I am thinking of upgrading from ML to El Capitan.
Can I confirm that openCL works for you on 10.10 ?

If possible, please run Luxmark to check - just want to make sure openCL works, and its not just disabled.

FYI, this method also works for Yosemite! (I've tested it on 10.10.5)

The trick is to search for 100F6C3057413 and replace it with 100F6C3007413. After restart, all the OpenCL apps work like magic.

Thank you very much, MacAndor for sharing this method.

I'm not a programmer, just curious about why 100F6C3057413 is something equivalent to 'if (x & 5)'.

Could I confirm the status of GK110B cards with 10.9.5 ? With respect to both CUDA and openCL ? I hope that openCL no longer needs to be disabled :( I have to downgrade as I need some functionality in Cineform and FCP7 that is lost after 10.10
Thanks!

@riverini I have your same problem with Illustrator with the same kind of crash, did you find any solution, I am getting crazy Illustrator crash tons of times with GPU enabled (nvidia asus strix gtx 970, smbios mac pro 5.1).

I also patched the opencl in my Yosemite installation (10.10.5) thanks to @hyangyt hex value, now all the Opencl are disabled but Adobe Illustrator still crash.
