Updating pirated os x
Anyone with a trial or illegal copy will get all the new features, including i Cloud photo sharing, Smug Mug integration, and i OS 7 filter support.9to5Mac theorizes the issue relates to boxed copies of the software not being tied into the Mac App Store system.Here is how to get Mac OS X Yosemite from the App Store if you've purchased it in the past.The installer application will be downloaded to your Applications folder (as a file called OS X Yosemite).In other words, there are legitimate reasons why you may want to get hold of a copy of El Capitan, Yosemite or whatever on your Mac.
But if you've clicked the download the button on the store, that's the equivalent of purchasing; the software will be stored in your purchase history even though no money has changed hands.) While Apple removes older operating systems from sale, they remain on the system for anybody who has bought them before.After an OS X software update, Live doesn't start correctly anymore.The OS X disk permissions have been changed by the update and haven't been correctly reset. As each copy of Aperture has a unique serial number, that suggests the App Store is unable to check if an app has been activated.
It also explains why copies that have been illegally downloaded and activated with a serial number likely used thousands of times aren't being flagged up by Apple's system: the App Store appears to only check that the software exists, without verifying where it comes from or who bought it.
More worryingly for Apple, users downloading illegal software are being given legitimate copies in exchange.
