Hi there! First of all, thanks for the fantastic explanation you have made : )

I still got the problem a lot of people have here. I don't get the Nvidia Card to show up in the System. I just get the

Has any one a fix for this?

 

 

EDIT: It works great with my Macbook Pro late 2016, but not with the one from 2017. Even with the updated .plist

I edited the build number and have some partial success. At least the Nvidia recognizes that **something** from Nvidia is present. However, as you see on the screenshots I do not see the 1080 TI. Do you have some suggestions?

Were you able to get it running ?

No it doesn't show the Nvidia Card in "About this Mac". The driver is normally loaded after reboot, but the .kext just won't load because it thinks the MacOS Version is wrong (at least this is my guess). I even altered the plist located in the driver kext with the default version number of the rMBP 2017 but still no luck.....

I am having the same issue as well on my 15" Macbook pro 2017...  I changed the version in systemversion.plst which allowed the drivers to install, but every time I boot I get the error saying I can't use them and need to run from default drivers.  Under graphics and displays in system viewer the card is coming up as "Display".  Type is GPU and vendor is NVIDIA (0x10de).  Kernel Extension Info: says no Kext loaded.  Has anyone gotten this working?

What software did you use to edit systemversion.plist as I used xcode...  Maybe that is the difference?

Same here. I edited the .plist file in Xcode since I did not understand how to make the change in the Terminal. Any chance to get a quick video in how to do this change of values in the Terminal? I tried a few time without any luck...

@D1gits

I have tried it with nano, still no luck. I used this command: sudo nano -w /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

Have you done anything else to get it running?

I updated the plist with Atom instead of Xcode. So perhaps that led to the differences between our implementations. Let me know if that changes anything for you.

With the release of 10.12.6 today I am hoping NVIDIA releases updated drivers for it shortly and that those updated drivers will fix our issues with the odd build number.

NVIDIA apparently updated their drivers last night for 10.12.6 so I decided to update my system software try new drivers.  The new drivers with the OS update seem to have resolved all issues I was having getting the egpu to function under Mac OS 10.12.5 16F20237

Do you have Windows on your Mac? I have the exact same machine and wanted to install Windows but unsure how this set up would run in that environment. If you have tested this can you provide any insight?
