  • Mac OS X 10.5.6 Is Out


    Want it? You can grab it via software update on your mac. Like usually there are quite a few updates in this version including:
    • Graphic improvements for gaming, iChat, Cover Flow, Aperture, and iTunes.
    • Some sort of Trackpad System Preference Pane for portable macs.


      oo ahh amazing -- just moved some stuff to a new prefs pane no biggie
    • Improvements in compatibility in performance for many various things like Address Book, Airport, Client Management, iChat, Mail, MobileMe, Networking, Printing, Parental Controls, Time Machine, Safari, and other various things. For full information click here.
    • Off course like every update there are a bunch of security updates packed in. For full information click here.

    Comments / Complaints about this update? Any issues with programs breaking etc? Post away

    Edit Poseidon: Multiple reports that 10.5.6 does not allow the Mac to see the iPhone in DFU mode. If you wish to continue to unlock and jailbreak your iPhone do not update at this time. It is rumored "The simplest workaround I’ve heard of for the DFU issue is to copy one or two of the 10.5.5 frameworks files over the newer ones." - MuscleNerd. Which files? I don't know yet...

      That is kinda weird it does that. If they really wanted to disable DFU there would be a better way. Personally I still have 10.4 on my trusty ole Powerbook G4. However still a little puzzling why Apple would go about it that way. LOL more so since some of the workarounds are easy to do.

      according to the Dev team blog this was probably not an intentional efforet by apple to thwart jailbreaking but a kernel issue.

      I think it will make a bigger influence on the new macbooks
