Hey Guys,

It looks like Apple released a new 10.13.6 Supplemental Update for us early adopters of the Mid 2018 MacBook Pro.

Any idea what this patch does and/or if it is safe to update or not?

The second supplemental update was to fix T2-based kernel panics and audio driver issues in MacOS, and to apply the thermal management fixes from the previous update to bootcamp.  I can now get optimal performance in bootcamp in cpu intensive apps without having to set thermal limits in XTU.

@ningauble77 oh wow, that is incredible news! I've been running my CPU at 90% Max Performance in the Power Plan Settings in order to avoid Thermal Throttling. I'm excited to see the results in Bootcamp after this update.

@ningauble77 Can confirm this myself on a 2018 15" MBP 2.6G. Cores are throttled still via firmware per logs, but not by a lot (seen 4.1GHz on all cores via HWiNFO64 sometimes).

@mac_editor thank you for your answer. But how I reapply patches in MacOs ? can you provide any tutorial or indications that could help? last time I setup my EGPU was last month and was following this video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=139&v=l-GOx9ttdKk

thank you.

I too have this same problem, could you explain what you mean by "reapply patches"?

I've tried running macos-egpu.sh again but get the same error all the time: "A system file (wrangler), has been replaced and does not fit to the system. You must revert those changes in order to continue. You can also upgrade to the latest supported release or reinstall macOS."

I figured purge wrangler was something i needed to do so i ran that and it made no difference, could anyone provide some instructions?

When you update the OS, any patches made using scripts are undone. So for whatever script you used, reinstall the patches by following the instructions for that script. Don't mix scripts - stick to one. If you want to start with a clean system, just reinstall macOS on top of your existing installation.

I've also tried to install the exact same way posted by fr34k and it comes up with the same message as previous users report. system file (wrangler) has been replaced..... 

could you write up a tutorial on how to reinstall the patches.
