Hello,

Wouldn't there be a way to flash the EFI of Mac Thunderbolt 1 and 2 to allow native eGPU support without patching the system. Many tutorials exist for the hardware part (the material is very inexpensive), it is the soft modification that is problematic ... for me anyway.

Thank you.

@le-tof, flashing Mac firmware is overkill. Just use kryptonite to inject patches via EFI without modifying the system.
