Color calibration and Nightshift are both broken for me.

Updated: Downgraded to WebDriver-367.15.10.45f01.pkg and all is well again.

If Night Shift doesn't work on your monitor but turns the cursor yellow, here's a workaround for you. I accidentally found that after I turn the screen off with BetterTouchTool(stop gfx card sending signal to monitor) then turn it back on, Night Shift starts to work!!

The best solution for this problem is to stay with
WebDriver-367.15.10.45f01.pkg

Until nvidia releases a proper fix in their next update, stay with this driver as its compatible with 10.12.4 and even supports nightshift. If you had already installed the latest version(
378.05.05.05f01),
still you can downgrade it, just download this driver and start the installation, it will downgrade the driver and will give u a stable nvidia driver for 10.12.4 supporting nightshift.
Great - thanks for your help.
I reinstalled WebDriver 367.15.10.45f01.pkg - f.lux is now working again with my GTX 970 and 10.12.4.

No need to be sad anymore, folks. Nvidia just released a new driver and I can confirm it fixed this!!! Calibration and Night Shift now works!!!

Just update your drivers through the NVIDIA Driver Manager. The latest driver is:

378.05.05.05f02

Glad to be the bringer of good news. :)

Just to add that if I make changes to the Nigh Shift scheduling, etc. and I shut down, Night Shift won't start functioning unless I click any of these 'Tab' choices: Display, Color on my display properties. I would have to then restart my system twice to have it remain functioning. Weird but I've tested this.

Putting my system to sleep does not tamper Night Shift functions, though.
