Installing GeForce Kepler patcher for NVIDIA GeForce GTX600/GTX700, GTX TITAN/GTX TITAN BLACK and Quadro K series cards under macOS Monterey 12.0.1 or later

 

If you installed macOS Monterey 12.0.1 or later but still use NVIDIA GeForce GTX600/700 series (with an exception of GTX 750Ti which is based on Maxwell), GTX TITAN/GTX TITAN BLACK or Quadro K series, which were previously supported up to macOS Monterey 12.0.1 beta 6, but are not supported in newer betas and final version, you need to follow this guide.

 

Thankfully our flashed cards can boot macOS even without any drivers support. GeForce Kepler patcher is restoring genuine NVIDIA drivers from Monterey beta into Monterey final bringing back full support for Kepler based NVIDIA cards.
