By DonkMac OS X Unlocker for VMware
The package is a combination of the Unlocker code written by Zenith432 plus some
fixes and scripts written by myself that wrap the actual unlocker code.
It has been tested against:
* Workstation 8/9/10 on Windows and Linux (32 & 64-bit versions)
* Player 4/5/6 on Windows and Linux (32 & 64-bit versions)
* Fusion 4/5/6 on Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks
* ESXi 5.0/5.1/5.5
The patch code carries out the following modifications dependent on the product
* Fix vmware-vmx and derivatives to allow Mac OS X to boot
* Fix vmwarebase .dll or .so to allow Apple to be selected during creation
* Copy darwin.iso if needed to VMware folder
Note that not all products recognise the darwin.iso via install tools menu item.
You will have to manually mount the darwin.iso for example on Workstation.
Also Player is missing vmware-vmx-debug and vmware-vmx-stats files and so an
error is shown during patching as the files are not found. This can be safely
OS X guests on ESXi patched hosts cannot be controlled from vCenter, only from
the ESXi host itself. This means power operations have to be run directly on
The vmwarebase code does not need to be patched on ESXi or OS X so you will see a
message on those systems telling you that it will not be patched.
In all cases make sure VMware is not running, and any background guests have
On Windows you will need to either run cmd.exe as Administrator or using
Explorer right click on the command file and select "Run as administrator".
install.cmd - patches VMware and copies darwin.iso tools image to VMware
uninstall.cmd - restores VMware and removes darwin.iso tools image from VMware
On Linux you will need to be either root or use sudo to run the scripts.
You may need to ensure the contents of the linux folder have execute permissions
by running chmod +x against the 4 files.
install.sh - patches VMware and copies darwin.iso tools image to VMware
uninstall.sh - restores VMware and removes darwin.iso tools image from VMware
4. Mac OS X
On Mac OS X you will need to be either root or use sudo to run the scripts.
This is really only needed if you want to use client versions of Mac OS X.
You may need to ensure the contents of the osx folder have execute permissions
by running chmod +x against the 3 files.
install.sh - patches VMware
uninstall.sh - restores VMware
You will need to transfer the zip file to the ESXi host either using vSphere client or SCP.
Once uploaded you will need to either use the ESXi support console or use SSH to
run the commands. Use the unzip command to extract the files.
<<< WARNING: use a datastore volume to run the scripts >>>
Please note that you will need to reboot the host for the patches to become active.
The patcher is embbedded in a shell script local.sh which is run at boot from /etc/rc.local.d.
You may need to ensure the contents of the esxi folder have execute permissions
by running chmod +x against the 3 files.
install.sh - patches VMware
uninstall.sh - restores VMware
1. System should have a persistent scratch partition - should be OK except for stateless
and USB boot on drives less than 4GB
2. Any changes you have made to local.sh will be lost. If you have made changes to
that file, you will need to merge them into the supplied local.sh file.
3. This option runs at boot time to patch the releavant files and it now survives
an upgrade or patch to ESXi as local.sh is part of the persisted local state.
6. Zenith432's Unlocker
In all cases the unlocker can be run without the scripts but you would need to
carry out additional actions which the scripts encapsulate for you especially on
ESXi. If you want to run the unlocker directly the parameters are:
Usage: Unlocker [-h] [-u] [target_directory]
-h: print help
-u: remove the patch
target_directory: customize location of vmx executables
On all platforms you must run it with administrator or root privileges.
The source code is provided and Zenith432 makes it freely available for
modification. I have modified the code and it is available as per Zenith432's
Thanks to Zenith432 for building the unlocker and Mac Son of Knife for all
the testing and support.

By MSoKThis is the current version of VMware Tools for OS X / macOS from the VMware CDS repository for Fusion 11.5.0
VMware are no longer including the ISO images as separate "packages" in the CDS respository as of Fusion 11.5.0, instead the ISO images are included as part of the "core" download which is 522 MB.
It is not possible to download the com.vmware.fusion.zip.tar due to upload limits.
However, I have extracted the darwin.iso and darwinPre15.iso from the "core" and uploaded to this thread.
If you prefer to download the "core" tar file and extract the ISO's they are located in the following directory in the tar file:
Please note: In the latest VMwareGfx.kext from Fusion 8.5.5 onwards VMware have discontinued the 2D-Acceleration code, and graphics performance is better now, thanks to Zenith432 for the update.
To check for the latest version visit http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/.
The various VMware Tools downloads are located under the packages folder for each version upto and including 11.1.0.
Instructions for extracting darwin.iso and darwinPre15.iso
- Download the files above
- Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar
- darwin.iso is located in the "payload" folder
- Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwinPre15.zip.tar
- darwinPre15.iso is located in the "payload" folder

