Introducción

No dejes que tu Mac envejezca y quede obsoleto. Instala la versión compatible de macOS Mojave.

Por favor, ten en cuenta que si instalas cualquier actualización de Mojave de Apple en tu Mac, "bloquearás" tu máquina y se te pedirá que borres tu HDD / SSHD / SSD y comiences de nuevo.

    my mac got brick after update. i try to reinstall os high sierra. but cant choose the original harddisk. what should i do?

    Dennis Hanani Production - Contestar

    do your disk appear in disk utility ?

    Antoine Moreau -

    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?

    Vlad Movila - Contestar

    Same thing happened to me. after update. got bricked. having trouble re-installing system.

    Une solution ???

    Xavier Van de Meersche -

    Avez vous bien la dernière version du patcher ? Car sinon vous ne pouvez pas installer les dernières versions de Mojave

  6. Cuando el proceso esté completo, desconecta tu unidad USB y apaga tu Mac.
    • Cuando el proceso esté completo, desconecta tu unidad USB y apaga tu Mac.

    • Presiona el botón de encendido en tu Mac y mantén presionada la tecla Opción en el teclado tan pronto cuando veas la pantalla de inicio gris o el logotipo de Apple.

    • Si solamente tienes un teclado de Windows, conseguirás el mismo efecto que con la tecla Opción si mantienes pulsado ALT.

    • Mantén pulsada la tecla Opción hasta que veas una pantalla que se vea similar a la imagen que añadí.

    You don’t need an Apple Keyboard for this part - any USB keyboard will do, just hold down the ALT key, it does the same thing!

    Si Bob - Contestar

    above is correct

    tr121 - Contestar

    You dont need a wired keyboard. A wireless one would do. Just hold on to the option key.

    Jon May - Contestar

    no me deja hacer la usb me manda error

    cobain2001que - Contestar

    Dice: Cuando el proceso esté completo, desconecta tu unidad USB y apaga tu Mac.

    Luego dice: Presiona el botón de encendido en tu Mac y mantén presionada la tecla Opción en el teclado tan pronto cuando veas la pantalla de inicio gris o el logotipo de Apple.

    Desconecto la unidad USB y apago el MAC, luego enciendo el MAC pero en ningún lado pone que tengo que insertar la unidad USB.

    No tiene sentido. Aun así, deje la unidad USB insertada y encendí el MAC en el modo Startup Manager (Power Button + Option) pero no me aparece la unidad USB, solo un disco duro y uno del modo recovery.

    Alguien sabe por que?

    Cristian Udrea - Contestar

    andresfernandezgomez83 - Contestar

    After holding the Option key, I get a screen similar to the example, but only 2 options show up. ‘Master’ and ‘Recovery- 10.12’. How can I proceed?

    Kelci Ptak - Contestar

    That’s because your patched USB isn’t recognized, retry from step 3 or try with another USB or SD card

    • Selecciona Mac OS Extended (registrado) o APFS y nombra tu HDD/SSHD/SSD con cualquier nombre que quieras que tenga.

    • Se requiere el formato APFS en Mojave para obtener las actualizaciones habituales del sistema de software. Si prefieres seleccionar Mac OS Extended (registrado), no recibirás ninguna actualización del sistema.

    • APFS trabajará en los modelos de finales de 2009 y posteriores como con High Sierra. Si tu dispositivo no admite originalmente High Sierra (y, por lo tanto, no puedes comenzar con APFS), no tendrás particiones de recuperación y la pantalla de reinicio será diferente.

    • No todas las casillas estarán seleccionadas al principio. Asegúrate de seleccionarlas todas.

    • Elije la unidad para los parches (el que acaba de instalar Mojave). Haz clic en el parche después de hacer todas las cosas necesarias anteriores.

    Same hare, exactly the same disapponting result.

    I have, as it seems, succeeded in installing Mojave on my MacMini 5.2 (mid 2012) following the instructions above.

    But: after the reboot (Stap 15) and removing theinstaller USB stick, al I get is the blinking folder icon with a question mark!

    Does anyone have a succession to solve this problem?

    Jaap van der Veen - Contestar

    Addition:

    When booting into the MacMini startup manager the only choices I have is internet recovery or choosing a WiFi network.

    In target disk mode the MacMino does mount as an external drive and does seem to contain al usual suspects when it come to folders and files.

    Did not work for me as an update from el Capitan , it keeps "rebooting loop" (after multiple time "force cache" pach) .

    As "clean" install work's on external drive, but after "migration assistant" my files, again keeps "rebooting loop" .

