  1. You can use this guide to get pod hdx running on your mac. The driver issue is a known issue. https://line6.com/support/topic/47572-guide-to-installing-pod-hd500x-on-os-x-mojave/
  2. Seems like a lot of folks are having problems with HD500x Edit and Mojave. I wrote this guide, using pieces of information collected around the net and it fixed my problems. Hopefully, it gives everyone some help for how to get this to work. Installing the Driver In OS X 10.13 and 10.14 Apple changed the Security Model to not allow unsigned drivers to load. This causes the Line 6 Monkey Program to not work correctly, as the install will run but it will not load the driver correctly, even after a restart. First, follow instructions here for getting driver install. https://line6.com/support/page/kb/recording/computer-audio-set-up-and-troubleshooting/macos-high-sierra-1013mojave-1014-driver-installation-change-r879/ This should the Line 6 driver to load and your HD500x should now function as an Audio Interface Installing HD500x Edit First off, Line 6 seemed to have removed HD500x from the download list. I was able to find a copy here http://line6.com/software/readeula.html?rid=5685 However, once downloaded, I could only get part way through the installation until the section where it asked me to choose which hard drive to install the program on, in which case they would all have an explanation point over the drives and have a message saying it could only be installed on computers running 10.5 or above. Basically Line 6 seems to have fallen for the same trap as the Y2K bug, in that the installer seems to check the Mac OS X version number by checking this file here /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist but only check the first 4 characters in the version number contained in this file (ie 10.14 would be read as 10.1 and since this is less then 10.5, it fails. To fix this we can temporarily change the version number in this file to 10.5, run the installer and then change it back to 10.14. Unfortunately, Apple has something called System Integrity Protection to prevent changes to this file, even by an administrative user. To get around this we need to disable System Integrity protection, restart make the version number change, run the installer, change the version back and then turn System Integrity Protection Back on WARNING * While this should not harm your system if done correctly, do so at your own risk* 1. Restart your Mac in Recovery Mode by turning the computer off. While turning back on, hold down the Command and the R key at the same time until you see the Apple Logo as described here: ttps://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201314 2 .Once you have entered recovery mode, and are staring at the recovery splash screen, click Utilities in the top menu and choose terminal. In the terminal windows that pops up, type in csrutil disable (Explicit in instructions here. https://www.imore.com/how-turn-system-integrity-protection-macos) 3 .Restart your Mac. 4. Once booted up again, click Command space to open Spotlight, and type terminal to find the terminal command again and open it. 5. In the terminal window, type sudo nano /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist (it should ask you for your password )This will open the system version file in the Nano Text Editor as the root user. Change the two line with the version of 10.14 to something like 10.54. Hit CONTROL-O then ENTER to save the file, Then CONTROL X to quit Nano. 6. Run the installer. It should work now Now reverse the steps to undo the changes you just made. 1. In the terminal, type sudo nano /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist change the version back to 10.14, hit Hit CONTROL-O then ENTER to save the file, Then CONTROL X to quit Nano. 2. Restart back in Recovery Mode, 3. Open Terminal and type csrutil enable to turn System Integrity Protection back on. 4. Restart 5. ROCK OUT! Hopefully, this helps someone!
