    Just for posterity and for the good of this thread, if you have any kind of booting-related issue, like hanging on apple logo, no progress bar, or anything before the GUI loads, please please please try booting with Command-V and taking a picture of that instead. The verbose error is much more helpful than another picture of the same Apple Logo and progress bar which have already been posted hundreds of times. I never like being harsh or mean, and I don't mean it at all that way, but having the error already captured on the first post will streamline the debugging process for the dev's and the rest of us, who have straightforward access to the error.

    Oh good, we have a panic log... maybe I missed it if someone already had one from a Tesla GPU. This is probably a binpatch waiting to happen, while I don't know how to do them I do know that its probably just patching a check in GeForceTesla

    To all that are having so much trouble with the patcher on MacBook7,1... stop spamming dosdude1 with name mentions and asking him to fix it! I'm sure he is working on it. If you're really impatient, why not just apply the patches manually? I posted a full tutorial a few pages back and it does work.

    Sorry about this but can you just reiterate on all the steps needed to install and patch it please?

    No problem. I'm not writing this again though ;)

    Patch the installer
    1. Get a copy of the install app and open Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg
    2. Copy the folder Packages somewhere you can edit
    3. cd to the folder and pkgutil --expand OSInstall.mpkg Expanded
    4. Open the folder Expanded and open Distribution in a text editor
    5. Find the function installationCheck() and put return true; at the very beginning
    6. Remove the text installsOS=true from the same file
    7. pkgutil --flatten Expanded Patched.mpkg
    You will now have an install file "Patched.mpkg" that you can double-click and install to a HFS+ partition.

    Patch the installed system to boot
    1. On the partition, copy boot.efi from /usr/standalone/i386/ to /System/Library/CoreServices
    2. Open /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist in a text editor
    3. Make Kernel Flags as <string>-v -no_compat_check keepsyms=1</string>
    This will make the disk bootable, bypass the prohibitory symbol (\) and show symbols in kernel panic logs (If it panics, let it reboot and pick your High Sierra partition; it should automatically show the log in "your computer was restarted because of a problem" dialog once it boots.)

    Fix the kernel panic on Penryn systems
    Replace from High Sierra:
    /System/Library/UserEventPlugins/com.apple.telemetry.plugin

    Patch USB
    Replace from High Sierra:
    /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBHostFamily.kext

    Patch audio

    Replace from High Sierra:
    /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext

    Recognize the Tesla GPU

    Copy from High Sierra:
    NVDANV50HalTesla.kext
    NVDAResmanTesla.kext
    IONDRVSupport.kext
    IOGraphicsFamily.kext

    This allows changing the brightness and shows the correct display in About This Mac

    Enable the framebuffer

    Copy from High Sierra:
    GeForceTesla.kext
    GeForceGA.kext

    Partial acceleration.

    Enable full acceleration

    Copy from High Sierra
    GeForceTeslaGLDriver.bundle
    GeForceTeslaVADriver.bundle

    Right now, this causes a kernel panic on login. Edit: Hack-ish but functional workaround here.

    Fix kext permissions
    sudo chmod -R 755 /Volumes/Mojave/System/Library/Extensions
    sudo chown -R root /Volumes/Mojave/System/Library/Extensions

    Replacing "Mojave" with the name of your partition. This'll allow the system to automatically rebuild the prelinkedkernel when you boot from the Mojave volume (it'll reboot after doing so).


    That took longer to write than I expected, haha. Hope that helps. It's good to have a consolidated list of patches so far anyways, I've been meaning to make a post like this for a bit.

    Edit: Does someone want to link this on the wikipost or something? Maybe decrease the amount of redundant questions so we can focus on moving forward :)

    Edit 2: This is only for MacBook6,1 and MacBook7,1 systems.

    On a MP3,1, after selecting the Disk to install the OS onto, something crashes and the log opens and displays this message:
    [​IMG]
    Tried different versions of the 10.14 Installer app, and also installing onto internal and external drive, but always get this. I did replace one file on the USB Stick made with the patcher (was an SD card in an adapter actually), and the installer then did open but would just stall and stayed at 16 minutes remaining.

    Here is the log file (attached):

    Note this time has crashed cpu1 (the 2nd core) while on my previous panic was cpu0, anyway the same matter.

    I have seen also that AppleGraphicsControl.kext is invoked but replacing with HS one still KP on QE/CI desktop.
    Also tried with HS AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext still same KP.

