Dunno if this stuff had already been posted, if yes plz delete this thread mods! Ty!

Check here: https://github.com/rgov/Thunderbolt3Unblocker

This project provides a kernel extension that unblocks unsupported Thunderbolt 3 peripherals (such as the Razer Core) on macOS.

This accomplishes the same goal as KhaosT's TB3 Enabler, which works by patching IOThunderboltFamily on disk. This kernel extension performs the patch in memory and on-the-fly.

Note there is likely a reason why IOThunderboltFamily considers a peripheral unsupported in the first place. Use at your own peril.

Up!

Is this tool have been already discussed along the others MacOS tools to force the TB3?
This one claim to allow compatibility with some enclosures as the Razer Core, that was not compatible, if i'm not mistaking?

@wimpzilla this should help Thunderbolt 3 enclosures that have the TI82 controller. macOS Sierra and High Sierra block this particular controller. The few I recall are Razer Core V1, AKiTiO Thunder3, and early production PowerColor Devil Box.

Thx u a lot for the precision.

Was just to know if this tool is still relevant for the cited enclosures or was something old.
Maybe users get something already better than this on the forum.
Feel free to add it to the right thread and delete this one, since i have no experience on MacOS i really did not known where to post this.

Hope it will help owners of these enclosures or to test it if it works.
