Strange, but when i entering

$ sudo ./purge-wrangler.sh

terminal says "Unsupported/Invalid version of thunderbolt or none provided."

Might it be cause i have a TB3?

Yes, you should only have read what's written at the top. There's the information on what you need to swap. Not execute the script. Your on TB3... It clearly states only TB1/2!

Is there a bounty/reward system for these efforts? If not, there needs to be.

Thanks for all these efforts and great solutions!

However, I have struggled a day and still cannot make the my GTX 1080 work on my 13" MBP 2016 TB3 with an Akitio Node Pro. It could not even be detected.

When I started earlier today, the newest package for 10.13.4 hasn't been released yet. I downgraded my system to 10.13.3 and tried both 17D102 and 17D47. None of them works.

1. Tested with automated script
2. Tested with manual installation
3. Tried directly install web driver and "webdriver.sh" to install driver
4. Tried both `csrutil enable --without kext` and `csrutil disable`

All the same... I cannot let my macbook recognize the card. Then I saw the newest package and tried the last time. This time I even erased my disk before upgrading to 10.13.4. Still... No luck... I am going to post all the information that I have, and hopefully someone can help me out. 

modelMacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
card: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080
eGpu: Akitio Node Pro

Thunderbolt is recognized as below:
```

Node Pro:

 

  Vendor Name: AKiTiO

  Device Name: Node Pro

  Vendor ID: 0x41

  Device ID: 0x30C

  Device Revision: 0x1

  UID: 0x0041951E585A2900

  Route String: 1

  Firmware Version: 23.1

  Port (Upstream):

  Status: Device connected

  Link Status: 0x2

  Speed: Up to 40 Gb/s x1

  Current Link Width: 0x2

  Link Controller Firmware Version: 0.26.0

  Port:

  Status: No device connected

  Link Status: 0x7

  Speed: Up to 40 Gb/s x1

  Current Link Width: 0x1

  Link Controller Firmware Version: 0.26.0
```

However, Graphic card is not detected. I can only see Intel Iris 550.

Do you mind updating the source code repo ? Last commit is from January ...

@SaddestGpu, I have a Node Pro as well, but an iMac Pro and I never got it to work with anything newer than the .104 driver.

You have to use the login hack though where you boot with the egpu disconnected, login, log out, plug in the TB3 cable, wait a few seconds then log back in.

The version 8 package (nVidia support on TB3) doesn't work for me either. nVidia drivers were updated, SIP disabled, package installed. On a MacBook Pro (2017) it simply kernel panics when plugging in the TB3 cable, regardless if it has been logged in before and logged out first or not.

I saw something in an earlier thread about replacing a kext, but not sure that applies to TB3 machines.

yes there is:
the kext swap for 1/2/3 (fully manual procedure)

but please read the instructions carefully!

EDIT: I got confused a) was only for AMD; changed that
