(OS X 10.11) Disabling System Integrity Protection and other issues

Please note that if you are using nCrypted Cloud version 1.1.15.68 or higher, there is no need to turn off System Integrity Protection. 

 

Turning Off Rootless System Integrity Protection in OS X El Capitan 10.11 +

  1. Reboot the Mac and hold down Command + R keys simultaneously after you hear the startup chime, this will boot OS X into Recovery Mode
  2. When the “OS X Utilities” screen appears, pull down the ‘Utilities’ menu at the top of the screen instead, and choose “Terminal”
  3. Type the following command into the terminal then hit return:
csrutil disable; reboot

You’ll see a message saying that System Integrity Protection has been disabled and the Mac needs to restart for the changes to take effect, and the Mac will then reboot itself automatically. Let it boot up as normal

You can also issue the command by itself without the automatic reboot like so:

csrutil disable

Checking the Status of Rootless / System Integrity Protection in OS X

If you want to know the status of rootless before rebooting or without rebooting the Mac into recovery mode, just issue the following command into the Terminal:

csrutil status

 

You’ll either see one of two messages, enabled indi:

$ csrutil status
System Integrity Protection status: enabled.

or

$ csrutil status
System Integrity Protection status: disabled

If at any time you wish to change the status of rootless, another reboot into Recovery Mode is required.

How to Re-Enable Rootless System Integrity Protection in OS X

Simply reboot the Mac again into Recovery Mode as directed above, but at the command line use the following syntax instead:

csrutil enable

Just as before, a reboot of the Mac is required for changes to take effect.
