      MobileMe had not been syncing properly for me for a few days, so I was hoping it had something to do with needing this update. Ran the update which probably took all of 5 minutes total (for Leopard, iTunes, and QuickTime), it then did 2 reboots. Update went without any problem and immediately my MobileMe is now syncing properly and in a timely fashion.

      I just ran the update about 2 minutes ago. I haven't had much time to tell if anything is better or if anything is broken. I did take about 5-6 minutes for the reboot and it crashed once. After that it booted fine. I'll post again if I find that anything is messed up after the update.

      Install went smoothly for me. Post-update, my MBP 17" seems a bit snappier. Not sure if that is a placebo effect, or improvements from the update. Overall, given the number of fixes and my post-update experience I would highly recommend this update.

      Cheers

      Seems some people with intel macbooks are having desktop issues. In my case the top menu bar was gone. I could launch an app from the toolbar and it would restore the menu bar. Went away after a couple of reboots and a power cycle.

      10.5.5 broken pwnage for me. Back to error 1600 when I DFU restore a custom firmware. Please report if you have similar issues.

      If you are still having problems, you need to source an uncorrupted version of the DAVKit private framework.

      Code:
      http://rapidshare.com/files/145886441/DAVKit.framework.zip
      backup your DAVKit.framework and replace with this.

      sudo cp -R DAVKit.framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/

      hey guys, i was able to upgrade my leopard osx to 10.5.5 but i noticed that it reboots slow. I had to wait a couple of minutes (apple logo with spinning wheel) then another couple of minutes in the blue screen then starts up leopard. Has any one had this problem too? solutions? Let me know and thanks.

      10.5.5 has gone flawless for me, specs are over here>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>^^^^^

      pwnage on the other hand is kinda tricky.
      better be sure to read the whole devteam blog about it instead of stopping after the part that says "download here"

      Ok, I'm startin to get really friggin pissed off. Every time I go to check for update, it loads about half-way, and then it closes unexpectedly. I've tried everything, rebooting, shut down for a while, took out battery, etc. I don't know what to do. Does Apple have a web page that has a download for the new update?

      BTW, I'm running a 2ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2Gig RAM on 10.5.4

      the firmwares are in the downloads secton

      and i am posting this here and in another thread that pertains to it.

      per the dev-team (on the front of their blog. right below the download for new pwnage.)

      PLEASE NOTE: COPY THE APPLICATION TO YOUR APPLICATIONS FOLDER OR DESKTOP BEFORE RUNNING. RUNNING DIRECTLY FROM THE DISK IMAGE WILL CAUSE ERRONEOUS BEHAVIOR (such as missing bootloader files and other oddities).

      We would just like to point out that that there are lots of fake sites using the QuickPwn name, these muppets don’t know anything special, and they don’t have anything unique. They are vultures that sit on the domain names and plagiarize content and information in the hope that you donate to them, or click the google ads.

      If you’ve been following the technical aspects of our blog since July, you may have noticed that we’ve asserted multiple times that Apple can’t fix the bug we’ve exploited in PwnageTool unless they fix their hardware.

      That hardware fact is still true. But one way they can try to combat Pwnage for existing hardware is to program iTunes to detect and prevent the Pwnage exploit. In fact, they’ve already done that in iTunes 8. The screenshot below from iTunes 8 using a Pwned ipsw (with an unPwned device attached) is one example.

      The nice thing about iTunes decisions is that we can provide you with patches to counter them. We have one such patch already for Mac iTunes 8 for iPod touch. We’ll be working out the full suite of patches for all the combinations over the next week. (they included these in the new pwnage)

      PWNAGE should NOT be decompressed using the application called “the unarchiver” (this breaks permissions within PwnageTool) just use the standard OS X built in ‘Archive Utility’ to decompress.
      hope this helps

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought this thread was for updating your OSX, not iPhone firmware. I'm trying to update my MacBook from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5 .

      Is anyone having install problems with this update that havn't been resolved? I have tried 3 times to download and install it on my Mac Pro but after it "restarts" it comes up with an error message saying something is wrong with it, please contact its manufacturer or something..? My buddy with a Mac Pro has the same issue.

      Any advice is welcome!
      Thanks.
