    illdev reacted to crazybirdy for a file, Catalina MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch   
    Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
     
    Please read Readme-10.15.pdf first.
     
    How to finish the Catalina installation.
    1. Use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make USB Catalina Installer.
    2. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Disk Utility, format as MBR HFS+. 
        Install Catalina to blank MBR HFS+ "Target" partition.
    3. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Terminal, run the script command:
        copytempdata
    4. Boot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition on single user mode (-s), run the script command:
        hfsupdatecache
    5. Reboot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition, setup user name and login, finish the installation.
     
    Also, you need to setup Clover as BooterConfig=0x28, CsrActiveConfig=0x67
     
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    List of known issues:
    1. Some app-pkg-installers can't install to HFS+, but install to APFS fine.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
    1. Pass the MBR check, allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR partition.
    2. Pass the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
    3. Pass auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.15.
    4. This MBR-Manual-Method will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
    5. This MBR-Manual-Method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
    No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
     
    What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
    As the following....
    1. createinstallmedia method,
        needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format.
    2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
        install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR HFS+ and GUID HFS+, will never convert the partition format.
        We can manually format as MBR HFS+ or GPT HFS+ on installation screen like as 10.12.
        We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 on installation screen now.
        Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 future versions, I think so.
        It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
    3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
        End of MBR and HFS+, there is no more MBR HFS+ patch available for 10.15 native OSInstaller.

    How to make 10.15 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
    Just use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
    Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
    Read HowTo Q/A Q4. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave, Catalina?
    Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
    Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to update 10.15.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
     
    And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
     

     
    Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
    A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

    illdev reacted to BuXb for a file, Disk Utility v.13 with Debug Options for macOS Sierra & High Sierra   
    This is my mod of dimosgmx's Yosemite (10.10) Disk Utility app with the El Capitan (10.11) diskmanagementd:
     
    https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/621-disk-utility-v13-for-macos-sierrazip
     
    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

    Note: When you launch this version two icons will appear on the dock. This is normal behavior!
     
    Debug menu is available to list all partitions and mount EFI.
     
    For the nostalgic or the crazy ones ... your favorite version of Disk Utility now works on macOS Sierra.
     
    Upon launching you will need to provide password to run the scripts that make things spin.
     
    Tested on a fresh install of macOS Sierra, on an actual MacBook Pro (separate machine from the one it was modified on)
     
    Verified the following working:
     
    1. Creating an image, restoring an image, converting an image
    2. Partitioning a hard drive, erasing hard drive, restoring to hard drive
    3. Verifying disk and repairing disk
    4. Burning iso to DVD
     
    Please proceed with caution, I would like some feedback from people on errors or bugs that might come up.

    To 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

    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:
     
     
     
    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.

    Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
     
    To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
    The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.14 HFS Firmware check by crazybirdy.
     
    What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
    1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition.
    2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
    3. Patch to stop auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.14.
    4. This patched MBR OSInstaller will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
    5. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
