I wrote a patch/utility that disables OS X's default functionality of starting iTunes when the play button is pressed. This utility basically modifies the Remote Control Daemon (
rcd) and comments out the Apple Script command to start iTunes. This has worked fine until 10.7, but with 10.8
rcd now has code signature. The patch now causes
Exception Type: EXC_CRASH (Code Signature Invalid) after the executable is patched.
Obviously, the code signature checking is working as designed, but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what options I might have. Is there a legit way to turn off this check on a single executable? I have tried turning of GateKeeper, but that, understandably, didn't do it.
Any other suggestions for disabling the play button?
