@ed_co Not sure what corrupted means. If you updated macOS, no patch should exist.

Finally, I could uninstall from Mojave with fr34k's script and I did a simple guide:

Guide to uninstall nVidia eGPU software with fr34k's script in Mojave (at the end of the first post).

Could be useful for anyone who wants to uninstall everything once you updated to Mojave (as it doesn't support directly).

I put into my signature's guide to have it in a place easy to find instead of a simple post anywhere...

Please, feel free to correct and improve it. Thanks!!

Hey there,

is it possible to tell yet how safe (or unsafe and incredibly stupid) it would be, attempting this under a more recent MacOS version such as 10.14.2?
(I'm aware it’s risky anyways but since it explicitly says „10.13.X<=10.13.6“ I thought it might be wise to ask first before frying my MacBook)

Would like to attempt on:
MacBook Pro 15“ 2016 (max available configuration) running macOS 10.14.2
+ sonnet breakaway box 650
+ 1070ti gaming oc 8gb

(asking instead of just waiting for a compatible update since the last github commit was in August...)

It won't work since there's no web drivers for nvidia cards on 10.14+

I now read about the whole mess with web drivers...
so it would seem the only way to get this running is reverting back to 10.13.6 somehow?

I'm relatively new to all this; so forgive me if I missed the answers to my question(s) in the previous 21 pages...

but I did run this script successfully with my Mac Pro 2013, connected via TB2 adapter to a razer TB3 box w/AMD RX580.

I believe - from reading this thread - that if I update to Mojave (10.14.2) then this script would have issues  because there are no web drivers for nVidia.

However, I don't need those drivers with my AMD card. So if I DO update to Mojave, and then run the script, will it work anyway? Or fail due to the nVidia driver thing?

I guess my main question is; Is there currently a way to get the script to work on Mojave with an AMD RX580 card?

Or do I wait until there is some kind of official update to the script on GitHub?

Yeah, since you have a 2016 MBP you should be able to reinstall macOS high seirra using the "Shift-Option-Command-R" macOS recovery option.

@ed_co @mac_editor

This error is due to the patch itself. The patch consists of several changes and by updating macOS some files were changed from the original state and therefore the patch as a whole would not work. The script detects that and requests, that you either repair it or remove it before doing anything else. Otherwise there would be remains left untreated.

I'm writing a new one that handles several things differently. However, due to my severe lack of time, I cannot even say when it will be finished. I hope around Christmas I will find some time to do it. In there I will implement logging and a few more intelligent handlers. I guess I will also remove or improve some automatic handlers as they seem to be very version specific.

@ed_co I understand that an uninstall should not be version locked, however, a system update may change some plists in such a way, that the standard is not as before. I will try to circumvent some of those issues in version 2.0. I have learned a lot of how Apple and NVIDIA are handling things, and also how systems behave. I hope I can make a better one that isn't as clunky as the current one and with the future in mind. Nevertheless, I want to make one, with which one cannot break one's system unless the safety switches are turned off.

Conclusively, the thing I need is time and/or NVIDIA and Apple putting aside their differences and collaborating on a system that everyone loves and that works right out of the box, making me obsolete.

P.S: @ed_co I'm sorry I didn't answer sooner, I'm currently very low on any spare time.

@fr34k, nothing to apologize. You have limited time and I appreciate your efforts.
First, this script is really good, not clunky, and at the end I could uninstall, so don't worry. Everything is OK.
Sad thing is, I hope I will not use it in a long time as I changed to AMD. Tomorrow I will receive my new card.
Thanks for your hard work!!!

I'm running 10.13.6 (17G4015) and I get the "Your system has not yet been approved" message...am I reading your post correctly in assuming that the script does not yet work on any 10.13.6 installations newer than build 17G65??

If that's the case, I don't have a problem backing things up and doing a fresh OS install if it means getting my Nvidia card to work.

Thank you again for all your hard work!!

@fr34k

Thank you for responding. Went to page 20 and found the solution. Script seems to have run perfectly and it downloaded the Nvidia drivers and they were installed, and while macOS is recognizing the AORUS Gaming Box...it's not recognizing the GTX 1070 card that's inside it.

Good Day @fr34k is there a version 2.0 with support for 10.14.2 (18C54) yet?

I really appreciate your work and hoping that there is a new script soon.

Regards...
