Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?

 

DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.

 

Current Version: 2.9.4

The system dumps are saved in an organised DarwinDumperReports folder at a location of your choice using the 'Custom Path' option in the UI (the default directory is the same directory as the main application). You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.

 

There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.

Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.

 

The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper:
- ACPI tables.
- Audio codec and further info.
- Boot loaders and configuration files.
- Device-properties.
- Disk partition structure / info.
- Disk sectors (hex).
- DMI (SMBIOS).
- EDID.
- I/O Kit Registry.
- EFI Memory Map.
- EFI vars (some).
- Kernel information
- Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts).
- NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables).
- SMC Keys.
- LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps.
- RTC.
- System Profiler.
- System BIOS.
- System Log(s).
- Video BIOS.

Thanks Fabio.

And good to hear the positive feedback so far. I've since edited the opening post to remove the duplication of STLVNUB in the credits.

I've attached a revised version of DarwinDumper to the opening post.

The changes from 2.3.4 -> 2.3.6 are:

- Added detection for the version of Clover 'boot' file and CloverXXX.efi file
- Changed bootloaders.txt and diskutil html layout to include UEFI files found.
- Added detection for Clover, Windows and ELILO when finding UEFI file named BootX64.efi.
- Added cmf's oclinfo for OpenCL info dump. (Thanks Slice).
- LPSCI html tables are now collapsable.

Good point, THAT folder should be DarwinDumper App folder.

Thanks for the request. I'll see what I can do.

Good point, THAT folder should be DarwinDumper App folder.

I'll make that the default choice.
