Default Interesting thread about succesfully installing 10.6.2 - 11-11-2009, 07:51 AM

Found it at insanelywind and asked myself, if it's also practicable with our Dells...

InsanelyWind • View topic - How To Install 10.6.2 Sucessfully
1. Download the 10.6.2 update from apples website

2. Before running the updater, go into terminal and type
sudo cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel_10_6_1

3. Run the installer, but DO NOT restart

4. Type the following into terminal
sudo cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel_10_6_2
sudo cp /mach_kernel_10_6_1 /mach_kernel

5. Run any tools you need to patch your kexts etc. (For Dell 9/10 = NBI 0.8.3rc3 should be the choice).

6. Restart & enjoy!
I haven't tested it yet - first I'd like to know what you think.

Pretty sure all this does is use the old 10.6.1 kernel, and the big thing that breaks Atom in 10.6.2 is the kernel. That being said, look in the main thread for this discussion.

The post you have here is an exact copy that the MSI Wind guys ripped off of our very own meklort (probably without giving any credit or mention that they were plagiarizing his words)

At any rate, I will link to meklort's post and close this thread!
