A quick update:
The script has worked for my system. Now a few test runs on different systems are necessary to check for hidden bugs. I hope nothing pops up.
In the meantime I'll write the documentation. Legacy check will be in it soon for those that used my old script or the step by step solution by @goalque

Just wanted to chime in with a success story using the script as it stands today:

2016 MBP with Touchbar --> Zotac Amp Box Mini --> GTX 1050 --> External display

When I first started I got "black external screen with movable cursor", but a log-out-log-in cleared that up. The only last hiccup I've got is the EGPU menu is giving me "Disconnect "(null)"" which is certainly not a dealbreaker for me.

Thanks for the hard work folks! 🍻

@philw It’s a good thing Netkas & MVC are finally providing an eGPU solution for Macs. It’s a lot of work and as a business they need to get paid. Their approach is different than ours in that the modifications take place in one graphics card to work with compatible Macs. Our approach modifies your Mac to work with all compatible graphics cards.

I agree! Big thank you for all the people involved for the amazing job!
I understand that it might be troublesome to set up a way to donate... but if there is no other way, maybe you could agree on a charity ppl could donate to, if they really want? 🙂

Just a thought...

I agree, this is a good thing. People can choose what they like.

EFI hack can also stop working at any time, along with a new firmware update from Apple.

Apple's EFI implementation lacks driver signing and secure boot that are part of UEFI 2.x standard. Option ROMs can be executed without any signatures, and from any media (USB flash disk, EFI partition etc). I guess MVC/Netkas try to maximize the profit by writing the ROM image into card's EEPROM chip. If this approach bypasses Apple's Thunderbolt layers, is it hot-pluggable?

An interesting article about Apple's firmware security:

Hello and kind regards from Switzerland.

I am not a native speaker so please excuse any humble expression... I am pretty new to all this Thunderbolt and eGPU stuff but I read almost everything available in here before I decided to register. I am owning a late 2013 MBP (one TB2 connection port) which is running in 10.13.4. My eGPU enclosure is a Razer Core (TB3 connection by using a TB3 to TB2 adapter). Inside the enclosure I am using a NVIDIA EVGA GTX 980 TI formerly used within a Mac Pro. Following all instructions provided in here I managed to get the enclosure recognized by the system (Core not "unsupported") using the TB3/TB2 wrangler script (latest version). I tried all of this with all devices detached from my MBP. I am using an additional DVI connection Cinema Display (quite an old one). I've been installing the script contents always withe the eGPU Razer enclosure detached. The system recognized the box AFTER connecting the TB-cables and the enclosure, no matter if the graphics card was installed or not, no matter if the Cinema Display was connected to my MBP, the eGPU or being unattached to the complete setup.

Now what is happening:

Using the enclosure unattached to my MBP it boots up (while it takes some more time than before). Shutting down the MBP and connecting the enclosure (no matter if the card is installed or not) the MBP refuses to boot, not even the Apple logo or the status bar is shown, just the fans of the MBP are howling, black screen. Re-booting with the enclosure not attached showed the logo and the status bar but the MBP refuses to boot to the end. I had to recover my system several times by now.

Im pretty confused by now! The enclosure gets recognized, but not the card installed after connecting the box to the already booted Mac OS X. The first time I used this script the little CPU symbol appeared in the menu bar but disappeared after rebooting. Already had a hard time in command R, command Shift and else, What I do not get: When has the enclosure to be connected, deconnected, will the whole system boot at all when this eGPU setup is attached from the very start?

Thanks for any helpful reply!

This is normal your Razer Core uses a T82 USB-C controller. But fear not. The script I'll post quite soon will have a solution for you too.

Oh thank You a lot in advance! I did not expect this chip setup being this different  🙄  Nevertheless I am hoping the new FCP 10.4.2 version will accept my setup somehow. Thanks for all Your work!

We've reached the point that I've released the pre-alpha I wasn't able to integrate the temporary script yet. I hope I can get that out in a few hours.

