    Big Sur - Force RGB mode for displays

    Some users might be aware that there has been a great fix using a Ruby script to create a new EDID for your display. This is to fix an issue with some displays and Mac OS whereby it sees the display as a TV screen and is not using RGB mode for it, resulting in a very bad display quality (washed...

    How do I change an external disks ICON in Catalina?

    Both external disks connected by Thunderbolt 3 and USB3.1 to my 19,1 iMac Catalina 10.15.4 have been made both readable and writable by me the owner. I used the Apple+I window to do this. It is strange that I CAN CHANGE the ICONS of my internal 2TB SSD & my Time Machine Thunderbolt connected 1TB...

    Questions on SIP

    I am trying to configure a Late 2011 Macbook Pro with Raid 0 Boot SSDs on High Sierra as well as an updated Bluetooth 4.0 card for continuity. Continuity Activation Tool requires disabling SIP, and installing in RAID 0 (via DOSDude patcher) removes Recovery Mode, but disabling SIP requires...

    Easy way to create a Recovery Partition?

    Thanks to all readers of this post. To install Mojave in my MP 6.1 and keep HFS+, I cloned my High Sierra to an external drive and upgraded it to Mojave which made it APFS. I intended to erase the inner drive (always keeping HFS+) and clone back with CCC the Mojave. However I see no Mojave...

    SIP disable in Mojave -> kernel panic

    Hello, I learned today about the "improvement" SIP in Mojave; long story short: I have about 3Go of files in /Library/Updates that I want to get rid of. "Operation not permitted" is of course the answer in terminal and iterm (both have been granted full disk access in the system prefs, as well...

    MacBook Pro GPU failure: can't disable SIP

    From reading several threads, I am sure the AMD GPU is failing on my 2011 MacBook Pro. I have seen the instructions to boot in safe mode and use commands to eventually turn off the AMD GPU and turn on the integrated Intel GPU. Here's what I did (using the AppleMacFinder procedure...

    MacPro 3.1 / 980 Ti - 4k image shrunk (switchresx?) No screen in recovery mode

    Just got a Geforce 980 Ti and 4k tv for my old (not Hack) MacPro 2008. 4k image is too small, and no controls for scaling, so trying to use SwitchResX, but it now says no custom anything in OSX 10.11.6 (can't update further) without first disabling SIP which seems to require CMD R at boot...

    Disabling SIP

    How "dangerous" is disabling SIP if I want to install Sierra on a 2009 Mac Mini? The official limit of the 2009 Mac Mini is El Capitan but I really need Sierra and am not sure I can afford a new or even second-hand later model Mini. If I have anti-virus software like Sophos installed will that...

    Disable System Integrity Protection - How Dangerous Is It?

    Hi, I've an M-audio Project Mix audio interface that has been discontinued for a few years now. I absolutely love it though and use it every day when I record music and there's really no affordable modern alternative to it. :( Unfortunately because the drivers for it are unsigned, it won't work...

    MBP rather sluggish after some (minor) tweaking...

    Before the public version of macOS Sierra came out, I'd belonged to the public beta. When the public version was made available, I updated to it and subsequently turned off the setting that checks and installs future beta versions; however, something somewhere must not have received the message...

    Disable SIP : command not found

    dear all, My mac mini late 2012 has been upgraded to Mac OS X El Capitan. Yet recently when I tried to configure the resolution via switchresx, the system said that the system integrity protection of El Capitan prevents such act. So I started up the mac mini pressing command r and enter the...
