How to Open an App as Root on a Mac

必要な工具と部品

  1. How to Open an App as Root on a Mac, Disclaimer and Risks: 手順 1、 1の画像 1
    • Most graphical applications are not designed for root access.

    • Limit yourself to specific tasks you need to execute, understand well, or you can experiment (if you don't care about your data).

    • One wrong move can cost you: inaccessible files, application crashes, or security vulnerabilities.

    • You will need an administrator account!

  2. How to Open an App as Root on a Mac, Open Terminal: 手順 2、 1の画像 1
    • Open Terminal.

    • Log into an administrator account on your computer. Go to Applications → Utilities and launch Terminal.

    • This administrator account must have a non-blank password, or Terminal will not allow you to access root privileges.

  3. How to Open an App as Root on a Mac, Open the app's package contents: 手順 3、 1の画像 1
    • Open the application's package contents.

    • Locate the application in Finder. Right-click (or Control-click) its icon and select Show Package Contents from the drop-down menu.

  4. How to Open an App as Root on a Mac, Find the EXEC file: 手順 4、 1の画像 1
    • You should now see one or more folders inside the application. Locate the executable file inside this folder.

    • This is usually inside /Contents/MacOS.

    • The executable often has the same name as the application, but it could have another name, such as "run.sh."

    • The executable file icon is usually a black square with the word "exec" in small letters.

  5. How to Open an App as Root on a Mac, Type sudo into terminal: 手順 5、 1の画像 1
    • Type sudo followed by a space. Do not enter the command yet.

    • Make sure to enter a space after sudo

    • Do not enter the command until the next step.

  6. How to Open an App as Root on a Mac, Drag the EXEC file: 手順 6、 1の画像 1
    • Drag the executable file into the Terminal line.

    • This should automatically insert the file path to the executable file.

    • You will need to enter your password to complete the operation.

    • When you type your password, it will not show! This is for security purposes. Be assured, your password is being registered even if nothing is being displayed on screen.

Hi Robert,
I searched for executing with root-permissions, because an app can't get access to read USB-devices.
the log of the app reads as:

LIBUSB: warning [darwin_detach_kernel_driver] USB device capture requires either an entitlement (com.apple.vm.device-access) or root privilege
Error: 2] failed to claim USB interface: -3 LIBUSB_ERROR_ACCESS (Access denied (insufficient permissions))

[14:08:27.487 Camera Error: 2] failed to open transport: 1.1.2-1.1-054c.0ccc

so I thought executing with your method might help..
but it doesn't

Any tipps would be greatly appreciated

Markus
