10.9.2 – Tiamo’s boot.efi & SFOTT

Warning !

As Steven warned here Today’s 10.9.2 update mess things up.

EDIT 20140227:
I updated the script and explained some steps to get 10.9.2 working.

Le script est mis à jour et qqes explications ici pour avoir 10.9.2 fonctionnel.

here a detail

I’ll work on a “Patch system again” I previously planned but still haven’t code.
I’m sorry I took so long I didn’t code much last weeks.
I’ll post any news from my testing ASAP with 10.9.2.

So be Warned and don’t make the 10.9.2 Update for now.

Thanks to Steven again for reporting back here and having learned the hard way this update must not (yet) be applied.

Attention !

Steven nous fait part ici que

la mise à jour 10.9.2 d’aujourd’hui rechange le boot.efi
donc vous aurez une (mauvaise) surprise.

Je vais travailler sur la fonction “repatcher un système existant” que je n’ai pas fini, n’ayant pas beaucoup fait de code ces dernières semaines.
La plupart des fonctions basiques sont là donc cela ne devrait être trop dur (si tout se passe bien)…
En attendant ne faites pas (encore) la mise à jour 10.9.2

EDIT 20140226 :

for geeks and those who still have another system at hand, you can “simply” replace the boot.efi manually in CoreServices and I386 folders…. (do it in Terminal)
I’m currently working on this – I need to recreate a Key first ( yes I erased it so it takes some times) then apply the update and then test the New function… stay tuned.

Pour les geeks et ceux qui ont toujours un autre système sous la main, vous pouvez copier manuellement le boot.efi dans les dossiers CoreServices et I386 (à faire dans le terminal)

Je bosse dessus. Je dois recréer une Clé (et oui je l’ai effacé donc ça prend un peu de temps) ensuite je réinstalle Mavericks, puis je teste la nouvelle fonction… restez à l’écoute ….

    Hi, I’ll be waiting for a patch or whatever to install easily 10.9.2. Thank you for your great soft.
    In the meanwhile, can you tell me if I can make a key from Mavericks, I mean having Mavericks installer in my application folder? Basically what I would ask you is to design something that can be made/used from mavericks to update mavericks.
    I’ve got two apple computer and only my macbook pro is recent enough to accept natively Mavericks, but anyway both computer are under mavericks so I would rather prefer not to have to fool around too much using old partition with Mountain Lion etc…

    Thank you so much for your work.

    Same comment but with my name on Mac forums (Sorry to repeat, I thought it was better to let people know who I am if we meet on a forum.)

      Hey macanudo ;)

      I’ve released new version of the script see details and how-to here : http://oemden.com/?p=791

      To answer your other question I’d say but ( have not Tested ) that there no reason it would not work on Mavericks. So just install Sfott on your Mavericks MacBook Pro and should be good to go;

      As I said in my last post, The function Repatch System should work for any new version unless Apple does change more stuff…

      I’ll clean up a bit the script and will focus on my Recovery utility I’m working on. The script should be on it so it would be simpler (unless Apple does change the Recovery too, but Id on’t think it (always) does)…

    I just want to say thank you!

    Replacing the boot.efi file in both directories using terminal worked! Wheewwww…. it did scare the hell out of me after the update to 10.9.2.

    Thanks again!

      Great !

      Note that plist files have also been changed by Apple to default so they’re not patched anymore. AS you it did not prevent the sytem to boot, but it may or not make troubles.
      get the new 1.4.2 version of the script if you like and repatch your system (follow my how-to here http://oemden.com/?p=791 to get the steps – last steps for you beginning step 5 – I would say)
      you’ll have the plist files patched again.

      • Avatar John says:

        So far so good, no troubles yet but I don’t want trouble so I’ll definitely try to follow your instructions.

        Thanks so much again!!!

    I have a secondary drive that has a Carbon Copy of my SSD that I make before every update. My system of course booted from it after the SSD failed to boot, following the patch. I replaced only the i386 boot.efi via copy/paste/replace and am back up and running. I thought all the plists, etc. were only to make the installer work. The first time I had a working Mavericks on my 06 MP, I had installed Mavericks on a Hackintosh then Carbon Copy cloned that hackintosh drive (before adding any non vanilla kexts) and simply replaced the i386 boot.efi, popped it in my MP and voila. I have never had any problems with any native Mac apps or 3rd party apps. The 10.9.2 update was the first issue I have had and resolved as mentioned. I have used your great script/utility to help everyone I know do a clean install on their 06/07 MPs, thanks big for making it!

      Hi Aaron,

      Thanks for the feedback, great the script helped for the 10.9.2 update.
      it seems it’s beginning to spread a bit, I even saw a demo of the script on youtube !

      Cheers and long live to 06/07 MPs

    I want to personally thank Tiamos and you guys for the Sfott install.
    I am now running OSX 10.9.5 on my trusted MacPro 1.1 original 2006 and it is blazing fast with 11 GB of ram.
    I am so grateful for this.
    10.9.5 is very fast and performing great, can’t believe it.
    I’ve been searching for this kind of solution for so long and now it’a a reality.

    Thanks again from the bottom of my heart..love you guys…
