InsanelyRepairPermission 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)


to verify:

sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -v /Volumes/Your Volume (or simply /)


to repair:

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)



sudo /path/to/InsanelyRepairPermission /


sudo /path/to/InsanelyRepairPermission  /Volumes/El Capitan


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

I'm getting the following error message....


sudo: InsanelyRepairPermission: command not found


I have the correct path by dragging it in to my Terminal window.


My MacOS is High Sierra 10.13.1
