macOS Mojave upgrade from macOS High Sierra Hackintosh

macOS Mojave is here for all the Mac users with supported MacBooks and Mac computers. Upgrading a Hackintosh to newer macOS Mojave is as usual not a piece of cake. I’ve been using macOS High Sierra from last year. You can watch the complete Installation here. macOS High Sierra doesn’t have compatibility for Intel UHD 630 Graphics so I was able to get my core i7 8700K working using fake ids and kexts for the graphics. In macOS Mojave, Intel UHD 630 can work without using fake IDs or Intel Injection.

macOS Mojave Upgrade

macOS Mojave can be downloaded from Appstore using your Apple ID.

Download it and open the App macOS Mojave.

Make sure to copy the “EFI Partition” to a flash drive as you may need it for booting the Installation. After the first reboot, sometimes the EFI folder from the SSD is removed. That’s why you need to boot via USB to use its EFI partition for booting up the system. Everything goes buttery smooth from there and macOS is upgraded to macOS Mojave in around 15-20 min. You’ll not lose any files during the upgrade process but it’s better to create a backup of your SSD.

Here is how you can create a bootable USB for macOS Mojave.

General Issues and Troubleshooting after Upgrade

  • Intel UHD 630 graphics acceleration wasn’t working due to injected fake Ids so I’d to change the config file. I was using Intel Graphics Fix Up in macOS High Sierra. macOS Mojave has built-in support for Intel UHD 630 graphics so you don’t need intel graphics fix up now. Delete intel graphics fixup from kext folder. and make sure you have the latest “lilu.kext” and “whatevergreen.kext” in the “kext/Other” folder.
  • You’ll be stuck at loading screen if you use wrong SM Bios. For Intel Core i7 8700K, select iMac 14,2 from the dropdown in SMBios tab.
    • Sky Lake: Select iMac 17,1 or iMac 14,2
    • Haswell: Select iMac 14,2
    • Ivy Bridge: Select iMac 14,2
  • Gigabyte / ASUS Motherboard users Only
    • Highlight Acpi on left column
    • Under fixes check FixShutdown
  • ASUS / ASRock / MSI / Motherboard users Only
    • Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
    • Highlight Boot on left column
    • Under Arguments press the drop down arrow next to darkwake
      1. Select darkwake = 1 if using an ASUS motherboard
      2. Select darkwake = 8 if using an ASROCK or MSI motherboard
    • Save config.plist
  • Magenta Tint on External Display/ Monitor
    • Open a terminal
    • Type Ruby and Drag “patch-edid.rb” next to it.
    • Press enter and this will create a new file in “Home” directory of your computer. Press Shift+Command+H to navigate to that directory.
    • Copy folder and paste in Installation SSD/System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides
    • Reboot your system. It will fix magenta tint.

7 beautiful Lakes of Pakistan

Lulusar Lake

Lulusar is a group of mountain peaks and a lake in the Kaghan Valley,  Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It is one of the largest lakes in Pakistan.

The highest peak has a height of 11,200 ft (3,410 m) above sea level. Lulusar Lake also is a lake at 3,410 m (11,190 ft). The lake is 48 kilometers away from Naran on the Naran-Babusar road.

The lake is surrounded by snowcapped mountains, making it a natural tourist attraction.  In summers, when the surface reflects its surroundings sharply like a mirror, a large number of domestic and foreign visitors make it a popular destination.

You can take any car to the Lake due to the carpeted road. Lake is right on the Road going to Chilas from Naran.

Lalusar Lake is the main source of the Kunhar River, which flows through the entire Kaghan Valley through Jalkhand, Naran Valley, Kaghan, Jared, Paras, and Balakot until it joins the Jhelum River.

Saiful Muluk Lake

Saiful Muluk is a mountainous lake located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley, near the town of Naran in the Saiful Muluk National Park. The lake is a source of the Kunhar River. At an elevation of 3,224 m (10,578 feet) above sea level, the lake is located above the tree line and is one of the highest lakes in Pakistan. Saiful Muluk is located in the Mansehra district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, about 9 kilometers (5.6 mi) north of Naran, in the northern part of Kaghan Valley. Malika Parbat, the highest peak in the valley is near the lake.

The lake is accessible from the nearby town of Naran during the summer season but access during winter is limited.

Saiful Muluk was formed by glacial moraines that blocked the water of the stream passing through the valley. The Kaghan Valley was formed in the greater Pleistocene Period dating back almost 300,000 years when the area was covered with ice. Rising temperatures and receding glaciers left a large depression where glaciers once stood. Melting water collected into the lake.

The Lake Saiful Muluk is named after a legendary prince. A fairy tale called Saif-ul-Muluk, written by the Sufi poet Mian Muhammad Bakhsh, talks of the lake. It tells the story of the prince of Persia named Prince Saiful Malook who fell in love with a fairy princess named Princess Badri-ul-Jamala at the lake.‎

Ratti Gali Lake

Ratti Gali Lake is an alpine glacial lake which is located in Neelum Valley, Kashmir, Pakistan at an altitude of 12,130 feet (3,700 m). The lake is fed by the surrounding glacier waters of the mountains.

As the lake is fed by glaciers, it does not have any designated inlets for springs and rivers and the route to the lake is easily accessible in the summer months. The nearest village settlement which serves as a base camp for the tourists who wish to visit the lake is Dorian. The flora and fauna of the area are well known throughout the world. Small animals such as otters are usually visible during the trek and large birds such as hawks. Flowering plants cover the valley during the summer season but during the snowed months there is almost no shrubbery to be seen. However, large trees continue to thrive.

Rainbow Lake is in the Domel Region of Gilgit Baltistan. It’s in the restricted area so you’ve to take NOC from the army to visit it.

To go to Rainbow Lake, You’ve to travel to Chillam Choki from Astore. Then after crossing Burzil Pass at a height of 13808 ft you enter into Region which is somehow part of Kashmir.

From Minimarg you can go to Domel in Jeep and its 45min-1 hr Jeep Drive. You reach the lakes after crossing a series of check posts.

The lake was known as Yeldram Lake. Over the years, the spectacular appearance of two rainbows after every rainfall and the presence of rainbow trout in its water made it be known as “Rainbow Lake”.

Naltar Lakes

Naltar is a valley near Gilgit, Hunza, and  Nomal , Gilgit Baltistan in the Gilgit–Baltistan province of Pakistan. Naltar is 40 km (25 mi) from Gilgit and can be reached by jeeps. Naltar is a forested region known for its dramatic mountain scenery.

The road up to the lakes is a non-metallic dirt-road alongside a rivulet, flowing down the valley. The lakes are surrounded by dense pine forests, during winters it becomes almost impossible to reach the lake with any vehicle due to the heavy snow (10 to 15 feet high) on the road.
