Graphical glitches after patching Monterey

So I upgraded my unsupported Macbook Pro to Monterey with the Mr. Macintosh Installer and everything worked as usual except that I get some graphical glitches as seen in the pictures.

I did the same with my mid 2012 13inch macbook and no glitches at all.

Any fixes?

Are you able to use the Mid 2012 as a daily driver?! If so I suggest it. Sorry to sound so brutal but it's the truth. Also, knowing Apple, they probably did something to make it incompatible even with a patcher. :D


Best to jump to the Mr Macintosh site to see if they can help you. This is clearly a video driver issue. We can't offer you any help unless you see this issue within the proper OS release for this system.

While I would love for Apple to offer support for the older systems there are limits from a hardware perspective.

It's because your laptop isn't meant to 'support' an OS 12 years later.

People think forcing Os's on a laptop is a good idea - While yes it saves money, just because you can install it doesn't mean it's going to work efficiently. You're practically Hackintoshing your laptop therefore there's something that's bound to go wrong. In this case, MacOS Monterey requires a certain PPI (pixel per inch) / screen resolution to run perfectly. If I remember correctly, the 2010 to 2013 Unibody Pros has a 720p screen which is nowhere near the minimum requirement for Monterey. I believe it's something along the lines of 1080p or even 4K now. Plus, it probably can't find the right display drivers to run on your laptop as well which can cause that weird ghosting look you have as it cant run as the displays native FPS. Either downgrade to the last MacOS version that you had success with and it ran like butter or just get a new Macbook. I think Apple is supporting BigSur security patches till' 2025 so you should be good.

Thanks. I will try downgrading it then :)

Since the mid 2012 worked fine for me I wanted to try it with the 2010 one as well but yeah..^^


@bezzzles & @v3l3n0 - Sadly the highest supported OS in this series is macOS High Sierra (10.13.x)


@danj No, you can use a patcher to get easily to Mojave.


@bezzzles - You missed the point, What Apple 'supports' is the key issue. Not what I or you can force onto the system. Just because you can install it doesn't mean it will work without an issue.


@danj You've missed my point completley - Patchers from people like DosDude1 are meant to be run on systems like these. They're excellent for a while but sooner or later the hardware will just become stupidly out of date.
