NVIDIA Web Driver Broken After OS X Update

NVIDIAs alternate drivers for OS X usually break after a minor system update. You can fix this most of the time by modifying the following file:

/System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartup.kext/Contents/Info.plist

Change the NVDIARequiredOS to your current system version which can be found in the app System Information. The version number should look something like this:

14F1021

Write it into the file and save it (sudo access is needed).

You should now rebuild your kext cache:

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
sudo kextcache -system-caches

Reboot. Select the NVIDIA web drivers in your system settings and reboot once more. Done.
