No just reinstall. Thereís no reason to decrypt it first. Boot into recovery or using a USB stick, open disk utility, format it HFS+, and install. If you have issues with disk utility you might need to go to the command line and use diskutil to get it going again.

Yeah, decrypting it makes files more recoverable after a wipe...

Why on earth would anyone use TrueCrypt on a Mac? Or at all, given the well publicized trust issues

Yeah, it's a sad state when a closed-source solution from a major corporation is more trustworthy.

anyone an AppleScript wiz? I want to change my safari downloads folder to be ~/Downloads/$date, obviously changing it every day. I download a bunch of duplicate poo poo for work and breaking it up into days would help me figure out what the gently caress I was doing yesterday.

Lol there's at least 2 users trolling the Macrumors Mojave patching thread for unsupported Macs. Something about violating the EULA. Some people have such a weird sense of morality/loyalty/poes law.

I imagine these people constantly walking around with their back hunched in the most servile posture possible, craving punishment from their betters

Lol yeah, that's sad. Those patches are usually hacky and have drawbacks, I'd never use them but... Jeez let em do their thing, you're not Apple's lawyers

Iím pretty sure Iíve broken every EULA Iíve ever agreed to.

E: Iíve also never read a EULA, but I assume Iím breaking them somehow.

I'm sure Apple doesn't give a poo poo. They've taken no action to shutdown the Hackintosh community.

If people are willing to put up with the absolute ball ache of janky kexts and every minor update breaking something then let them. It makes the Mac experience stand up all the more, even with <keyboard baiting shitpost>.

Actually there was a company that was making USB boot memory sticks that allowed loading OSX on any PC without modifications. They got sued into bankruptcy.

They nailed the F.lux people too for trying to bullshit Xcode into sideloading precompiled apps. The dev agreement doesn’t let you distribute compiled bundles outside the App Store (unless you’re a freak and figure out how to map all the system calls at runtime without even looking at libc), but they ignore Cydia and other third-party app stores for doing the same thing. Last I checked, pretty much all those stores but Cydia were dumpster fires of malicious ads, game cheats, and cracked software, so I’m surprised Apple hasn’t done anything.

I wanted to be a neo deconstructivist, but Mom wouldn't let me.

Iím not really sure if this is a hardware or software problem at this point. I posted a while back about my early 2011 MacBook Pro 15Ē which I had replaced the battery in. Kernel_task ends up utilizing like 800-1000% CPU after it runs for a bit, to the point where even moving the pointer lags and using the system is pretty much impossible.

I decided to completely wipe it and start from scratch. Did an internet restore to 10.7 (which is what it came with). Ran fine there, no issue. Upgraded from that to El Capitan and it took a really long time to do the upgrade but seemed to run fine afterwards. So, finally I upgrade to current release of High Sierra and it has started doing it again.

I restarted it in safe mode and it does not seem to have the issue there. So I am thinking it is software related. There are a lot of posts online pointing at it either being a faulty battery or a disconnected temperature sensor as well. I did notice the fans do not seem to kick on, but the laptop isnít getting appreciably hot when this is happening.

The battery I installed in it came from Amazon, itís not an OEM battery. It had good reviews. (This laptop was a freebie with a bad battery so I was just basically trying to get it going to see if it was worth selling). I used the same brand battery in my wifeís early 2012 MacBook Pro and have had no issues with it at all.

So, Iím kind of stumped. Is there a good free diagnostic tool out there that can tell me if the temperature sensors are working?

Also is there a command line type thing that can tell me what kernel_task is doing?

Before someone says it is Spotlight indexing, when I had this problem initially a few months ago I let it sit running for several days and saw no change in the behavior.
