how do I access the root directory in osx 10.9.5 (Mavricks). I get the red no access logo and Permission denied under terminal despite enabling root user and being in an administrator account. Tried Sudo ls var/root but it just asks for the password and does nothing.
mgp:var mgp$ ls agentx folders netboot spool tmptmpdbUuZwC tmptmpdbmW0Yg at jabberd networkd tmp tmptmpdbUuZwC-journal tmptmpdbmW0Yg-journal audit lib root tmptmpdb5e8iN tmptmpdbdMcpS vm backups log rpc tmptmpdb5e8iN-journal tmptmpdbdMcpS-journal webmin db mail run tmptmpdbOG3yt tmptmpdbfseF0 yp empty msgs rwho tmptmpdbOG3yt-journal tmptmpdbfseF0-journal mgp:var mgp$ cd root -bash: cd: root: Permission denied mgp:var mgp$
I understand that SIP was implemented in El Capitain so what is preventing me on my older version?
