You can now install macOS 10.13 High Sierra Hackintosh thanks to the release of UniBeast 8.0. Here are the details.
UniBeast, one of the most popular and powerful tools in the arsenal of individuals looking to create a bootable USB drive for macOS or assist with the process of setting up a Hackintosh, has just been updated to version 8.0. The bump in version ensures that UniBeast is now officially compatible with Apple’s macOS High Sierra platform, which released globally via the Mac App Store just four weeks ago.
UniBeast has been increasingly growing in popularity from version-to-version, which is predominantly down to how powerful it is and how easy the tool provided by Tonymacx86 actually is. That’s always one of the challenges when you create something like UniBeast, to be able to take a process which is inherently complex and difficult, but build a tool which takes away a lot of the pain, abstracts the complexity away from the user, and presents itself as an easy-t0-use, non-daunting product.
UniBeast is pretty much the epitome of that, with version 8.0 picking up where the last 7.1.1 update left off. The official provided changelog for UniBeast version 8.0 is as follows:
– Updated for High Sierra
– Updated Clover to v2.4k r4259
– Added script No-Convert to disable automatic conversion of installation volume to APFS.
This script is run after the phase 1 reboot and before phase 2 of the install.
The changelog not only tells an interested party exactly what has changed with the release, and what has been improved, but also gives additional contextual awareness around the addition of the No-Covert script in relation to the new Apple File System (APFS) which ships with the company’s macOS High Sierra platform. The update not only means that interested users can now use UniBeast 8.0 to create a brand new USB bootable drive containing the official macOS High Sierra download from the Mac App Store, but also get the latest version of Apple’s desktop operating system onto a powerful Hackintosh PC, should they see fit.
The update was announced to the world in a dedicated post over the Tonymacx86 website, and can be downloaded right now with immediate effect at the dedicated downloads page over at tonymacx86.com. As always, this is offered as a free-of-charge download.
