So, you got this working on Alpine Ridge? Do you think you will get it working on Titan Ridge as well?

Yes, but it's not same for every motherboard. The guide will be up soon. It just eliminates the process of flashing a custom firmware and the only advantage is you can use the Thunderbolt on any supported OS. On Titan Ridge, it might be possible but currently, involved in other projects.
