Does anybody found a way to use GRASS 7 in QGIS 2.18 under MacOS?

QGIS 2.18.19-2 is the latest version packaged with GRASS 7. For many reasons, all the following versions been have packaged with GRASS 6 only. But the tools are unusable with this version because they are compatible with version 7 only.

I tried to copy the GRASS 7 folder from QGIS 2.18.19-2 into /Applications/QGIS.app/Contents/MacOS/grass7 in my 2.18.28 version, but it doesn't to work.

QGIS gives me an error, it cannot find default.qgc in /Applications/QGIS.app/Contents/MacOS/grass7/default.qgc


At the bottom of the Processing Toolbox in QGIS, click "enable additional providers". A Window called Processing options opens. Under Providers, GRASS GIS 7 commands, make sure the Activate box is ticked and the path to your Grass installation is correctly mentioned. Screenshots on my system:

Restart your QGIS and check if your tools are working now.
