Mojave Boots Right Through Single User Mode

In trying to troubleshoot my two-month-old MacBook Pro with TouchBar (2018)1, I tried booting into Single User Mode. This had previously worked, but for some reason, it now boots right through it. The text appears on the screen, small like always, and then I get the progress bar and the computer prompts me to log in with the normal login screen.

The MacBook Pro has a T2 chip and thus has the boot security, but those are set to Full Security.

FileVault is not enabled. I've checked that a few times.

I'm not sure what's going on here, but the inability to boot into Single User Mode (cmd-S during startup) is troubling.


  1. The front-right USB-C port has never worked - no power, no data, nothing.
