Nvidia Web Driver updates for El Capitan (UPDATE 07/11/2018)

That's just what I was referring to. It downloads all right, but patching the driver results in spinning beachball... MKL lets one to edit plist easily inside the kext and makes sure the permissions are set correctly.

Can you give me a patched NVDAStartupWeb.kext by NVIDIA Web Drivers Updater.app? thanks

It never produces one nowadays, but I'll need to see about that after I've installed the security update...

So i would change the NVDAStartupWeb.kext .plist by hand! I always do that with an .plist editor (even Textedit would work).

Simple copy that .kext to desktop, Finder show content, open .plist and edit the .plist.

Then use some kext install utility to install that changes .kext from desktop to /S/L/E. ( i use Kextwizard, old but good).

After that, the prelinked kernel  automatically should have been updated (newer time date than before) , but can take up to 1 Min after finishing the util/kext install.

That's just what I do, but as an editor I like to use aforementioned MKL... Let's see what happens when i have the time to tinker.

 

IDK what negative impact by doing these; except "invalid signature". But on 10.11.6 (15G1502) NVIDIA WebDriver-346.03.15f07 just loaded & it works.  :)

Thanks for that pic, there's all the info I need :)

Works also with 15G1602 (Security Update Developer Beta 2017-003)

 

Yeah, still has no sign for Pascal support under 10.11.6 though.. and since 10.13 Dev release is near (on June), I'm not sure but who know?  :lol:

If only I could try Sierra, but my Mini isn't new enough...

After foolishly installing latest apple update  :wallbash: to 10.11.6 (15G1611)

 

build 15G1510 is no longer compatible...

 

I get this error when trying to reinstall:

 

Mac OS X version is not compatible

 

Mac OS X version 10.11.6 (15G1611) is not supported with this package. Please see NVIDIA’s website for further driver information.

Just wait for new Web driver official release from Nvidia then...  :lol:

Ouch!

 

Anyway, crisis averted. Managed to rollback using Time Machine backup. Now all good.

 

Other El Capitan updaters beware! Nvidia web drivers are not supported after 15G1611 update!

Didn't work with NVIDIA Quadro FX1800 WebDriver: WebDriver-346.03.15f01.pkg (15G31), any how to fix it?

 

I set nvda_drv=1 with both Injected Nvidia or not

It seems there is no WebDriver update for 10.11.6 with security patch 2017-004 available yet.
For those of you who would like to patch NVDAStartupWeb.kext for the time being the new build number is: 15G17023

WebDriver-346.03.15f01.pkg not working after the latest security update. El Capitan 10.11.6 (15G17023) 31/10/2017 (Not compatible)

Hope a fix comes quick! Why is Apples default driver from way back in 01/07/2016, version GeForce 10.10.14 310.42.25f02?

The WebDrivers are pinned to a single macOS build number.
Until there is an official update you can replace Info.plist below this path with the attached version:

/System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents

This invalidates the signature of the WebDriver but will work as long as loading unsigned kexts is allowed.

Before booting with the patched WebDriver rebuilding the kernel cache is required.

The WebDrivers should be functional again now.

Hello

 

We've had one mac update automatically and had to apply the latest web driver 346.03.15f10 on 15G17023. The issue now is that we can't use GPU rendering via Cinema 4D and Octane as it constantly crashes. Is there any way to rollback to 15G1611? 

 

I've tried to install the earlier web driver 346.03.15f09 but that didn't end well!

 

I've tried to install several versions of cuda and all still crash octane.

 

Any ideas would be great please as don't really want to reinstall el captain and all of the apps (I should have made a time machine backup).

346.03.15f10 works also fine with 10.11.6 (15G18013) - Security Update Developer Beta 2017-005.

(Mini late 2009, dunno why I keep on installing these...)

The driver may work fine, but NVIDIA's installer doesn't work for 15g18013. Does anyone know of a fix or manual installation procedure?

 

I updated from 10.11.3 to 10.11.6, updated the web drivers, and everything still worked fine *until* the security update (which brought me to 15G18013). Now I can only boot the OSX driver (i.e. nv_disable=1). I've tried patching the info.plist via Xcode with the later build number, but that didn't work, either. Thanks!

 

Update: I extracted the new bundles and kexts with Pacifist, loaded with Kext Wizard, rebuilt cache, replaced the info.plist file with the one above, and then with one modified for 15G18013 but still not working 100%. At least now, with nv_disable, f10 is showing up and the performance is okay-ish. Enough to keep tinkering... but will probably just clean install Sierra after all!

      This build is compatible up to Big Sur Beta
      Now Compatible with macOS 11 Please leave feedback with issues or w/o Comitted to Updating up to OS 11 Latest Release Notes
      Fixed Bluetooth and Wifi Stability Issues Improved Preformance and Power Managements Can Provide Files for Display Overrides Additional Patches for 4K Display updated for Big Sur if using unsupported wifi card disable it in bios use config.plist FIXED SLEEP WAKE BUG Exact same functionality as Catalina What Works / Does Not
      Everything works minus in-built mic Some displays may be detected as 40hz (working on fix) Notes
      Never tested USB C over Display Output, everything else works flawlessly USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) POST
      run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 If no mouse, install all voodoo kexts using Kext Utility Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other. BIOS Setup
      Disable Secure Boot INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
      Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup. To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete. You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw Boot Entry Setup
      Due to the fact this BIOS is locked down pretty heavily, reccomended to use Windows to find a free tool to add UEFI boot entries Messages and Facetime
      Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support. Headphones and Audio
      All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio no internal mic Credits
      MaLd0n for DSDT Patches (HUGE SHOUTOUT) Original Kext Authors Clover Team Finished!

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?
       
      CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X

      Greetings!
       
      So I managed to get a Catalina 10.15 vm up and running in ESXi 6.7u2.
      When I try to install Catalina updates, however, it goes to the Apple logo, status bar moving ever so slightly, reboots again and this time hangs on the Apple logo.  To fix this, I either remove or disable "Mac OS" as an option in the bootloader. Is there a way to get these updates to install? 
       
      In the meantime...
       
      I instead of restarting Catalina after choosing to update it, I shutdown the guest.  After a restart it SEEMED to update with the time duration countdown.
       
      Prior to this I did run disk utility and checked Untitled and Untitled-Data for errors (I don't think it found any).
       
      So I just logged back onto the VM and the version is still 10.15 and NOT 10.15.2 as hoped. So weird.
       
      Any ideas?
