RepairPermissions V3 – Now supports repairing permissions on macOS Mojave

Howdy! Long time no see. Apple has released macOS Mojave, the next generation of OS for Mac users, and now it’s time to get RepairPermissions updated.

>> Latest Version: 3.9.3225 @ 2018.06.05

>> Prologue

In OS X El Capitan, without `diskutil repairPermissions`, we can use `repair_packages` in /usr/libexec/ to verify and repair permissions. But now this handy command line tool has been removed from the latest macOS Sierra by Apple. Since it may not be safe to force use the `repair_packages` in macOS Sierra, it’s time for me to rewrite my `RepairPermissions` to support the new macOS Sierra.

>> Introduction

RepairPermissions is a command line tool written in Swift language to verify and repair permissions on Apple’s OS X and macOS. With newly designed APIs and data structure, RepairPermissions now supports verifying and repairing permissions on Apple’s latest macOS Mojave!

>> New Key Features

Support Apple’s latest macOS Mojave.

Dynamically optimized for multi-threading.

Support multiple boot environments.

RepairPermissions V2.0 – With repairing permissions on OS X El Capitan's whole disk supported

RepairPermissions V2.x has been deprecated.

Please use RepairPermission V3 instead.

V1.0 was not released publicly and was integrated in my FireWolf OS X PE because the only job it did was running

diskutil repairPermissions.

However, repairPermissions verb was discarded in the new DiskManagement.framework of OS X El Capitan.

So this is a new version of RepairPermissions command line tool.

 

Introduction:

RepairPermissions is an easy command line tool to repair the permissions of an OS X system volume.

 

Update Logs:

V2.0.1

Resolve an issue that RepairPermissions may not function properly under OS X Mavericks.

V2.0:

1. Repairing permissions on OS X El Capitan’s whole disk is now supported.

2. Repairing permissions under normal OS X, OS X Single-user mode, OS X Recovery is fully supported.

Realtek ALC888 OS X El Capitan Patched AppleHDA Audio Driver

 

Finally, I made my ALC888 work instead of using old AppleHDA driver.

Apple has changed the AppleHDA binary a lot, so if you are trying to use bcc’s patch-hda or toleda’s audioALC scripts, you will encounter with some issues.

(And of course you can manually modify these script to make them work fine with OS X Capitan)

Apple added a new codec id 0x11D41983 and removed 0x10EC0884, 0x1AEC87FF (or more).
