    my problem is another one. I bought a new MacBook pro retina in late 2013 that supports Mojave but no way I can install it. app store pushed me only Big Sur since it works on this model but it slows down and don’t need it. Right now I have 10.9.5 macOS and I only get errors where download a Mojave version from the internet. Since its new computer cleans no need for any time machine or backup just a basic Mojave update. How to fix that?

I have a mid 2009 MacBook Pro. I’ve gone through this process. Everything has worked great, till I reboot. It gets most of the way through then it hangs up. I’ve let it set for hours and nothing. You have any suggestions?

jetjock256 -

After initial install, the computer cannot complete reboot without the patch “MacOS Post install” (see step 13 above). This will require a hard shut down (hold down the power button if it is stuck) and restart holding down the alt/option key until you can select the installer again. This time, do not reinstall the OS but click on the button on the side (or double click it), or select in the pull down menu.

This will need to be repeated for updates, if new updates also get stuck.

Hope this helps.

Hi Sarki, I think I may have found the solution to your bluetooth device not working. Read this article here’s the link:https://blog.macsales.com/46143-macos-10.... You have to delete the Bluetooth P-list heres the steps:To delete the Bluetooth plist file, follow these steps:

Open a Finder window, and browse to /Library/Preferences.

Locate the file named: com.apple.Bluetooth.plist.

Select the com.apple.Bluetooth.plist file and drag it to the trash.

Empty the trash.

The com.apple.Bluetooth.plist file will be recreated.

Go ahead and try using or connecting a Bluetooth device

I really hope that helps! If you have more trouble be sure to let us know and if you have sucess.

I installed the patch on a Mac Pro 2008 3.1 and I’m experiencing a lot of issues… Graphic issues even if my graphic card is in the list of compatible cards (Nvidia), Logic Pro crashing all the time. Wifi not working, airport card not recognized. What should I do ? Also, know that I installed the High Sierra patch before and it worked perfectly, I just had to change my airport card. I wondered if I can downgrade to High Sierra.

I must also give the information that I took out the SSD of the Mac Pro (where the system is installed) and brought it home to do install the patch and Moyave from my MacBook Pro. When I had the window asking me the model, I choose Mac Pro 3.1. Maybe this have an incidence on the issues I have.

Can I just ask for clarification about the statement at the beginning: “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.” Does this mean that if Mojave is placed on an unsupported Mac, then things like automatic updates or future security updates released by Apple should NOT be installed on the device?

Make sure everyone here uses the latest version of the Mojave patcher for 10.14.5 from dosdude’s website. Don’t use any old links posted in this guide. (I just updated the link in the guide to the latest version as of now.)

I have installed on MacMini (Early 2009) successfully.

During the process I had face off with 2 problems:

1. The patcher app wasn’t capable to download the Mojave image file…after a couple of seconds the download has canceled. So, I have to download it from elsewhere.

2. After the successfull install I have realised Mojave couldn’t connect to AppStore.


If App Store is running, quit the app.

Open the Terminal (you can search for it using Command-Space).

Copy and paste this: defaults delete com.apple.appstore.commerce

Run the command.

Open App Store, sign in, and hit retry a few times.

I tried to install on MacBook Pro 2012. Patcher recognized version 8.2, so I chave chosen that.

As result after restart OS has stopped installing patches at about 80 percent of progress strip.

You don’t need to patch the installer for a 2012, the 2012 MacBook Pro supports Mojave natively and will support Catalina this fall.

Hey Y’all,

Just wanted to let you know the version of the patcher contained in this article is deprecated. The patcher downloads the 10.14.4 version of Mojave, but the version of the Patcher you have linked in this article can’t install the Post Install Patches resulting in a permanent hang on first boot. Totally fixable, I’d update the link to point at Dosdude’s most current version which installs and works like a dream! Just thought I’d let you know, spent awhile backtracking and fixing this after downloading the patcher from this article lol.

i was wondering if this would work on both my Mid 2011 AMD Radeon HD 6770M, and my mid 2011 macbook air 11” i7. reading the notes and from what i read online it would be a bad idea to try on my 2011 due to the graphics but would this issue be fixed? would this issue update benefit my macbook air 2011 with the right click issue (you have to keep tapping the right side and magicly the option appears. thanks for the heads up in advance.

Gerard Dirks - 回复

A couple of things that I noticed: After the install (before the patcher, the screen on my MBA mid-2011 went white (since it could not reboot without the patcher). I did a hard shutdown and restarted holding the option key to get back to the installer for the post install patch.

Second, updates from both the patcher (for mitigating known update issues) required a restart which worked but the second time through with Mojave updates got stuck similar to the original install and required a re-post-install patching like before. This could be disturbing for folks who don’t realize this.

Hi there.

I need to have Lion installed on iMac 14,2. Since the machine was manufactured prior to Lion release, they are not quite in good terms, and iMac insists on not having Lion in :)

So I used another Mac to have Lion installed on an external and copied it into the non-cooperative one - no luck either, for it banned Lion from booting anyway …

Any idea on how to cheat them into some sort of liaison?

È il mio stesso problema.

Sembra che Apple non consente di installare un sistema operativo precedente alla versione installata al momento della vendita della macchina.

It's my own problem.

It appears that Apple does not allow you to install an operating system older than the version installed at the time of the sale of the machine.

PIC - 回复

My Bad !

Everything is explained in the section called “Additional Info” of Dosdude1 tutorial:

“After applying ANY system update via Software Update, re-applying post-install patches using your Mojave Patcher installer volume will most likely be necessary. If you install a software update and the system fails to boot afterwards, this is what needs to be done.”

My problem is solved.

Great job Dosdude1 and thanks to Ifixit! I am so happy to give a second life to such a beautiful machine!

Hallo zusammen! Ich habe nun den 5. Macmini 2009 mit dem Mojave Patcher bespielt - bisher lief es immer einwandfrei. Bei diesem mal aber funktionieren aber bei Starten die USB-Treiber nicht mehr.

Wenn ich vorher mit OPTION den Start unterbreche, dann ist noch alles in Ordnung, sobald aber die SSD das gepatchte Mojave startet kann ich das Land nicht auswählen. Mit Auswahl der SSD oder mit Neustart ohne OPTION werden alle 5 USB sofort ausser Betrieb genommen.

Ich habe die festplatte nochmal gelöscht und neu formatiert und wieder neu installiert und anschließend gepatcht, aber es taucht der selve Fehler auf. Hat jemand ein Lösung?

Heya. I managed to install 10.14.6 on a SSD in a Mac Pro (early 2008). I followed through with the post install, installed security updates, repatched with the post install and everything is working… more or less.

The only issue I have is that the Mac Pro won’t boot on the first go. The Apple logo appears and looks like like it’s booting but then the screen goes black and nothing happens. I have to do a cold shutdown, wait a couple of seconds and the fire up the Mac again. Then the boot process works.

Did I miss something with installing dosdude’s patch?

Thanks in advance for any tips!
