I am working on creating a macOS 10.12 Live USB, and need to know what /System/Library/Frameworks/ frameworks Finder and IP Scanner requires (and how do I install them/track all of their files down)?

I'm making a macOS 10.12 Live creator based on dosdude1's macOS Sierra Patcher, with a few changes (such as what gets moved onto the installer). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • What is your definition of a macOS USB Live? Running macOS installed on a USB drive you can run Finder just fine. Have you tried running Finder from e.g. the UI environment of a USB macOS Installer? If from a normal boot of macOS, you double-click Finder in Activity Monitor and select the Open File and Ports tab, you might get a better picture of whats needed. That said though, it may not be a complete picture. – user3439894 Jun 5 '19 at 1:13
  • My definition of macOS Live is just plugging in a thumbdrive, running macOS Live Creator, and then being able to boot from the usb from any mac (since I am not removing the booting patch from macOS Sierra Patcher). Also, yes I have tried running Finder from a macOS Installer, it won't launch because of missing frameworks. – Sam Jun 5 '19 at 1:21

  • @user3439894 a variation of macOS Sierra Patcher by dosdude1 – Sam Jun 5 '19 at 1:54
  • If macOS Live Creator is software you're developing, then it's are off-topic here, but can be asked on Stack Overflow. – user3439894 Jun 5 '19 at 2:45
