Wait really? My 2016 13" MBP doesn't work. But I didn't run automate-eGPU.sh or Rastafabi’s eGPU enabler. Are you telling me that it will work after running that? No changes needed?

Well as per yifanlu first post I thought it was not possible to get pass via login screen ... but as per your screens it looks like it was fixed ?

Is this already a thing? I don't need eGPU acceleration, I just need the monitor to display the image thru the eGPU. Is it already possible?

I didn't do any extra steps. Just the NVIDIAEGPUSupport.kext in /Library/Extensions and rebuilt cache (a snippet from automate-eGPU.sh). What's your eGPU hardware?

It used to work this way, before macOS 10.13 High Sierra was released. 😉

So to get this straight, you only need to do yifanlu's step and this? "rebuilt cache (a snippet from automate-eGPU.sh)"

 

What's a snippet from automate-eGPU, is it a part of the script? I have a 1070 gaming box, if I do yifanlu's step from github, do I also need some part of automate-eGPU to get this to work?

I guess it should be the RebuildCaches function 😉 ... but I am waiting for confirmation as well ... I lost patience and downgrade to Sierra over weekend 😀

I have a 2016 MBP with touchbar running 1060 6GB on an HP OMEN Accelerator. It might also be because I've mucked around with the OS so much in testing and debugging the problem. I'll do a clean install when I get home and report back.

 

I've updated the code to support Tesla devices as well. Also I've posted a prebuild kext in the releases section.

Just had to pop in and say thanks! Compiled your driver, rebooted, and Boom. It just worked.

My Macbook Air (13-inch, 2017) with my homebrewed dock(Echo ExpressCard PRO to GDC Beast) With a GTX750ti just worked. Right out of the gate!

This escalated quick! Any chances NVIDIAEGPUSupport.kext works better with older Nvidia GPUs than 10-series?
