How about a tool which is kind of... noticing whenever kernel has been replaced, to prevent unfortunate bricking hacked Mac install from Software Update???

Take your time. Was just wondering, and I'm sure we all appreciate your effort. Thank you!

Maurits,

That would be easy to do with a AppleScript. Make a AppleScript in script editor with the following contents:

do shell script "diskutil repairPermissions /"

And File >> Save As >> choose application bundle as the type and save. And then in System Preferences in the users panel set that application to run at startup, should work fine :(


Thanks man!

No problem ;) It works, but it will slow down your boot.

Unzips and works fine, thanks! Tested on a MBP, and a Dell Gx280.

When I saw your original post earlier today, I thought that this would be an opportunity to check out AS Studio (Never have used it). I cobbled together something similar to what you've done, with the addition of checkboxes to set the permissions on the Extensions folder and to force recreation of the Extensions cache on next boot.

I'll attach it if you like, just need to know it's ok to do so since it's your thread.

Thanks for the inspiration!

AIR.
