Hi to everyone !

I need to boot the recovery OS, in order to enable code injection (for using Xtrafinder).

But i can't boot it. Here is a screenshot of the boot using the -v flag :

Thanks for your help :)

To change, disable or enable SIP add the settings to your config.plist.
config.plist/RtVariables/CsrActiveConfig

Thanks for the tip. I didn't know the Recovery OS wasn't usuable.

Recovery is useable if you put FakeSMC.kext into EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other.

Hello, thanks for opening the thread and for the answers, I was having a very hard time trying to recover my hack. I wanted to upgrade to High Sierra (again) but I ended up messing with my setup. I felt safe because before trying to upgrade, I had my latest Time Machine Backup. So I booted up with my pendrive, but it turned out that I wasn't able to restore my hack because the version I was booting up was older than the version that made the backup. So, I thought, there is no problem I reinstall Sierra and then go to recovery and use my backup, but guess what? I couldn't get to recovery mode. I did as pilgrim said and now I had access again to recovery and could install my backup.

I will bear that in mind for the next time!

Thanks again guys!
