    Pre Update Notes:
    - This update may break some of your Sierra functions, like audio and the nVidia Web drivers. Make sure you backup first.:thumbup:

    - If you're using nVidia drivers for your GeForce GTX 750, 750Ti, 960, 970, 980, 980 Ti and the Titans 'Maxwell' graphics cards, you'll need to install the nVidia 10.12.2 Web driver(s) after the 10.12.2 update. If you have one of these Maxwell graphics cards, you can use the Nvidia 10.12 Beta driver linked in Post #1 until Nvidia updates it's Sierra driver. See the tonymacx86 Driver List for the latest versions of the Nvidia drivers.

    - No support for GTX 1070/1080 graphics cards, yet. Awaiting the updated driver.

    - For Samsung 950 M.2 NVMe SSD owners) You will need to await the update of RehabMan's patcher script and installation instructions.

    Update Procedure(s)

    Here's the step by step way to update for those who aren't using the nVidia Maxwell graphics cards. For nvidia Maxwell card users, see below
    :ch: Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
    :ch: Download the Software Update or Combo Update and run it to update to 10.12.2 - the updater will reboot upon completion;
    :ch: Upon rebooting into Sierra, you can:
    :ch: Check to see if your audio is working (If you enabled Realtek on-board audio using MultiBeast v9.0.1 or toleda's CloverALC120 script, your audio should be OK),
    :ch: (Optional) Update to the latest version of Clover,
    :ch: (Optional) Check to see if your TRIM setting has survived through the update (About this Mac > System > System Report > NVMExpress or SATA/SATA Express) - if not, use the "trimforce" Terminal command (1); if you've used the "trimforce" command in 10.11.0, then it should "survive" the update, but check to make sure; and
    :ch:Re-boot​
    :ch: (Optional for Samsung 950 M.2 NVMe SSD owners) You will need to await the update of RehabMan's patcher script and installation instructions.​

    For Nvidia Maxwell graphic cards users (see 2nd and 3rd note above), you'll need to do the following once the Nvidia web driver is released for 10.12.2:
    :ch: Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
    :ch: (Optional for Samsung 950 M.2 NVMe SSD owners) See the Notes above on RehabMan's patch-nvme.
    :ch: Download the Software Update or use the MAS update.
    :ch: Download the latest Nvidia web driver for 10.12.1 (when available).
    :ch: Run the Sierra 10.12.1 Mac App Store Update - the updater will reboot upon completion;
    :ch: Upon rebooting, run the Nvidia web driver pkg and reboot when its completed it's installation.​


    Please post help requests in the Sierra Desktop Support Forum section (not in this thread).


    1 Use the new Terminal trimforce command in the following manner:
    Code (Text):
    sudo trimforce enable

    C'mon Nvidia. I remember when 10.12.1 launched, it took Nvidia around 12 hours to release the web driver package so maybe by tomorrow morning we might have Pascal support.

    I've resigned myself to the knowledge that if it doesn't come with the next release then its never coming.

    Nervous, but I'm about to do it! Wish me luck!

    EDIT: update went fine, nothing broken but NVIDIA web drivers. Simply downloaded the beta from this thread, rebooted and everything was working just as before...

    Any updates on AMD support? The betas contained mentions of new drivers, and so does this main post, but what's the difference in practice.

    Does it support the RX 480 properly now?
