I followed the instructions. Time machine backup first, then installed NBI 0.8.4RC1, then rebooted. All looked great. Did another backup. Downloaded 10.6.3, then hit install. Lots of disk activity, then a long pause, then...BOOM, it restarted, showed the NBI logo, and spinning fan. I walked away for about 5-7 minutes, then came back just in time to see it restart again...this time a familiar gray apple logo, spinning fan, and much waiting. Felt like it was failing. Wanted to restart. Kept the faith, and then...all worked out. Sound and wifi working, so far no hiccups. Running on a 10v/2GB/wifi/bluetooth
testing mirror displays tomorrow...

I applied every update but the 10.6.3, and rebooted
Downloaded NetbookInstaller 0.8.4 RC1.app.zip from here
Extracted it and ran NetbookInstaller 0.8.4
Entered my password, let it do it's thing for a while, then at the end I had to enter my password again
Manually rebooted my system and started watching Lost on my desktop
Checked the netbook 30 minutes later and I saw what looked to be a boot menu screen with the Netbook Installer logo, so I hit like spacebar/arrow keys a few times then it booted proper
I rebooted, shut down and turned on, etc. and everything seems to be running the same (still the long boot time compared to 10.5.8)

I did the upgrade of 10.6.3 from the automatic System Update and 0.8.4, I have the a06 bios and everything work fine.
I did the direct jump from 10.6.0 to 10.6.3
I have the dell mini 10v Nickelodeon

Figured I'd add in another "it works just fine for me so far" to the pile.
Downloaded and ran NBI 0.8.4 RC1. Performed a Time Machine backup then installed the update (from 10.6.2 => 10.6.3) via Software Update. Took a bit of time, but then booted just fine to the login page.
I'm using it right now to type this. No issues. Everything seems to work so far.

Updated worked fine but... - 04-02-2010, 10:29 AM
Every now and then since the update the sound doesn't work on start up.
It isn't detecting the internal speakers. This used to happen every once in a blue moon when I let it sleep for a few hours which was fixed with a restart, but now it seems to happen every time I turn the laptop on. Restarting doesn't fix it now, it may take 4 or 5 restarts before sound comes back.
I came across this in another forum post I may try it out and see how it goes (scroll to bottom of page):

Ok so I tried the method above, reverting back to the 10.6.2 audio kext did the trick. I don't know how other people didn't need to do this though.
