on mac ox?

 

Seems that I'm unable to properly run tb3 enabler.  Even when manually altering the kext, still no go.  In the past I've had no issues with manually altering the kext.

You can manually edit the controller file inside /System/Library/Extensions/IOThunderboltFamily.kext/contents/MacOS with a hex editor such as iHex. Do a Find and Replace.

Download and run Kext Utility to repair kext permissions. Restart your Mac then proceed with automate-eGPU script.

Thank you.  Repairing permissions fixed the issue.  Now just need to wait for new web drivers.  I contemplated reverting back to 10.12.2 but the battery fixes in 10.12.3 beta are really noticeable.

Hi, could you please check if this still works with macOS 10.13?
