What's that ? Im using "OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi" not "2" and it's pretty much not breaking anything (MSI-Z97).

 

You can either use one or the other just the matter you have at least one of them. V2 is a simplified version of the first one.
It has to do with Aptio Bioses support for Clover, be my guest try and remove this, you'll be stuck at boot.

Last Version of the WebDriver  367.10.10.05b01 --> build 16A286a (ver2) for Developer 5 makes trouble with METAL (GMxxx Maxwell chipsets) You need to disable Transparecy under "accessibility" "reduce transparency"

 

If any body knows new Drivers with CUDA support please tell ...

@Pavo : without DataHubDxe-64.efi i can't see any 'mac' at boot, only windows. I tried with :

- VBoxHfs-64.efi
- PartitionDxe-64.efi
- OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi
- OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi
- FSInject-64.efi

But still remaining the nvram prob.
I think isn't a clover problem...

@Doublepranks i run an Asus Z97i (Mini Itx)

Try disabling EmuVariableUEFI - don't think you need it with most EFI boards...

That's weird... I am using driver 367.10.10.05b01 (the latest, and the same driver released for PB3) on PB4 (16A286a) with no issue... I wonder why you guys are having issues and are seeing new drivers...

Public Beta build (mine) is 16A284a, I think 16A286a is the Developer Preview build. Using the "DP4 & PB3" drivers work for me, the "DP5 & PB4" driver doesn't.

How curious! I'm definitely running public beta, 16A286a, but it wouldn't be too surprising if Apple released different revisions (maybe different revisions for different SMBIOS?).

 

Attached File  publicbetaproof.jpg   93.43KB   4 downloads

 

I just downloaded both versions of the driver from the front page, unpacked them and:

claes2:~ claes$ diff -r /Users/claes/Downloads/WebDriver-367.10.10.05b01.16A270f /Users/claes/Downloads/WebDriver-367.10.10.05b01.16A286a

Common subdirectories: /Users/claes/Downloads/WebDriver-367.10.10.05b01.16A270f/NVPrefPane and /Users/claes/Downloads/WebDriver-367.10.10.05b01.16A286a/NVPrefPane
claes2:~ claes$ diff -qr /Users/claes/Downloads/WebDriver-367.10.10.05b01.16A270f /Users/claes/Downloads/WebDriver-367.10.10.05b01.16A286a
claes2:~ claes$

The difference, if one exists (diff says there is none), between the driver revisions shouldn't matter as they're both prepared for "16A" in general according to NVDAStartupWeb.kext (both have same GetInfoString and ShortVersion, too):

Wonder what could've broke for so many of you between the two revisions...

How curious! I'm definitely running public beta, 

BOTH 16A284a and 16A284a are BETAS!

To Be CLEAR:

160284A is Public Beta 4
160286A is Developer Preview 5.

For those of us with GTX 750 Ti Cards it seems that the latest drivers will load for the Developer Preview but there are a lot of issues, They will not load however on The Public Beta and on reboot default or Mac OSX drivers

I'm not a developer, I'm running a public beta :

 

Beta 10.12 (16A286a)

Are you running into any glitch aside from the ones you've sorted out?

Interesting thing: my secondary monitor got screwed up colors after the 10.12 update. Worked fine in 10.11, works fine in W10… Tried a different cable, different port from the graphics card… Other monitor works just fine (in both ports and with both cables). Weeeeirdest thing. Basically, blues are yellows, yellows are blues, and reds are blues too… It's like my red channel got screwed up! :X SOO WEIRD! I tried checking the accessibility option to invert colors, but it's not it: whites and blacks are not inverted. I also tried switching to a different color profile… No help!

 

Any idea? Anybody running into similar issues?

 

PS: When booting with nv_disable=1 (aka no Nvidia driver), colors are perfectly fine! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Source? As you can see from my screenshot, Mac App Store says I've downloaded the public beta.

 

I am aware of there being a difference between the developer and public betas, but my post was more concerned with the fact that some PB4 users are having issues with PB4/DP5* drivers that they weren't having with PB3, while it appears that the drivers are identical between PB3/DP4 and PB4/DP5 (well, at least the drivers linked to by the OP). It would not seem related to the OS as these cards didn't work without the drivers in any case, which makes me curious as to where these issues are occurring (in non-NVRAM cases where a user's card was working in PB3/DP4, at least).

 

*I am also aware that these are likely different revisions, just want to connote that the nvidia driver release is the same for both the developer and public betas that were released together. :)

I am with 750ti and the default is always web drivers, i had problem with glitches and it was fixed by enabling reduce transparency under system pref->accessibility 

I can watch youtube / MKV etc. but not working with editing SW like resolve and others that using CUDA because CUDA still not working in 10.12

Alright, downloaded and installed latest pkg just fine while still on 16A284a build (PB4 with "PB3 drivers") then downloaded and installed PB5, all appears peachy.

 

Off topic; this OS phones home a LOT!

It's not a new version that released from nvidia, so basically no. Mods should clearly express that they are patching same version in order to making current driver compatible with new os builds. It can prevent misleadings.

They're not patching the same version. It is the same version.

 

I downloaded the "latest" driver from the link in the first post a little earlier and compared it to the one I downloaded two weeks ago. It's the exact same pkg file. The hashes match.

I didn't even think of doing that! Thanks.

Which begs the question why so many PB3 users are having troubles with PB4...
