I just updated to High Sierra Security Update 2018-002 (running 10.13.6) without thinking and broke my Nvidia drivers. I'm on 387.10.10.10.40.105.

I don't see much about this update when searching the forum.

The update broke them for me, too. I uninstalled the drivers. Restarted. Installed them with the update-script again. Restarted. Everything back to normal. I think you have to do a clean install, since the patching without it doesn't quite work. That's my analysis at least.

I just updated to High Sierra Security Update 2018-002 (running 10.13.6) without thinking and broke my Nvidia drivers. I'm on 387.10.10.10.40.105.

Can anyone give me a hand? I ran the Script from post #1, but still no Nvidia drivers unfortunately. Is my only option to restore from Time Machine Backup?

EDIT: I am doing a fresh reinstall in the meantime to hopefully avoid having to do a restore from Time Machine.

Is there any guides I can follow to update the security updates 2018-002 through 004 (005 came out today) without breaking Nvidia drivers? I don't see much about this update when searching the forum.

According this post #122 it should work.
Maybe 387.10.10.15.15.108 is the way to go, since it's for the newer 17G2307 (exclusive for 2018 MacBook Pro)
Although with Security Update 2018-002 High Sierra it's now 17G3025
I'm also interested someone with success could make a short note on the steps regarding Nvidia Drivers and latest 10.13.6 Security Updates.

Given the recent issues with official nVidia web driver releases (namely 387.10.10.10.25.156 and 387.10.10.10.25.157), I decided to put together a dead simple one-stop solution for updating to the latest reliable nVidia web drivers.

It's called nvidia-update and hopefully makes life easier for you guys.

Execution

Simply paste the following line in a terminal:

bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Benjamin-Dobell/nvidia-update/master/nvidia-update.sh)

You can of course download/save the script to your computer if you prefer to, doing so gives you access to a couple of advanced options, but for normal use they're not required.

Clover / Boot Configuration

The script doesn't mess with any boot behaviour on your system, and Clover setup is left up to you. You'll likely want the following kernel extensions installed in your EFI Clover kext directory:

This worked for me as well - first had to delete the driver, then reinstall and patch; worked beautifully.

Same here. updated and forgot the Nvidia driver.
So I uninstalled, rebooted and run the script.
Unfortunately I got a blank screen after installing and rebooting.
I fixed that by coping Lilu and Whatevergreen in EFI/clover/kexts/other

now everything works perfect!
thanks again for this life saver script :headbang:

I've got a brand new Hackintosh, running a brand new install of OS 10.11.6 (15G22010). I'm ready to try to get my GeForce 970 GTX running. I've read that the best plan is to download and install the nVidia drivers and CUDA first, and THEN install the GPU into the machine. Does your script eliminate this necessity? I tried uninstalling the GPU ... and then I couldn't get any sort of display on my monitor while connected to either the motherboard DVI or VGA connections. I panicked, and was afraid I had killed everything. I reinstalled the GPU, hooked it up with the DVI connections, and everything is back to normal. How do you recommend I proceed? Thanks!
