Umm, but is there an updated NVIDIAEGPUSupport for 10.13.4? Haven't seen one or am I missing something?

@fr34k & @devild are working on it.

and @mac_editor as well!
There's a lot that is connected here...

Ideally we'll have a script/installer that identifies your Mac + eGPU configuration then injects the necessary workarounds to make it "just work".

@itsage
currently on it.
I'll code as much as possible into my 
script

You read our minds. Already implemented automatic thunderbolt detection (thanks to @fr34k) and some other enhancements for purge-wrangler.sh (will mark as release later).

@mac_editor Patch applied successfully. Sadly eGPU is not enabled on my TB1 devices: mac mini late 2012 and mbp 17 late 2011. But i think it has to do something with gpu that i'm using: Radeon Pro WX 4100.

Tried applying automate-eGPU script on top. Don't do this. Kernel paniced and made system unbootable. Restored by copying AMD* kexts from another system.

"AMDGPUWrangler (from 10.13.3/4 B1) with an updated NVIDIAEGPUSupport for 10.13.4" 
Is it posible to provide this updated NVIDIAEGPUSupport for 10.13.4?
Cheers

PS: Ops, just saw that @fr34k & @devild are working on it. 🙂
Fingers crossed

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

Could people test the new version of the script (1.1.0)? Its not changing any patching and won't affect eGPU support, but is simply an improved and somewhat better written version. Download it here. The usage guide in the initial post does not apply to this new script as there are slight changes. To run it follow the instructions here. I want people to test this so that I can confirm I have a good foundation to develop any further "patching" - the nitty gritty.

Automate-eGPU.kext is for 10.13 only as the menu selection says. Reinstalling from the recovery (Command-R) won't wipe your personal files, just the S/L/E folder. A good way to start over if you don't have a Time Machine backup.

Add IOPCITunnelCompatible true into AMDBaffinGraphicsAccelerator personality (preferably by overriding from the codeless kext), rebuild caches and try again.

RX 560 activated this way as @punk.kaos said, why wouldn't others as well? They are both Baffin.

I had an issue with 1.0 where the TB1 patch didn't work, but he TB2 patch did.  I have a Mid-2013 Macbook Air with TB1.  I will test the 1.1 script and let you know.

Interesting, are you sure you typed in the correct option (for v1.0):

sudo ./purge-wrangler.sh patch tb1
