The Samsung PM981 has the same problem and has been out for over a year with no "fix" to be found. Personally, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a fix for this either.
At least Samsung fixed the exploding phone batteries in the Galaxy Note whatever version. That took a long time and they lost a lot of money too. They are such a large company that I don't think fixing NVMe SSD firmware is that high on their priority list. I could be wrong though.

Just to update that I have been using 970EVO Plus for a month now and it works great! I'm using OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi. Previously not working properly (KP) with AptioMemoryFix.efi. Have anyone tried this?

Those who have problems with the 970 EVO Plus have reported that even having an empty 970 EVO Plus installed will cause kernel panics.

You can try mhafeez's method (post #62) to see if it helps....

Hey. Say with this disk 970 EVO Plus system is fully working? Do not panic and reboot?

I’ll look into it. Isn’t there an easier way to force the os to ignore hardware, though?