    Now i stuck with a Mac doing nothing,

    I can run only the installer from "Startup Manager" ("option key" on rebooting)

    (MacBook pro 4,1 the same as video) - (formatted disks "mac os extended journaled")

    Can anyone help? Thanks

    Pascal Millour - Contestar

    For those that had an issue… I have a 2010 MBP that I tried this on.

    On Step 14: “Choose the drive for the patches (the one where you just installed Mojave). Click patch after doing all of the necessary things above.”, my drive wasn’t displayed, my only option was the thumb drive. If I rebooted to my HD, I got a circle with a line through it, indicating no OS.

    I was able to complete the install by re-booting to the thumb drive, opening Disc Utility, and “Mounting” the hard drive (click on your HD then click Mount).

    Once the hard drive was mounted, my HD showed up in the MacOS Post Install, and the installation completed successfully.

    Hope that helps!

Peter C - Contestar

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.

Douglas Lee -

I have a Macbook 2008 with 10.7.5 on it and am being told that is the end of the line. Will this work on my Macbook?

Bill Hines - Contestar

If it’s a white MacBook you can hack Mountain Lion and maybe even later with the OS X Hackers tools (which I’ve never used.) If it’s an aluminum 2008 MacBook, it is compatible with the Mojave patcher.

Luke L -

Hi can i know whether Macbook pro late 2008 with el capitian will it work?

Alex - Contestar

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?

lewis Barker - Contestar

yep it can work on a faulty GPU. I run it on a MacBook Pro 2011 17inch with a faulty GPU and it runs like a dream.

Anthony Kaisaris -

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?

Sarki Amada - Contestar

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.

Marshall WahlstromHelgren -

Hello everyone,

does anybody knows if the bluetooth keyboard is working after installing the patched mojave?

Are there any issues with software that will not work on the patched mojave?

how can I uninstall the patches if necessary?

Subhy Omar - Contestar

Hi,

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.

Thanks for your help.

Innacity Man - Contestar

I installed MacOS Mojavi on an unsupported 2011 Mac Mini to 10.14.2. Previously, I had upgraded the HD with an 256 SSD, and I am happy with the ability to upgrade. I even used the Apple upgrade to 10.14.3, without bricking it!

David Petersen - Contestar

Trying this, but the tool won’t download Mojave - always High Sierra? Any ideas? I’m running a Macbook 5,1 with El Capitan.

Cho - Contestar

Upgrade to High Sierra first.

rynousa -

Just to let you guys know if you have a working hard drive and you dont want to loose your data skip step 9. Theres no need to format the HDD the patch will work as an update.

Aron Jones - Contestar

The article claims that you will have installed a fully working copy of macOS Mojave. That isn’t quite accurate. There are two important functions that are not working Quartz Extreme and Metal. You cannot used iMovie for one because of this deficiency.

John Donahue - Contestar

That’s not true. I was able to run iMovie 10.1.12 (highest version for High Sierra) on Mojave on MacBook late 2008. Version 10.1.13 was closing when I was creating a project or importing media. Fortunately I had another MacBook with natively supported High Sierra and I just copied version 10.1.12 from there and it’s working!!!

Mariusz Kozłowski -

Hi! This is an original Mojave os? When i install it, i got an original Apple Mojave os?

Balazs Bota - Contestar

Thank you for this great guide!

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?

jlepawsky - Contestar

I just installed Mojave on a 2011 iMac. It is running 10.14.3 and has taken an Apple update without bricking. Websites/internet/wifi/bluetooth/USB all run smoothly. HOWEVER, the system is VERY slow now compared to when it was running High Sierra. Objects moved across the screen create acid trail duplicates that persist for some time. Any idea what could be gimping the system? Please advise.

J Kanter - Contestar

Received error message (macOS could not be installed on your computer) during installation on my disk that had apple installed MacOs High Sierra. I decided to do a clean install as the partition with the MacOs High Sierra wasn’t booting again. I keep getting the same error message after some time during installation. What do I do?

joerichlad - Contestar

Installed Mojave on my aluminum 2008 MacBook 2.4ghz professor with no issues and it is running it perfectly! I upgraded to a 250gb SSD and that really gave it a boost.

My isight and facetime work work with no issues, in addition to the other onboard apple appps. 3rd party apps are working like a dream and it actually runs faster that El Capitan IMO. What an amazing different and I would like to thank the developers of this for giving our older macs some new life and features!

Todd Bates - Contestar

I have updated my Mac and it is now running 10.14.2. many thanks.

