I tested the script, but I was unable to get it to work with my set up. I was curious if anyone had any luck with the Akitio Node 3 + Sapphire Nitro R9 390 8G + MacBook Pro 2012.

I am currently only getting the card to read as "display"  instead of the actual video card name in the "Graphics/Display". I am using and HDMI connection if that mattered at all. I'm pretty stumped. Any insight would be great. 

RX4/570 or better are natively supported. Have you patched the system for older AMD card?

text editor ? That appears to be a binary.

A text editor works fine for looking up "ioth" in this case. Please try and report back.

@brian_duchesneau The actual text is "IOTh" so grep -i would do better but nonetheless please share the binary with me privately.

Go to my profile, there should be a “send message” button. Hope we can resolve it 😉
