UPDATE: doesn;’t work with software update, need to have dmg/pkg.
Open Terminal/Finder/etc, go to System/Library/Extensions. start installing update.
Monitor System/Library/Extensions folder, once AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext appears there – remove it immideatly.
u can use this little script for it, run as root, before starting upgrade
while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done
once update finished, press ctrl-c in terminal window, to stop script, don’t press restart !
after it, open this file in textedit – /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1
find there string /System/Library/Extensions/Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext
and replace with this string /System/Library/Extensions/dsmos.kext or r3d3 if u use r3d3.
then save it.
now u can recover ur applesmbios/applehda/etc (didn;’t u forget to make backups b4 running update ?)
and finaly press restart.
on first start it will do smth, without booting to gui, then it will reboot, it can take about 3-4 mins, then it shuld boot normaly, if u didn;t forget smth.
of course it’s all for intel core 2 based cpus and intel mobos. and pc_efi.
other users can use 10.5.1 kernel/system.kext with 10.5.2 system (like amd users or pentium-d)