@fr34k, The part that is still missing is about undoing the temporary fix stuff before applying the new patch?

If I undo all modifications and start from scratch, will It work as intended?

It may not be related to eGPU, but I have a question.
Is it possible to hack the kext or Nvidia driver and set YUV420 when outputting HDMI?

Windows boot with MBPr2012 (GT650M) I heard that 4K60Hz is possible with YUV420,
but I would like to have the same experience with macOS..  🙂

I stupidly updated with the latest security update, and the Nvidia drivers 387.10.10.30.103 are not compatible with it.  Is there a later version of the Nvidia drivers already available that is compatible?

Yes, a native one .107
Or you can choose the one you like by using my script. (fr34k's macOS-eGPU.sh)

Syntax would be as follows:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/learex/macOS-eGPU/master/macOS-eGPU.sh) --install --nvidiaDriver 387.10.10.30.103

Hmmm....

Meanwhile I had to reinstall the complete system, my Time Machine Backups did not work anymore. So I had the chance to test this within a completely new setup. Following Your instructions I disabled SIP, detached all devices and ran the script. I connected  my Razer (card installed) when asked and unconnected it when asked. As far as I can see the script did install everything needed. Afterwards my MacBook booted as expected, the NVDIA menu bar symbol appeared and also the CPU symbol (Cut connection to "Null"). Connecting the Razer in booted status the system recognized the box but not the card (external Cinema Display not connected in any way). It also did not recognize the card when connecting the Cinema Display to the MacBook Pro or the Razer. When rebooting the system with the Razer connected the screen(s) stay black and the fans are howling like mad. No status bar, no boot chime. Re-booting with the Razer unconnected works like expected...

you did run the script twice, no? It was needed once to unlock and once for the NVIDIA installations. If "null" appears that's fine. Go into your system info and see if it's recognised correctly. (Hardware -> Graphics and Displays)
A whole list of tweaks is available in the initial post.

I did run it twice - resulting in the already described symptoms... In the meantime I tried to uninstall the script without noteable effort, the CPU icon disappeared but the NVDIA driver menu icon still resides there, Razer box recognized, card not. The system preferences are reflecting the drivers and the CUDA panel. I am thinking of re-installing a newer Time Machine backup hopefully not faulty. But maybe I just got that parameter thing wrong, I am not very terminal savvy, sorry 🙁 Even too dump to leave screenshots in here...

mom, you're using an apple cinema Display on an NVIDIA GPU?
-> Won't work, and here's why: The display needs a thunderbolt (!) connection not an mini Display Port. NVIDIA GPUs don't have a thunderbolt port.
Try HDMI or DP instead.

Well, time to get myself another adapter, I suppose... Nevertheless, is the card itself only recognized when a display in general is attached? I tried all this with the display attached and unattached, to my MBP and the Razer... Rats, I sometimes miss the days of the good old Mac Plus...

system information -> Hardware -> Graphics and Displays, does it display the correct name of your GPU?

If you want you can also paste my script's output here when you execute this (eGPU and displays connected):
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/learex/macOS-eGPU/master/macOS-eGPU.sh) --checkSystem

this would provide me with sufficient info.

Thanks. But I do have bad news. OpenCL (which FCPX uses) won't work due to the NVIDIA dGPU (maybe you are an exception but odds are low).
@mac_editor still does research in this area but it's unknown if something can be done.

BUT: you may be able to use Metal to accelerate FCPX. So, one thing there is: The drivers weren't properly loaded. This seems to be an NVIDIA dGPU issue.
Please hot plug during boot process and tell me if system information -> Hardware -> Graphics and Displays displays the correct name of your card.

If not there are still a few things to try...

750M seems to be problematic, @philw also reported "Nvidia Chip Model". Meaning no acceleration at all.

Well, there is a "tiny" problem: Before using Your script the Apple logo appeared, the status bar showed up and then the login window flashed up.
Now the login window shows up very early and THEN the status bar loads.... I tried it many times by now connecting the Razer while booting. Whenever I am connecting the cable the system halts.
