Installation steps
+ I used an Apple ThunderBolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2/1 adapter, and an Apple Thunderbolt 2 cable to connect the Mantiz Venus to the TB1 MacBook Pro
+ I ran Mac_editor’s PurgeWrangler script, which worked beautifully the first time
+ Reboot, hot plug, log-out, log-in… and the eGPU was operational in macOS

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts
