sudo rm -rf /System/Applications/

rm: /System/Applications/ Operation not permitted

If sudo <command> results in an “Operation not permitted” error, it’s not your computer.

PS. Dear fediverse, no need to suggest alternatives, my daily driver is a StarLabs LabTop running @elementary and I dev cross-platform/web apps that I need to test on macOS and Windows also. Thank you.

@aral definitely a long shot, but what if you run chattr -i on it? On linux rm can fail as root with the same error if the file is marked as immutable, and that command should remove immutability.


@robby Apparently you can remove it if you disable System Integrity Protection… 🙄
