How to enable unsupported Thunderbolt 3 devices on the MacBook Pro using ‘TB3 Enabler' hack
TB3 enabler is a brand new hack from Khaos Tian that enables unsupported Thunderbolt 3 devices on the latest MacBook Pro.As explained by Tian, Apple impedes support for some categories of Thunderbolt 3 devices by implementing a software block. TB3 enabler allows users to bypass that software block, enabling access to previously unsupported Thunderbolt 3 devices.It just so happens that I have an “unsupported” Thunderbolt 3 dock in my possession — StarTech's Thunderbolt 3 Dual-4K Docking Station. I was really disappointed when I found out that this dock would only support Windows, but after using the TB3 enabler hack, I'm able to use the dock on macOS 10.12.1.But before you get too excited, know that there are some downsides to using this method, and remember that this Dock doesn't feature official macOS support and therefore has limitations.It's still not totally clear as to why Apple chose to implement a software block for certain Thunderbolt 3 devices, but according to an email reply from Apple, it appears to be more of a business decision surrounding certification than an outright technical decision.
