The authenticated save for this file failed (application error code: 20004)
I got the same error this is because you are trying to edit it while its in its original folder. Copy it and make a backup in your documents then edit a version of it on the desktop once saved replace the original you will need to authenticate.

Hi,

I followed your tutorial but at the very end I get this message in the Terminal:

Ryzen-MacOS:~ luca$ sudo codesign -f -s - ~/Desktop/AppleSystemInfo
Password:
/Users/luca/Desktop/AppleSystemInfo: replacing existing signature
/Users/luca/Desktop/AppleSystemInfo: resource fork, Finder information, or similar detritus not allowed
Ryzen-MacOS:~ luca$

Is it complete or anything wrong?

Try doing it again from scratch.

Sounds like you're entering something that isn't compatible. What does the CPU show as in about this Mac?
