    How Do I Untaint on Mac OS X?

    Well I know the Supply Crate has it's own untainter, and most of you guys would probably be referring to the VirtualBox method.
    I don't like it. The whole method for Virtual Box. ISO, downloading ISO, installing ISO, downloading correct ISO, failing with ISO. You guys must say that I'm a noob but it's all complicated for me. Really.

    Is there any other way around? You know, the usual hash.dat method? Except that I have used any software that I could and even Finder (so desperate) but I found no results of hash.dat. Someone would even pay $35 for it but gawd, there's really no sign of intelligence in Mac OS X here.

    Help would really be appreciated. Or if Face could develop and code an untainter for mac, that would be glorious.

    Hmm..I don't mean to be rude but that's totally basic. That's why I even used softwares to find the file, no luck on it though. :/

    on OS X it's called .ypp_42 and it's located in your home directory. But just deleting that file isn't gonna do shit

    -Remove ~/.ypp_42
    -Go to ~/Library/Preferences/ (Library is a hidden folder in your home directory)
    -Remove all the preference files starting with rsrc.config.* (there are 6 of them and only rsrc.config.yohoho.plist is necessary to delete, but just to be thorough)

    Now you should be untainted.. If you can't log in now go over these steps again and then change your mac address. Now you will be untainted for sure.

    I made a tool for this a while ago which you can use to delete those 7 files and change your mac address.
    edit: just PM me if you want it.
