      Solution to create a topic or post.   04/24/2018

      Hello guys. The majority of you are having issues to create a topic or post here. This are a problem with our current theme InsanelyMac.  Now the theme will be the Default IPS. Sorry for any inconvenience.

First off, this is a really cool site!  I really can't wait to dive into learning about how all this works.  I like the philosophy of open source, and being able to look at the code I compile.  I've spent days trying to read up before posting, but it's a bit overwhelming currently.  In the tutorials section, the first pinned post is really fascinating.

I'm wondering where to find the source code for the required software and kexts listed in the above tutorial, they mostly all seem binary apps, but I don't know quite what I'm looking at and not exactly sure as some seem a mixture of visable code and app, when I unpackage the folders.  I'd like to view and dissect all the code and tools/software required to install os x, otherwise I'm not sure I'd really fully know how this is all put together.  I passed on tonymacx86 for that reason, the more I learned about it, the more I realized it's all closed source, and started looking for alternatives.  That's when I found this site and was amazed at all the info and brilliance.  Seems like the moto of the site is for everything to be open and viewable.

 

Is there a repository I've overlooked, or specific location containing all the source code for the utilities and software?
