Hi guys,
I recently got a MacBook Pro 2017 version for work and updated the Mac version to macOS Catalina (v10.15). I also received a MINIX NEO C adapter. I installed the drivers (with the following link https://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131), which went successfully.

Unfortunately, I'm still not able to use the ethernet connector neither it is possible to connect a display via the usb-c port.

Hopefully you can help me out here.

Thanks,
Thorsten

The USB-C port only supports power delivery for pass-through charging. It doesn't support display output.
Please download and install the latest Gigabit Ethernet driver from here:

I have Catalina 10.15.7 and downloaded and installed AX88179_178A_macOS_10.9_to_10.15_Driver_Installer_v2.18.0.zip but no luck on getting an external display working via HDMI. It works for about 3 seconds then the screen turns blue. Are there any other tricks to getting this to work?

Hi, trying to install the latest version v2.19.0_beta2 on Big Sur 11.0.1. but it pushes me to disable System Integrity Protection. Do you plan to release a version that would work without disabling SIP any time soon?

Same question from me. The product is dead to me, unless we can use it without disabling the System Integrity Protection.
