    Tired of fooling with this. Updated to Capitan and stopped working. Followed all advise. Disabled SIM. Uninstalled and reinstalled. All to no avail. The only good thing is I did not pay for this. As the old saying goes. You get what you pay for. I would gladly pay for something that works without having to jump through hoops to make it work.

    I got this to work in OS X EL Capitan GM. Using Clover I put in what ever the "SIP" disabling it? In the config.plist. No expert at all ..just searched .. added it and rebooted and works great. At 1st would not work at all. But now .. it does

    According to a note that is included on the website, "OS X 10.11 requires that System Integrity Protection aka "rootless" be turned off during the initial install for SIMBL". However, this has not been my experience. Despite booting into OS X Recovery mode on my iMac running 15A235d and disabling SIP, cDock refuses to functional fully unless I keep SIP disabled after the installation, and even after a reboot. In fact, even with SIP disabled, and even though I have installed both the bundles and osax in BOTH my main library as well as my Home library -- to see if I could get it to work -- there are still some quirks. More specifically, the colorful sidebar refuses to work at all, and the osax repeatedly asks for admin authorization in order to do certain things with cDock. Yes, I am the admin of my machine. On the bright side, the menubar icon works, and the themes work as well -- if I leave SIP disabled. While I obviously understand that Apple is keen on security -- and for good reason -- I must say that SIP breaking both cDock and Bartender has soured me a bit on Apple's heavy-handedness. I am wondering if after sandboxing, with SIP, Apple may be going a little too far with security. For the record, in 25 years of working on Macintosh computers, I have been infected with a virus ONE time, and that was many years ago when I was young, a new computer user, and did something rather stupid. So basically, if I want a transparent dock, I need to disable SIP. What a choice! :(
