1. Download Java 7 SDK

2. Open package (it will not install because of bug in checking function)

3. Run in terminal:
pkgutil --expand "/Volumes/JDK 7 Update 67/JDK 7 Update 67.pkg" "/tmp/JDK 7 Update 67.unpkg"

cd /tmp/JDK\ 7\ Update\ 67.unpkg/

4. Open file named "Distribution"

5. Find function pm_install_check() { (it's line 70 at this moment)

7. Run in terminal:
pkgutil --flatten "/tmp/JDK 7 Update 67.unpkg" "/tmp/JDK 7 Update 67.pkg"

open "/tmp/JDK 7 Update 67.pkg"
