How to install MacOS Mojave beta on Hackintosh

For now there are no way to install clean build of MacOS Mojave if you are not under beta developer Apple program but we have a chance to switch default update Chanel to developer version.

All you need is a MacOS Developer Beta Access Utility attached this post and updated latest Clover EFI build with all needed for you system kexts placed on Other directory.

For example I use ASUS K541UV based Hackintosh to install Mac OS Mojave 10.14 over pre installed Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.

Run package file from attached dmg and wait until execution ends. Then in opened AppStore window thats should be show MacOS Mojave download section press download button and wait for load distro are done.

The simplest way is plain install from Application thats should be run after download complite and strongest way is a creating bootable USB drive and install from it with reboot. So, if you just wont test the system you have to do plain install.

After process are done when you computer reboot first time you have to chose Intsaller option from Clover menu and with next reboot you have to choose Firevault boot option thats synonym of boot MacOS option because it need less button presses ;)

Thats all.

RevolveR CMS v.1.2.2: AMP and Turbo pages

With some unwillingness and some difficulties I was integrate in RevolveR CMS support of Accelerated Mobile Pages without adding one more template alignment! Now core optimized to render two site versions without any switching simple!

So. For now I can not offer you a lot of skins because I have more priority task but if you'd like to use RevolveR Core template - you have to know that it's supports AMP as well. There are no styles and animations for now - it's just first test release that past validation and we need to wait for search engine index to look at result. Now link to mobile pages are visible from beside of logotype.

Next good news is the Turbo Pages support in RSS channel. This technology allow mobile visitors to view accelerated pages as well as specially optimized pages.

No settings define needed because all works automatically like a charm.

In next releases I should update mobile pages view for AMP and rework some integrated in core features thats should convert some contents like images to AMP compatible tags. There are nothin difficult.

And for now internal SEO stats engine updated(improved show visits from search engines).

RevolveR CMS v.1.2.1 :: User ban options

Today I have a big problems with unknown symbols in database because all RevolveR CMS filters are works fine. Strange anonymous comment was break header() PHP instruction.

I found this symbols in left sidebar where latest comments are shown. There are an hidden error in string where comment is showed. Four hours we find this bug and after I del this comment PHP header steel works again. This error become after I install Mac OS Mojave beta. Seems it's beta version Safari bug.

So, this update with numbers 1.2.1 includes only user ban option. Code available on GitHub.

Mac OS Mojave :: beta installation on hackintosh

Fortunately Mac OS Mojave beta installed on my hackintosh. Some specific for hackintosh kexts steel useless and cause kernel panic. It's very bad because my trackpad ELAN 1200 won't work with older version VoodooI2C.kext. All other hardware was launch perfectly.

I got installer from AppStore directly and have no problems with update. Install process very long at second stage after reboot and some partitions that's we can see in Clover are broken but system boots normal and no any specific patches needed.

First, catches the eye is new dark theme and beautiful wallpaper on login screen and new applications. Graphics work good but sometimes launchpad does glitches with my intel HD620(lol, i3 can do the things). Sometimes notification about applications like Photoshop not optimized for Mac and needs update callus eyes. Also Safari have some bugs with cache.

So. For now the system so dump and not any reason to use 10.14 Mojave beta for work. I have to return on High Sierra.

USB WIFI for Mac OS :: TP-LINK TP-WL823N

A primary thing you have to keep in mind when you change the hardware for hackintosh is WIFI and ethernet adapters comparability with Mac OS. Usually many of related hardware is incompatible and need to be replaced. Some platforms may have a whitelist and you can't replace WIFI without BIOS modification. Some replacements need to do difficult DSDT patches.

For example, I want to talk you about TP-LINK TP-WL-823N USB WIFI adapter thats have official Mac OS software available for download from official web-site and perfectly working on Mac OS 10.13.5.

I buy this dongle for less than 10$ and just install package with hardware WIFI kexts and it works! You can find other supported WIFI dongles WL series with kexts for Mac OS in a computer shop or digital markets.

For test I use my hackintosh based on ASUS K541UV with installed Mac OS High Sierra.
