It'll install the most recent non-blacklisted driver, which at the moment is 378.10.10.10.25.106.

Presently only 387.10.10.10.25.156 and 387.10.10.10.25.157 are blacklisted - https://github.com/Benjamin-Dobell/nvidia-update/blob/master/BLACKLIST.

EDIT: By the way, it does output which driver it's installed.

You can also run it as often as you like and it'll only download drivers and make changes if necessary (unless you download the script and specifically run it with --force).

For example, at the moment, anyone already running 378.10.10.10.25.106 who runs the script will just see the following:

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

The latest driver revision is 378.10.10.10.25.106

378.10.10.10.25.106 is already installed.​
Hi - just tried the script in Terminal -it installed 123 or 125 on High Sierra 10.3.6. Now I get black screen and cant boot into High Sierra. I have Whatever Green and Lilu in my kext folder. Any ideas?

I'm running 10.14.4 Mojave hackintosh, ran your script and its apparently working.
  • Monitor is recognized
  • Running 144 Hz
I have distortion when using:
  • chrome
I have not installed the lilu or whatever kext because I don't really know how to do that. But after 1 reboot, I'm not seeing any problems.

Will update after using Blender, other GPU intensive apps.
UPDATE:
  • Unable to run Blender 2.8. Crashes every time I try to open it. If you can help, I can provide the error printout.

Anyone else able to run blender using a different GPU?
