  • 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...

      I wonder if Apple is going to attempt to block jailbreaking somehow with this update?

      Can someone check on this after they update to 10.5.6?

      Thank God for that Chess update

      now idk if this update will fix it, but when using photobooth and recording video with it, the audio only sometimes records and im left with video and no audio... it happens often enough to be frustrating so hopefully it will fix it because its not a hardware issue ive checked millions of times... any help would be appreciated!

      Gee, I still didnt update to 10.5.5 yet. That came on my used Macbook but I could not coonect to my home Windows network, now way no how. Long story but I bopught Leopard install disk and reinstalled at 10.5.4 and left it snce it works fine for me. I was seriously afraid 10.5.5 would break my network as I had read more than a few blogs with that issue.

      Well now we have several confirmed updates that 10.5.6 breaks DFU mode. One from this site, one from iSpazio, and another from ipodtouchfans. If you want to continue to jailbreak your iphone do not update to this new version until we hear from the Dev Team.

      Have NO FEAR! a USB HUB is all that is needed to go into DFU mode!

      Breaking: 10.5.6 update disables direct iPhone Pwnage jailbreak

      Make sure you buy a usb hub that has an external power supply, meaning a plug for the wall that connects to the hub and powers it.
      The lil four port hub that just plugs right into usb will not work.
      It does not have enough power to charge and get s stuck in charge on/off scenario
      mac and xp will say, iphone cannot be used with hub.
