    What happened at Apple WWDC 18? macOS Mojave unveiled

    We were all excited for Apple WWDC 2018 for some updates on mac OS, and also expecting some hardware announcements along to get improved support for latest CPU and GPU hardware. Unfortunately there were no hardware announcements¬†ūüėü, but we got a nice update from macOS¬†in the name of¬†Mojave (10.14)¬†ūüėĬ†(even though its expected every year, but this year they introduced many new user oriented features which are really useful in our day to day activities). It is coming this fall!

    • @ecornista I am a newbie too like you and actually, i did successful Mac Mojave 10.14.5 following the instruction on the¬†https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-vostro-xps-clover-guide/ Mojave works properly on 7480.¬† ¬†
    • Hi, s Has anyone use this chaps EFI? ¬† https://github.com/ameeno/Dell-E7440-Hackintosh/ ¬† I had pretty good success this time, with mojave.... apart from the screen brightness Fn + <key> were wrong, i.e. not the up / down... but instead F2 and PrntScrn I think. ¬† Also, I found the 2 finger, right click (for context) very poor, worse than libinput in linux. ¬† I'm still a relative newb when it comes to kexts etc. so if there is a fix, please make it easy for me ¬† thanks ¬† Neil
    • Missing iOReg file, run this, save, compress and attach it
    • Kabylake requires a minimum of Sierra 10.12.6 to run See sources here ¬† If you want El Capitan, you might succeed by faking the CPU as Skylake, but will need a minimum of 10.11.4.
    • I was able to install macOS Mojave 10.14.5 on Dell 3468¬† but facing 2 problems regarding Display¬† 1. random display turn off and sleep problem 2. No brightness slider/control in System Preference /Display Clover and Origin Files Attached¬† CLOVER.zip
    • Hi OSXLATITUDE, ¬† Names Eric and first time building Hackintosh here. Just recently picked up this Dell 7480 from a friend and¬†I'm real excited and surprised on how far i got with the Hackintosh project. ¬† The current laptop specs I have here are ¬† Dell 7480 CPU: Core i5 7300U @2.60GHz Motherboard: Dell Inc u3E1 Graphics: Intel HD 620 (1920x1080) RAM: 8GB SSD: 250GB SK Hynix SC311 ¬† The guide i used to create the the USB OS X EL CAPITAN installer (¬† ¬†)¬† ¬† I was able to follow this thread with no issues until I reach step 2. Install OS X El Capitan/Sierra. I was able to open the Disk Utility and erase/format the SSD with no problem, however, I did not have the option to install the OS X El Capitan. Instead it showed that the OS was already installed and required me to reboot. I tried digging around before posting and I was not able to find any information. Changed up settings on the config.plist and hoping it would make and difference.¬†Please see screen shot below.¬† I also uploaded my CLOVER. ¬† Any help would be greatly appreciated! ¬† Thanks, Eric CLOVER.rar
    • Still not working unfortunately. I have been doing more reading and it seems like it should work. I even tried¬†ig-platform-id = 00003b19 (0x193b0000) which shows to have a DP and HDMI port but that didn't work either. I'll keep playing with it.I can't find any other configs where folks are using WEG Device Properties to get dual monitor. They seem to be using the older Inject Intel and platform-id in the Graphics section.
