Dear Mac users! I have received a lot of complaints that after updating to the MacOS Mojave version, many users encountered trouble with installing apps on their computer when they got crashed without any reason. There would be a black screen showing problem details and system configuration when clicking on the app icon to run. If you are facing the same trouble when installing apps on your Mac running on Mojave version, and they get crashed, read on this post to know how to fix it on your Mac computer.
Solution to fix apps crashing on MacOS Mojave
There are two ways to fix apps crashing on MacOS Mojave.
Method 1: Disable System Integrity Protection (SIP)
- Reboot your Mac and then press & hold Command + R keys to boot your phone into recovery mode during the restart.
- Click on Terminal
- Enter the following command to temporarily disable SIP on your computer. On the next time, you reboot your device, it will automatically enable.
csrutil enable --without debug
- Type in the following command to turn off SIP completely:
- Type in Reboot
Once you disable SIP, you will no longer see apps get crashed on your Mac.
Method 2: Run Commands Through Terminal
- First, you need to install command line tools. This command only runs for one time. If you have previously installed it, just skip this step:
- Next, continue to run the following command:
sudo codesign --force --deep --sign - /Applications/name of the error app.app
- Finally, enter your device passcode and hit Enter.
If the app name has space, you need to add “\” into space. For example, Cleanmymac X is written into CleanMyMac\ X.app
