    If you have the High Sierra patcher you can install HS over it it should over write the patches just don't apply the post install patches

    Hi, I had asked what I think is the same question after I migrated my SSD contents to a new machine.

    (my question:)

    With deep thanks to dosdude1 and others, I was able to keep my early-2008 MacBook Pro running through High Sierra. I decided that 10 years was enough, and jumped ship to a new MBP, migrating successfully using the Time Machine from the old unit.

    All is well, except I occasionally get Patch Updater popping up to say that "New patch updates are available for this model. (Night Shift Patch)", which I clearly don't need anymore. How do I stop this? Is there a way to remove Night Shift Patch so it isn't checked? Or can I just uninstall/delete Patch Updater from Applications/Utilities? (it's only for the "unsupported Macs" feature, right?)

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    (answer:)

    Yep remove the Patch Updater app from Applications/ Utilities, and also remove the com.dosdude1.Patchupdater.plist from /Library/LaunchAgents. Restart your Mac and see if you keep getting prompted.

    Here is a link to the answer (I hope this is helpful):

    You're probably going to have to do a clean install and migrate during the install. That's what I would do and have . . .

    Thanks!

    the macbook pro boot's without a problem but got a message that SIP is enabled. Might be from the agent which is running.
    Found a script somewhere in here from dos1dude. It's for the high sierra patcher but I could use it anyway. Just deleted the sierra patcher manually in utilties folder.
    After rebooting there was no SIP message anymore. :)


    #!/bin/sh
    sudo rm -R /Library/Extensions/SIPManager.kext
    sudo rm -R /Library/Extensions/LegacyUSBInjector.kext
    sudo rm /Library/LaunchAgents/com.dosdude1.PatchUpdater.plist
    sudo rm /Library/LaunchAgents/com.dd1.SIPLD.plist
    sudo rm /usr/local/sbin/SIPLD
    sudo rm -R "/Applications/Utilities/Patch Updater.app"
    sudo rm -R "/Library/Application Support/High Sierra Patcher"
    sudo kextcache -system-caches
    sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
    echo "\n\nAll High Sierra Patcher components have been removed. Please reboot your machine.\n\n"

    Thanks a lot to dos1dude! It greatly extended the life of my MBP 15 2009. I had to move on to a faster machine.
    But I'm going to install High Sierra and give it someone who can use it for a couple years, it's still in great condition after 10 years! Even the battery :)
