Poor Man's Kernel Debuger

This project loads FairplayIOKit kernel driver into userspace and make it possible for LLDB to debug

How to Compile

In project folder

mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..


It has a built-in branch tracing support, before debugging in lldb, you might have to disable this feaure by comment the relevant code

How to Debug


Apple Silicon Device required, tested on 11.2_20D64, may not work on 11.3 and newer version.

Root privileges required for host_get_special_port.

Before debugging, you need to make a breakpoint, right after we notify debugger of the mannually loaded KEXT. fairplay_init can be a good breakpoint.

lldb build/uloader 
(lldb) b fairplay_init
Breakpoint 1: where = uloader`fairplay_init, address = 0x0000000100007bb8
(lldb) r
Process 30277 stopped
* thread #1, queue = 'com.apple.main-thread', stop reason = breakpoint 1.1
    frame #0: 0x0000000100007bb8 uloader`fairplay_init
->  0x100007bb8 <+0>:  sub    sp, sp, #0x50             ; =0x50 
    0x100007bbc <+4>:  stp    x29, x30, [sp, #0x40]
    0x100007bc0 <+8>:  add    x29, sp, #0x40            ; =0x40 
    0x100007bc4 <+12>: stur   x0, [x29, #-0x10]
Target 0: (uloader) stopped.

List images like a kernel debugger

(lldb) image list
[  0] 2EB7F208-4321-3545-A778-FE25D1FEB253 0x0000000100000000 /Users/pwn0rz/work/dev/fairplay/build/uloader

Set-up a breakpoint. Even watchpoint is possible :3

(lldb) b fcHfFIGhsx
Breakpoint 2: where = FairPlayIOKit`fcHfFIGhsx, address = 0x000000010056bbe8
