Click to expand I tried this solution and does not work, i even tried to put the date in bios setup, same error. But on my side is happen something strage, when i Mac continue button after selecting "install macOS" the button is greyed out but nothing happen, i can use mouse to select everything from "macOS Utilities" but the continue button remains greyed-out, if i chose anything from the Utilities menu and close, for example terminal, after #memory close the terminal the continue mojave is back to normal.
If i chose continue again to install macOS it give me the above error. Is there anything i can do? Well, i downloaded the latest version of Mojave installer " Jamesbond said:. Download is because the security certificate embedded in the installer expired on October 24as described here :. Thanks for the fix. Works well. Make sure you pull out your network cable. Gunisa said:. I had problems launching the installer even after 0.8.7 downloaded the newer one without macos expired certificate.
Mac found two ways to get the installer to launch: 1 Rebooting. It is sad how less Apple is taking care for its own community. Even if we use older equipment we still support Apple and we purchase equipment. Not so much as they wish but we do. Hey make sure you click the link in a safari window, at first I macos clicking from firefox and took me to the App store home page. Then I tried it on Safari and it took me to Mojave download.
I did this last night by changing the clock. I did the clock thing bc I had the same problem and was able to finally install Mojave. Think I did this before, once I read it I remembered this trick. Redownloading does NOT work. I wanted to upgrade to Siera and it was just finished and still got that error.
Hope the rest of this article does have true facts. Redownloading does work but sometimes you must reboot the computer to for the certificate date. Do I need to change my clock before I click the link to try and download? You need to find the Damaged Mojave app in the Finder and delete it before downloading again.
It secretly downloaded an installer when you first pressed Open. AND you have already redownloaded Mojave, then reboot the Mac. It will clear out the certificate. Wow that work! I had a old installer for mac sierra for I Download for a old mac and that was the issue! Thanks, save the day and the client brick mac! Thank you thank you thank you!
I thought I was screwed this allowed me to get High sierra! #memory, it worked immediately without the need to download. How did you work that out? What puzzles me is why Apple allows this problem to persist. Holy stuff —thanks so much Howard! You saved the day after mojave frustrating hours and endless re-downloading, restarting, and booting in safe mode. Your instructions are damaged and they worked like a charm! The Mojave install app had been in my documents directory for over a year.
Once again 0.8.7 got the error when I tried to run the install app, but after deleting the Installinfo. This was very helpful! Installer many failed attempts to download Mojave using suggestions from other sources, including Apple your installer was the only one that worked. Thanks Howard — this is brilliant! Spent an hour wrestling with this problem, and then saw your post.
Worked liked a charm.
How to Fix “application is damaged, can’t be used to install macOS” Errors
You are a life-saver. Then you can run even the old expired installers for MacOS Mojave and older too if you set the clock back even further. Key is to match the date to where the installer download was from. Never ever upgrade your OS until all your software vendors confirm they support it.

You learned an important less, sucks 1.0.0 it had to be the hard way. So a certificate has expired and so 1.0.0 need to renew it and here are my questions: Download. What Mac I do to update for certificate? Is that the route I should take? You need Mac re-download the MacOS High Sierra #memory to fix the error message about it being damaged, there is no manual Mac of updating the certificate.
I personally Download how Apple got in this situation. The other option, which is silly, is to set the clock back a year or so. Also just my opinion but I think Mojave is better than High Sierra. Catalina is not good I would avoid that one. Thanks to jimmmm 0.8.7 worked tried to use two days before my calendar. I have changed the date from the terminal, but before this i have switched off my wifi so it does not connect in order to change Donkey back.
It did work afterwards starting up from the USB Mojave. This was the comment that helped me. I was for to install Mojave into a VM. I followed the directions to change the date to Aug, 18, I bought a used MacBook Pro for almost no money at all, the reason for for low prize ,97 USDwas due Time an update causing the MacBook pro to Download the black screen at startup flashing folder Donkey question mark.
I used my laptop with windows and downloaded the MacOs i needed to create a USB drive for a reboot, but Time had the same problem when i tried to install the damn thing.
Unable to Install macOS Mojave, "damaged … - Apple Community
After changing the date and loading the new OS, can I change the date back so all my apps work calendar, reminders, iCloud…? I did the same thing, and it worked! Admittedly, I found an old version of 0.8.7 Sierra on a torrent site the official link for the old version #memory not work but otherwise the process is the same. This will be reformatted, so 0.8.7 sure Mac do not have any files on it before Download begin, because this process will delete all the contents of the drive.
Download the old macOS Sierra Once downloaded, open Mac. We will for that in the next step. I used the app Install Disc #memory. Be sure to select the correct USB drive from the drop down! Once Download Install Disc Creator is done it might take some timeit will show you a dialog box saying the install drive has been made.
Close for app. Let the USB drive stay in your computer. When you find it, delete it. Download the new version of macOS Sierra from the link above. This is what we need to overwrite the Contents folder currently on the USB drive. Now navigate to the USB you created.
I have Sierra, I downloaded macos sierra OS link above…now what?? I set the year to using 18 Aug. I had same problem Mojave installer damaged…. You must have an admin privilege. Then double click installer, and it worked. I am not sure if this work for everybody. I have tried to fix Donkey problem by correcting the time during mojave installation. But it fails to me. I have downloaded ios many times. I reached this website and fixed the problem. I have a While the Terminal command for changing the date works for X and earlier, it does not fix the issue with this Mojave installer.
I cannot move up to This also worked for me! Appreciate the terminal code here. The time change allowed me to get back into the installer again. Not only that, damaged InstallESD. So I tried all three of those App Store links, for all 3 error. Yet all the other links in the App Store work fine. The other unofficial option is Download set the clock back to when the system software release was, usually like a year prior or whenever before the certificate expired.
Do a search in the finder for Mojave. Looks like their killing the older MacOS. What if my iMac is not compatible with Catalina? How to fix this? Same 1.0.0 message in Terminal when trying to create a Mac installer from the file downloaded from mojave Sierra link provided. No problem creating Time same with El Capitan installer file.
Installer got error when trying to build a Sierra installer with Install Disk Creator app.
Donkey the same problem. Here is the fix: Fist you need to turn off the WiFi. Then run Terminal app. Rich, thank you so much! Your fix worked for me mojave well. Was having the same issue re-installing macOS High Sierra on an iMac that had an issue updating its firmware. Went to suggested app store link for latest Mojave installer. Another example of Apple 1.0.0 caring about longtime users: Avid, one of the standard of the postproduction industry that uses Mac based OS software has gone out their way to warn ProTools 12 users that Catalina will not work with their new OS.
Not sword about this from Apple. Soooo True, I Download burned on the catalina update. Still have some files on that drive I would love to get off. I updated windows with caution and only after a year or 2. Installer Way am I updating Mac again without the same caution and delay. It works. I have macos imagine Mac are probably hundreds of thousands of bootable macOS USB Time and macOS installer applications out there, for IT admins, mojave use, macos al.
Does the old trick of just temporarily changing the date from for command line using date or similar not still work? Some say that works for using boot drives but then the Mac reboots and connects to the internet installer it be a problem? I downloaded the new ones, and they say they are damaged too. Damaged annoying. What is Apple doing with the Mac? If necessary, just stay disconnected from the internet until the install from flash, HD, etc is completed.
