Haven't tested yet (will do so as soon as I have time to upgrade, plus time to restore from backup if needed) but have read the script, looks solid enough.

I can't unsee "IoT BS witch type" tho 😉

@mac_editor
Although the enabler for .4 isn't finished yet, I can say that I will add your script to mine as well (if needed, still fixing the panics) once it's in the final release for .4
in the meantime would you like to test my thunderbolt recognition script:

 

bash <(curl -s  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/learex/macOS-eGPU/macOS10134/ScriptTB.sh) 

 

if someone does not get the correct answer or even that it could not be detected please say...

I can confirm your script works on Mac Mini (late 2014) with RX 580. Great work!

I have a feeling that Apple kept Intel happy, and left a backdoor for us. If they deliberately wanted to block older TB technology, there are more effective ways to accomplish that in the EFI level.

Posted by: mac_editor Native eGPU support as if its a TB3 mac. Should not be a problem as far as I can tell in my tests. Macs with NVIDIA dGPUs still require my other patch to get things going.

I'm gonna try right now. I have a Nvidia 650M dGPU and I'm using a GTX1070 eGPU (Akitio Thunder2) on my TB1 MacBookPro. What patch do you say I need to install? Do you mean the nvidia-egpu.v7 from here?

So what's the proper order to enable a Nvidia dGPU Mac with TB1/2 from scratch? Would this be correct?

1- Install Nvidia drivers (SIP enabled)
2- Install NVIDIAEGPUSupport (SIP enabled without Kext)
3- Install PureWrangler (SIP disabled)

EDIT: This is a bit offtopic but I've noticed I no longer have to use DIYeGPU 1.35 to boot with my eGPU on Bootcamp since now I can plug the egpu, turn on the mac and choose Windows without having to do the double boot dance. Before this, if I tried to boot with the egpu plugged in, the mac freezed. I needed to plug the egpu cable just after the chime and do the double boot using the DIYeGPU boot partition.

@rmvz3, Nvidia cards are still not working with 10.13.4, unfortunately.

Wonderful, many thanks I'll test it on my MacPro 2013 + Vega soon!

I'm sorry that it takes so long,
I only have a few hours a day where I can test and tweak.
And still some research needs to be done before a closed beta can be published and then on the following day if all goes well then to the public.
atm, the drivers cause the problem not the wrangler (as far as I can tell for now)