    Anyway I'm still thinking IOAccelerator PrivateFrameworks could be responsible of KP, but using any IOAccelerator from HS or S stucks on verbose windowserver/loginwindow with messages like "too many corpses being created".


    edit:

    Have tried to replace just SecurityAgent.bundle in Security.framework's Machservices, and it still QE/CI desktop KP.

    Instead replacing it together with HS IOAccelerator or replacing totally Security.framework with HS one, stucks on verbose persisting crashing pids loginwindow/windowserver.

    Here's one with keepsyms=1, provides a little more info in the stacktrace.

    The "too many corpses being created" message just means that WindowServer/loginwindow keep crashing. This is probably because they can't link against the replaced framework because it's either missing a symbol they expect or a dependency (another framework has to be replaced). You can sometimes see what the problem is by running update_dyld_shared_cache in single-user mode because that links everything and it'll report missing symbol errors. (Kind of a hack, may be a better way to check.)

    Edit: also, just fyi, kext-dev-mode does nothing now. Disabling SIP is sufficient.
    --- Post Merged, Jul 10, 2018 ---
    Also, it seems like a similar situation as the Penryn (UserEventPlugins) crash, where the current process SecurityAgent is probably totally unconnected to the panic, but has anybody actually tested anything with that? Removing the SecurityAgent plugin altogether (from /S*/L*/F*/Security.framework) causes the system to hang on stage 2 (?) progress bar. I haven't tested anymore than that since it doesn't seem related. But it'd be silly if we were missing that all along!

    Running well on an old mechanical hard disk (hfs) and with a cheap fanless efi-less GT710 gpu. 150 watts at idle. Quite snappy too. Also runs with the original 8800GT but graphics are very slow, e.g. launchpad. Is it stable enough for audio? We'll see. Lots of thanks to all the people who have contributed.

    @ASentientBot I added your tutorial to the wiki post.

    I’m trying to install it on an internal APFS partition.

    Don't know why I didn't think of this earlier, but listing the dependencies for GeForceTeslaGLDriver.bundle shows some possible areas of focus:

    OpenGL.framework
    IOSurface.framework
    GPUSupport.framework

    OpenGL and GPUSupport sound promising.

    thats good as I tried with a usb external hard drive but as soon as I got in the desktop it crashed so I had High Sierra on another external hard drive and and installed on my internal hard drive if you have a Nvidia 9400 don't install the legacy graphic patch in the post install patches it doesn't work right

    Anyone having issue with videos not
    Playing with html 5 on Netflix or Prime? I have a mid 2011 Mac mini which does support html5 under High Sierra. I also tried to download silverlight but Netflix still says unsupported plug-in

    I might try on my iMac 8.1 installing on a external hard drive and not install the legacyusb injector patch during the post install and see if that works I got into the desktop on the external on my iMac 9.1 but only for a few seconds then it rebooted thats when I decide to try on my internal hard drive it works but a bit graphically glitchy also after I did the post install patches I did the force rebuild caches but I could not get past phase one of the boot process stuck on the Apple logo so I did another clean install this I left it unchecked and it booted faster

    Did anything change other than the drive? Format type? Patches installed? Version of patcher or macOS installer?

    Just to be clear, I'm looking to install Mojave on an older iMac late 2010, Internal SSD/APFS (it's not my primary) so all I need is the latest patcher from dosdude1 page 1? Been waiting for at least 2nd beta before giving it a go.

    Many thanks to ALL that have tirelessly worked on a patch for "Unsupported" macs.

    Download the latest patcher tool from here, download the Mojave installer from the patcher tools. Select your installer in the patcher, select a Mac OS Extended Journaled partition and then click Start. Boot from your patched installer partition, install Mojave on an APFS or Mac OS Extended Journaled partition. Boot from the patched installer again, open the post install app, select your model, click patch. Then reboot and you should have a patched Mojave installation. Enjoy!

    @dosdude1

    Thanks for your hard work. I've been following this thread since the beginning, and I'm looking forward to using this on my MacPro 2008 once it's out of Beta.

    I do have a video card question. Currently, I have an NVidia GTX 960 in my 2008. Will I just need to install the WebDrivers from NVidia after installing Mojave? Does Mojave include any built in support for the 900 series cards?

    I formatted my internal to apfs it works fine the only 2 post install patches I left unchecked were the legacy graphic and legacy wifi patches during install but make sure you choose your model for example 7.1 and you will see the ones that need to be installed checked when I installed on my internal I unplugged my external hard drive only left my keyboard and mouse plugged in just to be safe until I got up and running
