Thank you thank you thank mac_editor and everyone who helped!

I was extremely disappointed the past week after upgrading to 10.13.4 and realizing Apple broke support for TB2 machines– the purge-wrangler script worked flawlessly and the instructions were extremely simple. Much appreciated and thank you so much again!

My Mac wouldn't boot into macOS .  The way I resolved it was by running the following troubleshooting step command and now it works like a charm!

$ ./purge-wrangler.sh recover

I WANT this to work, but it's not really there yet for me.

2015 MBP, Dell 2415 q - screen work, card recognized, and it's listed in the display settings:  https://imgur.com/a/kM3l6   BUT it's not used if I run CineBench from the external display, and not showed as the active GPU in About :  https://imgur.com/a/TqtPv  

Any idea what I should do differently?

@jonashn Have you set the external monitor as the primary display?

Would appreciate it if people could test v2.0.0 (Pre-release) of the script - for those using older scripts (except maybe Mac mini 2012 users), it is better to use this once I mark it as "Latest Release" because it is a more "responsible" script and handles backup much better (besides tons of other changes).

Thank you so much for your hard work on this!

I have the 1.1.1 script working on my Mac Mini 2014 with Radeon Vega 64.  If I wanted to upgrade to the 2.0 script, how would I do that? 

Thank you again!

It is currently marked as pre-release on the Releases page. The link is in the main post (Press "here"). Please don't replace your script yet - pre-release is only for testing. Test on a different installation.
