    How to use CleanMyMac X in Apple Silicon mode?

  8. Robert says:

    Hi, ich habe Probleme mit CleanmyMax X. Und zwar mit der Rechtevergabe. Nach der Installation startete ich und wurde nach meinem Passwort gefragt. Aber mitten beim ersten Scan wurde ich abermals nach dem Passwort gefragt wegen Zusatz-Software. Hab ich gemacht. Nun werde ich im Abstand von ca. 30Sek. permanent nach dem Passwort gefragt. Der Scan unterbricht und meldet Fehler. Was kann man tun, auch eine Neuinstallation verlief genauso. Also Programmstart und permanente Passworteingabe.

  41. ChrisC976 says:

    Seems like the recent macOS Monterey update V. 12.1 (21C52) is causing havoc with this app. Booting my Mac up this morning it booted into safe mode because of some unexpected quitting. Tried to laugh the app and just keeps crashing 🙁

  51. Nickooooo says:

    hhhhhhhh Monterey is a trash os from Apple, macOS Catalina is the best and my fav os because it’s stable fast and I like the old style of macOS

    macOS Catalina I ♥︎ u

    • juan carlos says:

      hhhhh hada maktab

    • pier says:

      same for me

    • GreenYogi says:

      Lol . The general rule with Apple laptops is ‘do not upgrade your OS’.
      The MBP 16″ i own came with Catalina 10.15.4 and until now i consistently dismiss the prompts to update it to higher versions, let alone to upgrade with Big Sour or Monsteray.
      Why? Not because Cataloonie is great in any way but due to the facts that a) every new version of OSX looks a bit more like a gay clone of iOS and b) it works trouble free with the hardware in my machine, and i sure wanna keep it that way.
      Any change to the original configuration means a serious risk to run into all sorts of ‘annoying’ issues, big and small. Gotta love Apple engineering.
      Sorry for the rant Mac fanboys, but one has to face the facts and the new silicon architecture not supporting Bootcamp means i will not buy another MBP in case i outlive this one (yup, am getting old). I have learned my lesson, finally.

  59. Pier says:

    In Monterey (12.0.1) crashes continuously without starting services. Now, only working solution would seem to deactivate the sounds in Preferences / General

  60. amir says:

    Crashes every time I initiate a scan. Monterey 12.0.1

  61. John says:

  62. Eden says:

    Not Working On macOS 12.

  63. Enrico says:

    Crashes every time I initiate a scan. Monterey 12.0.1

  64. John Plat says:

    When I attempt to run the Maintenence service – the Speed Up Mail has a (!) and says “mail not set up. Task not available.” Any ideas on how to fix this?

  65. Peter says:

    not working 🙁 🙁

  66. help says:

    Keeps asking me to enter password non-stop and it fails everytime i scan

  67. yes sirrrr says:

    We need 4.9.2

  68. good man says:

    Keep In mind, you need to open the software first!!! then look at your Upper left,then open “Clean Mymac X” (beside the apple icon)!!!

    Open preferences->general->sound you will see “Play sounds for main CleanMyMac X actions” just simply uncheck it.

    Do not click the “Apple icon”!

  69. velka says:

    if crashing on Monterey at starting an analyse, go on app preferences and disable sound

  70. just want to help says:

    THis might sounds stranges but you gotta do to make it work is open preferences->general->sound you will see “Play sounds for main CleanMyMac X actions” just simply uncheck it and boom its working

  79. Udhab Kc says:

    works well for mac 12.0.1 after Uncheck ‘Play Sounds For Main CMMX Actions’

    • Nobody says:

      Thanks bro you saved the day. Here are the steps –

      Menu > CleanMyMacX > Preferences > General > Sounds > Play Sounds for main CleanMyMacX actions.

      It works perfectly on MacOS Monterey 12.0.1 after checking this option.

    • Seth says:

      How do you install the app? It closes every time I attempt to install it manually, and it instructs me to go to the terminal and use the two options but it keeps asking for a password. What’s the password?

  80. Ray Blumes says:

    Every time I try to install this on my laptop (Macbook Pro 2019) it works fine and then it simply… disappears from the computer after a few hours / one day. Any thoughts on why this happens? Running Big Sur, but also happened before update.

  81. Aaron says:

    This’s is a little bit random, but I was wondering if anyone knows a way to have CleanMyMac always have the Christmas/Winter sounds – I like those. Seems like it’s timed and only seasonal, but I’d like to be able to keep those if possible.

  82. ert says:

    i don’t work on monterey yet

  83. your welcome says:

    Click Preferences, then General.
    Uncheck ‘Play Sounds For Main CMMX Actions’

  84. merih says:

    For those having problem.

    For those with Monterey beta, unchecking the “Play sounds for basic CleanMyMac actions” checkbox in Preferences should help for the crashing.

