Is this a light at the end of the tunnel for a non-external, software only, patching method to swap out the NVM on our built in Titan Ridge chips?? Potentially??Osy86's Thunderbolt patcher (tbpatch) tool is awesome, but it won't work out of the box. We first need to configure and install the TbtOnPch SSDT, reboot, ensure that Thunderbolt Bus appears, and then run the patcher to modify the Thunderbolt chip. On an Alpine Ridge system, you might wonder why it's even necessary to flash the firmware when an SSDT will do the job! @Elias64Fr has a fully working Thunderbolt Bus on his Asus
Maximus X HeroMaximus IX Extreme (with on-board Alpine Ridge). Firmware flashing is not necessarily required for on-board Alpine Ridge controllers.
Correction: Elias has Maximus IX Extreme.
