    Up to what point in the directory, you can move in step 2 and 3?
    You used the manual such as this?

    All the uses of "~" as part of a pathname are wrong.

    In the shell, "~" means "a user's home directory". But the file, folders, frameworks and such identified by "/System/Library/whatever" are not located in any user's home directory.