  85. TimDaddy says:

    It still isnt M1 optimized 🙁

  86. Bill says:

    Finally works on M1 and Monterey 🙂

  87. loopsandloops says:

    I’m stuck in a loop where I’m asked to enter my password over and over again (M1 Macbook Air, iOS Big Sur 11.6)

  88. H29 says:

    Why is 4.8.9 crashing on macOS 12 while doing any task?

  89. Ronny says:

    I thought 4.8.9 was supposed to work with macOS 12 but mine is still crashing when trying to initiate any task

  90. bersan ilazaj says:

    crash with mac os monterey mac m1 how can i fix?

  91. ert says:

    please put version 4.8.7, which is compatible with macOS monterey 12

    • theoriginalalfonso says:

      honestly i like this interface the most … i really cant wait for the m1 version

      • tjb says:

        this version is already m1-compatible, TNT just doesn’t release it as a universal binary for some reason.

        • theoriginalalfonso says:

          i have no idea wat that means ! but does that mean i can download the original , remove a file or folder and addd it to the tnt version, to get it working ? sorry man im not that advanced in software development or coding or watever its called …. but im willling to try it if theirs directions or tips

  92. Nitish Malik says:

    please update to a newer version 🙁

  93. Rakesh says:

    Please update this

  94. Shady says:

    Version 4.8.4 is not compatible with MacOS beta 12 please add the new version

  95. Abhishek Thakur says:

    Version 4.8.4 is not compatible with MacOS beta 12.

  96. dinno says:

    Is the M1 version of the software going to be cracked sometime soon?

    • Theredmc says:

      its a universal app it should have an arm64 port in the same application but it doesnt, this is the problem

  97. Lucifer says:

    On 4.8.2, the ClanMyMac Menu shows “allow access to bin”. Anyone else facing the same problem? The rest of it works like a charm.

  98. Qing Feng says:

    Why the downloading page is always loading?

  99. Black Baron says:

    2.8.2 Still hits the fan sometimes on INTEL mac OS X Mojave reboot.

  100. Graham says:

    Thanks for the 4.8.2 release, however its still the Intel version and not the Universal one for better performance on M1 Macs

  101. ali says:

    Even though it’s the 4.8.1 it’s still the intel based version and not the universal one

  102. サイモン says:

    Thank you so much for updating this 🥰

  103. Graham says:

    Meh, still x2 releases behind 4.8.2

    Also, this release is still stuck on INTEL and not UNIVERSAL for M1 Macs. This was one of the key updates they touted for the 4.8x releases, in that. TNT need to up their game and keep the UNIVERSAL binary, as this TNT release still gets emulated by Rosetta which slows it down a tad

    MacPaw state in their release notes “Moving with the times, CleanMyMac X adds native support for the new Macs with M1 chip”

  104. Gabriel CORRAL says:

    4.8.1 pleaaase ! ;-; :'(

  105. taylor232 says:

    admin this version is not apple silicon one, in my m1 Mac it is still showing running under rosetta, please give us an m1 version cleanmymac

  106. Graham says:

    Please add 4.8.2

  107. Gabriel CORRAL says:

    Please add 4.8.1 for M1 Macs ! :'(

  108. LieutenantTurtles says:

    Please update to 4.8.1

  109. Black Baron says:

    CMMX 4.7.4 = My puter is sometimes not restarting properly when I do:

    • Free up purgeable space
    • Rebuild launch services
    • Repair disk permissions

    The OS X Mojave puter is still on but its not restarting. It doesn’t restart.

  110. joe mama says:

    any chance we’ll get 4.8.0 for M1 Macs? :))

  111. VintageWander says:

    Will we ever going to get CleanMyMac X version 4.8.0 for M1 Macs soon?

  112. Dexter says:

    Hi, Please update it.

  113. bob says:

    it says i need an activation key. any fix?

  114. Raging hormones says:

    is this working for M1 Macs?

  115. Black Baron says:

    4.4.7 seems to work so far. Still some very hot CPU phases by previewing web pages in localhost. Safari seems to have some heavy RAM overload problems. I use CMMX to free RAM space whenever CPU gets hot and fans are spinning like crazy.

    • Black Baron says:

      Still using 4.4.7 and checking out in disk permissions and launch services who does the better jobs. This CMMX or Disk Utility?

  116. Jerome says:
    French user recently, thank you for your work


  117. Juan Alberto says:

    great job!!! thank you very much.

  118. boogeywoogy says:

    running this on sierra and it worked perfectly! thank you so much for all of your hard work! ^^

  119. Mac says:

    When you enable background scan, that means it will scan your system over and over again in the background. If you don’t want it to scan in the background, then you should disable it.

  120. Hugo Houillon says:

    Merci ! / Thanks !

  121. The Topdog Shrimp says:

    Worked without drams.

  122. admin says:

    Update command line tools

  123. it is what is says:

    pup means “potentially unwanted program”. it does not means it contains something bad. tnt changes the app with all features enabled and sign it themselves afterward. Avast sees the signature and spits out the message and quarantines the files. All pirated apps must be somehow modified to work as paid.

  124. fightforfreedom says:

    working fine without codesign. thanks!
