Is Pandora's Box secure? is compiled from source with 80,000 lines of code, no scripts, no AppleScripts and no Platypus, is a real app:

 

 

Pandora is code signed and use an advanced Helper Tool to perform its tasks, and this using advanced APIs by Apple. How it works?

The OS check for the digital signature of the Pandora's binary, its Helper tool and the launchd-daemon. Only if on all three binaries the signature match, the OS

grant Pandora to be executed. This avoid malicius softwares to take posses of Pandora to perform unwanted operations, unlike can be happen from a app containings *poor scripts. This secure your hack, but also your Mac.

Can Pandora erase your partitions by mistake like other tools has demostrate possible as already reported (even if they assure the opposite just to justify himself)?

No.

Hermes, creating your installer does not allow you to select your current OS ie "/", but also inform you with Alert-windows if you are selecting

an internal volume or that belongs to the same disk of your current OS. Also calculate if there are enough free space before proceeding.

Not last, when you create an installer Hermes before each operations have a triple check: target Volume must be the same always, must have the

same disk identifiers and also the volume uuid must match. This happen through the use of advanced API like Diskarbitration (made by Apple).

Also you don't have to rename anything before proceed: Pandora does not have this silly limitation, also your target volume can have spaces in the name unlike someone else *poor t-app (consider that 'OS X BaseSystem' will contains spaces.. so a t-app what can do later if cannot manage blank spaces???? :hysterical: ).

In addition, Hermes does not use funcy methods like "direct install", ie running OSInstall.mpkg manually. This last is particulary foolish

since OSX need to boot an installer to install OSX.

Otherwise what?

an installer copy some vital files from its root ("/"), in a direct installation INSTEAD some files are copied from "/" of the running OS.

Is not incredibly stupid? :hysterical: (also is why you have to run it inside the same OS... otherwise no chances to make it work.. )

Also that method can cause apps to crash because they are expecting important libraries to be updated or to be there, but instead ... you will have old or missing stuff.

You are warned!

 

A lot of code, but you will see a real graphical interface with some facilities and a lot of checks to do right things! .. nothing is done by case! :)

* a script can be well done, depend who made it ;), but someone really has no idea, pay attention.

 

 

 

About Updates:

Sunday 31 July 2016

Pandora's Box is able to update itself, the click counter from the Server indicate that 68% of users usually update through Pandora it-self instead of downloading again here (a lot of downloads :)):

Well, for users with slow or mobile connection this is particularly important since you can save time or MBs to download it. In fact only newer bytes are downloaded instead of

the entire app, usually 1-2 MB.. and your Pandora will be up-to-date.

 

Furthermore, Pandora receive updates for Clover and Enoch when available, at the same time maintaining a stable release to rely on (the one contained by default in the app), plus some intermediate versions if already downloaded.

"All in One" solution for pre and post OS X installation.

Code redone from scratch, two new apps called Ares and Webkintosh:

Ares,

bootloaders configurator for both Enoch and Clover. Can edit the config.plist entirely with some facilities(as well for o.c.B.p, kernel.plist and SMBios.plist).

Clover WIKI is embedded in the config Editor to have quick access to the instructions and examples. Ability to update Enoch and Clover to latest revision available w/o update the entire app.

Ares can install the bootloader by targeting any ESP you have directly or in congiunction with the target Volume.

You can drag your config.plist directly into the Pandora's Box window, Ares will be automatically opened. What remain is to edit it and save where you like!

 

Zeus,

is now specialized in kexts installation from a large selection, but also permit you to drag your kexts (into the Pandora's interface) and let you decide where to install:

 

in any supported filesystems, in different volumes, but is also able to install in the target volume and its ESP at same time.

 

Support installation in

/System/Library/Extensions,

/Library/Extensions,

/Extra/Extensions,

/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other - 10.X (and on all OEM sub directories),

...again at same time!

 

 

Hermes,

now produces two kind of installers, one with "restore" method, other with "createinstallmedia". Both are untouched installers (Vanilla), and no kexts are added, nor the bootloader.

 

 

WebKinTosh,

a web browser to navigate hot Topics on insanelymac. Use YouTube API to show videos and users can make its own on "how to" do things using Pandora's Box.

I don't understand how to launch the software. I have installed the app but it appears nowhere, including the Applications folder. Where does it install to (I'm talking about the post-install utility) so I could open and use it?

 

Thanks.

No Kernel for 10.10.5 so extracted from the image file. That worked as far as the build went. I get the Pandora Installer screen up (on the pc), hit enter then a few lines of text scroll quickly by and it just reboots and I repeat the process.

 

Motherboard is ASUS M5897 Pro with AMD FX-4100 Quad Core 3.6GHz.

Graphics Card : AMD HD6850

Mem : 16Gb

 

Maybe it's just not compatible?

thanks the kernel will be added.

Anyway to run AMD cpu you need a patched version of the kernel, not the vanilla one. Search here for help: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forum/491-os-x-1010-yosemite/

Thanks so much for this. Unfortunately  the GUI won't see my custom AMD kernel when pointing to the proper folder.  I downloaded the El Capitan kernel from amd-osx . com. Any thoughts?
