Re: Yes, FP works in El Capitan with SIP!
Good news: after updating to 10.11.4 - I did it with the Combo Updater - the trick stays untouched, FP works like it did before!

Danke Blaubeere, you are absolutely right, there was a typo in my post - sorry for that!

Yes, FP works in El Capitan with SIP!
1) Install FinderPop 2.5.7.
2) Disable SIP (reboot in discovery mode pressing cmd-r while restarting, in Terminal type command "csrutil disable", restart normal)
3) Open /Library/ScriptingAdditions folder
4) Move the FinderPopOsax.osax file in there to the /System/Library/ScriptingAdditions directory (creating the ScriptingAdditions directory first if it doesn't exist). Don't leave the file where it was, move it, don't just copy it. You will probably be prompted for an adminstrator password.
5) Open Terminal, and type command:
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/ScriptingAdditions/FinderPop.osax
6) You'll need to enter your admin password when prompted in the Terminal window
7) Enable SIP (reboot in discovery mode again, in Terminal type command "csrutil enable", restart normal)

There you are - FinderPop DOES work in El Capitan - enjoy!

The only minor glitch I encountered so far: You will first have to highlight a file with a standard click before you can finderpop it with control click or right mouse button. Direct control click brings just the contextual menu of the desktop. But that’s really nothing compared to the comfort of having FinderPop functionality again.

[Edited by turly to use correct FinderPopOsax.osax name.]
