    Restore old app from previous itunes Backup

    Aha, hadn't heard of unpkg. I am also going to give Imazing a try. Sounds like it may do the trick. Thanks, SGilbert!

    Restore old app from previous itunes Backup

    I don’t want to restore everything, just the old app.

    Restore old app from previous itunes Backup

    Hey all - I have my iPhone 8+ that updated an app that is horrible compared to the previous version. I have the previous version on an iTunes backup on my Mac El Capitan 10.11.6 but apparently iTunes cannot restore a single application anymore. I have iTunes 12.7 on Mac and IOS 12.1 on my...

    Apple to Apple. Now that makes a whole lotta sense! Thanks Cheryl.

    Connecting iPhone 8 Plus with 2008 Mac pro desk top

    I am trying to pair my iPhone 8 Plus with my 2008 Mac pro desk top. The Mac says that it has Bluetooth but it is not pairing. Is this just something that Apple never considered doing?

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    The Mac is 10 years old, full program support isn't an option. I have been on Macs since the Macintosh Plus in 1986 and can most of the time troubleshoot what's going on. This one threw me for a loop. Once I sent the panic report to Apple support, they pointed me in the proper direction and all...

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Graphics card did it. What a long haul! I shoulda sent the crash report to Apple in the beginning. They told me in 10 minutes it was the graphics card. Lessons learned.

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Hey, I had a 50-50 shot, just I took the wrong 50. Posted the panic report to Apple (my wife may shoot me for not doing that earlier) and the report points to the NVIDIA graphics card.

    Damn! Still freezes and shuts down.

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Put the riser cards in today, also adding 8gb of RAM to the piddly 4gb I had. First noticeable difference was the Finder came right up instantly. Before, it took a good minute to open a folder or hard drive. Got the riser cards and RAM on eBay and they look absolutely brand new. 3 day delivery...

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Mac Service guy said could be the graphics card but most probably the Riser Cards. I see on eBay I can buy 2 riser cards with some RAM for around $50. That's the cheapest way to start. Better than buying a graphics card for $150+ and find out it's the riser cards.

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Well, I have the thumb drive working as a start up install drive and my Mac still will not keep running long enough to install the system. I talked to a Mac repair man who said it may be the riser cards or the GPU. I guess I’m done fussing with it and it’s time to take it in for service.

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Thanks, DeltaMac! I thought there had to be a special process to get the thumb drive bootable. That is easy to follow.

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    I will do that on my work Mac tomorrow. Actually yes it did download. Can I put it on a 16gb flash card with a USB card reader or does it need to be a thumb drive?

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Thanks Cheryl. I downloaded the file and the Mac wouldn’t stay running long enough to complete the install. I took a video with my iPhone that shows what the screen looks like when the freeze starts in but I can’t attach it here. Maybe that would give a clue as to what’s going on. Maybe this...

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    TeamViewer went just over 2 hours before I froze up and shut down. I was thinking of totally removing Firefox and Safari but now with TeamViewer locking up, I’m thinking maybe my system is corrupt. I may have to buy an El Capitan disk and do a clean new install. My nephew installed the system...

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Figure this one out. I freeze up when using Firefox or Safari. But I’ve been on TeamViewer with my Mac at work for a couple of hours just fine.

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Ah c’mon Cheryl. You’ve always had something to input. You’ve helped me out a couple of other times Tonight I was rebooting in Restore mode, attempting to reset Home Directory Permissions and ACL’s. Figured with all this rebooting it wouldn’t hurt anything. The screen started flickering like...

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    I’d really like to close out this thread! It seems the crashing is narrowed down to whenever I use either Safari or Firefox. I can be using illustrator, photoshop, indesign, whatever I need for commercial printing and design work. But once I get on the internet, give it maybe 3 minutes and bam...

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Breaking news! I found a couple of extensions that a trial VPN service had installed - tap.kext and tun.kext. Apparently they were auto loading something into the ethernet settings on every bootup. I removed these 2 kext files and have been running on Firefox, iTunes, TeamViewer for a couple of...
