Unlock

https://github.com/jridgewell/unlock

Description

Unlock will allow the system to unlock and mount CoreStorage encrypted volumes during boot (and before a User logs in). In other words, this allows you to log in as a User whose home directory is on an encrypted secondary volume without any problems.

Install

  • Find the UUID of the CoreStorage Logical Volume you are trying to unlock (run diskutil cs list in the terminal and search for the LV UUID; it will be a string like: "497C771B-63FE-461F-AD7B-0BEF9A6BA718").
  • Run bash <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/jridgewell/Unlock/keychain/install.sh) in the terminal
  • You will be asked for your login password.
  • Next, enter the UUID when asked.
  • Finally, enter the passphrase you used to encrypt the volume when asked.
  • Everything should be set up! Restart your computer and log in to test.

Uninstall

  • Run bash <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/jridgewell/Unlock/keychain/uninstall.sh) in the terminal (you'll be asked for your login password) to remove all traces from the system.
