MacOSX 10.5.7 released

Apple just released 10.5.7 update for OSX.

to update, you can you old manual : manual

or shorter way:

1) make sure you have dsmos/appledecrypt and appleintelcpupm disabler kexts installed to /Extra

2) update

ich10r users – you dont need legacy kexts for ich10/ahci anymore, 10.5.7 supports ich10r out of box (since new macpros has ich10r), need only legacy ahciblockstorage, to fix orange icons.

Important notice, legacyhda may not work with newer applehda.kext from 10.5.7, you will need either make sure you legacyhda works with 10.5.7 or use applehda.kext from 10.5.6 (alc889a legacyhda from stickpin and friends need to be updated)

Radeonhd 4830/4890/4870×2 users – dont update yet, i will provide a manual for 48×0 series tomorrow.

its common instructions, you still need to carry abotu whatever custom drivers you have.

if  you use chameleon, or other bootloader with smbios replacement support, better to make identify of your machine to be some imac or something else, MacPro4,1 identify may result in kernel panic, or you need to remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext with this script, durring installation :

while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleTyMCEDriver.kext ; done

Good luck updating.

    Here is how I did a successful iPC 10.5.6 to 10.5.7 upgrade:

    cp -R /System/Libraries/Extensions/IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext /Extra

    cp -R /System/Libraries/Extensions/AppleDecrypt.kext /Extra

    cp -R /System/Libraries/Extensions/Dont\ Steal\ Mac\ OS\ X.kext /Extra

    cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.bak

    Install 10.5.7 via Apple Software Update

    reboot when it asks to

    F8 and for boot options: mach_kernel.bak -v -f

    When it is booted to the desktop, go ahead and mv /mach_kernel.bak /mach_kernel

    Use OSx86 Tools to repair permissions, extensions, etc (check all 8 options)

    It worked for me, using my Dell D600

    I am confused about just one thing.

    I am using iDeneb 1.4, and it uses AppleDecrypt.kext instead of dsmos.kext.

    So to use the manual update method, do I edit /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1 and replace “Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext” with “AppleDecrypt.kext”?

    I really appreciate any advice!

    Can someone write us for beginners how to install combo update 10.5.7 step by step? Because i`m newbe and i don`t understand what about kext`s and the others. If there was a step by step guide it will be too easy to me. Thanks…
