    I tried running this on El Capitan and I got this error:

    “Error! cannot write to Info.plist, there are permission problems, or you are on a read-only volume.

    This cannot run from within a read-only dmg file.”

      maybe you need to disable SIP (system integrity protection) if you google it you’ll get the answer to that
      if its a disk problem im not sure
