comment Bootcamp Installation Space
@DavidAnderson on my system the recovery partition loads an image into RAM as disk1s1, and mounts this as root. This allows disk0 to be unmounted. You're right about needing to check MBR as well if you use hybrid disks.

The local recovery partition, cmd+R on boot. It allows disk0 to be unmounted so it's enough.

comment How can I back up my iphone if my touch screen is broken?
When you connect you iPhone to a new device, you have to accept the connection as trusted on the phone, which the OP can't do if the touch screen is completely broken. This solution would work only with a previously authorized computer.

comment Install El Capitan in Virtual Box for testing purposes
@smoooosher Actually Apple's SLA allows you to virtualize OSX on Apple hardware, so as long as the host is a Mac, it's allowed. "you are granted a [...] license: [...] to install, use and run up to two (2) additional copies or instances of the Apple Software within virtual operating system environments on each Mac Computer you own or control that is already running the Apple Software, for purposes of: (a) software development; (b) testing during software development; (c) using OS X Server; or (d) personal, non-commercial use."

comment Why can't I select tracks in Apple Music?
It works on my iPad Air WiFI+Cellular and on my MacBook Air mid-2013 running 10.11, so it's either a random bug or something iPhone- or iPhone-6-plus-specific.

comment Why can't I select tracks in Apple Music?
Thanks for the suggestions, but I've already tried all of those. The funny thing is that shuffle works, so there is some kind of a connection. I've submitted feedback to apple about this, so hopefully it works in the next version.

@DavidAnderson Actually since Buscar's comment was the only one, the notification gets fired automatically. The ping is only needed when there are already multiple comments from multiple users.

comment Cannot boot Mac OS X Yosemite due to libJPEG.dylib
Actually that error shows up if there are too many levels in the symbolic link. Are you sure about the symlink command, you didn't accidentally switch the places around?

comment Can I upload an iOS app from OS X running on a VM to the App Store?
Note that running a virtualized OSX outside Apple hardware is against the OSX EULA. It allows you "[...] to install, use and run up to two (2) additional copies or instances of the Apple Software within virtual operating system environments on each Mac Computer you own or control that is already running the Apple Software, for purposes of: (a) software development; (b) testing during software development; (c) using OS X Server; or (d) personal, non-commercial use."

comment Unable to re-enable Spotlight on Volume
Have you tried erasing and rebuilding the stores with mdutil -E /Volumes/Backup? Also check that there isn't a file called /Volumes/Backup/.metadata_never_index.

comment How to find Intel SKU for Mac CPUs
@Buscar웃 The site you linked doesn't contain the actual model string. For example, my Air shows Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4650U CPU @ 1.70GHz, but the site only shows "Processor: Core i7 ULT (2-core), Model: MacBook Air, Clock speed (in GHz): 1.7, L2 cache: 2×256, L3 cache: 4, L4 cache: —, CPUs: 1, Cores per CPU: 2, HT: Yes, ITB: Yes, Introduced: June 2013, Discontinued: current". The fact that the processor is a i7-4650U is missing.
