Utility for viewing and managing macOS
Boot and Security configuration flags
(boot_args->flags and SIP(System Integrity Protection)).
Warning! Unfortunately, managing SIP (System Integrity Protection)
for future versions of Mac OS X starting with El Capitan GM
working only with HDRecovery boot.
You need disable SIP with Clover Bootloader.
Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?
DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.
Current Version: 3.0.4
The system dumps are saved to a folder or your choice, but defaulting to the same directory as the main application. You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.
There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.
Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.
The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper: - ACPI tables. - Audio codec and further info. - Boot loaders and configuration files. - CPU info. - Device-properties. - Disk partition structure / info. - Disk sectors (hex). - DMI (SMBIOS). - EDID. - I/O Kit Registry. - EFI Memory Map. - EFI vars (some). - Kernel information - Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts). - Memory. - NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables). - SMC Keys. - LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps. - Power (Sleep/Hibernate) settings. - RTC. - System Profiler. - System BIOS. - System Log(s). - Video BIOS.

Running DarwinDumper from the command line: From Terminal, you can initiate DarwinDumper by running the following script directly.
To help with this, the UI has a Symlink option which you can click to create a symbolic link which points to the above script. DarwinDumper can then be subsequently run from the command-line by loading a new Terminal window and typing darwindumper followed by return.

DarwinDumper was originally inspired as an open project by Trauma, it has remained an open project and please keep it an open project, so if you make any changes or additions to it then please share your work here.
Please report any feedback, requests or bugs.
Please note: DarwinDumper v3 requires OS X 10.9 and newer to run in the Finder, though it should work from the command line okay on older OS versions.
The following link retains the download for v18.104.22.168 for older OS versions.
