MBPMid2010_GPUFix is an utility program that allows to fix MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) intermittent black screen or loss of video. The algorithm is based on a solution provided by user fabioroberto on MacRumors forums.

The utility is based on Qt Framework and only available on OSX.

What is this GPU bug ?
MacBook Pro's from Mid-2010 (MacBook6,2) suffers from GPU issues. This is a known problem from Apple. Basically, a kernel panic is triggered randomly while using the computer.

What is the solution ?
A software fix as been found by fabioroberto on this thread.
My software provides an automated way to apply this fix.

Also, do not hesitate to star my Github if this fix worked for you ! :)

Unfortunately I couldn't try on Sierra.
Are you getting an error when executing the software ? Can you tell me what's happening ?
Thanks.

It talks about disabling System Integrity Protection.

I know elsewhere you mentioned creating a bootable USB drive and running terminal commands from there. Not Sure I fully understood the processes. I'd rather not brick the darn thing :)

You can see FAQ of the project for more information about SIP and how to disable it.
Or : when when the pop-up appears, juste clic on the button "Take me to tutorial" button to jump right into a YouTube tutorial.

Do you re- enable the SIP after running your app?
No, there is no way for an application to access this setting, otherwise I would have automatically disabled it.
You have to re-enabled it manually.

Also, if you activated updates on your Macbook, the patched file will be overwrited and you'll need to run the MBPMid2010_GPUFix software again. So I would not recommend re-enabling the SIP.

Sorry - poor choice of words on my part. I meant do I need to re-enable SIP after running the app?

Thank you for your clarification on the SIP disable / re-enabling.

There is no need to re-enable SIP to get the patch working. Hope I understood your question correctly this time ;)

Disabled SIP
Restarted
Installed the fix
Ran Cinebench - kernel panic almost immediately running the openGL test. System Log attached - it's meaningless to me.

I have not re-enabled the SIP.

Damned, when you patched, what was the message showed in the log section of the application? Does it says that the Mac was patched successfully or it failed?
[doublepost=1494006735][/doublepost]I didn't have a single kernel panic since I applied the fix. This is weird.
[doublepost=1494006933][/doublepost]Do you have the last version of the application? The version 0.1.1 does not show any error message when the password entered is wrong. The new version 0.2.0 asks for password when authentification failed.

The dialog said successful installation.

I downloaded on 5/3 - I think it is ver 0.1.1

It did ask for password, Which I presumed was my password for the machine.

Yes, it's the password of your session. Can you please download the new version, try to re-apply the fix and copy paste the log of the application?

Thanks

Thanks so much for this! Will it allow me to use external displays with the MacBook now? I tried and it still crashes, but I was wondering if I had to put it in discrete only mode or something like that. Thanks.

Hi, thanks for your words ! Unfortunately this fix will only work if you use the MBP screen.
Using a secondary screen will still make the MBP to crash.

You shouldn't need to change anything in Mac settings. The fix works by itself any no more modification is needed.

Hi Julian,

Thanks a lot for this program, works like a charm! :) I wanted to ask you, I am about to change the capacitor in question and was wondering how can I restore the original (non edited) version of the .kext file. In your program the "Restore defaults config" button is non clickable - https://screencast.com/t/dofa46rTn

Thanks

Unfortunately, the restoration of old Kernel file is not available in application yet. I'm working on it.
You have two choices :
  • wait for a new update of OSX : this will erase all the modification to the kernel file and replace the values by the default ones.
  • restore manually by changing the kernel file and loading with Kext Utility (I can help you with that if you wish).

What do you prefer ?

EDIT : You can also use recovery feature explained here : https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/43129

Reboot your Mac. When you hear the boot chime, hold the COMMAND + R keys. You will enter the Lion Recovery environment. From there, simply choose to reinstall Lion. It will simply remove the current system and replace it with a fresh copy. None of your data will be deleted or moved. The only thing that will be replaced will be the core system files. There is no longer any need to make backups, migrate your data, or mess with partitioning.

If you'd like to read more about the Lion Recovery function, go here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718

Hey Julian,

Thanks for the quick response. I found in other theme, someone has mentioned to run this command in Terminal: RM -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext


Maybe I can try this first?


Thanks,
