High Sierra Patcher
High Sierra Patcher Tool For Unsupported Macs
The macOS High Sierra Patcher, is designed for all the mac users. The file accessed by this tool is directly from Apple server, so you will get a valid macOS installer for sure. Moreover, the tool is completely free and no ads or adware within the app. I have just installed dosdude1's High Sierra Patcher on my 2008 Mac Pro 3,1. The Patcher installed fine, I managed to run the installer, then that completed and went to reboot (as it should have). My issue is that now the machine seems to try to boot up, but shuts off half way through. Available for: macOS Sierra 10.12.6, macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, macOS Mojave 10.14.4. Impact: An application may be able to read restricted memory. Description: A validation issue was addressed with improved input sanitization. CVE-2019-8603: Phoenhex and qwerty (@niklasb, @qwertyoruiopz, @bkth) working with Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative. If you want to check compatibility before downloading the installer, learn about the minimum requirements for macOS Catalina, Mojave, High Sierra, Sierra, El Capitan, or Yosemite. You can also check compatible operating systems on the product-ID page for MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, MacBook, iMac, Mac mini, or Mac Pro. MacOS High Sierra Patcher application is intended for those with unsupported Macs and Hackintosh users, but any Mac user can use the app to be able to download the complete installer file from Apple servers.