By Arslan2012What is this?
This automation app generates Hackintosh installer from original Mackintosh Installer app/disk image.
Why do I need this?
If you are on a computer that does not support UEFI.
If you have hardwares on you computer that causes original installation image kernel panic.
If you have less than 2GB RAM.
If you are just too lazy to read the tutorial and install the original.
you'll need this app to alter the original installation image.
How does this work
Just drag the app/dmg file onto the image icon, click start and enjoy.
>>If you use Chameleon Bootloader, you can also drop your Chameleon Extra folder onto the app. App then will make this a Chameleon bootable image.
You're a dev?
my code is a mess, feel free to report an issue, or open up a pull request.
By ShaneeeThis application fixes Adobe CC crashes on AMD systems. Not all CC applications are supported as there aren't fixes for all them. The main aim of this was to fix Photoshop.
If you have a fix for a CC application that isn't supported by this then send me a PM and I'll include it.
This will fix the crash on startup and the Photoshop CC 2019 font crash. Just run and enter password.
By JennyDavidA tool that searches Appstore for missing macOSes.
Every year when a new macOS is released, the older ones get missing in Appstore. Making the Appstore's search button completely useless!
For example, if you are searching for Sierra or El Capitan now, you may NEVER find it anymore using the search button.
As a result, this tool was developed to resolve that issue. Here's an app that communicates with Appstore and allows you to download your desired vanilla macOS (even the older ones).
Have a great day and enjoy the tool.

By BuXbThis is my mod of dimosgmx's Yosemite (10.10) Disk Utility app with the El Capitan (10.11) diskmanagementd:
Please read his statements over there FIRST !!
This built (607) is dimosgmx's built 606 ever-so-slightly edited* by me (BugsB) for usage in High Sierra beyond 10.13.3. It thus works in 10.12 - 10.13.6 (not yet tested in Mojave because I don't have it installed). Therefore I bumped CFBundleVersion to 607 and BuildVersion to 19 to differentiate it from dimosgmx's 606/ 18 which was only compatible up to 10.13.3.
You can use it side-by-side with the default Disk Utility.
NOT WORKING (at least not in High Sierra): functions which would invoke a Finder style window, like clicks onto "New Image", "Convert", "Resize Image", "Image", "File/ New/.." etc.
In case of issues with the default (original/ stock/ vanilla) Disk Utility: run killall diskmanagementd, also supplied in this package.
If you have the SIMBL plug-in AFLOAT installed and have not included AppleScript Utility in mySIMBL's blacklist**, you MUST blacklist Disk Utility 13 (607) (see screenshot "AFLOAT users mySIMBL application blacklist")!
Virustotal result: 0 / 57
Enjoy & Greetings
* Disk Utility 13 (607).app/Contents/MacOS/loader.sh:
Added two instances of:
sudo killall diskmanagementd
** in mySIMBL: System Info/ SIMBL application blacklist (because Afloat is NOT fully compatible with Apple Scripts (parts of Disk Utility 13 (60x))
PS: let me know if it also works in Mojave. Include your EXACT version (10.14.0/ .1/ .2 /.3 BETA etc.)
By CyberdevsiMessage Fixer is an application which helps you to completely reset your iMessage and FaceTime settings. This app will remove all the preferences related to iMessage and iCloud account from your system and it will also remove the NetworkInterface preferences from your system, so please use with caution. If you are having activation issues with iMessage, this application is not the answer but if you already activated iMessage on your Mac or Hack and the Messages is acting up you can use this app to fix it.
Your iMessage history will be erased and you might need to sing back in in iMessage and FaceTime.
This is a quick guide on how to fix iMessage/Messages and FaceTime:
There are other issues that can result in imessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly like using a blacklisted Serial Number or MLB or SmUUID or simply an unactivated AppleID. If that's the case you need to use Clover Configurator 184.108.40.206 (or newer version) to rebuild your SMBIOS data with the most updated details like shown in the picture below:
All you have to do is to select the SMBIOS section and then form the SMBIOS selector choose the most compatible SMBIOS with your hardware:
Then you need to select the RtVariable section to generate the MLB based on your SMBIOS data and then just click the Generate button next to ROM to automatically generate the MLB and ROM ID based on your SMBIOS and then copy/paste the MLB from the newly generated info into the MLB box next to the ROM filed. Save your new config.plist
Once you did the steps above and save the config, close Clover Configurator and the run the iMessage Fixer app and then reboot the computer, once macOS is loaded, login into iMessage or Messages using your AppleID and hopefully you can activate your iMessage and FaceTime.
If you already signed in AppStore or iCloud using your current config.plist you might need to remove that device from iCloud in order to prevent the Account Lock Up by Apple because once you change the Serial Number, MLB and SmUUID Apple's server will lock your account in order to protect your data and you need to rest the password for your AppleID.
I hope you find this helpful.

