Using a MacBook Pro 2012 / 650 (10.13.4) gives black screen with your script and the mac_editor TB1/2 enabler.
The eGPU is detected.

The same BreakawayBox with the 7970 works on a MBP 15 2017.

Any idea how to get a screen signal? The Monitors are powering up - but there is only a "black" screen.
The Displays are shown in the "About this Mac" window. The internal Monitor is working but VERY choppy.

Thanks for any ideas how to get this running.

@eAlchemist
Have you tried logging out then logging back in when you get a recognized but black screen? I'm currently testing how my RX 460 works on 10.13.4 vs 10.12.6 and also get a black screen by default. 
My current procedure to get everything working is:

  • kextload
  • Connect eGPU without connected monitor (eGPU isn't always recognized with connected display)
  • Connect external monitor (Black screen)
  • Log out (external monitor usually displays normally here)
  • Log back in.

Thanks for your answer!

I tried the described procedure and still just get the black screen.
As soon as a display is connected to the egpu the system starts to lag really bad. Like 1 frame per second, very unresponsive.
I will try to reinstall the os to see if this helps and will definitly report back.

Thanks.

Hi, what can i try if this happens: 

/Library/Extensions/automate-eGPU.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) authentication failure (file ownership/permissions); check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).

kext is in the folder /library/extensions/

I am trying to run a R 280x on a MBP 2014 (with GTX750)
