There is a way to install macOS Mojave on those computers that Apple does not update officially and today is precisely what we are going to see. In this case, the important thing is to be clear that it is a somewhat complex process and it will not be as simple as if Apple itself allowed installation on our unsupported Macs.
The best thing is that the developer has created his own tool that allows us to perform a less complicated installation, but even with it It is not a simple process and requires your steps. A tool to update the patches called Patch Updater is also added, something that is appreciated in these cases.
In this video of dosdude1 we can see the process in a simple way in just under half an hour. For the installation of macOS Mojave a series of requirements are necessary that we leave behind the video and obviously the patch created by dosdude1 for the installation that requires 16GB USB installer. We will find all this in the description of the video and we also leave them below the video.
- Mac Pro, iMac, or MacBook Pro 2008 onwards
- iMac10, x
- iMac11, x
- iMac12, x
- MacBookPro5, x
- MacBookPro6, x
- MacBookPro8, x
- MacBook Air or MacBook Unibody aluminum late-2008 or later
- MacBookAir 2,1
- MacBookAir3, x
- MacBookAir4, x
- White Mac Mini or MacBook early 2009 onwards
- Macmini 3,1
- Macmini 4,1
- Macmini5, x
- Xserve from early 2008 or later
The Mac list that are NOT compatible even with this system installation are:
- Mac Pro, iMac, MacBook Pro and Mac Mini from 2006-2007
- iMac5, x
- Macmini 1,1
- Macmini 2,1
- Only the 7,1 iMac2007 is supported if the CPU has been upgraded to a Penryn-based Core 2 Duo, such as the T9300
- 2006-2008 MacBook
- MacBook4,1 -MacBook Air from 2008 (MacBookAir1,1)
The most important thing is to have the tool Patcher Tool found in the manual and in the video description. In case you need more information or have the steps at hand you can see the developer's website where you will find detailed all this installation manual. Now you have everything you need to be able to see your Mac not supported by macOS Mojave and you will be in charge of deciding whether it is worth performing this installation or not.
What we have to say about this macOS Mojave installation process is that this is not for all mac users Since it is an installation process that is not simple and also it may not work at all well on our Mac due to compatibility problems with the graphics, it may be that there are failures with the WiFi connection, the Bluetooth, failures in the trackpad or similar. This is something that the developer and creator of the tutorial warns us about, so it is not something that has to come back to us if macOS Mojave malfunctions occur.
On the other hand, I do not advise the installation in equipment that is necessary for daily use, work or the like for the aforementioned. So first of all say that in addition to being a somewhat more complicity installation than normal, everything may not work perfectly on our Mac without support for macOS Mojave. It is the responsibility of each one to carry out the installation or not and the Soy de Mac team is not responsible for any problems that may arise from the installation.