I see that 10.14.3 is now available but cannot update to it as it is “not compatible” with my machine.

Any ideas what the issue may be?

Martin Dalgleish - Contestar

It worked flawlessly on my macbook air 11” mid 2011, on my macmini mid 2010 and even on my macbook white unibody!!!! All of them with SSD and memory upgrade (except for the macbook air, which runs on 4Gb RAM). Running smooth and no problems until now! Thanks for this patch, it gave new life to those old, but great machines!

Encountering App Store sign-in problem. It appeared to keep on ‘un-sign-in’ although I had signed-in successfully. Purposely tried with wrong password and it appeared incorrect password error message. HELP HELP! WHY CAN NOT SIGN IN ?

Derick Chua - Contestar

1. If App Store is running, quit the app.

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

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

4. Run the command.

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

After performing final patch, an error popped up saying the volume of Mojave is not a valid copy and rebooting the original HD does not boot succssfully. I downloaded the patch tool from the link provided. Any suggestions on the fix? I feel that my HD is unrecoverable at this point…

drummerboy - Contestar

Installation went well on my macbook8,1. Late 2011 13” pro.

However, I had to go to disk utility to mount the ssd drive, then go back and install the patch.

And……the camera does not work nor does the screen brightness buttons. After multiple tries with terminal and terminating vcd and appleassistant, etc etc, I reverted back to High Sierra. No fix possible.

But, the guide above is very good and made my job easy. Thanks!

NOTE: This will look absolutely terrible if your Mac uses a pre-Metal graphics card. If that is the case, you may be able to patch it with this: https://github.com/SpiraMira/HybridMode-...

Hello I’m pretty sure ive followed every step correctly but when rebooting the start up screen goes from white and loading to grey then it restarts saying there was an error…. any Ideas on how to fix this?

Nick Cochran - Contestar

Hi guys! Followed every step on my macbook pro 8.2 late 2011, also followed dosdude1 steps to disable the dedicated gpu but when the laptop boots after the bar fills until half a circle shows and after it rotates for a while nothing happens. Also repeated the patch procedure but nothing happens. Im completely stuck and the laptop is unusable. Please help me!

Rimi - Contestar

I’m having the same problem! Could someone help?

Perm Sauce -

If anyone’s boot screen stops halfway. Go to the maker of the patch’s website. http://dosdude1.com/mojave/ He has the most recent patch. It should boot normally after installing using the patch from his website.

Perm Sauce - Contestar

This happened to me with the updated installer I’ve been trying this all day today. Crazy thing is, i’m trying it right now and i’m not sitting at the spinning icon. It’s just slowly progressing and I have my fingers crossed because like an idiot I clean installed this stuff so without access to another Mac I cannot get high sierra back lmao.

Cody Goodling - Contestar

So I have been unable to get this to boot correctly. I’ve followed all the steps I have a mid 2010 13 MacBook Pro. Idk what’s wrong.. I’ve tried this so many times…

@ iFixit You guys need to update the download link for the Mojave patcher with the original link from Dosdude or close this thread completely because you are messing people’s macs with the old link. Thats what happened in my case. My macbook pro was stuck in boot and I had to redo the entire process with link from dosdude to get my mac working again.

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.

Solution:

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.

NO SUCCESS :-(

How long it should take?

Andrzej Gawron - Contestar

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

I was able to install Mojave on a Mid 2009 MacBook Pro. HOWEVER, the audio doesn’t work and I also can’t increase or decrease the screen brightness. Anyone else having this problem? Please share if you know how to fix.

Xavier - Contestar

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.

Cheers!

hi,

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.

Did you get this resolved? I have the exact same imac and was about to use this patch to update for my son.

mandispring -

Will this also work for an MacBook Pro 16 (2019) MacBookPro16,1 ?

Gerard Dirks - Contestar

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.

Douglas Lee - Contestar

I tried to install the Mojave on an SD Card. Alle ist working finde until the Patch try to personalize the volume.

I have El Capitan on my macbook late 2008 (2.4ghz). Are people upgrading to mojave for security reasons or added features in the Mojave update? Because I would assume that updating the Macos to a newer version will only slower your computers performance. Am I missing something?

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.

Hello All,

I did the last security update of Mojave (2020-004 I think) on my MacBook pro 17” (Early 2009) and now its restarts in loop. Any information about this?

PIC - Contestar

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!

It’s really weird, the other colors are correct ? try command, option and F5 at the same time to show the accessibility menu, I had the colors inverted once and I struggled to change it. Or I find something similar to your problem on the internet, I hope it will help you !
