I wiped my SSD clean, reinstalled OS X El Capitan, removed corestoreage, and went on to remove SIP using
csrutil disable in the
command+R recovery environment. (I also tried it from the installation medium) It says it was successful and that I should reboot. I do that and once logged in, I type
csrutil status and get back;
System Integrity Protection status: enabled (Custom Configuration) Configuration: Apple Internal: disabled Kext Signing: disabled Filesystem Protections: disabled Debugging Restrictions: disabled Dtrace Restrictions: disabled NVRAM Protections: disabled This is an unsupported configuration, likely to break in the future and leave your machine in an unknown state.
So, I reset the PRAM & SMC several times, rebooted afterwards several times, and did it again (several times) and I still get the same message. So..... is it disabled or not? :)
The one, possibly, weird thing, was that I installed an update to the recovery system via the App Store. It also wanted me to install Sierra but I'm not sure I want that yet. Did this "newer" version of the recovery make it not possible to disable it? I remember a less confusing message the last time I did it - like 2 years ago or more.
Also, I ran
ls -lO /usr and it said
My mac is a :
MBP retina 15" Mid 2014
By the way, I did look at this: Issue in disabling SIP (rootless) in El Capitan but running
ls -lO /usr is what causes me to be concerned still....
