Dude how do you get the 1080 to work , no matter what fix or kext I use I can’t get my 1070 to work on 10.12 Sierra . I even tried your guide and nothing when I boot with nvidia web drivers my screen stays black and I can’t load , but when I use nv_disable=1 I can boot into my system but not with my drivers
