@techyowl already merged it 😉 nice catch that one haha. The broader checks for different os versions and hardware will be handled in a bigger ‘super script’ so to speak, courtesy of @fr34k.

Also the .wglr extension and superuser permissions are in place to ‘dissuade’ people from modifying it. Not that they can’t. Now we could check that too, but that’d be a bit much lol. 

I look forward to the 'Super Script' I had a feeling @fr34k was working on something along those lines.
Yeah if the end user modify's those backups lets just assume they either know what they are doing or are willing to accept fault. There is somewhat of a reason Apple puts a mask on all the magic behind the curtains and discourages everyone from touching things they shouldn't. Doesn't stop those who know there way around things.

Got it to work too on my Mac Pro. It boots with the eGPU attached only, monitor connected to eGPU. Boots a bit slower though than normal. I used the kext from 13.3.2, didn't have one from 13.3.3 anymore.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Congratulations. Then you don't need to use the PureWrangler script, are you?
The missing hot unplug feature makes this unusable for me anyway. :/ What happens when you close the lid? Will it restore correctly?

It would be nice if someone uploaded the AppleGPUWrangler.kext from 10.14.1 beta 1

Correct, if you're copying over AppleGPUWrangler.kext you just need to set permissions.

Hi rmvz3. I did not need to use the script. After the installation of the needed Nvidia files (Driver, CUDA and NVDAEGPUSupport-v8, I've just used the AppleGPUWrangler.kext from 10.13.4 beta 1 and did the mac_editor suggested commands for permission repair. Closing the lid shuts the monitor light but will deactivate password protection. After reopen the lid the computer will be immediately available. Shutdown works fine but logout does not work. If we try to logout the monitor goes black and stays that way until a forced restart. 
All the rest it's working just fine. HotPlug for itself it is a great add because sometimes I have the computer on, with work ongoing and now I do not need to log out and in anymore.

Thank you for answering rhenriques11 and Sovereign. In fact, the hot plug feature was the main reason for me to test this thing because I never boot my mac (only for booting with bootcamp), just open/close the lid. I don't want to have to remember to shut down and boot every time (and switch on/off the eGPU PSU). With hot-plug however I would plug the eGPU only when I wanted.

I'll try if I can, anyway. Always is good to have the option to use the 1070 if I need it.

Great! I can live with that! Thank you for your help, rhenriques11.

BTW, where is supposed to be the AppleGPUWrangler.kext? I can't find it anywhere. Also, I don't think I have a proper Time Machine version of it :/

EDIT: I've found GPUWrangler.framework in library/PrivateFrameworks. Is this it?

Thanks a ton!!!!!))))

I have got a success. My devices are:

  1. Mid 2015, 15 i7 2,5 16gb + AMD Radeon R9 M370X + Intel Iris Pro
  2. Akitio tunder 2
  3. MSI Radeon RX 560 4gb

I had got nothing or black screens after I have installed then script 1.1.1.  Then I started to read posts and I found some extra. This is the link. https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/app-automate-egpu-by-goalque/paged/2/#post-33291

So..
1) I pasted into "/System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4000.kext/Contents/Info.plist" directory key from the link above.
2) re-install  sudo ./
purge-wrangler.sh

CHEEEERRRSSS!!!!!!!!