By dimosgmxA simple app that uses GhostScript to remove the OWNER PASSWORD from pdf files.
It doesn't need to install GhostScript on your machine and doesn't need administrative privileges.
This removes restrictions like you can't save or print the pdf. It will not work with all pdf files,
especially encrypted ones.
Supports batch mode.
Tested under Sierra.
By dimosgmxThe High Sierra version of the App Store that can run in Mojave. According to my tests they can run in parallel, downloads work, access to purchased tab works.
You can easily access old macOS downloads.
It doesn't need to modify anything on the system.
You might have to open the Terminal and
xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine <Drag and Drop Old App Store.App> in order to run it
* Note: The bundle is named Old App Store.app but it will appear as App Store
By dimosgmxTo be honest I am not sure if there is a higher version of Flat Package Editor, that's the only one I was able to find and it was not working under Mojave.
As far as I can tell it is working, at least I was able to use it for what I needed it.
You might have to open the Terminal and
xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine <Drag and Drop Flat Package Editor.App> in order to run it

By DenicioQuickESP is a minimalistic and discreet ESP/EFI Mounter application. It's simple! Click to mount, and re-click to unmount.
The Preferences pane enables you to configure the following:
Enable Advanced View. Shows additional information about all discovered ESP volumes. This is helpful when you have multiple SSD/HDD installed on your system. Also you will be able to distinguish between drives with identical names.
Open ESP folder on Finder. After mounting an ESP volume, its respective folder will open on Finder. This is a convenient time-saver.
Autostart. Automatically launch the application on login. Make sure you have copied QuickESP.app into your /Applications folder.

By Micky1979Micky1979 and Mirone are glad to present you a new version of AppleHDA Patcher.app that will help you enabling sound on your Hack!
AppleHDA Patcher v1.9
AppleHDA Patcher, Jarvis ready
funny? Well, born for fun joking with Mirone about some adventures patching AppleHDA.kext.
Anyway Jarvis is there!
1- You don't need to have separate patches, now they are implemented within the app, just choose Desktop's or Laptop's.
2- Is it possible to patch AppleHDA.kext for different OS X versions, he supports all kexts from 10.7 up to 10.11 (and newer), or by default use the one in /System/Library/Extensions as base for the patches without drag anything.
3- You can create kexts through its patched files (Platforms.xml, LayoutX.xml, Info.plist for AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext )
drag all of your files, choose or type the codec to patch the binary. The process automatically start.
4- Is automatically created a full patched AppleHDA.kext + HDAEnabler.kext to be used with all bootloaders, an aDummyHDA.kext and a config.plist *sample (to be used with Clover), an HDEF patch to be used with MaciASL ready with the correct layout-id (in case you chose to patch laptops also an IRQ patch will be generated), and also you will find usefull the CodecCommander.kext + hda-verbs by Rehabman forks.
All files will be placed inside ~/Desktop/MironeAudio, just choose what you need.
5- for all steps 1, 2 and 3 you can also drag to the app interface your real config.plist to be edited where necessary.
6- The application is able to make corrections remotely updating itself when and if necessary.
The app produces various files, off course you do not have to use them all:
Use aDummyHDA.kext + edited config.plist for Clover (Ozmosis works similar)
For all other bootloader use the full patched AppleHDA.kext (+ HDAEnabler.kext or DSDT edits... not both).
Use CodecCommander.kext if the sound does not work after the sleep (wake), read more here.
aDummyHDA.kext goes in /System/Library/Extensions
Works in 10.7+
bcc9 for patch_hda.pl ported to obj-c code by Micky1979
Andy Vandijck for getcodecid command
Pike R. Alpha for the idea of the Dummy kext
Geoff Garside for the zlib implementation
Kabyl and Taruga for the HDAEnabler.kext
Mirone for all the patches
RehabMan, TimeWalker75a, The-darkvoid for the CodecCommander.kext, here.
RehabMan for it's fork of iasl 6.1 available here.

Chief Developer @Slice, new HWMonitorSMC2.app and package by @vector sigma
By chris1111This simple app is a wink that I do to all users for the new forum and especially a big thank you to everyone who worked for the new Forum
Usage: Start the programme and Log out at message prompt
Now the Status bar Icon is installed, only one clic for log in to Insanelymac
The app installed in the Applications and will still be functional unless you use the uninstall
this works with a LaunchAgents file plist installed in Library / LaunchAgents / com.InsanelyMac.plist. This file activates the status bar icon at each Log in
With this app you no longer need links hanging on the desktop, or search in Google to join the forum.
You can remove it from the right-click bar and click on Quit InsanelyMac
Note: This utility uses Default Safari to join the Forum, if you have another default browser this is what you need to do to prevent Safari from opening the page
In this case done this before installing the App
Right click on Status Bar InsanelyMac.app Show Package Contents / Contents / Resources / Right click on InsanelyMac.app then Show Package Contents / Contents / Resources / the script file you open it with TextEdit or with any other text editor.
Default is Safari:
open -a safari 'https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/'
For Google Chrome:
open -a "Google Chrome" 'https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/'
open -a Firefox 'https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/'

By Micky1979InsanelyRepairPermission is a command line that is able to repair kexts permissions in the current Volume or other Volumes as you wish.
It repair kexts permission for:
/Extra/KPKexts (since v1.1)
Usage (new version 1.1)
sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -v /Volumes/Your Volume (or simply /)
sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -r /Volumes/Your Volume
to repair and touch (will cause the kernelcache/prelinked to be rebuilt):
sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -rt /Volumes/Your Volume
Usage (version 1.0)
repairs only files that have incorrect permissions, if they are ok tells you that there are no files to be repaired.
In El Capitan you should need to boot with SIP disabled or a permissive CSR config
