XBMC Firewall issue
So this is a collection of all the advice I found to solve the problem of Firewall Popup on XBMC
The first step is to obtaining a code signing certificate

In order to sign applications, you need to have a code signing certificate in your keychain.
If you're doing it just to modify applications for your own use (or you're a freeware or shareware developer who doesn't want the independent verification), you can generate your own certificate to use. This is done using the Keychain Access application, in the Utilities folder. Here's how:

1. Open Keychain Access.
2. Go to the Keychain Access menu, and under Certificate Assistant, choose Create a Certificate
3. Name your Certificate. (XBMC)
4. For Type, choose Self Signed Root.
5. Make sure Let me override defaults is checked and click Continue.
6. Under Serial Number, use a random number. Just make sure there is no other certificate on your system with the same name and serial number
7. Give yourself a sufficiently long validity period. For a little over 5 years, use 2000 days. For almost 11 years, choose 4000 days.
8. Under Certificate Type, choose Code Signing, and click Continue.
9. Enter your personal information on the next screen. Have fun with Organization and Organizational Unit. After all, this is for your own personal use. Don't use "Apple." I myself used something like "Orange Computer" for Organization and "Hacking Department" for Organizational Unit. Click Continue when all has been filled out.
10. For Key Pair Information, accept the defaults and click Continue.
11. For Key Usage Extension, accept the defaults and click Continue.
12. For Extended Key Usage Extension, accept the defaults and click Continue.
13. For Basic Constraints Extension, accept the defaults and click Continue.
14. For Subject Alternate Name Extension, accept the defaults and click Continue.
15. Use your "login" keychain to store the certificate and click Continue.
16. Now you have to set your certificate to be "trusted."
17. Go to your keychain, and right click (control click) on the new certificate you made and choose Get Info.
18. Open the triangle next to Trust.
19. Go down to Code Signing, and choose Always Trust.
20. Close the box. The system will ask for your admin password. Enter it and click OK.

Next step
Downloaded python 2.6 here extracted the zip file and copied FolderExtracted//Python-2.6.9/Mac/Resources/framework/Info.plist.in to /Applications/XBMC.app/Contents/Frameworks/lib/python2.6/. I renamed the file from Info.plist.in to Info.plist and ran the self-sign code mentioned earlier in this thread.

Run the code sign command on the terminal app.

codesign -s XBMC -f --deep /Applications/XBMC.app/

First time you try it will fail. And your Mac should want to install Apple’s Command Line Install Tool. That's good let the computer install it. Once installed run the command on the terminal again. codesign -s XBMC -f --deep /Applications/XBMC.app/

Then verify that it worked by running
codesign -vvv /Applications/XBMC.app/

Last but not least is to go to System Preferences, Security&Privacy, Firewall. In Firewall Options, Add XBMX.app to "allow incoming connections” If you already have XBMC on the list delete it and then add it again

This should get you most of the way there. It worked for me. Good luck
