Inleiding

Keep your aging Mac from going obsolete by installing a patched version of macOS Mojave.

Please do note that if you install any Mojave update from Apple on your Mac you will "brick" your machine and you will be required to do erase your HDD/SSHD/SSD and start over. '''

  2. Once the patch tool has finished downloading, open it the .dmg file and wait for it to mount.
    • Once the patch tool has finished downloading, open it the .dmg file and wait for it to mount.

    • Inside the .dmg file, you will see an application named macOS Mojave Patcher. Double click it to open the application.

      • If you get the error message "macOS Mojave Patcher can't be opened because it's from an unidentified developer.",(2nd image) you can bypass this by right clicking the application and clicking open (3rd image).

    • Now, we will format the USB drive so it can be used by the patch tool.

    • Insert your 16 GB or higher USB drive into your Mac.

    • Open Disk Utility

      • Type "disk utility" into spotlight search and it should show up.

    • Erase the USB Drive and format it into macOS Extended (Journaled) format. The name of the drive does not matter.

    • If your Mac is not supported by this patch tool the patch tool will let you know that your machine does not support the Mojave patch. If that error is shown, it's the end of the road for your Mac. :-(

    • Go back to the patch tool window and go the the menu bar

    • These following steps are only necessary if you do not have a copy of the Mojave installer application.

    • Click "Tools" and then click "Download macOS Mojave" in the dropdown menu when it appears.

    • Click continue, and then select where you will save the installer.

      • I saved the installer to my desktop. Save it to wherever you want, just remember where you saved it.

    • Once the Mojave installer has finished downloading, select the Mojave icon in the macOS Mojave Patcher window.

    • Select your Mojave installer and click open

    • Now, select your volume by clicking the dropdown menu under the picture of a hard drive. You want to select the name of your USB drive.

      • My USB drive is not Macintosh HD. Do not select your Mac's hard drive/solid state drive/solid state hybrid drive. Instead, select your USB drive's name.

    • Click start operation. This may take a while to complete based on your drive speed.

    • Once this process has been completed, eject your USB drive and shut down your Mac.

    • If you are planning to do these next few steps on an iMac, you need a wired keyboard made by Apple. Ask your friend if you can borrow their Apple Wired Keyboard. Or, you can buy one for yourself at the link below.

    • Press the power button on your Mac and hold down the option key on the keyboard as soon as you either see the grey startup screen or the bong.

    • Keep holding the option key down until you see a screen that looks similar to the picture I attached.

    • Only perform steps 8 and 9 if you intend to do a clean install. Otherwise, you can simply skip these steps and install to your volume containg a previous version of OS X, and it'll do an in-place upgrade.

    • Open disk utility by going to utilities in the menu bar and clicking disk utility.

    • Click on your HDD/SSHD/SSD in the sidebar menu and click erase at the top of the window.

    • Select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and name your HDD/SSHD/SSD to whatever name you would like it to have.

    • Once you have successfully erased your drive, click the words "disk utility" in the menubar. Click close and Disk Utility should close.

    • Sit back and relax while Mojave is being installed onto your Mac.

    • Pro tip: If you would like to see what is going on behind the scenes of the installer window you can press Command + L to see the installer log.

    • Once the installer is done installing, shut down your computer.

    • Follow step 6 again to reboot onto your Mojave installer drive.

    • This time, instead of installing Mojave again we need to install the necessary patches for Mojave to run properly.

    • Click macOS Post Install in either the side menu or from the dropdown menu in utilities.

    Voeg opmerking toe

    • Select your type of Mac in the dropdown menu.

      • The patch tool automatically detects your Mac model and shows what you have here. If you are unsure at all which Mac you have, select the model listed here.

    • My suggestion is that you select ALL of the checkboxes that you can. It does not hurt to do so and it can be helpful later on.Most of the checkboxes are necessary for Mojave to run properly anyways.

      • Not all of the checkboxes will be selected at first. Be sure to select all of them.

    • Click patch after doing all of the necessary things above.

    Voeg opmerking toe

    • Click reboot after all of the patches are completed.

      • The patch too might rebuild the cache after pressing reboot, so be patient and wait for your Mac to reboot on its own.

    Remounting your new Mojave partition might be necessary.

    • You should now have been rebooted into a fully working copy of Mojave. Yay you!

Replying to my own question. Yes it work . Today I tried. Thing is now after post patch. My keyboard won’t work. Guess I need a original Apple wired keyboard . Tomorrow I go office and try if that is so valuable maybe should buy from my boss

Alex -

can this be installed on a 2011 with an already faulty GPU or does the GPU have to be working for the first boot?

After I finished installing everything, My keyboard doesn’t work properly. I can press shortcuts, but I can’t type in Safari or other applications, but I can type in spotlight. I’m using 2009 iMac.

When I installed it first, the keyboard works well, but after installing Onyx and used the Onyx maintenance tool. After restarting then the keyboard shortcuts works, and I can only type in spotlight.

One thing I love about this patch, is the fact that I now have Siri.

So how can I resolve that keyboard issue?
