Hi,

 

we are about to create our own download section in our website but have some concerns about the legal part. Are we allowed to host modified Kexts, Clover bootloaders? Of cource we won't be hosting cracked software :) Just hackintosh files.

 

 

Thanks.

If it is not legal, I am thinking about hotsing the files at a different FTP server. But will still create the download section and link the files.

 

Thanks.

It depends on the license. If the kexts are from Apple, then no, you are even not allowed to modify them, let alone host them. See here for more information.

Clover is free and open source. As long as you give credits to main developers, you are allowed to modify and host them. The modified code should also be available somewhere (IMHO).
