macOS

UnQuarantine

Adds a shortcut in the Services section of the right click menu to remove the "quarantine" attribute from downloaded programs.
Doing so prevents an error or warning when they are opened, and sometimes a very long delay.

How to use:
Extract the zip file and open the resulting file. Automator will prompt you to install it.
Then you can right click any file, folder, or selection of files, and select Services → UnQuarantine to remove the "quarantine" attribute from it.
Supports OS X 10.7-macOS 12 on Intel and Apple Silicon CPUs.

macOS Patches for Unsupported Macs

I worked with Collin Mistr (dosdude1) to create patches and drivers, including support for older GPUs and USB controllers, for running unsupported newer macOS versions on older Macs. They have been incorporated into his macOS Sierra Patcher, High Sierra Patcher, Mojave Patcher, and Catalina Patcher.

Their source code is available at the bottom of the first post of this forum thread.

ClearDownloadLog

Program that clears your Mac's log of downloaded files to protect your privacy.
Run it manually, or add it to Login Items in System Preferences → Users & Groups so it will run automatically when you log in to your computer.
Supports OS X 10.5-macOS 12 on PowerPC, Intel, and Apple Silicon CPUs (earlier versions do not keep a log of downloaded files).

iOS Jailbreak

As of 2021-10-24, my jailbreak-related projects are no longer supported and will receive no further updates. I no longer jailbreak iOS and therefore have no interest in updating them.
