    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 😟, but we got a nice update from macOS in the name of Mojave (10.14) 😀 (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!

     

    The new macOS Mojave has full of features!

    • Brightness Control issue is resolved now. Thanks! Edit: Brightness Control has stopped working after I am trying run debug tool but karabiner-element is still running where sound control button are fine too. Edit2: I tried reboot laptop but Brightness Control do still not works. Sound control button is fine. I changed to apple_display_brightness_XXXXXX from display_brightness_XXXXXX but nothing changes. They freeze system for few seconds when i spammed press F11 and F12 button. Let's see what I do with DW1707 later because it said yes on Mojave with patch. I don't realize it don't have AC. Let's better focus debug tool for HDMI now. I am having issue with debug tool after I entered password:   MacBook-Pro:~ jones$ /Users/jones/Desktop/install_tools.sh Installing debug report generator.... Checking your internet connection.... Internet connectivity is all good to go. Downloading the latest version from GitHub...

    • Wifi DW1707 - See here, not recommended, limited support. Better option is DW1560 HDMI - should work OOB, post debug file with HDMI connected, F8 is a Windows function, won't work in OSX. VGA - not supported Brightness Control - See post install here as suggested in the linked guide
    • Great, thanks for confirming the fix continues to work with Mojave.
    • Your fix works great! 👏   I didn't mean to offend stating the obvious. Just tried to let you know exactly what I did and the results to see if it could contribute (Wasn't much, but it helped in my learning process). Thanks thanks thanks and thanks again Jake Lo for your help and patience. I've read and absorbed so much info that end up confused and messing a very simply and well explained guide.  
    • That is exactly what it is as already explained here Yes, I'm aware of how to generate SMBIOS. Try this config, I think Mojave require full path to the kext  config.plist.zip
    • It didn't work. I tried with MBA 5,2 smbios and it works fine. What would you recommend? From my really basic understanding it looks like a whitelist problem. Should I try to edit the kext? or can it be managed from clover.  Again thanks a lot for your time! Edit: To modify the Smbios I just opened the config file with clover configurator and picked the smbios from the there, nothing fancy.
