    Unlocker Next Steps

    Sooo...after waiting for over a year, with a lot of trepidation, I decided to ACTUALLY attempt to patch my ESXi 6.5.0 Update 1 using the unlocker 2.10 patch (which was pulled after multiple reports of issues with ESXi 6.5) that several others have reported here to work with their ESXi 6.5.0 Upd 1. And sure enough, it worked just fine for me. I wish I had attempted this sooner - had been afraid I'd brick my ESXi box and would lose all other non-Mac VMs. Well, YMMV but I worried for nothing. I may even try upgrading to ESXi 6.7 as I have seen isolated reports of successful patching with the same unlocker version (I know once I upgrade I will have to run unlocker again). So please count my request a couple posts above as already met :)

    Unlocker Next Steps

    Congrats on the semi-retirement. ESXi 6.5 and later support is what I would like to request.
  3. Please don't post unrelated questions from what's posted in the original post of the thread.
  4. Thanks for all your work. I have benefited immensely from unlocker and had been lurking around here for the past 4 years...but wanted to say thank you as you hang up the hat. I am hoping someone else might have the expertise to work on the ESXi 6.5 issues with unlocker. I haven't tried it yet but am nervous to try it - but it seems like a mixed bag at the moment...some are reporting success, while others have reported all their VMs, even non-Mac OS ones, freezing. I don't wish to go back to ESXi 6.0 just for this...so hopefully someone will find a solution. Regardless Dave, your work is deeply appreciated. Good luck with your new endeavors.
  5. Just a thank you to pjg61. Followed your steps and it worked like a charm.
  6. I have the same version of ESXi running. Glad to hear that your VMs are working fine (past posts on this thread indicates thateven non-MacOS VMs wouldn't start after installing unlocker but I believe that was with unlocker 2.0.8, not 2.0.9). What I really would like to know is whether you have a Mac OS VM running on ESXi, and if you don't, would you be willing to install one? Thanks for any info.
