart and make sure your clone is bootable and working.
  9. Download the latest revision of the kexts in the list below and put them in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other of the clone drive
  10. Restart and make sure your clone is bootable and working.
  11. Download the Mojave 10.14.1 standalone installer.
  12. Uncouple all drives except the clone drive.
  13. Update to Mojave 10.14.1 on the clone drive.
  14. Everything went smooth and even the restarts went automagically.
  15. Make sure everything works fine on the clone drive.
  16. When everything is working fine repeat the steps 7. to 16. with the boot drive instead of the clone drive.
I use F12 Bios because of my Apple Cinema Display (23" DVI) can't handle the UEFI bios signal.
So all my needed drivers are in EFI/CLOVER/drivers64.
For some reason I also have to put ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi in EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI otherwise it won't boot.

Onboard USB 3 is not supported. I use an Innateck USB 3.0 PCIe card this works o.o.b.

For Bluetooth, I use an Asus BT-400 USB dongle.
For it to work after a restart put BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext in L/E

Kexts in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other
VirtualSMC.kext for booting Mac OS, replaces FakeSMC.kext.
WhateverGreen.kext for RX 560, but I'm not sure about it yet.
Lilu.kext for multiple things.
RealtekRTL8111.kext for onboard LAN.
AppleALC.kext for onboard sound.
AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext for change orange external drives to grey internal drives.
NoVPAJpeg.kext for Quicklook JPEG preview problem.

Sleep has never work for me and I believe this never will work.

I don't use WiFi.

I'm still finetuning so I will update this post.
