I've tried everything and can't seem to get my script to run at startup. Modifying the .bashrc, .bash_profile, etc that route got me no where. Then I tried cron jobs, no luck. Then I've been pulling my hair trying to use the launchd function. I've made a launch daemon, which is allegedly the root functions, but that's no luck either. As a last try, I even tried Automator with no luck.
The file I want to run as root is: "/Users/CURRENT_USER/Dev/my_script.sh"
Here is what I have in my LaunchDaemons folder:
