As a friend suggested me, I think I should precise that the SFOTT tool is or what the SFOTT is NOT.
SFOTT will “only” permit the creation of the install USB KEY to get Mavericks (and yet to come Mountain Lion I think – but have to test blabla) installed on an unsupported Mac.
You must have the Installer on the Computer running the script – at least for the creation of USB Key. Once the Key is done of course you don’t need the Installer if you only want to patch it again with another Computer to add. This means legally purchased and downloaded from the App Store concerning Mountain Lion and well as Mavericks is Free… Legally Downloaded.
that for now :
it is for 32bits Macs and relies on Tiamo’s boot.efi.
I have to check out if any 64bit Macs are not supported and if so I’ll propose an Option.
I allready – at the time of writing – made a function to check if the Mac running the Script is 64bit or 32bit. I’ll insert it tonight (GMT time) if I have time.
1) only 32bit are not allowed to get ML / Mavericks and then well The key will get the Tiamo’s boot.efi, and the 32bit 64bit will only be displayed for “information purpose”
2) Some 64bit are also “not supported” and then this will mean testing, because then I think only the .plist patch would be needed. As of now I dont see any good reason to put 32bit boot.efi on real 64bit Macs, but I may be wrong.
This would mean the boot.efi replacement part of the script could optionnal then. It will depend on the feedback I may have.
For now as the function is made I’ll include it and print the information just “FYI”.
This is indeed Important
SFOTT won’t get rid of Missing wifi Video Cards problem etc… this way out of the scope of this tool (for now at least)
I may include some functions like addind special Kext why not.
I could be enter the url of the Kext, then the tool would download it and put in on the key.
it wouldn’t I think install it on the Target Mac, but while booting on the key again we could image to install the Kext and Or Patch on the freshly installed Mac. this would be a Next step.
That’s it for this clarification about What SFOTT is NOT.
Even if I think that anyone willing to get the tool may know about it, My friend is right to tell me I should precise this. Most of This note will be part of the yet to come Help/readme file.
