[Solved] [SCRIPT] PurgeWrangler: AMD + NVIDIA eGPUs for all Thunderbolt Macs
Tested the beta script on Big Sur beta 1. Bit of a pain with the new security, but now working!
@psonice, good to hear! Did you have to disable FileVault to disable authenticated root? It seems this may be required.
Last update :
Reinstallation seems fixed the rebuild kextache error , however it suck on the apple boot logo when rebooting
Maybe it's the problem of unsupported Mac

@killercheung, Via recovery, try running kcditto as well as diskutil apfs update Preboot (check the command for this, am on tablet) for your boot volume.
Additionally, ensure you have the latest version of the script by running the command in the advanced handbook as there have been some changes since we discussed last.
@mac_editor, Hi, is it possible to choose on which Mac OS I can apply the patch? I have 2 macOS installed on the same SSD Catalina 10.15.5 and 11 Big Sur beta 1. When I do the installation (Big Sur) it shows like I already have BackUP from 10.15, so I think it is doesn't work correctly. My hardware MacBook Pro 13" 2015 + eGPU Razer Core X Vega 64 + Apple Thunderbolt 2 to 3 Adapter. In macOS 10.15.5 eGPU work correctly.
P.s. Sorry for my English, my native language is Russian.
@rivadart, If you upgraded to macOS Big Sur beta from Catalina, then it will show your last use of purge-wrangler on the previous OS (since you upgraded and purge-wrangler files were left as is). If not, there may be a bug with the root volume detection (for example, if Catalina is your default OS - it may return that volume) but I haven't tested with multiple installs yet. The intent of the script is to only modify the OS it is executed on.
@mac_editor, Yes, I have 2 macOS on the same SSD.
I think it is a bug with the root volume detection, you right Catalina is my default OS, Big Sur - second.
In Big Sur it is still choosing Catalina volume.

I updated purge-wrangler via the advanced handbook in macOS 11 and now the system gets stuck on the apple logo. But this time there were no messages about existing backup.
