big sur – Creating bootable USB of OSX Sierra on OSX Big Sur fails

I’m trying to create a bootable usb of Sierra using Big Sur with the command

sudo /Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app

but after typing the password nothing happens and my machine eventually becomes unresponsive. I’ve tried it several times with the same result. Disk was formatted correctly etc. so not quite sure why it’s happening – any help would be much appreciated.

macos – Why do I get a ‘Remote Management’ step when installing High Sierra?

I believe that there’s an easier way, one that does incorporate some of the steps above. Here’s what worked for me:

Editing the hosts file appears to have worked all by itself. There’s no need to reboot into Recovery Mode, disable SIP or FileVault, or move/disable the plists controlling the daemons related to device enrollment and management. You can edit the hosts file in Terminal while logged in normally, although not using those “echo” commands (even typing ‘sudo echo “0.0.0.0 albert.apple.com” >> hosts’ gave the error ‘permission denied: hosts’). I googled editing the hosts file, and the trick appears to be to use the nano editor:

  1. Type in terminal: sudo nano /private/etc/hosts. Enter admin password when prompted.

  2. Use Arrow key on your keyboard to move the cursor to the last line and type the following lines:

    0.0.0.0 iprofiles.apple.com
    0.0.0.0 mdmenrollment.apple.com
    0.0.0.0 deviceenrollment.apple.com

  3. Press Control + X from keyboard to Exit.

  4. Now you will be asked to asked whether you want to save and to enter Y for yes and N for No. Type Y (be sure to do this!)

  5. Check to see whether the enrollment calls are being blocked by typing ‘sudo profiles show -type enrollment’

You should see an error like this:

(34000) Error Domain=MCCloudConfigurationErrorDomain Code=34000 “The device failed to request configuration from the cloud.” UserInfo={NSLocalizedDescription=The device failed to request configuration from the cloud., CloudConfigurationErrorType=CloudConfigurationFatalError}

That should be all there is to it! Many thanks to all those on gist.github.com who proposed various solutions.

homebrew – Upgrade of php not working on Late 2011 High Sierra

I have a late 2011 Macbook pro and want to setup my development environment.However, am struggling with php version. It is currently set to the default 7.1.16.

I was hoping to do it with brew, but I noticed that the version of brew I installed is for the latest versions of mac. So none of my brew commands are working.

How do update my php version without brew?

I tried with curl but when I check the version is still set to the default one.

curl -s https://php-osx.liip.ch/install.sh | bash -s 7.3

Or would there be a way to install a brew version that is compatible to High Sierra?

high sierra – safari can’t connect to localhost even configtest return no syntax error on Apache file

I have an iMac with High Sierra 10.13. It is an old machine so it cannot get further OS upgrade. I tried to reach localhost but it failed to connect with either Chrome or Safari. I tried looking into the httpd file, check the directory stated in the file, uncomment the line for php7. I checked the index file as well. Ran the configtest on httpd file and showed no syntax error. restarted Apache and still can’t connect. Also tried swapping the pre-update httpd file, also no joy. Anyone can help?

2012 Mac pro on High Sierra 10.13.6 doesn’t play DVDs anymore. Can this be remedied by updating driver?

So my macbook is getting on but still functioning well for everyday purposes. However the other day I took out a stack of arty DVDs from the local library and not one of them is recognized by mac, which honestly has probably not tried playing a DVD for years. I read somewhere this might be down to iDVD not working on High Sierra. Either way, has anyone else experienced this and knows of something I could do to view DVDs again without splashing out on a new machine? Software or driver etc, ideas welcome

high sierra – Apple “13 2011 MacBook Pro touchpad battery faulty issue. (10.13.6 software problem)

Recently, my school that gave me that laptop asked it back, and it removed the battery. I’m forced to use the charger but that is not the question right now.
I currently need help because it doesn’t actually show the settings in the trackpad settings, instead it thinks i’m using an iMac because it has bluetooth trackpad + keyboard connection.
The issue and the pictures:

You might see this kind of a post alot now, it’s an issue on high sierra. I recently re-installed it because of performance slow-down, actually that is not the thing i’m talking about right now.
I currently have no other idea other than downgrading to 10.12 sierra

Any ideas how to fix the trackpad?
