  1. Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU: The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way. This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the tedious steps or problems of other simlar apps. TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install your bootloader of choiche on the usb (or just leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac). Features: - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process. - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers). - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly). - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too. - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal. - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code. - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk. - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you. - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool. - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update. - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer. Features that are planned for future versions: - Support for other languages, at least Italian. (To sugegst a new feature please contact me on github) Requirements: - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer). - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer. - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

    [Tool] [AppleScript] UPDD Tool

    Hi, I'm back again with another tool. As you may have seen in my thread, there is a Automator + AppleScript (thanks to @thanh) to make the reinstall/fix for UPDD, so I decided to make one application for everything with no hassle, however, since I'm not a programer, I'm just using AppleScript (for its fairly easy use and scripting). I want you to help me out to fix (also optimize and clean) this script to make it better. Here is the script: -- Start with a welcome screen + password set pwd to text returned of (display dialog ¬ "Hello there This is an AppleScript utility that will help you fix UPDD. First I need your password to continue working of this:" with title ¬ "UPDD Fix Script" with icon note ¬ default answer ¬ "" buttons {"Nope", "Continue ..."} ¬ default button 2 cancel button 1 ¬ with hidden answer) -- Now show dialog for choice set choice to (display dialog ¬ "Hello there, what do you wanna do?" buttons {"Reinstall UPDD", "Start UPDD with time fix", "Exit"} ¬ with title "What do you want to do?" cancel button 3) -- Choice selection if choice = {button returned:"Reinstall UPDD"} then -- Reinscall UPDD case display dialog ¬ "Are you sure you want to reinstall UPDD?" buttons {"No", "Sure"} ¬ default button 2 cancel button 1 set sure_inst to button returned of result -- Starting the install -- TODO: If Nope is selected, loop back to the dialog of choices if sure_inst = "Sure" then -- Install UPDD -- TODO: Add a "Working..." window WHILE it's installing set install_result to do shell script "installer -pkg /Library/UPDD_*.pkg -target /" password pwd with administrator privileges -- Show Install results + updd fix prompt display dialog install_result with title "Install Results" buttons {"OK, now UPDD fix", "OK, I'm done here"} cancel button 2 default button 1 -- UPDD Fix -- TODO: Same as the previous one tell application "UPDD Gestures" to quit saving no do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setusingnetworktime off " password pwd with administrator privileges delay 2 do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setdate '04:05:15'" password pwd with administrator privileges delay 2 tell application "UPDD Gestures" activate end tell delay 2 -- ERROR: for some reason, it may give an error. do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setdate '10:12:16' " password pwd with administrator privileges delay 2 do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setusingnetworktime on " password pwd with administrator privileges display notification "We're done." with title "We're all set." end if -- Done with UPPD Reinstall -- TODO: loop back to the choice menu else if choice = {button returned:"Start UPDD with time fix"} then -- UPDD Fix display dialog ¬ "This will bring back your maching clock back in 2015 then back to the actual internet time, this will momentally break some apps/connections (like synergy and maybe even some websites), make sure there are no active time-sensitive apps running if this can damage it or ruin your work" buttons {"Nope, stop", "OK, continue..."} default button 2 cancel button 1 with title "UPDD Rewind" set reupdd to button returned of result if reupdd = "OK, continue..." then -- TODO: Show a "Working..." window tell application "UPDD Gestures" to quit saving no do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setusingnetworktime off " password pwd with administrator privileges delay 2 do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setdate '04:05:15'" password pwd with administrator privileges delay 2 tell application "UPDD Gestures" activate end tell delay 2 do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setdate '10:12:16' " password pwd with administrator privileges delay 2 do shell script "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setusingnetworktime on " password pwd with administrator privileges display notification "We're done." with title "We're all set." -- TODO: loop back to the choice menu end if end if display dialog "Thank you for using this utility, please check insanleymac.com for more goodies!" buttons {"Thanks", "Get me to InsanelyMac"} with title "Thank you.

  3. Hey guys, Occasionally there are issues where the keyboard is extremely sluggish or drops input while typing, especially after wake. I find this to be extremely annoying, especially since I type very fast (130 wpm). A simple solution is to pull the keyboard and plug it back in, but if your rig is tucked away neat and discreet or you have a laptop it's difficult, even impossible to do so. To see if this was a hardware or software issue, I reloaded the USB kext that Apple uses. And sure enough, it's a software issue with the kext. I don't know why it occurs, which I will try to investigate a little more. But for the time being, I wrote a very simple script "usbref" that reloads the kext AppleUSBXHCI.kext. This forcefully "replugs" all USB devices connected to your computer. Please note that this also disconnects USB storage devices, so only use it when there are no active data transfer to the storage devices (or disconnect them first). This tool should also be useful when there are USB devices that refuse to disconnect. I've attached the installation script. Both the installation and usbref must be run as root (i.e. sudo). To run the command, after installing just type "sudo usbref" in Terminal. If you find any bugs with it, shoot me a PM or email. usbref.zip
