What Hrutkay says is true, in fact I told him this. I hadn't realized it was causing issues on the MCP79 machines until it was brought to my attention. You can still use it on nVidia MCP79-based machines, but there is about a 30% chance it will brick your machine, so please use with caution. It also takes an extremely long time on these systems for some reason (45+ minutes in some cases), so be patient if you do decide to use it. If a brick does occur, it can be restored only by using an external EEPROM programmer.Well, firstly, @dosdude1 announced the APFS ROM Patcher on his twitter account about 18months ago. It's also here on his YT channel:and also downloadable from his website here http://dosdude1.com/apps/APFS ROM Patcher.zip
and he also announced it in post 3564 in the High Sierra on unsupported macs thread (https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/macos-high-sierra-10-13-unsupported-macs-thread.2048478/post-26102912)
So no, you haven't seen anything from dosdude on the subject.
I don't have an "issue", thank you very much. I was considering installing an SSD and applying the APFS ROM patch - as has been discussed many times on this thread, but clearly you've never seen such discussions. I just find it strange that @dosdude1 hasn't mentioned the same specific warnings as "the guy", whose video I just happened to run across today. I'm not saying I don't believe the guy, but I'd actually prefer to hear it from @dosdude1 himself.
