    Hi,

    Just learned a hard lesson.

    I was trying to install the continuity activation tool on my mid 2010 MBP.

    After following the steps mentioned, I restarted my mac and it crashed. It won't boot up anymore. I get the errors as shown in the images.

    When I try to restore my MBP using recovery mode and terminal, I get the error 'command not found' for almost all the commands like sudo and all.

    My terminal starts with " -bash-3.2#".

    Please help!:(

    The new developer of CAT 2 is currently having Kext issues. El Capitan has been proven to have a lot of changes that have hindered his and my patching software.
    Sudo and those similar may not work with the Terminal in Recovery Mode. You will have to get to the backup Kexts that the tool made and replace either manually or by reinstalling OS X El Capitan.

    Thank you for the reply.

    I re-installed OS X El Capitan using recovery mode and downloading the OS through the net. It is working fine at the moment but I have not yet tried to restart the system in fear that it might crash again and that I might have to download the file again. I am downloading a copy to create a USB disk to prevent another crash.

    Do I still need to replace the kext files that was made by the tool or was the re-install by the OS enough?
