Thank you and farewell for now

As time goes on, as much as I have tried to update and support my projects, the time as come to declare all current projects as unsupported and unmaintained

It has been a fantastic journey that started all those years ago, but ultimately the development of most Apple projects ended over 5 years ago and have basically been on life support

If there is a project your interested in and the source code is not available, let me know and I will try to release it, however it would almost be better to rewrite most these projects given the age of the code

With this post, the support system will be shutting down as there are currently no active/supported projects

Once again thanks to everyone who has downloaded and supported my projects through the years, it has been an honor and privledge

InsomniaX: Security Notice

It has come to my attention that a security vulnerability has been found in InsomniaX that will allow a standard user to load code into the kernel

The same exploit may also be exploited maliciously by 3rd parties to load and exectute malicious code into the kernel without requesting administative rights of an administrator user

As this software is now abandoned and open sourced, I would recommend anyone with concerns of the security risk to uninstall InsomniaX using the uninstall intructions found at http://semaja2.net/ye-ol-projects/insomniaxinfo/

If someone is willing to maintain the code base to resolve this issue please contact me

 

Happy New Year – InsomniaX Source Code

Happy New Years!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful 2015 and the new year brings luck to everyone 🙂

InsomniaX Source Code!!!

It has been a long time coming, and after much consideration I have finally decided to release the source code to InsomniaX along with the Insomnia kext.

When I first started building InsomniaX I was still in High School (Australia) and back then I was coding in Apple Script, over the years (9 years) new features were added and InsomniaX grew into an Obj C project, whilst InsomniaX grew so did Insomnia it saw huge forks in its code base and many changes.

As such InsomniaX code base is not the cleanest, and with out much time with full time work now (and family life) it became hard to find time to maintain unless a critical bug was found. The code base also shares code with Sleepless from the result of collaboration so a big thanks goes to the Sleepless developer.

Now that the source code is free to everyone (licence pending) I hope InsomniaX can continue to grow, and some volunteers can help maintain the code and the support desk. If anyone is interested in helping please let me know and after review I will grant access to the Git/Support Desk as required.

All future offical releases will continue to be code signed by my self, and published on this site.

So with out further delay… heres the source code!
