The latest KU uses highly modified high-speed method of repair kexts. To all kexts granted the same rights (a little more liberal, than it is necessary). This saves a lot of time and nervous when installing and configuring the MAC OS X. On the system performance, is not affected. After installing and configuring the system, if there is free time, run "Disk Utility", and repair the kexts, according to their native permissions.
- Unfortunately, "kext-dev-mode=1" and "rootless=0", these keys are no longer working for future versions of Mac OS X starting with El Capitan GM. You need disable SIP with Clover Bootloader.
- To open an unsigned application:
just right-click the app and select "Open" or (global setting) run in terminal this command: "sudo spctl --master-disable".
