What is the chance that UniBeast will support X299+Skylake-X eventually now that the SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 is out in the wild?

I know there is a great guide for installation of High Sierra on X299, but I would really love a UniBeast to get as much as possible to work out of the box before attempting this project.
A FakeCPUID is necessary for x299 using UniBeast. Modify your config plist to include one and UniBeast should work. Check out this post for details:

Thanks. I'm following that thread and I guess I was hoping that a more "plug and play" option might eventually be feasible, but I'm definitely not complaining over that guide! :)

I am using clover bootloader, but it’s too hard to install supported audio drivers withouth multibeast. Will I be still able to use clover bootloader once I installed multibeast (when it will be out fpr 10.13) for audio drivers?
You don’t need Multibeast to run ALC892. (have the same chip )


You can got sound with AppleALC and Lilu in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other for sure from this motherboard.Also no need for CodecCommander. Everything works from EFI

For assistance with Audio you should post in the Audio forum.

Installed and running on Asrock Fatal1ty Z370 Gaming ITX-ac / Core i3 8100, no sweat, even the Apple Thunderbolt Display lit up and working=) All pretty much "out of the box".
A couple of glitches here and there, some nasty flickering when browsing with Safari, VLC wouldn't play any video at all, only sound. Clueless as to why it'd happen.
Also no luck installing on an SSD, it just remains "invisible" to the system no matter what you do. Tried three different drives, to no effect.

Had to upgrade from a 99% vanilla Yosemite install. My SSD was dying and finally decided to upgraded to High Sierra.
Upgraded to (UEFI and Clover) from (MBR and Chimera.)

Only issue I had was with USB which was fixed with Clover ACPI USB patches. There is a learning curve with Clover bootloader, but it works so much better than Chimera. CloverACL worked perfectly for audio.

Only downside is my TimeMachine drive stopped working.
