Copy POD .pkg file to your Desktop. 

1. Extract .pkg file into new folder with Terminal

- Open Terminal app

- Type pkgutil --expand

- Hit spacebar

- Drag and drop your POD .pkg file

- Type ~/

- Write destination folder name

- Hit Enter

 

(example: pkgutil --expand /Users/MyMac/Desktop/POD\ Farm\ 2.pkg ~/desktop/POD/)

In my example files was extracted to "POD" folder at my desltop  

 

2. Open newly created folder, find and modify `Distribution` file.

- Right click on file

- Open with `TextEdit.app`

- Find this line "result = my.target.systemVersion.ProductVersion >= '10.5.0';"

- Check Your Mac OS version at 'About My Mac'

- Replace version number `10.5.0` with your's (My example: result = my.target.systemVersion.ProductVersion >= '10.13.6';)

- Save file

 

3. Pack this folder into the new .pkg file.

- Open Terminal

- Type pkgutil --flatten

- Hit spacebar

- Drag and Drop this folder to terminal
- Type ~/

- Write destination path and filename

- Hit Enter

Example: pkgutil --flatten /Users/MyMac/Desktop/POD/ ~/desktop/NewPOD.pkg
 

4. Install POD from new .pkg file as usual.

5. Enjoy)))
