    Just saw this pop up in the App Store. Anyone know the build number or if Nvidia drivers are working? Any other issues?

    Build is (16G1212) - Not sure about the web drivers (I don't use them) but they usually follow fairly soon.

    I´ve not recognized any NVIDIA-driver update for 10.12.6 so far. But I would hardly recommend to wait until NVIDIA provides a driver update, before installing Apples security update.

    I had kernel panic during boot, didn't check it yet. I'm in safe mode.

    I don't know if your kernel panic is related, but I noticed that the eGPU "hack" I was running caused a kernel panic when the Lilu kext tried to load, this was back on the Developer Beta release of this patch. Now that the final is out, it seems the behavior hasn't changed. Are you running that kext by chance?

    kernel panic for me too on hd530, from what i can modestly understand in the crash log it may be related to lilu kext. had a recent backup image so restored, wasn't having any luck with boot options but never tried unchecking inject intel now that i think about it. not sure if that may have let it boot.

    I just applied the update, Kernel Panic, restarted in single user, removed Lilu kext and rebooted OK.
    Had to set SMBIOS to iMac13,1 from iMac15,1 will work on this later for now back up.
