    just read the guide and it sounds awesome but
    how would i create a backup of the extensions folder?
    How to update to 10.5.8

    install Disabler.kext

    install this Dsmos.kext ( a bit updated to be present in mkext)

    reboot

    create backup of Extensions folder. just in case:
    Quote:
    sudo cp -rf /System/Library/Extensions /System/Library/Extensions_old
    update !

    if something is wrong with your drivers after update - u have a backup

    some info:

    for radeon HD 480 users, binary of Motmot wasnt updated, so if u used patched framebuffers, should work fine still.

    for radeon HD 48702 4890 4830 users - you will loose qe/ci/3d after update, wait for proper patch.

    Dont remove AppleIntelCPUPM.kext until install finished, or it will stop with error.

    To install kexts you can use kext helper or osx86 tools, google it

    to backup your extensions you can run terminal and type:
    sudo cp -rf /System/Library/Extensions /System/Library/Extensions_old
    or just copy the extension folder to your desktop or somewhere else

    ok so i tried osx86 tools and it seems to have successfully installed the kexts. However, when i click " About this Mac " i seem to be still running on 10.5.5 . What's going on?

    @.o; what OSX version are you running? if you are in 10.5.5 and you wanna update to 10.5.8, try updating 1st to 10.5.6 with delta update from apple
