    I have 10.12.1 and TechTool Pro 9.0.2 and InsanelyRepairPermission 1.2. SIP is OFF.

    If i repair permissions with InsanelyRepairPermission -rt it repairs few things.

    If i run it again, it says all is ok already.

    Then i repair permissions with TTP and it finds tons of things it fixes.

    If i run it again, it says all is ok already except "private/etc/hosts" which it fixes every time. Hosts file permissions are: Me=custom, system=r&w, wheel=ro, everyone=ro. I use Gas Mask.

    If i then run InsanelyRepairPermission, it finds tons of things it fixes.

    If i run it again, it says all is ok already.

    Then i repair permissions with TTP and it finds tons of things it fixes.

    So i think if TTP repairs some permissions, InsanelyRepairPermission wants to re-fix those for some reason. And vice versa.

    Repaired files are this type of files:
    Permission for file:/System/Library/Extensions/acfsctl.kext/Contents/MacOS/acfsctl fixed.
    Permission for file:/System/Library/Extensions/ALF.kext/Contents/MacOS/ALF fixed.
    Permission for file:/System/Library/Extensions/AMD2400Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD2400Controller fixed.

    Why not use the native command:

    Code:
    sudo /usr/libexec/repair_packages --repair --standard-pkgs --volume /
    Edit: forgot this was the Sierra forum. Not sure if that command will work (I'm still on El Capitan) but you can try it.
