    It seems the new Sierra 10.12.4 Beta file verifying upon files like .pkg and .mkv or anything else is annoying too many people.

    And here I find a solution to solve it by completely bypassing the System Check, which may seem to be either ANGEL or EVIL choice, and you roll the dice.

    Open up terminal.app, and run this:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.LaunchServices LSQuarantine -bool NO

    IMPORTANT:
    1: Restart is required to make it work.
    2: Be aware that this effectively disables Gatekeeper and XProtect
    . (Thanks to @KALLT.)

    Hope it helps. Good luck to anyone who's stuck at this.

    UPDATED on 22 Feb:
    According to @rellimjd , it seems that macOS 10.12.4 Beta 3 have fixed this?
    Caz I haven't upgraded to this Beta 3 yet, I'm not sure if it did fix.

    In case you need it to reverse the command above, use the following code mentioned by @KALLT
    Code:
    defaults delete com.apple.LaunchServices LSQuarantine

    Yeah it really did. Your rock!
    However, if one suffers more from the verifying dialog than the risks it brings up when it is turned off, he will take it.

    Until you forget to turn it back on after the beta ends. My advice: don’t use betas if you can’t handle its bugs.

    Yeah.
    And actually I'm a non-developer user. Story begins with the desire to try the new Nightshift feature, and just to find that this new beta give me a lesson with that annoying verifying dialog problem. Dont wanna roll back to 10.12.3, and so I got to switch to turn it off.

    Thanks!

    Files you downloaded while this was turned off won’t be quarantined, so be aware of this.
