    Just updated my MB from 10.5.6 without a hitch. Also then ran SU again to get the latest Safari (although it did work for the brief few seconds I tried it after installing .7).

    DFU mode is what you put your phone into to JB etc. It's only mentioned here as there was a "problem" with OS 10.5.6 that prevented you from being able to do it.

    Did it through SU, no issues here. SU Update again to get the latest Safari 4 PB Update. DFU Mode works here without any issues.

    Updated my MacBook Air (New Nvidia type) from 10.5.6 using Software Update (10.5.6 - DFU not working) to the new 10.5.7 - no problems, two restarts and all is good.

    DFU working when my iPhone is connected directly to my Air USB.

    Whenever updating OS X it is best to always follow the procedures I had outlined in my post. These are tried and proven steps over the past 21 years and had never given anyone issues, no matter what versions of Mac OS or Macintosh computer people had.

    Updating OS X is unlike updating any other piece of software, especially OS X, since it is usually a fairly comprehensive replacement/upgrade of key files within the OS.

    Thanks vinko for your link (although I haven't ever had any problems), but I'm sure it will help a lot out there.

    You say run Disk Utility beforehand, but I was advised to always run DU afterwards, which I do. Am I wasting mine (& my Mac's) time in doing this straight away after installing new software?

    Your wisdom would be appreciated.

    Default huh? 449MB??
    Just to put some minds at ease - not everyone will have an update sized at 449MB. As evilspoons mentioned, some are 289MB (give or take) and another friend mentioned hers was 401MB. I suspect (though am absolutely not certain) it depends on which updates you've already installed, and which model Mac you have.

    My Macbook Air Updated thru the SU with no problems it took an hour or so and did the download and install accordingly. Itunes is already updated. How do I become the Administrator without having to reinstall OSX Leopard?

    If you are the sole user of your laptop, you should already be adminsitrator?

    An hour?! My Air took less than 10 mins to download and install. Are you on a slow connection?

    To answer your question you need to first understand the purpose of running "Repair Disk Permissions" from within Disk Utility.

    Since OS X is an Unix based operating system, permissions of files are very important, but sometimes; for whatever reasons, these file and folder permissions are messed up by either Apple or 3rd party applications; it is often the latter.

    Therefore ensuring the permissions are as expected by the OS is the best thing to do before allowing an OS update to update its files. The less variables you offer to the update process the happier you will be. Trust me.

    Keep in mind that sometimes the issues, resulting from bad update process, do not manifest themselves until months after the initial execution of the update, due to usage patterns. In some cases, because of this usage patterns the problems are not apparent until things get really messed up.

    This is all reasons why the procedures I had outlined are the recommended steps for applying any OS X updates on the Mac.

    Of course, there are no harm in running "Repair Disk Permissions" after an OS update, but you need to always make sure you're using the same version of Disk Utility that came with the OS you're running.

    You should never use your Mac from a user account with "Admin" rights. See my reply to Mikerlx below.

    Why do you want to be in the Administrator of your Mac? You should never use your Mac on a regular bases from an account with full "Administrator" rights.

    If you always use your Mac from the user with "Standard" rights, then if your Mac is ever hacked the hacker will only have the same rights as that user. On the other hand if you are using your Mac from a user with "Admin" rights, the hacker will have full access to your Mac; there is also "root" users, but I will not get into that.

    This is why I always set up my Macs and anyone else I helped, with at least 2 user accounts. One with full "Admin" rights, that is usually the first account created when setting up a new Mac, and the second with "Standard" user rights.

    If you ever want to login as the Administrator, you just have to choose "Log Out XXXX..." from the Apple menu and relogin with as the user with Admin rights. Alternatively, if you have "Enable fast user switching" on, you can switch user from the User menu at the top right side of the menu bar.

    Just updated to 10.5.7 from 10.5.5 today with no problems. Jailbreak works fine as my son happened to bring his friend's iPod touch home so I could fix his failed jailbreak. Pwnage and iTunes worked without a glitch.
