    Only needed for imac15,1 imac17,1 and MacPro6,1 system definitions to avoid black screen. Current release version of NvidiaGraphicsFixup may also require NVWebDriverLibValFix. If you don't use NvidiaGraphicsFixup you don't need NVWebDriverLibValFix with these new web drivers.

    Latest version of NvidiaGraphicsFixup in development does not require NVWebDriverLibValFix either as the fix is included.

    SOB!!!

    I woke up this morning with a bunch of bright ideas on how to beat my BootLoop messed with a bunch of startup settings and booted and everything worked - Nvidia drivers loaded and working.....

    Now I can't figure out what I did and every subsequent reboot fails!!!

    Back to the drawing board.

    I was able to get the Nvidia drivers running under HS...once I changed the SIP it worked. Thanks! Great info here.

    The update added HiDPI that I didn't have before but I'm stuck at 30hz 4K resolution.

    Anyone getting 60hz?

    I do not use NVGFu.kext or AGDP patch, but needed to have NVWebDriverLibValFix. Just throwing it out there. It seems there are many strange variables involved.

    The first time I installed HS, I had the gIO blah blah loop. I removed the web drivers then booted back in and did the SIP trick to install the drivers again, same loop. Then I dropped NVWebDriverLibValFix into EFI/EFI/Clover/Kexts/other and it loaded with the Web Drivers working.

    The 2nd time I installed HS just to test, I already had NVWebDriverLibValFix loading from Clover and just installed the Web drivers with SIP enabled, rebooted without SIP - all good.

    For High Sierra, it seems to me, that AMD Radeon (RX 580) is the easiest way !!!
    Only 2 kext and everything works beautifully

    Hopefully the next Nvidia installer which should be out soon will be less problematic.
    The less kexts the better. Now will Vega 11 have credible driver support for our machines...

    I was finally able to update and get my 1070 going but the latest supplemental update to fix the password problem broke it again so beware.
